Over at Raro, campfire talk turns to a merge. Everyone thinks that this will be "soon," though historically, there's never been a merge when there were still twelve contestants in the game. Rebecca and Parvati feel that even if they go into the merge with the same numbers as Aitu, they should be "all good," though no one elaborates as to why. But "all good" is "all good," so who's worrying? Brad adds that after they do merge, "it's like every man for himself." Even without the music cues and the shots of Adam looking dumber than usual, we can tell that a statement like that isn't going to sit well. The editing makes it look like Brad immediately gets up to go fishing, which is pretty hilarious. "I have no loyalty to any of you bitches, but we'll talk later, 'kay?" Nate and Parvati are all fake astonished that Brad would say something like that. "He's digging a hole," Parvati says, and Nate interviews that he doesn't trust Brad because he's done some "questionable" things. "He's Slim Shady right now." You mean he's become culturally irrelevant and unable to create enough controversy to drive up his album sales? No, I guess not. Parvati and Jenny are aghast that Brad would think that Survivor is an individual game. Aghast! Also, note that Parvati seems to be co-signing a lot of the tribe's sentiment in this segment. A sign that she's more responsible for driving said sentiment than we think? Anyway, they all seem in agreement that after the merge, they won't need Brad, and it's lame that they're all ganging up on Brad yet again for some arbitrary and stupid reason, but there's always an arbitrary and stupid reason to vote you off, so don't give it to them unnecessarily, Brad. It's just a weirdly self-destructive comment to make. You know who could shed some light on that comment for us? Brad. You know who we don't get to hear from at all? Brad. Nate interviews that his plan is to make it seem like he and Brad are tight, before he drops the hammer on him. Oh wait, his exact words were "Yeeeeah, boy, we tight, we tight...sucka." I'm all for making people think you're on their side right up until you vote them off, but Nate's maybe a little too gleeful at the prospect right now.
