Let's go tribe-by-tribe, shall we?
At Matsing, after his scare at Tribal, Russell vows to step back and let others take the lead. Hasn't he said that before? Meanwhile, Malcolm and Angie are snuggling for "warmth" and it's making their tribemates suspicious that they are allied. Roxy goes all out trying to convince the others that they need to ditch Angie as soon as they can. The only problem is that Roxy isn't doing much work around camp, and she's having an emotional breakdown over the weather conditions, so people are eyeing her for possible elimination.
On Tandang, RC finds the Hidden Immunity Clue, so now all three tribes have found the clues. RC shows it to Abi but no one else. Later, Abi gets suspicious of RC and Skupin, and the formerly strong female alliance seems to have some cracks. Lisa is not fitting in with the tribe, and she knows it. While everyone else bonds, she goes off to get some alone time, and the others all assume she's looking for the Idol, and agree to ditch her as soon as possible. Except she was really sitting alone, crying.
Meanwhile, over on Kalabaw, Penner is frustrated because he wants to look around camp for the Idol, but the rain is keeping his tribe in the shelter so he can't look. The rest of his tribe goes to hang out in a cave to try to stay dry and Penner furiously searches, but then he gets busted and makes up a lame story. Penner finally gets another chance and realizes what some people in the forums noticed long ago -- there is a wooden piece on top of the rice basket that seems suspicious. Penner pries it up and he's got the Idol. Although that seems lame, because won't people notice that piece is missing?
The Immunity Challenge involves two people at a time pulling a sled to retrieve puzzle pieces and then they all solve the giant tile-based puzzle with the help of a caller up on a perch. The winners get blankets, pillows, and a tarp along with Immunity. The second place tribe gets a tarp and Immunity. Third place gets bupkes again.
Pulling the sleds turns out to be exhausting for everyone, and because Matsing has fewer men, they seem to bear the brunt of it, and end up having the men pull the sleds while the women push. As usual with these multi-step challenges, it doesn't really matter as long as they stay close, and everything evens up while solving the puzzles. Denise tells Malcolm and Russell what to do, while Lisa has the honors for RC and Pete on Tandang. Dana is allegedly the caller for Kalabaw, but Penner and Jeff Kent stop listening to her and try solving on their own, until they run into trouble and realize she might have an advantage since she has an overhead view, so they start listening. Lisa ends up leading Tandang to the win, and I hope they give her credit for it, because that's two puzzles that she's solved for her tribe. It's a close battle for second, but Kalabaw pulls it out at the end, and it seems that Dana was a big part of the win.
Russell is frustrated after losing the challenge, and he's most upset with Roxy and Angie who he feels didn't contribute. Roxy continues her vendetta against Angie. At Tribal, Roxy says that she thinks they do too much work at camp and it's affecting their energy at challenges. Everyone else is like, "We have to have wood, fire, water, and food to survive and also do well at challenges." Duh. Angie gives a pageant-y answer to a question from Probst and Malcolm pretends like it's a normal answer, so that gets them into the question of Malcolm and Angie's cuddling and possible alliance. Roxy puts it all on front street and states why she thinks Angie needs to go home, and Angie doesn't seem to understand that this is a real threat, not just from Roxy, but from everyone. So whom does the tribe choose when it all comes down to it? They vote out Roxy, but Angie had better watch her back, because I think she's next on the list.
Matsing. Immediately after Tribal Council. Russell tells the others that he was worried he was going to be voted out, and no one denies it. Russell interviews that he knows his chief-like actions annoyed the others, so his strategy now is to step back and let the others win or lose on their own. Didn't he say he was going to do that before? I don't know if he's capable of doing that. Malcolm's solution to the whole business is to avoid going to Tribal Council again. Seems like a good plan, although as with Russell, I don't know if they'll be able to follow through.
That night, the Matsing members are sleeping on their really uncomfortable looking shelter floor. Angie cuddles up to Malcolm, and it honestly does look innocent, or at least mostly innocent. I mean, they both have their faces covered up and all hands are on deck, so to speak. Angie interviews that it was just for warmth, and Malcolm interviews that he keeps reminding himself not to get "booty blinded." So I guess it's more innocent for Angie than Malcolm. It seems like on other seasons, the whole tribe just slept in a heap and there were all kinds of snuggling going on. Roxy wakes up and sees what's going on, and describes it in an interview as "full-on cuddling" and decides that Angie has set "literally a booby trap." You can tell she's really proud of herself for that line. Anyway, Roxy doesn't want to see a couple for strategic purposes, and she declares that they need to vote one of those two out.
Tandang. The tribe is trying to keep their things dry in the face of frequent rainstorms. RC sticks her hand in the bag of rice to see if it's getting moldy and finds the Hidden Immunity clue, but Lisa is right there, so RC can't do anything about it. Finally, Lisa wanders off and RC digs out the clue. Abi walks up and sees RC digging in the rice, and RC tells her to meet her by the well and she'll show her. They meet up and read the clue together. It's not really clear if Abi busted RC or what. It seems like she did. Abi and RC agree to keep the existence of the clue a secret. RC interviews that she hopes sharing the clue is proof that their alliance is strong. It's also proof that Abi busted you and you really had no choice, though, right? Abi interviews that she did totally bust RC finding the clue, and that she still feels like she needs to be careful.
Cut to RC and Skupin on the beach. Skupin has a new cut and RC is examining it. Abi is swimming and creepily watching them, and she stalks up and demands to know what they were talking about. RC and Skupin claim that they were talking about the rain, and it seems like they were, but Abi isn't buying it, and vows in an interview that if RC screws her over, she's dead to Abi. Cut to Abi and RC alone on the beach, and Abi is just laying into RC about how close she is getting to Mike. RC's defense is that she likes Mike and she likes talking to him. Abi accuses RC of changing conversations when people join her and Mike, which is an obvious sign that they're talking strategy. RC insists again that she's being loyal to Abi, and Abi has no proof that's not true. Abi very sternly says that if RC fucks her over, they're done. I think Abi thinks she's on Real Housewives of Philippines because who talks like that on day four? RC rolls her eyes and is obviously wondering about the wisdom of forming an alliance with a crazy person that she only knew for half a day.
