I'm afraid for myself. I may have actually switched over to liking Boston Rob. While I'm not falling at all for the supposed romance angle, I do have to give him the brass balls trophy. The guy's a playah.
Last night's episode had me laughing out loud and pointing at the TV. The scene where Rob tells Lex and Kathy 'sorry but Lex'll be going next' was absolutely the best Survivor moment from ony of the seasons so far. Lex's hypocritical "but you're my friend, backstabber" was so deliciously enjoyable. I'm sure Colby (or was it Ethan, I always mix the two up) was laughing at that too, seeing as he used the same friendship logic on Lex when Lex was booting his ass out. Very rewarding moment. And I liked Lex, too, but my appreciation of his tactics was dwindling the last few episodes, and disappeared last week when he agreed that keeping Ambuh would be a smart move. Wrong.
That "I'm your friend" moment would have been enough, but as an added bonus, we get to see Kathy cry and grovel. Normally, I'm not one to enjoy seeing people in emotional turmoil, but I enjoyed Kathy's bawling. Why? Because of her reaction to ToughSue's departure from the game, when she blamed Sue for bringing the rest of the players into her troubled sexually molested state of mind. That total lack of empathy was ignorant and selfish, and because of it, I won't miss Kathy when she goes next week, barring her winning immunity.
Good episode, just for that scene.
