Aired: 9/22/10

After the worst opening night in "Hell's Kitchen" history, Raj is relieved to be back in the game as his teammates implore him to "bring it tomorrow." Meanwhile, Sabrina winds up on her team's bad side, for "throwing Nona under the bus" at the elimination.

Exhausted from a tough first day in "Hell's Kitchen," the contestants are fast asleep until Chef Ramsay sends an Asian drum circle to give them a rude awakening. They head downstairs and are introduced to a special guest, Chef Masaharu Morimoto, who gives them a quick lesson in sushi making.

The contestants are then charged with the difficult "attention to detail challenge" of re-creating the master chef's salmon-cucumber-avocado roll and tuna nigiri. The women get off to a rocky start when Melissa and Gail deliver badly formed rolls and an incorrect number of pieces, leaving the women's team with zero points. But they quickly make up ground with Nona and Jillian's near-perfect score.

Despite forgetting wasabi on many of their salmon-cucumber-avocado rolls, the men's team rallies and wins by one point. They join Chef Ramsay for a wine tasting at Cellar 360 in San Francisco, and they get the added bonus of keeping the Miyabi Morimoto knives they used in the challenge. The women, however, are punished and must prep the first-ever sushi items to be on the menu at the next "Hell's Kitchen" service.
