I have been trying since this episode aired to get things settled enough to watch it and unfortunately higher priorities for the site continued to thwart my desires to watch. Now Mother Nature is trying to hamper things as we have severe weather today expected to be worse tonight. So if the doom and gloom weathermen are correct and we are all going to die, I’ll be damned if I die before I see Team Makody exact some harsh revenge on the two surviving good people.
It is day 24 four on the island. There is $288,250 dollars in the kitty and I guarantee it will stay that way now that the good people can’t order CiCi’s Pizza Buffet for $20K every week. Let the suffering begin.
We start with the Alex and Gina talking about now that they have lost two players they will have to do twice the work. It doesn’t seem to occur to them that Cody and Makani have been self-sufficient for weeks ever since they refused to share food and shelter with them and cast them aside as “evil.” Something tells me they are going to start thinking they are just great people to work with now.
We start with a race to the next camp. Alex is already telling the drone that they have to go at a pace Gina can go at because she literally has to be carried to every new site. Um no, Gina can drown in the river if necessary. Give her the flare with her name on it and head off. They have 90 minutes to make a fairly treacherous mile and a half. Cody, who is way nicer than me doesn’t want Gina to drown in the river. So he helps her cross the river in high tide. Cody has 40 plus pounds of cash on his shoulders. This is the most treacherous hike they have had and they are running out of time and they are not even close. But they make it.
Cody and Alex talk. Cody wants to cut the dead weight, starting with Gina. Alex offers her up on a silver platter if he will take him on his temptation. It’s been hours since Alex has a full pizza to himself. Alex is lying to Cody. Cody is lying to Alex. Cody tells Alex in front of Makani that he is not taking him on his temptation and assets that his loyalty is to Makani. Alex asks about the food order. Cody says there will be no money spent on food. Period. The evil team has been conservative with their peanut butter so they still have plenty to eat. The good people have already stolen their peanut butter in the past, so Makani says they need to guard their food. Before Cody even has time to return to the tent, the good people have eaten all of the peanut butter.
Before Cody and Makani even realize their peanut butter is gone, they vote for no food and buy a huge backpack to help carry the money. Alex agrees on the backpack. Gina just whines about peanut butter while peanut butter is still on her breath. She says she is not carrying anything on the next move. I don’t think they care. She probably won’t be there and she doesn’t carry anything anyway.
Alex and Gina try to keep Cody and Makani from having water. They complain about how horrible Cody and Makani are to justify all their shitty behavior. Because they are, after all the good people and that makes their treatment of the guy who just saved Gina from drowning all perfectly acceptable to them.
Cody takes Makani on the temptation which is not just tons of food but beer, wine, champagne, an overnight stay on the yacht with a shower and a bed. They are so happy.
As team Makody revel in luxury, Alex is ready to flare again. He is literally giving his goodbye speech.
The plan is to cut Alex and Gina off from water and food entirely. But first the have a challenge with the opportunity to win up to $75,000. Production will drop four boxes of money of various sizes in the water. They have to all work together to retrieve the boxes. The smallest box has $5K which is not even enough to cover Gina’s peanut butter habit. The largest box has $30K which the good people would love to use to buy three pizzas for just the two of them. They go for and retrieve the largest box first and then get the $15K box. So they earned back a week of good people splurging.
Immediately after the win, Cody takes the pot, the flint and all the supplies. Yes. Makani and Cody say they have not forgotten how they treated them, and now it’s time for payback.
I’m dying here because my recording cut off before the preview. Did anyone see the preview?
