Bob goes to Miggy and Migdalia's room and asks what the hell happened. A crying Migdalia says that she's done. She doesn't need anyone to tell her that she's a bad mother or fucked up in her head. Bob tells her that she's not done, she's upset. He has to get her head back on straight, because she hasn't learned anything yet and needs to be at the ranch. He asks her to cool off and trust him, because he cares about her. Migdalia agrees not to quit. Miggy tells Bob that coming to the ranch was about changing their ways, not their personalities. They appreciate everything that the trainers are doing for them, but she says trying to change who they are is a totally different thing. Wow, these two are real joys. Bob takes mild offense to all of this, but in the end simply says that he's there to help them. He then requests that they hug it out. Nice job of sealing the deal, there, Bob. You know, I will admit that it's kind of nice to see someone not fall for the Dr. Phillianizing right away. This probably means that they'll be gone by the end of the episode, though, since emotional breakthroughs burn a ton of calories. Or after another commercial break they'll realize that Jillian is right.
Next, we head back to Houston with the exiled Blue Team. They are, in fact, heading to the gym for Cherita's first spin class. She manages not to collapse on her bike's handlebars. Victory! In Minneapolis, O'Neal takes a walk with his wife, Sarah. Sarah tearfully notes that O'Neal's mom died of a stroke when she was 62, which is only ten years older than O'Neal is now. She doesn't want him to die of a stroke anytime soon. A single tear trickles out from beneath O'Neal's super-cool sunglasses. He tells us that you can't go forward looking in the rear view mirror. All of this is to say that he's committed to getting healthy.
And then it's time for the teacher-student workouts. Stephanie and John work out in the pool. I detect a bit of splashy flirting! Sherry wants to make sure that she's giving Ashley solid information, and they're both feeling pressure. Andrea pushes Darrell hard, and he's a good student. She's proud of his tenacity and determination, though he kind of looks like he might die after ten minutes on the ladder.
Several of the contestants, including John, head to the trainer's room to check in with medic Sandy Krum. It's actually kind of interesting to see this behind-the-scenes look at their everyday maintenance. John explains that all of this working out is hard on the knees. And then -- oh, fuck you, Biggest Loser. This is totally a product placement for: a) Walgreen's; b) some sort of ice thing for your knee that you buy at Walgreen's. Any Walgreen's! Seriously, they got me this time. Normally I can smell those product placements from 100 feet away, like a Subway BMT.
