As Davey Rockett and Butch haul a giant log together, Alex tells the rest of the group that if Davey Rockett doesn't win the next immunity challenge, they'll vote him out; the others agree. In a voice-over, Davey Rockett explains that his intent has been just to be himself: "What you get is gonna be Dave Johnson no matter what." And as normal as Davey Rockett seems compared to most of the other players, he still talks about himself in the third person, proving that "normal" is just a relative term when it comes to reality shows. In a rain-soaked interview, Dave tells us that he's on good terms with everyone, and is dedicated, motivated and fun. He also likes long walks on the beach and astromolecular physics. Davey Rockett thinks his admirable traits will help keep him around, and he plans to start building alliance with the remaining players in the game. Although the words look hopeful, he seems pretty despondent as he details his plans. We next see the dock, which is just a small pile of floating logs. Davey Rockett and Butch agree that it's not bad at all. And for a small pile of floating logs, I guess it's fine.
A creature that looks almost as much like something out of Lord of the Rings as HeiDDi does perks up and snuggles back down. We hear a nails-on-the-chalkboard sound, as the camera pans over to reveal Matthew obsessively sharpening his machete. The other tribe members look perplexed and worried, before Rob tells us in an interview that he's been living with the "craziest man [he's] ever met." Deena asks whether anyone else is as disturbed as she is by Matthew's actions, and Matthew counters that the machete needs a lot of work. When Jenna asks whether he plans to "butcher" them, Matthew contemplates the machete before promising that he won't harm anyone. He claims to be a pacifist before skeevily insisting, "Blood scares me too. I don't like the sight of blood. I mean, human blood. My own blood. Blah." Aside from the fact that Matthew seems to think disliking the sight of his own blood makes him unique, he pronounces "blood" like Dracula would: "Bloooooood." An open-mouthed Christy stares at Matthew before telling us in an interview, "Matt is creepy. He's just creepy. He's creepy." She signs what I'm assuming is the word for "creepy," and lowers her voice to a whisper. Hee.
Back at camp, Matthew is still sharpening the machete while the other members of the tribe continue to stare. Rob tells us in an interview that Matthew sits and sharpens his machete for hours at a time. He asks, "Why does he need the machete so sharp? I think he's gonna kill us!" We see Matt's sharpening in slow motion, accompanied by his glinty, toothy, dead-faced grin, and his unappealing, flexing muscle. Rob adds that he's afraid that after Matthew's voted out, he'll kill them all. In an interview, Alex adds that Matt is not only a threat, but that he's also "kind of losing it." Alex says there's a "weird vibe" coming from Matthew, and that no one is comfortable around him. This is accompanied by a hilarious shot of Matthew staring over at Alex, staring at his machete, cocking his head sideways, slitting his eyes, and staring back at Alex. He then slams the machete into a piece of wood. Eek!
