At the ever-more-pointless Exile Island, Candice stews in her own juices. She acknowledges that the four remaining Aitu members "have it out" for her, but she doesn't so much have a problem with that as she does with Jonathan for following her into mutiny. Why does he have to copy me?? She says that she's never trusted Jonathan "from the beginning," and finds it interesting that while she farts around on Exile Island, Jonathan's the one who gets to "bond" with the new tribe. And I'm pretty sure "bonding" for Candice means braiding Parvati's hair and making out with Adam, which would explain the jealousy she's feeling.
Rarotonga. Oh, it's funny: Jonathan's on his feet, arms spread wide apart like he's hugging the idea of his new tribe, and he says, "I took a step into the unknown. I wanted to be here and meet some of you folks." It's amazing that some people find him insincere. He mutinied because he "wanted to meet some of you folks"? Yeah, I'm sure they'll buy that. Furthermore, he sits down with Raro and admits that what he did was "a crazy thing to do," and he points out that he and Candice are "the seventh and eighth members of [the] tribe." I kind of feel for Jonathan because, as he interviews, he didn't want to mutiny, but he saw Candice as his closest ally, and when she jumped, it was something of a "That's my ride -- gotta go!" situation. He tells us that he's "in the danger seat now." Amazingly, as he speaks to Raro, he tries to couch his mutiny as a loyalty move, because he was loyal to Candice. The amazing part is that it's essentially true, but it's gonna be a hard sell, if not impossible: "My massive show of disloyalty only proves my loyalty!" Besides, how can he and Candice explain their move to the whole Raro tribe without tipping off Jenny, Rebecca, Nate, and Brad that they're planning on putting the Caucasian band back together? The whole thing is just one strategic mud pit, and while I'm grateful for the shake-up in the game, I can't quite wrap my mind around Candice's logic. Jonathan's plan is to be non-threatening and earn Raro's trust.
