A slithery, hissing snake brings us to Tribal Council. Peachy announces the jury, and yeah! Davey Rockett! Incidentally, Davey Rockett looks exactly like he looked when he was voted out: same clothes, same stubble, same everything. Apparently, what you see is what you get with Davey Rockett. Davey Rockett wears a serious expression as Peachy explains that he's only there as an observer to gather information for the upcoming final vote.
Peachy asks HeiDDi, "What the heck is goin' on with your knee?" She giggles that she wishes she knew, and insists that it's getting better and in two days she'll be "good to go." I think HeiDDi has a little crush on Peachy, since incommunicative as she usually is, she's even more so when Peachy is around. Peachy asks if she's concerned about the injury, and she responds that she is because her "strongest assets to this group are athletic ability and intelligence." Alex grins and shakes his head as HeiDDi continues, "And hello? One of those is gone right now!" In response, Peachy snits, "Which one?" Burn!
Peachy asks Deena whether, now that they're in the jury phase of the game, she's noticed any "palpable change" among the group. She responds that "the game is on," and that people are jockeying for positions in a struggle to see who has the power. She insists that the game has absolutely changed and people are now on edge. It's no longer about survival in the Amazon, but about survival in the game of Survivor.
Alex can't help feeling slightly paranoid at this point. He's been asking himself whether ethics play a role in the game, and if he should stab someone else in the back. He concludes that "it's a balancing act, for sure." I've recently noticed that his speech and mannerisms are uncannily like Shawna's. If we hadn't seen them in one place together, I'd be waging a "Michael and Janet Jackson are really the same person" campaign against them.
Peachy turns to Matt, asking if it's important for him to have the night's immunity. Matthew responds that immunity is "a nice thing to have," but based on what he knows about the tribe (which we all know is pretty much nothing), he claims it isn't essential. Deena looks simultaneously confused and amused as, despite his confidence, Matthew is unwilling to exchange the necklace.
Alex jumps in to say he'd love the necklace, because he wants to finish and win the game. He doesn't enter competitions to just give up and go, "Yeah, it's cool. I'm done now." It's not why he competes, but he knows if his name comes up, he's had no control over it.
