On the soap issue...If I heard correctly, what precipitated the sexual division of the soaps was that Courtney saw that one was covered with black hairs after use by a male...Bruce I think. I can see where shew as coming from...not that women never "shed", but they at least usually pick the obvious hairs off afterwards, so you don't have to be reminded how many scuzzy people you are sharing the soap with. Shane was a jerk.
Also Bruce was making some excuse why he needed the drinking water to wash that I couldn't catch...something about allergies? Water pouring thru the leaves from the sky might make him have a reaction? I don't know...there was something.
Cirie was great. Sad about Sally's parents, and I agree, bonding taking place over that.
Overall, not as good as a regular epi, but not bad.
