Hey, the new tribe has a name! It's Dangrayne, which I didn't get at first, because I was reading it like a man's name: Dan Grayne. But it makes a lot more sense when you realize it's dang rain, but Survivor-ified. As the tribe returns from the challenge, RC interviews that she's feeling pretty safe because she and Skupin are aligned with the former Kalabaw, so they have a solid six. Oh, RC. Are you just taking Penner's word for it?
Skupin interviews that he knows returning players are being targeted and he doesn't plan to go down without a fight. He goes for a walk with Jeff Kent and relays how he doesn't get along with Pete and Abi and is willing to make a switch to avoid being allied with them anymore. Jeff Kent says that his main objective at this point is to get rid of Penner and Skupin says he'll help out with that if it means staying in the game longer. Skupin interviews that he sees no reason to stay loyal to people who've disrespected him, but he also knows that if he and RC flip and then Jeff Kent and Carter flip, nothing has changed. I'm not sure why he doesn't include Denise in his calculations.
Jeff Kent and Carter sit down in the jungle to figure out their best move. I'm not seeing a lot of brain power between these two. Carter practically has to use his fingers to count that, if RC and Skupin join the former Kalabaw, they will have six people. Jeff Kent adds that Skupin promised to ditch Penner first when the time comes. Jeff Kent also adds that they've built some value with Penner, and if they jump to the other side, they will be at the bottom of that alliance. Again, what about Denise? If everyone is forgetting she's playing this game, she is definitely making the finals. They'll be at the final Tribal Council and turn around and be like, "Oh, Denise. Are you still here?" Before Jeff Kent and Carter can make any decisions (although it sounds like they're leaning towards going with RC and Skupin, which would be great, because maybe they'd vote Pete out), Penner strolls up and interrupts their conference to take their pulse.
Penner tells them that he's loyal to his former tribe and he hopes they won't be voting against him tonight. Penner interviews that if his alliance votes against him tonight, it means he's a terrible judge of character and he deserves to be voted out. That's the kind of thing that Penner fans love; where he sounds so magnanimous, like he wants to win but he also respects good gameplay and no hard feelings. We'll see if that feeling holds true for him when he finds out about the plot against him. Penner tries to make a case for Kalabaw plus RC and Skupin voting out Pete and taking control of the tribe. I think he makes a valid case, but who knows.
