Back at the camp, Tracy and Kathy talk about Chet. They love him, but he needs to suck it up, apparently. Chet enters the shelter and says that his mind is in the game, but that his body has given up. Aww...suck it up anyway, Chet. Tracy then tells us that she knows both Kathy and Chet are on the chopping block, and since they're both in an alliance with her, that means she'll be at risk soon, too. So she has to make sure neither of them goes tonight. "I'm gonna go down with a fight," she tells us. "Why not?" Well, it's about time someone fought for something.
Tracy and Chet take Joel aside. Tracy asks him whom he's voting for, and he says it'll be either Chet or Kathy. Tracy suggests Mikey. "It can't happen right now," says Joel. He thinks they need Mikey's strength. "Chet is weak, run-down," says Joel. It appears as though Chet is sitting right there when Joel says this, but I think that's just editing trickery. Tracy appeals to Joel's alpha maleness, telling him that Mikey seems to be the one calling the shots here -- and Joel is letting him. "JOEL SMASH!" says Joel, as he turns green and becomes enraged and splits all the seams of his clothes. Tracy keeps pushing, saying that she's angry with Joel for blindly following Mikey when he has a chance to take control. Chet and Tracy both remind Joel that he was the one who got Mary voted out, so Mikey will be voting Joel out the first chance he gets. Joel should do everything he can to make sure Mikey doesn't get that opportunity. Joel starts feeling uneasy, and asks Tracy whether she heard something. Tracy won't say anything for sure -- just that she's "intuitive." Then she stuns Joel with her math skills and says that she, Kathy, and Chet will vote with Joel. There are nine people in the tribe. So all they need is one more person to vote with them and Mikey is gone. If they can't do that, Tracy and her alliance won't be able to protect Joel and he'll be gone as soon as Mikey can make it happen. Wow, where did Tracy come from? She's kind of amazing. She and Chet walk away, pessimist Chet still thinking he's going home tonight. It looks to me like the times, they are a-changing.
