Meanwhile, Elliott and Finch conspire to sabotage Nina's radio debate. As Cindy continues posing problems, Maya turns to her dad for advice. When Jack suggests firing her, Maya doesn't have the nerve. However, after learning that Jack fired the bumbling assistant himself, Maya storms in to his office to complain, only to find herself interrupting another important meeting. And not one to be pushed around by her dad, she hires Cindy back without telling him.
