At the Top Chef (Just Desserts, so don't expect vegetables) kitchen, the chefs get a surprise: All their former competitors are there. How unexpected! Morgan threatens bodily harm to Zac if he is forced to work with him, but instead he gets Bitch Face Heather. He's not happy and neither is she. Yigit gets someone whose name I don't remember (Tim), but he shouted "Team San Francisco!" So I guess he likes trolley cars and Rice-A-Roni, too. Danielle gets Tania who got kicked off too early for me to remember. Interestingly, Malika is there. Hard to tell whether she came back or whether THEY NEVER LET HER LEAVE. She's not crying, yet. Gail tells the ones not chosen that they will be joining the judges on the receiving end of the pastries. Morgan and Heather immediately start bitching about each other and Heather reminds the world at large that she swore she would never be on Team Morgan again after that challenge where she did all the work.
Everyone is working frantically. Yigit is frantic about lemongrass sorbet and Morgan is freaked out about the sugar that Bitch Face Heather put in the soufflé mold. Danielle is worried that her desserts are too sweet. Yigit notices that Morgan is struggling with his yogurt caviar and he doesn't understand why he wouldn't ask Heather for help. Hmm...because he's stubborn and misogynistic? Just guessing. Morgan is impressed with the looks of his competitors' food, but thinks he took more risks. He is pretty confident that will take him the extra distance to the winner's circle. But Morgan, the producers have a lot of say in the outcome and no one wants a dick to win because then the fans turn against them. Outside, the panel of pastry chefs and food experts sit at the table. Claudia Fleming admits she hated Morgan and calls him a "typical male pastry chef" and not in a good way. The ex-Top Chef contestants are isolated at their own table, but are dulling the pain with liquor. Suddenly time is up and the remaining competitors file into the dining area and start to present their food.
Yigit starts. He wants us to dance across his palate. Okay, buddy, if you're into that stuff. His first dish is a cucumber lime sorbet with Straus yogurt caviar pearls. Straus yogurt you say? Fine, I'll Google: Ah, it's a brand name. A family farm whose search ranking just skyrocketed and they will be very confused as to why. Morgan introduces his passion fruit cannoli with mango carpaccio, fluid gel, and tarragon jelly. Eh? It's all words I know, but I don't recognize them strung together like that. Danielle made a hazelnut cake with Spanish goat cheese and fig jam. Johnny Iuzzini likes Morgan's dish, but Daily Candy Dannielle thinks Yigit's flavors are so bright she has to wear some adorbs Selima Optique shades on sale at Daily Candy Deals for 30% off. Elizabeth Faulkner pretends that she is enjoying Danielle's dish because while it is a cheese course it is also dessert. Geez, Elizabeth, if you can't say anything nice...While the judges are cooing and analyzing, the former contestants are just bitching about fig seeds or, you know, sour grapes.
