No one expected to be re-entering the werkroom to a farewell mirror message from BenDeLaCreme, but alas the gag has finally set in.
After DeLa’s surprise self-elimination, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars queens are still trying to process it all. Some think the pressure of the competition was starting to wear her down. Some think the guilt of having to send fellow competitors home might have played a part. Ultimately some gals, like Shangela, think DeLa’s send off was the ultimate power move straight from the Cersei Lannister playbook. “Even in her final moments, DeLa was still using her little strategy. You don’t only throw yourself to slaughter…you save the lion that was gonna eat you for lunch yesterday. [DeLa] said ’Oh I may be going, but you will remember me as Miss Congeniality.'”
Meanwhile, Trixie equates DeLa’s exit to “Your pretty friends not going to prom” and he can’t be happier to be that much closer to the crown.
See what I mean?
Morgan McMichaels is still gagging (and happy as f*ck) that she’s been brought back into the fold. But Bebe is not going to reveal which lipsticks she’ll pulled for the sake of keeping her allies in tact. “If anyone is curious about anything, just know you’ll be curious for the rest of your lives.” I peep your strategy, mama!
Ru enters the werkroom–this time with special guest, Congresswoman and LGBTQ ally Nancy Pelosi. Ms. Pelosi could not be more proud of the queens for exercising their right to vote and showing pride in their community. Her pep talk is enough to bring tears to their eyes.
Introducing this week’s maxi challenge, “My Best Squirrelfriend’s Dragsmaids Wedding Trip,” Ru lets the queens know that they’ll be tasked with pulling off an Oscar-worthy performance and Morgan will have the honor of assigning roles. But as we saw from episode one, Morgan has no intentions of playing fair. She’s going to use her power to her advantage and the rest of the girls who don’t like their parts will just have to deal.
Break a leg, dolls! Don’t miss RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, Thursday at 8/7c.
