Town Hall meeting! Jonathan's starting right off with the Gold Star award. Taylor is the one making the announcement this week, and she babbles for way too long for no reason. "I'm gonna go ahead and say who it is," she finally says. And then she doesn't. "Go ahead," Jonathan prompts. And Taylor awards it to Greg. Mike interviews that he thinks sometimes Greg has an attitude, but has turned out to be a "pretty cool guy." Translation: the Council overruled me again. Greg and Jonathan hug, and Jonathan asks what he's going to do with the money. Greg emotionally tells the town, "This right here means I'm going to college. I have no money put away for college right now. This is -- you guys have no clue what this will do for my life." Why are so many of them crying, then? Greg gets a big cheer, and even Mike smiles and claps. Jonathan asks Greg what his parents will think, and Greg says he'll have to call his dad because his mom will pass out. Jonathan hands him the key to the phone so he can make that call. But not so fast! There's voting to be done first.
Jonathan busts out the ballots -- color-coded cards with a space for the candidate's name -- and has the kids pass them out among themselves, using the time to remind us who the candidates are in each district. "In Red, will it be Mike or Guylan? In Blue, will it be Anjay or Olivia? In Yellow, will it be Zach or Taylor? And in Green, will it be Laurel...or Laurel?" Laurel lets out an embarrassed cackle, and Jonathan officially kicks off her second term. Everyone applauds for her as though she did something. Which, okay, she did, shut up. Jonathan stands behind the four color-coded ballot boxes and says, "On your mark, get set, pioneers, vote!" Way to make a bunch of kids writing seem exciting. Guylan interviews that he really wants it. Olivia interviews that she's in "bad trouble" if she didn't convince Greg to come over to her side. Yes, if you strike at the king, you'd better kill him. Wait, I probably shouldn't giver her ideas where Anjay is concerned. Zach glumly interviews that he's just about ready to concede, because he's done the electoral math and the Yellow girls represent an unbreakable voting bloc for Taylor.
