Team Sonyae-Nick-Melissa sing the song about not having feelings; it's very much a Mary J Blige song, down to Sonyae's costume, but they bring in Nick rap-rocking in the way he does to sing about her feelings also, and even Melissa does her best keyboarding rock-out, and Sonyae's managed to get about three different excellent riffs out of Nick.
Jackie, still lowering herself to his level even if she's not wrong: "Surprise, Nick played Green Day chords and sang like he was strangling loudly."
Team Jackie-Amber-Brian look amazing, given the tux jacket and Jackie's fanny pack and Amber's pretty much stunning looks getting the Billie Holliday glam treatment. The song is an unholy mess, but maybe not in a bad way. You never know with this show. And the important thing is that Nick manages to bitch as usual while still harping on his desire to fuck Amber, so at least his little shitty corner of the world makes sense.
Hey, let's all talk shit about each other in front of each other. Oh, except for Jackie who's not here for some reason.
Nick: One terrible thing after another.
Jes: Some powerful motherfucking stink-eye in his direction. Worth DVRing, in fact, just to see the faces she makes at this juncture. She looks like she's trying to suck her soft spot inside out.
Sonyae: "Say what you will, but these protestations about Jackie's 'dark side' couldn't be a clearer expression of this shadow-projection complex you've got going on. You've offloaded a lot of unwanted psychological contents onto her, possibly out of fear that you're mirroring her grabs for attention, possibly because you associate her with an attention-hogging or smothering maternal figure -- or simply your own twisted and denying relationship to the anima, from which you clearly derive a lot of your creative power, vide the impossible spiritual life you assign Karen and impossibly negative intentions you assign Jackie, both as a matter of course and sometimes in the same breath, much less the dehumanizing way you've approached Amber from the beginning -- but more likely it's just because you're jealous that she's working the same psychic corner as you and getting paid a lot better for it. She's taken the role you always desire in the group and yet are always denied, due to your uncontrolled self-sabotage and compensatory self-punishment, which causes you to undervalue her talent and get even more confused and irate at the fact that other people appreciate talent which you, subjectively, literally cannot see exists. The fact that she is returning this fire, basically what amounts to spiritual warfare in the Jungian sense, and unconsciously playing into your projection by downplaying your own talent doesn't make her blameless, but it does ensure the bullshit will continue, and you're both suffering for it. So by bringing this up to the group in her absence, you're asking us to cosign it, to ally the objective universe with your perceptions through a democratic vote of your peers, the better to assure yourself that you're correct in your highly tainted perspective of her. But the fact is that none of the rest of us are engaged in this little projection-scenario shadow-dance the two of you are enjoying, which means you both look crazy from out here."
