Glenn shows up in the lab to judge the Foundation Challenge and totally freaks everybody out. Their assignment, inspired by the upcoming Insidious: Chapter 2, is to create female demons out of male models. Rick catches Glenn's eye with his strong graphics, but it's Roy's vacu-formed female face that catches the win.
McKenzie stands before a glittering carousel and delivers the details of this week's challenge: In teams of two, they'll create whimsical interpretations of famous characters from Mother Goose rhymes. But this isn't any ordinary week - not one, but two competitors will be going home in this double-elimination round.
The contestants get to pick their own partners this week and Roy, who's been wanting to work with RJ since he saw him on season 2, calls out his name immediately. RJ says, "It's good to be loved!" Indeed.
Adolfo and Lyma had a crisis when trying to open the mold for their Humpty-Dumpty-meets-Lady-Gaga makeup, but Adolfo pulled through and managed to get it in great shape. They tag-team on painting to create a makeup that winds up in the top looks.
Miranda and Tate chose "Peter, Pumpkin Eater" as their inspiration. They made Peter's wife into a pumpkin woman who, initially, was pretty scary and not so whimsical, but after some guidance from Michael Westmore, Miranda turned the face into something truly charming.
Frank and Laura decide to make Miss Muffett's tale all about the spider, but they fall short of the whimsical requirement and wind up in bottom looks. Surprisingly, the judges were not fond of the sculpture or paint job, two aspects at which Laura usually excels.
Eric and Rick chose a rhyme about a crooked man, but when their character comes out twisted and disturbing, the judges place the makeup in bottom looks. Both Eric and Rick are sent home in this double elimination round, but the judges make a special point of how tough the competition already is, and how they should both have a great deal of pride. Rick faces his future with no regrets, while Eric seems to have a note more sorrow at his second departure from the show.
