Chris sits down with Scout and tries to look at her all intense-like, saying that he "need[s] [her] to be honest" about what's going on between her and Twila. "I don't know who I'm pickin'," he says meaningfully. "Did you and Twila have an agreement to go to the final two together?" Scout tells him no. She and Twila had an agreement to go to the final four, and an agreement to get rid of Eliza. And that's the span of the Scout/Twila alliance. Chris tells Scout that Twila told him the same thing -- that she had no deal with Scout -- and he didn't believe her. He then interviews that Scout's honesty surprised him, because Scout had to know that a different answer, even if false, could potentially have improved her odds of going to the end. Which I suppose is true, but...I'm not sure Scout would see any advantage in telling Chris a lie about this at this point, truthfully, even though Chris says that if Scout had told him they had a deal, "Twila would have been packing tonight, for sure." As to Scout, Chris says, "She's honest, and I respect her for that." He's going to grind her up like an allspice berry, but he respects her. He adds that some jurors will go on likeability, and some of them will go on game play, and he's not sure who will do what. I'm not even sure if he thinks he'll get the likeability people or the game play people. I suppose he's safe with the literalists who think Twila agreed to subject her son to human sacrifice, but that's about all I would count on. Chris and Twila share a hug, and in a tiny interview snippet, he says that he might just make his mind up at tribal council. Although...if Scout has now cleared up his one doubt, what's the problem?
But anyway, here we are, at the least interesting F3 tribal council ever. Because really...who cares? Especially about Scout. I mean, who cares? I suppose that's a failure on my part to get into the spirit, but...really. Anyway, the jury comes in. Eliza has had a chance to put some cover-up on that thing on her head, so we have a clear and uninterrupted view of her hairline-to-chin bitchface as she sits down behind Julie. Jeff opens the discussion by confronting Chris about the way he started trying to deal with Twila as soon as Scout was out. They have a sort of a stupid conversation about how Twila's quitting would have been a great deal for Chris. Again, I just hate the feeling that I have that this entire finale is made up of blander versions of things that have gone on in other finales. All of the attempts to make this "interesting," as here, where they're trying to make some kind of an adventurous point that it's easy for Chris to suggest that Twila drop out, and the fact that he wouldn't drop out instead means that they don't really have trust? I mean, we have this argument every season. Enough.
