Back in the hotel room, Lill jumps on the bed. Oh, Lill, please don't. Of course, now she at least has some pants on, so the horror is mitigated. Jon voices over that Lill was antsy and nervous in the hotel room, because they needed to talk about a lot of strategy and she has no patience. He teases Lill about being "the queen of sitting around the camp going," and then he mouths something and laughs, and she takes offense, but I have no idea what he said. She smacks his arm, and then before you know it, she's stomping off to bed, claiming that she's not talking to Jon anymore because she hurt his feelings. Where were the yellow subtitles when I really needed them? I have no idea what he said. Lill interviews that Jon talks down to her -- well...oh, never mind -- and she says that she's seen that pattern before. In especially condescending Boy Scouts, perhaps. Jon and Darrah, meanwhile, sit outside and enjoy a thunderstorm.
Back at Balboa the next morning, Christa and Burton stroll on the beach together. She's wearing some kind of giant floaty pants that I just don't understand, either in the sense of where she got them, or in the sense of why she would put them on. Christa opines that Darrah has a good chance at winning immunity, so they need a plan other than her. Burton interviews that Christa was willing to "make concessions" in order to get to the next round. As it turns out, as they talk, this basically means that Christa tells Burton she'd be willing to vote out Sandra if that was what he wanted to do next. Christa, however, continues to argue that Darrah is the bigger immunity threat: among other things, "she was a cheerleader." Um...huh? I mean, I get that that's somewhat physical, but to the point where you'd assume she'd win immunity, when she hasn't in any challenge that was remotely physical up to this point? Is the immunity challenge likely to be megaphone-yelling? Burton interviews that he wasn't surprised at Christa's willingness to "stab Sandra in the back." Of course, as you all have heard me complain at mind-bending length, I don't even think voting people out counts as "stabbing them in the back" in a game like this, but...that does seem to be the lingo. Burton says that he's not entirely unattracted to the idea of having Christa in the final two with him, because he thinks he could beat her. See, I think there's a whole undercurrent in this season involving the fact that Christa is not a nice person at all -- an undercurrent that they've never really pursued, probably because little ever came of it. But anyway, Burton's comments seem to be further evidence. Burton finally tells Christa that he's willing to do what he can to advance her to the top four. Christa quite brilliantly interviews that Burton knows it's a game. Thanks, hon. She goes on to say that getting rid of Sandra wouldn't be personal. Exactly. Well, except I would have said it less stupidly.
