Will realizes that self-preservation trumps being a dick 24/7 and backs off to start knocking on Dr. Habib’s door. Does he not realize how therapy works? Lonny tries to get him to stop acting like a gaping asshole but Will thinks it’s okay. Dr. Habib opens the door and tells Will he’s with a patient and Will needs to come at his scheduled time. Then Will actually says he might be dead by then, but only to get Habib’s attention because Will’s an awful, awful person. He thinks that because he blew $250 a session every week for four years that he’s somehow owed that time now. Gah. Or someone who needed that time could have used it, asswipe. Will says he’ll “forgive the debt” if Habib will give him “one minute.” And Habib does. For real? Does anyone ever have to deal with the consequences of their actions on this show?
Then Will insults Habib saying he “caved for the money” and Habib corrects him, saying he’s “getting the sessions he paid for.” (That doesn’t even make sense) First Will zigs about selling out every one of his principles and being a petty tyrant at work, but that’s not his problem so he zags and whines that he orchestrated having Mackenzie’s ex interview him. Habib gives him some pat answer about putting his hand over the candle but needing to forgive Mackenzie, but Will doesn’t want to do that because he likes slut shaming her. Habib tries one last time to appeal to Will’s decency, nay, civility and reminds him that while he’s acting like a petulant little prince he’s also hurting Mackenzie, Will just looks at Habib like he told Will he has spinach in his teeth and says “I know.” Lonny judges Will who says he’s not doing it on purpose and they leave. Please, Lonny, just push him in front of a bus. Then Elliot can take over News Night after Charlie sends Mackenzie, Jim and Maggie off to points unknown. Everybody WINS!
You are an awful person.
Maggie’s in the newsroom so Chris Matthews’ kid can tell her Sandy, the Weiner pic woman, is there. Maggie establishes that she was in communication with the congressman so Sandy can say yes then hand over a folder with the tweets. For no reason other than Sorkin’s an awful, awful person, he has Maggie read them, out loud, in case anyone in his audience didn’t get to fully bask in one man’s ability to completely and publicly self destruct. Because schadenfreude is tasty.
Properly repulsed by the tawdriness of it all, Maggie wants to know why Sandy came forward. She gives her prepared comment about the “world needing to know what kind of man he is.” Maggie points out she wasn’t coerced or harassed but Sandy keeps repeating that “the world needs to know what kind of man he is.” Maggie asks if she knows Dylan Kagan and she says yes, he’s her agent so Maggie reminds Sandy that the Congressman is in a lot of trouble, of his own doing, and wants to know if Sandy really wants to pile on. Sandy just keeps giving her pat answer. By the way, the real woman at the heart of the story did not try to cash in on it. But I guess an honorable woman at the center of a scandal doesn’t fit Sorkin’s meme.
I’m a sexist stereotype.
