I have been dying to get to this episode all day. Right when I had the time to recap, my cable box started acting hinky and I was freaking out that something might happen to my recording of this show. It is almost over and I am going to miss it so much.
After pissing in the creek upstream while Gina was drinking last week, Cody is about to take things to a whole new level. Let’s do this. Whatever it takes to get Alex and Gina off the island works for me.
We begin with the good people refusing to carry the flare case. I say leave it with them, they are going to need it. Cody gives mean-spirited speech about the good people’s shallow empty lives living in the trailer park to point out they really can’t afford to turn down $100,000. Especially since the idiots TORN UP THE MONEY last week. I can’t stress the stupidity of that move enough. It’s one thing to Fuck team Makody on the way out. I could see that happening. But if your plan is to go to the end, you are basically tearing up your own money. Team Makody could be eaten by bears or something and their dumbasses might win by default. Now they are going to hike to the next camp and forfeit the $100K. Because they are
idiots the good people. Alex and Gina say they are not in it for the money. Gina ironically says “Karma is a bitch.” in her confessional. The good people see absolutely not relationship to they way they treated Team Makody, particularly Makani, the entire game and how those choices are effecting them now that they have no power. Gina carried nothing but the machete.
There is no time limit on the walk. Because there is no money to be won. They all make it to the next camp. Since they left the flares behind, in order to self-evacuate they must make a fire with a five foot flame. Um, the good people can’t do that. Sucks to be them. The water source is bad, and Team Makody is in possession of the pot. Makani wants to set up the tent close to the good people rather than closer to the beach due to tides. Cody vetoes that idea. The next morning, Alex steals Mankani’s tender pouch. Cody blames Makani for losing it. This is going to cause a huge fracture in their team. I really need asshole Cody to channel that behavior to the good people and leave Makani alone.
I was really starting to worry about Team Makody but Alex just drank unboiled water. Let’s hope it is full of parasites. In other news, since they left the flair box with the phone, they cannot buy anything else. If they had thought about that, all they would have said to Gina is, “If you don’t carry the box, you can never order peanut butter again, even if one of us leaves the game.” Also, they can’t call the medic if Alex gets sick from the water. And if he is sick, how does he build a fire?
The terrible people, have been ordering rice and carrots instead of pizza buffets the entire time. So they have food left while the good people are starving. Awww. At least they have that deck of cards. It’s time for Alex and Gina to whine. Meanwhile, the terrible people plan to crap in the water source once they have had enough to drink.
It’s Makani’s turn for a temptation. If Team Makody doesn’t pack up every single thing of theirs and take it with them, they are idiots. Oh! Apparently the reason they didn’t slash up the good people’s tent last week when they were on temptation, is because you can’t mess with the other camp when they are at temptation. YAY!
After the temptation, both of the evil people crap in the water source. Alex drinks it the next morning. Then Gina does as well. Here is the thing. Lots of things crap in that water. I am not confident in this plan, but I give the evil people an A for effort.
It’s time for the challenge. Alex actually asks if the teams are the same. He so wants to dump Gina. Alex and Gina have an early lead. In this case, slow and steady wins the race. Team Makody wins reward. It’s tons of food. Alex is back to wanting to tap out. Cody considers sharing food with the good people. Makani says, “Oh hell no.”
Meanwhile, Alex realizes that the water source is contaminated. I suspect producer input. I am not sure they could allow them to knowingly drink poop water. Or maybe they can? I do think a producer probably strongly suggested not drinking the water. They decide to drink salt water from the ocean.
The have one final journey to the next camp. Gina barely makes it while carrying nothing. In order for Team Makody to split the money alone, either Alex and Gina are going to have to get sick from the bad water, or Cody is going to have to skin them and cook them on an open fire. I’d prefer the latter option.
It would be REALLY great if they make it to the end and the money they ripped up is deducted from Alex and Gina’s share. That would be perfect karma.
