In the hall, as Bill and Nick approach the suite, Nick comments to Boyfriend Bill that it was a bad move, what Ereka did -- she should have taken him and Katrina rather than involving Bill. Inside the suite, Katrina is still whining that Ereka wasn't given enough credit by the guys for doing such a great job losing the paperwork and convincing people that in trying to sell them water, she was only looking out for herself in an effort to create "buzz." The door swings open, and here come Bill and Nick. The person who greets Bill and Nick first is a squealing Assorama, who gives a high screech and then gets very sarcastic, going, "Where did she go? She's gone!" From its perch on the couch with a beer and a bag of pretzels, Karma shrugs, like, "Well, fuck with me if you want to, you'll see how it works out." Katrina looks at Amy with utter horror and dismay that Ereka was booted. HA! Ahem, sorry. What I meant to say was that I totally feel for her. Behind her, Kwame smiles at Troy, but he'd rather no one noticed, because he's not saying anything, he's juuuuuust sittin' there.
Katrina, this entire time, has a truly brilliant look on her face. It's the one you haven't seen since the prom, when that one girl found out that her boyfriend had given a tissue to this girl she hates who was crying, and she set her mouth about a half-inch open and jutted out her lower jaw. It is a look that says one thing, and one thing alone: "Oh. My. God." Complete with very pronounced pauses and, at the end, a very indignant application of lip gloss. Troy, on the other hand, happily greets the fellas. "Gentlemen!" he says. I think he really misses Ereka. Assorama gets in on the action, too, even managing to give Boyfriend Bill a hug. Now how is that justice? Katrina just sits in her little plastic chair, hating all the meanies and unable to cope. Katrina interviews that Assorama is probably happy that Ereka's gone, and it's just so unfair, because "[Assorama] should be the one gone, not Ereka." Even though, of course, Assorama's team didn't lose. But still! Anyway, there is more hugging in the suite. Katrina watches it all very coldly, with arms crossed. Heidi asks Boyfriend Bill how the whole thing was, and he calls it "not pleasant." He points out that Ereka wouldn't shake hands when it was all over. Kwame says, in exactly the right tone, "Ohh, that's not good." "That's bad," Troy puts in. And it is, of course, very bad. Katrina interviews -- and this interview is so sad that I can barely hear it over the sound of myself cackling -- that Ereka was someone she really liked. "I believed in what she stood for." Totally. You know what they say..."First, they came for the belly buttons"...it's all about integrity, y'all. Without Ereka, Katrina says that it's all about the game and the job. Aw. I think she's lost her sense of purpose. I think it will take a very tiny skirt to help her find it again.
