Recap Image

With Giacomo gone, the teams head back to the dorms. In private, Tom vows to get back at Garrett and Keith for putting him on the chopping block. Out back, he boasts that he's given up the most to be here, a comment that sets off Rachel and Heather. They angrily exclaim that all they know is cooking. Being here is everything for them.

The next morning, three men and five women return to the kitchen. Chef Ramsay chides them for losing the battle of the sexes, then points out Sara, Heather and Rachel for being leaders. Chef Ramsay then tabs Heather to join the blue team. She isn't happy about the change.

Chef Ramsay then takes the teams on a field trip to see one of the most successful restaurants in Los Angeles. Some of the chefs guess that they're going to see Wolfgang Puck or some other famous chef in the kitchen. Instead, Chef Ramsay walks them down the street to Pink's, a famous hot dog stand that's been in business for 66 years. Virginia doesn't order the Gordon Ramsay dog, although she does remark that it's probably spicy and hot, just like he is. Hopefully Virginia's husband works Monday nights and won't be watching the show.

Then Chef Ramsay informs the cooks that in two short hours, Hell's Kitchen will open for lunch for the first time. Everybody runs back to the restaurant, except for Keith, who half jogs and half walks. Why? Because, according to Keith, "That's how K Grease rolls." Which is the second time in five minutes he's referred to himself as K Grease. So it's safe to assume that not only does Keith not run, he doesn't think before he speaks either.
