The interviewers pass by the interviewees in the waiting room before the interviewees are sent into the conference room. Martha repeats a few of the things said by the interviewers about the interviewees. Martha tells Hateful Jim, "You stressed that you had a strategy for 'playing the game.'" "Life is a game," Hateful Jim instantly responds. SHUT UP ALREADY! Hateful Jim incoherently tries to defend what he said, but I have given him too much of my time already, so we'll just cut to the part when Martha dubs, "While I like someone having a creative spark, you're a loose cannon and you've managed to alienate a lot of your teammates." Martha then says, "And I think that your experience, your level of management skills, and understanding of the Martha Stewart content and brand just isn't thorough enough. Jim, many of the things you do might be perceived as a liability or disruptive." Switch to dubbing: "And here at MSLO, I cannot tolerate that sort of behavior. You've played it your way, and now I'll play it my way: the game's over, Jim, you're outta here." Hateful Jim blinks and looks down at his lap. I am so angered by the dubbing here -- we finally get to watch Hateful Jim get his hateful comeuppance and all the hateful pleasure is sucked away by the apparent falsification of Martha's smackdown! I mean, did they do that for better sound quality, or did she not really say that? Then again, if she really did say something rather innocuous to Hateful Jim, imagine his embarrassment when he sees this is what everyone thinks she said to him. Wait, "embarrassment"? Who am I kidding? He has no shame. Alexis nods to herself. Hateful Jim tells Martha et al. that the experience has been wonderful, and leaves.
In the waiting room, Julia appears to react with surprise at seeing Hateful Jim. "It's all good," Hateful Jim whispers to her. "Thank you so much, Julia. Bye-byeeee!" Please let the door hit you on the way out! Martha writes, "Dear Hateful, Hateful Jim, you only lasted as long as you did on this show because Burnett thought you made 'good' TV. In the end, however, no one really watched, so I don't know how 'good' it actually was. However, I've always known one thing: you would NEVER be A 'Good' Thing at my company. In fact, the only 'good' thing about you is riddance. Martha Stewart. P.S. Keckler really hates you."
