Back at the workroom, Merlin is nervous. He has never seen Mean Girls and generally just does not get what he should do. He is afraid that the judges are going to make fun of his design. He asks James-Paul what he's doing and thinks he says "Creepy" instead of "Preppy." Heh. James-Paul says that he's going to keep this simple so that he doesn't get in trouble. He tells us that he moved to LA from London and no one understood his love of fashion. He got picked on a lot and hopes that this show explains to people why he wanted to do what he does. He's kinda tearful. Move on James-Paul. You're doing just fine and you've got twice as many first names as all of those bullies.
Angel is basing her design on a hip-hop girl who she knows. Johnny's all disgusted that she doesn't know what a B-girl is. She's going to make a skinny pant and a big vest. Reco's almost done a short way into the challenge. The models come in for a fitting and he explains that he's going for a Romeo & Juliet feel for his dress. Daniella's pants don't fit her model. She interviews that she only associates dirtiness with the aesthetic of an environmentalist. She's not sure what to do with the top. At the end of the day, Merlin seems really frustrated.
For some reason, these poor bastards have to wake up at 4 AM. Angel has only had two hours of sleep. She doesn't seem like the kind of girl who would be up all night for no reason. What's going on? Johnny greets Haven, Daniella, and Anna with, "Good Morning, Angels!" They respond, "Good Morning, Charlie!" At the workroom, they have four hours before the show.
Kelly and Isaac enter and talk to Merlin first. They act like Mean Girls. They offer no real advice, but make him doubt every decision he has made. He interviews, crying, that he's very frustrated and doesn't know if his work is right or wrong. They leave him without offering anything other than soul crushing indecision. Isaac asks Reco if his strapless, Empire waisted dress will stay up. He assures them that it will, explaining that it's anchored at the bust. They are not into Johnny's idea, which I have to say actually looks better than I'd imagined. Kelly decides that Johnny must not have gone to any football games. Tell that to his mother, who had to have his band uniform dry cleaned every two weeks. Johnny on the bells. Haven explains that she's trying to create a more refined version of the hoodie and baggy jeans favored by skaters. She interviews that she would be surprised is she were in the bottom, given some of the other garments being made. We see a shot of Reco working on his outfit. Angel's in trouble. Her stuff doesn't look good. And, she said something about skinny pants, but her pants are skinny. This may be goodbye. Anna is worried about her. She says that the B-girls who she went to school with would never wear what Anna had designed.
