Hateful Jim Metaphor Break: Pied Pipers, oaks, scythes, kings, Everest, selling down the river, viruses, roadblocks, and cancer.
Okay, why the HELL is none of them reacting to the fact that he just said, "The strong people I need to beat have to go"? Screw this team, I hope they all lose. Except Dawn. I still like Dawn, and either it's because of her dun-dun-DUN! that she did in the beginning or because I know that she's being unfairly targeted by Bethenny the Banana Bitch and Hateful Jim. Nothing we've been shown actually backs up what Bethenny and Hateful Jim are complaining about. Hateful Jim gabbles in his Hateful Jim Confessional, "What I'm going to attempt to do in the conference room is protect Chuck and just sell. Dawn. Down. The. River!" Okay, now he's just reusing metaphors -- how insanely boring of him.
Chuck walks into the loft, smiling. Hateful Jim is standing there, waiting to greet him with his arms feyly crossed. He tells Chuck how much he loves his jacket, asking, "Is that vintage?" Good god, I'm going to need another drink for this scene. A really big one. With lots of alcohol, mixed with alcohol. To Hateful Jim's question, Chuck responds -- with confused disdain -- that's it's not vintage, it's something else that I couldn't decipher and that captions didn't pick up. Before Chuck even finishes his response to Hateful Jim's question, Hateful Jim shows how little he cares about the response by interrupting Chuck, grabbing at his shoulder, and asking, "Do you want some water? Because I put this here for you." Oh, GOD! We can see that Hateful Jim has set up a little tête-à-ass-kissing at the table. There are two bottles of water, two glasses, and two napkins. The water's probably poisoned with cocaine powder because Hateful Jim's a Rodent of Unusual Size. Hateful Jim says he just wants to talk to him for a second. "Do you wanna sit?" Hateful Jim asks, waving his hand limply. "No," Chuck responds, staring at him. Hateful Jim tells him that they've got it all worked out that Dawn is the one that has to go.
