Jordan Catalano said: "I think so. There was a remark in Untucked from someone about how Sherry is killing it and is constantly in the top. I would be really interested to see this season with the original edit to get a better idea of how she was doing compared to everyone else."

Eh. I agree that the narratives are getting a little lost but I get a visceral gut reaction every time she's on screen now (similar to how watching House Of Cards post-Spacey stuff came out did, eventually had to stop watching it entirely). So I am okay just accepting less of her on screen. I wonder if the 4th runner up (or whoever 4th runner up would have been) would be allowed to enter Top 4. If there's a taping and lip sync battle, i.e..

I wish to God these shows would just do a top 2. Like every competition show now goes to a top 4 and it will just never make any sense to me.

Allegedly with the final 5 this year they filmed each of them getting eliminated, so it'll just be a foregone conclusion that she'll be the one axed.

Which just goes to show how rigged this show is to begin with. Not that I ever doubted that.

The rigga morris of Gigi not being in the Bottom 2 again last night is real, but at least it means we got that lip sync from Jackie. Love her.

Jackie's lipsync was really good.  Widow, was only doing an angry rehash of her debate.   Brita and Jan got on my nerves, and now Jackie has stepped up  since they're gone.  She goes on and on.  I have to tune her out.

Yeah, as much as I thought Gigi was clearly in the bottom, I'm glad we got to see Jackie lipsync. It was everything I needed.

I am really tiring of Jackie's constant bitching and moaning about the treatment of Middle Easterners in America while standing in a room half filled with African Americans. 

Really?

Her lip-synch was good, but she needs to knock it on the head now.

I thought the bottom 2 were easily Gigi and Sherry, I guess their runways saved them.

Widow wasn't particularly funny, but her performance was good, she'd clearly put some thought into it and she at least had a proper character.

Back to something actually worthy of our time and attention, Jaida Essence Hall, you guys. That debate performance was ridiculously funny. She went for stupid and she nailed it. I’m so happy she’s having such a good showing now that we’re at the halfway mark.

Jaida is an absolute star. When the queens were announced I was really only excited for Sherry (and honestly, she'd be my pick if I didn't know what I know) but now however many episodes in, I'll go ahead and say I think this is the strongest cast in years.

Jaida, Crystal and Jackie my top. But I'd also replace any of them with Heidi cause she's just a pure gem.

Gigi jinxed herself when she said the Rupaul will never see her in the bottom again, I think that she will go home next week.  Was very surprised seeing Jeff Goldblum cry at the lip sync.  My pick for top three should be Heidi, Jackie and Crystal...until something horrible happens in the next few weeks...

I know I'm in the wrong, but I wish they didn't edit out Sherry Pie so much because it's hard to tell where everyone places. 

I LOVED Jada this week. She was hilarious, and I've always enjoyed her confessionals, but I hope this means she will bring it from now on. 

After watching "the Pit Stop" on YouTube/WOW, I'm curious that Bob and Detox thought that Widow was the standout? I've always liked her, and I didn't think she awful. It's so hard with the editing but I thought Sherry Pie and Gigi both brought the same trick over and over again, and it was boring.

I feel like Gigi has played  the same robotic character at least four times: Snatch Game, Her Commercial, Her Debate and the kitty girl mini challenge.
Surprised this hasn't been called out more.

Gigi and Sherry should've been the bottom 2, but then Jackie wouldn't have got her big 'moment' they've been leading up to since Ep 1.

What a great episode! Truly could have gone so many different ways.

I’m thrilled Jaida won again. She was great on her own, but she did a great job whipping her superfan into shape and she gets bonus points for pairing everyone up so well. That being said, I would’ve easily given the win to Crystal. That look was immediately iconic and it was way more creative than anything else on the stage.

I’m happy for the double save as well. They rarely feel earned, but I think Heidi and Jackie were on equal footing with the lip sync. I wouldn’t have known who to send home, but I definitely would’ve been more upset to see Heidi leave.

Good Ep.

Heidi had a BAD week, great lip-synch tho.

Crystal should've won, but Jaida was good as well.

Sherry was ZZZZZ same thing every week.

GiGi needs to pick her game up and lose the 'tude.

Don't think Jackie deserved her save, but hey what you gonna do.

Jaida should have been merely safe, that's one of the least justified wins ever.  The win should have gone to the Pie or to Crystal.  

And Gigi is on thin ice.

I agree that Crystal should have won. How often do we see people on that show take HUGE risks like that? Never. She deserved to be rewarded for that.
