The morning of Day 34 dawns, and some little animal that looks like the head of a mouse and the body of a slug -- seriously, what is that thing? -- is trying in vain to remain on a rock as the water tries to wash him off. Twila is still looking rough, sort of stomping around camp and not wanting to talk to anyone. Julie's comments that Twila was feeling "insecurity" over what she had done are, again, certainly spot-on -- that's what I meant last week about Ami being very good at intentionally finding and twisting the knives that are going to hurt people the most. Just because Twila effectively got rid of Ami doesn't mean that Ami didn't do a good job of putting a scar on her, just as Ami intended to do. Twila is a single mom; Ami disparaged her as a mother, just as she disparaged Scout's sexual identity. Ami's very skilled at finding the thing that's going to be most painful to say and saying it, and the fact that she didn't keep herself in the game doesn't undo what she did, unfortunately. Anyway, Twila and Eliza exchange "morning"s, and Eliza whispers to Julie, "Why is she so mad?" "'Cause of her issue," Julie says. Wow, sharp. And specific. "She's holding a grudge," Eliza says. Julie agrees thusly: "Against herself, towards us, mostly towards you." A what? Can I get a schematic diagram on that, possibly? Because that's going to take a lot of arrows. As Twila continues to walk around not talking to anyone, Chris interviews that he knew this entire sequence of events was not good for the plan. Twila was alienating Julie and Eliza, and Chris didn't want to see anything upset the four-person alliance that he's still hoping to take into the final four. "[Twila's] taking a road she doesn't need to take," he says. And then we watch Twila spit a mighty mouthful of water onto the ground. Which is pretty nasty, but I can't really complain, because I suspect it's hard not having a toothbrush, and whatever grunge you can take off your teeth with water, it's not like I can blame you.
Julie and Eliza take a walk in the woods together, and Julie asks Eliza why it would be bad to vote off Twila and keep Julie. "I don't know," Eliza says simply. "Just from your perspective, your position," Julie presses. "I don't know," Eliza says again, and then she adds, "I don't think it would." Eliza interviews that she "would definitely consider making a deal with Julie" if she thought it would get her further. Showing off the mark on her forehead that she's going to have on and off throughout this episode, which makes it look like she got slingshotted between the eyes with a red-hot marble or has been marked by a cult for future indoctrination, Eliza adds that, sometimes, you have to be willing to abandon your alliances to improve your position. Eliza tells Julie that she should probably talk to Chris herself, since he seems to "feel close to" Julie, and Julie agrees. Eliza asks Julie not to tell Chris that Eliza agreed to anything, but just to tell him that Eliza suggested Julie talk to him. Julie interviews that Eliza has made it clear that her primary loyalty is to Chris, so if he isn't willing to go along with a plan to get rid of Twila, Eliza won't go along with it. Boy, everything Julie is wearing over that cranberry bikini certainly is getting tattered. Including her headwrap-buff, which makes her look more washerwoman-like every week.
