It's Christmas time again, which means Santa is getting ready to visit. Not without the help of Campbell, though, who goes to the store and buys a bunch of gifts for the workers.
Since the workers are um, working all day long, they don't have the time (let alone the money) to run into town and get gifts for their kids.
Last year Buchanan had the idea to purchase them for the workers and let them all go shopping right there in the camp.
It was simple, really: He'd get Campbell to deduct the amount from their pay for their gifts, and everybody would be happy.
So this year Campbell decides to do the same thing.
Everyone has fun choosing their fishhooks and perfumes and whatnot for their families.
Some of the workers note that they wouldn't even be able to get gifts if not for Campbell; they know Pemberton and Serena wouldn't care about getting gifts for them. Interestingly, though, Pemberton and Serena don't get mad at Campbell for doing this without permission.
Again the workers note that it's not right to mess with the seasons and nature. They don't like that Serena has a trained eagle that gets rid of the snakes. (You'd think they'd be happy not to get bitten, but no dice.)
When the workers notice Joel giving Rachel a toy train for little Jacob, they comment on how he's nicer to her than the baby's own father.
Pemberton and Serena chat about the park negotiations; the other side is getting more confident, which is worrisome.
Serena suggests they stay the course and keep working. She rides her horse out to the camp, which Pemberton isn't sure is the best idea since she's pregnant. Shh… It's a secret.
