Trump bugs the ad guy to say something to justify Trump hiring James/Stefani live on Sunday, and he finally gives up the goods, saying that Frank and Nicole each are lacking in some areas. Which I am not going to try and deny this late in the day, but I don't think fucking James deserves anything, really, and I would like to see Stefani win because she's the best of the four, but she won't win on her own, because: Trump. Frank is dead to me because he's a Bumfights-watching, Korean-hating yokel all of a sudden. And that leaves... Nicole. Who deserves to win not only because she's the only one of the Final Four that knows what she's doing, but also because she's the only one who actually cares about any of this. Stefani, Aaron, Derek, Jenn: nobody really cares about winning, except for Nicole. And yeah, I'm not in love with the reasons for that, but it would mean more to her than anybody left at this point, no matter how lame the actual job you get turned out to be. So I am rooting for Nicole. That's what this season has done to me.
Other good things about Frankie Suits include phrases like "tough cookie" and "can-do attitude," which are pretty much euphemisms for the thing that's been obvious about Frank since before the season even started. The advertising guy kind of glances off an interesting point somewhere in here that, though Frank and Nicole have these lacks, had they worked together as a team they could have compensated for them. Which is like the definition of a team? But I don't think anybody ever on this show understands the actual meaning of that word. Except for like Tim, who was only being that way to impress Nicole anyway, and whose cognitive dissonance about all of it caused him to just sort of uproot the entire concept of this show and toss it out the window at some point. Trump mentions Frank's accent again, and he and the lady exec talk about how they're from New York, so... something. Some kind of prideful thing I don't really get about how, though neither of them has the uneducated Bronx accent and never did, they still feel solidarity for his stupid ass. I don't know. These are probably my favorite execs I've ever seen on this show. I really, really liked that total bitch from the hockey task (Lee), but I don't know that we could be close friends. These two, I want them to get married so we can all have dinner parties and double-date and play doubles tennis with me and Derek. Awww. Too bad this season sucks so bad. They deserved better.
