James and Parvati (who has a brown ring around her mouth for some reason. Did they get chocolate milk in a reward challenge I didn't see?) complain about the Airai beach. They are always complaining about that beach. It must really suck compared to Malakal, which isn't really fair to the contestants. Even the ocean hates the Airai beach, as James points out they while they used to have calm water at Malakal, Airai has choppy seas too dangerous to boat in. "Popeye wouldn't go in that. You would die! Jacques Costeau would be like, 'damn!'" James cracks me up. "This is where they bring the criminals," James says of the Airai coast. Then James gets down to strategizing, worrying that if Alexis and Natalie get too close to the merge, Eliza and Ami will swoop in and ally with them, and then Parvati, James, Ozzy, and Amanda's alliance will be in trouble. Parvati tells us that they'll have to pull in more people if they want to stay in the game. After a shot of a symbolic spider weaving its web, Parvati goes to Natalie and says that she and James want to ally with Natalie and Alexis. Natalie agrees to this. I can't believe Eliza didn't approach her earlier. Maybe she did and we didn't see it. I hope so, for Eliza's sake. Love you, Eliza! Parvati continues that once the merge happens, the big guys (Ozzy and James are mentioned. Oddly, neither Erik nor Jason are) will get voted out quickly, leaving Parvati, Amanda, Alexis, and Natalie in the Final Four. Parvati tells us she likes James and Ozzy, but knows it'll be impossible to go against them in the end. She'd rather go against Natalie and Alexis. From calling Jason a loser to doing some actual strategizing, Parvati kind of rules this week.
