Probst immediately gets to riling Stacey up, asking her how it feels to see her former tribemates again. Stacey says they are all liars and the "red team" should watch out for them. Dawn nods along like this is new information. Stacey continues that "Benjamin, Albert, and Sophie" are calling all the shots at Upolu, and the "ending two" are Albert and "Benjamin." Christine chimes in with her agreement. Probst interrupts just to make sure everyone knows that Benjamin is Coach, who hasn't had a real name since like the second episode of his first season. "Benjamin makes the decisions," Christine says. "Make all the decisions!" Stacey adds. Probst interrupts again, even though listening to Christine and Stacey talk over each other is more entertaining than whatever else the show has in store. He asks them why they are now calling Coach "Benjamin."
"Adults call him Benjamin so I'm not calling him Coach -- " Stacey begins.
"Whether he likes it or not -- " enters Christine.
And then Stacey goes off on how the "children" on her tribe are eating up Coach and his stories and his assertions of loyalty, but she knows better. Well, she does now that she's been voted off. I'm not sure that she knew better before. "Keep that hug. Boop!" she says, firing a finger gun into the air. "Sour grapes," Albert mutters, being sure to keep quiet enough not to attract any more of Stacey's ire.
Finally, it's time for the duel. This time, it's a thrilling contest we've seen before. As a pre-final Tribal Council challenge, even! Stacey and Christine get situated and wish each other sincere "You go girls" before they begin. From the start, Stacey looks like she might be the winner, simply because she looks so focused and her ball-handling skills are far better than Christine's, who bobbles a few. But then they start adding more balls, and while Stacey just shoves them in without paying attention to where the other balls are, Christine takes her time to space them out. "Two balls are a little trickier," Probst says. They so are, Probst.
It's time to add a third ball. Probst warns that both players should be paying attention to the spacing of their balls, but Stacey ignores him and just shoves another ball in the chute. "So stupid," Albert says. "There are no tomorrows for the loser!" Probst cries, so proud of himself for his cheesiness. Christine nearly loses her grip on two balls and I don't know how she's still in this. "Matter of time," Albert says. Wow, Albert has spoken more watching this duel than he has all season. And then, Stacey just misses one of the balls coming out of the shoot -- she didn't even seem to be aware that it was there -- and she's out of the game. Albert especially seems pretty happy to see her go.
