Don and MacKenzie split EP duties in the control room. MacKenzie reads off the new governor of Wisconsin's victory speech to Will, wondering how he can say he's an ally to businesses and workers when he also wants to bust the unions. I guess he thinks that the workers and the businesses are better off without unions. It's not like he wants to be the governor to make everyone miserable. Oh my god, this show is so bad that it's making me sympathetic to Scott Walker.
Don asks MacKenzie to ask Will to throw it to Elliot more often. MacKenzie asks Don to ask Elliot say something besides how awesome it is to see democracy in action. "I'm trying!" Don snaps.
On stage, we have Sloan (oh yeah, remember her? How did she not get to appear in any of the time passage montages?), Will, Elliot, and some guy who I think is Elliot's analyst sitting behind their laptops. Way to connect with the American people behind your shiny MacBook Pros, there, guys. Will asks Elliot for his opinion on the night. Elliot says democracy is in action and it is beautiful. Will is disgusted and turns to Sloan for analysis. Sloan says the voting public is old and conservative. Will asks Elliot's analyst why people who are on social security are voting for candidates who could destroy social security. Elliot's analyst has no explanation for this. The segment ends, and Elliot's analyst is not very pleased with Will. Don is not pleased with Elliot. He pulls him aside and asks him to "get in the game" and stop saying stupid things when Will is good enough to give him a chance to speak. Shockingly, Elliot does not appreciate Don's advice. "Don't talk to me like that," he says; "don't talk to me like I am a disappointing child." He tells Don he can either get back together with Maggie and stop being such a dick, get over Maggie and stop being such a dick, or get fired. Don takes a second and says Elliot is right. All is forgiven. Well, thank god they resolved the Elliot/Don tension plotline! I was dying to know what was going to happen between those two! Meanwhile, who is Neal?
Maggie hands Will some election updates and some helpful, if inappropriate and unsolicited, advice. She knows this is "grounds for termination," although considering they didn't can her when she did all that other stuff, I can't see them firing her now, but she thinks Will's dates should meet him at the restaurant and not in his office. Will decides to be frank with Maggie: "Your head's up your ass." But he doesn't fire her. Instead, he says he can't stop thinking about MacKenzie sleeping with her ex-boyfriend. Still. Three years later. Might want to get some therapy about that, Will. He says he wasn't trying to hurt MacKenzie or rub her face in anything; he just wasn't considering her feelings. Well, that was awkward.
