Back at the camp, The Moppet caves to Kathy's weepiness and asks what aspect of being in the Marquesas worries her most; he says he'll try to assuage her shelter fears, but insists again, "This is an adventure, not just a hardship." In a confessional, Tammy tells us that she felt bad when Kathy teared up, but "because [their] point here isn't to make anybody feel bad or hurt anybody's feelings." And suddenly, the tribe is building a shelter as The Moppet tells us that since it was a priority for Kathy, they made it a priority for the group. They've also made cutting up their raft a priority, which doesn't seem like the smartest thing to do, but that's just me. The Moppet thinks it's nice that they will all sleep under the shelter together and not worry about the elements. The tribe then gathers for a "special moment" as Paschal unveils his luxury item: the American flag. He tells us in a confessional that he's very patriotic, and that the flag is "a wonderful symbol of what this group is about." So the American flag is a symbol of snarkery, pig-snaring, and backrubs? It is America, after all. Neleh has both arms around Paschal's neck as they raise the flag, and he earnestly says, "It just makes me feel good to look at it." Kathy thanks the Moppet and says, "I am at peace now," but we all know that can't last long.
