Curious about Morgan's fishing spear
Was everyone as shocked as I was when at the beginning of last night's episode we learned that Morgan has had a fishing spear but they have not attempted to use it for the first, what?, 10 days?! :boggle:
And wasn't that quite the summation of the Morgan Tribe experience that when Andrew and Ryan took off to find a cove to fish in they a) get lost and b) don't bring enough water and c) when they reach the far side a storm is coming and the wind is up and the water is too turbulent for sight fishing.
But my point of curiosity is this: Since it apparent that Morgan has had the spear, where was it when (at that point in the game) twice already Drake has been over to 'pillage' their camp and they don't appear to have noticed it? Certainly I've never heard Drake mention searching for a spear but it seems like the sort of thing that especially Christa on her trip (the tribe's second) would have noted. I'm not clear on the rules of pilaging but I thought or I would assume that a tribe cannot attempt blatently to hide their more desirable items? Might they have hidden it in plain sight, so to speak, like leaned it up close against a tree so it would escape notice?
It just strikes me funny that we haven't heard of or seen this spear before last night's episode. Can anyone illuminate me if I'm mistaken in my account.
