The designers return to the stage and all hug each other before taking their positions in front of the firing squad. Four of them will be creating collections, but only three of them will be competing at Fashion Week. Other Michael is through to Fashion Week. No smile from Gretchen. At least, that's what they chose to show us. We see her smiling as he leaves the stage. Mondo is through too. He interviews that he couldn't be happier. He tearfully hugs Other Michael backstage and tells him that he's proud of him. Andy is through, though Heidi tells him to lay off the warrior woman. It's down to April and Gretchen. Gretchen is in. She goes backstage and hugs Other Michael. She tells the guys that she's glad that she got the second chance that they all got. Huh? Love it.
April weeps in her interview that she's surprised that they wouldn't give her a chance. This is sad. I love April. Tim comes in and she says that she is so happy to see him. Tim tells her that she should be very proud of herself and this is just the threshold of her career. She says that she won't look back and will be OK.
Tim tells the living designers that they are all competing for three spaces.
