MacKenzie says she doesn't trust Nina. Why not? MacKenzie knows that Nina is telling the truth, so she must also know that Nina has nothing to lose by telling MacKenzie about it. Instead, MacKenzie's going to judge Nina and her work while allowing a guy stoned out of his mind to go on the air. Nina admits that she doesn't like "some of the things" she's written about Will, MacKenzie and several others. MacKenzie smirks and says she doesn't believe her. Nina asks what she wanted to be when she grew up. Apparently, MacKenzie wanted to be the worst best EP in the business, so she's happy. Nina says she, too, wanted to be the worst best EP in the business. Instead, she's a horrible gossip reporter. She says no little girl ever wants to grow up to be a gossip columnist. Speak for yourself, Nina. I wrote my own tabloid when I was nine years old and it was AWESOME. MacKenzie says she doesn't feel sorry for her. "Make sure I don't find a second source," Nina says. They part ways. "It's not true!" MacKenzie calls out after her. "Yes it is," Nina says; "I'm sorry." Nina is more competent than 10 MacKenzies.
MacKenzie explains things to Charlie, who has a hard time believing that Will was high since he did that bin Laden story so well. Yes, he was great, wasn't he? In those 15 or so seconds he spoke before throwing it to Obama, he was masterful. "He's a savant," MacKenzie says. She says only she, Will, Neal and Neal's girlfriend knew what happened. Charlie says he's sure none of them went to Nina. Really? He is? He barely knows Kaylee. We don't even know if Kaylee and Neal are still together. MacKenzie asks if this is the thing Reese and Leona could use to fire Will. Uh yeah... you think? I would. He's a liability, as is the EP who knew he was wasted and put him on the air anyway. Frankly, I don't understand why Charlie is so okay with all of this. He wonders why TMI hasn't published the story yet. It's not like a crappy gossip rag to need a second source. MacKenzie changes the subject to Will and how depressed he is. Charlie is sure Will will come back to ACN. For now, he has to go talk to Hancock.
