Meanwhile, the guys find their own barebones office. Anand has a real estate background, and is happy to be back in that field. Anand pushes that the office space be applicable to any industry. Gene's a little stressed out at jumping right back into working after spending three years trying to figure out what he wants to do again. Gene's idea is to make a "green office space," which James thinks is a terrific idea, but he says Gene has no idea what that means. Their architectural renderer shows up, and James is disappointed that Gene doesn't sit down and work with this guy for the limited time they have him. Gene's too busy off discussing what color the drapes should be. Maybe his style is less tacky than Tyana's, though, at least.
Back with Fortitude, Nicole confuses everyone by not telling anyone what to do. It bugs Mahsa, because she can't tell if Nicole wants her to get food or paint while Nicole, Tyana, and Poppy meet with the architect. It's really not a big deal, but she's definitely asking other people what they want. Mahsa thinks Nicole looks good on the outside, but there's no substance. Nicole sends Tyana away to help pick paint, and Tyana's already annoyed Nicole doesn't want to listen to her. Over at Octane, James and Anand take over and spend time with the architect to get their ideas on paper. Clint's frustrated that James and Anand took it over since Clint's apparently a "Struggling property developer." James thinks Gene's to blame for the team's lack of focus.
Mahsa, Tyana and Brandy (who?) are back with sandwiches and paint. Nicole immediately leaves with Stephanie to go buy electronics. They bicker over laptops versus desktops, and then about Tyana. Stephanie doesn't understand why Nicole wouldn't use someone in the real estate design business to design a space. Mahsa gets into an argument with Brandy, who's painting, because Mahsa's washing windows. It turns into a fight for nothing, because it looks to me like everyone's working hard, just at different jobs; isn't that sort of the point? Poppy and Brandy think Mahsa's a bitch. Which she sort of seems to be, because she thinks Brandy's not doing anything over there with her paint roller. David and Clint get tasked with buying trees and plants, which is the one place where it seems all the guys have an opinion. David's frustrated with all of the indecisions. Clint's going to call to the colorful plants Gene wants, but he tells Gene it might be tense because David wants bonsai trees. Gene says he has Clint's back. So David lies to get the phone, and it turns into an actual screaming match between Clint and David. OVER PLANTS VERSUS FLOWERS. What is this show? Anand breaks up the fight as Gene stands there. Clint thinks David was the biggest distraction, but he thinks it's all to blame on Gene's lack of leadership.
