"Michelle, ma belle," Earl says fondly. "I think the hardest part for me was really pushing my body to limits I didn't know it could go to," she says as we watch her fall from the tower. You know, an awful lot of this montage is made up of people falling down. I knew there was a reason it gradually got better.
My favorite moment is "Dreamz" saying, "Edgardo. I bet you never seen it coming." Ha! I don't know that I've ever seen anyone basically be like, "Ah, [Name]. Really screwed your ass, didn't I?" Edgardo comments that "Dreamz" "messed [him] up." He is still royally pissed, you can tell. Nooooot over it.
Mookie says the game is about alliances. I'll say.
"Alex, my brother for life," "Dreamz" says. We'll see about that, kid. Alex says that he didn't need to win to know how great he is. Somehow, I'm not surprised that he has this outlook. I bet he won't be that articulate again until his arraignment.
"Stacy," Yau Man says, "I know you learned a lot about yourself, and learn a lot about life." Stacy says she learned she's adaptable and resilient. And she knows how to operate a French press, asshole.
And Boo. Who, of course, talks about how great it was to play, as the music swells and we watch the hammock collapse, dropping him to the ground. He's "unbelievably thankful." Probably not for the hammock, though.
All the torches are placed on a (hopefully broken-down) canoe that is set ablaze. Because you know what we do with losers? We burn them. That's right. We burn them.
Back from commercials, we move to the location of the last immunity challenge. Yau Man gives the necklace to Jeff, and "Dreamz" mutters to him, "You'll get it back." Jeff says that this challenge will test your "threshold for pain" and some other stuff. Basically, you're lying against a board that's tilted down so that your head is up, and you're hanging onto a bar with your hands, which is how you keep from sliding down. Also, water will trickle down the board the entire time, which will (1) make it slippery; and (2) annoy you. When you let go, you'll slide down and fall into the water. The angle will get progressively steeper every five minutes. Last one holding on wins immunity and goes to final three -- and here is where Jeff explains that three of them will go up for votes in front of the jury. "Can't get bigger stakes than this," Jeff says.
