Kate is looking for silk, twills, and leather. Jeremy tells us, of course, that his inspiration is going to be his grandmother. Bradon is having trouble finding anything. And then they're done shopping! Sue spent double the recommended amount, so maybe she'll be the one to actually run out of money. End of shopping! Back to the workroom!
Sandro slouches into the workroom after everybody else. I mention that because the introduction to the episode has made me focus on his every move, watching for the incipient blowup. "Incipient" means "in an initial stage; beginning to happen or develop." I'm not defining it for you; of course you know what it means. I'm defining it for someone else who's reading. (If it's you, that's okay)
Jeremy and Alexander agree that it's nice that their judge is very openly gay. And then Alexander makes sure the workroom knows that Bradon's prediction last night would be that they'd be making wedding outfits for gay couples. Nice job! Sandro seems a little a freaked out. In an interview, he drawls, "You a bruja. You a witch!" Then Bradon says he's been with his partner for eighteen years. I like how they replaced all the product-placed yogurt stuff from last week with gay marriage talk in this episode. Bradon is sad that he can't get married properly. Ah, he lives in Los Angeles. Come up to Seattle, Bradon! Seattle's nice!
Helen asks about this fabric Sandro has. They're not sure what it is, although it's a little stretchy. He's planning to talk back to the judges and ask what it is they want. He's sick of being told that things are "too much." Justin says that Sandro is very disrespectful, which he does not approve of.
Bradon seems to be trying to interweave several ties to make a textile. It's possibly going to be a bodice, but he's not sure. But never mind that, because Tim is here! He goes to Dom first. She says that the phrase "marriage equality" led her to think of an equals sign, which is why there are a bunch of stripes on her clothes. Kind of a stretch. Tim questions her piping, and she immediately takes it off. Then Tim questions her plan to make a jacket, rather than perfecting the dress, and she seems okay with that, too. I approve of people doing whatever Tim Gunn tells them. Karen likes Dom's look a lot.
Next is Sue. She's made two separate dresses, which I guess explains why she spent twice as much as recommended. She has some ties around the dress, and she describes it as an exoskeleton. Miranda more accurately describes it as "a bunch of ties trying to attack a dress." And there's a train of ties. She seems unfocused.
