Eliza and Julie are uncomfortable, however, when they see that Chris is out by the water, talking it up with Scout and Twila. And indeed, what he's telling them is that "they" are three, and that Eliza and Julie are only two. Which is hard to argue with, but doesn't at all answer any interesting question, if you think about it, because the issue isn't whether three can vote out two; it's where Chris falls in that split. Chris assures Scout and Twila that he credits them for the fact that he's still in the game, so he's not deviating from the plan. "Don't even doubt it," he says. "I would tell you, you got it? We're going all the way," he assures them. But what does he say in the interview? That he's "still weighing [his] options." In fact, he claims to be going back and forth about what would be the best thing to do.
Chris then takes an interesting step, which is to chat with Eliza, as he lies in the hammock and she stands beside him, about how it will affect their pact if he decides to vote off Julie because he thinks it's what's best for both of them, meaning for himself and Eliza. One would think that, if that were the reasoning, Eliza could at least ask to be told ahead of time, making this conversation largely unnecessary. Eliza tells Chris no, his voting for Julie wouldn't make Eliza turn on him or anything. Eliza also reminds Chris, though, that Scout and Twila will not go against each other. Thus, she says, whichever of Chris and Eliza doesn't win immunity next is going up against Scout or Twila "in a challenge at tribal council." Wait, wait -- what? New rule? Because it sounds like Eliza and Chris have information that ties in F4 will not be broken by purple rocks this time, but with a tribal council challenge, right? That's the only way that what she just said makes sense. She's saying that they'll never break a tie in their own favor, and that they'd have to go up in a challenge, whereas Julie would probably vote with Chris and Eliza against Scout. Which...again, given Scout's weaknesses, would she? Interesting to wonder.
And as Eliza presents this scenario to Chris, the camera guy slides over to show us that...Twila is listening. Fairly openly, too -- it's not like she's hiding in the bushes; she's just standing behind Eliza, and because Chris, quite carelessly, is conducting this chat from the hammock facing the same way as Eliza, they don't see her. And Twila is smiling a skeptical, somewhat disappointed smile. Finally, Eliza turns around and sees Twila standing there. A long and extremely awkward silence follows. "What's up?" Eliza asks, trying to appear relaxed. Twila's like, "Don't know, you tell me." Heh. Chris and Eliza sit there. Now that's uncomfortable for you. Twila finally prods, "What's up, Eliza?" Eliza does the only thing she can, which is say that she feels like Twila is "fucking with [her]." Which kind of doesn't make any sense, but Eliza's so busted, what can she do? It's the "I wasn't eating the M&Ms, I was just keeping them warm in my mouth" defense. Twila tells Eliza that she has immunity, and Eliza counters that she knows she does, but tomorrow, she won't: "Then who's gone, T? I think you're a liar, T." Twila would like to raise the matter of who else hasn't been too honest lately. Twila wants to know whether Twila is in the F4 alliance she's supposed to be in or not. Eliza insists that she hasn't told a lie yet. Twila pushes, saying basically that she knows perfectly well that Eliza has been scheming with Julie and trying to pull in Chris. "Hey, I'm going to listen to [Julie]," Eliza says. "And you're not saying, 'Okay, we would like to do this and this and get Twila and Scout out of here' or anything?" "I'm listening," Eliza answers unconvincingly. Eliza insists that Twila has been "trying to plot against [Eliza] since day one." Which...really doesn't matter now, kids. See, this is the point where we're long past loyalty, and it's really just endgame, and everybody knows it. Twila claims that Eliza has been on edge for three days, making everybody crazy, and now Eliza should relax, because she has immunity already.
