With the election looming Mannion's party seem likely to get in, a subdued Tucker returns to work but starts to rally in the face of Fleming's taunts that he is finished. Nonetheless the TV news is soon rife with news of his resignation - prompting some over-exuberant joy from certain colleagues - as he is head-hunted to host a TV show interviewing other political sacrificial lambs.
