That night, Mike and Anjay talk about who they're going to give the Gold Star to. They're leaning toward Sophia, but then they go get Laurel, who's still impressed with Michael. As for Taylor's input, they're just hoping she doesn't decide to leave tomorrow. Taylor obligingly gives a little interview that tells us that's very much up in the air.
More commercials, including one for a new kids' movie, one for yeast infections, a repeat of an earlier Sears spot, and several more promos for CBS shows. Hey, at least CBS didn't pull its own ads, right?
When we come back, it's presumably the morning of Day 5 and Jimmy's going jackrabbit-hunting with rocks with a couple of other younger kids, Cody (nine, Yellow, from Ohio) and Campbell (I don't know). Michael voices a hope that a successful hunt will motivate Jimmy to stay. We don't find out, but at least the other two kids encourage him to stick around and see how it turns out. "You're already going jackrabbit-hunting with ten-year-olds," Cody reminds him. It sounds so cool coming from a nine-year-old. And then a few girls come over the hill giggling, and the boys scamper off in the opposite direction like Dennis the Menace times three.
Jonathan rings a bell summoning all of the kids to the barn that's serving as their Town Hall. The kids all sit on benches, while the Council members take up color-coded (of course) seats behind a table at the head of the room. Mallory interviews that she hopes everyone will be nice to each other. "No yelling and/or cursing," she specifies. Once everyone's settled in, Jonathan -- trying to be an informal presence by standing to one side at the front of the room -- explains that the Town Hall meetings are for everyone to talk about what's on their minds. First, Jonathan asks for a show of hands to see who's happy with the job the Council is doing. A clear majority raises their hands. Jonathan asks the opposite question, and Sophia raises her hand in the front row. She stands up to complain about the dishes not getting done. At the Council's table, Taylor whispers something catty about Sophia to Mike, because Taylor is ten. Several of the kids on the Yellow team speak up in their own defense, and Taylor says they're doing their best. Mike gives an insightful interview about his reaction to Sophia's thoughts: "Shut! Up!" Sophia may have a point, but the kitchen isn't really her problem any more. Just let the Yellow team slack on the dishes and have nothing to serve the next meal on, and the whole camp will know whom to blame.
