It was so great to see Michael's door open! Of course, it was pretty obvious who the best chef was at that point but they built up the suspense pretty well. What a relief! It also was great that Gordon Ramsay offered Michael a job in London so he could really get finished up on his training. After that, he'll be able to open a restaurant with no problems anyway.
Watching the show I really was struck by the fact that the head chef really did have to be very aggressive to make the team pull together. That was made obvious by watching Michael's team. He was so soft-spoken and nice that he had to get pretty upset to start snapping (which was the nicest snapping I've ever seen) ... but that was when they started getting it together.
Altogether a very satisfactory ending to a pretty good show.
