Credits. Props to whatever tortured soul has the thankless job of trying to make Trump look sexy. You do brave, if futile, work.
Tonight, as we look down at New York, we are encouraged to admire a searchlight, its rays clawing the sky in desperation, asking people to please begin transferring the hate to the Red Sox until the Yankees win another World Series. Then, for some reason, we are tourists all of a sudden, and we're looking at the subway, and then the big Radio City sign, and then a carriage ride...all of this before returning to S5 for what should be the Aspiring Corporate Weasel Death Watch. Up in the suite, everyone is hanging out in one of the bedrooms, where Wes is saying that he "will be gravely surprised" (whatever "gravely surprised" means) if Elizabeth returns from the Boardroom alive. In fact, if she can pull off the escape, she will be "Houdini." Just another connection between Donald Trump and the occult. Andy, on the other hand, thinks that if Elizabeth keeps her cool and sticks up for herself, and if Raj doesn't back off the military theme, Raj could go instead. I can't believe Andy doesn't think foppishness is an impenetrable protective shield.
The door to the suite opens, and Jen -- more self-congratulatory by the week -- strolls in, along with...oh, look, the entire rest of her team. Obviously, this is not what Mosaic will be expecting, as there should be a partial team returning while the rest head for the final table. The final table that, you will recall, never was. Mosaic pokes its head out of the bedroom where most of it is gathered, and in spite of not being the most observant group on the planet, it does notice that the only person not back is Elizabeth. Chris, and especially Jen, recount the humiliation of Elizabeth with obvious glee that I can only hope they find fairly embarrassing in retrospect. It just isn't necessary to wallow in how awesome you find the shitty way somebody was treated, especially somebody inept but not remotely malicious like Elizabeth. Maria at least has the decency to put all of them in it together, noting that every time they go into the Boardroom this year, it seems like "something insane happens." She does not say, "Like the times I haven't been fired," the way she should.
