As the S4 scurry around camp, Matt explains that he doesn't know how Jenna feels about the voting order, or how things will unfold. He anticipates "a lot of negotiations" this evening. The first of said negotiations begins as Butch approaches Jenna, who openly says she doesn't know what to do. She asks what he's thinking, and he "I guess"es his way through responding that he'd like to be in the final three. Jenna hears him out as he stutters along, positing that the others are talking about the decision right now, and they'll probably pick him. Except he says it like this: "But I could tell ya. I'd say they're probably gon' talk up. Say, well, who we gonna git? And they'll probably say Butch." I just translated it for you.
We join Matt and Rob's conversation as they're pretty much saying exactly that. Matthew urges Rob to let him know if Jenna approaches him about voting against him, and Rob matter-of-factly responds that if Jenna is going to vote for Matt, then they'll just vote for Butch, who will vote for Rob, in which case Butch will still go. Rob interviews that he and Matt talked through all the scenarios, and agreed that they had to vote for Butch. Actually, Rob proposed they had to vote for Butch, and Matthew agreed because that's the way their relationship works. "Owner and pet," by the way, cleaned up on last week's recap poll. Rob and Matt talk some more about how Butch is going no matter what, and that the two of them will make the final three -- along with Jenna. This conversation would be much more interesting if it didn't turn out to be exactly what happens.
We return to Jenna, who asks which of the other two guys Butch would most like to see voted off, but he'd rather she answer that question first, since he's the one asking for help. She'd like to see Rob go, because he screwed her, and he's a bad screw. Well, I added that last part, but I don't imagine his neurosis works much in his favor in the bedroom. Jenna points out that she and Butch have never wronged each other, and that's all they have to go on at this point in the game. Butch earnestly says, "If you would stand by that, I would really appreciate it." She says she does stand by it, before completely qualifying the statement by adding "right now." Butch stutters his appreciation some more and then adds, "Here I am? Asking you? And I'm a fifty-one-year-old guy and a twenty-one-year-old girl." I'm impressed -- it's hard to be both at once. They enthuse over being a team of the youngest and the oldest, and Butch is excited. Jenna assures him that he has no reason to feel nervous. Unless he's nervous that she might vote him out, that is, which is her exact intention.
