Ultimately, he responds to Mishel’s questions about the romantic future of their relationship like a boss who’s been approached with an exasperating request from a subordinate. “Just leave it with me, I’ll see what I can sort out…” he suggests while checking his calendar and Sir your marriage is not a small business and your wife is not an employee.
Mishel has decided that she needs to speak to someone who’s going to be inexplicably mean to her, so immediately calls Stacey.
She explains how her husband has made the decision to socially distance from her indefinitely and when she asks for a cuddle he threatens to call the authorities etc. etc.
Stacey says that’s obviously because Steve isn’t attracted to her and that probably isn’t going to change in the last week of the experiment wtf is wrong with you and Mishel thanks her for her time.
But then things get complicated.
