At Primarius, Dawna is preparing to go meet with the Lime people; she interviews about how if her team loses, it's a mortal lock that Jim and Bethenny will gang up on her in the conference room, so she'd just as soon win the task. Jim dons his crazy pants to interview that Dawna didn't want Jim to go along with her to the Lime meeting, and thus he had a "rogue team member" on his hands. He air quotes around "rogue," though he might as well have thrown bullshit quotes around it, because he's wrong by a factor of nine hundred. "Rogue" implies that Dawna was operating outside of Jim's direction, which is not what is happening here. If Jim wanted to go on the meeting, he's the PM, he could have gone on the meeting. Since we don't even see an argument about that, who wants to bet that Jim is setting up this "rogue" scenario in his brain to cover his ass in the conference room later? No one? Aww, come on, I'll lay odds! After Dawna leaves, Jim tells Bethenny "I don't know what she's doing with this, but it's not good." You're the PM, you coke-addled freak! You've had every chance to curtail this PR firm idea if you thought it was bad. It's just such sad and transparent ass-covering, and the fact that it takes place in a) an interview, and b) a meaningless conversation with Bethenny, makes me think it's, as everything he does, all for the cameras.
The Good Thing of the week: "Why Is Passion Important?" You'd think this would have come up last week, when one of the reasons Martha let Howie go was a lack of passion. But bear with Martha here. She's talking about loving what you do, and showing up to work every day with an enthusiasm to do that work. She doesn't work in her garden, you guys. She gardens! And I don't have to enter data into a computer system in coordination with the other departments I work with. I get to! The lesson, as always, is that Martha has a way better job than you do.
