Trump and Melania arrive at Levi's and the teams are ushered in. Robert announces that Apex did a good job; he liked their butt stuff and their fit guide. However, their catalogue wasn't as sexy as he would have liked. Robert says that Mosaic's presentation was sexy, but they didn't do so well with the fit and universality issues. Apex wins (Ivana: "Finally!"), and Robert says that Jennifer did the best job. Yeah, tell her about it. Ivana isn't happy. She says that Jennifer didn't even understand the fit guide until she actually saw it.
Trump congratulates Jennifer, and she really should have passed on the credit, but, of course, that's too much to ask of her. Trump announces that Apex's reward is to meet Billy Joel and Apex is excited about this. Mosaic will face the boardroom, and someone will be fired. Or sometwo!
Apex is in a van on their way to meet Billy Joel. Everyone is singing "It's Still Rock and Roll to Me," badly. Please stop that. They meet Billy Joel and see the theater where Movin' Out is playing. He tells them that a Broadway show is a business and, as with every business, Broadway involves taking risks.
Billy plays "She's Got a Way" and "Lullaby," which he wrote for his daughter. Ivana says that she got choked up while he was playing "Lullaby" and kept telling herself, "Don't cry in front of Billy Joel." Billy Joel wishes Apex luck, advising them to take risks and be brave. Ivana interviews that they did take risks in the task because they hoped for a big reward, which they got.
Maria, Sandy, and Andy meet in a bedroom, where Maria tries to garner support before they head into the boardroom. She basically tells them that if they blame her for losing the task, they'll be admitting that they didn't do any work. Or they'll be admitting that you're a dictating taskmistress who can't cooperate in a team setting. Either way. She says that such a stance would be dangerous for them. It's going to be a tough fight, and she's prepared for it.
Maria interviews that Sandy didn't do enough work, and Andy seemed like he was on vacation. You may be right. But you can't blame them for bad work if they didn't do the work. Maria continues that Wesley has two losses under his belt and has demonstrated that he's a bad leader. She tells Sandy and Andy that she blames Wes for their failure, and that she'll be very clear on that in the boardroom.
In another bedroom, Wes tells Andy that he's not dumb and knows that people are plotting against him. He says that for everything someone (meaning Maria) has to say against him, he has something to say against that person. Andy tells him that he can spin things however he wants. Wes thinks that everyone is vulnerable, but Andy may be the most vulnerable. He hasn't been a hard worker except when he's in danger of losing. On top of that, Maria can't work on a team.
Wes says that he has a lot of ammo to use in the boardroom. Andy tells him that "there's no greater dictator of the future than the past." He interviews that if Wes brings him into the second boardroom, he'll fight back. He thinks Wes should go home. Mosaic heads for the boardroom.
Boardroom. Bill! Carolyn! What a great week. Trump asks Wes why he sent Kelly over to Apex when he's proven that he's a winner. Wes says that he knew the task would be creative and would deal with marketing. Though Kelly offers a lot logistically, he's not so great with marketing and creativity. Trump points out that Kelly won anyway. He asks if Wes thinks Apex might have won if Kelly were on their team. Wes isn't sure.
Maria says that she wanted to keep Kelly. She didn't like the idea of Apex having two strategists, Kelly and Kevin. Wes announces that Maria didn't speak up, but she says that she did. If I remember correctly, Kelly offered to switch sides, and while there was some discussion, it looked like Kelly was pretty sure about what he wanted to do. I'm not sure they could have stopped him.
Trump asks who is to blame for the loss of Kelly. Maria says that it wasn't Kelly's idea to go. With Maria, honesty is hardly ever heard. Andy thinks that it was Wes's idea, but he agrees with the decision, since Kelly isn't creative.
Trump asks Maria about the lack of butt shots in the catalogue. I never thought I would hear Trump ask anyone about butt shots. Wes says that Maria didn't like the shots, and Trump reminds him that he was in charge. Wes keeps agreeing with what Trump says, repeating him, and then, either making excuses or expanding on answers. Bill mentions the big Mosaic fight and Sandy tries to explain it.
Trump asks Wes if Maria is talented. He says that she is, but she's "overpromised." I'm pretty sure that's not a word. Andy says that he used Maria in a similar way when he was the project manager. Maria speaks up that everyone is talking about her except for her. The night is still young. Trump replies, "Yes, but no one cares what you have to say." Aww, he's saying what we're all thinking.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
