Clay gets into the booth to record the song, and Lisa thinks it's good enough to shove Debbie Gibson's Crystal Light jingle out of her head. Clay resents Dayana micromanaging his singing, some more. I do think at some point Dayana just decided she was never going to win with these two and just decided to be a huge bitch about it. Like, "Lisa, can you make it cuter and not so scary?" is not how you try to manage your team. Clay rightly points out that Dayana's "leadership" is just a lot of authoritative posing without much of an idea of where she wants the task to go. "It's not even the blind leading the blind," he says. "It's the blind leading the seeing." It's tough to blame him for something like this when Dayana is saying she wants the dancers dressed as hippies, because she doesn't get how that runs counter to their aesthetic.
Don Jr. shows up, and Dayana enthuses about Clay and all his great ideas for the jingle. Lisa sticks up for her own contributions to the concept and song. Don pokes a stick, asking Dayana if she feels her ideas have been fully heard. "Not really," she says. "[Clay] knows what he's doing, and [Lisa] is as loud as possible." Lisa's like "Not cool" and starts crying and then she fucking LOSES it, saying Dayana is lying and she's a fucking bitch. For her part, Dayana seems really pleased with herself that she prodded Lisa into looking like a total lunatic in front of Don.
Lisa stomps out, and after Don leaves, she returns, but it's a cold war. Dayana pulls the "not here to make friends" card, so the season can truly begin. She takes on signage and brand messaging for the task and refuses to apologize to Lisa, at least not an unqualified apology. Lisa continues to yell at her about being terrible. Dayana thinks a Celeb Apprentice needs class and dignity and HAHAHA I'M SORRY I CAN'T EVEN. Lisa resolves to put her head down and bury Dayana in the boardroom.
At rehearsal, Forte hones their fake radio show concept, and Dayana continues to micromanage Clay, which he resents. He flips on her and yells at her for condescending to him, so she backs off and gives a crying interview about how nobody respects her.
