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?
Face Off. There's a plank bridge suspended over the water. They walk one by one across the bridge, each time removing a plank and throwing it into the water, making the bridge harder and harder to cross. So they get to that. This seems like something Evelyn could win. They get to a point where there's six planks missing in a row; Dan winds up to leap them and overshoots it and falls into the water. He's out. Evelyn removes a plank that will require her to get a short running stop, jump onto a single plank and then launch over six planks. She totally kills it! This girl is a strange little dynamo. Tyrie widens the jump to eight planks long, rears back to get his running start but then chickens out at the last minute. He puts his hands on the rails and gets disqualified. Back on the shore Johnny thinks that Tyrie did it on purpose. Tyrie tells him to shut up and get up on the bridge and do it if he thinks it's so easy.
