“Let me give you some advice before you’re yanked out of here like a cheerleader’s unwanted fetus: you say nothing, and you do less.” – Roger Furlong
CNN reports on the Senate vote for Vice President;because the presidency is vacant, the winner will assume the role.
On video chat, Selina tells President Lu she is excited to continue working with him. Lu responds he is excited to work with Senator James. Selina retires to the Oval to watch the Senate vote, which results in another tie. The final decision is in the hands of the current Vice President, Doyle, who votes for Senator Laura Montez. Amy’s intel suggests Doyle orchestrated the whole thing because he is getting Secretary of State.
Gary melts down, accusing the entire team of letting “that magnificent woman” down.
One day before Montez’s inauguration, Selina clears out her office. Ben and Kent run into each other at a publisher’s office. Mike updates the press with Montez’s itinerary, and Selina sees on MSNBC that Charlie Baird has been selected as Secretary of the Treasury.
Selina finds Richard cleaning out Jonah’s old office and invites him for a drink. She ponders how she will get by in the real world before curling up, drunk, on the floor.
The next morning, Selina wakes up hungover. Jonah’s roughhousing with his staffers disturbs Roger Furlong, who tells him the first rule of hiring male staff: “They must be substantially less attractive than the congressman.”
