With the sounds of Rock M. Sakura‘s sobs continue to echoing all through the workroom, Friday’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race (VH1, 8/7c) kicks off with the remaining 11 queens taking inventory of what the tuck just occurred. And until we’re reading through far too far into their exchanges (we’re not), a handful of the women seem to be gunning for Aiden Zhane.
Brita receives the ball rolling in TVLine’s special sneak peek, expressing her remorse in excess of sending Rock property although greatly implying that Aiden “did the bare minimal and skated by again.” Heidi N. Closet is the only queen to talk in Aiden’s protection, saying that she sees a fireplace in her — to which Widow Von’Du replies, “a candle!” Damn.
When Aiden reminds the other queens of her inexperience, she’s interrupted by Jaida Essence Corridor, who delivers a piece of assistance: “You can not afford to make excuses for your self.”
Commencing to perception that the other queens are ganging up on her, Aiden tells the digital camera, “I really don’t care who you are or what popularity you have. If the judges aren’t seeing what they want to see from you… bitch, bye!”
The drama proceeds when RuPaul announces this week’s maxi obstacle — a production of TV’s most popular professional medical drama, Gay’s Anatomy. A capsule-themed guessing video game puts Gigi Goode and Nicky Doll in charge of casting, which turns out to be a rather sleek method.
Perfectly, apart from for Aiden. Not only does she not get the component she would like, but Gigi and Nicky’s suggestion that she’d be “good at playing a ghost” arrives across as inadvertent shade. Aiden plainly isn’t thrilled about haunting the competition, but if you check with me, it is the most evident casting in the obstacle.
And if you ask Jaida, it is “going to be a s–t clearly show.”
