Lindsey then thanks God, because Carl knows lots about teeth but little about Africa and loses the deadlocked Tribal Council tiebreaker. Maybe Lindsey doesn't thank God. Playskool takes control of Samburu, and you don't want to fuck with Lindsey. She then flies off the deep end. Or whatever weird assortment of words issue forth from Silas's mouth. And here comes Linda's rant about wanting to be "on the team." My husband made me fast-forward through this part because just contemplating watching it again was too painful for him. Linda then disses Lindsey's momma, but we find out here that she actually apologized to Lindsey for this. In a confessional, she seems earnestly contrite as she slaps herself and tells us it was a low and totally inappropriate thing to say. She says she apologized at the first opportunity. We see Linda approach a pouting Lindsey and say that her words were "totally uncalled for." Lindsey accepts this apology in a predictably ungracious manner, replying, "I would never say that about your kids." Linda then asks to be forgiven, and Lindsey forgives her. Aw. But not. I think this is all a giant ploy by Linda to get hugged. Linda keeps calling Lindsey "baby" and "honey" throughout their interaction. Lindsey blames the tense situation on the fact that Survivor is an emotional game, and then claims that Linda revealed a new, terrifying side of herself. So the two freak shows make up and head off for a challenge.
Kimj costs Boran another victory. I could have written that after almost every challenge. She's vulnerable, we know. Of course, by the time we see this special, Kimj's at a point in the game where she's distinctly not vulnerable, so whatever.
At Samburu, they have "finally come together...at least for a while." We learn that the tribe won an ostrich egg in the reward challenge, and it boosted everyone's morale. Frank holds the egg like it's a football and asks, "Who wants to go long?" Teresa tells us she's heard that the giant egg is the equivalent of twenty-four chicken eggs; it was interesting for her to watch the others crack and shell it. Lindsey and Frank work together to open up the egg. They have to dust it off in an effort to avoid getting shells mixed in with the yolk. They then pour the egg innards out. Lindsey tells us that the eggshell is "like porcelain" and "if you get any shell, watch out" because it's very sharp. Frank says in a confessional that he's never seen or eaten an ostrich egg before, but that he'd "hate to carry a dozen of 'em home." Kimp and Lindsey prepare the egg, and the other members of Samburu act like Kimj and Lindsey laid the egg. They keep congratulating them on an egg well scrambled. They're egg-shell-ent! Frank tells us it was a "beautiful breakfast" and that it picked up their spirits. He says that "people are stuffin' their stomachs," and it made for a great morning.
