Loved Scott's nightmare at the start: "Man-shark, get away!" Heh. Luckily for him, Fang had his sights set on Brick, Anne Maria, Mike, Cameron, and Dakota this week. He didn't even think
about trying to catch Scott.
This week, the campers, with Brick now moved to the Rats, had to send one of their teammates down underwater to retrieve a set of tied-up water skis while the rest of the team pumped air down to them (as they were wearing old-school diving suits). Jo had a good lead, but thanks to simple luck (read: an accidental, incidental assist from Fang), Brick managed to win the challenge for the Rats. This gave them an advantage going into the second part of the challenge: a full-fledged motorboat to use as compared to a slow, motorized dinghy the Maggots would be stuck with.
The second part of the challenge saw the campers racing on their respective boats toward buoys containing bells they'd have to ring . . . as well as water mines. There were four, but one blew up before the challenge started, leaving only three, so the first team to ring and blow up two out of three bells using seagull guns (each containing three hybrid seagull-rattlesnakes) would win the challenge and be safe from elimination. Well, the teams needed to each have three people skiing (Sam, Dawn, and Brick for the Rats, Anne Maria, Cameron, and Mike for the Maggots), one person manning the gun (Scott for the Rats, Jo for the Maggots), and one person driving (Lightning for the Rats, Zoey for the Maggots). Well, Scott did his level best to try and sabotage the challenge again, but in the end, the Maggots still ended up winning for reasons only partially related to it. Even worse for him? Dawn figured it out and was planning on exposing his traitorous ways. Unfortunately, she said this in a confessional, where Scott happened to be listening in the back. He had to make a move and quick.
And here was the move. Apparently, things were going missing around the camp -- Lightning's protein bars (Sam had a sarcastic remark for this that was AWESOME), Anne Maria's hairbrush, and Jo's whistle among them. Scott was stealing all of these items (and to make himself look innocent, he even threw in his shark tooth, which he got from Fang in week two, to make it look like it'd been stolen) and planning on framing Brick for the whole thing just to get the new guy booted from their team. Unfortunately, Dawn figuring out his game forced him to switch the frame-up target to her. And everyone bought it hook, line, and sinker. (I felt really bad for her prior to elimination. Her sad sigh made my heart sink . . . and then break. She clearly knew she was well and truly fucked. Anyone else wanna give her a hug at that moment?)
Sure enough, she was. Dawn was unanimously voted out at the Campfire Ceremony. She thought she pulled out the idol Chris had hidden on the island . . . but it was a cheap knockoff that Scott had whittled. (Though at least Dawn got one over on him by throwing the knockoff in his face.) She made one final promise to save her team by revealing the traitor, but she took way too long at making her overly-dramatic speech that she ended up getting launched on the Hurl of Shame right before she could expose Scott. And in a garbage bag, no less, which was super embarrassing, no doubt.
I knew I'd be sad when Dawn left, and I was. I almost cried. This episode really reflected badly on most of the other campers. How could any of them have believed that Dawn would do that to them? In any case, Scott did it once again. First B, then Dawn. And probably more victims to come.
There was a guest appearance from Bridgette! Lovely to see her!
Sam and Dakota's relationship was put on hold for the week, but the Zoey/Mike/Anne Maria triangle got quite a bit of focus.
Cameron was once again a hero, even though he was badly injured in the process. He's proving himself as quite the player.
Scott's got the villain role down to a "T." He's even sporting the standard evil villain's laugh now! I think he's the first TD villain to have one. (Alejandro might've had one last season, but if he did, his voice actor did a poor job of making it sound
Looks like Mike might be joining Scott on Fang's shit list now that he's bent back his snout with a single punch. First taking his tooth, and now hitting him the snout? Shark's not having a good time.
I can see a catfight brewing between Zoey and Anne Maria any day now.
Except for the boot, decent episode.
LOVE: Brick, Cameron, Jo, Mike, Sam, and Zoey.
LIKE: Anne Maria, Dakota, and Scott.
NEUTRAL: No one.
HATE: No one.
