Once back at camp, the loved ones get the tour and begin to settle in. Justice is really proud of his sister, and Miles says he hasn’t even started to miss his bro yet. Malcolm tells us that his brother is always trying to get a laugh and be the center of attention….
Dude needs to STFU
Malcolm doesn’t want his brother to cost him the game.
Meanwhile, Skupin Jr. continues in his dad’s footsteps by climbing a coconut tree and ending up a bloody mess.
Just keep him away from the damn fire!
Lisa and her brother talk a walk along the beach. She tells him about her final four alliance, but tells him that she really doesn’t want Malcolm to make the final three. She fills him in on all of her mistakes and he says it’s his job to remind her that she needs to think of this as a game. He even tells her that he doesn’t think Malcolm would even hold it against her if she voted him out; he’d respect her playing the game.
They meet up with the Skupins and have a little pow wow about getting Malcolm out of the game. They think this next vote would be the perfect time to get him out as he’s only got this time and the next tribal to play his idol. Since they’ve all held true to their word every other time, he shouldn’t be expecting it and it would be almost foolish for him to play it.
Shiiiiiiiiiit. Their plan could totally work. There have already been a couple of times that I thought were too close for comfort, and I really don’t want to see Malcolm leave the game with the idol in his pocket. DAMMIT!!
To solidify their plan they have a little prayer circle. Lisa asks god to bless their plan. Well, first she asks god to bless Malcolm for giving them this time to plot behind his back. Then she asks for his blessing on their plan and protect it. If he wants Malcolm to win, or anyone else, they just want his will to be done.
Especially if it aligns with what we want.
They also think Malcolm looks like Jesus. All the better to nail him to the cross, right?
Malcolm can sense that Lisa’s brother is giving her strength; he’s worried that he may have snapped her back to her senses and got her thinking about how dumb it would be to sit next to him at the end.
Lisa tells us she doesn’t think that god chooses sides; she doesn’t think that just because you pray for it that god will make your football team win. She thinks he’s so much bigger than that. They’re just hoping that he blesses their plan and helps them get closer to winning a million dollars. He’s a win win god.
And I hope he helps me win
