Recap Image

After announcing that Paula and Danny are the final two, screens drop from the ceiling and chef Ramsay splits Hell's Kitchen in two. One half will be Paula's side and the other half will be Danny's. Chef Ramsay announces that they will be working with Hell's Kitchen architect and designer, John Janavs to design their restaurants, and Sous Chefs Scott and Gloria to come up with a great menu. Chef Ramsay dismisses Danny and Paula to the dorms and reminds them they have a lot of work to do.

Back in the dorms, Danny and Paula decide to celebrate and end up finishing a couple of bottles of champagne instead of working on the restaurants and menus. The next morning comes, and Paula is confident she will be fine, despite not working the previous night. Danny is not confident at all, upset with himself for partying all night long.

Danny meets with the designer, John Janavs, about his restaurant design. He wants a long bench against the wall. John suggest something more dimensional. Despite not truly understanding what John is saying, Danny goes along with it. Danny also wants mounted fish on the walls while John feels that the restaurant will become "Bob's Bait shack".

When Paula meets with John, she goes for a warm feel for her restaurant wanting candles on the wall, and simpler design.
