Cirie gets Erik alone and laughingly demands that he promise to take her on the next reward challenge he wins. Erik says that he was hoping to bring two people with him on the reward, and then he could take Natalie as well. Now she's mad at him. Cirie says Natalie seems to think that Erik wouldn't take Amanda with him on the reward if he was planning on voting her out. Erik says no matter what he does now, it'll either piss off Amanda or Natalie, so what can he do? How about not promise them the same thing? Or maybe LOOK AROUND BEFORE YOU SPEAK, as the camera suddenly spins to show us Natalie approaching the shelter from behind Erik's back, putting her in the perfect position to hear everything Erik says about how he thinks he, Parvati, and Cirie need to decide who is a bigger jury threat between Natalie and Amanda and vote her off ASAP. In fact, maybe Erik, Parvati, and Cirie should make a Final Three alliance. You'd think someone would have picked up on the fact that the camera that was shooting him and his conversation suddenly whirled around excitedly to shoot something else, and maybe figure out what that was before continuing. I mean, Natalie is STANDING RIGHT THERE! Like, three feet away! Of course, she's pissed, and tells us that Erik is a moron and she pretty much stood in front of him and listened to him say that she and Amanda needed to go. "I could've literally bitch-slapped him!" Natalie says; "smacked him like his mother." Ah, yes, another nonsensical threat of violence from Natalie. At least this time I can understand her rage.
After the break, Erik takes a nap while Natalie sits down with Cirie and Amanda and says she just heard Erik and Cirie's entire conversation. Cirie tells Amanda that Erik wants to ally with her and Parvati and vote out Natalie and Amanda. Amanda says she's not surprised by this at all, and that Erik is telling everyone the same thing; that he wants to ally with her for the Final Three. Well, he's not telling Natalie that anymore, I don't think. Amanda says that what Erik doesn't seem to realize is that there are only five people left in the game, and four of them are women. And women talk, and lies are uncovered. And you'd think Erik would have learned this lesson after watching Ami get voted out for telling two alliances the same thing, especially since he was the one who told everyone everything she did! Erik walks nearby and spots them all talking. "Idiot," Natalie says.
