TJ. Who has clearly gotten too big for his hemp britches. Everyone is expecting new rules, because they were told at the outset that there'd be eight keys, all of which have now been given out. But TJ just tells them to nominate three people for a Face Off like usual. Everyone shrugs and is happy to not have to learn anything new. Just like in high school. Tyrie and Dan volunteer. Ev wants to go in, but Tyrie protests. Bananas thinks that's a fine idea and Ev sticks to her guns. TJ comes back in and gives them the twist: the person who wins the Face Off will get his or her key by taking it from anyone who already had one. Bananas interviews overzealously mouth breathing about this twist.
Commercials. Strategy. The Family is freaking out that they let Evelyn in and how she'll definitely go after Johnny's key if she wins. Except, I mean, wouldn't anyone who wins go after Johnny's or another alliance person's key? I don't get the drama here. I mean, call me cynical, but it seems kind of trumped up. Ryan thinks Kenny and Bananas are kidding themselves if they think they have a safe spot in the boat over to the other island. Ryan looks so cute in his cargo pant pedal pushers.
The camera glances away for a minute and then comes back to the same spot again. Great transition. Evelyn is now talking with The Family and it seems like they're all hatching a plan for her to take Kellyanne's key if she wins. Johnny tells her that if she doesn't take Kellyanne's key, they'll make sure Ev's gets taken away after the next Face Off. Ev weighs throwing Kellyanne under the bus with all of those sad, dead under-bus-thrown chefs from Top Chef against the $75,000 she stands to win.
Commercials. Ev tells Kellyanne about the situation, and the whole thing turns kind of bittersweet. Kellyanne tells her she's sad that she's considering it, and then talks with Cohutta and says the same thing. Maybe it's the terrible emo it's all set to, but man you guys, I'm starting to love this little Restalyned freak.
Ugh. Night again. It feels like these episodes are so, so long this season, with no challenges to fast forward through. Bananas is blabbing to Dan. And then about Dan to the camera. He's chosen to wear his Gossip Girl headband to declare that he thinks Dan really deserves to be here, since he's such a tough Marine and all. (Overexposed flashbacks to Dan rolling around in fatigues; I didn't realize Johnny's imagination had such trouble with adjusting the contrast.) Robin and Dan slur at one another. Robin thinks that Dan is being really distant from her lately. As in: in the past few hours. Way to be weird and clingy, Robin. Does anyone else feel like they just want to freeze Robin at the exact moment she told Johanna off and just remember her like that forever?
