The Heroes get all of their crates back first, of course, though the Villains are not too far behind. Soon, both tribes are working on their puzzles. Tom appears to take control for the Heroes, telling them what piece he thinks they're looking for to be on the very bottom, while J.T., whose voice was supposed to be the only one, is silent. The Villains, on the other hand, work together with Rob leading them as they place one block at a time. Soon, the Villains have only two blocks left to place while the Heroes are standing around looking lost, their puzzle nowhere near completion. At one point, Rob lifts a crate with just his back even though he has the flu (which he doesn't). The Heroes, meanwhile, appear to have the first part of the puzzle solved but can't figure out the rest. I'm not sure why. Stephenie seems to think one block is out of place, although it looks right to me. Colby agrees with her, and they move the block with Stephenie letting everyone know that she knew the answer to the puzzle from the beginning but no one would listen to her until now. Because that's what you want to hear when your team is losing: an I told you so. As for the Villains, they have just one block left to place, but it's the very highest one and they're pretty weak, so it could be a while before they're able to get it there. The Heroes decide that the new placement of a block (which appears to be the one Stephenie suggested) is wrong, and J.T. angrily says they had it right in the first place. Rupert, who has done absolutely nothing to help his tribe whatsoever in this challenge, puts his head in his hands. "Y'all need to listen. One voice," James starts to say. And like most things James says, he's going to say this over and over and over again for the rest of the episode and probably several more to come. While the Villains continue to lift their final piece into place, J.T. and Stephenie argue until James screams at them to shut up. The Heroes just sit around looking defeated as the Villains, their final piece now in place, climb to the top of their staircase for the win. They're so happy about it that Courtney hugs Randy while Rob, spent, dramatically collapses from the flu he doesn't have.
The Heroes, meanwhile, continue to argue with each other. James yells at his tribe for not listening to J.T. and thus causing them to lose. Stephenie immediately says that she was listening. James says everyone was talking when it should have been "one voice." I guess I agree with that in theory, but it's kind of difficult in practice when the "one voice" you're supposed to be listening to sounds like it's coming from a mouth full of marbles. That is when it's doing any talking in the first place. Stephenie interviews that she doesn't appreciate James talking to her like that, but she has to bite her lip about it or else become an even bigger target than she knows she already is, thanks to Rupert's dislike of her. I like how she guesses that one reason why Rupert wants her gone is because she "threatens his popularity," as if Stephenie or Rupert are all that popular anymore or could have ever possibly been as popular in the outside world as they clearly are in their own minds. "I'm just trying to say as little as possible," Stephenie claims, although so far, she's said quite a lot. With that, Probst gives the Villains their idol and reward and tells them to head out. As the Heroes do another slow-motion walk of shame, James tells us that no one in the history of this show besides Stephenie has managed to lose her entire tribe coming into the merge, and so she must be the reason why the Heroes are losing now. He calls her "kryptonite" and says she needs to go.
