Rob interviews that, "at this point, there's no guarantee that Tom's going to stay loyal." He says that because he doesn't trust anyone, his next move was to start a fight between Big Tom and Rupert to keep them from ganging up on him. Rob neatly accomplishes this by sitting down with Big Tom and reporting that Rupert keeps saying that Big Tom is trying to start an uprising against Rob. Okay, this was brilliant for two reasons. First, as he stated, it starts trouble between Big Tom and Rupert. But second, Tom's reaction is going to give Rob some pretty good clues as to whether the notion that Big Tom is plotting against him is true, but allows Rob to find that out without directly accusing Big Tom of disloyalty himself. Really, really a smart bit of play. Anyway, Big Tom insists that he has no intention of changing alliances, although, of course, the first time, Rob doesn't understand him. Snerk. Rob asks Tom why Rupert would say that if it weren't true, and Big Tom says he's not sure -- he finds Rupert to be generally trustworthy, but that if he told Rob that Big Tom was plotting, it's not the case. Big Tom interviews that while he told Rob from the start that he would stay loyal, he's not enjoying the "tattletale" game going on right now. Back in their talk, Rob tells Big Tom, "I'd want to confront him. Or do you want him to just chump you like that?" Oy, that is such a guy thing. That's one of the things I notice about my guy friends -- they always want you to get revenge, and they always think the "don't let him [or, of course, her] chump you like that" is a great way to make you do it. "Sooner than later," Rob interviews happily, "it was like two cats in a bag goin' at it." And by "goin' at it," he means fighting. I dearly hope.
