A boat pulls up on the beach and Probst hops out and asks for an update. Dana is completely under a blanket in a tiny heap, so Probst immediately realizes she needs medical attention. Dawson weirdly interviews that she was so excited that Probst was in their camp and she wanted to jump up and down and jump on him but it wasn't the time. This seemed out of place but will be important later.
The medic examines Dana and tells Probst that Dana has tenderness on her right side and it could be because her "tummy" (is that the medical term? Is he a pediatrician?) is irritated or it could be an infection. Dana says that the pain feels like a knife in her guts and it comes and goes. When Probst asks, the medic says that, medically, he would be comfortable letting Dana stay for at least another twelve hours if she promises to push fluids and then they can reassess. That doesn't take into consideration the amount of pain that she's in, though. Probst tells Dana that medical will only pull someone from the game if his or her life is in danger and that isn't the case with Dana. That means that Dana has to decide if she wants to stay or not.
After a commercial break, Probst asks Dana if she's ready to give up, and Dana cries and says that she's got to leave, because she can't stay there when she's this sick. Probst keeps asking her questions about how she wants to go out, and if she wants to say goodbye to her tribe. Like, give her a minute to process, Probst! She's sobbing into the ground right now. Finally, Probst brings the tribe out to say goodbye and explains what happened. Probst points out that Penner went through this and he says that it's devastating and he was also weeping and frustrated when he had to leave. Everyone tries to comfort Dana as she's put on the boat. Katie blows kisses and then interviews that this could not have happened at a worse time because Dana was her closest ally in the game. Yeah, that female alliance isn't looking so great now, is it? Had they even talked to Denise about it yet?
The two tribes report to the Immunity Challenge where Tandang learns that Dana went home. Lisa and Skupin actually look like they feel bad for Dana. Probst quickly explains the challenge, which is your standard team obstacle course, then untying knots to lower a drawbridge and finally releasing and arranging puzzle pieces to form a four-word phrase. Abi will be sitting out for Tandang, since they're plus one person now. Probst gives her a ton of shit for barely doing any challenges. Look, I hate Abi as all right-thinking people do, but is it really Probst's place to point out how many challenges she's missed? Doesn't he think that her tribemates have noticed? I mean, she twisted her knee or whatever, but she couldn't she have done some of the less physical challenges to try to prove her worth. But it's not Probst's place to get all judgy about it. In conclusion, and as usual, shut up, Probst.
