Meanwhile, Dana nails her next attempt at halibut, kicking off a good run for Red. Justin's not even waiting for Ramsay to send stuff back for Blue. It's going back for being undercooked, overcooked, too salty, not free-range, anti-choice and a fan of Dane Cook.
Red's on their last ticket, and Christina's hoping they can finish strong on the last ticket. Then Dana serves up some undercooked pork on the last ticket, and Ramsay gives her the choice of sending it out as is or delaying the last order a few more minutes. It's not really a choice, and Christina makes the correct decision to pull it back and start over.
Similarly, in Blue, Barbie screws up the ribeye on the last order. "I'm literally watching my dreams sink right now," Justin tells us. That sounds kinda cool, actually! Then he brings back her next batch, but now there's a problem -- she doesn't have enough to finish the order. Barbie's contrite in an interview, saying she really wants to help Justin win. James confers with the table and gets the OK to send out filets instead, so Blue gets back to work, with Ramsay urging Justin and Christina to get their last orders out just like their first orders. They do, and service wraps up with hugs and backslaps and hugs in both kitchens.
In the debrief, Ramsay calls it an amazing service, and so he's decided to do away with the two-door thing, because he's ready to decide a winner there and then, and announces "Tavon!" much to everyone's amusement. I picture poor Tavon sitting at home, watching this. A single tear rolls down his cheek. His eliminated-in-Week-1 cheek. When the laughter subsides, Ramsay tells Justin and Christina to head to the dorms and await his call, and then he dismisses the other chefs.
A very nervous Justin and Christina head back to the dorms to wait, while Ramsay sorts through the customer comment cards and watches a fuzzy-bordered montage of Justin's and Christina's greatest hits, including, somewhat amusingly, scenes from about five minutes ago.
The phone rings in the dorms, and Justin answers it. It's Ramsay, summoning the two of them to his office, where he tells them they were both amazing leaders tonight. He tells Christina he doesn't think he's ever met a more passionate chef, while Justin possesses an extraordinary palate, and he doesn't doubt they'll both be very successful in their careers. That said, he has made a decision, and he tells them both to step up to the doors.
