At Kucha, Alicia and Jeff go on a "foraging walk." He says he thought about it a lot and wanted to "have her think about the future," which is demonstrative of a pretty substantial ego -- that Jeff needs to "have" people thing about obvious things. They are debating who would be the most valuable to have in the final four and "that [they] could beat." Jeff tells us that they're already committed to each other for the final four, and Alicia says to him in a very unconvincing voice that the "truth of the matter is I feel like you're the only one I can trust at this point." Then Alicia and Jeff come across a big spider web, and I don't think we're supposed to think it's the Jerri spider this time. We have our choice of appropriately spidery competitors. Alicia tells us they're planning "how this thing should go." Jeff then says that Elisabeth can't be in the final four because she'll "definitely make it." Then, they start picking on poor, deaf, dumb, mute, invisible Nick. They agree that poor, deaf, dumb, mute, invisible "Nick flies under the radar," and Jeff says he doesn't trust him "as far as he can spit, adding that poor, deaf, dumb, mute, invisible Nick "would screw all of us."
Back at camp, poor, deaf, dumb, mute, suddenly visible Nick is also lazy. Jeff asks him for help and poor, deaf, dumb, mute, suddenly visible Nick ignores him and then says he's "zoning out." But then he doesn't offer to help anyway, so good for him. Back in the woods, Alicia tells Jeff that poor, deaf, dumb, mute, invisible Nick is "too secure in his position right now." Jeff tells us that poor, deaf, dumb, mute, invisible Nick hasn't done much useful work but has instead concentrated his efforts on making a "lovely little" kitchen, chair, and patio. Poor deaf, dumb, mute, invisible Nick acknowledges that the kitchen serves little purpose but that "it looks good" and "makes people feel comfortable." He also says it looks like he's doing work, but we know no one's buying it. Not even Kimmi. It seems like poor, deaf, dumb, mute, invisible Nick, Rodger, and Elisabeth are friendly with each other, and wouldn't it be fabulous if these three allied and it was actually a polite and pleasant trip to the final four? Kimmi then tells us that she doesn't see the "necessity in making benches when we need firewood. I think that's not a priority, I think that's a luxury." Jeff says that they need poor, deaf, dumb, mute, invisible Nick because he's one of the strongest ones on the team, but that "when someone in the group has to go, he'll go first."
