Fortunately, Edgardo understands the math, and he and Alex talk about how "the girls" are ruining the whole thing, because they're being jerks, and are not listening to anything Alex is saying. This is the most girl-hating season ever, I think. "They're so irrational, dude," he says. As much as I hate to listen to a "the girls are irrational" speech, in this case, it's kind of appropriate. It makes me wonder, though, who Alex thought those women were when he aligned with them, and why he didn't feel people out to see whether they had any head for strategy before choosing them as allies. What about Lisi made her seem like an appealing ally, you know? What about her stupidity and jerkitude isn't obvious? Edgardo suggests in an interview that he and Alex are considering allying with "Dreamz" and Cassandra instead of Stacy and Lisi, if Stacy and Lisi are going to be such jackholes. Alex tells Edgardo, though, that he thinks Boo is also dumb, and goes along with whatever Stacy and Lisi tell him. Edgardo tells us that he and Alex are just trying to get things lined up for later.
Back at the shelter, Alex gives the entire tribe a rousing speech about how they should all stay together, and Stacy's all mean-girl, pretending to go along, acting like there's anyone here who isn't on to her routine at this point. Like, does she think "Dreamz" believes this, coming from her? She's already dug the bitch hole, and she's not getting out that easily. "Dreamz" basically says that as soon as the merge happens, he and Cassandra are switching over to Ravu, despite Stacy's ridiculous, unconvincing performance. He also makes rather unfortunate use of the word "genocide" in reference to knocking out Ravu. That is not a good idea, dude. He says that he "can't wait to the day to put on [his] snakeskin boots and show them...strategy." I don't know how I wound up rooting for "Dreamz," but here we are. I'm kind of hoping the snakeskin boots are steel-toed, because Stacy and Lisi are absolute wretches.
