A new director is hired to allow an over-stressed Paulie G to focus on writing. Seeing Paulie G on the verge of a breakdown, Valerie tries to persuade Tom to join his writing partner, but learns they haven't spoken in six years. HBO grants The New York Times an exclusive interview of Valerie, causing Billy to feel unappreciated and giving Valerie one more thing to worry about. Annoyed by the expanded presence of the crew at their home, Mark rents a house and moves out. Meanwhile, Valerie misinterprets early critical praise of her performance, and HBO considers converting Jane's content into a full-scale documentary.
