Ace and Sugar meet up in a field. Sugar tells him that she took her idol back from his bag to make sure someone else didn't get it. Can someone please explain the fucking idol rules to her already? What is she talking about? Does she think people are allowed to go into other people's bags and steal their idols? Then why wouldn't they have done that when they found the idol in her bag the first time? Ace says that's cool, and she won't need to play it tonight. She seems to totally trust that. Ken tells us that he made sure that Ace doesn't have the idol and Sugar does. Until she, like, gives it to that elephant across the lake for safekeeping. As Fang gets ready to go to Tribal, Ace says that Sugar has the idol again, and it's entirely possible that she's decided that she's gotten all the use out of Ace she can and will vote for him tonight. It's possible, but Ace very much doubts it. "Going in confident -- that could be the worst thing possible," he says. And yet, that's exactly what he's going to do.
Fang arrives at Tribal, and Probst lets out a big sigh to start the night. A big sigh for a big douche. He reminds Fang that they've lost eight out of the last ten challenges, and asks Matty how the tribe feels about this. "We're cursed!" Matty says. Probst asks Kelly what's going wrong, and she says they aren't able to come together and work as a team. Probst agrees with her, which means he's temporarily unable to say anything about Fang sucking because she's the worst challenge competitor ever and somehow drags the team down by being stronger than Ken. He says the challenge today was a good example of that. Crystal speaks up, saying that Ace dominated the flagpole assembly and wouldn't let them work as a team the way she wanted. Ace just says they didn't "come together as a group" in the end. Does he realize it's because he ordered everyone to step back and let him do it himself or is he actually this oblivious? He graciously says that he's probably mostly to blame for that. Probst asks Crystal if it would be "fair" to vote for Ace tonight because he screwed up at the end of the challenge. "Yeah," she says immediately. The musical flourish is shocked!
