Sierra interviews that she works as hard as everyone else, and she's getting sick of Douche bossing her around because he's older than her and thinks he's wiser. She threatens to turn on him for this, but I won't get my hopes up. Douche interviews that he's aware that he can be "very condescending" and that he doesn't like that about himself, which is amazing progress for him. But then he claims that he was not condescending to Sierra but rather, trying to "wean her from the tit." What tit? The tit of company while you're cooking? Go surround some fish, you fucking idiot. He adds that if everyone keeps "coddling" Sierra, she won't be able to "fully realize her potential." I have a feeling every single girl he's coached in soccer has heard this before. Douche and Sierra meet down at the beach, and shockingly, Sierra's not all the interested in talking to Douche while picking fruit for food. Douche, of course, picks nothing but orders Sierra around about what she should pick. Finally, he notices that Sierra hates him. "I'm pissed," she explains. But Douche thinks he's Mr. Smooth, and says that he was trying to "gently" "push [Sierra] out of the nest" because he wants to see her live up to her full potential or whatever. He thinks part of her is dependant, to which Sierra says "it's true." Oh, Sierra. I'm very disappointed in you. She interviews that after talking to Douche, she's realized that he doesn't think she's weak, but rather, has higher expectations for her. Because only the best people make fire and cook alone. Sierra and Douche have a make-up hug. Gross.
Over at Jalapeño, everyone is complaining about all the ash they apparently live in. It's getting all over them. Sandy especially almost looks like she's wearing blackface make-up, but Taj is too busy whining and telling the ash to get off of her to be offended. She does this while stamping her feet in a big pile of ash, so that probably didn't help much. Sydney decides that a floor in their shelter would help greatly. Then she interviews that it was actually J.T.'s idea, but she helped. J.T. interviews that he's not building the floor because he's Jalapeño's leader, but because he wants it to get done. So we've J.T. who works really hard but doesn't want to be a leader, only to have the title bestowed upon him, and Douche, who does no work at all and really wants to be the leader but isn't. Interesting. While J.T. and Sydney work on putting floor beams up, Stephen walks up and volunteers his services. But no one seems to be able to think of anything that he can do without making things worse. J.T. says Stephen is like a "little brother" to him. With that, Stephen attempts to grab some wood from the shelter roof and it falls down and almost kills Sydney. She interviews that she's working to get on J.T.'s good side in this game because she realizes that he holds the power. While she and J.T. work, Joe and Spencer watch from the sidelines. Stephen has apparently already given up. We get a shot of the tribe enjoying their new finished floor. For some reason, this has to include Sandy taking her bra out of what I guess is the Jalapeño laundry basket and waving it around.
