Elka is on the phone with someone. She explains that Hollywick and Theo have been winning everything, and that they came in last place today. Elka gives an evil little laugh. Go, Elka.
The contestants pile back into the vans to return to their villas. Emily voice-overs that Timmy also received an email from Chadwick, although it wasn't as nasty as Emily's. Emily and Timmy discuss the issue in whispers so that the others don't overhear. Timmy says that he didn't read the whole thing, but that he read enough to laugh. Emily asks whether Timmy said anything to anyone. Timmy didn't. In an interview, Emily says that she doesn't want enemies, but that she really believes that the Wicks think she is the devil.
That night, Emily tells Elka about Chadwick's email. Elka appears to know about it already. Emily says that Chadwick ranted on and on for two pages, and that Timmy got a similar email, but that his was more positive. Why would Chadwick even bother? What was he hoping to accomplish? As a Christian, isn't he supposed to turn the other cheek? That phrase always inspires me to sing a few verses of "Coward of the County." Emily says that she's really upset with herself. Elka doesn't understand why, until Emily says that she deleted the email. Oh, big mistake. Although as someone who receives her fair share of hateful email, I can understand the impulse. I generally delete it right away, or else I might respond and start some sort of stupid flame war that is never, never worth it. Now I only save them if they are unintentionally hilarious. In an interview, Emily says that Chadwick is home and bitter, and that he needs someone to hate, because it makes losing feel a little bit better for a while.
Mike and Tara sit out on the wall and talk. Hey, this is the same night that they had their big conversation about their "relationship"! I'm so confused about the timing of this episode. I'm guessing that Mike and Tara's relationship went on longer than we were actually shown, but they compressed it all into one episode for the storyline's sake. Tara tells Mike about the Chadwick email. Mike can't believe it. Tara reminds him of the drama that happened, and says that Chadwick blames Emily. Mike is shocked. This leads me to believe that Tara is on Emily's side here, but it gets a little confusing later on. In an interview, Tara says that none of them is used to people being brutal, but that Chadwick is obviously very angry.
