I have to say that at this point on first viewing, I was pretty sure Penner was going home. The editors had done too much to get my hopes up and I was ready to be disappointed.
Tribal Council. The tribe is seated and then the jury comes in. RC is still working it but Jeff Kent has given himself a cop 'stache and looks super sour that he was voted out. Probst asks about the fallout from last week's crazy Tribal Council and Lisa says that she was actually treated with grace, because people recognized that she tried to make a big move and it didn't work, but they can't fault her from trying. Abi has cat butt mouth and Probst asks her if she showed grace to Lisa. Abi asks if she did and Lisa says that she got more grace from the people she was against than the people she was trying to protect. Abi didn't like that answer. It's the truth, though. Probst asks why that was and Lisa guesses that the other alliance has more maturity, experience and fans of the game. Also, they're not assholes. She's too nice to say it, but it's true.
Probst asks Abi why she looks like venom is about to shoot out of her mouth. Heh. That's one way of putting it. Abi says that she's listening to Lisa and doesn't understand why Lisa thinks the other alliance is more protective of her than Tandang. Probst points out that Lisa was talking about grace, not protectiveness, and Abi says she thought she showed that too. Abi is so passive-aggressive. She's such a mean girl. I really can't stand her.
Probst asks Artis if he's surprised that people are loyal to their original tribes this deep into the game, and Artis says that Tandang is one of the more powerful tribes to ever play the game and it's playing out like it's supposed to. Denise looks like she's about to vomit out a response, so Probst calls on her and she says that big moves are always made in the game, because things can always shift so it's a risk to think that things will shift. Artis says he's not totally comfortable and safe, and he knows that he can be blindsided at any time.
