I'll Show You Mine, If You Don't Show Me Yours....Again.
Now it's time for the all-new voodoo doll clip. Except it's not new, because we just saw much of this footage in the pre-credits. The Moppet uses the tribe's machete to pretend to saw at the doll while humming the theme to Jaws or some other horror movie-like song. Peachy tells us, "Rotu planned on sticking it to Maraamu," in the first challenge, and then we already get reclipped -- within five minutes of the clip's first appearance -- as Robert introduces his voodoo doll again. He proudly says they'll pass the doll around and everyone will get a shot at it. The voodoo doll appears to be wearing a little hood. Robert stabs the doll's shoulder in case they're rowing in the challenge, and Kathy is upset because the pin "won't go in its head." Neleh gleefully announces that she wishes "sore arms" upon the other tribe. Kathy's nipple brings us to a new scene.
No food, no water, no fire. We knew, we know, we will know. By now, it is ingrained on our very psyches.
Peter Pandit is annoying. He likes to talk about his various orifices, and wants the others to know he's not just a "magical, mystical person." He says he can divine the truth from looking in people's eyes, and Gina points out that some people will look him in the eye and lie to him. Oooh, sneaky new clips. Peter Pandit says he knows that neither he nor Gina have alliances, and Hunter says that alliances mean nothing at this point in the game, anyway. Peter Pandit doesn't know that, though. Sean jumps in to say that there are no alliances right now, but Peter Pandit doesn't know that, either. In a confessional Vecepia tells us the game has "drifted from survival to a paranoia state," and Peter Pandit has taken it to the extreme. Peter Pandit tells Sean that he can tell from everyone's faces the outcome of that evening's Tribal Council. Sean thinks people are just tired and hungry, but Peter insists that it's better to get it out now, because they won't be able to talk later. Peachy voice-overs that even though Patricia and Sarah got votes, "Peter [Pandit's] instincts were correct." He's the first; seven more to go.
It's a cameo scuttling crab! First it looks like some brush, but then it scuttles! That, I believe, is new footage. Because I know my scuttling crabs.
Maraamu was upbeat! They had a radio show!
But at Rotu, they're all about the work. Clips of the squiggy food. We next learn something critical to our understanding of the development of the Rotu tribe: they had peppers. Teensy tiny little red and yellow peppers found by the Moppet. They're the moppets of peppers. The tribe congratulates each other on spicing up their meals until the Moppet eats a moppet pepper and starts squealing. We next seem them chopping up the moppet peppers into even tinier pieces: minced moppet peppers. Neleh enthusiastically says, "Coconut, lime, and peppers!" Good girl, learning her fruits and vegetables.
