I admit I didn't watch the whole episode tonight as far as the behind the scenes stuff that goes on before the reveal, but I did watch the exhibition of the monsters and the stunt show.
Laura's and Nicole's good witches were stunning, and their monsters I feel were overall good. Laura's monster was a little too yellow for my liking and Nicole's has the issue with the horns - they don't look like sea life. I think she'd been better with maybe something along the lines of a seahorse ear or something.
Derek's - the Fire Witch looked like Darth Maul in a female version and the Demon was just bad in my opinion - it looked fake.
What really bugged me is that the judges seemed to be overall favorable to both of Derek's designs and not the demons of the two women.
But honestly - a WOMAN should win this season. I will be happy with either of them winning, because both put their heart and soul into those designs tonight and they really were stunning. And yes, this is the first time if Nicole were to win over Laura that I will not be unhappy a returned contestant wins, becasue she has earned it.
