The prey teams talk about who to vote out. The black team kind of sucks, and the blue team has been pretty awful but now they're at a huge physical disadvantage for the next hunt. Rob wondered if it's too soon to vote out the villains (I say yes because we need them like Jacob needs fake-birthday cake). Everyone also pointed out that Shane never said anything outright rude to them, maybe it was kind of funny? He's almost sympathetic when he's injured.
Shane argued that the teams should look at them not as the blue devils, but as the "blue angels with a broken wing almost," still not realizing they should play up his injury even more, tone down the dickishness, and argue that they exist as a free pass for another team. Like, watch an episode of Survivor or two and educate yourselves, blue team.
Eric is even dumber than Shane, though. He said he really likes everyone, except pretty much everyone. He then went down the line and tells Nick to come out of the closet, the white team that they need counseling, and the green team to "read a little more," which caused even the black team to gasp. Shane looked at Eric and shook his head, muttering, "bite your tongue." Remorse is a dish best served live.
When it was time to vote, the white team went first, slamming their talon down on blue's side asking, "what's black without blue?" and turning around as Shane wondered, "what does that mean?" Oh my god, Shane, you're killing it. The gold team voted for blue, offering condolences to Shane and "good luck" to Eric. The scorned green team also voted for the blue team.
James, my hero and imaginary best friend, took the opportunity to make a speech, "Eric, our parents taught us to kill our bullies with kindness and in this competition we did just that. Then you ended up taking our kindness for granted and you took advantage of it. You expected Rebecca to give you her food every morning, so this is for you, Eric. We sabotaged you!" He let Rebecca place the final talon on the blue team's side, eliminating them to the other prey teams' cheers. It was the best moment of my television watching summer. I watched it several times.
