The American Journalism Award nominations are in. The show and Katie are both nominated. Everyone, especially Chuck, is thrilled. Katie is worried that Carol will mess it up. Greg tells her to just not bring her mother. Katie tells Carol but blames Greg.
The gang goes to the award show. Katie goes to take a selfie to send to Carol but she pops up. She was hired as a seat filler. Chuck runs into some old friends including Shooter McGavin and ditches the team to hang out with them. Katie is already mortified. She meets a guy named Jeremy (Reid Scott) and finally has a chance to hob knob.
They are all seated by the bathroom and don’t get food. Chuck bashes the show and everyone overhears it. Katie is so busy fighting with Jeremy that she loses Carol. Her category goes off and she loses but Carol doesn’t embarrass her.
Chuck finds out that not selling out isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. His old friends are kind of duds. Katie tracks down Carol in the bathroom. She realizes that Carol cared about the show’s award. It’s the first time she’s been recognized for anything. It was a miscommunication and now she’s getting the boot and it’s all Katie’s fault,
At the last second, Katie saves the day and gets Carol back in. They lose and Katie pulls a Kanye but then Chuck and Portia add-on. As they leave, Katie exchanges business cards with Jeremy.
Katie is kind of a brat. And we knew that Chuck would end up selling the team out but redeeming himself in the end. Portia is still the best.
