“If you’re not wearing nails, then you’re not doing drag,” says drag queen Alaska of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Bob the Drag Queen leads a group of fierce queens as Desna Simms, a nail salon owner-turned-money launderer played by Niecy Nash. She’s joined by Gia Gunn, Jinkx Monsoon, Alyssa Edwards, and Valentina, who reenact crucial season 1 scenes.
Nash offered her own recap to EW earlier this month.
“Season 1 was all about Desna trying to get out from under the Dixie Mafia, but now she’s leaning in,” Nash said. “One of the women from the Russian Mafia is a new mentor and is putting her on a fast track to becoming a queenpin.”
Monsoon as Polly — Desna’s loyal friend played by Carrie Preston — is the true scene-stealer. She gets straight to the point about just how intense things are in Manatee County.
“Congratulations, I’m scared sh—less,” Monsoon says in the clip.
Claws airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on TNT. Check out the recap video above.
