Katie is in the elevator when Carol gets in. They both think the separation will be good for them though Carol is still naggy about Greg. Katie gets to the office and goes to see Greg. She tells him that she is cool and doesn’t need an answer anytime soon. He thanks her because he’s been stressing about this “complicated” situation and about the lawsuit.
Carol gets to the morning show but taping is over. She will be cleaning up wine stains while the pitch meeting takes place. She wants the fast track but a higher up tells her to stay in her lane. Katie and Greg meet with their attorney. He tells them to steer clear of the billionaire.
This doesn’t sit well with Katie’s journalistic integrity but the only person even remotely on her side is Chuck and he’s suspended. He tries to help her dig deep investigatively but his contacts are a bit outdated.
With Chuck suspended, Portia has to host the show alone. She needs some work which stress Katie but Greg is cool as a cucumber because he doesn’t have to do anything at the moment. Carol crashes the pitch meeting and the hosts love her. They want to put her on the show.
Chuck gets back to Katie’s office after a day of research. He thinks he has a lead. It’s not. He’s just a crazy old man but his proof may actually be evidence of something else. Katie thinks the billionaire shot his old business partner.
She takes it to Greg but he wants to think it over. He needs time, much like he needs time to think about being in a relationship with Katie. She starts to make that comparison but they get interrupted by Carol. She comes to tell them about her new on air gig.
Katie goes back and watches the video. She sees that they are making fun of her and goes to tell Carol. Naturally Carol is offended and just thinks Katie is trying to destroy her success. She turns it around and brings up Greg again. Katie goes and confronts him.
They get interrupted again though because Chuck is about to go Facebook live. He’s locked in his office so they try to talk to him through the door. It’s no use and they are left with one option. Carol. She’s on the air though.
She realizes Katie was right and that they are making a mockery of her. She says that she has to stand up for herself like her heroes, including Chuck. Katie has Justin patch the feed into Chuck’s office. It works. He doesn’t do the livestream. Carol quits and everyone is excited. They think she’s coming back. She’s not though. She wasn’t respected there either so she’s done.
I loved the Portia part where she thinks she is having a million dollar idea but it’s just newspapers. I don’t care much about Katie but I feel bad about the way Greg is treating her. Make a decision dude. I’m glad she stood up for herself.
