There are worse ways to spend the time, but not many.

Dawn is approaching. That would make this pre-dawn. It's pre-dawn and last night we had some action. Stuff happened, like at least one thing happened, and now I'm going to tell you what it is.

Kit Fox was bribed. He was an artisan.

It's day. If you guys vote fast enough we can get another cycle in quickly.

Petal is getting very depressed. Her islands friends are all turning out to be turncoats bribed by the journalists. She doesn't understand why. Don't they like it here? Why would they do that? At least that raving psycho is gone. Petal feels safe going out her front door again.

So safe, in fact, that she thinks it's time to engage in her fourth favourite passtime, behind yoga, sailing Mabel, and deep sea fishing with Jeff probst. Golf. Petal loves golf! She rounds up her clubs and heads out to the range. She starts out on the driving range, then she practices putting, and then she goes for a round a mini golf. And then the big kahuna! She golfs a full 18 holes! She's not very good, but that's not the point. It's relaxing, and cathartic.

Petal is a doofus. She forgot to bring golf balls on her golfing excursion!

Petal heads back to the range after fetching her golf balls. Now shes all ready!

She puts down her tee. She places the golf ball on the tee. She gets her club (driver, an iron, a wood, a putter - she has them all). She swings and......fore!!! It goes sailing overhead! It's a hole in one! Petal even wears her lucky golf hat and funny pants for luck.

Petal is so tired. She doesn't think she is going g to be able to make it through this day. She needs something to perk her up! Something to lift her spirits. Wait! What is that she hears? Island music? Is that....drums?? Kettle drums??? Djembe drums??? Singing??? Dancing??? It is! Petal joins in. She loves music, especially island music andnisland drums. She loves all things about being in the Caribbean.

Petal leaves the drumming. Now she's hungry. Where should she go? I know! The ice cream parlor! It seemed like a perfect spot to people watch. She makes he way there. She buys a huge ice cream cone! Two scoops. One chocolate, one strawberry. She digs in. Delicious.

Once finished her ice cream Petal heads down to the dock in the harbour. She sees all of the fishermen coming in for the day. They've got their fishing nets and all of their prized bluefish. It's been a good day for them. At least it has been for someone.

Last but not least for the day Petal decides to take in some surfing. She's pretty terrible at it, but at least she tries. She paddles out on her board, and tries a few small waves. Success! She feels like she's flying!

Finally Petal heads home in her truck. There is no better way to cruise around the island. Petal plans to cuddle up in her room with a travel magazine, and watch the stars. She loves to gaze out her window at the sound. She also may try to find something on TV. She thinks there's a Bill Paxton movie on. She finds it! This say is looming up! Petal thinks she will have a beer.

Why didn't the jr. bodyguard protect the vocal artisan and why didn't the bartender block the suspected journalist

A mislynch and we lose.

I'm expendable and with the absentees, we again need the vote

No Kill

I realize this seems counter intuitive but defensive as it is, it's better than a mislynch. A mislynch and we lose. That will also be true tomorrow but then, at least, it will be 4 vs 3 instead of 5 vs 3 and we'll have better odds of guessing right. Which is good when we can't afford to guess wrong.

Where is the other artisan.

Im the other artisan.

VHB, your sentiments are right. We can't afford a mislynch today.

On every nights 1-4 a few people were never randomly assigned a lodging. Big cat, laserblast, and VHB. Everyone else had a random lodging or two, so they're less likely targets. Now, 2 nights in a row VHB was at the scanned lodging and didn't come up a journalist, which either means he's good, is the minion, or was scrambling where he was (which would be really risky). So he can live today.

Laserblast I think we should give the benefit of the doubt because he claimed good. And we can only Lynch one person per day.

big cat is acting pretty suspicious. She should be prime lynch candidate today.

Also, because VHB might be the minion he shouldnt be mayor. grouchypants

Good guys, please talk to me. Let me know if reasoning is bad!

INT. Michael’s hut. It’s sparse — a bed with a sleeping bag packed underneath, a few chests, seashells that spell out “WALT” strung together and hanging from the straw.

