Because we need filler this week, we head on over to Exile Island, where Ozzy plays dumb as he and Alexis follow the clues. He tells us he wants to "find" the immunity idol so he can see whether or not someone took his fake one. He and Alexis make their way to the final resting spot, and Ozzy checks under the rock and finds the immunity idol is gone. "Someone's taken the bait!" he cheers, rubbing his hands together in glee. "Who's it gonna be?" he wonders; "who's gonna be tricked by Ozzy?" Honestly, Ozzy, don't think you're so awesome. It's more like the person who found the fake idol is so dumb.
Back at Malakal, Cirie and Amanda hang out on a log and wonder why they suck so bad at challenges. Cirie says she feels bad for Erik, as he'll be leaving now, but not bad enough to, you know, let him stay. Erik uses the last of his Ozzy-knowledge to climb a tree and get some coconuts. He tells us he wants to stay in this game very badly and claims to have seen this show so many times. Too bad it was apparently the same episode each time, and that episode wasn't a very good one. It kills him that he's thisclose to making the merge and now he's going home. "All the fans are dead in the tribe. All the favorites have the control," he says. Well you did vote out some of those fans, didn't you? Oops! "I'm pretty desperate right now," he says.
And in this desperation, he goes to Cirie and Amanda and asks them if they trust Ami. "Why?" Amanda asks. Erik says Ami's been trying to make an alliance with the fans since Joel's ouster. He tells them everything Ami's tried to do so far. Even though none of those plans ever happened, she did try. And she spilled the beans to Erik about all the alliances that were in the game, like hers with Yau-Man. As Ami emerges from some bushes wearing what looks suspiciously like a medic-provided Ace bandage around her knee, Erik says he likes Ami and doesn't want to hurt her, but he wants to stay in the game even more. He tells the girls he'll be voting for Ami tonight and hopes they do as well. "But after the merge you're just gonna go right back to Airai," Amanda says. Erik says Ami will do the same thing. Cirie tells us she doesn't know who to trust, as Ami walks up behind Erik. Cirie continues that Erik would say anything to stay in the game, while Ami has proven "time and time again" that she can't be trusted, especially not by Cirie. Ami walks past them and turns back, sensing she could be in trouble. She limps over with a smile plastered on her face and asks Erik if he's been telling them "everything." Amanda and Cirie are having a blast watching these two people fight for their game lives. They're having a little bit too much fun, actually. Stop gloating, you two.
