Aired: 3/19/13

After a combative night in "Hell's Kitchen," Chef Ramsay has a plan to keep the contestants in the line of fire. As the competitors are sleeping, a group of soldiers storm the dorm and wake the home chefs for the next challenge. But before it can begin, Gina announces to Chef Ramsay that she has a personal issue and needs to leave the competition immediately.

After she departs, Chef Ramsay tells the remaining players that the previous dinner service would have gone more smoothly if they had practiced better teamwork. Then the soldiers give a display of what teamwork looks like as they help each other scale a wall.

After the demonstration, Chef Ramsay tells the contestants it's their turn to work together. Each player must scale a wall and then go into a live lobster cage to grab a shellfish. The teams have five minutes to grab as many lobsters as possible. At the end of that time, the Red Team has gathered 31 lobsters, but the men manage to pull out 37.

Rather than giving the men a reward, Chef Ramsay delivers the bad news that this was only the first part of the challenge. He sends them upstairs to get into their chef jackets. While there, Anthony calls in a medic to look at his ankle, which was injured scaling the wall. But he refuses to go to the hospital and heads to the kitchen with the other chefs.
