Will's also already lamenting his decision to pick Krupa, who overcooks the fish. "Watching her was like going to the dentist," Jennifer tells us. Paul's team now has the appetizers out, but Jonathan's blowing things on the meat, and he doesn't take kindly to Elise yelling at him. A frustrated Paul stomps over looking like he's ready to crack Jonathon's skull because there are a ton of tickets sitting up at the pass. "Fight back! Don't get mad!" Elise tells Jonathon, who blames his undercooked meat on the fact that there are a lot of thick ones. That's what sh-... never mind. Krupa's still providing comedy relief in Will's kitchen, knocking some sauce onto a grill.
Paul finally just boots Will of meat and sends him over to garnish. "Jonathon sucks! He can't cook, man," says Elise. "Fuck this shit, man," mutters a pissed-off Jonathon, who blames his shitty cooking on either A) Elise in the kitchen; or B) women in the kitchen; or C) other people in general being in the kitchen. "Get the bitches out of the kitchen and let me get back on my game," he says, charmingly. Maybe he's mad because the Hell's Kitchen website spells his name "Jonathan" but the on-screen title spells it "Jonathon"?
Krupa finally gets some fish out to some customers, but it comes back undercooked. Will tells her to reflash it and "hurry the fuck up, please."
Meanwhile, Elise is banging out the meat. "Honestly, my MVP tonight is Elise," Paul tells us. There is a slight flare-up as Elise moves to help Carrie with garnish. Carrie doesn't like it and snips at her, but Elise doesn't take the bait and remains calm. I actually laughed out loud when Elise says in the interview that it was Elise to Carrie's rescue: "Captain Saveaho."
Will FINALLY moves Natalie over to fish and sends Krupa over to dessert, but not soon enough to prevent them from needing to wait another eight minutes for bass because Natalie has to pretty much start from scratch. Meanwhile, Paul is yelling at his team to push through on the final tickets, pumping them up by urging them to prove to Ramsay it was a mistake to cut them. And then Will's team gets things back in gear as the fish finally starts getting out. It looks like both kitchens wrap up around the same time -- Paul's proud that he's the only one in Hell's Kitchen who managed to get Elise and Carrie working together -- and Paul and Will each earn a "well done" from Ramsay and then they hug each other, with Paul and Will each saying they don't think they won.
