I love the word "penultimate." So forgive me if I use it repeatedly in reference to tonight's commenter live-blog, which is the penultimate posting party for the penultimate episode of this season. Let's just hope it's not the penultimate Project Runway episode of all time. (C'mon Harvey — get all those lawyers together in a room and make it work!) At 9 pm Eastern, it'll be time for this penultimalooza to get started. Then penultimania will break loose! (If either of those words becomes popular, just remember that I coined them here, OK?) Until then, let's revisit a few highlights from last week:
- Making the final four must be a tragic experience, because the finalists cried like little babies. Presumably, as the previously eliminated designers watched this episode, they felt a deep sympathy for the finalists' sad fate, tinged with relief that they avoided a similar one.
- For the botanical challenge, every commenter predicted Kenley would do a floral print. But she used what looked like some kind of reptile skin instead.
- The judges, apparently entranced by whatever Santería spell Kenley cast over her reptile before she killed and skinned it to construct her garment, decided to let her stay another week, along with everyone else. (It was the old "nobody loses" trick — or what I like to call a "rip-auf.")
