I think maybe Ken hired someone to write that rap.  I'm binging seasons 1 and 2 so all episodes are one in my mind, but I remember early one that Kendall told his Jess, to hire the "late night guys" to write some jokes.  So hiring someone to write his rap wouldn't be out of his realm.

Oh, I think it's a given that Ken hired the person who wrote the rap.

I am so curious about what she's like as a playwright. She seems so serious and dedicated and it's such a niche ambition that I can imagine her work being pretty cool, but then when she actually talks about the play she sounds so vapid (like she's fretting about desert sand v construction sand?)

This was my favorite obscure background story joke in a show full of them. There really is a difference between types of sand. There are sand brokers who provide businesses with the material most appropriate for their needs. Middle Eastern companies in the desert import the right sand for construction, pro volleyball games on the beach have special "beach volleyball" sand trucked in etc.

So she had a some reason to be unhappy that she didn't get the sand she paid for. Even if it wouldn't have saved her play.

(Especially if Greg was right about the mites.)

I'm sorry I couldn't remember if it was 207 or 208 (so, there are NO spoilers here) but Shiv's dress with the turtleneck that was backless was the most nonsensical combination of dress features.  

They are constantly putting Shiv in turtlenecks and it just seems really unimaginative.  Then to add backless on top of it?  Makes NO sense!

Also, I love Tabitha and don't want her written off the show. So we need to figure out how to not have Roman break up with her. 

I've seen this actor around so much (Unreal?  It's Complicated?) and for once, I actually really like her in a role.

Tthe theater stuff is weird.

i honestly didn’t understand why everyone kept calling Willa a prostitution when she’s been with Connor for years, has no other clients and has an artistic pursuit.

but when balloon actress said she was “not really” in theater I was like wait, what?

playwrights never say things like “these lines are placeholders.” Maybe you’d say that at a READING. 

But you don’t invite 1000 people to a reading and attend in a sparkly dress.

new plays almost never START on broadway- not now and pretty much not ever. Used to be they had out of town tryouts, now things often are at a regional theater first, or off broadway.

yes non musicals can cost a LOT of money- Harry Potter for example; they rebuilt the whole theater. Or to kill a mockingbird.

most original new plays are cheaper but still very expensive.

itis unheard of for there to be just one producer. Nothing in this plot line rings remotely true.

i do think we should know what the play is about.

i DIDNT get that Rhea will probably be pushed out soon- until I came here!

Because they have a straightforward financial arrangement where he pays her to be his girlfriend. That's how I've always understood it.

Agreed on the absurdity of how her play gets put on, but the one moment I remember having a different reaction to was the "placeholder" line, which I seem to remember was just her speaking out of nervousness when she suddenly thought it wasn't going over well. Not something a playwright would say, so underlining that she isn't really one.

Oh he’s still paying her? I somehow didn’t get that. Obviously he’s supporting her and all that but I didn’t get her taking a salary. Makes sense.

I wouldn't swear I was right about that, of course, but I always thought that was the deal, that he asked for a deal where she exclusively worked for him and presented herself as his girlfriend. So I thought she was still getting a salary rather than him just supporting her.

Would that wreck Conor?

Remember Stewy and Sandy offered Kendall $500 million for his stake in Waystar.  So you figure Shiv and Roman have similar stakes, worth several hundred million each, maybe over a billion.

So what is Conor worth?  Can't imagine he would only have say 1/10th of the other Roy siblings.

Connor would probably have a smaller amount of Waystar/Royco shares than Kendall.  Since Kendall was a high level executive at the company (who probably never worked anywhere else) part of his compensation would be company shares. I can see the kids all getting the same amount at birth, but depending on how much Connor spent on his ranch and his historical artifacts he might not have as much cash left as Shiv and Roman (who both have jobs).

Also, Ewan can stop with this mess about disowning Greg for being so greedy as to take a job at Logan’s company. Ewan is on the board of Waystar and I’m certain that that huge chunk of change he’d be leaving Greg comes from Ewan’s stake in Waystar, too. What’s good enough for the goose is good enough for the gander, Ewan. If it’s OK for Ewan to get rich taking Logan’s “blood money” than why isn’t it OK for Greg?

It’s ridiculous for Ewan to threaten to withhold the portion of Waystar/Logan’s money from Greg that he’d get directly from Ewan in return for not taking any money from Logan via Waystar. Or, not ridiculous, personal. This is about the brothers fighting for “ownership” of Greg, not about Ewan’s convictions about Waystar. If Ewan really believed in those convictions, he would have given up his seat on the board long ago and stopped cashing his own Waystar checks. Until that happens, he needs to look in the mirror next time he starts ranting about complicity.

I was actually thinking that in his own way Ewan is just as manipulative and abusive as Logan. He uses his money to control his family as well. It also raises interesting questions about why Greg and his mom seemed so broke at the beginning of the series if Grandpa Ewan is that loaded. I guess Greg’s mom didn’t do enough to fight climate change either! Man whatever happened to Ewan and Logan in their childhood home must have been bad. Those are two truly terrible humans.
