Amber and Rob are still sitting in the shelter, watching the peons run around on the beach trying to come up with a plan. Usually, I would take their confidence as a sign that they are headed for a fall, but I think that if it happens, it won't happen in the next two episodes. Also, Rob has been shown as extremely cocky, but also sort of endearing, and Amber hasn't really been shown as cocky at all, so it's possible Mark Burnett isn't trying to set them up as the villains. Rob calls Alicia over and asks what she discussed with Shii Ann earlier. Alicia says that Shii Ann has been talking to Big Tom a lot, and that Alicia doesn't trust anyone right now. Alicia adds that she and Jenna don't get along, and that she feels that she may be the one targeted tonight. Rob interviews that Kathy and Shii Ann are "implanting bad thoughts" into Alicia and Big Tom, and they seem to be buying it. Rob adds that he knows it would only take one of them (Alicia or Big Tom) to convince the other, and that his whole scheme would fall apart. I don't know why Kathy didn't go after Rupert and appeal to his sense of fair play, and argue that Rob screwed Lex over. Then again, Rupert loves him some Jenna, so I don't know if that would work.
Speaking of Jenna and Rupert, they sit together and watch the proceedings. Jenna points out that Kathy, Shii Ann, and Big Tom are spending a lot of time talking. Jenna thinks Big Tom must be giving Kathy an indication that he agrees with her, or they wouldn't have so much to talk about. Jenna says that Alicia is acting weird too, and Jenna is worried that she'll be targeted. Jenna interviews that Alicia and Big Tom are the weak links in the alliance, because no one has tried to draw them into the alliance of Amber, Rob, Rupert, and Jenna. Heh. That's what Jenna thinks. Little does she know that Rob has a side deal with Alicia. Jenna concludes that Alicia and Big Tom might be switching, which is what burned her in the first game, so she might be burned again.
Tribal Council. Once everyone is seated, Probst announces Lex, the first member of the jury. Oh, God. Lex gave himself a Mohawk. What a douche. He should go marry Frankie from The Real World San Diego and have little alterna-babies. Lex just sits there all smug and pissed-off. Jeff points out to Kathy that this has been an odd season, because it has been really catty, but then there have also been strong friendships and bonds formed. Kathy says that she's been having a hard time figuring out when to play the game and when to back off. I'll give her a hint: you start playing the game the moment you arrive, and you don't back off until you're voted off or you win the million. Jeff asks Big Tom if he'll have a hard time voting off friends. Big Tom says, "Numa wumma spangle." Oh, come on. It was a dumb question. Do you really care about the answer? Fine. Tom wants to win with class. Jeff asks Rob how to win the game with class. Rob says that this game is a little different, because real friendships were formed before the game even started, back in the States. Lex is all smirky. Fuck off, Lex. And fuck off, Lex's smirk. And fuck off, Lex's stupid Mohawk. Rob says that he's struggled with those issues, and asks Jeff to define "class."
