Sadly, he doesn’t, and the food goes out, allowing the final show to start.
Everything seems to be going fine in the aftermath of service, until Gordon discovers a platter of grilled swordfish, just sitting in the Blue kitchen. Turns out Clemenza had grilled eleven extra pieces, because Royce gave him the wrong count. Well, that’ll eliminate the need for a nomination meeting.
Sure enough, the Red team wins the night, based on their speedy appetizer service. The Blue team has to come up with two nominees, and we all know who it’ll be. I think they only other person to screw up was Guy, and that was minimal compared the rest of it. Oh, and after almost coming to blows earlier that very day, Kimmie and Robyn are cool now. In case you were wondering. Because I know you all care so very much.
As the Blue team starts their discussion, Clemenza strongly objects to being called out, and I guess he must have forgotten what a wreck he was all evening, because he’s not happy. He thinks he pulled his weight and everyone else’s. That’s a lot of damn weight, Clemenza, even discounting everyone else’s. They can’t figure out who else to nominate. I say they should pick between the biggest fuck up and the most annoying, which means Royce either way. Solid plan!
And because we can’t just have an incident-free night with that Red team, Robyn decides to pull Christina aside for a private chat concerning the whole let-me-help you thing. Christina tells her that it wasn’t personal, but Robyn still seems bitter. Whatever. Shut up.
After much deliberation, Guy’s name gets thrown into the discussion, because apparently no one noticed Royce fuck up the plating and swordfish count. Then Guy and Royce throw Brian’s name in, even though he’s the one who saved Clemenza on the scallops, and he immediately gets fighting mad. Then Clemenza brings up Patrick’s name based on the whole leader support thing, and Royce jumps on that bandwagon, as well. Is Royce just going to vote for everyone? Roshni can’t decide who her second nominee should be, and we don’t get to hear it. Is Royce really going to slide without even a mention?
The two nominees end up being Clemenza and Guy. Gordon calls Guy out for being nominated twice in a row, and Guy insists he has more fight than everyone and is a better chef than Clemenza. Gordon then asks Justin who he thinks should be going home. I guess Justin had to be given some lines at some point. Gordon asks everyone what they think, and it’s unanimously Clemenza. Clemenza insists he’s not done, and Gordon ignores the wishes of every single member of the Blue team and sends Clemenza back in line. That won’t be at all awkward back in the dorms.
At least Dana thinks it’s funny.
Everyone publicly celebrates Guy’s departure before he’s even gone, which is mean, but he goes without a fuss, at least. I can’t believe Royce is still here. Seriously, unless production is just using him as a scapegoat and trying to get us all to hate him, I don’t see why he hasn’t been called out over and over again. He screws something up at nearly every turn, he’s irritating, he’s an asshole, and he’s full of himself. What’s to like? If anyone has any theories, I’d love to hear them.
