Elizabeth tube-top-terviews that there was a "huge misunderstanding" (by which she means "calling out of me") about the reasons Stacie ended up in the Boardroom. Apparently, she would like you to think she took Stacie for purely task-related reasons having nothing to do with the Boardroom pile-on. This might be credible, except for the conversation she had with Stacy last week in which Elizabeth admitted that she didn't have much of an argument after the task as to why Stacie should be fired. She only took Stacie after Stacy cranked up the firefighter analogies and started acting terrified for her own well-being. Back in S5, Raj puts aside his undoubtedly preoccupying thoughts about which bow tie he will wear tomorrow and tries to show Elizabeth a little sympathy. "You must have had an unpleasant day today, huh?" Sigh. You'd think that if the women were going to be backstabbing, gossipy, sharp-clawed stereotypes, they could at least play both sides of the coin and not be utterly shown up in the sensitivity and sympathy departments by a guy who wanted to name the team "Dreadnaught." Elizabeth wearily says she's not even really up to talking about just how crappy her day really was. She interviews that it was like being "kicked in the stomach." And she wasn't sure if she was getting up. Maybe for the rest of the show, she'll just lie around. I hope it's not a spoiler if I say that I'm not sure it would make her any less effective or any less likely to win.
