The judges confer. They loved Anya's black dress. Nina thinks that she has great taste. They think that Viktor's work has evolved and has become increasingly commercial. Heidi didn't like Josh's fabrics. Michael thinks that it would be great with editing and Nina agrees. She thinks his taste is questionable. Better to have too many ideas though. Nina and Michael did not like Laura's gown. Heidi loves her passion though. Zoe thinks that Kimberly tried to do something different. They review Kimberly's work over the season. They wonder why she didn't make more pants. Michael thinks she has glamour. Will they choose four or three designers for the finals?
The designers return to the stage. Only three will compete at Fashion Week. Anya is the first in! Poo poo face from Josh. She interviews that she has to remind herself to breathe. Heidi says they liked Viktor, but he needs to pump up the volume. He's in! Heidi says that they appreciated Josh's attempts at editing, but he needs to work more. He interviews, and I am not lying, that this is the beginning of his history. His legacy. Someday, someone will be able to research this moment for him. I don't even know what to say. I mean, I guess we all have to walk around like we're the most important person in the world or we'll just jump in front of a bus or something. I don't know. But, Jesus, shut the fuck up about it. Anya hugs him backstage.
It's down to Laura and Kimberly and apparently one of them is coming to Fashion Week? Laura is... out. Poor thing. Kimberly will be designing and returning to NY. I'm not sure what that means exactly. She goes backstage and really breaks down. She says that she has always had a dream that was bigger than herself. Heidi tells Laura that she's a great designer and a great person. She interviews that she saw herself in the top three. Tim comes in and says that he hopes she's proud of herself. He sends her to the workroom and she thanks him for everything. She says that she feels grateful for the experience. She thinks she's a stronger designer now.
Tim leads the final four in a group hug and kiss!
