Then there's a montage of Hung working his ASS off. Just running around and chopping and butchering and cooking. Ed tries to let Ilan be his sous chef but he also knows that ultimately, it's his ass on the line. So you may not agree with Ed's general tone and the way he speaks, but I do see his point. Ed explains that he's going to let Ilan do the dessert, even though he got such high marks on his dessert in the last challenge. So Ed is kind of just giving up on a quarter of his meal, which seems really dumb. Meanwhile, the doctor is giving Angelo a shot in the butt which as a three percent chance of helping him feel better. At this point, I would tell them to do whatever it took so that I could feel marginally better for like twelve hours, and then collapse when it's all over. The doctor doesn't seem to think there's much chance that Angelo will recover in time to cook, though.
It's the day of the final challenge. Ed interviews that he's anxious and stressed out. Ed and Angelo eat breakfast and still don't know what's up with Angelo. So we cut to Angelo, who is dressed and showered and looking a bit better. The doctor comes in and checks Angelo out, and finally clears him to cook. The doctor advises Angelo to take in lots of fluids, and Angelo says that he's really relieved. Ed comes by to check in and finds Angelo sitting up, planning out his meals. Angelo imagines that Ed is upset that he's better, and Ed kind of confirms that in an interview. The three finalists head out for the final day of competition.
They have three hours of prep before service. Kevin, unlike Ed, is happy that Angelo is there to compete, because as he said before, he wants to beat the best. Angelo has to take time to get caught up with Hung, and Angelo is grateful that Hung did so much, but he also knows that his dinner could be better if he hadn't missed the prep day.
