Memories, a blight on the corners of my mind
Anyway, Apex came out on top, and in the Boardroom, Trump was like, "Stacy, you are so irritating, are you still here? Go away." And she was gone. She reflects, but not very much, that she has a big personality, and she "learned" that when there are lots of intense personalities, you should listen more. "Stacy was fired," Trump says insightfully, "because she got on everybody's nerves. Including mine. I just couldn't take her anymore." You and me both, Trump-o. For all your flaws, at least you sent that stinker packing.
Next, it was time to go back to "Nipples" Deutsch and design a recruitment campaign for the NYPD. And Deutsch wanted to make sure the teams would hit 'em right between the nipples, where it counts. Raj didn't understand why his team didn't understand his point that all police officers are boys, duh. We watch even more footage than before of Elizabeth's team complaining that she's not making a decision, but it also looks even more than before like the team made it practically impossible for her to actually implement anything, due to the constant bitching. Ivana and Kevin take a walk and gripe about Elizabeth and her indecisiveness, which is probably meant to bolster the perception of an Ivana-Kevin friendship in preparation for the upcoming task, in which Kelly will be exempt, so if Apex were to lose, it would be between Kevin and Ivana to be fired. At any rate, in the recruitment task, the Apex Campaign of Fear in which the slogan was apparently "Run For Your Life...Straight To Our Offices!" fell flat. When Mosaic brought in a campaign that Andy pulled off without any notable support from his team, they won the task. Elizabeth was blamed in the Boardroom, and it was really too late to defend herself, so she was fired, without even a final table. Showing that she is probably the only person to have actually learned the appropriate lesson from her experience (shocking!), she reflects that she probably spent too much time worrying about what other people thought, and it caused her to freeze and cease functioning. Yes! That's it! Eureka! Good for her. Who knew anybody was going to learn anything from this train wreck of a season? Trump says insightfully that Elizabeth had no one's respect, and she just plain "had to go."
