Caroline and Jennifer are just now finding the Beacon of Hope sculpture (or rather, Caroline is), and they're the only team to opt for "Spray It," which could be their last hope. I mean, I can't imagine them cracking the menu code all that quickly. Now to find the Detour.
Bates is delivering the fifth course while Anthony watches, hoping he got it right this time. Mona and Beth still don't get it, and don't get why, but their headwaiter is still keeping it consistent with his "This is not what these people ordered." Unfortunately, after dropping off a batch of dessert plates, Bates also hears, "This is not what they ordered," causing him to throw his hands in the air and wonder, "What is wrong with him?" He starts loading the plates back up, grumbling, "Oh my God, I'm gonna kill him." Rather unprofessional behavior for a fine-dining server, if you ask me. "Single-handedly losing this for us." Running back with the full plate, he barks up at Anthony, "It's wrong!" Anthony wonders aloud what color chartreuse is (see?), and remarks that there's no stopping Bates's current meltdown unless he gets it right. Bates hands him back the tray with a theatrical flourish of frustration. I think this is the first time we've seen them not getting along, and it gives me a scary feeling in my tummy.
Katie brings Max her second attempt at the dessert order, saying, "If this isn't it, then I don't know and we gotta switch again." At least she has a backup plan. While waiting for Anthony to return, Bates picks up one of the plates his brother dropped on the ground earlier and spins it on one finger to show why he's got the serving skills. "So you know it's not me." He finds a few more ways to express his frustration to us until Anthony returns with a fresh tray, saying, "These puddings are different." Bates doesn't seem filled with confidence. Meanwhile, Max and Katie have gotten the dessert course right, so the captain reaches into his jacket and hands over Max's next clue. Maybe the captain should be steering?
Next, Bates is delivering plates of dessert that include red jelly as we hear Anthony fretting in VO that he really hopes chartreuse means red and not the green he's seeing on some of the plates. "Bates is gonna kill me if he comes back with another full tray." And guess what Bates says when the headwaiter again tells him, "This is not what they ordered"? "I'm gonna kill him." So at least they're in agreement. Loading the plates back up, he bitches, "Worst partner ever. There is something wrong with him." And he runs back out into the dry dock, bellowing up, "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?" The diners are getting the full high-class experience, at least.
