Red team. Nilka had a problem with the grilled asparagus (the marks weren't coming out right) so she decided to cook them some other way instead. Steamed, I assume. Chef Ramsay compares this to cafeteria food. Then over on the blue side, Chef Ramsay hates Jason's bacon, which flusters him for a few key seconds while everyone's waiting for the puree for the pork.
Fran is enraged by her entire team and claims that no one told her to have beef ready in one minute. She's mad at Holli for reminding her, she's mad at her team for not talking, and she's mad at anyone who talks to her. And the beef gets rejected when it does get to the pass. Autumn needs three minutes on some meat and Chef Ramsay accuses her of being too casual. Ed swaps in for the meat station while Autumn runs off to the dessert station. Fran has some more undercooked beef, and Chef Ramsay walks into the pantry calling for her to follow her.
Fran and Chef Ramsay have a little heart-to-heart in the pantry. Fran claims that the problem is that no one will talk to her. They'll talk to each other, but not her. Chef Ramsay does not care about all of that: "But what's wrong with you?" He shows her all the raw chicken she's been bringing up. He accuses her of giving up, which she denies. Although she totally should give up at this point.
The red team's desserts go great and we're reminded that Holli had a good night. Both teams finish service.
Both teams are declared the loser, because Gordon Ramsay has his own weird idea of competition. They are each supposed to select one nominee, so you'd think it would be Fran and Autumn, with Fran going home, right? Let's find out!
The blue team piles on Autumn, who thinks Jason did worse than her. Ed thinks Jason isn't as good as he thinks he is. On the red team, Fran complains about the team's communication, and Nilka has had enough. "How much communication do you need? Do you want me to put something up to your ear and say 'Fran, this is the goddamn order!'?" Nilka feels that Fran's problem is not communication but execution. Nilka starts complaining about not being involved in the menu, which was mostly Benjamin's deal.
