Marcus goes to the woods with Susie and says they should keep Crystal around since she's hopeless at any and all challenges and vote Ken out tonight. Susie suggests that Crystal might get better now that she's getting some food. Ha! Crystal sucked on a full stomach, too. Marcus doubts it: "she's atrocious!" He says he wants Ken out tonight, and Crystal out next, although he hopes it won't come down to that. Susie tells us that she "feels safer" going along with Marcus right now, even though this is probably the only opportunity she'll have in the game to get rid of him. Don't be an idiot, Susie! Susie tells Marcus she's trusting him now, and he says he thought they were trusting each other for a while now. Except when everyone accused Susie of being untrustworthy, like, yesterday. How quickly Marcus forgets. I hope Susie doesn't forget. Susie says she's trusting Marcus to bring her to the Final Three. Marcus points out that they have to help each other do that, but says he could see a Final Three of him, Charlie, and Susie. Aw, Marcus is just as devoted to Charlie as Charlie is to him! Susie tells us that she sees Marcus as her best chance of getting to the end.
Crystal, meanwhile, finds Ken. Ken thinks that Susie will either side with them or be voted out tonight. "No," Crystal says. Ken looks surprised, although I can't imagine why. I mean, duh, Ken. Crystal tells him that the plan is to vote Ken out tonight, and Ken deflates like Kirby. "I can't let them do it," Crystal says. Ken says their only chance is to convince Susie to vote with them instead of Marcus and Bob. Crystal tells us that Ken's life in this game rests on Susie. And she doesn't look pleased about that. If only Ken had a Game Genie, then he would have infinite lives! And super jump!
So while Ken talks to the boys about the fish they're preparing for supper tonight, Crystal goes into her usual plotting spot -- the hut. She whispers to Susie that they can help each other, and Crystal and Ken are willing to vote out whoever Susie wants. For example, Crystal suggests, Marcus could go home tonight. "But Marcus wants to take me to the final three," Susie says, so naively. First of all, he doesn't "want" to. You're trying to force him into promising you that, and it's a promise that he is under no obligation to keep. Second of all, he won't. "He can't promise you that!" Crystal says. "You think he's lying to me?" Susie asks. Is she this stupid, or is she just acting stupid? I don't get it. Crystal says she knows Marcus is lying, and lists off the members of the Kota Six who don't like Susie, according to Marcus. Ooooh, that was bad move on Marcus's part, giving up vital Kota Six inter-dynamics like that! Now Crystal's argument becomes very convincing.
