Because of the critiques final week, Nicky Doll feels pressured to point out her persona.
Finally, RuPaul enters the Werk Room and shares what the maxi problem is: a well timed play on well being and the drama of Grey’s Anatomy.

Gigi and Nicky Doll get the containers with pink drugs, which means they resolve the forged record.
Gigi and Nicky don’t wish to be shady, although. They take heed to what everybody says to attempt to be honest, however Aiden and Widow find yourself with roles they didn’t need. I imply, Aiden is a ghost… is that shade? As for Widow, she needed one thing extra severe — on RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Viewers catch a glimpse into the rehearsal course of and the walkthrough with Ru. The primary feeling is Aiden is upset with Gigi and Nicky, Brita is upset as a result of she has to work with Aiden once more, and Widow is upset as a result of she has to work with Nicky Doll once more. No matter. It’s time for the problem and the ladies head for the set.
