Ru then tells her to pretend she’s auditioning for his show “Cover Girl” and makes her sing a bit of the song Broadway style, and she sings it to the cheap seats. She also doesn’t hesitate on the words, so someone’s a Drag Racefan.
Jujubee’s trying to Stuart Smalley Shante into saying three good things about herself, while she’s wearing a purple wig, but Shante can only think of two. Once in with Ru, he asks her who taught her how to live. Shante starts crying and says that she’s always been pretty much on her own. Ru thinks she needs to be loved because she’s beautiful and in her prime. Then he cheers her on, asking if Dolores is sexy and that she needs to apply Dolores’ confidence into both the performance and her everyday life. Shante agrees and lets out her battle cry, “Pow! Bang! Boom!” before she does the most awkward karate kick on her way out of the office.
Delta and Dylan discuss how she feels, and Dylan’s still feeling insecure about the slit but won’t question it because she trusts Delta. And Delta continues showing us her very likeable side by getting maternal again and telling Dylan that regardless of what happens she’s proud of her and Dylan’s voice gets quavery when she thanks Delta.
Remembering that this is a show with drag queens and all this warm, fuzzy, and sincere emotion is like kryptonite, we get a bridge scene where Jujubee is invading Pandora’s station because Delta keeps her make-up locked up and away from greedy little Laotian fingers.
Dylan’s in with Ru and he asks about her mother. She tells him about how she was kicked out of the house when she dropped out and hasn’t spoken to her mother in two years because she’s afraid of being rejected again. Ru thinks she needs to channel Ember Alert’s strength. Then she asks Ru for a hug and reminds us in interview just how raw it all still is.
Last minute busy work and Kristy’s getting into her actor mode. She’s feeling Felicity while her mother hopes she finally sees herself for the star she really is. Shante says that Drag U’s taught her that what matters is the size of the diva on the inside while her sister hopes Shante puts away the comic books and starts focusing on her appearance. That was rather sharp coming from a grown woman with braces. Just sayin’. Dylan’s finished letting a drag queen metaphorically kick her ass (by being lovely and supportive of her) and…Pandora mentions that Drag U has a lot of secrets while Delta tells us that Dylan doesn’t know her mother’s in the audience. Because insecure, nervous people really like emotional surprises while standing on a stage being filmed for a TV show.
