Jeff returns with the Urn-O-Votes. First vote, Ami. Second vote, Scout. Third vote, Ami. Fourth vote, Scout. Fifth vote, Ami. Sixth vote...Ami. So Ami -- who's been bugging me for so long -- is finally gone. Eliza, I must say, does not look that sad, now that it's happening. "Good luck, all you young'uns," Ami says as she passes the group, unable to resist the urge to fling a little more bitterness at Scout and Twila on her way out. It's also the precursor to the little lie Ami's undoubtedly going to be telling herself, that she was voted out by jealous older people. SNUFF! Oh, I could watch that all day. Finally, she walks away and we don't have to look at her anymore. ["To me, it looked like she also flipped off her former co-competitors over her shoulder, but that they pixilated her finger out." -- Wing Chun] And when she's gone, Eliza smiles all the way through Jeff's summing-up speech, so I really don't think Ami's work had as much effect as it seemed like it might. I've seen people really torn up over bootings before, and they don't look like Eliza looks here. I think Eliza is perfectly happy with her choice, and good for her. They head back to camp.
In her farewell interview, Ami says she'd like to hold Twila underwater for two minutes, and that would make her feel better. But aside from the homicidal fantasies, she's not bitter. She goes on to say that her "integrity is complete." She is such a silly person, and it is such a relief that she finished sixth and will vanish into the fog of history like the blip she has always deserved to be. Oh, and she includes a note to the effect that Eliza is among Ami's real, true friends, notwithstanding the absolutely crap-ass way she treated Eliza throughout the episode.
Next week: Twila gets mad. Eliza gets mad. Chris still thinks women is crazy!
