The tribe returns to their camp plus the three loved ones. Lisa interviews that she's always been really close with Justice even though he's twenty years younger than her. Malcolm's brother makes tons of jokes and Malcolm interviews that his brother is a sweet knucklehead who's a clown, but him running his mouth will cost Malcolm. That's what they showed in the preview, but I don't get how Miles's actions cost Malcolm anything. I was expecting Miles to insult someone or otherwise hurt Malcolm's game. Skupin Junior climbs a tree to try to hack down some coconuts and manages to skin both arms, so he's a chip off the old block.
Lisa and Justice go for a swim and some game talk. Lisa fills him in on her current alliance and how she doesn't want Malcolm to go to the final three because he'll probably win. She tells Justice about her attempted blindside of Malcolm and finding Malcolm's Idol. Lisa admits that she's made mistakes and she's finding it difficult to "play the game" by being disloyal and lying, even though she felt strongly about her ability to play the game in the beginning.
Lisa and Justice meet up with Skupin and Junior on the beach. Skupin explains that Malcolm has an Idol, but he can only play it at the next two Tribal Councils and since they have two non-alliance members left, he probably won't play it. Justice suggests that they blindside Malcolm, and Skupin says that he knows Carter would join him and Lisa to do that. Lisa isn't so sure, since her last attempt at a blindside went so horribly wrong. Lisa interviews that she's still having a hard time separating her real-world self and actions from game self and actions. In other words, if she lies and betrays in the game, does that make her a bad person in the real world? It's a question many have struggled with, but most people seem able to lie and betray until they are lied to and betrayed and then they get bitter.
Justice sits down with Lisa and asks her to explain why it doesn't make sense to take out Malcolm now, since they could. Lisa says she gave Malcolm her word and she doesn't want to go against her values to go back on her word. Justice points out that, after Lisa tried to oust Malcolm before, Malcolm understood it was a game and forgave her, so he understands that this is a game and respects gameplay. Lisa interviews that Justice knows who she is and having him basically give her permission to play the game how she needs to was extremely helpful.
