Cliff says that coming to Tribal Council has given them the chance to see how people are thinking. Tony says that this will let them find out if they're moving forward as a team or moving forward with a different team. Cliff looks a little perplexed and maybe worried?
Everyone votes and LJ does not play his Idol. I guess he liked what he heard. LJ gets three and Cliff gets three. Cliff was not expecting that third vote, and as soon as he hears it, he figures out what's up. Lindsey and Woo don't get it until the final vote is read and Probst tells Cliff he's out of there. And they are STUNNED. Jefra whispers to LJ, "It worked." I think that was a good move for Trish, especially. I think Tony panicked and I'm not sure it was the best move for him, but Trish would have been the first one gone if her alliance had to start cannibalizing itself. I could even see her tribe keeping Jefra and ditching her. The other tribe seems similarly fractured, so it will be interesting to see who's actually left by the time they merge.
