We then followed the girls on a field trip to an abandoned motel—the vibe is creepy, the lens filer desaturated. RuPual informs us that the only three things surviving the RuPocalypse are cockroaches, Cher and drag-queen zombies.
I think the producers made up that last one, but let’s run with it.
Out come hordes of drag-queen zombies from former seasons (look, it’s Pandora Boxx!) holding the supplies that our girls needed to make their post-apocalyptic couture.
Project Runway take note—Mood has nothing on drag queens looting their materials from the undead.
Chaos ensues: Sharon Needles blends right in.
In the end, the girls make it out alive. Then, almost out of nowhere, Shangela appeared and was eaten by the zombies. Hallelu!
Once they return to the workroom, the queens see it’s been stocked with more supplies. They scramble to grab camouflage, netting, gas masks and other Armageddon accessories. Eventually everyone settles into their workstation, where Lashauwn worries about how to start making her “post apoc-a-lock-tick outfit.”
After some sewing and hot gluing, RuPaul comes in to evaluate: The Princess is told to start over (she made a pink ballerina dress), Jiggly Caliente constructs a baked potato with siren shoulder pads (but not in a good way) and Latrice Royale reveals that she went to prison for eighteen months for “doing some stupid things.”
Note to self: Never mess with Latrice.
The next day in the workroom sees some bonding moments: Latrice tries to boost Lashauwn’s confidence and Milan consoles Jiggly about the loss of his mom. By then, The Princess had magically conjured a nautical outfit and compliments Sharon Needles on her sexy “meth look.” Oh, and Alisa Summers reveals she got a DUI once.
Note to self: Never take a ride from Alisa Summers.
