We certainly start with a lot of post-Boardroom clashes. With Aubrey still missing, the members of Unanimous suggest that Teresa Giudice should be the next Project Manager, as Aubrey might actually listen to her. Meanwhile, when Lisa Lampanelli returns from the Boardroom, she's shocked to find Aubrey missing, though she says she can understand it after having "two guys ganging up" on her.
Arsenio Hall explains why he was quite so angry with Aubrey - it was because he was so focused on winning the money for his charity, because of the personal meaning it has for him. But when he uses words like "bitch" and "wh*re" to describe her, Lisa is furious and they're soon arguing. Referring to his use of language, Lisa tells Arsenio: "Every woman in America is going to f**king hate you!" Paul Teutel Sr announces that it's like "poking beehives" and takes the sensible route of sitting in a chair and hiding out.
Lisa's mood does not improve when Lou Ferrigno and Dayana Mendoza return from the Boardroom. "What the f**k happened?" she asks in astonishment, later saying she had a "mental breakdown" when she saw them: "The five f**king braincells between them." She announces that they're both "f**king useless" and advises Penn Jillette to get a lot of sleep: "You're going to be doing 50% of the f**king work from now on with me." Ouch! Seems Forte might have a tough ride this week...
The Task Delivery
Aubrey's back, everyone! She explains that she was "bullied" by Clay Aiken and Arsenio, but she's back for her charity - she has to "take a stand against these bullies". Yikes. But what's the challenge this week? Well, Donald Trump explains that they have to create a 60-second commercial for Entertainment.com's digital services.
Dayana immediately nominates herself as Forte's project manager, much to Lisa's disdain ("Instead of huddling up, Evita over here yells she'll be project manager. I will cry for you Argentina because you'll lose for us.") Over on the other side, Teresa is chosen to lead, though she admits that she's nervous about the Arsenio and Aubrey time bomb. There's a lot at stake - $60,000 for the winning project manager's charity!
The first order of business is to sort out the Aubrey and Arsenio situation. Aubrey admits that she didn't want to come back and says Arsenio hurt her. For his part, Arsenio promises to explain why he blew up the way he did and apologises - he never meant to hurt her. Afterwards, he's pleased that they've made up and can move on... though Aubrey later says: "I know Arsenio apologised, but do I really like him? No. Will I ever really like him again? Probably not. But I have to bite my tongue for a while and be a team player." Will it work, though?
Well, yes! The team quickly comes up with the concept of an old man sitting and cutting out coupons, while his daughter teaches him about the digital side of Entertainment.com. What's more, they decide to use Aubrey as the daughter, and Paul as the father - though he's going to be made up to be more "dowdy"! Clay gets to work on the script and makes it full of double entendres - Paul's character thinks his daughter is up to no good with her boyfriend, though actually she's checking out the discounts she can get. But they're going to edit it to make sure it's not too dirty.
Actually, the team gets along pretty smoothly (though Aubrey complains about Teresa: "She thinks saying action makes her a director.") There's a lot of fun to be had with new-look Paul, too - when Ivanka Trump comes to visit, she even says it might be the highlight of her week! But when she asks about their commercial and Aubrey butts in, she's not so impressed: "To me, the right thing to do, especially after the criticism last week, would be to defer to Teresa as project manager."
Otherwise, everything's going swimmingly - though the team are starting to run out of time to get everything edited. Clay and Arsenio are sent off to get started while the rest of filming is completed, though Aubrey complains in confessional that Teresa isn't efficient enough. And when they go to get the editing completed, at the last minute Aubrey says that they shouldn't describe the coupons as "old-fashioned" as it could alienate consumers. But it's too late to change now... "[Aubrey's] biggest talent is covering her ass," Clay says.
Then all that remains is to present the commercial to the executives - will they be impressed? Well, Aubrey's pretty sure that Arsenio and Clay will start "gang banging" on Teresa if they lose. "I absolutely do not trust Arsenio or Clay," she warns.
Penn's got to leave early for a show again, so there's no time to waste with Forte (and Lisa moans that she'll be left with Dayana and Lou). Dayana quickly comes up with an idea about a couple using Entertainment.com and the team agree to focus on a couple dating, marrying and having children - all the while using Entertainment.com.
In confessionals, Lou complains about the team's decision to use actors - he thinks that he should be involved in the commercial as the group should use their "star power". But Dayana asks him to focus on making some banners for the presentation.
Actually, the team works surprisingly well - even Lisa and Dayana! ("It's the closest this atheist came to experiencing a miracle," Penn jokes.) The women are very pleased with the progress of their commercial (describing it as "cute" at every opportunity), but ignore Lou's suggestions to use a different camera angle.
In fact, Donald Trump Jr is pretty surprised to see how well things are going, though he suggests that Dayana's delegated much of the creative work to Lisa, as usual. Still, he points out that it's a win-win situation - even if they lose, she could blame Lisa for the commercial. If that's the case, Lisa hasn't noticed - she's shocked by how hard Dayana has worked. She's less impressed with Lou... especially when Dayana checks if he's made the banners and he hasn't. She ends up making them herself with Lisa, as Lou doesn't understand the computer.
