Trump notes that Carolyn is torn over Sandy and Jen. Sandy wonders why they’ve been working for 13 weeks if it’s going to come down to their educations. She mentions that she has a better track record. Trump asks Kelly which woman he thinks is better. Jen speaks up that Kelly has only worked with her once. Kelly replies that she’s not him. Pleased, Trump comments to Carolyn that Kelly is “pretty tough.” He asks Kelly if Jen is weak. Kelly says that she is. Trump asks if she’s the weakest out of the whole 18. Kelly says that she is.
Jen argues that Kelly is actually worried that she’ll survive and beat him. Trump asks Kelly if he wouldn’t prefer to have the weakest competitor stick around. Kelly doesn’t think it matters, since he believes he’ll beat either Jen or Sandy. Jen pronounces this “ridiculous.” Sandy and Jen fight again and Trump lets it go for more than half a minute. Then he says that Sandy doesn’t seem to value education. He also has a problem with the way that Sandy defended herself and prefers the way that Jen both defended herself and attacked. Therefore, Sandy is fired.
On her way out, Sandy says that she still thinks she’s better than Jen. She has no regrets, though, and never realized how much she could accomplish in a short amount of time. She thinks that she made a good impression on Trump and says that you never know about the future.
For some reason, we then see Kevin get fired again. (Twist the knife a little deeper, why don’t you guys?) We see Sandy get fired again, too.
In his cab, Kevin says that he believes he was fired because of his résumé. He adds that he didn’t want to get into any fights in the boardroom. He had a great experience, had fun, and made a couple of new friends. He chose to work rather than “play the game,” and is proud of the job he did. Kevin thinks that he should have talked about which people were the best for the job rather than talk about whether Kelly was worse than him. However, he thinks that Trump probably went into the room knowing who he was firing. I think that he knew he was going to fire Kevin, but I’m not so sure he knew he was going to fire Sandy.
In her cab, Sandy says that the fighting was “excruciatingly painful.” She thinks that Jen was better at defending herself, at least according to Trump, because she had more reasons to defend herself. George gave Sandy more credit and everyone was building a case against Jen, so she had to defend herself. While that may be true, it sounds more like Sandy’s looking for a way to sleep better at night. She thinks that Jen’s only advantage was having to defend herself more. She thinks that Trump made the wrong decision, but she’s honored that she made it to the final three. She’s proud of herself and what she’s accomplished. She also hopes that Trump hasn’t seen the last of her.
Cut to Jen and Kelly going up to the top of Trump Tower after the boardroom. They drink champagne at what Jen calls the literal top of the world. She’s not happy, however, that she has to drink champagne and toast with Kelly. She explains her boardroom behavior by saying that desperate times blah blah blah. Kelly interviews that he doesn’t like Jen but had to congratulate her and eat strawberries with her on the roof. Jen jokes that she wants to throw Kelly off of the deck. He should totally tell Trump that she said that.
I can’t help contrasting these two with Bill and Kwame. The two of them toasted with champagne on the roof, but they wished each other good luck and seemed pretty genuine about it. They toasted to opportunity. They talked about how grateful they were for the opportunities they’d been given. Kwame said, “May the best man win,” and Bill replied, “I think we already have.” They were classy. Jen and Kelly are acting… well, I’m thinking of a word that rhymes with “classy,” but I’m not going to say it, because then I might not be considered classy.
Kelly says that he’s going to give 110% on the next task. That’s original. He also says that his work will be “top-notch.” Jen says that she’s motivated and excited. And she’s oh, so pretty. Did everyone notice how pretty she is? I think she wants you to remember that.
After the task assignments the next day, Jen explains that Chris, Pamela, and Stacy, her former peers, are now her employees. Jen rides in a Maybach and calls the others, telling them about their task. Her explanation for why she chose Chris is ridiculous – it’s because they have the NBA task and, simply, “he’s a guy.” Hey, Jen? Raj is a guy. John’s a guy. And you know what else? That’s a remarkably sexist attitude. I’ve known plenty of girls who like basketball. So let me just sum up my point by saying, “Shut up, Jen.”
Jen explains that she chose Pamela because she’s smart and organized. She claims that Stacy is working for her because she’s smart as well, but she seems to be overlooking the fact that Stacy was the only person left, so Jen didn’t really have a choice. She also says something about Stacy being a lawyer, but for this task, that doesn’t have anything to do with the price of milk. Jen says that “the idea of beating Kelly is just too much to resist.”<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
