Abe finds it grim not having support for his debate since Val can’t make it. Sheila’s got his back. She believes in him. She gives him some tricks on what to say during his speech to increase his ratings.
Abe smiles and admits Sheila’s growing on him. Melinda appears and vows to win today!
Melinda snarks off about Jennifer being Abe’s campaign publicist and the moderator. Jenn is a journalist and knows how to be objective. Melinda doubts it but isn’t afraid of “liberal bias.” She goes and Eve and Jack appear.
Though Jack was squeezed out of the race, they came to watch. Jennifer opens the televised debate and Abe begins his speech. He feels honored to been serving.
