Finally it’s Jinkx’s turn and as she holds a note for about 10 seconds, with no runs mind you, Detox’s self-opinion starts deflating while Roxxxy interviews that Jinkx is the weakest because she’s just a gimmick and all the girls with “gimmicks” are getting by and it’s pissing her off . Phi Phi much, Roxxxy?
Moving on to the assholes. Lucian builds them up, saying the bridge is the most inspired part of the song, and we get another death stare from Coco while Detox ignores her and says they’re ready. The brilliant and talented (in her mind at least) Roxxxy caterwauls her line then says “sequenced gown.” Heh. Even Lucian’s all “Bitch, it’s SEQUINED and I don’t even wear dresses. Or sequins.” She feebly tries to argue her point but is probably remembering how she called paillettes “paylets” and we see the moment self-awareness came to Roxxxy when she asks if it’s wrong English. Lucian smirks.
Detox messes up and tries to “charm” with vulgarity but Lucian just dismisses her with a “don’t swear during a recording take” and it’s on to Alaska. She’s trying to get the take but…oh look, Rotox are up their own asses and acting like clowns. The other queens are not amused so Lucian tells them they’re changing keys where there isn’t a key change. He’s met with blank stares so he tells them they’re a train wreck. Alaska admits that their behavior is unacceptable in interview but she likes being part of the In Crowd too much to tell them to knock it off.
Time for some freestyling where everyone performs to character, including Detox pulling a stupid jaw wiggle, Jade being weak and feeble-sounding, Ivy and Jinkx killing it, Roxxxy being a loud attention whore, and Coco glaring in silence. And that’s a wrap. All that’s left is to appreciate Lucian’s WTF faces:
The queens head back to the workroom and most of them are thrilled because, good or bad, they mostly had fun, except for Coco who’s still pouting and begging for attention. Alyssa tells Coco that she looked like she was about to go off and asks if she thought Detox was instigating something. While Coco continues to give herself plausible deniability by not actually saying what she thinks, Detox comes over and point blank asks her why she’s being so “dusty” and shady. (Wasn’t “dusty” good last season? I can’t keep up.)
Detox claims she wasn’t trying to sabotage anyone (eh…not EXACTLY true) and she’s sorry Coco feels that way, which normally the classic “non-apology apology” pisses me off, but Detox has nothing to apologize for, then walks off so Coco can huff to Alyssa and say that Detox was accusing her of all these (very true) things even if she didn’t say a word because 90% of communication is non-verbal, and non-verbally she’s been shady all day.
I said, “Thank you.”
I say, “Fuck you.”
