During the judges critiques, Aja, Shea Couleé, Trinity Taylor and Valentina were all declared safe. But from an outside perspective it seemed, at least to Yvie, that Brooke wanted to avoid putting two strong performers together in order to sabotage all the strong ones with a bit of an anchor to weigh them down. In fact, they spend the quieter first third of the episode reminding viewers of that foundation. Both had to strut their stuff to the Mary J. Davenport and Honey and Yvie Oddly and Scarlet.

Yes, Ru asked both of them to shantay and stay and warned the other girls in the back and they now have some stiff competition. And among his later, Tramp-less sound films, is a stirring, still-relevant morality play, the darkest of postwar Hollywood comedies. I wanted to represent an Asian minority immigrant, who immigrated here at a young age and who didn't know any better and still, I stayed true to myself and I made my way to the top. No, not the Snatch Game.
Silky, still basking in her winning glory after being overshadowed by the best lip sync of the season , is still sure she is bringing just enough to the table to make it to the end. It looks much better than it sounds. Bring Adore Delano in for a singing challenge! She takes off a robe, revealing her long legs, then struts around, pushing the men away and such. Brooke Lynn and A'Keria C. Before the episode finished, RuPaul abruptly announced a 14th queen entering the competition. Shuga fares much better in a gorgeous period gown, as does Brooke Lynn in a stunning horse facekini.
Then Violet appears in a huge princess gown. Yes, Drag Race needs that sweet sponsorship dollar thank you Voss Events , but at this stage in the competition a mini-challenge that doesn't test any actual drag skills is a waste of time. That lip sync was one of the most incredible feats I have ever seen on the Drag Race stage. It progresses at its own pace and on its own terms, subjecting those who experience it to the volatility of its whims. The fight is gorgeously staged, with Gregor at one point standing so tall on the staircase above his brother that he eclipses the sun, and it culminates in a haunting act of self-sacrifice. Mythology, be it personal, national, or otherwise, is empty, everywhere. Purse-purse could win Miss Congeniality at this point.

In contrast, the depiction of an escalating argument between Jen and Judy at a restaurant succeeds in fleshing out the former, in part because it allows her sadness and anger to bleed into each other. Swanberg continues to forge a variety of contexts in which money and authority, as expressions of power, confuse sex. Instead, Varys jumps directly to talk of sedition when he hears his queen speak rather abstractly of destiny. I admire her brutal honesty! Silky takes this opportunity to only do her lips, not the rest of her face, and comes out in an insectoid look. See our and sound off with other fans in. Instead it was Brooke Lynn again! Peppermint, Sasha Velour and Shea Couleé were praised for their performances, with Peppermint winning the challenge.
The audience was dropped randomly into this chaotic six-episode microcosm of her life and left it just as suddenly. She credits Naomi for teaching her to do eyebrows. Sure enough, Silky walked the catwalk with a full leather get-up and black fabric over her face all to look like an ant. The episode clearly knows how to make artful use of shadow, as in the stealthy sequence with Arya in the library. The contestant returned as a guest for the reunion and finale episodes. Because hoo boy, they were bad in Snatch Game. He also has a lot of sex, despite being unmarried.
Nina went for a red, white and blue patriotic colonial thing and then Shuga rebounded with a glamorous purple gown that Ru herself would look great in. You can see the grueling process wear him down, as it does smug politician Boris Scherbina Stellan Skarsgård , who quickly drops his prickly exterior to become a crucial ally in accessing the considerable resources needed to deal with the disaster. This year, our intrepid drag queens had to lay down on a box with fabric underneath them. As the mini winner, Brooke Lynn got to pair up the queens as they acted out various Cops-inspired scenes. Those drag sisters are newly-out gay veterans. Every action, even the brief glimpses of the brave quaking with fear as death looms over them, feels like an inevitability, and by and large unsurprising. When Nina arrived on the scene she proved her acting and characterization skills, but it might have been too late to stop the train of Brooke who was absolutely killing it with the physical comedy.
Brooke Lynn turned a reveal, going from afro 70s look to dominatrix pink scrappy thing and it fully gagged the entire panel. All in all it came off as desperate and unfocused and had almost no humor whatsoever. The energy she brings to Snatch Game, plus her gorgeous eggplant gown, earns Shuga a solid top three spot.

Now that Janus Films has struck out on their own with the Criterion Channel, hopefully the distributor can find a durable niche online. This is every inch the returning queen outshining her potential successors. She also asked which pairing in the room would be the most challenging and she, of course, named Silky and Soju. I like the colors, but why it gotta be so shady? And we get an incredibly satisfying conclusion in the lip sync.
