As my partner pointed out, someone got a really good redemption arc this season.

It's Tatianna, I am actively rooting for that girl.

Both Tati and Alyssa's reappearances immediately made the show feel 100x better.

Tati is one smart bitch. I missed her so much! :swoon:

Just finished the episode and :tviv:

Look, Phi Phi is a fairly volatile, vile person. I'm glad she's gone. Yeah, it's nice to have a villain in the season, but one that is actively that toxic becomes really tough to watch.

That was one of the best episodes of Drag Race, hands down.


Also, I loved Tati and Detox :allears:

I am glad that they both won because I was sure Alyssa was going to win it just because she's Alyssa Edwards and Tatianna isn't but that was a good choice.

Poor Phi Phi, I hope for the best. People are people.

Yeah that could not have gone any better as a mid-season climactic ending sequence. What a wonderfully messy, scattered exit from Phi Phi to cap it off. The indignity of it all that must have been for her to sit alone in that 12 seater van back to the hotel and realize people saw more potential left in Tosha Salad than you.

You'll excuse if I don't shed a tear for Phi Phi. She's chosen a career in the public eye and decides to act like a diva without the street cred to back it up. Not excusing internet bullying or whatever but she loving sucks at her job.

After suffering through years of crappy seasons and undeserving winners on shows that my husband watches (Survivor, Big Brother) it is refreshing to have such an awesome competition.

I still want Alaska to win, but everyone that's left except Roxy has lots of talent. No filler.

Hahaha, that's the perfect summation. There was no way that Alyssa was picking Roxxxy after that conversation. That said, Roxxxy is clearly the next to go...

100% agree with you. I liked her as a villain, but there's no way to keep watching a villain be lovely and toxic and skate along in the competition. Her Nomi was decent, but it wasn't as good as Alaska or even Detox and Katya. She got into the lip synch for ~*~drama~*~

Christ PhiPhi, that isn't how you redeem yourself. Sure you have talent in drag, but if you can't work well with others....

Meanwhile on S5 I was just sick of Alyssa Coco Drama, I am loving her on AS2. So glad she and Tati get to come back.

Meanwhile, poor Alaska is getting a shocking edit. Apart from the actual challenges, she's a non-entity. Where is Alaska?

I know she's getting dragged online right now, and i hope she's doing ok personally. That said, her makeup was fuuucked this entire episode, to top it all off. Good god get a grip girl.

Also holy gently caress that lip sync. Instant classic and the best possible option. I knew i was right about Tatiana being awesome. I may have listened to shut up and drive a lot last night.

There's no edit in walking past someone trying to give you a hug. Makes me wonder how much else was truly "edited" to make her look bad.

I really feel for PhiPhi. Yes, she was edited terribly. She got the short end of the stick but she kept on playing into the narrative so badly and has been so emotional and flailing that it makes it hard to support her. Like before this episode I was seriously in the pro-Phi camp, but now I can only defend her because of how much I don't like the producers and editors of the show.

Like, she's right in that speech which wasn't actually a speech. Alyssa (and Alaska tbh) have been getting passes for things. And it's not like they both don't deserve to be there. They're great! But stuff that they would do/wear would get read by literally any other queen like their comedy routine.

But girl, just stop giving them ammo and they couldn't do this to you! If she had just hugged Alyssa and didn't say all that stuff they couldn't use it! Bleh.

Woof, that was tough to watch. I absolutely cannot stand that argument of "That's just how I feel, am I not allowed to have feelings?!" in response to talking poo poo. It's the new "just my opinion"/"just telling it like it is". Girl, no; if you're going to be a bitch then own it. I don't wish any harm to Phi Phi but I am so loving glad she's off my screen.

That LSFYL was glorious, I never thought that I'd be so happy to have Tatianna back.

Good lord it was nice to have a lsfyl that actually had consequences again. That was absolutely loving amazing.

Did some people really not like Alaska/Alyssa's comedy routine? I thought it was really good. It played to both their strengths and gave Alyssa the focus without Alaska fading into the background imo

I thought it was funny, but it wasn't a polished routine like Tatianna/Detox. I wanted to grab Alyssa by the shoulders and turn her from a profile.

That's basically my feeling too. It was funny, but it rested a lot on Alyssa's old catchphrases compared to Tati/Detox's new characters. Like the Michelle "BEAST" thing for example.

From PhiPhi's interview in Vulture:

quote:

Even when I left I was like, Okay, fine, I want to just go see my boyfriend. I didn't hug Alyssa because I didn't want to cry, and I wrote that on the board, but I don't think that they show that this episode. I'm a very emotional person, and I felt like if she hugged me the tears would come out I just saw how fake she was and I didn't want that to be what I ended on.

Girl just doesn't know when to shut the gently caress up. The interview actually made me feel somewhat more sympathetic to her right up to that line. Couldn't even get through the lie of "hugging Alyssa would have just been too emotional" without immediately taking it back and being spiteful and gross.

Alaska & Alyssa's routine was uncreative and overall unfunny, (And I like them both as performers) so count me among the "not like it camp" but it was strategically very smart as it was unlikely to bomb entirely and put them on the bottom.

Detox and Tatiana at least tried to do something with a creative spark to it, which somehow survived Dextox's terrible speaking voice choices.

But it's going back to airing on VH1 in HD right after this episode?

I don't think Ru's Emmy ambitions were one of the main causes of this, but yeah Viacom would love for more people to shell out for its stupidly expensive Logo packages, I'm sure.

And I just bought the season pass, so I guess they got what they wanted.

Anyway, I feel for PhiPhi, but I just can't with her anymore. She is that bully who gets upset when people finally stand up to them and fight back, and then she acts like the victim.

I'm sure the original plan wasn't for two queens to return, but Adore quitting sort of necessitated that to get their episode order.
