Will McAvoy approaches Brenner to write a piece about the new approach of his News Night program. He selects Brenner specifically because of their history - In 2005, Brian was in a relationship with MacKenzie McHale, who dumped her. Dealing with the rejection poorly, Mac saw Brian's calls in 2006 during the time she was dating Will as a form of redemption, a way to relieve the feeling of rejection she felt, and began an affair with Brian for four months during her relationship with Will, until both relationships ended in early 2007.
