View Printable version of this article
Deena informs Jenna of their plan to oust Alex, now that Matt has won immunity, not knowing that counteragent Heidi has already spilled the (coffee) beans. Jenna pretends to go along. "I convinced Jenna, Alex has to go. Bye, bye, Alex, " Deena says confidently. Knowing what we know, Deena sounds ominously like Roger in this episode. She's just not questioning the perfection of her plan, like he was doing. "Little fingers are outreaching and it's all falling into place," she gloats. Deena's made her closing arguments to the jury and thinks Alex's conviction is a done deal.
But the jury is still out. "Deena has stabbed us all in the back and I'm so incredibly disappointed and shocked and I can't ever forgive that," Jenna pisses and moans. Foreman Rob wrings his hands and bemoans his position as Monkey in the Middle. "It's like in the mob. There's gonna be a hit on one of my friends and I'm gonna have to look the other way."
Tribal Council: Attorney at Large
Heidi continues her hilarious version of bubblehead jock speak when Probst asks if she's concerned about her knee. "Oh my gosh, yes. My strongest assets to this group are athletic ability and intelligence. Hello? One of them is gone right now!" It's a setup not to be missed. "Which one?" Probst deadpans. Heidi's insightful response? Giggle, giggle, giggle.
Deena joins the ranks of the clueless when she claims that she didn't need immunity. She could take a lesson from Matt because he claims the same thing. "Immunity was a nice thing to have today, but it wasn't absolutely essential." Deena thinks she's a thousand miles from Loser Lodge, when in fact, she's camped out on its doorstep. If she loses, Deena says, it'd come down to a "bug spawned out of the pit of hell."
At the vote, only Christy stays true to Deena. Rob the Ambulance Chaser runs after the in-crowd and votes with Alex, Matt, Jenna, Butch, and Heidi. Jenna digs her claws in one last time. "You lied to me, you betrayed me, you screwed me, now I'm screwing you!" Prosecutor Deena will now view the goings-on at Jacaré from inside the jury box.
Next episode: Alex, Jenna, Heidi, and Rob bask in the heat of the Amazon sun and their own sense of superiority. "We're the majority and the other three know it."
Let's look at the players.
Butch: Dunce. Only your weakness and malleability are keeping you safe. It's only a question of time.
Christy: Even though you were more grossed out than anyone else at the food challenge, you hung in there and ate your grub. Your loyalty to Deena has come to naught and left you vulnerable.
Heidi: After you were bitten by the spider, your knee swelled up to almost normal proportions. You resemble a rag doll in more ways than one - the Scarecrow wanted a brain, too.
Alex: You've assumed Dave's Golden Boy status. Better hope the wretched outcasts don't band together and vote you off as well.
Deena: What we feared from your profile as an aggressive prosecutor has sadly come true. You kept a level head for a long time, and made logical decisions quietly. But emotions - yours and the other women's - did you in. You got overconfident and moved in for the kill. Even though you're the mother of three young kids, you don't know how fickle teenagers can be.
Matthew: Saved by your iron gut and lack of gag reflex. Unless you wake up and get the implant out of your brain, you need to win all the immunity challenges from now on.
Rob: You blew a sure-fire alliance with a trustworthy and able player for three fair-weather friends. You're just a comical and expendable Jughead that they'll ditch as soon they're in jeopardy.
Jenna: Meet Veronica. Like we said last week, and the week before, and the week before that. Vain, shallow, bitchy, and immature. So surprising to see these qualities in a swimsuit model!
