Will goes on the air and tells everyone that teachers are good and Wisconsin governors are bad. In the control room, Jim informs MacKenzie that Wade just showed up and he's refusing to leave until MacKenzie sees him. Um, aren't they in a private building? MacKenzie can just have security remove him. Or not let him in in the first place. Actually, do they even have security in that building? People seem to just come and go as they please. MacKenzie tells Jim to send Wade to the terrace. Jim points out that it's ten degrees outside. MacKenzie is well aware. "You deserved a lot better," Jim tells her. Did she? Nothing I've seen from MacKenzie so far suggests that she deserves anything better.
MacKenzie finally meets with Wade. He has no idea why she's mad at him. MacKenzie is all business, asking Wade when he first met with the DCCC. Wade asks when MacKenzie was planning on telling him that she used to be with Will. "This was never gonna work, you and me. You wasted my time," he says; "so I got something out of it." I guess MacKenzie shouldn't have been so obvious in her disgust with being near Wade when Will was around. MacKenzie requests that Wade "in this order," leave, lose the election, and then go to hell. He would sort of have to do those things in that order. He couldn't really go to hell, lose the election, and then leave the AWM building.
Will meets Nina in the only nightclub in town. They're in a back room so no one will see them together. Will apologizes to Nina for being rude to her at the party. Nina says that if Will thinks this is all because he rejected her, then he's an even bigger narcissist than she thought. Anyway, Nina is pretty damn sure that MacKenzie and Will were trying to help Wade out, so I guess she's not printing blatant lies about Will and his staff since she thinks they're true and she does present the facts. She knew what was going on with Wade before super-journalists Will and MacKenzie did. "I'm running a piece saying that you hired an incompetent EP because she was your girlfriend," Nina says. Once again, Nina gets the facts right! Just maybe not the conclusions she draws from them. She's still a better reporter than Will.
