The models come in for their fittings. Richard and Patricia are in trouble. First of all, Patricia won't stop calling Richard "Daniel." Awkward. I mean, I've probably done it in these very recaps, but she's seeing him in the flesh. Shame on her. Richard feels that he made a huge error letting Patricia lead the way in the challenge, which sort of sounds like what Tim was saying about him blaming her. Stanley feels like he and Michelle have both designed winners. Michelle also likes what they have done, but she is worried that Nina might not like what she has designed. She imagines, with accent, Nina saying, "Michelle, no woman would ever want to wear such a depressing print." To be perfectly honest, post-Santino Rice, everyone's impressions of the judges feels like a product of a local sketch comedy class. Yes, you studied with the Groundlings. Congrats. No, your impression does not transcend. Jesus, why have these people made me so HATEFUL?
Layana is feeling more confident about her design. Meanwhile, Daniel is really happy with his look as well as very encouraging to Miss Horrible. That means Layana. Once the models are gone, they start working again. Stanley and Michelle start painting their art piece. Stanley says the most brilliant thing: The criteria for the art piece is that it should not be able to fit into a cab. I get it. Richard is really letting Patricia down. He apparently doesn't know how to add a hidden zipper, because he's always working with jersey. That's pretty lame. She interviews that she has been making her own textiles for years and if she gets eliminated during the challenge dedicated to textiles she will lose her mind. Well, I hope that doesn't happen. Of course, Michelle pipes in via interview about how Patricia is really having a hard time with Richard and she's glad he's not her partner. Has she really come back from the place where she was talking total shit about Patricia all of the time? Maybe I've forgotten that. Seriously. If it happened, I've forgotten and I still blame her.
The next morning, Michelle offers Patricia the sage advice that she should just worry about her own stuff. I mean, please, READERS, we're not going to forget about the stuff that Michelle said about Patricia, are we? I feel like I'm losing my mind right now. It's obvious that Michelle is probably going to make it to the finals and these guys have been very inconsistent about reunion shows, so I can't count on that as a moment where she will have to answer for herself. Can we all come together though and, even if you really love what she makes, acknowledge that Michelle is a straight-up trifling Chico's BITCH? That merkin-like necklace alone is enough to make her a figure of ridicule. I love Def Leppard too, that freaking monstrosity had nothing to do with hair bands. Sebastian Bach would wear Amanda's tear-away pants before he would wear that necklace. So would Emmy Rossum.
