Jerri wanders over to Li'l Russell, Danielle, and Parvati. Uh oh. They complain about lack of sleep for a while, then Li'l Russell asks if Rob has started "ranting and raving" yet because he needs to think that something he did (sort of ... Tyson's ouster was more about Tyson doing something stupid than Li'l Russell doing something smart) had some sort of impact on Rob. No doubt he's disappointed when Jerri says Rob isn't doing any ranting or raving, as everyone is either asleep or depressed. Li'l Russell points out that he is not depressed, and then the persuasion game begins, with Danielle extolling the virtues of a "tight alliance with four people -- five people," which, by the way, Jerri already has. Danielle continues that the key is for everyone in the alliance to stick together. Wait, what? I think Danielle is accidentally making an argument for why Jerri shouldn't join their alliance. Li'l Russell interviews that Jerri probably has a lot of respect for him because he supposedly "put [his] butt on the line" for his ally. He then decides that Jerri and Parvati have been brought together despite their mutual hatred because of him, because he's just that amazing. Dude, it's just Jerri and Parvati. Come to me when you bring together Palestine and Israel. Oh, but then Jerri says that she's not sure if she's comfortable joining forces with Parvati, saying she's nervous about her and always has been. Parvati says there's nothing she can do or say to convince Jerri that she won't team up with the Heroes come the merge. Jerri decides that her difficulty trusting Parvati goes deeper, and starts wondering if she has a fear of commitment that's caused her to be single for the last three years. Yes, that could be it. Or maybe you're really unpleasant in real life and super-high-maintenance? Because that's another reason why people are single. Myself included! Parvati interviews that Jerri is even more "non-committal" than she is, summing Jerri's issues as "people have hurt my feelings in the past and I've just not gotten over that. For thirty-eight years." Ouch, not only did Parvati laugh at Jerri's trust issues, but she also got a dig in about Jerri's age. She calls Jerri "crazypants" and says right now, each alliance has three members and Jerri and Douche are the swing votes. And when Douche's whims are controlling your game, that is a very bad thing. Let's not forget: he thinks native Amazon Indians want to eat his asshole. Parvati promises Jerri the Final Four. Jerri thinks about it, but doesn't make a decision. That fact that she's even considering it, though, tells Parvati that Jerri is more likely to cross over to her side. Well, that and the fact that Parvati has decided that Jerri is jealous of what Li'l Russell "did" for her at Tribal Council and wants a man to do that for her, too. So Jerri's reason for wanting to switch to the other alliance is because she hopes that a man will rescue her? Really, Parvati? Don't you think better of our gender than that?
