The survivors return to their camp and no one seems mad about the blindsiding of LJ until they started talking about who's in and who's out. Jefra starts to wonder if she's on the bottom and they all realize that every time there is an alliance of six, it never lasts.
The next morning, Tony rushes out to build a surveillance shack near the water well. And it immediately pays off when Jefra and Trisha amble by, chatting about not really trusting Tony. Trisha is impressed by how Tony lied to them about the plan to vote out LJ, saying he deserves and Academy Award. Jefra is OK with voting out LJ, but she's upset about how Tony went about it.
Tony says that he trusts Woo and Kass, but now that he knows Jefra doesn't trust him, he doesn't trust her. Oh my.
Before Tony learns any more, it's time for the reward challenge. Two teams of four will paddle fairly large boats out and on the way back, they have to collect paddles that are tied onto floating boxes. Once all of the paddles are retrieved, they must row back and use the paddles, which have letters on them, to solve a three-word puzzle. Winners get to have a feast.
The teams are Woo, Tony, Trish and Kass for orange; Jeremiah, Spencer, Jefra and Tasha for purple. It's neck-and-neck, but purple wins the reward. Jeremiah apologizes for head-butting someone, and Tony is upset that his team was trying to spell "fight" with a Y. The solution, by the way, was one of the five Jeff Probst trademarked phrases, "Worth playing for."
Tony tells the camera that now they are in trouble because Jefra, who doesn't trust him any more and doesn't think she fits in with the alliance any more, is headed off on a reward with the outcast players. Of course, if Jefra's team would have lost, she still would have been spending the afternoon with the outcasts, and perhaps feeling even more alienated.
Kass is tired of losing, but if she's going to win the game she needs to stick with her alliance. She thinks that they need to keep the annoying people and get rid of the threats. If Spencer doesn't win immunity, he's gone.
Tony keeps saying things like this could be the end and a disaster is brewing, talking about Jefra dining with the loser winners. He wants to talk strategy, but Trish wants to collect the limes and papayas she just found. She enlists Woo's help because he can climb trees, which he does and shakes down some that Trish describes as being the size of the departed Morgan's breasts. On his way down, the branch he was holding onto breaks and he falls to the ground. He's broken his behind, but he's Woo, so he says he'll be fine.
Meanwhile, Tony is strategizing with himself and challenge winners are hiking through an amazing cave to their barbecue feast. Chicken, ribs, potato salad, iced tea, and a lot of bitter feelings from Jefra.
They all quickly agree that Tony needs to go. Spencer asks Jefra about working with them and she says she needs another rib before she can decide. But before she can eat the rib of decision, the waiter gives them letters from home. Jefra starts crying before she even opens the letter from her mom, which turned out to be prophetic in that Mom urges her not to let her heart rule her head. Jefra jumps ship and climbs on board with Spencer, Tasha and Jeremiah. Good thing that Tony is now spending his afternoon looking for the idol with "special powers."
And it's time for the immunity challenge. Today's test involves balancing on a slanted and graduated beam while balancing a ball on a flat plate attached to a pole. They will move down the beam at regular intervals, moving onto narrower sections. They also will have to move their hands down the post. Three minutes in and four people are out. Spencer, Woo, Jeremiah and Tasha make it through the first round and move down to the next level.
In the second round, Jeremiah falls out. Spencer, Tasha and Woo are on to round three, standing on the narrowest part of the beam and holding the pole near the very bottom, making balancing their bodies and the balls very difficult. Woo is the first to go, leaving Tasha and Spencer to battle it out, but it is Tasha winning immunity for the second time in a row.
When they get back to camp, Tony makes a beeline for a funky looking tree where he thinks the idol may be hidden. Trisha talks to Jefra and senses that something is wrong. Jefra says she's had it with Tony.
The crazy tree doesn't have anything, so Tony checks the tree that looks like a rocket ship. Sure enough, he finds the special idol. He almost cries. Turns out the power of the idol is that unlike other hidden immunity idols, it can be played after the votes have been read. It also can't be played for another person, only the holder.
A euphoric Tony rushes off to hide the idol and wash up, where he takes a soak with Trish, Kass, Woo and Jefra. Tony swears on all of his family members and body parts that he's loyal to them. Discussion turns to hidden idols. Kass thinks Spencer has one; if he does, Woo says, they are screwed.
All the soaking and swearing gets to Jefra, who tells Jeremiah that she's going back into her alliance. Sorry.
The alliance of outcasts then have their water meeting. Jeremiah confesses that he is a fashion model and Spencer admits he has an idol. They decide to vote for Woo instead of Tony.
Spencer tells Probst that the three of them know where they stand, at the bottom. Jefra admits that she was bitter and upset, but she's now back in the fold. Spencer is disgusted. He says Tony has made all of these promises that he has broken. Trish says they called Tony out and he's agreed to fall into line. Spencer tries to throw more dirt on Tony.
Jeremiah says that Spencer is a bigger threat, and Spencer says he doesn't blame him, but that Jeremiah is the most likable guy around, so he's the bigger threat. Tony once again says he has a bag of tricks that he just might play. Spencer scoffs, and it's time to vote.
When Probst asks for hidden idols, Spencer plays his. When he sees Tony pull something out of his bag, he almost gives his idol to Jeremiah, but instead plays it for himself. Tony calls Spencer an unschooled boy and tosses away the fake idol he was holding. Probst and the rest of the world is confused.
The votes are for Woo and Jeremiah, and the fashion model takes a stroll down the runway to Loser Lodge.
Next time: Spencer plots to make Tony even more paranoia than he is, and Tony promises chaos at the next tribal council.
