Then it's Marshea's turn, in his first dance since the car accident and coma six weeks earlier. SIX. WEEKS. (For the record, when he walks on stage Jonathan is walking off, and I suspect he actually danced first and we are being hopelessly manipulated by the producers. Count me as 100% manipulated and 100% fine with it.) Marshea's dance is just pure joy and Mary holds up a ticket to Vegas without even saying anything else. He is winded and about to fall over, but delighted and thankful and awesome.
Finally, we have thirty seconds or so left for the choreography round. David ultimately excuses himself, admitting that the choreography is amazing but a totally different style from what he does and he can't keep up with it so he takes his wheel and rolls home. Unsurprisingly, Jonathan can't keep up either. He, Caley, and the adorable Johnny Waaks are all sent home. But it's a happy ending for Sam, who gets her ticket along with 20 other screaming, jumping dancers.
