And then I get worried because one of the diners thought the dry ice was cool. Dana Cowin says that the results will likely be lopsided because Bodega was so much better, but then another random diner says that Bodega's service was better, but he liked the food at Etch. The editors did a really good job of planting the possibility that Etch might win with the diners even though Bodega was clearly better according to the judges and Dana Cowin (and humanity). The diners submit their comment cards. Fabio is trying to assure Blais that the food was great and the diners were happy, but Blais is Blais and he's worried that something will go wrong. Meanwhile, Marcel is telling everyone that his team put out great food. Mike screws his face up in his best WTF look and Antonia tells Tiffany that it was a shitshow. Marcel overhears and calls her "Debbie Downer over here" and "Jesus fucking Christ" and "What the fuck's her problem? Fucking psycho." Wow, Antonia didn't even say anything THAT bad. It was like she said, "Our food sucked and we will lose." She was just acknowledging that things didn't go smoothly in the kitchen. Marcel is cuckoo crazy pants. But you knew that. Antonia interviews that Marcel thought they did a great job, and she was like, "You are on drugs.
Stew Room. Dale's team is loose, joking around and teasing Fabio about his flirtatious ways with the diners. Marcel admits that his team was "in the juice." Padma comes in and asks to see Team Etch, and since they've been varying whether they call the winners first or second, no one really knows what to make of it. Team Etch follows Padma in to Judges' Table and Blais asks Fabio for some positivity, because now he's really worried. Fabio goes and sits on Blais's lap and assures him it will be fine. If you haven't been to Fabio's site and read his reactions to the episode, you really should. He has screenshots of him sitting on Blais's lap with pink hearts drawn around them. Hilarious.
Weird interstitial. Dale remembers that he got eliminated during his restaurant wars, and it was rough. So he hates Restaurant Wars. Fabio, on the other hand, loves it. He remembers on his season, when he dressed in his white suit and kicked ass. Aw, good times. I miss Stefan too. I wish he was on this season.
