Mackenzie’s engaging in another pissing contest with Anchor Jane, this time because Jane wants to report that bin Laden’s dead and Mackenzie, pretending she always had her professional ethics, refuses until Charlie says so. They go back and forth, because Mackenzie only has a spine when she’s dealing with women, and Jane decides to just take matters into her own hands…until Mackenzie cuts her feed. Once properly chastened Mackenzie smarms at her that they won’t make the announcement until Charlie gives the go ahead and..oh how gross…it will be delivered by “the face and voice of Atlantis Cable News, Will McAvoy.” Who’s probably still tripping balls, but he has balls and Jane doesn’t so back off. Reading a teleprompter at times like this is man’s work, missy.
Even though Charlie JUST gave his rousing speech for them to remember where they were and what they were doing that night, Maggie’s got a bug up her ass because Jim hasn’t taken a couple of minutes out of his night trying to confirm bin Laden’s assassination to break up with Lisa. OH. MY. GOD. She has now passed Will in insufferability. Seriously, woman. It can wait a day. But no, she’s the Sookie and one of her back up mens is boning someone who isn’t a humorless pain in the ass and she can’t have that now, can she?
Big talk for someone who looks like Jessica Kringle.
Then, THEN, she demands that Jim, her boss, practice HOW he’s going to break up with Lisa because she doesn’t want it to be like Spiderman…and Lisa, who was ten feet away, finally walks over. NOW Maggie’s concerned about Lisa’s feelings and tells him to shut up. Why hasn’t she been fired, yet?
Lisa is unnecessarily and unrealistically kind toward Jim and basically tells him he’s too good for her so she’s breaking up with him because he’s too “polite” to do it himself. Ugh. At least Jim has the decency to realize he was a dick, even if Lisa didn’t say so. Oh, and Maggie is too busy eavesdropping because she doesn’t have the decency to realize just how very much she sucks.
With Jim off the hook Lisa thanks him for bringing her there…to sit around and get deneaned by her asshole roommate? Grow some dignity, sweetie. She walks over to Maggie’s desk who “kindly” asks what happened. When Lisa says she broke up with Jim Maggie just cannot believe it. But it only gets better. Lisa did it because she saw Maggie’s face when Jim said he loved her. Of course, Maggie’s such a gaping asshole she corrects Lisa that he actually said “I do, too,” (so horrible) then asks what Lisa’s talking about because Maggie’s with Don, wants her cake and not only eat it, too, but lose five pounds and have flawless skin while doing it, because she is a selfish, selfish, selfish piece of work.
This scene continues, but it’s just more bullshit where everyone has to make Maggie not feel like the dick she is, so moving on…and back to the plane where Don’s head has clearly imploded and he’s just sitting in his seat slack-jawed and dead. Oh, no. He’s throwing a pity party because the “biggest story of a generation” is happening and he’s missing it. But no one remembers what channel they were watching, they remember Obama walking down the corridor like a boss. The networks just provided the feed. Am I missing something?
