Will emerges from his office, having just read MacKenzie's email judging by the expression on his face. He's kind of furious, and expresses this by stamping his foot on the floor and screaming. MacKenzie thinks this might best be discussed in private. Yeah, now she's all about the privacy. She leaves the crew with a cheerful request to delete the email. "I think I just accidentally forwarded it to corporate," says the guy who I think is named Martin. He's the same guy MacKenzie basically called an idiot in the staff meeting. Now he's making the same mistakes she is, except he only made it once and I have a feeling he did it on purpose.
Will has to be held back to prevent him from ripping Martin's head off. MacKenzie does more fake panic-stammering and hopping around while she assures Will that she's just trying to "change minds all over the place." Now that the staff knows for sure that this show is being run by crazy people, Will and MacKenzie finally make it into his office, where MacKenzie generously assumes "100% of the responsibility" for the email screw-up. While Will is having a rage stroke, MacKenzie decides to inform him that tonight's show is pretty much ruined. At this point, Will has apparently run out of anger, so he just heads for his desk. MacKenzie changes her mind and tells him she's only "98%" responsible for not being able to send an email. How? Well, as she tells it, Will was always in love with MacKenzie, but she didn't realize that she was in love with him until, two years into their relationship, she slept with her ex-boyfriend. Only then did she realize how much Will meant to her. "So technically, I wasn't cheating on the man I loved. I was falling in love with the man I love." And then she gets all angry and says that this would -- were this a romantic comedy -- "make everything okay." That's weird. I don't think I've ever seen a romantic comedy like that. Maybe Sorkin has and that's why he thinks that this show is quirky fun, but with a serious important message? At least, I think that's what he's going for. Will asks MacKenzie why she told him that she cheated. "Because I wouldn't have been able to live with it," she says. Will says he would have rather not known at all. Well, it apparently wasn't about what you wanted, Will. It was about what MacKenzie wanted. Because she's selfish and crazy. And also, somehow, capable of navigating dangerous war zones.
