With their team's chosen, Danny takes his team (Giovanni, Ben and Carol) to the patio, while Paula takes her team (Andrea, LA, and Lacey) to the dorms, to discuss station assignements and menus. Danny is very clear that he wants his team to call him chef, and treat him as such. Giovanni, who isn't happy to be returning, feels that Danny being his boss is difficult to do. Paula and her team are concerned with their "weak link" Lacey. Paula knows how important this dinner service will be and realizes that her disadvantage is the liability of Lacey in her kitchen. The chefs head into the kitchen to begin their respective prep.

Chef Ramsay asks each finalist to prepare their menu for him to inspect and taste. Chef Ramsay worries that Paula's halibut is dry, but is even more concerned when he sees that her crème brule has curdled. The dessert was prepared by Lacey, which concerns Paula even more. Chef Ramsay has some issues with Danny's menu as well. He feels his duck salad is tricky, his entre garnish is too phallic, and even his pear dessert is undercooked.

Next Chef Ramsay inspects each completed restaurant. Paula's restaurant Sun-ergy is has warm colors and candles to bring out the feeling of sunshine and warmth. Danny's restaurant, the Velvet Hammer, has dark floors, long velvet booths, and mounted fish. While both restaurants are completely different from each other, Chef Ramsay feels both were well done and suits the finalists tastes.

Finally the moment arrives, Chef Ramsay opens the doors of Hells Kitchen for the final time this season, and orders quickly start coming in. It's Paula vs Danny. Right away Danny's team shouts "Yes Chef" as his first ticket comes in, but Paula brigade has no response to her first ticket.
