Erinn interviews that it would be "noble" and "honorable" for J.T. to take Stephen to the end, but he has a much better shot of winning the money against her. She says voting Stephen out tonight is "the only thing that makes sense." Doing things that make sense is not common on this show and especially not this season, so, buh-bye, Erinn! She walks off and Stephen has his turn to talk to J.T. He asks if Erinn's "pressuring" J.T. to pick her tonight. "She pleaded her case," J.T. says; "she has a very good one." And here's where Stephen's game totally falls apart. J.T. says that Erinn told him about how she and Stephen agreed to take each other to the end if J.T. lost immunity. Stephen doesn't say anything at first, then tells J.T. it isn't true while not looking J.T. in the eyes and touching his face. He couldn't be more obviously lying if he was telling J.T. that he was once captured by a tribe of short Amazon Indian cannibals. Stephen says if J.T. has doubts, that's okay. J.T. says going against Erinn means he's guaranteed to win the million, so, yeah, he has doubts. Stephen says if he picks him, he'll still win the million "and you'll do the right thing." Ew. I don't like it when people talk about "the right thing" in this game, especially if those people were just talking about not doing "the right thing" before the immunity challenge took that choice away. But maybe Stephen is just trying to say whatever he thinks will appeal to the sense of honesty and truthiness everyone seems to think J.T. possesses no matter how many times he shows them he's willing to lie to win.
