Cut to Cecile and Will on their date, which consists of a surrey ride -- a horse pulling around some kind of covered carriage. Cecile looks like she's having a great time. In interviews, she and Will both say they had a great time and really hit it off. Cecile says they have a lot in common and talked about sports. Will: she's beautiful. Cecile: he's funny. They actually do look like they're having a good time here. It's too bad we already know Cecile's a total drama queen. In an interview, Cecile says she feels more comfortable with Will than she has with anyone else so far, so "a romantic involvement is possible."
Commercials. Barry Bonds and Jason Alexander again. John Doe, this fall on FOX. No, thank you.
That night. We watch Cecile getting ready for dinner. New Tim shows up and comes in and says, "I have news," but we never find out what he means since Cecile just hides in the bathroom and tells him she's getting dressed. In an interview, he says he went by to get her twice and she blew him off; he adds that it's not the first time that's happened to him, and "it probably won't be the last." Such shining optimism! Back to Cecile's cabin, where, for a guy who says he has plenty of experience being blown off, New Tim sure takes a long time to get the hint, as he stands there for about half an hour in her doorway and even after he asks, "Should I just leave now?" and Cecile says "yeah" he STILL DOESN'T LEAVE and keeps trying to talk to her until she finally just yells, "I'll see you at dinner!" and he leaves. In an interview, New Tim says that Cecile obviously thinks he's a nice enough guy, so he's just wondering where things are going.
Foiled in his attempt to get Cecile out of hiding, Tim sits down at the bar with Will and grills him on their date, asking him what he and Cecile did. Will, being friendly enough, says they went on a surrey ride and had a lot of fun. "Am I out or am I in?" says New Tim, causing Will to make this "dude, chill" gesture and say, "I don't know; we didn't discuss that." Will tries to keep it light, but New Tim isn't having any of that. "How did you feel, though?" he asks, and Will says, "I had a good time," and then just nods his head in that "yep, yep, yep" way people do when they have obviously no idea what to say to the weird freak next to them. Wing Chun does it to me all the time. New Tim points out that he and Will both picked the same woman. Then Will says, "The best man's gonna win," and he points at himself, which made me laugh, actually. Then he tries to make it clear he's only kidding, since New Tim seems to be taking this so seriously. In an interview, Will says that he's not out to steal anyone's woman, even though that's pretty much exactly what he's supposed to do, but he's right when he says the competitiveness is coming mostly from New Tim. In an interview, New Tim says, "I thought Cecile and I were grooving fairly well." Yeah, you guys looked like you were "grooving" when she bitched about Old Tim for three and a half hours and when she didn't want to be left alone with you and when she blew you off a couple of times. Anyway, New Tim's not sure whether he said or did anything to put her off. We watch Cecile hugging Rebekah from behind while Tim talks to them. Cecile looks like a big leech on Rebekah's back. She voices over that "Tim continues to dig a hole for himself every time he opens his mouth." She says he said something she considered odd: that he wanted to drink out of her shoe. She found New Tim's obviously-meant-to-be-romantic comment odd because she was wearing "open-toed sandals." I find it odd that Tim would make that sort of comment so soon in a relationship. I also find it odd that Cecile's wearing open-toed sandals in Alaska while it's still cold out. Anyway, Cecile says it made her uncomfortable. Then Andrea is telling everyone it's time to eat. Why is it always Andrea who does that?
