But as an aside, why is Coby wearing that blue old-lady shawl? If he doesn't give that back soon, Bea Arthur will have to wear her brown bomber jacket to the Tonys.
Next, Tom explains to Jeff how he confronted Ian at camp, and how Ian admitted to having said he'd vote Tom off. Jeff asks Ian about this "cloud" that seems to be over him during the last couple of tribal councils. ["A cloud formed by the humidity of Ian's sweaty efforts to make everyone like him, no matter what decision he makes in any direction ever. If you ask me." -- Wing Chun] Ian tells Jeff that he and Tom made "this gentleman's agreement that we would try to take each other to the final three." He goes on to insist that while he had a conversation about voting Tom off, he wasn't necessarily going to do that; it's just "a discussion that you have." Of course, according to his confessionals, it is indeed what he was going to do, but not admitting that during tribal council is -- guess what? -- part of the game. Furthermore, Ian never actually stared down that decision and had to write Tom's name on the paper. Might he have looked for a way out of doing something he really didn't want to do, just as Tom is doing right now? Yes, I think he might. Jeff basically asks Ian why, if it was just talk, he didn't go and tell Tom and let him know, so Tom wouldn't be blindsided if he found out. That's the killer question, of course: if it's part of your strategy and you have no secrets, you'd just tell. Ian says he did tell, but Tom says he didn't.
