Ramsay brings the smoked salmon appetizers back to bitch about the shitty blinis, and Barbie gives them a whirl. She makes them perfectly -- is not shy to say so either -- further angering Tiffany, who really seems to hate having her awful skills shown up by someone who gives a shit.
In Blue, Justin, Clemenza and Brian are doing well on their appetizers, and roll on to entrees. It's Steak Night, and Patrick points out that since the prize is a position at Ramsay's steak place, now's the time to push harder, go past the max, reach over the top, etc. Then he blows the ribeye, which is practically boiled, not seared. Patrick has to fire some more.
In Red, Kimmie's on meat and Robyn's on the grill, so this can only go well. "Robyn is acting crazy as fuck right," says Kimmie. She figures Robyn is still holding a grudge from the high steaks challenge. And their first attempt is brought back by Ramsay because it's so badly done.
An hour and a half into Steak Night, and Red's first entrée is terrible. Well, it's the Robyn portion that sucks. It looks like it was sliced with a spoon, says Ramsay. Meanwhile, Kimmie's filet is perfect. This doesn't go over too well with Robyn, you might well imagine. They both get back to work.
Patrick's second attempt -- "I know I have it in me! I know I'm a special chef!" he tells us -- is much better, earning kudos from Ramsay. That lasts all of about five seconds, because then, following some distraction from Royce who doesn't yell out the next order, Patrick is confused over how much meat he's supposed to fire, and a pissed-off Ramsay boots him out to get some fresh air. He goes over and stews for a moment, then goes back and asks for -- and is granted -- permission to come back, from an angry Ramsay.
Likewise, Kimmie and Robyn's second attempt goes over much better. Ramsay still needs them to pick up the pace, leading to some confusion between Robyn and Kimmie with Christina (who's on garnish). When it eventually gets up there, Robyn lies about how long ago she cooked it, but Ramsay isn't fooled, because the fish has more wrinkles in it than he does. Try again, Robyn! It gets less and less easy for her to call attention to how much everyone else sucks when she can't seem to cook anything. In the dining room, the kids seem to be enjoying Ramsay yelling at everybody.
In Blue, Ramsay's all over Patrick, but Brian concedes that he thinks it's because Ramsay sees a lot of potential in Patrick. Potential food poisoning, maybe. The last steak Patrick brings up is practically raw. There's gonna be trouble!
