Cheeks tells Haley about his plan to sabotage a national interview as a radical means toward social progression. Haley suggests Brady's charade is a better strategy to ultimately change public opinion and that Cheeks should reconsider. Confident Haley's plan is better, Cheeks agrees. Meanwhile, Brady's colleague, Mark (Mekhi Phifer), argues with Brady about "playing it safe" and persuades Brady to rethink his conservative stance. As the couple joins interviewer Vic Del Rey (Jon Cryer) for the live broadcast, neither has an inkling of the other's reversal.
