Lou's being a suck up, two-faced, throw people under the bus, persona finally caught up to him. I think what really cost Lou was his refusal to go for Lisa's throat.
He was given the opportunity to explain why Lisa should go and instead, he went after Dayana. Amazing how Lisa has bullied everyone into submission.
Personally, I wouldn't back down from her... the Trumps are seeing that she is always losing and that is THE way to finally take her out. She continues to say she does either 90 percent, or (with Penn), 50 percent of every task. The result is, is that she's done MOST of every one of the 7 out of 9 tasks that they've LOST! That is probably the worst track record in apprentice history! Yet, she continues to spout off about being the person who does all the work. She's a celebrity apprentice LOSER, if there ever was a definition of one.
I'd love to see her and Arsenio go head to head in the boardroom. He may be the only one who has the guts to tell it like it is with her.
ETA: By the way, I was a little disappointed with Dayana this episode. I understand she was probably relieved to not be the object of Lisa's venemous bitch attitude for a change, but did she really think that Lisa was now going to be her bff? Anytime it's Lisa in the boardroom is a chance to get rid of her and her bad creative work. As long as Lisa continues to do 90 percent of the work, they are doomed to be LOSERS.
