I read most of this thread (thanks, everyone), but didn't notice a comment about Aubrey virtually giving Donald some attitude. (Don't recall anyone doing that before.) It's easy to see how she could have given P. Diddly some attitude. She's a loose canon like her alter ego Lampanelli.
I love Dayana. She's a textbook for Lisa on how to behave with grace and dignity under pressure. She states her case. She doesn't back down. She doesn't cry. She doesn't raise her voice. How often do you see a girl with great character and smoking looks?!
I enjoyed her very expressive (but not overly dramatic) boardroom responses to the proceedings which caught Donald's attention, too.
She's been completely underestimated. Multiple boardroom meetings but the brunette with the red lipstick lives to fight another day...
I hope Donald one week lets a winning project manager fire somebody from the losing team (he can make any excuse - he was out of town that week). Ideally, Dayana fires Lisa!
And when she walks off, D. lights a cigar and says, "Hasta la vista, baby."
