Tara gets to her flag first, but Sione is pretty close behind. Not close enough, though. Tara wins another challenge and becomes reflective about how her life has changed and stuff. Sione is very upset about losing. Again.
Back at the ranch, Bob's team (except Ron and including Helen) discuss the upcoming weigh-in and Laura's power. Sione says Ron is off campaigning to Laura to get rid of him or Filipe. Kristin says as long as Ron is gunning for the Tonga cousins, she's fine. Plus, she gave Laura breakfast in bed. Filipe asks Kristin if she'd vote for Ron if he fell below the yellow line again. She won't say. Girl talks more than anyone else except when she has something interesting to say, it seems. Kristin says that she's afraid to commit to voting Ron out, because then someone will tell Ron she said that, and he'll try to kill her. In fact, she doesn't even want him to see her walking with his enemies. Filipe starts yelling at her and she decides to stop walking with the group and pretends to tie her shoe. With that, everyone symbolically walks alone and Kristin says so much money is at stake that anyone can turn against anyone else.
After the break, Helen is still walking, this time with Laura. Helen advises Laura to make really fucking sure that she won't fall below the line before having Tara throw the weigh-in. She urges Laura not to throw the weigh-in at all. "Mark my words... it will backfire in your face!" she says. They should listen to Helen, because she's steadily and impressively lost a lot of weight in this game and is the skinniest person there now. By a longshot. Helen then says that Laura may well take advantage of Tara falling below the line to get rid of the biggest competition in the house, and Laura says no way but interviews "that's a little weird." Not for Helen, who let her daughter leave the ranch so she could stay. Her own daughter! Laura and Tara, she points out, aren't even related. They're just friends. Carla and Joelle were friends, too. Laura wonders if Helen can be trusted. Trusted to talk sense to you? Yes. But I don't trust Laura to take her good advice.
Bob meets with his team. They all hate each other. Time to talk! Ron claims that the brown team has always had the blue team's back, but the blue team didn't have theirs in return, thanks to Helen convincing them to vote for Ron. Sione doesn't appreciate the implication that he doesn't have a mind of his own. Bob wants there to be some kind of reconciliation, but that's not going to happen. Especially since the only person with a vote tonight is Laura. Kristin brings up Tara's possible attempt to throw the weigh-in, which is the worst-kept secret in the house. Kristin doesn't think Tara will be able to go through with it, but Bob thinks she will. With that, it's time for the last-chance workout.
