A crowd is gathering as Greg and Blaine accuse each member of the Green team of calling them the most disrespectful people. "That's not true," says Morgan calmly, which just sends Greg off into a yelling tizzy. "Greg! Respect!" Michael tries to remind him, but that's a one-way street for Greg. He says that Michael disagreed with the respect game from the start, and Michael cops to it, and also confesses his regrets that he didn't say anything against the idea before. Greg keeps pushing, until Michael screams at him, "Let me talk!" Michael says that he was intimidated before, but he's not anymore. "You poor kid," Greg condescends. Michael vows that he's going to be an independent thinker from now on; he'll work with them, but he won't go against his own principles and values.
DK yells at the Green team for thinking they're better than anyone, and says that they need to come together as a town. Blaine accuses them of saying that he and Greg didn't deserve the Gold Star (which we didn't hear), and the Green team looks surprised that anyone thinks they said that. So now Blaine says they're thinking about giving the Gold Star to nobody. "What is this, like, a Nazi regime?" Sophia asks. Looks like the Council has some backers now, too, including Olivia, Mallory, and Jasmine, the first of whom looks shocked at Sophia Godwinning the debate. Sophia tries to continue, "Why do you fear so much--" but Greg would rather shout everyone down than have that discussion, so the Green district basically leaves, realizing they're not going to get anywhere with these people right now. As Kennedy drags Michael off, he calls back that he's sorry his fellow Council members can't see anyone's point. "Shut up, Michael, I'm tired of your crap!" DK screams at him. Of all the shitty things Greg and Blaine have done, tricking DK into making himself look like this much of an asshole is easily the worst. The Green team retreats and regroups, and Sophia tells them that if they have each other's backs, that's all that matters. Laurel points out that they're a town, not a district. "United we stand, divided we fall," Campbell mumbles into Morgan's sleeve. Wow, that was all actually kind of upsetting.
