At any rate, Scout tries to tell Ami to ease up on Twila, but Ami continues to snort that Twila swore on her son, and it's "the truth of [Ami's] life" that she's glad she didn't blah blah blah. Scout gently asks Ami not to "put Twila down," and if you didn't know Ami was coming back with "Twila put herself down!," you haven't been paying attention. Ami -- infuriated, impotent, and humiliated by this entire development because she had no idea it was coming -- continues to talk with disgust about Twila's hideous betrayal of...whatever she's supposed to have betrayed. In an interview, Ami keeps up with this line of discussion -- how she's "disgusted" by Twila, blah dee blah. She has lost all possible respect for Twila, could never respect Twila again...it's a little bit funny, really, watching Ami try to come up with additional superlatives to describe her sense of moral outrage, particularly since her first word on the subject was "yucky."
Having been shat upon for this by Ami a few times, Twila says she'll respond if Ami wants. "Oh, I'm listening, BIG EARS, what?" Ami snorts with a smug grin, so bored by having to talk to dumb old Twila who is so beneath her. Taking note of Ami's attitude, Twila says, "Well, that's the thing, right there. You and Leann and Julie thought that you all were so freaking high and mighty." Ami snorts in disbelief, but allows, "I totally got a little cocky," and Twila says, "You're dang right." Ami goes on to say that she was cocky because she "knew [she] had people [she] could trust." In other words, she was only cocky because she loves everyone so much and believed they were as good and trustworthy as she was. I totally believe her. How about you?
Twila lies down later, staring straight up toward the camera. "We've overthrown the queen and the little princess. People like that just piss me off, because they think they're so much freakin' better than everybody else," she says. And like I said, I'm convinced that this goes all the way back to the patronizing way Ami treated Twila from the very beginning. "We've got the power," Twila says with a little smile, raising her fists to enjoy the moment. "Chris, I, Scout, Li -- we have the power now." She pauses. "I have a great mind sometimes, I love it," she says, and laughs. And while it's more than a little off-putting to see anyone engage in quite this much self-congratulation, Twila is the only damn person in the entire tribe to get a clue and make a move since about Week 2, so relatively speaking, she is coming off as rather brilliant.
