Hurtful! is the 23rd episode of Battle for Dream Island. It was released on November 1st, 2011. This is the final episode of BFDI where there are challenges.
Before the intro
The episode begins with all the contestants being metal after eating the Yoylecake from the previous episode. Firey Speaker Box wanted the TLC to be fixed, as the middle section was torn apart by a spaceship in episode 21. Flower was reading a book, annoyed by the noise and she threw a bowling ball at him, but he easily dodged it, and it destroyed her Speaker Box instead.
A message flew from the sky that says an Announcer Recovery Center will be built soon, read by Bubble. It is signed by FlykydFly (and yummysimon4).
The contestants were then used to fix the TLC with their metal. They were melted in a furnace with debating on who to go first (with Ice Cube added for alloy). After being fixed, the TLC had a bulging body, with the word "LOSER" crudely scribbled on it. The Firey Speaker Box just spotted that one contestant in TLC is missing, which is Ice Cube. Leafy apologized to Ice Cube before she was sent to TLC.
Cake at Stake
At Cake at Stake, the original announcer, came back by the "Announcer Recovery Center" from the sky, popping Bubble. The original anouncer came out and thought Replacemnet Box Alpha was an imposter but actually his replacement. A replica of the Firey Speaker said he was his clone, and a few more clones came in, much to the original speaker's discomfort. A green one threw spiky balls uncontrollably, and even a Cheese Orb was in the mix.
The cake became the Cheese Orb when the Announcer cut it into 4 pieces. Leafy felt bad that Announcer kill the Cheese Orb, and Firey said that it was his friend.
Flower and Firey won immunity last episode so they got cake, and Bubble only received 97 votes and was safe, leaving only Spongy and Leafy, but Leafy avoided the axe with 287 votes, while Spongy was eliminated with a new record of 432 votes.

- Leafy finds a maroon ball during the challenge, a running gag originally done during episode 13.
