Stephen and J.T. talk. Stephen has told J.T. about the Exile alliance, and says he's willing to go with Douche, Tyson, and Debbie now if J.T. promises to turn on the other three when the time comes. He can turn on them all he wants, but it won't change the fact that there are three of them and only two of J.T. and Stephen. Tyson walks up and talks to them about beans for dinner before the whispers start. They've got five people in their alliance, so they need one more to assure they've got the majority. Tyson thinks he'll be able to convince Erinn to vote with them. He walks off, and Stephen just looks at Tyson and says "what a mess."
Stephen and J.T. come back, and Brendan says something about how they're all done with their "awkward conversations," in that smug way that says Brendan absolutely believes that there's no way someone from Jalapeño isn't going home tonight. J.T. proposes a fishing expedition before Tribal and heads out to do that. Brendan suddenly interviews that he's aware that he could be in trouble with his old tribe if they sense that something is going on with Taj, Stephen, him and Sierra, but since there is nothing going on between them since he's too stupid to even give Taj a wink that she's safe, that's probably not a problem. Even so, Brendan says he has the immunity idol and he'll play it tonight if he thinks he has to. Except that's what they all say, and then no one ever actually plays it before he's voted out.
Sierra and Brendan eat while Taj and Stephen sit in the shelter. Once again, they have every opportunity to talk about the alliance, and once again, they don't. Instead, Stephen asks Taj if she'd be willing to vote Brendan out tonight. Without giving anything away, he says he thinks he can convince some members of Tempura to vote for Brendan, noting that J.T. and Douche have become very close lately. Taj says if Stephen can pull it off, she'll vote however he wants her to. She's given Brendan and Sierra two days to talk to her about the alliance and they haven't said a thing, so she doesn't feel very secure in their alliance anymore at all. She'd rather see Brendan go than someone from Jalapeño. With that, Tyson pokes his head in the shelter and comments on how white Taj's teeth are. It turns out that Tyson and Taj both bleach their teeth. EXCITEMENT!
