Terry rather ridiculously interviews that he has "no doubt" that they would have "tons of fish" if they had the spear. Of course, not everyone with a spear has always had tons of fish, and if Terry really felt that way, he could have gone out with the spear himself. The only thing I fault Sally for at all is that she should maybe have practiced in shallow water, but again, that's something anyone on the tribe could have suggested. If you agree that somebody is going to go out and try the spear and do her best, then if it gets lost by accident, then it's not like you can act like it's a character flaw. It's the kind of thing blowhards like Rupert love to get all pissy about, on the theory that they never make mistakes, ever. Furthermore, they have other fishing equipment, so if Terry is so fucking brilliant with fish, he should go out and catch some. In other words, this definitely made me like Terry less, even though I completely understand that he's frustrated. Being a tough guy doesn't make it okay for you to be a jerk, Tom Cruise characters.
Immunity challenge time. Jeff brings the tribes out to a beach. There, he asks how they're doing. Misty talks about how her team is trying to be upbeat and so forth, not getting down on themselves and down on their situation. Jeff turns to Casaya, and Shane immediately starts ranting that the situation is so dire, and that he's not going to pretend it isn't, and that the idea of pretending you're doing great to intimidate the other tribe is so bogus. Honestly, I think that other people just aren't as completely undone by the horror that is DAY 6 as Shane is. "Physically, we're wrecked," Shane insists. Again, not everybody is suffering from nicotine withdrawal so severe that it could knock down chimneys, so Shane should probably speak for himself.
Jeff's like, "Anyway," and moves on to the explanation of the challenge, embarrassed for the male sex that Shane is being such a weenie. He explains that this challenge will "test your ability to work together while transporting a giant zombie head from the ocean to the beach." Yes, Jeff Probst just said "giant zombie head." Say it to yourself a few times. Giant zombie head! Giant zombie head! Giant zombie head! And...I'm sorry, but aren't zombies sort of...fictional? How can Survivor claim to have possession of the head of a zombie? Is it made of Styrofoam? I find this confusing. I don't mean to be the person who's like, "Is it a real zombie head?," but I'm trying to figure out what to make of that.
