And as all this happens, everybody else is staring at the ground. But Kathy? Still smirking. She really doesn't look "offended" at this point. She looks amused. Because I guess that if you don't like her, seeing somebody suffer this much is...funny? Sue goes on: "There's no way I can continue with my emotions pushed to the ground that much." Jeff's like, "So when you say you're done with the game, as in, you want out of the game?" "I'm done, I'm walking away," she says. Jeff turns to Mogo Mogo. "Did anything come up at your camp about it?" They all say no, they didn't even notice. "It was all done in front of our platform," Sue says, which is totally true. "Yeah, I saw it, Sue," Colby says plainly. You might notice that he doesn't have any trouble figuring out what she's talking about, any more than the rest of her team did when they were walking back from the challenge with her, so you might wonder if Kathy -- who had her back turned and doesn't even have the first goddamn clue what happened -- might be a little hesitant to judge. Colby goes on: "And the thing is, we're -- trust me, I mean you know from the first season, maybe you guys don't, living with a guy being naked sucks, because he's naked all the time." Way to totally miss the point, there, Colby. "I didn't give a shit if he was naked, if he had just walked by me," Sue says. "And never fuckin' touched me, I'd have been fine, but he didn't, and that's the point." Jeff asks whether it helps her that Richard is not in the game anymore, and she says it doesn't. She's too worn out: "My mind left this game twenty-four hours ago." Jeff calls for the Boat of Bolting, for the second time this year.
Surprisingly, as they wait for the boat, the one who speaks up is Shii Ann. "I'm so sorry, Sue," she says. "I'm so sorry. I didn't see him...I'm so sorry." Sue just looks at her team: "You guys, good luck." Amber gives her a hug, as do Jenna and Alicia. Alicia gives her a kiss on the cheek, and Sue is still crying. She goes to head for the boat, and Jeff comes over and puts an arm around her to walk her out. Not just the hand-on-the-back, either, but a real arm around her shoulders, which -- despite the fact that your local victim advocate will tell you not to so much touch the violated lady -- I think he meant it in exactly the right way, plus she had been giving hugs to her team anyway, so...I thought he handled it fine, overall. Interestingly, as one of the Eagle-Eyed Forum Posters pointed out, to their credit, Ethan and Lex both take a step back as Jeff and Sue walk past, as if either consciously or subconsciously, they're thinking they should go with her or do something or at least not just linger motionless like hanging venison. Jerri folds her hands under her chin and shakes her head. And Kathy, goddammit, still looks like she's suppressing a smirk. What kind of a...oy, never mind. I'll just get angry. Jeff puts Sue on the boat, and it takes her away. "Boy, is that discouraging," Kathy says. Yeah. Really hard on...you.
