Peachy says, "At Day Twenty-Nine, what is there to say? Nobody's happy for anybody else when they win the immunity challenge. At this point, nobody's safe on that stage, everybody knows that. This is go-for-broke-time." He tells us that the game is designed to show how much they've learned on the island. They are to gather driftwood, light a torch from the water, carry it back, and burn through a rope raised above their driftwood pile. As they start their piling, Kelly knocks Sean over and pushes him out of her way, which just must be pent-up aggression because there's definitely enough wood to go around. Everyone else is sort of maniacally piling wood, but Rich is very careful and methodical about stacking his for height. In the second phase, Gervase reaches fire first, but his torch must have gotten wet because he can't seem to light it. Colleen doesn't even look like she's trying -- she's just wading through the water and looking pretty. Rich is back with fire well before everyone else, and that's the end of that. Gervase is still lagging behind because his torch won't light. Peachy says, "You got plenty of time, Gervase," just as Gervase gets to the beach and approaches his wood pile, but the torch goes out again, so Gerv rolls his eyes and heads back into the water. Rich burns through his rope first, and the little jig he does has reached mythological proportions -- nothing I say will do it justice now. He continues to gloat and rub it in, and everyone pretends to look happy for him except Rudy, who shakes his head and looks disgusted. We then see a shot of a dejected-looking Gervase walking up the beach with his head hanging down. At this point, the camera pans back to the bonfire area, which has been paid a little visit by Foreshadowing, which has come and gone and spelled out "So Long, Gervase" in Target citronella torches across the beach.
At camp, The Someone's Getting Kicked Off Sonata plays as we see various candidates. Gervase tells us Rich is insufferable since winning and to "watch the arrogance and the swagger." Gervase tells us he doesn't know "for a fact" that there's an alliance, but that he's "a smart guy." Kelly says she talked to Colleen and they agree that "this sucks," particularly for Colleen and Gervase, who know they're going next. We then see Gervase and Colleen making costumes for Tribal Council: Gervase is now Bullseye and Colleen is Sitting Duck. Colleen's drawing of a little duck is almost as cute as she is. Never too far from a hammock, Gervase tells us that "they can get rid of me in three votes," but that if the two of them work on Kelly, they can swing things. He seems to think Sean is on their side. Kelly says, "I wish something exciting would happen, something shocking, that no one expects." My guess is that every one of the seven knew exactly what was going to happen, but every viewer in America was shocked. I don't think that's exactly what she meant, though. Meanwhile, an island storm is brewing, and everyone's in their rain slickers except Talking Rudy Doll, who has only one outfit which includes white socks rolled up to his neck. Rich stands out in the rain and happily tells us, "Kelly cut her own throat tonight. It's a wonderful thing," which sounds pretty malicious if you ask me. He says that Kelly tried to align herself with the Pagongers and that he can tell something else is going on. Sue and Kelly then discuss that they both see right through her. They're like Gargamel and Azrael. Rich says to us, "It'll be interesting…she could have consequences. We haven't decided yet. We…hmm." And I think this is his snarky way of saying there's not "we," just a "me." And at this point, we're tipped off to the fact that Kelly is definitely not leaving this week, because we're supposed to think she is.
As Rattana arrives at Tribal Council, we see that the jury now includes a very pissed off-looking Jenna, who was happily reunited with her cosmetics case, as well as with her beauties, after having been voted off last week. Peachy, who always kicks a man when he's down, says that Sean's vote "resulted in Jenna being ejected" last week; we then cut over to a shot of Jenna glaring at him. I totally don't get how Sean is the one at fault for Jenna's leaving. A lot of other people voted for her too, so why aren't they being blamed as well? No one there hasn't cast a vote for Jenna at one time or another -- well, maybe Kelly hasn't, but still. Sean responds that the others implored him to "get some balls" and vote his conscience, and that's what he'll do from now on. Peachy then asks Kelly what her voting strategy is, and she says it's based on "who's competition and who's pissing me off," which gets a chuckle from the other castaways. Colleen announces that she's "just waiting," and that this conclusion is based on "eyes and ears and alliances and non-alliances." When asked if there's an alliance, Sue launches into her campaign platform for a pro-alliance society and rambles on and on about politics and church membership and connections and insurance agents and real estate, and although she takes a while getting there, she does have a point. She says that Tagi lived together, built a home together, and made friendships, so of course they'll have formed connections. She adds, "This is just a chess game. It's the way life goes," and I'm thinking Sue has probably not had a particularly easy life. Peachy then calls out Richard, who dodges the question once again by saying he doesn't know if there's a way to break the alliance because he has no idea who is trustworthy and who isn't. As the voting begins, Gervase votes for Sean because "for a smart guy, he has no common sense, no brains in his head really when it comes down to it, so Sean really deserves this vote." Sue picks up her pen and says, "Hmm. How do you spell it? He's a nice guy, best of luck. But, I'm tired of gettin' beat at the competitions. So." She votes for "Gervis," and seems pretty earnest in her choice. Rich stumbles up to the vote and grins. Colleen says she thinks Sean was "pretty pathetic," and that he's "a putz," and in an instance of perfect editing, we cut to a shot of Idiot Seanvant grinning like, well, an idiot. Peachy returns from "counting" and reads the votes: Sean, Sean, Gervase, Gervase, Gervase, Gervase. Most of our castaways do fairly well on the spelling. Peachy doesn't bother to read the last vote this time, and Gervase brings over his staff to be extinguished. Peachy tells the group they're now down to six, because most of them can't count that high.