There's a bit more tension in the editing suite, as Lou suggests including a shot of the phone and Entertainment.com logo at certain parts of the commercial. The women agree to try it but quickly discount it. "Lou's idea is just stupid," Lisa complains later. Meanwhile, Lou insists that if he didn't like the commercial he would tell them... then in confessional says he doesn't like it and complains they didn't listen to him.
Will the commercial impress the executives? We'll have to wait and see. But Lou predicts "fireworks" in the Boardroom and says he doesn't trust Lisa. "I don't like to be called a f**king loser," he adds.
After discussing the commercials with the executives, Donald calls the teams into the Boardroom to deliver the verdict! He begins with Forte - Dayana's reluctant to name any weak members on her team, but eventually goes for Lou as he didn't contribute much. Lisa agrees, adding that she was actually impressed with Dayana.
Lou does not take this well and announces that if Lisa was a man, he'd throw her through the wall. He complains that she called him a "f**king loser" and is very negative. Unsurprisingly, Lisa does not sit back and take this, and there's a serious Boardroom argument going on, as Lisa shouts at him not to threaten her again and Lou retorts that she's disrespectful.
When Lou calls Lisa "phoney" for being different inside and outside of the Boardroom, Lisa warns that he should get ready for an elevator ride because she does all the work. Lou insists that he was just criticising her in a nice way and adds that he doesn't fight with women. "You just did," Lisa replies.
The other team has mostly just widened their eyes and mouths up to now, but Donald asks them if they heard Lisa call Lou a "f**king loser" as he claims. They desperately try to remain non-committal and Donald changes the subject to Aubrey, as Unanimous explain that they all worked well together this week. "I probably got the right result with the wrong language," Arsenio explains. Clay agrees that everyone worked well together, and praises Teresa as a project manager.
There's time to have a giggle about Paul's new look in the commercial, and then Donald asks Teresa if she has a weak link on her team. She admits that she doesn't and reveals that she would struggle to choose anyone to bring back - they'd all have to come back. Ivanka chips in to mention that she thought Aubrey took over when she was describing the commercial, and advises Aubrey that she is very polarising and has to be wary of alienating people.
It's time to watch the commercials, and then Donald asks for the other team's opinions. Donald takes the opportunity to ask Dayana why she didn't put anyone from her team in the video, and Lou pipes up to say that he wanted to do that. But Lisa claims that he never brought that up during the task. But the real drama comes when Lou admits that he liked Unanimous's commercial better than his own. "I think it's a Benedict Arnold turncoat thing to do," Lisa complains, adding that it's easy for Lou to do since he contributed nothing.
Yes, we're back into a fight between Lou and Lisa as they argue about what Lou contributed - Lisa thinks he kept all his ideas inside until the Boardroom, and added nothing but muscle. Lou says that she's negative, but he did say that the other team's commercial was better... Donald admits that he wants people to be honest, but maybe this wasn't exactly the way to go about it!
But let's leave that aside for the moment and find out the winner... it's Unanimous! Teresa is thrilled to win $60,000 for her charity and thanks her team for their help. But that means Forte are in the firing line...
Who's Going Home?
Dayana's surprised that her team lost... but Lou's not. Lisa describes his comment that he preferred the other commercial as a "traitor mentality" and again complains that he did nothing to contribute.
Dayana says everybody did a good job... but admits that Lou wasn't as helpful. Penn agrees, saying that he never heard Lou suggest that they should star in the video themselves. But it's time to get down to business - who will be safe from getting fired? Dayana ultimately decides to save Penn from the Boardroom, as he contributed a lot before going away. Though she adds that Lisa does have an "amazing skill of writing".
There's a lot of tension between Lou and Lisa as they wait to return to the Boardroom, but when they come back Donald asks Dayana why she shouldn't be fired even though she was project manager. She explains that she worked really hard and admits to being confused about Lou praising the other team's commercial over their own. And she adds that he never spoke up in their brainstorms, either. Lisa agrees that Lou is trying to stay under the radar, and he doesn't add much but "brawn".
"Thank God you're not my wife," Lou retorts, as Lisa replies: "I feel the exact same way." Lou admits that he's sometimes a little slow to catch on because of his hearing problems, but Lisa argues that he uses that as an excuse, describing it as "absolutely manipulative". There's yet more fighting about Lisa being disrespectful and Lou's decision to praise the other commercial. Don admits that he doesn't know whether he's impressed with Lou's honesty or unhappy with his disloyalty.
Dayana says she shouldn't be fired because the executives did like the commercial - just not as much as the other one. And Donald agrees that the challenge was very close. In the end, he fires Lou for his "great disloyalty" to his team. Lou initially refuses to accept this - "I don't want to be fired!" - but Donald won't take it back. "Thank you, I appreciate it," Lou says. Once he's gone, Donald admits that he didn't like Lou's disloyalty as Ivanka says he dug his own grave and Don says they've always been taught: "Loyalty is everything."
Afterwards, Lou says he feels "pretty good" - he couldn't give any more and played the game honestly. He says he's proud of giving his opinion, and hey, he was right - the other team won!
