Greg and Blaine are hauling water, as Greg interviews that his Blue team is going to continue working even though they're currently in the Upper Class. Ah, but here are his teammates Natasha (13, from Florida) and Migle (also 13, from Illinois, pronounced "me-GLAY," apparently) , who seem to be working only on lying in their bunks and talking about the stuff they miss at home. In separate interviews, they freely admit that that's pretty much all they're doing. Alex makes another insightful comment, saying that Natasha and Migle have been compared to Paris and Nicole, but he claims he doesn't know what that means. If that's true, that one comment has given me more hope for the future than anything else that's happened all season. All this shirking on the girls' part is getting on Greg and Blaine's nerves, so they pull their Council leader Anjay aside to talk about it. And what they're considering doing is throwing the next Showdown so Natasha and Migle can do toilets and garbage. Anjay doesn't like the idea, since they'd have to work too, after all. Greg agrees to see how the girls do today, and to go warn them what they're thinking. So he and Blaine go do that, while Anjay sits out the meeting. The mark of a true leader is knowing when to delegate, you know. The girls seem to have known that some kind of come-to-Jesus meeting was coming, but they weren't expecting to have Greg threaten to hang a lost Showdown around their necks. Migle interviews that she doesn't want that to happen and find herself being hated. Wait, isn't this the part of the reality show where the person says they didn't come here to make friends? Apparently not.
So here's a weird moment. Savannah is coming back from the water pump with a freshly filled canteen. Leaning against a wagon, Alex thoughtfully watches her approach, and goes up to meet her. In itself, not much to comment there, until you notice that (a) there's some acoustic late-CW-episode sad romance music playing, implying that these two are a love that can never be, and (b) Alex has one tooth. Fortunately for my sensibilities, he only wants to talk to her about how she's doing. Savannah interviews that she misses her sister the most, and her mom and dad. I can't decide if I do or don't hope that Savannah also has a brother at home. Alex makes a direct appeal to Savannah, saying that the Kentucky dinner was really good, and that Savannah makes a positive contribution to the town. Savannah interviews that she misses home, but it would be hard to say goodbye to everyone, and she doesn't know what to do. This is still an issue for people after the halfway point?
