Backbone. Lil Jon wants to do some big special effect, so he wants the car to fall into the frame. He also wants the college kid to push the previous vignette away, but the director thinks that's not possible without a green screen.
ASAP. Star's still grilling Meat Loaf, who wants her to shut the hell up. Star says she wishes Marlee had taken the lead more, but she's totally acquiesced to Meat Loaf. The commercial director is ready to go, so Star says she's going to go along with it. Star giggles through the first take. Then calls OnStar "All Star" in the second one. Marlee asks if they want cue cards or something, and she does. Marlee says Star had a tough time memorizing her scenes, so it ended up taking forever. She screws up another take and stops again. Meat Loaf tells her just to keep going. He interviews that he started thinking Star was going to lay this failure on him if they lose, but he's not going down without a fight. She tries again, but her brain is fried. She finally gets it, just as Don shows up. Marlee asks him if he wants to watch the monitor and he does. Don says he saw more tension than he thought this team had. But Meat Loaf and Marlee write it off as their different brains. Star finishes and then they shoot their vignettes, which include a police officer finding Marlee's stolen car, then the cop wanting to find a donut shop. They use OnStar for all of it, of course. Then they end up at a donut shop, where OnStar operator Star shows up, too.
Marlee thinks maybe she let Meat Loaf have too much control. Star says this creative isn't her style, and Meat Loaf is vulnerable since he took on so much creative responsibility. Marlee wants a final shot of the product, but Star tells them they don't need it, since they have it on the disc. Star wants them to get going to the edit. The team takes the elevator, but Jack takes the stairs. Sort of weird.
Backbone. Lil Jon feels like they're the Men in Black as they walk toward their edit bay. Rich thinks the other team got too complicated and is falling behind. They're not even in their edit bay yet, with only two hours to finish editing. They're stuck in traffic, where there's a fire. They get out to walk to the edit bay, and Meat Loaf starts running.
