Off in the woods, J-R assures Todd that everything is going to be great, but adds that he'd like to see them get rid of Peih-Gee instead of Jaime, because Jaime's shady nature is well known, and J-R claims that he doesn't want to feel tempted to like Peih-Gee. Okay, now that's the weakest argument I've ever heard. I admit that's a very hard record to hold onto for very long. J-R also openly threatens Todd, saying that if anything goes wrong, J-R will blame Todd and will keep him from getting any votes. By using...all the influence J-R has over potential jury members? I don't think so, big guy. Maybe he's going to lie on top of them until they surrender. Todd interviews that he went along with this, including with J-R's insistence that the F3 is J-R, Todd, and Amanda -- which is contrary to his deal with James, which was that the F3 was Todd, Amanda, James, Denise, and Courtney -- because if he hadn't, J-R would have turned on him. Multiple sub-alliances can be a very powerful tool (see: Rob Mariano), but that they can also bite your nose in the butt...or something. You have to be careful, is my point. Of your nose. And your butt.
James throws some still-alive crabs into the wok to fry (I am currently racked with guilt over the mice I've been catching in my apartment, which is probably why I feel so bad for the crabs), as Jaime and Peih-Gee talk elsewhere about whether James will vote with them. Again, there's clearly more to this than meets the eye, because they wouldn't be talking like this unless, at some point, they'd made overtures to James that were accepted. But again, "Jaime Is Stupid" is the theme, and basically everything that makes anything she does make any sense has been judiciously snipped from the episode. Peih-Gee tells Jaime that she thinks Jaime or Erik might be the target, since they appear to be operating as a couple. They agree that they're going to vote for Jean-Robert. They know that Courtney and Sherea both voted for J-R at the last tribal council, so they're hopeful that maybe there's some hostility accumulated towards him. Peih-Gee also notes that she thinks there's some flirting between Frosti and Courtney, and that worries her also, presumably because it might make Frosti stick with Fei Long -- not that he's not going to anyway. I think Frosti is taking the free cuddling that comes with being on Courtney's side, not paying for the cuddling with allegiance, if you get my meaning.
In some discussion with Frosti taking place at a different time than this -- note that Jaime looks just like she did in the immediately post-merge interview in which she thought she had the idol, and how her hair keeps changing -- Jaime tells Frosti that she and Erik found a hidden immunity idol, which they figure James dropped when he was "spooked" by their return. Which, if you think about it, is kind of what happened, although he stupidly dropped the fake one (thus ultimately giving away the idols he had) rather than a real one. Frosti interviews that he's seen the real idol, and that it sounds to him like she might have one, but that she might not. He describes "the worst that would happen" being that J-R would be booted instead of Jaime, so that's sort of that, with regard to what side Frosti's on. Foolishly, Frosti goes on to say that he's a "swing vote" between the two alliances, both of which think he's with them, so he figures that's great for him. Yeah...people always do. And they're always wrong. It's actually a really bad position to be in, and frankly, I can't think of a "swing vote" of this kind who has ever, ever won, or even really come close. You tend to be picked off well before the end, since you're usually perceived as the least integral and predictable of whatever group you wind up with, and if you do get to the end, then everybody feels like you betrayed them.
