The judges deliberate. While they are doing that, Reco tells Johnny that the dresses looked identical. He points out that Johnny bragged about ripping off Dolce Vita. Daniella points out that Johnny was just trying to make it through this challenge and is not really an evening wear designer. Reco persists. Johnny then tries to blame Angel! He said that she should have told him that he was knocking off Lanvin. That's crazy. Now, everyone looks at him like he's an idiot. He says that he feels "deceived." He's a joke. Reco interviews that Johnny is lying, because he heard him joke about knocking off clothes before. Backstage, Isaac says that they need to think of who should be allowed to design an entire collection. Glenda says they committed the two greatest sins of fashion -- an ugly dress and a knockoff. She mentions that you need to have integrity as a designer. Kelly really feels that point. She thinks that Johnny knew what he was doing. Isaac thinks that there is no worse sin than an ugly dress. Fern says that the gold detail on James-Paul's dress made it look Renaissance Faire. They've made a decision.
Onstage, James-Paul and Johnny wait for the verdict. Johnny...they're not buying it! Isaac tells him that the show is about originality, not plagiarism. He hugs everyone and leaves. Kelly congratulates James-Paul. Johnny interviews that this sucks. He insists that he wasn't creating a knockoff. He's done. Kelly tells the designers that they will be going home to work on their final collections. When they return, they will showcase 10 designs for all of America. Then, we will vote! Anna interviews that she's so excited to do her collection. James-Paul says he's going to marvel the world. Daniella thinks she deserves this. Reco says his world is about to change. They all hug each other onstage.
