A fiery sky at Rotu leads to a nursing or pregnant pig running through the brush. It's now Day 5 and a woman -- I couldn't tell who -- says that something good is going to happen tonight: they'll either catch a pig, or they'll starve. The tribe heads off to check their pig snare, and Neleh comments that bacon sounds good. The tribe arrives at the trap, and John is "totally stoked" because it worked. Except it didn't really work, because there's no pig carcass in sight. John explains that the snare was set off by a pig and indeed worked correctly; they just didn't catch the pig. He compares the situation to fishing and having the fish take your worm: "It simply was as close as that." But my guess is that when you're really starving on a desert island, "close" counts for shit.
Now the tribe sits together; Paschal is stating reasonably that they need more than three people to get water. Suddenly Kathy is whistling for the tribe's attention again, and I wonder where she learned that this was an appropriate means of getting the attention of others. She snits to the tribe, "I want to have a leettle meeting to introduce my goodies." The Moppet's facial expression in response to this is phenomenal: it's a combination of total disbelief and semi-amusement. Kathy insists that "it's good news," and then Tammy tells us in a confessional that Kathy acted like a mother holding a chocolate bar in front of a child and saying the child could have it as long as he or she did exactly what the mother said.
Kathy joins the tribe and tells them that she thinks she's good at food gathering because she grew up around the ocean, but I think it's more that she has a particular and mutual affinity with things that live under rocks. She says she will continue to find food for the tribe, but first they need to fix two things: the fire and their shelter. Aren't these basically the only things? She complains that everyone was sleeping under the shelter the previous evening and that there was no place for her. Paschal kindly points out that he volunteered to move over for her, but that she insisted she didn't need any space. She ignores this and martyrs, "All I want is a roof over my head." As she majestically dumps open her bag of slimy foodstuffs, she claims, "And I want to feed you, because I want us to win." Robert is lying down with his eyes closed, ignoring during Kathy's display, but the rest of the tribe attempts to work up some sort of enthusiasm for the food. Then Kathy pushes it a little bit further and says, "So this is what I'm saying: we each have a role." The Moppet isn't having that. He thinks it's great that she found the food, but he doesn't think they should each have a role at all. Kathy argues that she's just saying that they don't know each other, and points out that she doesn't even know what Paschal does for a living. Why, Paschal battles against the evil that is lewd teen dancing! The Moppet insists that she should talk to the other members of the tribe and stop going off by herself so often, because they're "also trying to be a society." She says she knows that, but then The Moppet asks why she doesn't know anything about the rest of them. Kathy insists that she's been too busy with the important work of looking for food. The Moppet says there's more going on then shelter, food, fire, and water. Again, Kathy laments, "All I want is a roof over my head" as she starts to tear up. The Moppet says, "That's not all that I want. I want to know you." Why would he want to do a crazy thing like that? He goes on to say he'd rather get to know Kathy than build a shelter. Kathy whines that the tribe is "all over [her]" because she made a simple request for shelter. In a confessional, she tells us that she was caught off-guard because the tribe "bit back real hard," and that she was almost in tears. She was in tears, actually.