Self-forgiveness was treating Michael well. Boredom, however, was not. People kept leaving Wolf Island and, well, a man could only talk to the same handful of people so often without feeling the stirrings of discontent.

Ah, well — what did it matter? He’d be taking the ferry soon enough; this chapter in his life was closing. But he felt an obligation to this site of his spiritual renewal. It had treated him well, and the last thing it needed was some muckraking hipster dweeb from, I dunno, fucking MARYLAND ruining it for everyone else.

To pass the time, Michael reaches under his bed and pulls out a giant glass bong, the one he bought at the Dockside Bar from the glassblower who was renting some time in the Artisans’ pottery shop. Not the greatest thing he’s ever smoked out of, and this dimebag of schwag weed wasn’t great, but hell — it beat the joint he got from the madman (who, let’s be clear, definitely actually pissed himself).

Michael takes a few hits and lets his mind wander.

Grouchypants was cool. What’s more, she made sense. Why the hell was no one suspicious of a talking goddamned whale? Like, Michael knows he's high, but WHAT THE FUCK, A TALKING WHALE. At the end of the day, if the islanders voted to send the whale on its way, Michael would be satisfied, and he was glad to see someone as clearheaded as Ms. Pants point that finger.

Still, he couldn’t help but wonder about the weirdo loner types in this village. Had anyone seen Efreet in the last two weeks? Was he, like, OK? Or was he hiding some deep secret?

And Michael was especially interested in this Metersk character — all over other threads in the island, active in the Slack Room at the village center, but nowhere to be found when it came time to making the only decisions that actually mattered around here.

Michael resolved to confront the man and ask some hard questions — if he could ever corner him — as soon as his mind cleared. In the meantime, he'd encourage other islanders, like Geoff, to join him in putting Metersk on the chopping block, even if only temporarily. The village deserved answers.

I was a good lazy islander too until I fell in love with a beautiful Canadian gal. She made me want to be better. She made me a better dad, a more generous and passionate lover and a better pilot. We were coming to help our grieving family and friends here on the island when a giant pelican flew into the engine. My plane crashed on approach and my priestess wife died along with a huge part of me. Now I have nothing left of my old life. After fighting so hard to find the truth and get justice for our island friends and fighting for their way of life I had to accept the generous offer the journalists made me. Now I have all the Fiji coal security I could have eve asked for and I am surfing again. So I think in a way it's all for the best.

Von Ho Balanced picks up a conch shell and blows three triumphant toots on it. Noting it's aesthetically pleasing color pattern, he feels authority radiating from its spindles, and he gently packs it into his sack. Perhaps it will come in handy, or be decisive, tomorrow.

Von Ho Balanced dips into the petty vandalism and kleptomania one would normally expect from his rambunctious mainlander niece, as he starts wandering around the island snuffing out the torches in front of people's houses. He swipe two and heads home with them, stuffing them clumsily and all-too-snugly into his own brazier, giving him three.

Apologies for the lack of lore, I'm not at home.

Von Ho Balanced wondered who would put the limes in his coconuts now?

They were back to 4 to 2 and on the verge of winning -- or losing -- everything. It all hinged on what they chose...

Michael is kinda bummed. He really liked the bartender and was, frankly, a little hurt that he'd be a sellout. Plus, he thoroughly enjoyed being served by a fellow with such a charming British lilt.

Ms. Pants? Von Ho? Did anyone see Geoff overserve anyone last night, man? That's at least one person we know we can keep around on this tourist trap.

In the meantime, I still think metersk has gotta answer for flaking out on us.

Von Ho Balanced blows three blasts on the conch shell he "found" on the beach last night and bellows authoritatively.

Well it's definitely not efreet, because he cast the deciding vote for Big Cat yesterday, and nobody would doom a fellow wolf that directly when they didn't strictly have to, and who would notice another day going by without Efreet weighing in. Not on a day where they could win with a mis-lynch. Right?

Grouchy is the other artisan. R&C claimed grom and nobody has disputed that that I know of.

It's not me.

So metersk or laserblast?

Or we could punt with a no kill until we get 3-2 tomorrow [because I don't trust myself to get a blind guess right], have a 40% shot (instead of 33%), and maybe stretching things out another day will give the wolf more time to slip up.
