Hayama's dish look like it achieve a double whammy reaction from Leonora. She "strip" her broken japanese while having a semi-naked foodgasm.
Dojima seem to favor Hayama's dish. I can't tell who Leonora will vote for but if she chooses Ryou and if Souma gets Grampa whats-his-name Nakiri's vote then it'll be a tie. Alice and Erina may need to step in and be the tie-breaker judges. That is how I think will go down in this match.
The only way this 'tie-outcome' would be acceptable, IMO, is by each of the contestants getting a vote each, & the winner will be decided by Erina, as:
>Alice cannot cast her vote due to a 'conflict of interest'
>Erina, with her God's Tongue, would be seen as a 'better' & more 'impartial' indicator
O, the irony should she cast her vote for Souma.
Then again, I wasn't a big fan of the final having 3 judges for 3 contestants, especially with them not using the score-based format. Perhaps the author letting Erina & Alice near the judges' table is a foreshadowing of things to come (the tie-outcome).
Let's hope this arc doesn't drag on any longer; its getting stale & repetitive IMO.
