Not so much professionalism on the other side, though. Gordon finds a plate of prematurely seasoned scallops that Dana can’t account for. Who wants to take a wild guess? If you said Robyn did it, you’re clearly familiar with this show. And of course, Robyn refuses to take responsibility. She starts yelling at Gordon that she seasoned the scallops and left them for Dana, and Gordon tells her if she shouts at him one more time and he’ll physically lift her up and launch her out of the kitchen himself. Do it! Robyn says there are too many people in the kitchen. I agree, Robyn, so why don’t you have a seat? But then Gordon drags Dana into the back. Is he really going to blame her for Robyn sucking? Especially when he’s the one who insisted she accept Robyn’s help?
Please launch her. Please?
No, he knows better than that. He’s just giving her a lecture about keeping control of her station. Basically, giving her permission to yell at Robyn, so I’m okay with that. Dana runs back and kicks Robyn away from the scallops so she can do them herself, which seems to work out. Both teams complete dinner service without any further incidents. Did we really go an entire service without a single RAWR??
Barbie face says it all, as always.
Unsurprisingly, the Returning Chefs win. Not that it would’ve made a difference, because the person going home would come from the Black team anyway. Gordon scolds them for making dumb mistakes and tells them to go pick two nominees. Dana is irate, because her station was the problem station, yet most of the problems stemmed directly from the “help” of Robyn and Clemenza. She says as much as soon as they all sit down, and Robyn immediately tries to pass the buck. Clemenza also thinks he doesn’t deserve a nomination, but really, what other options does she have? Dana’s not going to nominate herself, and Barbie, Christina, and Justin were fine. Barbie thinks Dana shouldn’t try to pass the station mistakes off onto her helpers, but it’s not enough to sway her ultimate opinion; she ends up nominating Robyn for being essentially useless. No arguments here. Robyn can’t take even a hint of criticism, and when she starts to protest, Christina just loses it on her, calling her out for her inability to accept blame for anything under the sun. Christina doesn’t lose it very often, but you can tell she’s just had enough. Robyn freaks out and screams at everyone, essentially solidifying her nomination. “You don’t want me here, and you don’t., and you don’t…blah blah blah,” she says, as everyone just stares. I love how Justin doesn’t even try to contradict her, just eats his rocket pop with a shrug and a nod. Justin has wanted Robyn gone forever now, and he’s not about to hide it.
