After weeks of flirting with disaster, Josh and Liza finally reached a turning point in their relationship on Wednesdays Younger.

At Lizas request, the tattoo whisperer agreed to leave her out of his T Magazine interview for fear that fact checkers would uncover her real age but when a blissfully ignorant, not to mention slightly belligerent, Kelsey tore into him for failing to mention his girlfriend in the piece, he just couldnt take it anymore.

Hes gaining celebrity in his life, and he wants to be able to share it with [Liza], but he just cant, Nico Tortorella tells TVLine. Thats a big deal-breaker for him.

But dont assume that the inevitability of Josh and Lizas split made the break-up scene any easier for the actors to film.

We knew something was bound to happen after these past few episodes, but the way the scene read on paper was so much different than us doing it in person, Tortorella says. Sutton [Foster] and I are both raw, emotional people, and when we have to do any type of darker scene, we fully commit to it. When we got to work that day, we couldnt even look at each other without one of us getting emotional. Everything happening in that scene was how we were actually feeling.

Below, Tortorella takes us inside Joshs brain and previews whats to come for the newly single Brooklynite.

Whats Joshs next step?
Hes focusing on himself right now. Hes got a lot going on at the tattoo shop, and with the Times, and he just has to get back to the basics. Hes ready to start working on himself.

Im sure Gabe will be thrilled to have Liza gone.
[Laughs] I dont know, she really helped him out with that calamine lotion in the last episode. No, I think hell be excited to go out and party with Josh again.

Hell need to go buy some new bathrobes.
Im sure hell find one somewhere.

Josh is only friends with Kelsey and the others because hes dating Liza. Without her, is he still going to maintain those relationships?
We saw that a little bit when they broke up in the first season; Kelsey and Lauren came to the bar and he was like, What are you guys doing here? I think hed be open to having a relationship with them if it didnt have anything to do with her. Josh is probably pretty quick to forgive and forget and move on. Hell find something in his life to make him happy to turn him back into the Josh that everybody loves.

Since you brought up the last breakup, how is this one different?
Well, were older now, no pun intended. Were more grown up in this relationship. We know how to deal with heartbreak better, and we know what we want out of a relationship. Josh just made up his mind that this wasnt working, so he removed it from his life to live as authentically as he could.

This is kind of unrelated, but I just realized I still have Youngers all-Josh calendar sitting on my desk. How did that come about?
[Laughs] The whole thing started out as a joke. TV Land was doing our promo shoot for the second season, and they were like, Wouldnt it be funny if we did a Josh calendar? I was like, Thats not funny. Lets actually do it. The original plan was just to do different faces each month, but I was like, If were going to do this, lets do it the right way. I got my buddy hired to shoot it, and I pretty much art-directed the whole thing. I sat on art-direction phone calls for hours, getting everything set in stone. My favorite month is probably April, because I have the most clothes on.

That seems to be a running theme on Younger. How do you feel about the objectification of Josh?
Oh, Im all for it; theres a time and a place to be objectified. Its one thing if theres a character thats just serving body all of the time, but he doesnt have the talent to back it up. Thats not necessarily the situation here. Were able to have these dramatic scenes, like we do this week, but also balance it with everything else.
