After shooting, Kevin and Elizabeth go back to Deutsch to work on the ads and let the rest of the team go back to the suite and rest. Elizabeth is frustrated because she doesn't like the ad, and "it's stifling her creativity." Oy. She's not willing to go with an idea she doesn't like. Kevin offers to help her out, because he agrees that if the team loses, it doesn't matter if she agreed with it or not, it's going to come down on Elizabeth. Note that Kevin is standing behind Elizabeth 100% here. Kevin comes up with that the narration says that he's tried of the same old thing, with a pictures of the police doing tactical maneuvers. It's less about the militaristic approach and more about getting a cool job. Elizabeth says she is going to have some enemies in the morning. Kevin tells her it's her choice, she's the PM. She says she won't change her mind because she was SO not happy with the original. She is SO toast.
It's locker room mania at the suite! Everyone is in towels! There's your sex, Maria! Kevin is excited about meeting with the designer at 7AM. Man, he stayed up all night and he's out to a meeting at 7! This man is GOOD. Elizabeth goes over the new ad with the team. Chris is pissed, they worked all day putting it together, and now she gives them something new. He says Elizabeth just didn't sound confident in it. Elizabeth tries to defend her new ads, and then says it's just not working. She says they should have just gone with testimonials. Ivana says if they have done that, she would have complained that they should have gone another way. She's a flip-flopper! Elizabeth says that no one would listen to her, especially Raj, so she was "forced" to go another direction again. It's important to note this for later.
Andy narrates his vision to the team, and he seems inspired. He seems to love it, in fact. Hmm. Andy stays behind in the editing room to… um, edit, and George joins him. Maria says they've stripped the sex appeal out. Apparently, the target market of 18-25 can't see past their genitals long enough to think about a career. Yeesh. Maria calls him and tells Andy that they need more sex appeal. He says the sexy part is the breaking the door down. They don't need to show cops with their shirts off straddling a motorcycle. He tells us that people aren't joining the force to get laid, they're doing it out of a sense of pride and honor. He argues his point quite eloquently while Maria pouts. Kelly agrees with Maria against Andy, what a shock. He says that it will come up in the boardroom if they lose. I'm really starting to dislike Kelly - he wants to be in control every second, which is pretty much the opposite of teamwork. Andy shakes his head and says they should try to win with what they have instead of playing strategy.
Elizabeth comes up with some more ideas because she says what they came up with the previous night is not going to fit. Kevin is upset that she's changed her mind AGAIN, after he stayed up late to support her. She tries to explain her ideas, and everyone is confused. He yells at her to tell him what to do. She wishes he would work with her and stop arguing. He wants her to make up her mind.
He tells us they're five hours away from the presentation and they don't have anything, and that the PM, Elizabeth, sucks. Is she not loving it? Elizabeth leaves, and the others are pretty sure they will lose the task and get rid of her. Someone wants to fire her and appoint a new Project Manager. Chris doesn't like the idea that she'll get immunity if they win.
Kevin confronts her to make a decision and stop changing her mind. She tells him she hasn't changed her mind, and he looks like he wants to hit something. He tells her she's about to have a coup on her hands because she can't make a decision. He says she's not doing a good job, flat out. She keeps arguing with him, and he keeps trying to tell her that he's only telling her what the team thinks - her arguments to her are doing no good. He asks if the team knows what she wants to do and she continues to tell him about her idea. This is starting to sound like a political debate. He tells her to shut up already! Whoo! He finally tells her to go and tell him exactly what she wants, and then he'll do it.
He doesn't think he was too harsh - he's an in your face guy, and he hates incompetence. He felt he had to take drastic action. As they walk back to join the others, he snaps, "You'll get no more input from me on this" and walks the other direction. Man, Kevin is ten kinds of awesome this week.<--Previous 1 2 3 4 Next-->
