Fabio interviews that he thinks dinner is a good idea because everyone is stressed out to some extent. Sonjia is not into it though. She wishes she could have worked during this time instead of going out. I hope she doesn't bring everybody else down. Elena apologizes to Dmitry for being such a bitch to him! I wasn't expecting that. Then, Ven says that, while Elena can be difficult, he has always thought of her as very talented, which she uncomfortably accepts. Dmitry interviews that the wine is working. Ven tells the table that his siblings were much older than him (he's 28! A friend pointed out that she would have thought he was 48. I just want to know what proportion of him is human), so he spent a lot of time playing by himself. This revelation makes Elena feel like she has gotten to know him a lot better. She says that she didn't think of the challenge once during dinner.
The next day, they're back in the workroom. I'm trying to detect any hangovers in the room, but it looks like they all practiced restraint. Lame. However, Christopher notices that a lot of the work in the room is subpar. They seem generic and costume-y. He doesn't think that some of them even look like they are for dancers. Ven says that it's nice to see Elena do something graphic, but her design looks like it's meant for cheerleaders.
Sonjia is still out to sea. Melissa has 18 pattern pieces for her look. Crazy. Fabio thinks that she's insane. Elena puts on her outfit and she and Chris dance around the room like Rockettes. This is part of her efforts to be less stressed out. She points out that the stress has made her skin break out and it's sad but true. I'm surprised she's still allowed on TV. Christopher is gluing shit to his look and Sonjia says that she can't like and his look is popping. Then, she calls him a bitch. Man, she's competitive. Guess you can't blame her. Otherwise, why would she join a competition? I'm glad I worked that out for myself.
Tim comes in to consult and seems incredulous when everyone says that they're doing fine. He approaches Sonjia very seriously tells her that he can read her from across the room. He says that she seems very disabled, which would be horrible to hear. She doesn't know what the neckline is going to look like and Tim says that she's making him very nervous. Dmitry wonders if she's running out of ideas.
