As they continue to float/swim, Jaime decides to tell Erik all about the immunity idol (since they're wildly oversharing anyway), and about how you get clues when the other tribe gives them to you. Erik talks in an interview about how this can only help him, and he doesn't know what will happen in their relationship, but he likes being aligned with her. Chicka-...limp.
Fei Long, Day 13. As James and Denise work on the morning chores, he tells us that he's doing most of the work for the tribe right now. Well, except for Denise, who also really pulls her weight and works hard. He says he really digs Denise, because she can "compliment you and work with you." She's just his type of woman. And you keep thinking that he's saying something he doesn't mean to say, but then he adds that if she were ten years younger or he were ten years older, she'd "be in trouble." That's...weird? And...maybe sweet? But...mostly presumptuous? In...possibly more ways than one? She agrees in an interview, though, that they get along great, and that they've sort of clicked based on their shared work ethic. She thinks she can trust him and stick with him. She does not, however, suggest that she'd do him if it were more age-appropriate. You must admit that an epic romance between lunch lady and gravedigger would have made for quite a scandalous season. James cooks breakfast as J-R pitches in by instructing him to keep cooking.
