And with that, it's time to vote. Susie votes for Dan, saying "sorry, guy." Dan, in turn, votes for Susie (or "The Suze," as he writes), saying he's only voting for her because that's the way he hopes the rest of the tribe is voting as well. Marcus also votes for Susie, saying "this is about Dan, and not you." And that's when I realized that Dan was going home, but Kota had carefully chosen their votes just in case he had the idol so that Susie would go home and not, say, Corinne.
But Dan doesn't have the idol, which everyone realizes when Probst asks if anyone wants to play it and Dan stays seated. You should have looked for it harder, Dan. The first vote is for Susie. Then one vote for Dan. The two votes for Dan, and he hangs his head. Awww. Susie smiles until she gets another vote. Then Dan gets a third vote. Susie also gets a third vote, and looks confused. I think Dan is realizing that he and Susie should have worked together to try to get someone else out instead of just going along with whatever the other Kota people told them to do. And the last vote ... is for Dan. Poor Dan! He's so insecure! This is going to crush him. I hope he'll be okay. He leaves with a "thanks, Jeff," and Probst turns to Kota and says that they may be successful, but they are not one big, happy family. Which is good for Randy, since when it comes to family, he didn't get any letters.
And in the closing credits, we see that it was SUGAR who wrote the "Ace-hole" vote, which she cast with a wink at the camera. That's cold-blooded. And awesome.
