The designers have their hair and make-up consultations and Anya tells them that she wants to heed the judges advice about being easier, less "done." Viktor asks for rock and roll. Kimberly asks for a softening of her original styling, though Tim told her earlier that he loved it (even though the judges hated it). Josh got an A for styling earlier, so he just wants a repeat.
They all are working like mad. Josh shows Kimberly some shorts that he's making with these ties that go up the leg, revealing the upper thigh. What? Kimberly laughs. Viktor interviews that Josh is going crazy. Josh talks to Viktor about an idea for a new piece (this time a jacket) and Viktor asks him if he has finished all of the other pieces in his collection. He hasn't. Viktor gently suggests that he finish those pieces, because right to it seems like he's scattering his energy. Josh interviews that failure doesn't seem like an option for him at this point. He's frustrated that he still has work to finish two days before the show. Anya finds him crying in a room and asks him what's wrong. Poor guy is in the fucking bell jar. It's all so close and he wants it badly. He says that he doesn't even have a job after this. Anya just listens to him and rubs his back as he cries. OK, first of all, just want to say that I really feel for Josh right now. The line between abject poverty and everything you want is so fucking fine in the creative world. And as fulfilling as it is to make things and feel and express yourself... I don't know, sometimes it sounds really great to maybe not have to serve drinks to bankers or act like you really love restaurants to employers. Everybody wants a quality of life. Josh is crying because he doesn't want to be poor. Now though, I'd like to point out that Anya has acted with this kind of generosity towards him on more than one occasion. And, he continues to speak about her as if her talents are negligible and she made it onto this show by being pretty. So, how does someone accept comfort from someone like that? I'm guessing he just feels entitled to comfort, I don't know though. Anya tells him that he's exhausted and his collection is amazing. She says that she feels the same way. He's not a quitter. He says that crying isn't an option and if he's tired, he should take a nap. Anya laughs because that's a callback to when he said that to Becky. Anya says that she has done her best and she knows he has too. Then, she hugs him. It is incredibly unfair that Anya is not my sister.
