Next up, we have Team 1 and "Elite Street." Even better would have been "ELLE-ite Street," no? Again, fairly standard as party pages go, save that they have chosen their focal point to be lovely picture of Anne smiling at one of the VIPs. Either way, no layout train wreck here. (Miss you, Devin!) Anne asks about delegation, and Johanna does not explain it as clearly as Kate did. Anne is not impressed that Danielle merely typed and Johanna assisted with, rather than directed, layout design. Anne says it sounds like Kate took a leadership role, and Johanna grimaces. Anne says this spread doesn't make her want to attend the party, and Joe Zee agrees that it doesn't give all-important "access." He thinks the pictures are too two-dimensional and "passport-y." Damn Kate and her "instincts"! The little cleavage monster is right again. As for the most egregious sin, though, they misidentified Romy Soleimani. Again! This woman is a fashion chameleon! Danielle gives a priceless shocked stank face, then foists blame on her teammates. She was a mere typist, you see. Anne tells them to take responsibility and castigates them for lacking a fail-safe division of labor. Anne and the henchmen retire for deliberations. Why even bother? We all saw what happened. Team 2 is toast.
Outside, Megan rubs it in Johanna's face that she chose Kate, and Johanna gets increasingly upset as she notes the bitter irony that Kate went to bed early rather than using her one asset to help her team. Danielle TH's that Johanna basically dug her own grave by being overly considerate of Kate. A sniveling Johanna clomps through the office, embarrassed that Kate was singled out for her leadership when home girl didn't do shit. Johanna descends into meltdown mode as she "hides" in the (completely open) break room by covering her face with a satchel. Commercials.
Back in the lair, Anne praises Kate for asserting leadership and making her opinions known. She dittoes Kate's worry that the wooden wall panels are too ski lodge-y. Joe Zee keeps his post as Rules Boy by announcing that misidentification is unacceptable. Anne also knocks on Danielle for misidentifying one of the VIP's jobs. Joe Zee straps on his knee pads and kisses Anne's ass for a spell, complimenting her photo and saying it's the only one that makes him feel "inside" the party. As for Team 2, they appreciate the photo selection and how it captured the party's vibe. Anne loves the title but insists that it doesn't make up for Dyshaun's caption blunder. They also hate the wordiness of the dek because the page should really be about pictures. With that, deliberations conclude.
