We next see the S10 fully shackled and waddling into their cages. For no other reason than the fact that they had to have been told to do so, they hang on the bars like you see in movies. I'm surprised they're not banging on the bars with pots, and enacting prison rape scenes. They continue to hop around while Peachy gleefully reports that rain is coming. He promises, "The faster you get out, the faster you get dry." As the S10 beings the key-retrieval process, Peachy narrates such pertinent remarks as, "Ken, making a play for a key," and "Brian, time to make something happen for Chuay Gahn." Luckily, we don't see every key as it's retrieved -- nor, for that matter, do we get corresponding commentary from Peachy -- although we do see that Shii Devil is working very hard. The scene goes from sunny to rainy to sunny again as the time-lapse clouds roll by. Clay urges his tribe to use their shoelaces, which Peachy thinks is "ingenuity at work!" Brian and Penny each drop a key, but only Penny mouths, "Oh, fuck." It's a very close race to the end. Penny has slid through Sook Jai's bars for better reach, and Shii Devil has as well. This challenge is biased against the fatties! Suddenly, they're tied with fourteen keys each. They both manage to drop them, but Chuay Gahn recovers its key first while Sook Jai is still struggling. Peachy tells Chuay Gahn that they can now start digging, and proclaims, "Chuay Gahn's gonna have to dig a pretty big hole for Big Ted." He tells Sook Jai that they're still in it. Chuay Gahn digs and digs; Helen's the first to attempt to slide out. She's half in and half out and it looks very uncomfortable. The others get out without event until Ted, who screams and grunts his way out of the hole. They anxiously run over to Peachy, who counts up their keys and confirms that they do indeed have fifteen. As the tribe members hug each other, Ted swipes at Clay's face. Sook Jai, still caged, looks dismayed. Peachy congratulates their effort, but reminds them that they will still have to vote someone out.
