Meanwhile, Rotu has arrived and discovered that they have no supplies. No supplies! Who knew? Neleh identifies various supplies. Because she can. F-R-Y-IN-G PAN. FR-Y-ING PAN. FRY-ING PAN. FRYING PAN! Peachy tells us that fire-starting at Rotu became "an exercise in futility." This whole "special" is an exercise in futility, if you ask me.
Fire-starting at Maraamu was "a different story," but it's the same old story to us. Peter brags about how he uses his yoga experience to "breath from the diaphragm" and demonstrates with a series of deep, long breaths. New Age music plays as Peachy cites "Peter's breathing techniques" as the reason the tribe got fire. I would credit the fire to the magnifying glass, but whatever. Sarah and Rob were attracted to each other; Sarah and Rob slept together in the tribe's raft; Sarah and Rob wanted to make a hot tub. Meanwhile, the other members of the tribe look jealous. Flirt, snark, flirt, snark, flirt, snark. Gina tells us that she's not sure if the relationship is sexual or strategic. If it was strategic, by now we all know it didn't work out so well.
It's Day 2. I can't believe it's only Day 2. Twenty-two to go. Will every paragraph of this recap begin "It's Day __" and how endless will that seem?
Remember when Kathy was determined to a start fire at Rotu, but John was "wiped"? Remember when the tribe ganged up on Kathy about the fire, and remember when you thought she couldn't possibly last to the final eight? Remember that? Heh.
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.
