Unintended consequences abound in this episode of The Newsroom, and Brian and Lex have much to abudiate. People act like babies, we can’t quite figure out the installed apps on Jim’s Mac, and we debate who’s at fault for what happened in Uganda. One intended consequence of listening to this episode is clear: We will delight you as you join us for this week’s episode of Sorkin’ In It.

Who the heck is Willie Pete — another new character?! We investigate that, while Will tries to figure out who leaked info to Nina. Jim tries to overthrow the Romney bus. And Maggie’s getting ready for Uganda. Meanwhile, Brian and Lex are still struggling to love the Genoa plotline. We’re trying.

With a title like “The Genoa Tip”, you might be excused for thinking this episode of The Newsroom is about a piece of genoa salami, but no, my friend, this an episode about lots of things that aren’t that. It’s actually the title of Season 2, Episode 2 of The Newsroom, and while there are lots of complicated plot lines that may or may not hold together, you’re safe in Lex and Brian’s capable hands.

The Blackout continues! And then immediately… it ends. The News Night team pitches the RNC on why they should get the debate, Maggie and Jim convince Lisa to talk about her barely-there relationship with Casey Anthony, Neal is trolling, and there are rosebuds and flowers afoot. Brian and Lex just try to keep up.

It’s the first half of a Newsroom two-parter. Will succumbs to ratings pressure and starts covering Casey Anthony, because he’s desperate to reinvent presidential debates. Leona’s desperate to find a way to fire Will. Anthony Weiner… Well, he’s just plain desperate. Oh, and Mackenzie’s ex is writing a cover story on Will — at Will’s invitation. Brian and Lex are just trying to keep Sorkin’ In It.

Who ARE the bullies? Will’s journalistic integrity is threatened by an interview that pushes the boundaries of both his professional and personal ethics. Sloan stumbles in covering a Japanese nuclear accident. And Brian and Lex don’t necessarily agree on who the real bullies are. One thing they DO agree on, though: It’s time to get Sorkin’ In It.

It’s the Valentine’s Day episode, so of course The Newsroom focuses on… an embedded stringer reporter in Egypt during Arab Spring. Meanwhile, Will sets his sights on the Koch brothers, and Mackenzie’s becoming gossip fodder. But mostly, Brian and Lex are really frustrated with the ridiculously misplaced Rudy homage. Amen to that.
