Elsewhere, Alicia and Big Tom talk about the possibility of getting rid of Rupert rather than Shii Ann, presumably because Rupert is part of the sub-alliance that is now showing itself with Rob and Amber. Alicia adds that neither of them -- Big Tom or herself -- will be beating Rob or Amber in a final two situation. They talk some more about their situation, and Big Tom says that he and Alicia have a bond as well: "We may not have slept together, but we've snuggled pretty close." She chuckles. Alicia interviews that she and Big Tom had an agreement to stick with Amber and Rob, and that the four of them would remain as a unit. She explains that this should theoretically be protection enough. But then Big Tom came to her with a concern about going to the end against Amber or Rob, and that's compelling as well. She says that her only real handshake deal is with Rob, and that she doesn't trust him anyway. Smart girl.
Rob and Big Tom take a walk, as Rob explains that they need to figure out what they're going to do if Shii Ann wins immunity. Big Tom says that this would obviously create a much greater hazard for him than for Rob. Rob isn't so sure -- he thinks he needs the immunities in order to stay in the game as well. Rob interviews that he isn't yet sure who will go if Shii Ann wins immunity. Tom tries to encourage Rob to think about Rupert, who is more likely to beat Rob in future immunity challenges than Shii Ann. Big Tom actually makes a fairly compelling argument that whether Shii Ann wins or not, the next move should be taking out Rupert, for a variety of endgame-related reasons. Also reasons related to making the recapper laugh hysterically, but I know those aren't their reasons.
Alicia sits at camp eating rice. Shii Ann tells her that they should talk, because she has "some news." Alicia says she doesn't want to hear it: "Honestly? There's a plan, Shii Ann, and it's too late for anything to change." Shii Ann says that's fine. Couple of brain surgeons, those two.
