Each designer has nine thousand clams to design their collections. Of course, only one of Jay or Mila will get to show at Bryant Park. Tim tells the designers that he's very proud of them. Also, he will be visiting them when they are at home. Emilio, believe it or not, is sure that he will win the whole thing. All of the designers leave each other on ostensibly good terms.
Tim visits Seth Aaron in Washington. While Tim is impressed with his work, he tells him that he won't win because it's the same thing he did during the competition. Seth Aaron was stunned, but he takes it pretty well. Tim asks Seth Aaron's wife how they met -- he was the boy next door. Obviously, right? Oh shit, Seth Aaron bounces the shit out of Tim on his trampoline. I'm not sure what to say about that.
Next, Tim visits Emilio and meets his brothers who are apparently the most important thing to evil Emilio. Tim notices all of the color in Emilio's collection. There's a whole bunch of STUFF. They get heated. Tim tells him that his work is not up to snuff. Emilio interviews that Tim's not a woman and doesn't get it.
Then, Tim goes to visit Mila in Los Angeles. She tells him that shadows are her inspiration. Tim notes that it's black and white but still likes it. She says Jay's a little shit and annoying and doesn't want to lose to him. We see pictures from Mila's past -- she hasn't changed. And, her boyfriend is a gay man.
Lastly, Tim visits Jay in San Francisco. Jay says that he's inspired by Japanese Samurai. Tim is apprehensive about some of it, but loves some of it too. Jay says he doesn't have to worry about Mila. He cries in an interview about wanting to give back to his parents.
Back in New York, the designers meet in a hotel suite. Jay's a bit of a bitch about sharing a room with Mila. Seth Aaron and Emilio arrive and are very confident. The next day, Tim tells Mila and Jay that they have to show their three strongest looks -- that day. Tears. All of their stuff looks pretty good. Mila is in! I am stunned.
Previously: The designers had their final challenge. They were to create circus-inspired runway looks. Seth Aaron and Emilio got through to Fashion Week. Anthony got the boot. Jay and Mila have to create collections, then compete for the final Fashion Week spot.
Here we are! We've made it to Shangri-La. Oh Bryant Park, hold these designers to your bosom. They are weary and in need of gift bags. We don't get an early morning windowsill pondering for this episode. It starts at the runway. Heidi enters and congratulates the four designers for making it to Fashion Week. Seth Aaron stands and does some hip-thrusting action in Jay's face in the spirit of celebration. She tells them that they will be sent home with nine thousand dollars and they will have four months to work on their collections. She reminds Mila and Jay that they will both be creating collections, but only one of them will be showing at Fashion Week. They will have to show three looks from their collections for judging. That sounds like a long way to go to be told no, but I'm sure they would still be able to have someone look at their collection, right? The person that doesn't make it, that is.
Then, Heidi welcomes Tim to the stage. The designers applaud. They really make the designers clap a lot. Anyway, Tim tells the designers that he is exceptionally proud of each of them. "Look where you are?" he exclaims with arms extended in first position, his hands telling us exactly how proud he is. He tells them that he will be visiting each of them as they are working on their collections. Heidi tells them that she wishes them luck and can't wait to see them at Fashion Week. Then, she and Tim escort each other behind the scrim, where they do a little booty bump. Heidi is really pregnant.
At the Atlas building, as she is packing, Mila says that she and Jay both of strong points-of-view, but hers is better. She smiles and says that she has to make sure that she beats Jay. As he's packing, we hear Jay says that his mind is boggled that he has made it this far. Then, Seth Aaron comes in, play tackles him and locks him in a place he hasn't been for a while, the closet. That joke makes me sound like Joan Rivers. Hack much? Why, yes, I do. As Jay steps out of the closet (cannot stop), he interviews that he knows he has what it takes to beat Mila and win the competition.
