Somebody finds a shot of Danni, sapped of energy indeed, finding the strength to swat a bug on her arm. And that is the killer transition to the Bug Sequence. Nice edit. We watch as Judd, in a sweatshirt and long pants that I'm sure feel like a refreshing mist when the temperature is over 100 degrees, returns to the tribe from a wood-gathering expedition. With his hood on, Judd has a kind of Unabomber/Eminem thing going on -- until you see who he is, of course. He announces that it's a good thing he was covered up, because otherwise, the mosquitoes would have devoured him. "They were literally -- if I didn't have my sweatshirt on, forget about it." Yes, if he hadn't had his sweatshirt on, you would literally have to forget about it. And if it were no shirt at all, I believe I would give it my best effort. He compares the mosquitoes to "killer bees" from a movie. Except that they're not bees, I guess. And it's not a movie, and they don't kill you. But other than that, same thing. It would be nice if he took a sunnier approach, but there are only so many times you can point out that what's happening to you is a lot like A Bug's Life. In an interview, Judd explains that he and the tribe have been boxing against the mosquitoes. You think I'm kidding, I'm sure, but there is sparring. I'm not surprised that Judd is the kind of guy who might welcome an unfair fight, but it's hard to land a punch on an insect, I've found. He tells us that swatting only works for "a millimeter of a second." That's some of that quantum physics I've heard about, I think.
