Ramsay makes Susan and Cyndi step forward and asks them why they should stay. Susan says she has so much passion: "It runs through my blood." Cyndi says she's not ready to give up the black jacket yet, and Ramsay hasn't seen her at her best. She says she's more well-rounded than Susan.
Look, we all know this is part two of three, so let's just get this over with. We watch a little replay of the issues tonight with both chefs and then Ramsay says they leave him no choice: his decision is Susan and Cyndi both keep their black jackets, and sends them back to the line. He tells the team that when they pull off a service like that and almost match a team of former champions, he's not sending anyone home. But the challenges will get harder, he says, and tomorrow night he may eliminate one, two or three chefs. "Chef's going to have to take this jacket off my cold dead body," Susan says. Mary is about to say something, when my Canadian channel switches over to that awful-looking Does Someone Have to Go? show, which fortunately means my dog is spared one last ear-piercing statement, but that's it for me tonight.
Daniel is a writer in Newfoundland with a wife and a daughter. He has started to twitch uncontrollably. Someone had better be eliminated next week. Follow him on Twitter (@DanMacEachern) or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
