Caryn walks in on Ian and Katie's conversation, and then we switch to an Ian-terview in which he says that both Caryn and Steph need to be voted out in order for his plans to work, but that he's not sure whether to switch away from those two options and get rid of Tom while the getting-rid-of is good. Caryn tells the camera, when Ian and Katie have gone, that she may have shot herself in the foot by tattling on Katie to Tom, and that she may go next herself. Certainly is a big week for paranoia.
Gregg, on the other hand, has not changed his thinking, which is what makes him a lovely simpleton. He tells us that he still thinks Steph needs to be the one to leave. "She brings a complexity to the game right now," he says. He insists that getting rid of Steph will bring them "back to what the plan is." Because Steph is not in the plan. Steph is plan-less! The plan is Steph-less! Yeah, I get it, Muscles Malone. Let's move along. Steph, on the other hand, tells us that she's survived a lot of problems, and that she hopes the tribe will realize that, for its own good, it needs to get rid of Tom. Which, for once, is actually true, which it almost never is when people claim to be telling other people what's in their best interests. She says that she's done all she can to put the thought in people's heads, so now she can only hope the tribe will go with it.
Tribal council. Jeff opens by bringing in Coby and Janu. He then asks Ian whether there's paranoia, and Ian admits that there is, but that it's "still a pretty solid group." Jeff asks Steph about having escaped last week, and she says that she thought it would be pretty gross, but that the rest of the tribe made her as comfortable as it could, given that...you know, they had all basically admitted to wanting her out as soon as possible. She says she's played as hard as she possibly can, and that "whatever's meant to happen will happen." Jeff asks her about being an outsider, and asks her about the dynamic that will follow when members of this happy group start to be sent to the jury. Steph says it will be difficult, because these people haven't had to "scramble" very much, and now they're about to start having to backstab more.
