Recap Image

Aired: 9/4/12

The latest installment begins mid-elimination. Chef Ramsay has just let Barbie go, but while Dana, Christina and Justin remain in the competition, only two of them can continue to the finals. Chef Ramsay tells Christina she's made the cut but asks Dana to take off her chef's jacket and leave Hell's Kitchen for good.

With 48 hours left in the competition, Chef Ramsay tells Christina and Justin to spend the night thinking of a winning menu. They must each come up with four appetizers, four entrees and three desserts. With the biggest dinner service of their lives ahead of them, they get straight to work.

After a late night of preparation, both chefs are up early and eager to get into the kitchen. But Chef Ramsay has other plans for them. He calls them down to his office, where he tells them they'll be meeting with their sous-chefs poolside in Las Vegas. After a private jet whisks them off to Sin City, they'll conduct their meetings there.

Christina reflects back on her journey up to this point, including getting past the Red Team's drama and putting her heart on each plate she served. Justin looks back on how he built his confidence and found his voice throughout the competition. Chef Ramsay gives them each a gift -- a new chef's jacket.
