As soon as Li'l Russell is done with his interview, he heads for Dave Ball and tells him that he can save him from going home tonight if Dave Ball and Galu vote for John. Dave Ball is fine with that, especially since now they can get back at John for flipping on Laura and basically fucking Galu over. "It will be you if it's not John. I want you to stay in the game," Li'l Russell says. "All right. All right, brother. All right," Dave Ball says. Master strategist.
Li'l Russell heads for Mick and asks him who he would get rid of if he could get rid of one person. "John," Mick says. Of course, Li'l Russell agrees. He tells Mick about the deal he made with Dave Ball and Galu to vote for John, and thinks they're too scared not to do it. Mick is hesitant, though, saying he doesn't trust Galu to keep their word. I don't think they're smart enough to break it, honestly. And it doesn't really matter if they do, since they only have three votes to Foa Foa's four. So unless they can convince Shambo and John to vote with them (which they can't in the case of Shambo and shouldn't try in the case of Traitor John), their only chance probably is to do what Li'l Russell says and hope he's telling the truth. Conversely, they could try to convince Mick, Jaison, and/or Natalie to switch to their alliance, but I don't think anyone on Galu is smart enough to do that or anyone from Foa Foa is dumb enough (or smart enough, depending on how you look at it) to switch anyway.
