Over at Mogo Mogo, the team is returning. Shii Ann talks in an interview about how sad she is, because she likes her tribe, and now they have to "go to tribal," and they have to vote someone off, and isn't it sad. Because the last thing you want to do when you come on Survivor is eliminate people. Boo hoo! Colby and Ethan take a walk, sharing the unhappiness of losing the challenge. Colby says he really doesn't want to sit around camp "talking about woulda-coulda-shoulda." Colby voices over that "this is a game where the more you strategize and the more you think about it, the more you change your mind." He says that sometimes, the gut tells you to do something other than what you've already agreed to. As he and Ethan sit together, he tells Ethan that "Richard's the one we've got to get rid of." Colby calls him "cancer in this tribe," and says that if allowed to grow and spread, he will. "Do you think he's strong enough to keep around for more challenges?" Ethan asks. "No," says Colby flatly. And seriously, with Colby and Ethan, I think they have a buff quotient that will be adequate for upcoming challenges, although it would be tempting to get rid of dead weight like Shii Ann, who seems to have no purpose in her tribe whatsoever. ["Surely you're forgetting about her suggestion that they add a dumbwaiter to their shelter. No one else came up with that." -- Wing Chun] "The cool thing is," Colby tells Ethan, "he thinks we're dropping you tonight." Ethan looks up unhappily. Nobody's happy to hear he's even theoretically on the block, even as part of a "but not anymore!" speech. Ethan interviews that now, the plan is to vote out Hatch, but he acknowledges that he has no clue whether that's for real, and in truth, it could easily be him. "I think I've got a fifty-fifty shot," he says with a weak chuckle. All right, that was mildly endearing. But I still hate him. I think he benefited a lot this week from not being on very much.
Elsewhere, Colby approaches Jerri. He tells her that if Hatch comes to her and "tries to bring [her] into the loop," she should tell him she's voting for Ethan, because that's what Hatch thinks they're all doing. "We gotta get rid of him," Colby says, referring to Hatch. "Okay?" "All right," she says. Jerri interviews that Lex, Colby, and Ethan approached her and asked her to vote out Hatch. She says she told them she'd do it, but that her perception of the down side is that it's not great for her to wind up in an alliance with three guys who will kick her ass in challenges. Well...right, but I think that by thinking ahead to the final four, she is thinking way too far in advance. She's forgetting the lesson of Sandra in the Pearl Islands. And how does that lesson read? "As long as it isn't me."
