Order in the court because the time has come to strut back into the pink workroom with the walls made out of fabric and it’s time to sit down and talk about what goes on in the wild and wonderful world of drag. Specifically in the world of Drag Race, a world where even when the show is over and everything is filmed, we still get so much drama from the cast that it’s honestly amazing. Hell, isn’t the season 3 cast due to create some drama now? Anyway, let’s get into it and go through the major elements of the show in this new structure of recap (Let’s see how long I keep this structure up)
Well hasn’t this been an interesting week in the fandom of Drag Race. While we were still recovering from the glorious second episode we had someone leak the entire third episode… who Wow is probably hunting down right now with a spoon so they can extract painful vengeance upon them. It was certainly a fun thing to see people replying directly to tweets by the cast “We already saw the episode”, because I’m sure VH1 and Wow love being told directly that the episode they worked hard on got leaked and reminded of that hourly. But, since it was leaked, I can now assume everyone saw it a few dozen times and I don’t have to do this.
Wait, I do? Oh right, I decided to actually try and make this into something so I have to do it. OK, here we go.
It’s that time again. That time in the season where we separate the tops from the bottoms, the time when we see who is a queen and who is just a man in a dress, the time when we get our first clear idea of who the hell is going to be the top 4 of the season. It’s time for us to play the Snatch Game… but first, let me talk about last week.
Sometimes I worry that Drag Race is so desperate to get to the end that they rush things, they just want that grand finale with the big fancy theatre and the multiple endings so badly that they’ll just rush through everything else… which is why this week with 11 queens they decided to throw a Ball, something that is normally saved for the top 5 episode because it makes it easier to whittle it down to the top 4.
Every single week I keep being shocked at just how good this season is. This is the shot in the arm that this show needed, for 10 years in the game it’s nice to see that this show still has everything that we need it to have and it’s so good to see it.
Can you believe that it’s only the second episode and already it’s clear how much of an improvement this season is? Season 10 wanted to celebrate a decade of Drag Race and they’re doing that. There is not a dull moment to be found here and I’m living for all of it. I’m living, I’m dying, I need medication to help me cope with it all. Let’s talk about some of the highlights this week.
Oh god, are we back already? It’s not even been a full week and already there’s more Drag Race. I’m going to be completely honest, I was wiped out after All Stars 3. The finale of that season put me in a funk, I felt like all my enthusiasm had been torn from my body and I was just going to be a withered husk of a human being until about midway through the season. Baby, Season 10’s premiere episode revived me, renewed me, rejuvenated me and returned me to the bubbly effervescent being you’re reading right now. You might not be able to see it but I promise you that, right now, I’m lactating with excitement for this season.
