Nick later arrives at the Trumpartment for his one-on-one time. He interviews that he knew he needed the win, or he was likely to be fired, given some of the recent events. Trump ushers Nick into the Trumpartment, and Nick comments on how beautiful it is, because he is blinded by all the gold. GOLD! GOLD! GOLD! Everywhere, there is gold. Nick says that he took the opportunity to ask Trump what he's looking for in a young executive. Trump says that "assuming the brain" (never safe), he's looking for "energy." He tells Nick that Nick has obviously got a lot of energy himself. Nick then asks for the tour, and Trump gives it to him. As they walk, he asks Trump if there's a mentor that he particularly learned from. Unsurprisingly, Trump mentions his father. (That would be his father, Fred Trump, married to his mother, Mary Trump. Thanks, Sam! At least your studying had some value to someone.) Trump then shows Nick pictures of Mary and Fred. In the pictures, Mary is old, but Fred is in his prime. Somewhere, a Sigmund Freud type leans back in his wing chair and says, "Ah, I zeee." Nick interviews that Trump stressed the importance of a "support system" and a "close family." He claims that he has "a connection" with Trump. They're engaged, I guess. Trump tells Nick to "just keep it going." He also makes a very interesting comment, which is, "Even when in theory, you weren't doing well, I thought you were doing well." I think that Trump is really at the point where he's not judging people on individual events anymore. He's looking for what he's looking for, and he's getting rid of people who are not it. They shake hands. I do think Trump likes Nick a lot. I think he sees "cocky bastard" and thinks, "Ah, that I can relate to so much more easily than 'oversensitive crybaby.'"
That night, Manhattan has many lights. And also buses. Heidi calls her mom, and apparently Mom tells her that it's going to take some treatment (apparently in addition to the surgery) to treat Mom's cancer. She interviews that Mom is doing well, and on the phone, she double-checks that Mom is with the best doctor. It's basically another reminder of how Heidi just wants to be awesome on behalf of her mother, which...I mean, if it changed her outlook permanently and made her less unpleasant to people, that would be great, although...I doubt it. And when I say I doubt it? I'm saying I doubt it. She interviews that she knows Kwame will take her to the Boardroom, and she's ready for it.
In S4, Assorama has a chat with Bill -- who, along with Amy, seems to be able to get along with her reasonably well, judging by what we've seen. She prattles to Boyfriend Bill about how Troy was worthless on the task, and didn't do anything except carry booze and clean the floor. It's more than Assorama has done on several of the tasks, but it's not like that's going to slow down the train of self-righteousness at this point. She interviews that she doesn't know Troy did anything that "leads to a victory." Unlike making $869 in sales, which totally was critical. Keep in mind as she preens for the rest of the episode that if everyone had done as well as Assorama did, the team wouldn't have lost by $10,000 or so. It's not like she carried her cash haul home in a convoy of six armored cars. In the Pink Scarf interview, she simply states that Kwame will not take her to the Boardroom, because she was the "artistic advisor" and did a bunch of other stuff. Yeah. She was the "artistic advisor" who told him that business-wise, Meghan's stuff was the only stuff that would bring them the money they needed to win. Why wouldn't he take her? It's goofy. She imagines in her own mind, and speaks as if it were fact, the notion that Kwame ignored her advice and went with Troy and Heidi. She's just delusional in a way I'm beginning to find kind of creepy.
