Fang returns home, wondering who Kota will vote out tonight. Ken and Ace guess it'll be Susie, although Ace says he thinks Dan is irritating people on Kota. He is, but how could Ace possibly know that? Ken tells us that in regards to Fang, whoever goes home tonight depends on "the pin-up girl, Sugar." As opposed to the pin-up girl, Crystal or the pin-up girl, Ace? There's no need to be that specific at this point, Ken. He says he'll do everything in his power to convince her to vote his way. But does he even have anything in his power?
After the 30,545th shot of a symbolic snake, Ken chats with Sugar in the woods. He tells her what's been going on at camp while she's been at Exile, promising that every word he speaks is the truth. By the way, Ken tells this story like a six-year-old trying to lie his way out of admitting he threw a baseball in the house and broke a lamp. He says that Matty wants to vote Sugar out tonight, and Ace agreed with him, saying that all Sugar was good for was the hidden immunity idol. Actually, I think Ken might be telling the truth. That's pretty much what was said in the boat. Sugar says that she's not sure she can trust Ken, but she's been trusting Ace and she knows he's "the biggest snake in the game." Back in the woods, Ken says that Ace said he could get the immunity idol away from Sugar, and then they could blindside her and she'd be out of the game and Ace would have her idol. Sugar says the plan for tonight is she'll say she's voting for Crystal, and then she, Crystal, and Ken will vote for Ace. "Blindside Ace?" Ken says. "Blindside Ace," Sugar confirms. I love this plan, but there's no way it's going to happen this way. Crystal is going home tonight.
Ken heads to Crystal in her usual spot lying in the hut and says Sugar is voting with them. "Yo, I'm with you, too," Crystal says. Well, duh. Otherwise you'd be voting yourself out. Crystal says that while Ken thinks she's safe tonight, she'll only believe that Sugar is on their side when Sugar writes Ace's name down on that piece of paper.
And now it's time for Ace to make his play. He finds Sugar at the dock and says "I'm going to need to borrow something." "What?" Sugar asks, looking genuinely mystified. Heh heh. "The idol," Ace has to spell out. "Why?" Sugar asks, blinking innocently. Ace says they might try to double-cross him tonight and blindside him. "That's not happening," Sugar says. "You never know what's not happening," Ace says patronizingly. Sugar says that Matty won't vote for Ace, so they don't have enough votes to take him out. "So you're willing to risk it? On my neck?" Ace says. Yeah. Better your neck than hers. Ace says he'll give the idol back to Sugar this time, just like he did last time. Um, no, he won't. Because if he's taking it with him to use, he won't have it to give back. Hidden idols are not reusable. "Oh, Ace," Sugar says; "I gotta think about it." Ace pretends he's cool with that. Sugar tells us that when Ace asked her for the idol like Ken told her he would, she started to believe that Ken was telling her the truth. Yes! Ace just dug his own grave! Except I doubt it! I never believe these blindsides until I actually see them, and that so rarely happens. "Crystal's supposed to go next, but plans could change," Sugar says. Please!!
