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.
And with that, it's time for tribal council. Eliza is brought in, looking clean and fed and relishing her sort-of powerful position. Everyone smiles at her to suck up. Probst starts off by asking Cirie about her time on Exile Island. She says she didn't have time to look for the hidden idol while she was there since it rained, and Ozzy has it anyway so why bother? Eliza grins and nods at this, and I'm sure it feels a little bit good to know that her ouster caused everyone else to know that Ozzy has the real idol. Which is also why creating a fake idol may not have been the awesome idea Ozzy thought it was. When asked, Parvati says that yes, everyone is taking it as fact that Ozzy has the idol. Probst asks Ozzy if that makes him nervous. I'm going to give Probst the benefit of the doubt here and say that he knew Ozzy didn't bring the idol to tribal council with him and therefore it was okay to ask some of these rather leading questions since he knew they wouldn't have any impact on whether or not Ozzy played the idol. Ozzy says having the idol does put a target on his back. A really small target apparently, since he didn't bother taking the idol to tribal council with him. Probst turns to Jason and says that what he did at the immunity challenge today was extremely risky. Shockingly, Jason actually seems to have put some thought into that decision and says that he figured his odds of winning every immunity challenge were really slim, and this was a chance to try something else. And while I did say what he did was incredibly stupid at the time, it seems that he might have been right after all. Not that he had anything to do with it other than giving up the immunity -- this is all Cirie and possibly Parvati's doing, not his -- but he was hoping to shake things up and he definitely did. Jason says he hopes everyone will stick to his word as Ozzy outright laughs at him.
