Over And Over, They'll Be A Fool For You
Don and MJ check in last, but they are non-eliminated. Yay!
Remember the slavery monument? Yeah, that was sad. We watch Gus again, giving the Emmy speech, but we now get to see a very interesting Hera interview as well, in which she talks about her extensive thoughts during the race about "what it means to carry an American passport." And you can tell that she has been through a few rounds of "Wow, people really hate us," and knows that her passport has a few meanings other than "Woooo!" She says that she was reminded at the monument of what other people had to endure in order for her to be able to grow up as an American. "I come from everything that America is," she says. "And part of America is the ugliness of slavery." Amen to that, my dear. She is just a lovely person. It's so weird how this season has delivered the biggest dickweeds ever, but also some of the really nicest folks in quite some time.
And now, in a scene so funny it could be from a Robert Altman movie, Spazpants adopts another African local to help them, and it turns out that this guy has an agenda. He undoubtedly sees the cameras and the production, and it appeals to him. And why? Because, like half of the rest of the people on the planet Earth, he has written a movie. And he wants Jonathan to...I don't know, read it? Take it back to Hollywood? Whatever. Anyway, Jonathan asks the guy what his movie is about. The guy, speaking English with an accent that's fairly difficult to penetrate, informs Jonathan that the movie is about "common value we have in us." He gestures to a little girl, saying it's about her, and how she was told, "Go and never come back." Jonathan takes all of this in. "So...it's about a dog? A dog?" "No, man," the guy tells him. That was awesome. It would have been better if the guy had punched him in the mouth, but you can't have everything.
