    Looking across the room, his gaze lands on Will and Mackenzie, and his mind is blown all over again. Zero to engaged in one evening, and during a seven minute commercial break, no less.

    Summary

    Between the meetings about the law suit, the slew of related news stories coming at them, and the Election Night debrief, Mackenzie has barely had a moment to think, to breathe, so it's after the two o'clock rundown by the time she finally makes it into her office and sits down, and the first email waiting for her makes her groan.

    Summary

    She looks away because she suddenly feels defeated, tired. Tired of always trying, tired of feeling on the edge of a breakthrough with him, only to have it pulled out from under her every time.

    Summary

    Why she thought she could clear her head out here she isn't sure, but despite the heat it's nice to be outside where she can at least think without being interrupted by Brian's smug tone, or Will's current mood.

    Summary

    He's known her long enough to know that if she's gone before he's even finished getting changed it means she's avoiding him. It's not the first time and he doubts it will be the last. More often than not he just lets it go, heads home and drinks alone, wondering if he should call her, or what she'd do if he were to show up at her door without warning.

    Not tonight though; tonight he's going to find her.

    Summary

    She doesn't sleep, and at 4:30 she gives up trying. There are no messages from Will, and she toys with calling him, her finger hovering over his name on the screen before she decides against it and makes coffee instead. It seems to take her forever to shower, dress, dry her hair, and the whole time she feels like she's wading through treacle, her mind constantly replaying the night before, recalling his coldness, his hurt, his refusal to let her stay and explain any further.

    Summary

    September 15, 2017 Judge Timothy Wilson found former St. Louis police office Jason Stockley not guilty of first degree murder of Anthony Lamar Smith. Expecting this to become a major news headline on a day that included 3 other major news stories, ACN assigned each newsroom a particular story to run point on. The News Night producers now have to find ways to work past their biases about the case to cover the Stockley verdict in a fair way.

    Summary

    He sighs but she can tell he isn’t angry anymore, resigned and a little frustrated perhaps, he had never known her to listen when he wanted her to. “If you’re going to do this-”

    “That's sweet, Will.” She flashes him a smile knowing he hadn’t intended to make the gallant overture she’s implying, even if he wasn’t going to let her do this on her own.

    “You'd better be standing in front of me when they come for us.”

    “I'm quite a good with a handgun; I'm an excellent shot. My hand to hand is a little-”

    “All right, but if this blows up,” he cuts her off with a look, “don't hang around.”

    “I'd prefer not to take my foot off the landmine in the first place.” She tells him seriously. “We'd both be better off that way.”
