Alex explains in an interview that Survivor involves a lot of "almost immediate karma." He says that being rude to people for no reason tends to come back and hurt you, not to mention the fact that it's just not any way to act. It's depressing how novel it seems to be this season for anyone to take this position. Back at Coffee Camp, Cassandra notes that her coffee is "all grinds." Stacy makes a face. I'm not sure who made the coffee in Cassandra's cup, even, but I hope it was Stacy, who is not as cool as she thinks she is. Edgardo says that he's "really upset at Stacy and Lisi." He says that the two of them are "on a power trip." He says that if they keep acting like this, they'll be booted themselves, and I immediately kneel and start asking Burnett to make this happen.
Exile Island, Day 13. Earl voices over that he and Yau Man are working together on the idol, and when he gets yet another clue making it even more obvious where the idol is, he's like, "Yeah, I got that, shut up." Safe to say he does not require additional information about the idol; he just needs to find it. Earl does mention in an interview that Yau Man told him he didn't find the idol when Earl got rid of everyone, and he assumes that it's true. It's interesting, because of course, Yau Man could choose to find it and then hide it from Earl, of course. But Earl believes Yau Man, and he also doesn't think Yau Man will find the idol while he's gone. I'm not sure how Yau Man would find it, of course, unless he can get everyone else to leave camp, perhaps with a story about snipe hunting. I fell for that one when I was in...I think eighth grade. Embarrassing.
