When Maya complains that the title for her latest article was changed without her knowing it, Jack offers an invitation to fill in for him as a guest lecturer at a university seminar. Though preferring assurances that her work won't be tampered with in the future, Maya cannot resist the chance to speak. But when the audience doesn't hesitate to attack the magazine for objectifying women and promoting inequality, Maya appeals for calm as she tries to defend the changes she's already made. Meanwhile, Nina seeks Elliott's help reviving her modeling career. But after agreeing to be painted gold for her pictures, she's stunned when Elliott is out of the solvent to remove the paint. Following her disastrous lecture, an article in the student newspaper exposes Maya's less than flattering remarks about her co-workers. Reminding his daughter of the many good works the magazine has performed over the years, Jack admonishes her to defend it at every opportunity. Written by

Wendie Malick was disappointed that the staircase was removed, as it provided her character with the opportunity to make distinct and comedic entrances.
