Elsewhere, "Dreamz" and Cassandra tell Stacy of the possible switch to a Yau Man vote-off, and Stacy basically agrees to do whatever Cassandra wants, which is an interesting switch from the famous "Cassandra isn't important and has no shot" speech. Cassandra pronounces herself potentially "down with" this plan to oust Yau Man. Cassandra interviews that if she votes out Yau Man, Stacy and "Dreamz" will vote that way, too. She says she's pretty undecided about tribal council.
Cassandra now chats with Earl, who's basically like, "Please tell me you're not considering this." She claims that she isn't. She also wonders why "Dreamz" is trying so hard to keep Alex in the game. Earl doesn't think he is -- isn't "Dreamz" getting all the winks? "Dreamz" tells Alex elsewhere about Earl's winking, and how this clearly was Earl's signal that he was not "down with the plan." At the same moment TV-wise, Earl is telling Cassandra that they have a perfectly good plan, and that screwing with it would be a huge mistake. Earl tries not to strong-arm her, telling her that she's going to have to make her own choice, but he's certainly voting for Alex. Cassandra interviews that as a result of Earl and Yau Man's close friendship, they're going to have to sneak up on Earl if they're going to do the Yau Man plan. She acknowledges that her head and her heart are sending her very different messages.
Tribal council. We bring in the jury. Mookie looks really frat-punk. He's one of those guys who wears his propensity for giving noogies on his sleeve. Jeff starts by challenging Alex on his vote against Mookie last week. Alex gives a general "I'm just fighting hard" defense. Jeff asks Yau Man whether he's concerned about "something dramatic" happening as a result of the arrangement of six people plus Alex, making Alex all-important swing-vote guy. Yau Man says that he's decided to trust his alliance, and while he thinks one or two people might be flippable, he thinks that three aren't -- and he sure hopes he's right. Heh. "Dreamz" is rather not-subtle when he's called on, and he just wants everyone to know that it's VERY possible that three people could flip. Jeff asks Alex what he did about his back being to the wall, and Alex is all "that's for me to know and you to find out" about it, and I'm so tired of him.
