They all take a break and hang out on the bouncy balls. Nicole and Miles flirt, and he says he'd like to take her on a date, which would be magical. Mark hopes their like for each other will weaken them in the competition. Simon comes in with bagged lunches for them and takes a look at their work. He starts with Ryan, who shows him the drawings he's doing, which look like a child did them. Simon's concerned it's too literal a way to interpret the challenge. Then he goes to Abdi, and tells him his work looks like he did it when he was eleven. Nicole agrees with Simon's criticisms being like what they did as a kid. Nicole shows her frames and says there are two pencils that represent her and her sister. It is layers of her memory. He likes that she's not re-creating the works she did as a kid, but is using her memories. Then Peregrine, who's also made candy to go with the cigarettes and pony, which has a very long tail. He thinks it has the potential to be interesting.
Simon asks Miles what his duct tape piece has to do with his childhood, and Miles says it doesn't. Mark thinks Miles is very talented, but thinks that using a piece he's already made is cheating, and Mark doesn't respect cheaters. Simon doesn't seem to have an opinion, but thanks Miles. He moves on to Jaclyn, who says she's finally figured out what she's doing. She'd like to fold a piece of paper in half after painting it to make an abstract work. He doesn't like it, but says she has to do what she feels inside her is the right thing, and was more intrigued by seeing her working with pipe cleaners, but she's gone away from that. She says it's a hard thing for her to be really open. Right. Simon tells them all he's concerned and unimpressed, so they better get their act together. Ryan says this really hurt morale, even for the people who got a good crit from him. Simon also announces no one will get immunity from now until the end, so they really have to get it right each week. Abdi takes a step back and realizes his piece is cliché and doesn't know what he's going to do now.
