In a particularly painful night-vision interview, "Dreamz" insists that his decision isn't going to weigh on him at all -- he's got "no regrets," and he even claims that he "planned it out step by step." This is where you start to sense what he's going to do. He goes so far as to tell Earl and Cassandra that maybe they'll respect what he did -- "not that I'd care if y'all didn't," which couldn't be further from the truth -- and to interview that everybody else was a snake, so he's got no issues. Which might be convincing, a little bit, if it weren't for that interview in which he made clear that this was his walk-the-walk moment, and now it's gone.
Day 39 dawns at Bula Bula. Cassandra marks it off on the calendar tree. As she does, Earl and "Dreamz" sit in the background. She mentions that they've all been in the same underwear for 39 days, then admits that she actually threw out her underwear a long time ago. ["Bringing the season-long Ways In Which Cassandra And Lindsay Lohan Are The Same total to: 1." -- Joe R] Earl tells us that this is the last day on the island. "Game over," he says. He's happy, he says. The three of them take a walk together, and while they don't have much energy, Earl says they have enough to look at each other and nod from time to time. And then they come across a basket of goodies for breakfast, and that puts some pep in their step. It turns out that there are more goodies being dropped by plane, but when the plane finally arrives, it dumps the food out in the water, not on the beach. Don't you hate it when the plane misses your house? Cassandra admits that she can't swim as Earl puts in the flippers and heads out into the water to retrieve the box. There actually weren't many swimming challenges this year, which is probably lucky for her. Once Earl returns with the food, they all sit down to breakfast, christening themselves "the three amigos," down one (sniffle!) from "the core four." Cassandra interviews that she's just grateful still to be here, considering that she's the older, out-of-shape lady who couldn't swim. Oh, people who come on Survivor and can't swim. How I do not get you. She says that she got to the end against all the odds.
And now, it's time for the "Hell With Charity Auctions" Bonfire Of Highly Desirable Items. Earl and "Dreamz" talk about how they're going to burn everything. Earl does a little monologue about how this is going to be burned ("Dreamz": "Burned!") and that's going to be burned ("Dreamz": "Burned!"), and it's really pretty funny. "Dreamz" calls it a "liquidation sale" in which "everything must go." "It's a fire sale," Earl offers. They start burning stuff. "Dreamz" takes this opportunity to give the speech he must give about how having been homeless helped him through this experience, and it's remarkable that he of all people could be in the position of potentially winning a million dollars. Which, of course, he isn't, really, but we can let that go. Earl throws somebody's underpants on the fire, noting, "That's really gotta burn." "Dreamz" is happy to tell us that the struggle and pain are over. Oh, kid, I would not assume. "I feel like I'm standing next to Oprah!" he says happily. Well, you're about to feel like you're standing next to Jerry Springer, so get ready, kid.
