Last week a ton of crap happened: Maya quit, Anthony came back, Valeria quit, Cerri came back, Emelio and Anthony won the challenge, Jonathan was sent home, and then Cerri was out again.
This week the designers are somehow transported back to the 1980s, when dressing like a circus freak was cool:
Tim Gunn: "What is this? Some kind of hot tub time machine?"
Yes. That's exactly what this is. And my viscera is just not feeling inspired by this episode at all:
Anthony: "Sing it, sister."
So the designers get a private performance from Cirque du So Lame, otherwise known as "the smallest show on earth," and then they go make clown clothes.
Back in the design room, Emilio is quickly losing his mind:
Emilio: "All hail Emilio, king of the designers!"
Tim: "Excuse me, your highness, but your dress needs more color."
Emilio: "Uh, did you not get the memo about worshiping me?"
So, Tim and Emilio get into this huge fight, with Emilio scratching at Tim with his fingernails and Tim swinging a broken beer bottle around. Finally, the other designers break up the fight and Emilio apologizes for being a jackass and Tim promises to stop coming in to work drunk and then he continues on his rounds of the design room:
Seth Aaron announces that he is making a top hat and the response is the sound of crickets.
Anthony is letting his viscera take over:
Anthony: "I have my good viscera on one shoulder and my bad viscera on the other shoulder and they keep telling me different things."
Jay tells us that a lot of people believe in him, even though he is obviously imaginary.
Mila is just quietly doing her work:
Jay: "God, I'm so sick of that evil bitch."
Yes, but what do you think of her designs?
Jay: "I hate her designs. And that's my completely objective, unbiased opinion based purely on the fact that I hate her as a person."
Tim gives his final words of advice:
Tim: "This is a big day for all of us. Especially for all of you. Actually, it isn't a big day for me at all. Forget I said anything. Oh, but please remember to use the Bluefly wall thoughtfully. Just this once."
Heidi introduces the judges:
Michael: "Hi, guys."
Michael: "Release the Cracken!"
Nina: "Will you please stop saying that every time Heidi introduces me?! It's not funny anymore! I swear to god, I'd punch you in the balls if you had any!"
Jay - He made a really great pant and a top inspired by a band jacket. It was probably the most wearable outfit on the runway but the circus inspiration was clearly there
Mila - She made a big black and white jacket with a ridiculous collar and pink and yellow accents
Anthony - blech. This awful dress looks like it's made out of viscera
Emilio - He made a beautiful gown. The judges love it.
Seth Aaron - He made almost the same outfit Mila made, but his is even more ridiculous. It's straight out of Dr. Seuss. Having said that, I have to agree with the judges: for some reason, I like it more than Mila's
Anthony is booted without a second thought for his terrible blue condom of a dress:
Heidi: "$300 worth of viscera? Are you kidding me?"
Mila and Jay will be making collections but will have to fight to the death next week to see who will present at Bryant Park alongside Emilio and Seth Aaron.
Emilio has the favorite look and will have immunity in the final episode:
Emilio: "All hail Emilio!"
