Fleming closed in October 2010, 5 months after airing of the episode. Yelp reviews after the filming are mixed. Many of the regular customers didn’t like Gordon’s changes. There have been some claims that the show is fake after the filming of this episode and Andy claimed he spent very little time with Gordon.
When Gordon returns that evening, he discovers a dead mouse just inside the restaurant’s front door. James and Shelly accuse Chef Ramsay of planting the rodent in the kitchen and Gordon walks out. James follows Gordon and apologises to him and persuades him to stay.

Ramsay feels your pain. The popular show that launched Ramsay’s TV career ended in 2014 in part because Ramsay was tired of the restaurants he fixed reverting back to their old ways and failing (which may explain why so many of the restaurants closed since their episodes aired!).
