Erik walks past the jury with his finger crossed. They don't even want to look at him. They do look at the four women, who, now that Erik's not looking, are openly rejoicing, with Parvati kissing Natalie on the head. James does a baseball umpire "you're out!" signal. How could everyone know so well what is about to happen except for the one person it matters the most to? Erik votes for Parvati, employing what I believe is the first-ever sideways (vertical) vote. He says he's taking a risk and he hopes people will keep their word. Why would they, Erik? After all, you didn't. WORDS MEAN NOTHING.
But maybe I'm wrong. Maybe Natalie, Cirie, and Erik have something amazing cooked up that we don't know about and they're actually going to vote for Parvati. Oh, wait -- no way. For Natalie votes next, and it's for Erik: "I don't even know what to say ... but thank you?" she says.
