Back to the village. Lord. The kids are now dressed in "traditional" garb, with complex face painting. Msaada looks good and happy and right, but the others just look wrong. They dance around with villagers. Vu says, "Now, we are going to slaughter an ox." Shot of what looks like a cow. Close enough, Vu. Man, she's sure working her way up the food chain. If this goes on long enough, perhaps she'll say, "Now, we are going to slaughter a Bunim-Murray grip." Wait, or is a grip for Bunim-Murray really higher on the food chain than a cow? That's debatable. In Hollywood it certainly isn't. The cow has to die so the kids can read the "bones." This better be one hell of a bone-throwing session. James better be able to tell me who's going to win the AL West after all this killing. Kathryn voice-overs, quite sensibly, if over-dramatically, that if she were against killing animals, she'd be a vegetarian. (Or as Linda McCartney used to say so annoyingly, "A veggie!") Actually, a few short weeks ago, Kathryn was a La-tarian. "But still at the same time," continues Kathryn. "It's a difficult thing to watch." So is your show, honey. So is your show. Msaada then busts out that while she's here she is going to "bend [herself] to their ways;" she's not going to judge these people in their own land for their own practices. I agree. You shouldn't judge people when you're in their country. Except for the French. Everyone dances. James dances. I remember after the preview last week, it looked as though James was going to be slaughtered in this episode. That dream seems so far away from here. So far.
