After the commercial, Erik is off cutting a coconut, giving Ami a chance to talk to the girls. She graciously says she's not mad at Erik for telling the truth. How big of her! She says she doesn't think she's done anything to hurt Cirie or Amanda. Cirie and Amanda just stay on their log, eating coconut before they render their final verdict. They are absolutely loving this. Ami tells them to remember that Erik is saying anything and everything to stay in the game. Cirie folds her buff and tells us that no matter who she decides to keep, it'll be risky. Erik could go back with the "Fans" after the merge and possibly get Eliza to vote with them. Ami could do the same thing.
Cirie and Amanda have decided to stand up, and Ami tells them she always felt like she was on the outs with them and did whatever she had to do to feel like she was in with someone. Amanda says they never asked her to join because they knew she had her alliance with Eliza. There's a pause as Ami thinks about this very valid point. She can't come up with an excuse, so she just jumps to the next point, that after the switch no one came to her and invited her to be a part of their alliance. And that's all she wanted. So Amanda gives her that, and Ami thanks her pathetically. Amanda tells us that they don't know Erik, but they do know Ami. And they'd rather go with the devil they know than the one they don't. Except the devil they know may very well be the actual Devil. Ami, Cirie, and Amanda seal their alliance with a group hug that Cirie doesn't appear to want to be any part of. I'm wondering why Cirie isn't taking advantage of this to get Erik and Ami to vote with her and take out Amanda. Surely she knows she's at the bottom of the alliance as soon as Ami's gone?
And now let's welcome back the Evil Ami we all know and love. I was wondering what happened to her this time around, but I see she was just lying in wait. Waving the machete around, Ami tells Erik she owes him a thank you because she just had a really good talk with Cirie and Amanda. "That's what I wanted, yeah," Erik says. "That's not what you wanted," Ami says with an evil laugh, pointing the machete at Erik. Erik. Run. RUN!!!! You're gonna DIIIIIEEE!!!! Ami gives me the shivers. After transcribing her entire season, she was the one contestant I just really didn't want to meet. Not at the reunion, and certainly not in a dark alley. Not ever. Erik tries to get away, but Ami wants to make absolutely sure he knows the price of going up against her, so she spells it out. She says she had a talk with the girls and now she feels a lot closer to them and like she's actually part of their alliance. "Thank you. Thank you," Ami says. Okay, so I guess there's a slim chance that Ami was sincerely grateful to Erik and that's what all that was about. But there's a much, much greater chance that she's just sticking it to him and getting him back for trying to screw her over by rubbing this in. With a machete. "No problem," Erik says, sounding terrified of the evil he sees behind Ami's eyes.
