Probst asks Sherri how it feels to be sitting there and not even part of the conversation. In other words, Sherri, how does it feel to be useless? Sherri says that she's made alliances and made moves and she's still in the game, which is worth something. Cochran agrees that Sherri's probably done more than most people realize. The jury members are kind of like, "Um."
Eddie assures Cochran that his best chance is going with him and Sherri, and Sherri says she just wants to be in the finals. Probst asks Dawn if she' scared and Dawn says she's always scared. No duh.
They vote. Everyone votes for Eddie except for Eddie, obviously, who votes for Dawn. Dawn gives him a huge hug and says she's going to miss him. For one day? And he'll be on the jury. She's just so annoying with this over-the-top bullshit. Once Eddie's gone, Probst reminds them all that the power now shifts to the jury, and they have one more night to spend at camp before facing the jury and trying to convince them to vote for her. In Eddie's exit interview, he says that he thinks he would have won if he'd made it to the finals. I don't think so. Reynold would have voted for him, but I think the rest of the people on the jury respect strategy and gameplay, and Cochran has that all over Eddie.
The next day, Cochran explains to Sherri what a pawn is. She is just learning this? Anyway, she explains to us how she's so happy to make it to the finals, and she really thinks that she earned it. She does? Does she understand the concept of the goat at all? Has she watched this show before? She's kind of like Phillip - the goat who thinks she's earned the finals.
Dawn, meanwhile, is a semi-goat herself. Dawn explains that she's been playing this game for her family, which is why it didn't bother her to sever ties and betray friends - because ultimately her only alliance was with her family. Whatever you have to tell yourself to sleep at night. I think she should just own it. At least she acknowledges that she made the decisions to get her where she is, but she still has to make up this little justification in her mind for those decisions. Just say, "I want to win, and I was willing to do whatever it took to get here. And you might hate me for it, and you might be bitter, but what I did worked, because here I am in the finals."
Cochran sits in the woods and thinks about facing the jury. He interviews that law school hasn't prepared him for this, and he feels like he's played a great game, but the doubt seeps in and he feels like a nerdy loser who hasn't done anything.
