What is it about those in power that makes you want to root against them? It must be their corruptible nature. Reigning captain, Azmyth, held on to his hat after the black crew won this week's grueling challenge. This time, however, when divvying up the $40K prize, he and his officers preferred ye old 60/40 booty split over the share-and-share-alike split that had kept Az in power. Between that and the intermittent accent, as well as the self-referential use of "Triad," I'm ready for a change of power. As is Laurel, who catapulted herself to the rank of favorite in my standings by calling Azmyth a "superfreak in a blue coat." My second favorite is JD, who is clearly in the underdog position yet consistently keeps the show interesting with his maneuvers to stay in the game. Whether he's ponying up $12K to buy an unnecessary pardon or making out with Nessa, JD is the perfect foil to Captain Azmyth. And let's face it, if JD hadn't played so hard in the beginning, he wouldn't even have the money necessary to be a threat to Azmyth now. I'm looking forward to the showdown between these two adversaries, and there better be some real live saber action involved. This crew, once happy under its dreadlocked leader, has turned completely against him - yet not enough to mutiny. They did make a concerted effort, however, to upset the leadership by putting everything they had into the most strenuous challenge yet. Joy and Kendra struggled to keep up with the others, but it was their weak performances that earned them each a black mark in Pirates court. JD got his for being JD, but he smooth-talked his way out of any votes. I almost wish that Louie had been marked so that we could hear him utter more entertaining sentences like "the importance of pleading your case is extremely important." Had Joy listened to the wisdom in Louie's words, she might still be around to stumble through another challenge, but alas, she was cut adrift. What do you think? Is the Triad playing a smart game with their blatant alliance? Is JD's flirtation with Nessa genuine or is it pure strategy? Will they ever choose a female captain?
