Rock returns with the bag of trash from the shoot and just starts smashing the bottles into the pile. Okay, it sounds like he's smashing the bottles but we don't actually see them post-smashment. He's pissed and he's not talking. He's gone somewhere very dark. And there's that squishy-loud Roast Beef Slice of Violence taking us into commercial.
Rock seems to have zenned himself out before they have to prep for that night's service. He tells us calmly that he was pissed earlier but he's back to being a leader for his team. During prep, Melissa goes out of her way to be helpful to the Blues, and the Reds believe they are doing just fine with one less cook. Five minutes before service, Ramsay tells the teams that Bonnie's grilled lobster salad is going on the menu. Furthermore, because the Blues lost, it is their responsibility to supply both teams with live lobster when the order comes up. Josh volunteers to be the "lobster bitch."
Service begins, and Rock tells Melissa to "lean on the team." However, she's not to blame when the Blue team gets behind with a big pot of non-boiling water and spaghetti appetizer orders to fill. The Reds get a head start and have no problems getting their appetizers out, and even seem to be hitting the ground running with their first entrees. However, even when you're doing well, Ramsay needs to yell at you. For doing well. Basically, he berates them that they better not fuck it up. Brad gives Ramsay one too many appetizers, and then Melissa screws up the scallops, and both of them incur Ramsay's ire. Sadly, Bonnie, excited that her team is on fire, does in fact set them on fire. Her station flares up and she has no idea what to do with it. She pulls the flaming pan and puts it on the floor, where it seems to get extinguished, because by the time Ramsay stomps over to lecture her on proper fire safety, the fire's out. Back in the Blue kitchen, Josh has turned his unsalted mashed potatoes into cake batter and is pouring them on the plate. Ramsay can't handle it and starts kicking bins angstily. The Reds' entrees keep going out with both Mary Anne's and Ramsay's compliments, so of course, Ramsay threatens, "I swear if anyone screws this, you've only got yourselves to blame." Melissa's overcooked risotto earns a hissed "This is your worst service ever!" for Brad from Ramsay. Melissa overcooks monkfish, so Ramsay goes around to every Blue team member and says, "She doesn't know that's overcooked? She doesn't know that's overcooked!" Ramsay switches Rock onto fish and exiles Melissa to garnish.
