Fabio runs out to the front and starts setting up tables. He greets the servers and goes over the menu with them. This is really Fabio's element. I think he's a good cook, but a great front-of-house guy. Too bad this isn't Top Front-of-House Guy. He would totally win.
Tiffany is working on her eggs. Marcel is yelling instructions over to her about how to peel them and she's muttering under her breath that she knows how to cook an egg. And then she gets all freaked out because Fabio is out in the front and she's still cooking, and she needs to get out there. Except she has all these eggs to peel. And, oops. The eggs aren't cooked properly. This whole section is very confusing. Tiffany seems to be saying that she listened to Marcel's suggestions and that's why her eggs got screwed up. Marcel seems to be saying that Tiffany doesn't know how to cook a six-minute egg. Whatever happened, they need a new dish. Mike comes up with some weird technique where you put an egg in a blend of half sugar and half salt to cure it. I tried looking this technique up, but all of the recipes I found said the yolks needed to cure for at least eight or twelve hours. So I don't know what's going on here, because it looks like Tiffany did about twelve eggs and then handed everything over to Angelo so she could go meet with the servers. They took fifteen extra minutes for this episode and yet things are kind of a mystery still, but I think part of it is the editors' efforts to make it look like Marcel's team had a chance.
So then Angelo tries to convince Marcel that one of their dishes doesn't need a foam, because it will take too much time. Marcel is like, "What? Why not? The foam is already done." Of course it is. Of course Marcel prioritized his foam. Angelo explains that he means it will take too long to plate, because it's fussy and unnecessary, and because the judges have repeatedly told Marcel to cut it out with the stupid foams. Okay, Angelo just says the first part.
The editors are like, "How can we make it look like Dale's team might be in trouble? Everything is going perfectly? Who is crazily anxious about everything and always assumes the worst? BLAIS!" So Blais does an interview where he's like, "I think things were going TOO well and it was the calm before the storm." Oh, Blais. Always so worried, usually for no good reason.
