Stefani interviews sardonically about how Surya totally bugged them to death, drove the rest of Arrow to distraction, caused the meanest onscreen behavior from Stefani herself, made Frank drink beers, made Nicole roll her eyes, and "drove Tim to insanity" -- so now they're putting the two of them together on a team. Which also includes themselves, so it's not even like a nasty joke they're playing on Tim. Now, it seems obvious that Tim never had the issue with Surya that Frank and James -- and to a certain extent Stefani -- had with him, so take this with a grain of salt. On the other hand: it's fucking Surya. Not a pretty picture. Stefani outlines the possible strategies as follows: either Nicole and Frank recognize their lack of "organizational skills" -- or what I call "the ability to keep it the fuck together for more than five minutes at a go" -- or else they've lost their minds. Those are the options, as she sees them. I think it's charitable enough to say that Option A could possibly be stated in less insulting ways, and that it's entirely possible that Frank and Nicole are smart enough to get a Stefani substitute on this task, to hold down the "chalkboard master" position, as Stefani puts it.
I think you've gotta try on some moccasins to get there, though, because subjectively, it's not that they NEED that to compensate for their own perceived lacks -- they don't know what the problem is with them, collectively or singly -- but that they don't FEEL LIKE doing that stuff, because it's boring. Those are two different ways of saying the same thing, because that's how people work. We have the advantage of being objective and seeing which one's closer to the truth, but nobody ever did anything against their own interests, and this is not an ego sacrifice to say they want somebody to handle the boring parts. You don't like your racist uncle because he drinks, but that also makes him a fun babysitter, for example. Or maybe they've lost their minds and Stefani's doubly right. In any case, Frank issues a lecture to the Four about how "this is it" and whatever, task pumping up and whatnot. Frank awkwardly tosses a champagne arm around Nicole with his insides all fizzy: "You ready, kid?" He is so very much in love with her. I swear it.
Hollywood, Wax Museum, tourist stuff, etc etc. In the KiNOTic war room, Stefani and James are going over their basic idea, wherein a "nerdy odor expert" is unable to find "evidence of odor." James loves it. Aaron and Angela say nothing. I could literally end this recap with those two sentences eighty-seven times in a row and you'd get not just the gist but the entire enchilada. So it's a courtroom scene, where the man of the family is charged with stinking up his home, but then thanks to [the deodorizing product, which we're going to call... what's something I like that deserves this kind of hype? Friday Night Lights], is proven not guilty. So if your target audience is women who enjoy being lied to by their husbands, you're Turning Gold. James will be directing, Stefani will be doing everything else; Aaron and Angela are in charge of staring into space and not speaking.
