While they agree on getting even more hardcore and intense with each other, and it seems cool, Randal interviews once more that even though she apologized, there's still the issue that this misperception of his back-seating it is out in the ether. Which is a good outcome, for the situation: there may be lingering trouble, but I find there's a subtext here that he's shouldering the burden of disproof. Which, admittedly, can only happen once he's back in the Boardroom, but at least it's a lot better than some people might have reacted, Clay and Markus. They got to the point the second they got back to the suite, Rebecca opened the lines of communication about the comments, they cleared it out and she apologized, and both acknowledged that it's about moving forward. Even with just two of them that's still precisely the opposite of what Cap Edge did numerous times in this circumstance, not to mention the fact that Randal's concerns had legitimacy, and weren't merely based in "hurt feelings" crap. Not that the situation could have been reversed -- Randal's way too cool a cucumber to say something that unconsidered -- but still. Hopefully they're actually good about it, and can get moving. Randal gives a hoo-rah ("Let's do this tomorrow") and Rebecca gives it right back. Good deal.
How Do You Cope With Adversity? Your teammate has just, inadvertently or not, put you on blast as a lazy bitch in front of your boss. Do you:
A. Complain to your teammates.
B. Complain to your boss.
C. Complain to the camera.
D. Overcome any forthcoming obstacles in such a way that nobody can deny your power, and talk loudly about how powerful and amazing you are at every opportunity. Using as many overblown and ridiculous metaphors as you can, if possible.
E. Keep it out of the Boardroom and concentrate on staying there, so that your record speaks for you regardless. Acknowledge it and clear the air with your teammate, but stay focused on the task. In front of the Viceroys, show your competence and enthusiasm as much as possible without seeming insane.
