Rule in Chaos

John is less keen on sending someone strong to Redemption Island, and says that Vytas is “kind of going on supposition on that one.” “It’s a no-brainer,” says Vytas. John is also not keen on sharing his idol clue. Dummy. If everyone knows you have an immunity idol clue, it looks super-shady if you don’t share it with your alliance. The guys urge John to find the idol so “at least we know who doesn’t have it.” He goes off to read it, and it basically says it’s under a tree on the path between camp and where the tribe get their water.
At Galang, everyone tells Rupert’s Laura how sorry they are that Rupert has gone, but she says “I am surprisingly OK. There’s a little bit of sense of relief that I don’t have to worry about him.” Of course, she doesn’t have “my dream of playing with my husband,” but there are consolations too. Like not playing with her husband.
Meanwhile, Colton is frustrated because it “feels like middle school” and everyone just wants to have “campfire chats.” You would think that Colton, who seems to think of himself as a delightful, charming, effervescent personality, would enjoy the opportunity to spend all day chatting around a campfire impressing everyone with his wit and amusing stories. But he hates it! He’d much rather be in the middle school where everyone schemes against each other.
So off he goes to tell Gervase that Laura? should go first. Then he tells Monica that Tyson said they wanted to get rid of her. Then he goes to Tina out in the water and says that Gervase is cool with getting rid of Aras. “Gervase?” questions Tina, knowing that Gervase has been in an alliance with both her and Aras long before they even arrived in the Philippines and is not thinking at all about getting rid of Aras.
When Tina gets back on land, Kat approaches and asks if Colton was strategizing against her. Poor Kat, paranoid already. Tina says that it was about what will happen if the other tribe loses. Kat says in interview that she can’t have Colton turn on her. “He loves that stuff, he thrives on that, and it’s sick.”
Later that night, Kat and Colton are talking, and Kat says that “Tina freaked out because you were over-strategizing with her.”
“What did she say?”
Kat avoids answering by saying, “you’re so interested in what she said because you want to know what she told me.”
“I’m just going to go get her,” says Colton, and gets up to do that. Kat tries to call him back, but when she says she doesn’t know exactly what Tina said, it’s back on again. Colton interviews about how “I can rule in chaos.” Who wants to rule on Day 6? Day 6 rulers lose Survivor.
Eventually, Tina is dragged out to talk with Colton and Kat, and Kat is forced to say that Tina said “that we were over-strategizing.” Colton finger-points at her and says “no” and then repeats Kat’s exact words to him back to her. Then Colton tells Kat to calm down or she’ll be voted out.
