As the season finale begins, Chef Ramsay tells the last two chefs standing, Paul and Will, that their biggest service is about to begin. He implores them to start thinking about the menus and the magic that they want to show off.

The final competitors return to the dormitories to make their plans. After a brief celebration and a Champagne toast, they work late into the night preparing their menus for the final dinner service.

After a long day in the kitchen, Chef Ramsay tells Paul and Will that he thinks they both need to relax and de-stress. So he invites them to join him for dinner. He also surprises them with some familiar faces from home. Will's wife and mother and Paul's brother greet them at the limousines.

They meet Chef Ramsay at Belasco, where he tells them he wants to give them a tour of the kitchen. But when he opens the doors, the competitors are greeted by a theater full of cheering fans.
