That night. Planet Hollywood. When the Times Square team returns, Jessie has brought some tables downstairs to create a quick-service area for appetizers. In a cavernous restaurant that appears to be mostly empty. Sharp thinking. [Eye roll.] She says that she could tell that Team Leader Katrina wasn't really thrilled about Jessie's actually taking initiative while everyone else was gone. Katrina determines that the tables downstairs aren't "being effective," which kind of makes it seem like she's feeling a little peevish toward the tables themselves. "Be effective!" I half-expect her to holler at them. Dissatisfied, Katrina orders Jessie to shut the ineffective slacker appetizer tables down. Jessie tells Katrina that as the boss, she can make the call, but that it seems to her that Katrina is irked that Jessie is thinking for herself. Katrina talks some more without saying anything, and then Jessie accuses her of "spazzing out," and Katrina gives her the old passive-aggressive "I'm not upset, except that I'm upset because you're upset" thing, and I suspect that somebody stole somebody else's Bonne Bell Lip Smackers right around this point, because that's the only way you can even get a fight like this. Then Katrina gives a bullshit interview where she claims that the fact that Jessie didn't respond well to her leadership "saddens" her, because she is so supportive of Jessie. Have you forgotten that Katrina is a good person? I hope not, because she certainly hasn't. Jessie gives an interview in which she says, in a very nasal and girly voice that I hadn't previously noticed, that she isn't sure they're going to win this task. The other ones, she felt confident about, but now, not so much.
