Tribal Council begins. Marcus and Charlie arrive and take their spots on the jury. Sugar mouths "sorry" to Charlie, but she's not that sorry. Probst says that the auction should have ended happily with everyone eating cookies, but it didn't. He asks Sugar what happened. Gah, really? Do we have to go over this AGAIN? Sugar says that when Randy offered her the last cookie, she didn't realize it was his and simply gave it to Matty. "And we've heard about it for three days," Sugar concludes. At this point, I feel like I have, too. Probst asks Randy if he played the auction the right way. Randy says he was "testing" Sugar by offering her his cookie, and that he could have stepped on all the cookies or choose to be generous and offer them to the tribe. He chose to be generous, and even offered Sugar a cookie twice. Except that he only "chose" to be generous after asking Probst if he couldn't have all the cookie to himself and being ordered to give them to his tribe mates. But he doesn't mention that. "It's freaking cookies. My god, we're grown-ups. It's stupid," Sugar says, as if she can't think of any possible reason why Randy would be upset about what she did, or that she didn't do it for the sole purpose of pissing him off.
Probst asks Susie why the cookie incident is representative of this game right now. Susie says this game makes you see people's true colors, and she's wondered if Randy is "really like this." She's decided that Randy's probably "really hurting" and she feels sorry for him: "he probably is really sad." He probably is. But I don't feel sorry for him. That's why Susie is a better person than I am. Randy doesn't like Susie's comment at all, though, as he thinks that she's calling him pathetic. "I don't mean it that way," Susie says. "I was totally sincere with the cookie, too," Randy says; "I swear I was. That's why I went off today." Marcus and Charlie must be very confused at this point.
Probst asks Corinne if something happened at camp today with Randy. Corinne says that he doesn't know what started it, but Randy told Susie to shut the fuck up. Over on the jury bench, twin sets of well-plucked eyebrows raise. "That's a very awkward thing to be sitting through," Corinne says. I have a feeling Corinne sits through many awkward moments, although this was one of the few times that she didn't cause it. Probst asks Crystal if she can feel the tension. Crystal says she can, and that in any other circumstance if someone disrespected a grown woman the way Randy did, "that's hands down for a slap." But ... if you're going to slap someone, shouldn't your hand be up? Also, I do not think telling someone to shut up should be met with violence, but a slap is better than being stabbed in the face, so Crystal > Corinne. Probst asks if Randy might be playing a game of his own. Dude, Probst. Shut up. What the fuck? Crystal's answer doesn't make much sense. But then, neither does Randy's game.
