Day 2 and Roy is wishing he had a pair of football shoulders to mount the arm pieces. He remembers his Dad telling him that you might not have what you need but you have things to make what you need so he starts fabricating a harness. Glenn walks in with Mac to survey the damage and starts off with Nicole whose direction he really likes. Sarah is asked about her references and she says she doesn’t have many but maybe TWO TERMINATOR MOVIES. He tells her to think about what she is doing and not to make it look flat. Glenn looks confused at Roy’s floppy robot arms but likes everything else and encourages him to focus more on the makeup and less on fabrication. Laura has changed ideas but Glenn says he needs to see the finished piece first which makes her even more weary. Derek’s design is liked but Glenn tells him to look at other ways to really make it pop including maybe adding lights. Glenn is excited by all the designs but in particular Nicole and Derek. Laura gets intimidated by Roy and decides to go a bit bigger while Sarah scales back since everyone else is going so big in order to stand out. Um didn’t that hurt you before in the sidekick/superhero challenge? Derek’s face mold cracks a bit but he decides to incorporate it instead of being upset.
The last day has arrived and Laura decides to meld all her concepts into one design which never works on this show. I don’t want to see her go but come on girl get your shit together and settle on one idea. Sarah’s chest piece that she had been working on isn’t fitting because her model has huge boobs. Her quick fix is to tape the shit out of the boobs and try to fit the piece over them which kind of works. Nicole is excited about her piece because it has a bitch brow…you know that wacky high arch brow kind of what Nicole tries to achieve. During Last Looks, Laura’s model starts to get faint and has to leave to use the bathroom which leaves her sitting there worrying about whether she will have a model on stage. Eventually he comes back and she scrambles to get the rest of the edges fixed and airbrushed. This week’s special guest judge is producer Gale Ann Hurd whose credits include the Terminator franchise and Aliens. Bitch is amazing, basically.
Glenn is on the fence with Laura’s piece while Neville downright hates it because all her ideas aren’t cohesive. Roy’s piece gets a lot of comments about having everything but the kitchen sink but Neville is very impressed. Glenn makes a point to note that Roy spends too much time fabricating and not enough on makeup and his huge pieces make him miss other opportunities. Neville can’t see any sort of function with Sarah’s piece and notes that she doesn’t seem to know herself. Gale asks which organs were replaced and she can’t answer her which leaves Gale disappointed that Sarah seems to have missed the main objective. Nicole’s piece is liked by all and Gale wants to bring her to Comic Con because the fans would eat it up. Glenn loves her new mentality which is that she creates for her, not what she thinks the judges want to see. Derek’s creation is also well received with Gale saying she could see it in one of her films. Derek and Nicole are clearly at the top with Nicole taking another win. Glenn announces that Sarah was definitely the one to leave this weak because nothing looked functional as a cyborg. Sarah thanks the judges and though she is disappointed in herself she wouldn’t trade the experience for anything. Can’t say I haven’t been waiting for this moment for awhile…
