We're spared equally bad imitations of the rest of the tribe, as we join Sook Jai fumbling around in the dark on their way back from the Council. In an interview, Penny says it was hard to vote Erin out because now they have only three people compared to Chuay Gahn's five. If you were expecting her to say that voting Erin out was hard because they were such good friends, or because it meant breaking an alliance, then you're clueless about Penny -- or, as I now like to call her, "Penniless." The members of Sook Jai agree that it was a tough day before confessing their love for each other and hugging. Penny looks very small compared to Ken and Jake. And she is small in my opinion, but not just in the physical sense. Jake tells us that they're still two separate tribes, and that Sook Jai needs to figure out how to win future challenges in order to resume control of the vote. He says they'll have to fight for everything they get at this point. As opposed to lolling around and waiting for it to be handed to them along with the fruit and cheese and crackers and such. As Chuay Gahn hears them approaching, Ted proclaims, "Your questions shall be answered in a short second...survey says!" The tribe remains expressionless as Sook Jai reveals that Erin was voted off. Clay asks how she "took it," and Jake responds that they all took it hard; he doesn't want to return to Tribal Council. Penny thanks Chuay Gahn for waiting up and apologizes because they had to go through the process with them. Jake adds, "Thank you guys for mourning with us." Considering that at least one member of this tribe has thus far mourned a dead baby bat and the previous night's dinner, it's not saying much. Jake announces that he doesn't know if he's tired or depressed because of losing another person. In a typically self-serving statement, Penny again states her difficulty in voting Erin out. This time, she says it was hard because she lost her sleeping partner. Now she'll have to find another set of pillows, and I challenge her to find a tribemate so appropriately constructed as Erin.
