Trump asks who Clint would fire, and he sides with Scott. He suggests Trump should fire Tom because he was purposefully undermining Scott. With that, group discussion closes, and Trump lets Scott pick adversaries. Scott harkens back to last year and decides to pick two opponents even though it's really just a contest between Tom and him. Scott decides to bring Herschel back into the boardroom -- more as an advocate than as an opponent. Trump commands the ladies to turn off their TV, and they discuss their ambivalent feelings toward Tom.
In the waiting room, Tom acts diplomatically (genuinely or not, I don't know), but Scott and Herschel remain stone-faced Scott and Herschel. Inside the boardroom, Trump, Don and Erin caucus. Erin believes the men's team won't survive if both Tom and Scott stay on board. Don points out that Clint rubbed some people the wrong way and, therefore, questions why Scott chose to bring back Herschel. Trump calls the men back in.
Scott starts the final round of discussion, saying his attention and ability to lead were compromised by Tom's scatterbrained working style. Tom shakes his head and interrupts to insist that his teammates didn't understand what he was trying to do. This is actually a fairly brilliant move. It's totally ambiguous and, thus, impossible to disprove. And, as a bonus, Scott tries to demonstrate Tom's insanity, which only ends up making him look like the crazy one. Well played, Mr. Green, well played. After Scott's little episode, Tom interjects and claims he -- as opposed to, say, Clint -- was trying to bring positivity and enthusiasm, despite being cut down, sidelined and belittled all day.
