Leaving Team Pineapple alone for the moment, they turn to grill Team Tuna. Howie and Joey From New York re-express their opinions about their individual dishes and once again Bravo has transposed the images. Howie was not totally happy with his dish, but Joey was happy with what he did. Colicchio says the real reason the team is there is because Casey's dish was "really weak" and he wants to know if Casey gave it her all. Stone-faced, Casey says automatically, "I put forth a great effort in this dish." Padma asks if she tasted her own dish. Casey cops to the fact that her dish was under-seasoned and cites the lack of sufficient soy sauce as the cause. However, she doesn't blame anyone except herself for not remembering to add more salt. Howie and Joey From New York reveal that they didn't taste the dish until after it was served. "But she's got IMMUNITY," Padma says, getting a bit stonedly stroppy, "Why wouldn't you TASTE her dish before it went out?" Howie knows he shouldn't have trusted Casey and admits he clearly made an error in judgment. "A drastic error," Padma corrects him. Casey's eyes are filled with tears now and she does that side lip biting thing to keep it from trembling dangerously. Casey finally says, "I just WANT to say, you guys have laid SUCH a GUILT blanket that I can't really explain what I feel for these people right now. Because having Immunity? Is really not worth it in a sense of one of these people have to go home because MY dish was the worst." Drama, drama, drama! Padma sends them away. As they walk out, Colicchio shakes his head in irritation. I just noticed Sara M. is wearing a sarong instead of chef pants -- does she always do that?
