Day Thirty. The Gauntlet. Meal Break. 3:00 PM. Whitlow and Wolf sit on the ground and eat MREs. Wolf asks whether Whitlow can believe the day's almost over. Whitlow says that she is "counting the hours" until it's over. Whitlow says, "The Gauntlet has been the best, although it's also been the worst." Whitlow voice-overs something about continuing to learn and bettering herself as an individual. DI McSweeney jokes with them about warming up the food in the sun, which clearly doesn't work. Wolf cracks that he burned his tongue, because the food was so hot. Wolf voice-overs something else about learning. Apparently, this is the "learning and growing" segment of the episode. And the "eating gross food" segment as well. Whitlow feeds Wolf something out of her meal. Whitlow hopes they get "some type of sleep" before Dismissal Hill. Wolf mentions that "Katherine's not voting," and it's good because "she didn't deserve it." The home viewers are like, "Who? Oh, the chick who quit the first day."
That introduces the segments with the voters. Moretty says that she's going to decide at the last minute who to vote for. Thomson thinks that Whitlow and Wolf are the same person, so it's hard to decide who was worse. Hutak says that Wolf's "true colors came out, probably about halfway through," and that "the harness and the D-ring incident didn't shed a good light on him." So, now we know that the voters don't know what we know -- that Moretty was the one who lost her D-ring, not Wolf. That will be important later, so keep it in mind. Flashback to Yaney doing pushups as punishment for the squad losing the equipment. DI Rosenbum explains that Moretty handed her D-ring to Wolf, who put it down in the tunnel because he had other things going on. When they exited the tunnels, there was a lot of confusion and Moretty grabbed Wolf's harness. Wolf grabbed Yaney's harness. Yaney had no harness. Moretty's harness was left in the tunnel. DI Rosenbum says that everyone is pointing the finger at Wolf, but "Moretty, Yaney, and Wolf, all share some responsibility." That's true, but it's not exactly the story they gave us when it happened. I sense some revisionism going on. Whitlow asks Wolf whether he's going back to school after boot camp, and he says that if he wins half a million dollars, he thinks it's okay to take a semester off. I wish they had done an interview where the people told us what they would do with the money. Like we know Jackson wanted to buy his girlfriend an engagement ring. What would Wolf and Whitlow do?
