The drag queens were required to divide into pairs to perform a musical adaption of a scene from any John Waters movie.

The teams rehearsed their adaptations in front of Michelle Visage and she gave them feedback on their performances. Trixie said she needed to show the judges that voting her off the show previously was something she didn’t deserve. Once again, Pearl was told she wasn’t putting enough energy into her performance.
