This time Brian manages to prevent the brain fart escaping past his lips, and promises it won’t happen again. I’d have loved it if he’d just blurted out “fish” a second time. He’d have gone home, but it would’ve been hilarious watching Gordon’s head spin in circles. Brian might still be in danger of going home, though, because the whole snafu has stalled the team on entrees.
At least he didn’t say it tasted like chicken
Kimmie is still working on that catfish, and manages to splash grease in her own face because she has a hot-tempered moment. She says the oil just jumped up, but I saw it. She slammed her non-fish spatula down, and that’s what sent grease flying. Lucky for her, the fish came out fine, so she sucks it up and they get rolling with the rest of the entrée orders.
Brian claims he never makes the same mistake twice, which doesn’t explain anything he’s ever done on the fish station. Then Robyn sends up RAWR chicken. Like, seriously RAWR, barely cooked at all.
Gordon nearly has an aneurysm, and dares Brian to say one damn word in jest. Then Clemenza and Justin start yelling at each other, and Justin just takes over Robyn’s station for her. Which is probably all for the best.
“If I fuck this up again it’ll be your fault, right?”
The Red team seems to be getting it done, until Barbie, mere seconds after assuring us that she’s not about to screw anything up, doesn’t season her kale. Don’t worry, girls, things are a mess in Blue.
And I’m not lying. Robyn says she’s better than raw chicken, but apparently she isn’t. She takes her station back from Justin and confidently serves up…more RAWR chicken! It’s all RAWR!!! Gordon does the RAWR meat throw,
(which Scott seem completely unfazed by)
then orders everyone out of the kitchen. Then Robyn does the one thing I would never expect out of her, or anyone else on the show: she tells Gordon not to kick out the guys for her mistake. Wow, that is, no joke, some real team playing, and the only time I’ve ever seen her take full responsibility for a single damn thing. Gordon tells Robyn to stop telling him what to do, then kicks everyone out anyway. So it didn’t work, but it was a nice gesture. For real, kudos to Robyn. And I never thought I’d type that.
The Red team knows they can’t fuck anything else up with Gordon in a grouchy mood, so of course the first thing they do is send up RAWR catfish. He’s not about to let that slide. Everyone gets kicked out, and it looks like it’s another lose-lose night for everyone, including Gordon, because now he and Andi and Scott have to serve the whole place. I guess the diners win, at least. I can’t feel bad for the customer who mentions they’re not getting fed for a while, though. You don’t walk into HK expecting timely food.
Rethinking that Season 11 contract.
