RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 2 episode 7 answers the question we’ve all had from last week. Did Katya also pick Tatianna to go home?
Answer, as evidenced above: NOPE!
Alaska swears there’s no RoLaskaToxxx blood oath. You guys! Roxxxy loaned her that shirt! How could she eliminate a queen when she lent her a shirt? I mean, she’d have to take her shirt off right there on the runway! Or something. She’s kinda right about Tatianna missing 2 episodes, so is that really fair for her to continue when she hasn’t gone through all of the same tests? But still. A shirt?
So it’s the makeover challenge – in come the family members & the waterworks. It’s the emotional porn episode! We get:
Moms have to be made over with #DragFamilyValues. Katya suggests sexy Russian mail order bride and her peasant mother. Katya’s mom asks “who will I be?” Love her.
Back to the emotional porn
Alyssa & her sister apparently haven’t seen each other since their mother’s funeral a year ago. So Alyssa’s a little distracted this episode. Detox & her sister are coming up on the anniversary of their dad’s death. OF COURSE we re-visit Roxxxy’s whole bus stop story. Alaska’s mom is glad Alaska is clean this time around. Katya’s mom thanks RuPaul for counseling Katya. (Editor’s Note: RuPaul is not a licensed therapist. Use Drag Race for entertainment, not as a substitute for therapy.)
Anastasia of the makeup brand is in the workroom to fix the ladies eyebrows. We get no tips for the at-home gals except to fill in thin eyebrows with a pencil & pomade fuller eyebrows into a distinct shape. Thanks Anastasia! Knew that already!
Each duo has to prepare a vogue dance-off. It’s cute & unnecessary.
Time for the runway!
Ru has placed Detox and Katya in the top. OOooohhhh, girl! The queens and their relatives get Marc Jacobs gift certificates. And then we get to see Milk. Yay Milk. Rowr.
That puts Alyssa, Alaska & Roxxxy in the bottom. Whoa.
Alaska goes to Pouty McPouty town big time. She’s going on & on about how some girls have been eliminated for doing bad in 1 challenge even though they were strong previously. (Um, huh? Wasn’t that what y’all railed on Alyssa for considering history over a poor performance in a week?) Then pouts about drag hurting and she’s sorry she won so many times. It’s not cute.
Does anyone else see this outburst as a bit forced? I don’t want to call producer shenanigans, but there seems to be a bit of shenanigans going on right now.
Detox is re-thinking her final decision, saying Alaska’s being really unattractive right now. Katya teases Alaska a bit about her decision. Party.
Sending Alaska home tonight? Now THAT would be a shocking twist. That I’m not expecting. At least if Detox wins. She’s clearly not sending Roxxxy home:
The only thing that would make that picture better would be if Alaska were looking on. Mournfully. Finally understanding how the game works. Oh wait!
Detox wins the lip sync by a crack. That’s another $10,000 stolen from Katya.
Because of course – it’s only RoLaskaToxxx drama if a member of RoLaskaToxxx is in both the bottom & the top. So it’s Detox’ call, and she decides to send Alyssa home. She just couldn’t send Roxxxy home! She just couldn’t send her home!
Oh, come ON!
What did you guys think? What about that Alaska hissy fit? Are you #TeamAlaska, #TeamDetox, #TeamKatya or #TeamRoxxxy? (The correct answer is #TeamKatya, FYI)
