The three finalists get some more help to deal with the twist thrown at them at the end of the last episode. It’s back to the lab to get everything ready then off for the final movie shoots with Patrick Tatopoulos. Results ahead.

Michael Westmore and Patrick Tatopoulos visit the lab and give some advice as the finalists work on their final designs. During the shooting Glenn, Ve and Neville are on set to observe. The finalists also have to roll with director’s on-the-spot changes.

Team Evan adds Libby and make a fully infected evolved Creature (top image) to join his Captive and Wanderer (above) for his short film Quarantine Zone.


Team Ben adds Jason. While his Creature and Priest look good, the added Victim character does not work as well on his film Resurrection.



Team Nora adds Ricky and have to make an intimidating Ally of the Hunted character to face the Hunter in her film The Prey.

I don’t think it’s much of a surprise when Nora is crowned the winner. She earned it and I hope she has a long and successful career.

When I first started watching Face Off I knew nothing about the world of make-up artists. I learned a lot from this final challenge and have even more appreciation for what the make-up people do. This is an episode worth watching for those who just read my recaps if you have any interest in what happens behind the scenes of a movie or TV filming. And as always, you can see galleries of this week’s designs, the contestants’ previous work and previous seasons here.
