The girls chat. Elizabeth votes for Carrie. Jennifer votes for Elise. The Blue Team can't decide whether it's Tommy or Natalie. It's weird to me that Natalie is in so much danger before Paul is.
The come before Chef Ramsay. The Red Team nominates Carrie. The Blue Team nominates Tommy, because of his lack of communication and problems being a server. Carrie says that she has so much more to show, which gets a "Bitch, Please!" look from Jennifer. Ramsay says that she was good during that service. As a server -- and BLT Steak is not looking for a maître d'. Ouch. Tommy says that he doesn't want to give a big speech, rather he wants to impress Chef Ramsay with his cooking. Ramsay says that he doesn't think that Tommy has a big future in Hell's Kitchen, but Carrie is the person going home. She's torn up. I think it's kind of sad. He says that she has a lot of heart and ambition, but she needs more experience. As she walks away, she gets a big hand of applause from the Blue Ream. Jennifer and Elizabeth timidly join, which makes them look like the biggest losers to me. Elise doesn't applaud at all, which, frankly, just makes her look like the biggest jerk.
We see a montage of Carrie/Elise escapades. She says that Elise had it out for her from day one. She has no regrets. She blames herself, though, for losing. Back in the Kitchen, Ramsay says that they need to get it together. Then, he tells Elise to take her jacket off! TO BE CONTINUED!
