VersaCorp has a meeting upstairs in the bedroom. Katrina blathers meaninglessly that she feels "like a guest." I don't know where to begin. Uh, in the room? In the suite? On the show? On the planet? Oddly, the last one is the only one where she seems not to fit in...is that a paradox? Boyfriend Bill says that he was "fighting for [his] life," and Ereka tries to get out of the situation, saying, "There was never any intent to put you on the hot seat." Not buying her crap, he says, "But it -- it happened." She has nothing to say to this, because other than crap, she has nothing else for sale. Well, nothing but her dignity, I suppose. Bill interviews that in the Boardroom, Ereka and Katrina ganged up on him -- and from the rest of this episode, I have to think there was more of that than we saw, because we didn't see all that much of Ereka doing anything to him, but it seems like she did. He goes on to say that the ganging up "was unnecessary, and [he] didn't do anything to deserve it." There are some pleasantries back in the bedroom meeting, but things are very tense, because we're getting down to the point where you need to establish yourself a little more and not try to be all "team player" about it, lest you find that you are the last rat off of the sinking ship of fools. "They did it to me once," Bill says in his interview, "and I'm not going to let it happen to me twice -- I mean, screw me once, shame on you, screw me twice, shame on me." You know, Boyfriend Bill, if the people really love each other, there doesn't have to be any shame. Just saying.
There is a Protégé meeting, minus Assorama, in which Amy says that they will need to be going hard tomorrow in order to win. Troy mentions that this is something Heidi will want to keep in mind -- apparently, they've decided that finally, now that every other person has done it, it's time for Heidi to be PM. Amy also says they should dedicate the task to Heidi's mother, which...I mean, it's a lovely thought, but how do you dedicate a sales pitch to someone's mother? "Buy something; my mother is sick." It sounds sweet in theory, but kind of weird in actual practice. Heidi appreciates it, though, or says she does. She reminds us, in case we've forgotten, that her mom is in the hospital. I, for one, did not forget. Assorama, on the other hand, just generally sucks, and is busy settling into bed while everyone else is meeting. Heidi points out that if Assorama's head really hurts, then she feels bad for her, but the head has a way of hurting whenever there's work to be done. As we watch Assorama get into bed, the meeting downstairs is adjourned. Not that these events are related, because Assorama is certainly not necessary.
