Now Adam -- oh so predictably, it's awesome -- goes to Nate and says that he wants to "beat [Jonathan's] ass." Watching it a second time, I see all the little softly-spoken indications are there that this is all "after we take care of Brad" talk, but watching this the first time, I thought Candice had pulled it off. Nate interviews that he and Adam want to "take a brick and beat Jonathan in the head with it." That's...oddly descriptive and specific. There's that line between "I'm gonna kill you!" and "I'm gonna wait until you fall asleep and then smother you with your pillow until your body stops twitching." You'd kind of get uneasy at that second one, right? Nate adds a big "BUT, we gotta think smart," which is voiced over a shot of clueless Brad with Nate looming in the background. Yeah, I should have seen this coming. I say "clueless Brad," but the truth is, we don't know what Brad's thinking. Because we still haven't heard from him yet. When was the last time someone got voted out and didn't get a single interview segment? Which is why I thought it had to be Jonathan. You know what else threw me for a loop this episode? Nate's weird-ass mustache. It's thicker around the corners of his mouth, so he constantly looks like he just ate a whole chocolate cake and hasn't wiped his mouth yet.
Tribal Council. It's raining, or else that weather machine that Mark Burnett's been working on in his sub-terranian terror-dome is finally operational. Jeff, naturally, wants to talk about the mutiny first. Brad says his first thoughts were that Candice is "one gutsy girl" for creating four sworn enemies on the Aitu tribe. Gutsy, sure, or incredibly foolish. Though I will say, much as it was the wrong move and will likely doom her chances at winning the jury over, Candice has ended up in a pretty sweet position in the game right now. She's part of the game's single biggest alliance -- Raro-minus-Jonathan -- and she's also part of what appears to be the dominant alliance within Raro -- with Adam, Nate, and Parvati. It'd all look pretty sweet for her if it weren't for: Yul's hidden immunity. Which essentially allows Yul and his alliance to hand-pick who from Raro they want to eliminate when it gets played. And you think they're not choosing Candice? Did you see the way they looked at her? If she flips post-merge, this probably doesn't happen. And that's why you don't mutiny. Because you're the first to die. Oh my God, Ozzy! I totally owe you a Coke!
