Know who's not buying Jonathan's explanations at all? Nate. He's already giving him the fish-eye at camp even before he tells us what's up. Here's what's interesting: Nate says, "I knew Candice was gonna come over here, but my man Jonathan rolled over here, too, with her." He says Jonathan must be "smoking some good stuff" if he thinks he's going to come to Raro and "start stirring waters." First off, he knew Candice was coming? Was this pre-planned by Adam and Candice somehow? That's a stretch, but maybe they just had a blanket "next chance I get" situation already established. What's interesting is that Nate knows about this and is cool with it. Anyway, he says that it looks like Brad's gonna get another three days in the game, because Jonathan is right now topping Raro's hit list. "Do you really think we're gonna have you back after we just saw you sell out your other tribe?" Nate asks. "Are you dumb?" Dude, calm down. For one thing, you seem to be okay with trusting Candice after she sold out her old tribe. For another, Nate seems to have an all-too-common- on-Survivor tendency to have to create mountains out of molehills in order to justify a booting. Just vote him out if you want to! It's the best move anyway! I don't want to begrudge Nate his large personality, because that's what got me to like him so much in the first place, but that kind of attitude cuts both ways, and this is the underside, I guess.
The next day, chickens roam free on Raro, and Jonathan's up in a tree, chopping coconuts. Thankfully, this is a Raro tree and not an Aitu tree, so it doesn't know what it's missing by not having Ozzy humping his way up its trunk. I'm sorry, Ozzy, once you've been on the Playboy Channel, there's no such thing as "too dirty." While Jonathan chops, the Raro women and Brad (or as Nate would tell you, "the Raro women") lounge on the beach. Adam also lounges, across the fire from Jonathan, and they talk some strategy. Such as it is when you're talking "strategy" with Adam, but still. Jonathan assures Adam that his and Candice's plan all along was to reunite with him and Parvati, and Adam says "that's cool with me. I'll do that." Adam interviews that Jonathan's plan is an all-Raro final four, and "just to have someone there that wants that, and wants to include me, is good to have along the ride." Which is encouraging for Jonathan, I suppose, but Adam's talking the talk of the backup plan right now. "Along the ride"? Not the best vote of confidence. Lucky for Adam he's telling this to the viewers at home and not Jonathan, who arrives at the novel conclusion that "this game is all about trust."
