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.
Meanwhile (you know, I have no idea if it's "meanwhile" -- this could be fucking days from now for all B/M can be trusted with a timeline), Laterrian and Theo -- or "Blacker and the Cracker" as their TV show might be named -- ask some guys to tell them how to reach the waterfalls. Theo wisely tries to bridge the language gap simply by making sure to over-enunciate the "t" in "waterfalls." It doesn't work. He next tries the worst miming I've seen since my epileptic Uncle Marty tried to do "trapped in a box" for my fifth birthday party. Laterrian simply points and the guys wave them in the right direction. Mannheim Steamroller lends some really peaceful and evocative tracks from their upcoming Arbor Day album to provide background for L.T. and Theo's hike up to the waterfalls. They arrive at some beautiful, very tall waterfalls, and Laterrian utters a timeless and intensely quotable phrase to commemorate the moment and to really put it all into perspective: "Wow. Look at...uh. All the, um...rainbows, yo." There are five rainbows, and Theo and L.T. stand next to each other looking up at them, and Theo wonders silently if James would be mad if he kissed Laterrian; the moment is just too perfect to pass up.
