The Heroes return to Tribal Council. Probst asks James "what happened" at the reward challenge. He says he's not really sure what's wrong with his leg, which doesn't hurt but is non-functional. Probst says his niece could beat James in a race right now. "No she couldn't," James says, adding that not even Probst himself could beat James in a race. I actually agree with James here on both counts. Even if he couldn't beat them in a race physically, he'd just yell and scream at them until they curled up into a little ball, sobbing, and he'd easily limp his way to victory. Rupert says he still thinks that James is strong and will be okay. J.T. says that he, like James, wouldn't be willing to leave a game due to injury unless absolutely forced to do so, but at the same time, he is very concerned about James's leg and how it could be a liability for the entire tribe in future challenges.
Probst then talks about the immunity challenge, again asking James what happened. James says he did his part and put the team ahead going into the puzzle, at which point they stopped working as a team and each tried to solve the puzzle on his own. Probst notices that James is eying Tom as he says this, and James puts the blame on Tom and, out of nowhere, Candice, for being the worst offenders. Candice rolls her eyes and says James is only saying that because he's mad at them for considering voting him out because of his injury. "Baby, you just hustlin' for your next thing," James mutters; "I'm tired of arguing with her. I'm honestly over both of y'all." Clearly he's not too tired to interrupt them and blame them for his problems, though. Tom speaks up and says James isn't being kept because Rupert hopes he'll get better -- it's because James is part of an alliance. Amanda then says that Tom once tried to get her voted out for being a "weak player" just like he's trying to get James voted out, except she actually wasn't weak but was in a different alliance. I think she just made a good point there, but I'm not exactly sure.
