Later, it is still Day 36 at Koror. Tom interviews that, just as he said earlier, immunity was huge for him today. He chuckles that this particular immunity was a matter of being "lucky." He then interviews that the women may still get together and oust Ian. And if that happens, it will be three against Tom, and if he doesn't win all the immunities, he'll be done.
Katie and Ian have a chat in which he admits that the way he handled the reward was "stupid on both levels -- friendship and game." Katie looks at him meaningfully, then says, "It just made me reconsider who you're loyal to." She goes on to tell him that she decided yesterday that she wouldn't make promises -- in other words, she'd keep Ian on the hook as long as possible. I will tell you, I don't think Katie ever considered voting off Ian. I think that if Ian had won immunity, she'd have considered voting off Tom. But this? No. She's loving the feeling of having Ian's fate in her hands, but she's not going to vote him off. "This is the clincher," Ian says to her. "This is our test." She tries to laugh adorably. Hey, laughing adorably when you're completely wrong is advanced jelly, there, sweetheart. It's not for the simple. Caryn watches them talk and interviews that, "after tonight, it's a one in four chance of winning a million dollars." She goes on to point out what we all already know -- that Katie has the choice right now of booting Ian or booting her and A-Jenn. She says she doesn't know what Katie has in mind, but hopes she's "being genuine."
Tribal council. Jeff brings in the jury: Coby, Janu, Steph, Gregg. Gregg and A-Jenn exchange a look. Barf. Jeff immediately brings up the painful subject of the reward challenge. Katie calls it "the darkest day" of her experience out here. Again? Barf. Any use of the words "darkest day" should be considered immediately disqualifying. Ian looks uncomfortable. Katie once again lectures about how the promise was broken, and it wasn't about the steak or the car, and so forth. She claims that it made her "rethink everything that's happened in the past thirty-three days." If so? Stupid. Jeff asks Ian whether he knew how upset Katie was going to be. Ian says that it was his biggest mistake so far in the game, and then adds that it was a personal mistake, too, in that he "really hurt somebody that [he cares] about." He says he "felt really bad," which you might have noticed from all the crying. Is he worried that it might "cost" him? "Sure," he says.
