Time passes. Jon shifts position. He tries a couple of alternate stances to try to alleviate the pain. We reach two hours and forty-five minutes. Lill's sweaty, but she's okay. Jon? Not so much. Shortly, he stumbles onto his side, and Lill takes home immunity.
Okay, look. Lill drove me up the freaking wall all season long. The melodrama, the whining, the worrying, the "tell me what to do," the blah blah blah and the blee blee blee and the crying about everything...she drove me up. The. Wall. Having said that, the way she just finished driving a nail through the heart of Jon -- an arrogant asshole whom I could not have abided in the final two or especially as the winner -- made up for about half of my dislike for her. The way he tried to deal with her, shaking and sweating, and the way she just kept telling him to fuck off? God, that was brilliant. The way he tried to get her to let him off the hook -- just trust him one more time -- "If you give me immunity, I'll take you to the final two" -- and the way she essentially told him to go stuff it in his dead grandmother? That was one of the greatest moments in this show's history, as far as I'm concerned. Lill's beating Jon, fair and square, in a physical endurance immunity challenge? That's why people love this show. Because you just never know. It thrilled me. It was brilliant. Slag Lill all you want, and I'll join in happily, but there will always be a little square of my reality-television-viewer's heart that's marked off with velvet ropes where you can pay a nominal fee to drop by and visit the moment when the scoutmaster tested and ultimately bested the most ignorant, boring fuckwit they've ever thrown at the audience. You want to be a wrestling phenom, Jon? Start by figuring out how not to get your pansy ass handed to you by middle-aged ladies in sneakers who can't read Pete Rose quotes without bursting into tears, okay?
Lill swims over to Jeff, as Sandra tries to smile, sure that she is done for. To her credit, Sandra continues trying to send warm smiles to Lill, knowing that Lill has just had a huge moment, even though I think Sandra quite logically believes that there's no chance Lill is taking her to the final two.
