Hydra continues celebrating, as Vinnie asks Stephen, "Who's watching our backs?" They point skyward simultaneously, triggering a witty little harp cue.
Back in the board room, Trump asks Carol why she thinks they lost, and Carol points out that it was really close. As for Marilu, she says the problem with their team is that some of them are taking a back seat, as opposed to the dynamic on the guys' team. Trump asks Omarosa if she thinks they're overmatched. Omarosa won't say that, but Jennie says that the guys are unbelievable, which just makes them even more insufferable, watching this in the suite. As for the question of how Carol ended up in the tent, Omarosa blames Carol for "flying below the radar." Ivanka asks Jennie whether she agrees with that, and Jennie flounders. Omarosa thinks Trump should fire Carol. Carol turns right on Omarosa for bringing everyone down, and they're talking over each other. Nely says that they have great assistants and workers, but not great leaders. Jennie says that she and Carol have consistently filled the assistant role, since there's no room for them in the leadership tier. Nely thinks Marilu should be fired, and shouldn't even have been the PM to begin with, regardless of her Broadway experience. Anyway, it's time for Marilu to pick the two people she's bringing back. And she names Jennie and Carol. The guys in Hydra realize that Marilu's keeping Nely because she needs her to win. And in the lobby, the three women who will return to the board room all complain about Omarosa. So why is Omarosa not going back to the board room, then?
Trump and his viceroys discuss the upcoming firing. McMahon thinks Jennie lacks the competitive killer instinct here, and Ivanka thinks Empresario would be screwed without Marilu. When they come back in, Marilu starts right in making excuses about people with different energy levels, working styles, and amounts of respect for each other. (Omarosa.). Trump asks Marilu why she brought Carol and Jennie, and she basically says that she can afford to lose these two, as opposed to Omarosa and Nely, with whom she works very well. Jennie admits that she feels overwhelmed just being in a room with Omarosa and Nely. Trump is quite understanding when she says she isn't used to it: "Don't get used to it. Stay the way you are. I think you're fantastic. But Jennie, for my purpose, you're fired." He tells Jennie to return to her own world, which is better after all, and win some more Olympics. After the women leave, everyone agrees that Trump made the right call. Try not to faint from shock.
