Both tribes arrive at the challenge, where Peachy is waiting to take the immunity idol from Lindsey. He says, "As you can see, we have some fire, nice and smoky burning." I love nice and smoky burning things. The challenge will test bow-and-arrow proficiency: each tribe has five targets to hit with lighted arrows in a thirty to seventy-foot range. One member from each tribe will shoot at a time, and Kelly is chosen to sit out for Sambutwo. Kimp and Teresa go first, and neither of them lights a target. Lindsey and Kimj are second, and Lindsey gets a point for Sambutwo. You gotta hate that. Brandon's arrow kind of drops at his feet; he squeals while Tom shakes his head in the background. Meanwhile, you can clearly see Ethan's mouth form the word "Bitch" as he misses his own shot. I like that boy more and more. Clarence and Lex each explode a target. Frank and Tom both miss and Peachy rubs it in: "Two good shots, two misses." This is followed by a fairly short montage of misses, and then Ethan hits another target. Lex gets another one, too, and then Frank misses again. Maybe Frank needs his very own lessons. I hear Geena Davis is looking for work. Lindsey nearly ignites herself with the lighted arrow, and then Ethan gets yet another hit, followed by another by Tom, as well. This might be the easiest challenge they've ever had on all three seasons of Survivor. It's now Lindsey's turn, and the editing tries to make this seem very suspenseful -- because she could win the challenge for her tribe -- but then she misses. Ethan is next -- it always seems to be Ethan's turn -- and he hits the target and wins immunity for Boranew. As the tribe celebrates, Clarence picks Ethan up and whirls him around. Lex looks plaintively backward at the Boranew celebration as Sambutwo leaves the challenge; Ethan waves, but Lex's back is turned by then. It's just like Sleepless in Seattle when they keep just missing each other at the Empire State Building. Or not, because I haven't seen that movie in a long time and I have no real memory of what transpired in it, but it just seemed like the kind of wistful exchange that would happen between Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. It probably happened in You've Got Mail, too, but since I've never seen that movie and plan to go to my grave never having seen that movie, I wouldn't know.
Post-challenge, Sambutwo congratulates themselves for giving the challenge their best shot. In a confessional, Lex tells us that each member of the tribe is vulnerable. We see Lex approach Brandon; he says that they haven't talked yet about what will transpire at that night's Tribal Council, and Brandon snarks, "You're here tryin' to figure out if I have a vote." Lex denies having that particular mission, and says instead he's just there to inform Brandon that it's going to be a very difficult vote, because all of the former Boran members really like the Playskoolers. Brandon says that he knows Tribal Council isn't personal, and that he's totally prepared for whatever happens. In a confessional, Brandon insists that he knows he's going to draw the vote, but that he refuses to lose sleep over it anymore.
