So despite the fact that last time we saw him, the Governor was writing Nathan's name in colored marker with flowery hearts and putting it in his hope chest, he apparently has "cold feet" about him now, so Tracy has to point out that the Junior Senator seat of New York has been vacant for a month, and it's his job to fill it. (Don't know if that's actually the procedure in New York, and more importantly, don't care.) A chyron tells us the duo's surnames (Tracy's is "Strauss" and the Governor's is "Malden") as Tracy argues for Nathan as both a dynamic and a strategic choice. After a frankly excessively long pedeconference in which the Governor keeps balking and Tracy keeps pushing him (one point of interest is her declaration that "the far right is loving him, which fits in nicely with your priorities"), she tells him that he doesn't pay her for sex. "I give that for free." I don't see a ring on that finger, missy! Then again, your far-right constituents would probably accept "Life happens" as an explanation. Her point, anyway, is that he pays her for her counsel, and she's advising him to appoint Nathan. As the conference-room door in front of which they're now standing opens and some guy tells the Governor they're ready for him, Malden tells Tracy to reach out to him. She kittenishly says her flight leaves in an hour, and if it weren't for the tight schedule and the people watching, I think there would be some more no-cost sex on tap here.
