At the bottom, Blair says that he did it in seven minutes, so if everyone gets a move on, then they all should be able to make it to the finish line in time. Above, Sophia tells Jisela that it's not that bad. As if, like, Jisela is suddenly going to stop crying and go, "Oh really? Now that you told me it's not that bad, I'm no longer scared." Jisela's bottom lip quivers. Sophia says that the boys are below and the ropes are safe and "nothing is going to happen." CLS clamps her in saying, "All right, sweetheart. Are you ready for Freddy?" Hee, all butchering English colloquialisms. Adam laughs half-heartedly, but no one else does. Adam is going to be going down with Jisela, which sounds disappointingly dirtier than it is.
Jisela edges out on the rock, and everyone mumbles encouragements, and Jisela is full-on weeping, and someone says she's a warrior, and she cries, and the B/M Crackhouse Editing Staff gives us a flash of the view from the first mission's helicopter, and Jisela cries as Spaniards touch her and, okay, on that I don't blame her. More weeping. Finally she says, "I can't do it." Everyone says that she can. CLS whispers and Jisela is about to go. Suddenly, she once again starts saying she can't do it and you know she's serious when her voice gets a little more street and she says, "Fuck y'all, I can't do this shit." Okay, mission's over. Fo' sho'. She keeps yelling that her life is more important than this, and Sophia is trying to tell her the first part is the scariest, and Jisela says that she can't help it if they don't care about their lives but she does! And..."To be continued..." Fuck. You know, it's just like when I was a kid and the Fonz was about to jump the shark and I was all excited, sitting like an inch away from the screen, and suddenly it froze and said, "To be continued..." I just remember the sheer anger and frustration and disbelief. So this is very much like that, except without any of the emotions.
Next week: up on the mountain, Jisyella reverts to the self we all know and dislike when she more strongly insists she's not going. Sophia floats that this is going to look bad to the group (ya think?), and that she might have to say goodbye to her friend. CLS asks a sitting Jisela whether she wants to go, and tries to encourage her, but Jisela just shakes her head. Ellen, somehow at the bottom now, says that they've all been told she's not going, but they're still hoping she is. And that's it.
Well. Crap...except for Ellen crying and Jisela crying. I think people should just cry more. Maybe if Steve wept he'd get some friggin' screen time.
