LCK--Ep #12--1/23/13 (Spoilers)

Sorry, I had to start this just to say, "Woohoo!!!" If someone wants to fill in the blanks, that would be great but I had to get it off my chest.

  1. Yes, this was a challenge about consistency. Each of them had to make 10 identical dishes using a salmon that they butchered themselves. I was suprised at how genial Kristin was towards Josie as they road in the car to buy the salmon at the Pike Place Market. I would have been sullenly snearing at her. Tom was unhappy with the way they both butchered the salmon, and Josie managed to lose one piece of salmon in its trip from the stove to the dishes. There was a sadistic gleam in Tom's eye when he talked about how all of Josie's salmon was cooked identically -- they were all identically overcooked. Kristin served hers with some raisins, which was the only element that Tom complained about -- he felt that she hadn't had enough time to plump them throughly. It was a foregone conclusion that Kristin would win. Kristin HAD to win, otherwise leigons of Top Chef fans would have stormed the Bravo baricades and had Andy Cohen's head on a stick.

        so you don't think she'll get back in as a fan favorite? :)

          I live in fear of that . . . thousands of viewers trying to be funny.

        2. I haven't followed it at all, but according to wiki CJ beat Kuniko in the "save a chef" battle. While I don't necessarily like CJ more than her (didn't see enough of her, but she seemed nice), I approve of this result. If someone is going to get a chance to get back in WITHOUT beating folks through cooking (and instead winning popularity contests), I'd rather it be someone who HAS beaten a lot of folks with his cooking.

          1. Yup, it's all over. Check this out:




            I *almost* feel a bit of sympathy. Well, okay, not really.

              I didn't see too much mean stuff on my quick perusal there. Some guy Michael sure is rooting for her, but I can't be bothered to tweet about this stuff.

              I was wondering how Josie didn't know she dropped a piece of fish before counting the # of plates that were ready to go.

              1. re: Joanie

                Sorry, probably should have been more specific. Nothing mean in those areas; rather, when I posted, Josie's stream had literally 5 tweets, and CJ already had hundreds.

                Even now, you can easily see that CJ is getting an order of magnitude more votes. Makes sense.
