We return from break to watch Solana enjoy their reward. LJ is not happy about his new lot on this tribe. He does have an idol, but it'll only buy him a few more days. He hopes that he can be brought in as a teammate with his new Brawny overlords. Trish and LJ are from around the same area, which creates an almost instant bond. LJ's thrilled to have some sort of connection with someone from the other tribe. It's unfortunate for LJ that he's made friends with the outsider on the Brawn tribe. Lindsay tells us that she's disgusted with how Trish tries to flirt with the much younger LJ. Woo and Cliff are talking to each other about how the split really worked out for them. Cliff is very happy to keep most of his tribe with him. He would have been okay if Trish had been on the other tribe and he's worried about what's going on with her and LJ.
Over at Aparri, the Brains make that dejected walk one more time but they're still excited to be in a new camp. Sarah tells us how screwed she is with the tribal switch. Right away she starts asking the other folks what their person chose at the beginning. She tells them that Trish chose the extra rice. This was news to all the Brains as Garrett never told them anything and it's also news to Alexis because Morgan lied about what the decision was. Morgan does her best to deflect and say that she chose idol, but didn't find it. She tells us that she was a little bummed that Sarah outed her like that. She's hoping to start fresh here and tells the group that she didn't find the idol. Alexis tells us that she now knows not to trust Morgan at all. She plans to jump ship right away.
So she runs off to the Brains and suggests an alliance with them. She tells them that her BFF is Jefra on the other team, so she wants to work with them. Spencer is loving this turn of events. Alexis comes off as desperate to him, which suggests fractures and weakness within the Beauties. He says they're very gossipy like high schoolers, and he plans to use that to his advantage. Alexis tells them all about Morgan and that she lies and doesn't work around camp. Later on, Morgan is telling them about how Alexis flirts with LJ and how he's always asking her to twerk and shake her butt. Wow, there's a lot going on here.
Next up is Jeremiah talking to Tasha and Kass saying he thinks Morgan would throw him under the bus in a heartbeat. Tasha asks him about Alexis and he says he's kind of on the outs with his tribe and he'd be happy to go with them and make a solid foursome. Tasha is feeling pretty good with her Brainy alliance looking to be in complete control of their new tribe. It's amazing how the Survivor Gods can smile on you when you FINALLY make the smart play.
