Michael's hair looks different somehow.
After butchering animals and cooking in the sun, working on low tables that make Kevin Sbraga's back hurt, with induction burners that crap out every five minutes, time is up. The judges judge and they choose Tiffany's dish over Kevin's, Hosea's over Carla's, Stephanie's over Antonia's, Blais' over Stephanie's, and Frankendouche's over Michael's.
Blais is impressed that Count Douchela beat Michael, and realizes he's stiff competition.
The old winners (some of whom are now losers, some of whom were always
Doucheface says last time he had a police escort, he was going to jail.
Eventually, the motorcade is halted by what appears to be either a street festival or a commercial shoot for Victoria's Secret's latest line of Angel Boobslings.
Tom finds the chefs hiding from the fire in one of the dining room's wooden booths. (They're chefs, not rocket scientists.) He has some bad news for them - their food is ruined and they have to prep everything all over again, in a new kitchen. Blais and Antonia take this opportunity to change their dishes to something less-formal, but the other three stick with their original plan. After the kitchen at Twin Brothers is properly hosed down, the finalists return to complete their cooking and serve their food.
Now, with even more limited kitchen equipment than before, Carla is forced to use a portable deep-fryer to cook her pork tenderloins. As with the season 5 finale, she is using a technique that she normally would not use and hopes this time it will turn out for her. However, her loins turn out rare in the middle so she must slice them into portions and finish cooking them on the flat top. When she serves her dish, the judges think her accompaniments of apple and sweet potato are too sweet (Ripert keeps insisting that they are more like "dais-air" than an entree), and Gail's pork is indeed rare in the middle.
The Douchemeister offers his original dish of chicken, cooked sous vide, with lobster hash. The judges call his dish "surprising" and "a dish fit for a king." Gail nitpicks and thinks his breast is dry. I think, with that wingbone sticking up in the air, that it looks like roadkill. Or Beetle Bailey after a run-in with Sarge.
Finally, Tiffany brings out a spiced pork tenderloin with dirty rice, curried slaw, and tomato ginger jam that the judges call "unexciting" and "dry" and "needing sauce" and "maybe if you call something 'curried' you should use some curry."
Eventually what turned out to be a very long day is over and the chefs head to a very swanky stew room to await their fates. Padma calls all of them out and they are told that the meal as a whole missed the mark. Douchenberg made the best dish of the evening, with Blais coming in a close second. The three ladies are left to be judged. Carla and Antonia got the harshest criticism, and it was sad to realize that one of them would be leaving. Even sadder to find out that it was Carla.
