Watch Ra'Jah O'Hara, Trinity K. Bonet, Ginger Minj, and Kylie Sonique Love freak out when they get a full breakdown of the AS6 "game within a game" lip-sync smackdown twist.

The RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 6 game within a game is here and it's sending the queens' stress levels higher than Laganja Estranja backstage at a gig.

EW's exclusive sneak peek at episode 10's first act sees the final four queens composing themselves in the Werk Room after Eureka's emotional elimination (a lipstick tally reveals that Ra'Jah O'Hara, Trinity K. Bonet, Kylie Sonique Love, and Ginger Minj all voted for the season 10 alum to go home), but the celebration soon gets the chop as well when Carson Kressley appears on the monitor with some groundbreaking news.

"Welcome to RuPaul's Secret RuDemption Lip-Sync Smackdown: The game within a game! A competition so big, it's been nine weeks in the making," Kressley says as the queens watch on in horror. "[It's] a competition so secret, you had no clue it was even happening; A competition so earth-shattering, its winner could knock you off your path to the Drag Race Hall of Fame!"

Ra'Jah isn't pleased with the news, telling viewers in a confessional that she "should've read the contract a little bit more" before re-entering the competition.

"This is a bunch of f---ing bulls---," Trinity jokes. "I done came here to turn this motherf---er out, and they telling me they're about to do a motherf------ redemption? F--- that! They gave me 30 minutes to bask in the god damned glory!"

The preview ends as Trinity bows her head in prayer while the rest of the shocked queens' eyes get bigger and bigger — a hilarious process that's soundtracked by Ra'Jah gently crooning "Oh, no ma'am, no ma'am!" with vocal excellence.

Kressley's explanation comes after weeks of speculation as to what the game could be. To this point, the only clues fans were given came at the tail end of each episode, as each eliminated queen — including Serena ChaChaJiggly CalienteSilky Nutmeg GanacheYara SofiaScarlet EnvyA'Keria C. DavenportJanPandora Boxx, and Eureka — was told to prepare for a shot at redemption after they exited the main stage.
