Feeling a tad insecure about the status of his job due to his editorial about the suspension of student athletes who protested the Confederate flag in Tennessee, Isaac (Robert Guillaume) pulls Dana (Felicity Huffman) aside and in confidence tells her his plans to groom her for his job. After providing some token protests, Dana leaves and mentions her conversation with Isaac to Natalie (Sabrina Lloyd), who in turn begins to covet Dana's job -- as does Dana's sickeningly gorgeous and manipulative rival Sally (Brenda Strong) upon hearing the rumors later in the day. Natalie tells her boyfriend Jeremy (Joshua Malina), who then tells everyone on the crew -- prompting a somewhat annoyed Isaac to call a staff meeting to clear up all the rumors. As the rumors continue to spread, Dan (Josh Charles) decides that Casey (Peter Krause) ought to return to the dating scene -- though Dan is forced to intervene after catching Casey flirting with Sally. Dana, learning of Casey's lack of dating skills, tells him to practice flirting with her, which results in a somewhat steamy -- and awkward -- interchange.
