    Good episode if you can get immunity take it Ed had so much to say on the subject and he's gone ha ha and Beverly cameback but isn't knocking it out of the park I want her to win but I have my doubts she will.

    I knew Ed was gone as soon as he selected to buy canned oysters. How many times does it take for these chefs to get buying canned, frozen, boxed, etc food is pretty much an automatic ticket to packing your knives especially this late in the game.

    Yeah, that look on Tom's face... it was like Ed broke a deadly sin.


    I kinda want Bev to win because of the story... I just really don't want Sarah to win... since Heather left she took on the broken record sound of "Beverly sucks, I'm her superior."


    I think it's between Paul and Lindsay, they seem to be the best chefs.

    I am rooting for Bev and Paul. I will be fine with Lindsay winning, but I will hate it if Sarah wins. She needs to go home next episode.



    I agree with you that Sarah has become Heather 2.0( though I suspect she always felt that way about Bev, but the producers focused on Heather until she went home and then focused on Sarah's dislike for her). Yes, Bev is a bit emotional and I too find it a bit over the top( though understandable after what she has been through). While they might not like Bev, it doesn't give them an excuse to become a total bitch. Lindsay is mad at her because she ruined her food during restaurant wars, but at least her reaction to Bev coming back was sporting. Sarah was just pulling a Heather.

    Here's a TV Guide interview with Ed in which he talks about the episode, his elimination, Beverly, and Last Chance Kitchen:
