Li'l Russell tells Jerri they're set to vote out Parvati tonight. Parvati will vote for Jerri, Li'l Russell says. Jerri doesn't seem to like that, but the thought of being in danger flies right out of her head immediately and she prematurely celebrates making it to the Final Three. Parvati approaches with her hands full of coconuts and takes Li'l Russell with her for "a walk." Jerri still doesn't seem to think that's a problem. Li'l Russell tells Parvati he wants to go to the end with Sandra over Jerri. Parvati isn't so sure that's a good idea, pointing out that she'll get votes from Amanda, Candice, and Courtney "at least." Li'l Russell says he wants Jerri on the jury because she'll vote for him. Anyone who thinks that Li'l Russell played a better game than Parvati can watch this clip and see who had a better read on the how the jury would vote. Li'l Russell takes Parvati's desire to get rid of Sandra to mean that she's afraid she can't even win against her. And if Parvati doesn't think she can beat Sandra, Li'l Russell says, then she "surely can't beat" him. He thinks she's just playing for second place. Just like Sandra (and Natalie last season), she's happy to let him think that. He tells Parvati that his "best strategic move" is to keep Sandra and Jerri in the game and vote her out. Parvati disagrees with that immediately, although not so much because it means she gets 4th place, but because she's sure Sandra would beat Li'l Russell and Jerri. Li'l Russell says he could convince the jury to vote for him because the other two finalists didn't do anything in the game, and the jury is sure to reward him for that. Li'l Russell interviews that he had "a hard decision" to make tonight. Okay, WHY is he the only person deciding this vote when there are FOUR people voting? They did the same thing earlier when Colby was voted out. Have Parvati and Jerri even spoken? Has anyone but Li'l Russell spoken to Sandra? What the hell? "I suffered way too much in this game not to win it," he says. Yes, well, I suffered way too much watching him for two seasons to watch him win.
The Final Four arrive at Tribal Council. Probst starts with Jerri, asking her what went down when they got back after the challenge. Jerri says that usually after challenges, she goes off to sit by herself and reflect (nap) about the day's events, but this time she thought it would be best to stick around. Probst asks Sandra the same question. Sandra says she went right up to the one person she knows is not going home tonight and told him why he should keep her and how few votes she'll get from the jury. "One, if that," she says. I think she knows she'll get more, but unlike some people who readily tell anyone who will listen how many votes he thinks he'll get and from who, she keeps that information to herself. She says she knew Li'l Russell was already thinking about keeping her for an easy Final Tribal Council opponent, since he tells her "all the time" how impossible it will be for her to win. Jerri and Parvati crack up. Li'l Russell tries to deny this to the jury, saying "you never know" and Sandra "could easily possibly win." He says tonight's decision is important (duh) and he's going to have to break his alliance with someone. He's voting for whoever is most likely to beat him in the end. We cut to a shot of Colby looking either stern or half-asleep. Why do we even have to acknowledge his existence anymore?
