Ami is off working on Eliza from a guilt perspective as we speak, telling her, "I want you to know that I feel like I've stood up for you five million times [which, as stated previously, is Ami-speak for "once, for my own benefit"], and then, if you kind of, like, throw me off to the side at the very end of the game, that would hurt my feelings." So apparently, Eliza would have to let Ami win in order to avoid hurting her feelings, because Eliza isn't allowed to "throw [Ami] off to the side," and that's what it is if you take part in somebody else's not-winning. I truly do wish Eliza had just said, "Oh, don't worry. I'm voting you out, but I'm not throwing you off to the side personally -- I mean, hey, you weren't throwing me off to the side when you voted me off last week, right?" But of course, she doesn't say that. Ami tells Eliza, in that "I'll just sit here in the corner like a dog" way, that if Eliza just "doesn't give a shit now, then that's how the game goes." It's hard even to itemize the number of stupid things about that speech. But it pales in comparison to this one, given in an interview: "I really thought that I could go through this game and play, like, a fair game all the way through and not have to play dirty. And it just didn't work out. So I'm really vulnerable right now, and Eliza would be the only hope." Oh, Ami's integrity. How nice and bendy you are.
Twila and Chris take a walk, and she asks him whether he thinks Ami and Julie will be able to convince Eliza that she's better off going with them. Chris says there's no way, because Eliza knows that would result in a tie. "Eliza's not going to risk no tie," Chris says. He then explains that, as the tiebreaker has been explained to him, if there's a tie, they'd vote again. And then if the tie isn't broken, the two people with votes are immune, and everybody else has to draw rocks. In other words, there is an enormous incentive to avoid, and to break if necessary, any tie votes that come up. (I doubt they would have shown Chris giving that explanation if it wasn't accurate, so I suspect this explanation has been given to them.) "So Eliza could mess things up real bad," he says finally.
