John greasily reclines and tells us, "Neleh and Paschal, I think, are really supporting my success in this game." Can he really, possibly believe that Neleh and Paschal would prioritize his success over their own? Why would they go on Survivor in the first place if just to help someone else win? He says it's amazing that he can rely on them -- they're "two free passes," -- and he finds that "mind-blowing." My guess is he finds the conclusion of this episode even more so.
As the clouds race by, the tribe eats and Paschal martyrs that he didn't get any food. Tammy brags about what she cooked, but I didn't hear anyone compliment it. Sean tells us that the pervasive attitude around Soliantu is "we're all in the jury, and good luck to everybody." He knows that the others really mean "good luck to Sean," and claims that "every man for himself is really Sean is for himself swimmin' upstream." Sean swimming downstream would be equally challenged, however.
They check the mail for the clue, which John thinks is "pretty simple," and I think his turquoise skirt is simply pretty. Footage closely follows his skirted ass, here, so it's not just Kimp from last season who gets such lascivious treatment by the camera people. Sean reads aloud, "You've had time to learn this place/I hope you've prepared well/If you've done your homework/Soon we all will tell/Use your information wisely/You can choose who you cut down/Hope you've played nicely/It will help you stick around." "Soon we all will tell?" Kathy cackles and Neleh thinks the challenge will be "process of elimination." Sean tells us in a confessional that if he wins immunity, he's not giving it up, because he doesn't trust his competitors. He says if he loses, he'll salute and wish them good luck, because that's the way they wanted it. He's on his own, and wonders aloud why he would trust them now, since he hasn't been able to trust them at any point during the game.
