'RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 4': Fans React to Dramatic Episode

Friday night (Dec. 21) was an emotional rollercoaster for RuPaul’s Drag Race fans; the night’s episode was a lot to process.

The All Stars 4 queens were divided into two teams and were tasked with writing lyrics, recording songs and creating choreography for their competing girls groups. They also had to incorporate returning artist-in-residence Stacy Layne Matthews -- affectionately known as Henney -- into their performances.

As if that wasn’t enough, Gia Gunn decided it was an appropriate time to rehash old beef with competitor Farrah Moan. The two had a falling out a few months prior to filming and Gia claimed she wanted to resolve it. Her method of resolution is a bit questionable, as she approached Farrah to tell her that, according to her teammates, she’s the weakest link. Farrah handles it well, serving Gia an already-iconic comeback: “Some of us don’t have to force storylines to get their air-time.”

After the teams perform their girl group routines, Monét X Change and Valentina are declared the top two, with the latter winning a lip-sync showdown to "Into You" by Ariana (a perfectly suitable bop, but a missed opportunity when both Ciara and Kacey Musgraves are sitting in as guest judges!).

Valentina is given the power to send one of the week’s bottom two -- Farrah or Monique Heart -- packing, ultimately choosing the Vegas showgirl. As Farrah exists, Gia attempts to apologize, giving Farrah the opportunity to use her memorable season 9 catchphrase, “You don’t love me,” before she sashays away.

Per usual, fans of the show had a lot to say about the episode. Here are our favorite reactions to the night’s episode.
