Laney is deeply homesick and her head is not entirely in the game. She tries her best, but can't find her usual inspiration. The following morning, she leaves a note saying she's exiting the competition and going home.
Miranda is embarrassed not only by the fact that she enlisted the help of her model, but also that she sent a poorly conceptualized, unfinished makeup onto the stage. She is certain she'll be going home tonight.
The judges found Tate's weaving of his rune - immortality - into the regenerative aspect of his makeup to be genius. His touch with the charred, flaking skin was beautiful as well as frightening, and he wins this challenge.
The judges have an incredibly hard decision tonight with the wild card of Laney's departure. In a sense, she eliminated herself, but they are hesitant to let a substandard makeup progress onto the next round. After a tense moment with Roy and Miranda, they announce that no one will go home.
