Notes: It's truly amazing how Blake can go from on death's doorstep, to leaping like a delighted elf in the RC, to being unable to breathe the next morning, to almost dragging the entire Yaxha tribe through the mud at the IC. Margaret's coddling of him must really work (extremely temporary) wonders! (Although the title is a neat inversion of Brandon's in-confessional wish that Blake would "man up!")
Also, it's odd that poor Lydia was the challenge half of the challenges-vs-camp effort decision Yaxhá made, since Brianna failed at the RC, then sat out the IC, whereas Lydia was present and competent in both. Obviously Gary wouldn't consider including pratfalling Rafe in that "don't want to lose another challenge" calculus, since Rafe has a penis, but still. Or Gary could have nominated himself, for guaranteeing Nakúm a point by stupidly running to Judd's end of the field and tackling him. It would have been easier just to hand Judd the flag.
We never really found out who this Morgan person the Yaxhás booted was, but at least we got multiple shots of her sitting silently in camp. I guess that's a plus for the editors.
Also: Now that both tribes have been to Tribal, everyone has a score. Yay.
- Morgan received 8 votes, from everyone not named Morgan (voted out, 8-1).
- Lydia received 1 vote, from Morgan.
