Later, around the fire with only Chris, Eliza says that Twila is "a dumb bitch." Which, if it doesn't go well for her, will sort of make her a dumb bitch's bitch, so I'm not sure why she went in that direction. She laments to Chris that she can't stand the idea of seeing either Scout or Twila in the final two. Eliza questions Chris about whether he's going to stick with an alliance to her, and he assures her that what he did with Julie was for the benefit of their alliance. Would he lie to her? You know...again? He also reminds Eliza that Julie wasn't exactly concerned about Eliza when it was Julie's neck at stake. "She voted for you," Chris says. "Remember?" Well -- well -- Eliza's not concerned about Julie right now, but nice doubletalk, there, My Pretty Ponytail. Eliza hesitates again. "Ye of little faith," Chris says with some disappointment. "Why don't you just put a little bit of faith in the person you aligned with?" Eliza starts to ask what they're going to do about F4, and whether he thinks they can get Twila or Scout to turn on the other, which is obviously the problem with this plan and obviously the reason it probably won't go the way Chris is telling her it will, and Chris tells Eliza that now isn't the time to discuss it. And because Eliza is not as smart as she sometimes seems any more than she is as dumb as she sometimes seems, she lets it go at that. Chris interviews that he hasn't thought much of the women in the tribe since he wound up the only guy with six of them. He adds that he finds that the fact that Eliza and Twila can't stand each other makes life interesting. Because Chris loves the chick fighting. And...volcano!
It rolls over to the next morning, and Chris is by the fire, where it is Day 37 at Alinta. Scout combs her hair with some kind of a pick (it's a shame this isn't like The Flintstones, where it would turn out to be a crab or a row of birds tied to a twig). Eliza, still sporting that tiny hickey on her forehead where someone tried to drink her through a straw (which almost appears possible), tells us that while she would have expected herself to be around at the end, it wouldn't have been with these people. She then claims that it's fairly clear, with four people left, who will stick together and who will vote against whom. Presumably, Eliza is now confident that Chris will happily march into a tie that will expose him to the risk of booting rather than break his alliance to Eliza. Why would he do this? I'm just not sure. She acknowledges that Scout and Twila have wanted to get rid of her for a long time, so she's sure they'll enjoy that part. She says that she badly wants to win immunity, and that if she doesn't, she certainly hopes Chris will. I'm not sure what difference that makes, really. Who cares if Scout or Twila wins immunity? You'd just vote out the other one under Eliza's plan, wouldn't you? And as a matter of fact, it seems to me that if Eliza believes Twila and Scout won't turn on each other, she would actually rather Chris not win immunity if she doesn't, because her one opportunity to avoid an otherwise inevitable tie would be to convince them to get rid of Chris, no? I suppose it can only be mean that Eliza is hoping Chris will get Scout to turn on Twila or Twila to turn on Scout, and that if he has immunity, both of those options remain open. Or else, Eliza has swallowed too much seawater and gone goofy.
