Primarius arrives at their reward, greeted by children and a New York Cares worker, and start getting their hands dirty. As halos ding into place over their heads, various Primarius team members confess about how wonderful it was to dig dirt, throw rocks, and work with a bunch of screaming kids. Unbelievably, Dawna even manages to have tears running down her face in her confessional about making the garden. Tears! On her face! Because of the "reward"! Women in business don't cry, my dear.
Loft. Some of the Matchstick members sit around and dish on Dawn as Hateful Jim blathers, "She's a virus. She is our virus."
Hateful Jim Metaphor Break: Pied Pipers, oaks, scythes, kings, Everest, selling down the river, and viruses.
For some reason, Hateful Jim calling Dawn a virus makes Weather Girl Shawn guffaw mightily, showing way too many of her teeth. Bethenny gets aboard the Hate Dawn train, and adds they will gain structure as a team only when Dawn is not around to pull focus away from the task at hand. I'm sorry, but they will gain structure as a team only when Hateful Jim is strapped to a bed, gagged, covered with honey, and left on an undisclosed anthill. "She's a roadblock on the way to our success. And Chuck isn't," Hateful Jim adds. Wait, I can't keep up with this. She's a virus AND a roadblock? Maybe he should have said she's a firewall. That would have made more sense. As much as Hateful Jim's crack-addled blitherings can be said to make sense.

Dawn stands in a doorway, smiling, and listens to all this. Hateful Jim goes on to elaborate on the many wonders that are Chuck: "Chuck's a better person, who can move the roadblock aside -- Chuck is an eloquent, beautiful man." Who is also taken, so stop pretending to be gay to gain brownie points, asswipe. Dawn confesses that she just sat there listening to them rip her apart, and that Hateful Jim needs to look in the mirror and see what a huge roadblock he is himself. I think the only mirror Hateful Jim will look into is one decorated with nice, straight, powdery lines. Matchstick, sans Dawn, says they need to bring Chuck up to speed on their plans. "If he comes to you, tell him that you're on board, and that he needs to bring Dawn in, essentially, and that we're backing him, and we're not backing Dawn. The cancer can still be cured, but the strong people that I need to beat have to go," Hateful Jim rasps. You wanna talk about cancer? Why don't you get that thing on your face removed. And by "thing," I mean your mouth.
