    It sounded like Sam's and Gerald's celery dishes were equally good (except for Gerald's misshapen 'dipping dots'), so I'm not surprised that Tom kept Sam. LCK is more interesting when someone with a following makes a marathon run, like Kristen (and CJ before her) or Louis. But Sam has 11 more rounds to go -- no one has come close to a run like that.

    What a roller coaster. First Jim (who I loved) beat Sylvia (who I also loved), and then Jamie (who I think is okay but I wouldn't say I love) beat Jim.

    We need a LAST Last Chance Kitchen for this season.

    Yes, I loved both Jim and Sylvie. I hope they have a redemption season with all returning chefs instead of half and half so maybe these two have a chance to come back.

    HJamie is rough --- you can tell he's been through it. I love a compelling back story and will be routing for the (forever) recovering heroine addict.

    Phew! Jamie bested Katsuji (who seemed visibly humbled, maybe he knew what an ass he had been the last challenge).

    Still missing Jim though.

    oh SNAP...

    Katsuji: "I'm a member of MENSA."
    Sam: "No. You're a member of NAMBLA!"

    I haven't even finished watching Jamie vs. Emily yet, and it's already the funniest LCK of the season.

    Why do you need to put salt on a salad? Jaime won without it, but was criticized for not grabbing it from the pantry. Why can't you enjoy the watermelon and tomato without sprinkling salt?

    Emily had salt and used it, but her dish was muddled with indecision so she lost.

    I remember Tom saying on one episode that salt doesn't just add saltiness, but helps amplify the other flavors as well.

    Whether that's true or it's just the emporer's new spice, I don't know.
