Team Diva is making a margarita sorbet, a fennel seed brioche with white truffle butter (as their bread item) and a frozen key lime bar (read: popsicle). Heather is insisting on rolling out all the dough by hand, which despite Martha Stewart's devotion to the method, is apparently inferior to using a pastry rolling machine. Yigit shrugs. As do I. Meanwhile, the Black Team (note: no black people since they kicked Erica off unfairly) is making a ginger ale float with tangerine and raspberry sorbets, a chocolate chip cookie, and a soft pretzel with mustard as their bread. Then: DRAMA. Lemons have gone missing. Morgan thinks Yigit stole them, but Yigit rolls his eyes and tells Morgan to just ask if he needs a lemon. The Great Lemon Incident of '10 sets Morgan off and he goes on a ranty wild tear cursing up a storm and generally making everyone in the kitchen uncomfortable. Time is up for the day and Morgan storms out of the kitchen. Back at the luxury townhouse, Eric and Danielle try to calm him down and it sort of works. Maybe he kicked a Production Assistant or something, but at least he doesn't kill anyone on camera.
The next day Morgan is in a great mood, but everyone else is incredibly stressed out. Team Diva seems way more disorganized and behind the eight ball than the Black Team, but it's probably just editing. And Eric's baked. Suddenly the doors open and Dessert Wars have begun. Black Team has elected Morgan to stay in the kitchen while Danielle plates the desserts, and Eric handles the front of the house meeting and greeting. Team Diva has made the wise choice to lock Bitch Face Heather in the kitchen where she can only be rude to the wait staff. Suddenly the judges have arrived. Gail introduces them to today's revolving door of judges: Johnny Iuzzini, Nancy Silverton of La Brea bakery and par-baked bread fame who is rumored to have lost a bunch of money in the Madoff investment scandal and now has to do things like this, and Hubert Keller who made time in his busy schedule to come back and judge. The judges order one of each item.
As the desserts are being prepared the judges note that Team Diva has simultaneously focused on their decor and not at all, meaning they made little meringue lollipop table decorations but didn't bother filling up their display case making all the little desserts look sad and lonely and unlovable. Then the desserts arrive and the judges stop caring about the decor because, Hey: Doughnuts! Zac has made a doughnut (which they call a donut, but in my book, if it's not Dunkin' it's a doughnut) filled with wild blueberry jam that comes with a lemon verbena milkshake. It looks delicious. We can put a man on the moon, but we can't invent smell o' vision? That's just sad really. Yigit--who is running the front of the house-- also presents a fennel-olive bread with truffle butter on top as well as a caramel corn with bacon in it because bacon makes everything better. Johnny Iuzzini notes that the teams were supposed to make both an "a la minute" dessert as well as a bread. I have no recollection of the "a la minute" portion of the rules, but I was probably passed out from knocking my head in the car door to see if all the watching dough stretching on national television would stop.
