This condemnation of technology is ingratitude, that's what it is. Blind alley, though. If someone's ungrateful and you tell him he's ungrateful, okay, you've called him a name. You haven't solved anything.
Backstage, Cyrus realizes that "troubled" was the wrong word, and Amanda's like, "I've been saying that all day!" Daniel brings up for the first time how hard Zoë hated the Filthy Science, which fascinates Sarno so much that Daniel nearly trusts him, smiling, but Sarno stays on message: "She didn't like the holoband? Hated it? Maybe because it was making her want to blow things up?" Daniel's sad that Sarno turned on him so fast, but backstage Amanda looks at Cyrus and just goes, "...No."
I don't know about you, but I started rubbing my palms together at that moment, because a day without Amanda Graystone going apeshit on some poor mother is like a day without sunshine.
(My friend The Stove explains: "You always love the hot blonde one best, on every show." Guilty. But then the next week she revised: "It's the cold blonde one, actually." It's completely true. It's because the dark-haired one is almost always going to be the Bad Girl and get redeemed, but it's the blonde one that has the option of going cold: Being so good and sticking to your convictions so hard that on the rare occasion that you absolutely must control a situation, you can do it merely by withholding or supplying affection or approval, and further that you can do this with complete transparency because it's not a secret. Not proud of all that, but then survival skills never come cheap. By definition.)
Leaving Team Graystone in a twitching mass of poll numbers and nosediving stocks, Amanda walks right the hell out there on stage. Everybody stares and loses their minds because of how amazing she is. Joe's confused because she's supposed to be dead, Jordan Duram is once again truly impressed with her total balls, Priyah's about to kill herself, Cyrus is about to call his broker faster than Martha Stewart on speed dial, Sarno's doing poodle flips of course, Daniel's smiling at her with the thinnest angriest lips. "Let's get her a chair, please... Um, people watching at home, uh, let's hit Record and we'll be right back after these messages. This is going to be very exciting, so stick around."
