The young people bitch about getting up early. I don't know which clever forum member to TM here, but from now on the two alliances of Samburu are officially Playskool and Oldskool. I don't like to steal these things, but I hate to keep writing "young people" and "old people" because those are such skewed and annoying designations. Kimp complains that she and the other Playskoolers like to sleep in -- they didn't even have their shoes on yet when the Oldskoolers wanted to go get water. Carl tells us he doesn't want to go get the water either, but if he doesn't, who will? I guess we'll find out next week. Teresa approaches the still-sleeping Brandon and says about fifty times that she was "gonna do breakfast," but she'll trade that task with Brandon. I'm not sure why they felt the need to include this clip. Lindsey tells us that Oldskool is nervous and has been sucking up to Playskool. Brandon tells the others that they shouldn't feel bad or forget that Oldskool has been putting Playskool through hell. He says they are "conniving, miserable little people." Brandon, Jeff Varner's on the phone -- he wants his bitch back, and you've got it on. Incidentally, Lindsey is a cackler, which does not bode well for her in the likeability factor. Playskool concludes that Oldskool is probably talking about them right now, so we immediately segue to a shot of Teresa -- who has gone very quickly from being sweet-voiced to incredibly grating-voiced. She's like Agnes DiPesto from Moonlighting but without the humor. I think Agnes DiPesto is on my mind since she showed up on Felicity last week, and speaking of Felicity, I can't wait to see the Rhinestone Cowboy routine in the October 31 episode. It'd be better if it were Javier in the pageant, but the show's not called Javier, is it? And that's a damn shame. Back on point, Teresa tells Oldskool that she liked Silas's idea, which was to have Oldskool vote for the same Playskool member, and Silas would then orchestrate the splitting of Playskool's votes. It's sad that Teresa still thinks Silas is on their side, particularly when Carl points out -- after calling her "T-bird" by the way -- that Silas hasn't talked to any of them recently. Teresa tells us in a confessional that they're wondering whether "Silas is still with us." Now she reminds me of the woman who played Chloe, Dr. Lewis's sister on ER. That woman scares me -- she was in The Color of Night with Bruce Willis -- terrible, terrible movie, don't see it; I'm embarrassed to admit I did -- and went all wiggy with the lipstick in one scene. I've just noticed that Teresa sends me off on tangents. In any case, Linda starts enthusing about spirits and filling spirits and Carl and Frank both walk away from her in separate directions as she's talking. No one listened to her in Africa, and, wherever she is at this moment, no one's listening to her now. Back at camp, Brandon tells us, "I like my gruel, like, fried a certain way." Hee. He says he has decided as the morning's chef to give his "team" more. In a confessional, Lindsey says that they're going to "pig out." We then see Playskool eating many burnt rice patties. I think Silas could have been the new Superman. Playskool laughs about having not left Oldskool any food, and Brandon volunteers that he's boiled them some water so they can make it for themselves. As Oldskool returns to camp, Silas yells to them that their breakfast is "burnt, probably" and that Kimp left it on the fire. Kimp looks confused.
