Matthew announces, "Your buddy!" as the discussion turns to HeiDDi. Jenna doesn't want to talk about it, because it'll make her cry. Hearing people says good things about HeiDDi makes me want to cry, too. Not that it happens very often. In a clip, HeiDDi smiles in a way she thinks is winning.
Matthew then moves on to "[his] buddy, Butch." He enjoyed Butch's company, and credits his hard work. Butch does the Elbows and Knees Shuffle in a brief clip.
Next is a clip of Rob smiling beatifically while wearing the immunity necklace. Matthew says he owes Rob, and begins to explain why, but the sound trails off. This must have been some boring footage if that's all we get for the "Fallen Comrades" portion of the episode this season. Either the bulk of the S16 are bores or -- and this is the more likely conclusion -- the S2 themselves are bores.
As the camera pans over the names written on the side of a crate, Jenna tells us, "And that sums up fourteen people!" She says they never would have met each other in real life, and that the process of remembering them was closure to a chapter in their lives that won't ever really be closed, but at least will be bookmarked and closed for the time being.
Still water. A bird successfully stands on a perch without wobbling, falling off, or dropping its headdress. Matthew fishes and voice-overs that it feels great that the strategic part of the game is over. Tinkly music plays as he adds that it's been an "incredible evolution" for him to go from being the underdog with "everyone gunning for [him] at every corner," and eventually learn how to build strategy and make it to the final two. He concludes, "It's almost absurd...but somehow I did it."
What's more absurd is that Jenna made it, too. She picks up rotten fruit and voice-overs that, at the age of twenty-one, she's the youngest player and hasn't quite realized what it means to be there. She claims to have worked hard, and feels honored. Making the final two is the biggest accomplishment in her game and in her life, and it hasn't yet sunk in.
Matthew crams his hand into the mouth of a fish as he voice-overs that he's ecstatic to have made it to the final two. We see that they each get their own fish as he continues explaining that although there was luck involved, there was also strategy. He then reveals that he "threw" the final immunity challenge, and fell off the perch "on purpose." For someone who uses expressions like "above the canopy" and "rolling green carpets," and "weed-choked river," his choice of the words "on purpose" is surprising. In any case, he tells us he was convinced that whoever won would select him, and it was a huge risk, but reflected his schooling from Rob, whom he calls a "mastermind" in the game.
