What do the pros think about the competition? Cheryl is impressed with how Ralph moves, given his age. Other pros feel the same way about Kirstie. Anna can't believe that Chelsea can keep up with Mark's choreography. Karina likes Romeo's swagger. Wendy and Sugar Ray are stronger on performance than technique. Well, Wendy's not strong with either, really. Chelsie is impressed with how much fun Hines is having. So they all agree that the field is close. I learned nothing from that segment. Thanks, producers.
OneRepublic is back to sing that one song that's not "Apologize" [It's fittingly "All the Right Moves." - Zach] and the troupe is out to perform. I'm surprised that they only let the troupe do one song. I thought I was supposed to get to know each of them personally. How can I do that when they're only on for one segment?
Moving on to hear more about Chris, Kirstie and Ralph. Chris danced for his mom and it was actually touching, especially since I think he was the first one to trot out the parent story. Ralph, whatever. It was what it was. We get to hear Maks and Kirstie's audio during their fall; this is what Brooke was trying to show them earlier when they wouldn't talk to her. Right when Maks falls, Kirstie asks if he's okay and what happened, and then he holds up a finger like "wait one" and they continue. At the end of the dance, Kirstie assumes it was her fault and asks what she did wrong. I thought Kirstie was mad about her scores, but on rewatch, it's possible that she was shocked they were so high after they fell. In the confessional, Maks assures Kirstie that it wasn't her fault, and then they cackle that Maks pulled her down because he wasn't going to fall by himself. Ralph and Karina are safe, as are Kirstie and Maks. Chris and Cheryl are in jeopardy.
Okay, so three couples are in jeopardy: Wendy and Tony, Kendra and Louis, and Chris and Cheryl. WE don't have to wait long to hear that Kendra and Louis are safe. Kendra is deadpan. She totally has bitchface. Tom emphasizes that Wendy and Chris are not necessarily the bottom two, and then we have to hear what Len thinks. He thinks that Wendy overcame her fears and came back strong after a bad first week. Len was surprised at Chris's improvement over the first episode. I am going to be pissed if Chris goes home ahead of Wendy, but I feel like they would have been teasing it as a shocking elimination if that were the case. Right? I'm just going to keep typing until Tom tells us who's going home. And...it's Wendy and Tony. Well, that's right. I mean, who was worse? No one.
