Lenny tells the V&T that he never lost control of the team, "not for a minute," and I wonder how many minutes there are in the 72 hours he was apparently gallivanting around town with Lee while the other 2.5 members of the team got the shit done, but I know that was at least in part for dramatic effect. Charmaine says that if it weren't for her, Lenny wouldn't have made the executive meeting at all, and instead -- again -- of answering this with anything like a response, he goes all ad charmainum: "Ooooohhhhhh, if it weren't for you it would have been a nice task." She's like, "Um, without the 2.5 actually onsite, you wouldn't have had a fucking floor," and he...I'm getting so tired of this shit. "It would have been a better task without you! And I wish you weren't there!" Just fucking fire him already. There's no point to any of this. Person A says some valid criticism, and he responds about something completely unrelated but including the implication or outright statement that they can go fuck themselves, and game play passes to the left. And it's been like this every fucking episode, and it's so, so exhausting. I like Lenny, I do, but he's just got the one fucking trick, and if he doesn't go home tonight -- specifically right now -- I am going to freak out, because I am so, so tired of his one fucking trick. "I can't believe this!" Charmaine vapors over her mint julep -- not to make fun, I thought it was fairly mind-blowing myself -- and he outright lies about how she "didn't do anything but paint two doors," and then tattles to the V&T about how she "complained about the red paint." Like, just because it made you feel bad and make a frowny face doesn't mean it was a misstep or that it ruined the task, and it's kind of freaky for you to say that in that definitive tone, like the V&T are going to be all, "She WHAT?" Charmaine flips the script on him: "That's true, I didn't like his color choices at all." Which is brilliant, because either they're going to ask why that matters, or they're going to let it pass as value-neutral, but either way it's not feeding the whole "Charmaine is a worthless cunt" concept he's selling, and almost seems to detract from it simply by her agreement.
