The next item is also covered and Lisa again forces Carter to spend all his money to get that last item. They are veal shanks, but they're for the entire tribe, with no utensils and they only get a minute. Everyone just gnaws on meat like animals as they share the meat. Auction over.
Everyone returns to camp after the auction, full of smiles after eating some amazing food. Or food, I guess. I don't know why Penner chose this moment; perhaps he thought he might catch Abi in a good mood? But regardless, he asks Abi if she wants to talk and she says that she's ready to listen if Penner's ready to apologize. Penner looks confused and asks why, and Abi says he destroyed her at Tribal Council. Abi lists off the litany of crimes committed against her and Penner tries to gently remind her that if she's going to be honest in the game, people are going to be upset with her. Penner asks what Abi has to say, and she claims she has nothing to say. Well, that's a good conversation. Meanwhile, Skupin, Lisa and Malcolm are just sitting there wishing they could melt into the dirt on the ground.
I guess Abi did have something to say after all, as she's telling Penner that she must just be too honest for them and she does view life as a learning experience so she will learn something. On paper, those sound like great words, but you really need to see Abi's accompanying eye-rolling and bitchface. Penner tells her that he's honestly sorry that it was her turn to get slammed at Tribal. Penner interviews that his motivation for this conversation is just to remind everyone what a terrible person Abi is, since that's better for him. Penner and Abi hug and then Abi goes off alone to read her clue. She interviews that she thinks people are trying to communicate with her because they don't know what her clue says and they're worried. Or, they're human beings. Or, they know that if they can get you talking, you will stick your foot in your mouth. Or, they know you're leaving soon and they want your vote in the finals. There are a lot of options that she's not considering. Once she's gone, Malcolm points out that her clue has to be either a clue for another Hidden Immunity Idol or an advantage in the next Immunity Challenge. No one else has any better idea of what it might be.
Abi sits down alone to read her clue. It says that she will get to go directly to the final round in the Immunity Challenge and she'll have a one in three shot at winning immunity. She interviews that she's going to tell the others whatever she has to in order to break up their alliance. I note that, as Abi walks down the beach, she's not limping at all. I guess her twisted knee miraculously healed.
