She is unaware that it’s 2:00 a.m. When Will informs her of the time, she quickly cuts the call. Kirk had actually picked up her call. Sylvia thinks that she just ruined her chances of getting this job.

After all the fuss, Sylvia eventually decides to sit for an interview with Kirk, who ends up hiring her.

Getting fired by Kirk

A tired Sylvia, after a long and exhausting day, works late and accidentally pushes Kirk’s portrait at the firm. The portrait gets a crack, and her attempts to fix it only make it worse.

Will comes to her aid. Sylvia and Will rely on one of the artists Audrey knows to fix the portrait. This artist works on the painting and ruins Kirk’s nose area.

The next day, Sylvia hangs the painting back in its place, even though it hasn’t been fixed. Though she takes efforts to make sure that Kirk doesn’t see it, he still notices it.

The HR manager at Kirk’s firm goes through the CCTV footage and finds out that it’s Sylvia’s doing; Sylvia is then fired from the firm.
