Credits. Hey, look! It's James and Jean-Robert on the jury! This has to be one of the beefiest juries ever. This jury would totally win a tug-of-war against other juries. And that would be a much more interesting way to spend the jury's part of the finale, although it would take away from James's dagger-glaring time.
We return to Hae Da Fung on Day 31. It's raining hard on the already-saturated camp, and there's water pooled everywhere. The tribe is huddled in their little cave, and surprisingly, they're collaborating on a little song that appears to be called "Cave Dwellers." (Good movie!) Todd interviews that he is extremely "miserable" and constantly thinking about home. He rubs his little beard and says that he's "so close" to being done. He reminds us that he is in an alliance consisting of himself, Amanda, Courtney, and Denise. The idea is to get rid of Erik and Peih-Gee, but no one is completely trustworthy. No one! "If they turn on me, it would be a very smart move on their part to get rid of me now," says Todd. "Of course, I'm not going to tell them that." I don't know if luxury items are allowed anymore, but I think if they are, Todd clearly brought the book, Mwah-Hah-Hah: Sayings To Twirl Your Mustache By (and possibly the companion volume, How To Grow Big-Boy Facial Hair When You Look Twelve).
Challenge field. Looks like a big round maze with a platform in the middle. Everyone comes and lines up. They sure are wearing a lot of red this season. Jeff promises that the challenge is "about speed and communication." In the challenge, you'll be in teams of two, and each team member will be separated from the other at the ends of a maze, and you have to find your way to your teammate. And you'll both be blindfolded, of course. And then Jeff says, "All right. Erik, you're going to be paired up with your mom." Amanda puts her hand to her mouth as they all realize what the deal is here. Erik's mom is cute as a button, mom-wise, and she comes over to see him. They hug. "Is this really happening?" Erik wonders. Aw. She's happy just to see him, but you can see all her OH MY GOD HE'S SO SKINNY buttons flashing. "Lookit you!" she says, and Erik says, "Yeeeeah, I'm all skinny and bearded." Heh.
