Constructed or not, this episode was genuinely great at setting up all the possible future plotlines of the series: how will Sum deal with sending home Vinegar? How long will the Baga-Vivienne axis last? Will Crystal try to get close to them? Will they let her? Is there going to be drama with a newly legitimised Divina? What's the role of Blu in all this: goner or wild card? In this sense, putting Cheryl in the bottom 3 is understandable but so heavy ended that it stops being enjoyable. It's clear the more she struggles the more her possible redemption will be stronger, but they couldn't even be arsed to properly justify it. Her critiques basically amounted to "you went safe for something that's not your strongest suit and you did good enough", pretty rich with a damn metal diaper going around backstage.
