So it looks like Jason is a goner. But wait! I see a spider knitting a web, and that means scheming is afoot! Sure enough, there's Cirie. She tells us that Ozzy wants to vote Jason out despite the guarantees, which makes this the perfect time to vote Ozzy out instead. He'll never see it coming and therefore won't play his idol. This is a brilliant plan, but can she pull it off? Ami was always thinking of plans like this and they never worked. Cirie goes to Natalie, Alexis, and Parvati and explains her plan. They apparently agree to it, as Cirie then warns them not to tell Amanda, James, or Erik about this for fear of giving the game away. With Jason's vote, they'll have five votes for Ozzy to four votes for Jason, which is all they need. But will Jason go along with it? He might be stupid enough to tell Ozzy about this plan in yet another misguided attempt to make friends. Amanda walks up and everyone immediately stops talking. Suspicious. But Parvati saves it by walking up to Amanda and asking if the plan is to vote out Jason tonight. They all say they're planning to do just that, as they crossed their fingers when making the guarantee, thereby absolving them of all blame and making everything a-okay. Amanda walks away, seemingly placated.
Parvati tells us that she thinks if she went to the final five with Ozzy, she'd lose to him. And she wants to win. Yes, turning against your alliance and making promises you know you'll be forced to break eventually is totally the path to victory. Parvati talks to Ozzy in the cave. He gives her a pat on the back for helping to get Jason out of the game and says "we'd have to be idiots not to vote him out tonight." Parvati plays along and tells us that she also knows that voting for Ozzy will ruin her alliance and probably her friendships with Ozzy, James, and Amanda. "What do I do?" she wonders.
Meanwhile, Alexis and Natalie work on Jason. They tell him that Ozzy is still planning to vote him out, but they have the numbers to get rid of Ozzy. Fortunately, Jason has enough basic reasoning skills to go along with this. Alexis tells us that this plan hinges on Ozzy not being suspicious and using his idol. And despite everyone's attempts to act nonchalant, Ozzy asks James if they should be worried about Parvati, Natalie, and Alexis's seemingly close bond. James admits he's getting a "bad feeling." Ozzy tells us that he realizes that this would be a good opportunity for the contestants to get him to throw down his idol, but he's confident enough in his alliance that he won't do it. He says the "Favorites" know that the way to win is to stick with your alliance at all costs, and that's what's happened so far. For example, back on Malakal, his alliance always voted with each other, and had ample opportunities to do so since they lost every single immunity challenge. Even so, Ozzy says he "may" decide to take the idol to tribal council with him tonight. "MAY?!?!?!" Has he not been taking it there with him every time? WHY NOT? If you have the immunity idol and you aren't taking it with to every single tribal council, you deserve to go home.
