Back at the boat jetty, Team Who is just arriving. They hop in a boat and take off for the trawler, followed closely by Kelly and Jon. "As fast as you can go, buddy," Kelly encourages her driver.
THWAP-THWAP! We hear arrows whizzing by targets over on the beach. Or at least we hear very lifelike reproductions of same. That was a great little cut and a great music cue, incidentally. "You're getting closer than anybody else," Reichen says to Chip. "Chuck, you can do it," Millie says. "Don't let them worry you," she says, patting his stomach in that way that always makes you aware that the more people tell you not to worry or feel stressed out, the more they're envisioning you tied to the railroad tracks in an old silent movie. In a quickie interview, Millie watches Chuck while saying that he'll do fine as long as he doesn't "get threatened." ClownJon is apparently not threatened, because he finally gets his arrow to hit the target, albeit just barely. The log has a flesh wound, if I may make the analogy. He and Al take off for the blow pipe, and there, ClownJon starts to...well, blow the pipe.
"Come on, baby," Millie says miserably as Chuck continues to work with what is probably the worst bow and arrow form I have ever seen. Basically, Chuck is pointing the bow upward, with his elbow dropped down, which makes the arrow fly upward into the air. Furthermore, he's barely pulling back on the bow at all. Basically, the arrows seem to take this very discouraged, loopy-looking path off toward the target, and he has almost no ability to aim. ["I'm no archery medalist, God knows, but Chuck handles it like it's a Gameboy." -- Sars] Chip, meanwhile, hits the target using a more conventional stance in which you actually sight along the arrow. The happy Chipsters take off, leaving a depressed Chuck to stare after them.
ClownJon hits the blow pipe target, and he and Al run off in their clown-like way toward the spear game.
Poor Chuck is now talking to himself in an effort to get himself to get the stupid arrow to hit the stupid target. "Come on, Chuck, get it," he says, with just about the same lack of emotion he shows the rest of the time. Millie voices over that she was "agonizing over every lost arrow." Well, exactly. And I think her agony shows through quite clearly, and he's quite aware of it. And it's really, really not helping. "I was so scared he was going to get in that downward spiral, and...not be able to perform." She didn't just say "not be able to perform," did she? Sigh. Chuck shoots another arrow, which leaves his bow, um...limply.
