Joe R: B- | Grade It Now!
Walking and Talking

Previously: The guys' team won again and Patricia was eliminated, and given that the previous scenes focus on Teresa's interpersonal issues and Clay and Penn's feud, look for that to crop up in this episode.

Post-Pinkslip Aftermath:
Aubrey comes back to the apartment weeping, and everybody else kind of indulges her dramatics with smirks on their faces. Penn whispers his support to Dayana quietly, which is such a perfectly Penn thing to do. Dayana is shaken to have lost her girl, and Debbie is worried that the women's team angst is going to continue to hobble them.

Later, Clay delivers a check to National Inclusion Project, and I guess these things never stop looking incredibly contrived, then? At least Crystal Light got their product placement on the check.

The Task:
The teams will both design and sell a New York City "celebrity guidebook." The best book will get a $35,000 bonus added to their sales, and the most sales overall will win. Don Jr. and Ivanka will be on the judging panel, and a special "guest celebrity" (Regis, duh, we've all seen the promos) will decide who did the best book. Teresa and Dee step up to be project managers.

Team Forte:
As we all know, Teresa is an idiot who says things like, "We need to raise a lot of money," as if it's a directive. Meanwhile, Dayana tries to get out front with "creative ideas," none of which we actually see. Basically, Dayana has decided to step up her telling everybody how much she's stepping up. Debbie and Lisa go out to photograph their sites, while Dayana, Teresa and Aubrey go out in another group. The Debbie/Lisa group appear to be rather efficient, while Aubrey bitches (and makes fun of Dayana's accent) about how Teresa and Dayana don't have their shit together and are taking a billion shots in order to make sure they look good. This manifests itself into a huge fight back in the workspace, as not only are Dayana, Teresa and Aubrey late in getting back (where they only have a graphic designer booked for a finite amount of time), but their shots aren't that great. Lisa takes it upon herself to write all the copy and basically put the whole book together, and she's insanely annoyed whenever Dayana breathes, much less suggests they toss in subway directions to each destination, which Lisa sees as an eleventh-hour distraction. Lisa finally flips out, both in the workroom and in her interview, about how much she's doing and how stupid everyone else is.
