Added DiffLines:

* In a flashback in the season 3 finale to one of the very first conversations between Don and Sloan, she complains that Will let a senior bank executive get away with a non-answer during an interview, and that ''News Night'' had poached that guest from her show, where she wouldn't have let him get away with it. Don cuts her off by saying that no finance journalist has ever succeeded in explaining to him in simple terms how the banking crisis happened, the implication being that she can't make that stuff intelligible for TV because nobody can, and that that's why ''News Night'' didn't take her program seriously. Chastened, Sloan goes away. She returns a while later and explains in simple terms how the banking crisis happened. Don concedes that they shouldn't have poached her guest.

* In "Contempt," HR guy Wyatt admits he's been trolling Don and Sloan ForTheLulz and it isn't a big deal they are in a relationship. He then says he can follow what's been going on regarding the espionage story he isn't supposed to know about and [[spoiler: that they can't air it]]. He says he's sorry about that.

** Maggie getting her first on-air stand-up, after Elliott has an allergic reaction preventing him from doing so. Even though it's only a few brief seconds of coverage, everyone back at the station admits it's like "[[TookALevelInBadass she's grown ten years in a matter of days]]." Elliott gives her a bear hug and acts the proud papa right in Boston, instead of being upset she accidentally fed him walnuts.

** Will's speech at the end of the episode is heartwarming in 3 parts:
*** His defense of the police and the FBI following the Boston bombings, for finding two needles in a haystack 'the size of the world', and for having to publicly disclose information before they wanted to, because the 'citizen journalists' put lives in danger with their reckless and unethical 'investigations'.
*** His immediate demand to get Rebecca Halliday to defend Neal [[spoiler: who has accidentally committed espionage]].
*** And his assurance to Reese that they're going to do the news despite their dropping numbers, and that if Reese has their back, they won't let him get shot in his.
