Back at the workroom, they quickly get to business. They start unpacking everything that they have. Elena discovers that they are missing a bag. How does that happen? The wool that Elena cut for her jacket is missing. She interviews that she is so shocked that she doesn't know what she's going to do. She doesn't even freak out, which is appreciated. Well, yet. Melissa proposes that she use a different fabric that they have. She'll have to revise her design, but she keeps her cool though she interviews that she's very stressed out.
They're having a really hard time with Raul. Melissa proposes an idea to try to at least integrate his designs with the rest of the team but he really sticks to his guns in terms of "being true" to himself as a designer. Again, he doesn't even seem to have his head in the right place. Dmitry says that Raul worries about being eliminated before a challenge even begins. Fabio says that he's glad that his team is not the "fucking mess" that is happening on Team 6.
Nathan says that there is more pressure for this challenge because it's for Nina. Oh! Christopher finds a GIANT comb underneath one of the work tables. It was Kooan's! He puts it on a table and says, "That's sad." It's so crazy. I find Christopher so sinister now. Elena is starting to flip out. Having to redesign her look and she is acting crazy. She leaves the workroom for something and Christopher says that he feels like she just escaped from the woods. "She is an animal right now."
Gunnar is having problems with his design. He feels like he is being bossed around and treated like a tailor and he doesn't "do that shit." Mostly, I think he's upset because his design isn't working. His muslin mock-up is not making his teammates happy. Raul is working his top with muslin and says that it represents who he is as a designer 100%. He does acknowledge that he has a lot of stuff running through his head. Elena and Sonjia both critique his look and he interviews that they are difficult because they won't listen to him. Elena interviews that he has a bad work ethic because he is only concerned about his own aesthetic.
Elena is still having problems with her own design. She hates the fabric and the colors. She won't stop cursing. It's horrible. Tim comes in and asks how they are doing. He gets a wan greeting in return and he remarks that it was "lackluster." When Raul presents his top, which has ribbing along the bib, to Tim, it is greeted with really ominous music. This is a haunted top. Gunnar says that the ribs look like fish fins and he does not approve. Tim says that he likes the volume of the top and the sleekness of the skirt it is matched with, so Raul feels like he is moving in the correct direction. Elena is complaining that her design is boring and matronly, but Tim tells her that he doesn't see any of those things. She agrees to stick with the design. Tim says that he's pleasantly surprised by their progress, because he anticipated walking into a "hot mess."
