Over at UNN, the reporter is explaining that there is overwhelming public support for King Silas's peace plan, which we all know is bullshit. Uncle William and Jack observe the proceedings and discuss how the country needs an information source that isn't run by the king. Jack orders the head of the network to bring in some criticism of the plan on air. The network head, clearly not used to fomenting dissent, seems unsure. Jack adds that later in the day, when the king orders the media out of Port Prosperity so that images of the revolt won't be transmitted to the rest of the country, UNN's cameras should stick around. So suddenly Jack the closeted gay party boy is an expert in media manipulation and Machiavellian politics? That seems a bit off.
Michelle hops in a car and orders her driver to take her to Port Prosperity. Do you think she even knows how to drive? Or where Port Prosperity is? I would enjoy this show a lot more if it were even more ridiculous, like if Michelle hopped in the car and said, "Driver, take me to the moon! What? Why can't you drive there?" We need more out-of-touch royalty.
Queen Rose is getting her photo taken with some sort of championship soccer team. Silas jokes with her that he hates that team, but Sniveling Aide interrupts to impress upon the king how serious the protests at Port Prosperity are becoming. The king puts him off, and adds that he sent David Shepherd, so it's sorted. Sniveling Aide tries again to explain how bad things are getting, but Silas snarls at him that the people are just throwing a tantrum, so the aide gives up (especially after Thomasina gives him a look like, "Dude, seriously?"). Rose quietly tells Silas to mellow out, because he's going to alienate his staff. She advises him to go to "the countryside" because it always seems to refresh him. Does she know that his mistress lives there? I have to believe that the queen we've seen so far isn't fooled that easily. Silas agrees that he needs a road trip. Cue the wacky hijinks! I bet Thomasina likes to stop at all the 7-11s and buy Slurpees and Twizzlers.
