Laura describes for Tim her horror at hearing that Angela was making her "granny circles." But she says that they all liked them as buttons. Tim says that they "work." Angela jokes that she can't believe that Laura doubted her. She interviews that Tim had nothing negative to say about the outfit. I think he is as surprised as we are. Angela says, "I led him to the light." She laughs, but I'm not sure she gets the joke as well as we do.
When Tim makes his way to Bonnie's group, the death gong music alerts us immediately to the fact that there is trouble. Bradley explains that the pants that he made suddenly have "issues." The shape is weird. Uli interviews that the pants were flawed in the design (Bonnie), not the production (Bradley). She feels fine because she is immune.
Keith and Alison explain to Tim that they had talked with Keith about every step of the design, so they are familiar with it. Tim is impressed with the product, as well as how much progress they've made. Alison interviews that she wants to make the design as beautiful as Keith's original idea. I think she has a soft spot for Keith. I can appreciate that. It almost makes me like him a little bit that someone as sweet as Alison appreciates him. "Almost" being the operative word.
That night, a lot of the designers are sitting around one of the apartments. Kayne of Many Colors interviews that, though Keith broke the rules, his departure is sad. Uli wonders what he's doing -- and here is where we realize that we didn't see the side of Keith that they saw. I mean, he still sounds like a dick. Just different. The ideas about what Keith is doing include "partying," "having fun," "calling people on his phone," and "naked." I'm maybe a little sorry that we didn't see that side of Keith. Wouldn't a nudist fashion designer be a funny addition to the show?
Jeffrey interviews that he is very proud of the work he and Alison did. He thinks they might have a chance at winning the challenge.
The next day, at Parsons, Tim tells everyone that they have two hours to get their models dressed and made up. Okay, Angela mugs for the camera. I want you to start counting how many times you see her start to smile. She smiles every time the camera is on her. And she wasn't smiling before the camera was focused on her. This must end.
When Robert's team dresses their model, it becomes clear that their skirt has problems. The slit in the back is really high. There's about to be some hoo-hoo in the house. They tack it, but it still opens a lot.
