Jeff says, as the rain soaks him, that the next thing on their plates is to find their tribal beaches. They'll have no maps and no fire. They'll find it, he can promise, "a long, dark, wet walk." And waiting for them at camp? Machete, pot, map to water. Because once again, the All-Stars ruined it for everyone. Actually, they ruined everything for everyone. Jeff sends the men in one direction and the women in another, and they're gone, in the truly pounding rain. If that rain is real, somebody up there really likes Burnett, because it's quite a dramatic exit. Mia notes in an interview that the women basically got nothing out of the ceremony; didn't get to do anything, didn't participate. So they're "out for blood now," not that I really see the connection. "That ceremony was meaningless to me! I will fight to the death!"
This season's scene-transition icon is the volcano, so we see a shower of sparks fly into the air as the (women's) Yasur tribe walks in search of its beach. They're making their way along a very wet and slippery area, holding hands as if they like each other and are all going to be best friends. Scout, a rancher who's obviously been ranching for a lot of years, takes a tumble, and then she starts to advocate just "hunker[ing] down" and waiting for light rather than trying to get to camp, because the conditions are so poor. She tells us that while she hasn't let anyone know yet, she's got an artificial knee, so she tries to be pretty cautious when she's confronted with bad terrain for walking. She and a couple of the other women call out to the rest, asking how they feel about just stopping for the night. Eliza says that they "almost insisted," which...no, they didn't, really. When the women all get together, Scout tells them that among other things, she feels unsure that they're headed in the right direction, but she's perfectly okay with having the rest of them go on ahead and she'll just stay back. Leann interviews that they wound up unable to make a decision about it, and that she was kind of concerned that they'd already overshot the camp in the dark.
