Alex, Edgardo, and Mookie go for a boat ride, and Alex tells Edgardo that Mookie blabbed about the idol to "Dreamz." Unsurprisingly, Edgardo does not react with enthusiasm. Mookie assures him that it makes no difference -- they're getting rid of Boo first. Edgardo interviews that the idol has to be kept between "three or two people" in order for it to be effective, totally ignoring the fact that ownership of the idol was pretty much known by everyone last season, and it didn't hurt, you know, the guy who won. Edgardo insists to Mookie and Alex that if "Dreamz" knows, then Cassandra knows and Earl knows. Alex insists that the simplest way to do this is to start by getting rid of Boo, then pull Stacy in with them, and then they have five. Mookie reluctantly agrees, but he talks in an interview about how the original idea was to get rid of Stacy after Boo, and now Alex wants Stacy on the team. He's well aware that this serves Alex and Edgardo, but not him, because they have this bond with Stacy and he doesn't. So obviously, you get to five people left, you know that Mookie and "Dreamz" are the ones Alex thinks will go. What I don't understand is why this didn't occur to "Dreamz" earlier, when they were all getting their assignments, and Alex agreed to try to bring Stacy over. You'd think "Dreamz" would have gotten it then.
After commercials, we return to Bula Bula, now on Day 24. Earl and Cassandra have a conversation in which he tells her that she's "the most popular girl" at camp, because nobody really knows whom she's with. Come to think of it, that is one of the ways you get popular in high school. Michelle, too. Cassandra explains that her alliance is with Earl and Yau Man, and Earl kind of comes with Michelle. She also seems pretty convinced that she can connect up with "Dreamz." Earl interviews that he was perfectly okay with the merge, because it kind of let the game really get going.
