In another confessional on what is quickly becoming The Paschal and Paschal Show, Paschal tells us it's human nature for thoughts of loved ones and home to have become more acute. We see a clip of the S6 entwined in various hugs; a couple of heads are even cradled on bosoms. Neleh, in particular, looks uncomfortable to be holding Robert that way. Then Paschal tells us that he's fifty-seven years old, and for the first time in his life, he has "come face to face with" himself. He chokes up as he reveals that he's not proud of some of the things he's seen and reflected on during his time on Survivor, and that he has taken things for granted. He says he has a wonderful situation at home and a wonderful wife: "And I'm determined when I go back home that a lot of that's gonna change." Hee. That's funny. He wants to change his wonderful situation and wonderful wife? As he and Neleh fold the American flag, Paschal tells us in a voice-over that America is the "most blessed nation in the world," but that Americans take many things for granted. He says that the experience has forced him to realize what's important -- not fancy cars, or television sets, or your bank account, or clothes. He says it's the people. And also the $1 million grand prize. And getting to go on Letterman.
Vecepia throws a rock. She throws another rock. You see? Because Vecepia wastes rocks! But not any longer. She tells us that she's learned not to take the small things in life for granted. Many times at home, she's bought a loaf of bread and tossed the butts, but now scraping food from a coconut husk has made her realize that she needs to think twice about what she's doing. So save those bread butts, people! There's a PSA at the end of the episode telling you to which Third World nation they can be sent.
Now Kathy stalks off into the woods, followed by Pat. She requests his help with the game: "I respect how you play games." Gosh, poor Pat. He's just getting hammered here. Now, he's not only the "crappy little kid from the East Coast who basically hangs around New England," he's the "crappy little kid from the East Coast who basically hangs around New England and is good at games." Kathy explains that she has a loyalty to Paschal and Neleh, but because they're like father and daughter, Kathy will be voted out if she goes into the final three with them, unless she wins immunity. She asks, "How do I get in the game? Because they're gonna boot me." Pat gives the obvious answer: that she should align with Sean and Vecepia, and Kathy is immediately ready to shoot that down by saying that they're also allied and would vote her out, as well. She then tells Pat that Rob is "the key player here," and that she needs to decide whether to approach Rob, Vecepia, and Sean. She isn't sure, though, whether forming such an alliance would make her "look like a total -- " Her voice trails off and Pat enthusiastically finishes the sentence with the word, "Bitch!" Clearly, he's been waiting his whole life for the chance to call her that. Pat says that Rob needs to win immunity, and Kathy once again corrects him by saying that any such alliance has to be done prior to today's immunity challenge. This conversation is so sad. Patrick only has a small amount of the information that Kathy has, and she's deriving way too much pleasure from shooting down all of his suggestions and telling him her own plans. She says that "all of this is seductive and cunning and it's not like" her. Pat doesn't like this side of Kathy, but she insists that it's the work of the insidious game. She explains that she's just starting to play, and wants to know what should she do. Pat says he doesn't know what she should do, because he's never played this particular game before. Or maybe he's just afraid to make any more suggestions because she'll pull yet another trump card out of her ass. Kathy insists that she needs Pat's help because he's her "most trusted ally," and Pat responds that it's "messed up," and that she's been put in a bad situation. Kathy agrees, but adds that if she wants the million, she should form the alliance. Drums beat ominously, because that's what drums do.
