After getting all of one vote from the person who just left, John decides he needs to change things around and cut open three coconuts so his tribe will see him as a provider. Ultimately, it doesn't really matter, as the Ozzy, Keith, and Jim already have a solid game-winning alliance. Well, except for Jim, who continues to be suspicious of Ozzy. And he should be, since Ozzy goes off on his own and immediately finds the stupid idol without even finding the clue first, because once again, the people behind the scenes can't be bothered to even try to hide that thing.
Over at Camp Upolu, Christine is able to find the clue, but not the idol itself. That's bad news for her, since everyone knows that she was looking for it before and she doesn't appear to be in an alliance with anyone. She's certainly not in Coach's majority alliance, due to being stupid enough to express her desire to vote him out about three seconds into the game last week. Now Coach wants her gone, and after Upolu loses the immunity, it seems like there's nothing stopping him from getting that wish. Until Li'l Li'l Russell, who is so pure of heart and honest and Christian that he can't keep lying to Coach about the fact that he's related to Li'l Russell (Coach magnanimously decides not to hold that against him – for now), decides that Mikayla and her more-attractive-than-Li'l-Li'l-Russell's-wife ways must leave the game ASAP no matter what and lies to his alliance that Stacey and Christine are planning to vote for her. They aren't, so they're both shocked and pretty pissed off when Coach accuses them of it at Tribal Council. It seems like everyone is going to vote for Mikayla, even after Li'l Li'l Russell admits to lying about Stacey and Christine, only for her to receive no votes whatsoever. Stacey and Christine, who still didn't realize that they were on the outs together, vote apart for Sophie and Edna, while the other seven split their votes between Stacey and Christine just in case one of them found the idol. Neither did, and Christine is the first to go from Upolu, the scowl never leaving her face.
We open on Redemption Island, where night vision is in full effect. Semhar's Complain Train is also on full effect, and she sobs that her tribe sent her to Redemption Island even though she gave them her "every last strength." "Figures," she whines. When you put it that way, Semhar, it totally does figure. Semhar says she has "abandonment issues," which makes her decision to come on this show make that much more sense. "I don't understand how people can be so cold-hearted," she continues, completely forgetting that she is on a reality show where the goal is to eliminate everyone else. And then she decides to make herself feel better with some spoken word poetry, which her tiny crab audience really seems to enjoy even though she thinks "damage" and "stand it" rhyme.
The Semhar-less Savaii return to camp. John thanks everyone profusely for keeping him in the game even though they clearly were never going to vote him out in the first place, as proven by the unanimous vote for Semhar. John says he's going to have to try to be cool and mellow from here on out and not his usual panicky nerd self. Ozzy interviews that he decided to "let" John stay in the game because he respects his "passion." Didn't Ozzy respect Semhar's passion, like, the day before? While John sleeps, Ozzy and Keith talk about his usefulness in upcoming challenges and how they're assuming he'll be good at the puzzles because he's so smart. They then talk about Jim, who they also think is smart as well as a good worker around camp. They decide to try to pull him into their alliance. Keith interviews that he likes Ozzy and all, but he is aware that he's played the game before and wants to win it just as much as everyone else does. "I'm gonna have to watch him like a hawk," he says. We'll see if he actually does that.
Day 4 dawns on Upolu. Coach takes a walk with Edna and thanks her for being the only person on the tribe who was initially interested in getting to know him, which he has since repaid her by forming an alliance without her in it. He says Edna may not be an ally, but he still thinks she can be a friend. Wow, Coach is "I still want to be friends"-ing Edna. And since I'm sure Coach has been on the receiving end of that more than once, I'm surprised he'd do it to someone else. Coach then gets a little bit savvy about playing the game and tries to find out through Edna if Christine has the immunity idol. Edna says she knows Christine spent hours looking for it, but she hasn't looked at all today, which Edna thinks means Christine already found it.
