There are hugs all around, and then the family members finally are sent away. Judd talks all about how hard it was, hopefully realizing that he's fairly lucky compared to a bunch of other people. Mrs. Judd tearfully says she's never gone without speaking to Judd for more than twenty-four hours. I would certainly believe he's never gone for more than twenty-four hours without talking to her. I would believe he's been known to talk for twenty-four hours consecutively. Cindy thinks having her sister there was "incredible," but she doesn't say anything interesting. Apparently, Mindy was not very inspiring. On the topic of inspiration, I can't help being the kind of person who always wonders...would you, you know, reunite with your significant other in this situation? I mean, I'd think you would, certainly, but you'd be so...dirty and smelly, and it's such close quarters with the other people in camp, you know? And the cameras? Would you sneak off in the woods? I don't mean you personally, of course. I'm sure you wouldn't sneak off in the woods, and that's what I'll tell your mom if she asks. I just mean...I think it's an interesting question. But I have a certain taste for scandal. Anyway. The family members leave in their boat. Steph hates goodbyes.
Back at camp, Cindy and Rafe work on chores, and Lydia starts what will be a very fateful chitchat with Judd. She feeds him a little bit by saying, "Almost there, Judd. What do you think? You got a good shot at the million?" Judd says, "Who knows, man?" Lydia simply says, "Gotta get a game plan here, Mr. Judd." Judd, rather idly, asks, "Why? What do you got? What are you thinking?" Lydia nonsensically asks, "How far do you want to get to the final two?" Judd says, "Just as far as you do." So that was...not very coherent. But you get the upshot. "Why?" Judd asks her. "You have any plans?" Just then, Danni brings over some water and sits down next to Lydia to listen. Lydia tells Judd, as Danni casually eats some corn, that they "know who the key players are." Judd, eager to disabuse anyone of the notion that they know anything he doesn't, says, "I know who the threats are here. I ain't that stupid, man, are you kidding me?" Lydia: "We've come this close. We got seven freaking more days left. Now, we either get rid of the threats, or we're going to be stuck where we're sitting on the jury." "I know that," Judd says. "I mean, look at what happened to me with Jamie, man. You think I was happy about that?" Lydia assures Judd that she was the last to know about that. "And I was shocked that they didn't tell you," she wisely feeds. "I know who the mastermind behind that was," Judd says, as the editors cut to a shot of Steph. "And you know what? If I was to say something, I'm screwed."
