Where’s the beef, Gasmii? Are you ready for a totally rad episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race? Well get out your acid wash and slip on those jelly shoes, because Ru’s taking us back to the 80s.
But first, previously Jinkx got a bullshit critique (since she won) from Michelle while Lineysha was very pretty but very high so she got the boot. Queens come back to the workroom after panel and are all very sad about Lineysha leaving. Or that she can’t spell “pleasure.” Then they call her “Latino Shade” (because she wrote that on the mirror) and “Beautiful, crafty lady,” like that’s a high compliment, then they all acknowledge and move on.
Moving on to the foreshadowing portion of our program, Alaska asks Detox how it felt to lip synch and she says it was awful and swears never to be in the bottom again, ever. Those not in the clique call out to Jinkx and Ivy, having mopped Lineysha’s stash before she left, drones that it was an amazing performance. Before anyone can congratulate Jinkx, Roxxxy’s honking and braying and herking and jerking around about “DON’T COUNT OUT TAMAR, BITCH,” because she’s like a loud, drag version of that bitch fairy, Tinkerbelle, and she’ll just die if people stop clapping for her.
Jinkx is feeling underappreciated because her friends on the show aren’t a pack of loud-mouthed attention whores so she doesn’t get the same kind of attention Rolaskatox gets. From each other. Because Rotox are so loud and so far up their own (each others?) asses and couldn’t care less how annoying they are. (I am definitely losing my patience with those two.)
For good measure, Alaska decides to throw away some of her own good will and announces that Rolaskatox is still intact while Jinkx voices over that she is in it to win it and they should be taking her as a threat…then we get a shot of her passed out on a chair in case we forgot about her narcolepsy and how we laughed and laughed at how clueless she seemed in the first episode. Hmmm, we get a Jinkx v. the clique anvil sequence. Let’s see who wins this battle royale?
Next morning and the assholes announce their presence with douche-thority while Jinkx and Jade announce themselves, thinking they’re mocking Rolaskatox but the jokes on them since narcissists are like honey badgers and they don’t give a shit. Alaska recaps that they’re down to eight while Alyssa nonsensically says it’s “balls to the wall…LITERALLY” (words have meanings, sweetie, and unless this suddenly became Killer Karoake, I don’t THINK you’re balls were literally to the wall.)
SHEMAIL! Ru’s clues are all about saving whales and saving face and getting by with a little help from friends with benefits and Ivy is alert! Lineysha must not have left much. Ru’s working some creative director realness with a gray windowpane checked suit and white shirt with print placket to announce this week’s mini-challenge. Since in the bad old days he’d have to slap on makeup however and wherever he could the queens are going to have to apply their slap…in total darkness. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
