The models come in for fittings and Casanova's model, Sarae, goes to find him. He's in the middle of a tearful phone convo with his Aunt Lucy when he arrives. She asks him how he's doing and she tells him that he shouldn't let other people's words get to him. He has to make what he thinks is beautiful. This works for him. He thinks that maybe he's being too sensitive and gets back to work.
Meanwhile, A.J. doesn't have anything for his girl to try on. Gretchen is disappointed that he and Other Michael are so fucking stupid. Man, this girl is a piece of work. Even though she's right, the boldness in which she states her righteousness is just off-putting in the extreme. Casanova, who seems much lighter now, wonders aloud if maybe he's too old-fashioned for this show. Maybe he can only work with sluts? This gets a big laugh from April. He says that he needs to make it work and it looks like it's starting to happen. Gretchen, however, is spazzing by the time the day is over.
The next morning, April tells Peach that she feels like their team is in a good position because they are all so creative, while the other team is all Gretchen. Cut to: Gretchen telling Ivy that she woke up at 4 AM tossing and turning and made a LIST of everything they needed to accomplish. What did I tell you? Like people don't know what they need to finish, right? It's clothing. It's pretty clear when you are not wearing it. But, here's Gretchen with her list of redundancy. THAT'S gonna save the day. That said, the team feels fairly refreshed by the list. Maybe because their spirits have all been crushed and they are no longer capable of thinking for themselves.
Team M&L seems super chill and confident, while Luxe is scrambling. Gretchen screams at Other Michael about not being able to understand some construction stuff she's talking about. Jesus, no one learns that way. OK, so their whole team really goes crazy, especially Ivy. She's running all around and totally shows her underwear when she tries to get something off of a table. Valerie is visibly disgusted. She says that their team is totally "cray cray" and she's glad she's not working with them. April thinks it's a "clusterfuck mess" and I agree with her.
