The women set out for Tribal Council in the rain and hike up the steps, where Indiana Just Peachy leads them inside, advising them to light their torches to get fire, which "represents life." Actually, what he says takes a lot longer than that, but, bandwidth and all, I can't go there. Peachy steers the conversation to the first six days, and asks Janet whether any people have emerged as leaders. Janet cites the strength of both Joanna and Deena, because they "did an incredible amount of chopping," and the "really heavy labor." Joanna listens to this with a stony face, while Deena looks a little more receptive to the compliment.
Peachy cites the different obstacles they've faced while building camp, and asks Deena to explain their shelter. Deena answers, "We have none!" She says that although the shelter is sort of completed, it's "kind of a mish-mosh and hodgepodge of a mess." This, she explains, is because they have had to factor in other elements like the heavy rain and limited materials. Joanna jumps in to add that they haven't been able to devote themselves to building the shelter because they've had to worry instead about fire and water. She explains that if they don't have fire, they won't have drinkable water, "and then we [sic] gonna die!" Deena laughs, revealing that -- simian or not -- she has a pretty smile. Peachy thinks it doesn't sound like they even have plans for the shelter, and asks Christy if there's anything at camp she thinks they could have done better. Christy answers exactly as planned, emphatically insisting on the shelter. Peachy calls out a dissenting Joanna, who informs Peachy of Christy's stubborn refusal to work on the shelter earlier that day. Christy explains that her behavior was in response to the fact that she'd previously gotten no help, so why should she help them when they needed it?
Peachy flat-out asks if Christy feels excluded because she's deaf, and Christy thinks there's no question to it. He asks her to explain further, and she breaks down as she says she has no idea when something important is happening within the tribe. She doesn't know when to join the group, and when she tries to approach people, they move away. Christy then loses any allies that she might have won by insisting that she works harder than any of the others do. Peachy calls out Jenna: "Body language is telling me everything!" and Jenna reveals that she's insulted by Christy's accusations of laziness among the rest of the tribe. Peachy asks what Jenna thinks of Christy's allegations that she's been excluded "on purpose," and Jenna responds that it's "ridiculous." She insists that no one has been excluded, and that with eight women living together in the jungle while trying to survive, "eventually reactions are gonna happen."
