We come back from break to the Ta Keo picnic. Spencer tells us about how happy he is about the meal, but in the back of his mind, he doesn't know how the new tribe will work out for him. As they eat, they interact a little and talk about their previous tribe. Spencer says that he's trying to do whatever he can to work with Kass. Savage is just thrilled to be away from his hellhole in Angkor. He tells us how much he really likes Spencer, but he plans to use Kass's hatred of Spencer to get him out of the game.
We join a conversation with Kass where he tells her how tight he is with Woo and Abi and that they could totally dump Spencer and take control of the game. Of course, Kass is down for that as she has no desire to play the game with Spencer. At all. The next thing we see is Andrew locking this alliance down with Woo, Abi, Kass and Ciera. He tells them that Spencer is the target and that they'll need to tell him it is Ciera going home...that way he won't think anything is up. This sounds great to everyone but Ciera. She says that she is not thrilled about being the one thrown under the bus. She says she'll take one for the team, but this isn't one of those times. She wonders why he wouldn't suggest Woo as the fake vote, as he wasn't even an original Bayon.
Speaking of Bayon, we join them as Keith and Kimmi are getting reacquainted around the fire. He's telling her to not drop whatever is on the end of her stick and she's busy dropping whatever was on the end of her stick. We catch up with Joe and Wentworth talking about Kelley's position as the only Ta Keo on this new tribe. Joe wants to keep her, so he can have his numbers at the merge. He targets Stephen and Kimmi as potential votes, because they're weaker in challenges than Kelley. She tells us that she knows she's on the bottom, but she does have an idol, should she need it. However, if Joe is willing to shield her, she'll be happy to take cover.
The next thing we see is Joe talking with Tasha and Stephen. Stephen is trying to lock down the Kelley vote, should they lose. Joe suggests that maybe they try to stay strong and vote out Kimmi. This freaks out Fishbach. That's a huge red flag to him and he tells Jeremy that Joe wants to vote out Kimmi. Jeremy doesn't like that at all. Stephen tells Jeremy they need to get rid of Joe, immediately. Jeremy tells us that he needs Joe to be around for a while to use as a big, strong guy shield. Stephen leaves Jeremy with that thought and asks him to just think about it. He tells us that he's putting everything he has into winning this game. Sure, it may not manifest itself in challenges, but he is playing hard. He actually starts to get all weepy about this, which is kinda weird. Basically, it boils down to the fact that he didn't take out the golden boy last time around and he was shut out at the final Tribal. He's worried that if he doesn't take out the golden boy this time, he's just repeating the same mistake. He also just loves the idea of making the big move.
