21 Aug 1992 (Part 2) – Blake tells Roger that Holly fired her. Roger and Holly argue over Holly’s authority to do so. When Holly gets close to telling Roger about Blake and Ross, Blake agrees to find a new job and a new place to stay. Holly storms into her office when Roger insults her mothering skills. Alone, Roger asks Blake for an update on her efforts to find some dirt against Ross. Blake insists that there’s nothing to be found against Ross, but Roger believes there’s always something. Roger suggests that Blake take a break for a few days. In Holly’s office, Ross chastises Holly for firing Blake. Holly could care less about Ross’ guilt trip. Ross calls Holly petty and vindictive for taking her anger at Ross out on Blake. Ross reminds Holly that they were not involved when he hooked up with Blake, but Holly sees it differently. Later, Ross and Blake meet up again at the restaurant. Ross tells Blake that she worries too much. Blake tells him about Roger asking her to look for dirt in Ross’ life. Ross is not worried about their affair being found out, and he intends to have both Blake and the Senate. Meanwhile, back at WSPR, Roger tells Gilly to check out all the women whom Ross comes into contact with, to learn who is having an affair with Ross. Gilly is uncomfortable with the assignment, but Roger could care less.
