We start out with Clay throwing his hissy fit in the elevator and refusing to talk to Adam. They head back up the suite, where Clay slams around and glares at Alla and Felisha. Sheesh, someone get the baby his blanky. Alla tells Felisha that he looked at them like he was thinking, “Deal with me.” They note that they’ll have to deal with him. Clay interviews that, obviously, he’s not happy. He doesn’t think that he was vindictive, but when people go after him, he goes after them.
Felisha and Alla congratulate Adam on doing a good job (and surviving the Boardroom) and the three decide to debrief without Clay. Felisha interviews that she wanted Clay to be fired. She’s afraid that now he’ll sabotage the next task for revenge. Adam tells Felisha and Alla about Clay’s hissy fit. Alla warns that he’ll be vindictive and won’t care about the team. She think she’s going to make things very hard for them.
Next up is… well, I’m not going to tell you yet. I’m saving it for the end, because it’s the best thing about this week’s extras and should have been at the end. That’s right, Yahoo! extras - I’m switching things up!
We get the Trump Lesson of the Week again. Maybe this is for people who didn’t pay attention the first time. Be loyal, everyone. Got it?
Excel is late for their meeting with the executives because Brian screwed up. Good job, boyfriend. Rebecca doesn’t think that making a bad impression on the people who will be judging their task is a good sign.
Over at Capital Edge, Felisha announces that the team needs to use action in their photo shoot. Clay says that when it’s time for the shoot, he wants Felisha and Adam to stay behind while just he and Alla go. He interviews that he wants to keep Alla close, as well as separate her from Adam and Felisha. If she’s nearby, he can control her (no, he really said that) and know that she’s not sabotaging the task or him. Interesting that he’s trying to prevent Alla from doing what she thinks he’s going to do. Also, is he going to put her in a gold bikini or something? He’s creeping me out. Clay says that you have to keep your friends close but your enemies closer. No one actually says that!
Alla and Clay leave for the shoot. Alla interviews that she knows that Clay is setting her up either to be best buddies or to fail. Felisha is no dummy either - she says that Clay is obviously trying to align himself with Alla. She thinks that he knows that Felisha does well at photo shoots and should have let her go. She adds that Clay doesn’t care about the team, he’s a “one-man player.” Clay and Alla discuss their booth with a designer. Clay brings up an idea Felisha had but he doesn’t like it. Alla interviews that Clay is a parasite. He latches on and spreads, and then you can’t get rid of him. Apparently he’s been taking his “keep Alla close” concept too far and has been following her around all day. Clay interviews that he’s trying to work as a team with people he doesn’t respect.
Later, the designer tells Felisha that Clay had some ideas that were different from hers. She tells the designer to go with Clay’s ideas, but she’s obviously not happy about it. Clay tells her that he’s just putting people’s ideas together. He says that he’s turning things over to her now, but Felisha says he’s not, since he reworked things. She interviews that she was ready to wipe the slate clean after the last task, but Clay is still Clay. He’s all about manipulative strategy. Felisha tells Clay that she feels underutilized. All he says is that that’s interesting. They go into the hallway and Felisha says that she wanted to do photography. Clay argues that no one told him that and he didn’t realize that Felisha had done photography on other tasks. Felisha adds that Clay is being buddy-buddy with Alla. She interviews that she’s been mismanaged and underutilized for half of the task. It would be better for the team if she hadn’t been there at all.
Alla works with a designer. Clay tries to change some things but Alla takes control again. Clay finally defers to her, because her Jedi mind tricks are too much for him. Felisha says that Alla is the real project manager for this task.
Capital Edge goes to see their booth. Most of them like it, but Marshawn says it’s just average and anyone could have come up with these ideas. She blames Randal, since he really drove the project. She pulls Brian aside and says that there may be four people on their team in body, but only two are there in spirit. She interviews that she didn’t think she would bring this up, but she did. Marshawn tells Brian that he’s been agreeing with anything Randal brings up. She just wants him to know that she feels that way. Brian says that he’s been relying on Randal for the Star Wars information because he has no other choice. Too bad he didn’t say, “That boy was our last hope,” and then Marshawn could say, “No. There is another.”
Marshawn tells Brian that she just wanted him to include everyone. Randal hears this and asks what’s going on. Marshawn says that she just thinks it would be nice for the team to feel like they’re a part of the decisions being made. Randal is confused, because he thought the team was making decisions together.
We see Marshawn back out of the presentation again. Rebecca takes over. Oh, Marshawn.1 2 3 Next-->
