Recap / Total Drama Hide And Be Sneaky

Go To

The campers play a game of hide and seek with Chef, while Duncan forms a guys alliance with Geoff, DJ and Owen.


  • Actually a Good Idea: Leshawna hides in the water, not far from home base. This is the only place that Chef forgets to look, and she wins because of it.
  • Answer Cut: This confessional exchange between Heather and Lindsay:
    Lindsay: I think she [Heather] really respects my strategical ideas.
    (cut to Heather)
    Heather: I've got flip-flops that have more brains than her.

  • Bait-and-Switch: When Chris asks Chef to demonstrate his water gun, it looks as if he's going to demonstrate on Duncan … only to turn towards Chris and force him back with the full force of the water several meters away from where he was standing.
    Chris: (angrily) NOT ON ME DUDE!!!
  • Cannot Keep a Secret: Owen breaks down and reveals the guys alliance to Gwen... who wasn't even remotely suspicious or aware of its existence.
  • Cat Fight: Heather and Leshawna are revealed to have had one in the washrooms, which DJ mentions when Duncan suggests an alliance between the guys.
  • Friend Versus Lover: Geoff is torn between his love for Bridgette and his kinship with the guys.
  • Groin Attack: Owen "lands on his keys" after falling through the roof that he was hiding on top of with DJ.
  • Hidden in Plain Sight: Gwen covers herself with a grassy camouflage in order to hide. This would have worked if she wasn't in the middle of an open field, and Chef steps on her, causing her to reveal herself.

  • High-Altitude Interrogation: How Duncan forces Owen into the alliance. Only for it to be a small ledge barely 2 metres in height.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: After all the abuse and mistreatment from Heather, Lindsay just now starts to think that Heather is not that nice, but she still considers her to be her BFF in the competition.
  • Pet the Dog: Izzy finds Leshawna in her hiding place after she falls off the dock, but she doesn't reveal Leshawna's hiding place to Chef.
  • Plot Hole:
    • Since Geoff didn't vote for Bridgette, wouldn't that have resulted in a tie between her and Duncan since both ended up with the same number of votes against them (Gwen, Leshawna, and Bridgette voted for Duncan while he, DJ, and Owen voted for Bridgette)?
    • While it is known that Heather & Lindsay voted for Owen, it's never specified as to who Izzy voted for.

  • Potty Emergency: Owen and DJ were outside the washrooms trying to hold it in while this was happening.
  • Revenge: Leshawna vows to do this to Heather when consoling Gwen after Trent's elimination.
  • Symbolic Blood: Lindsay's nail polish.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Lindsay, who just can't seem to hide all that well.
  • Waif-Fu: Izzy being able to go toe-to-toe with Chef in a fistfight, despite Izzy being a slim teenage girl and Chef being a huge muscular adult man.
  • Worthy Opponent: Chef finds Leshawna to be this after she outsmarted him by hiding in the water and reaching home base, giving an approving nod after everbody rushes to congratulate her.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Heather says that she will dump Lindsay when she finds her to be not useful anymore. She does just that in the next episode.

How well does it match the trope?
