Katie is momentarily floored, and initially doesn't know where to start. She picks up on the worst word in the speech without any trouble, saying she's sorry Gregg thinks she's "pathetic." "And I'm sorry you had to go there," she adds, almost tearing up but pulling herself back at the last minute as she says, "because I would never say anything like that about you." She says she doesn't think she's pathetic. She doesn't have "an athletic card" to play, and she says it yet again in defending herself -- "pathetic." She tells Gregg she had a strategy, and she followed it. Three times she mentioned the word "pathetic." I guess in a way, Gregg should be proud of himself for clearly finding something that really upset and hurt Katie, as that appeared to be the plan.
Steph steps up. She congratulates Tom and Katie for being there. She then reminds Tom of what he said to her when he pulled her aside and said he'd do what he could to fight for her. She'd like to know what, exactly, he did to fight for her. He tells her that he couldn't break his five-person alliance. Because, of course, Steph should understand that Tom wouldn't sacrifice himself for her, right? Right? Because it's only Tom for whom others are to sacrifice themselves. Steph asks Katie why Steph shouldn't vote for Tom. Katie claims that she hoped not to do this, but she feels she must, and then she says that Tom came to her before Steph even came to Koror, saying that whichever Ulong person came over, they needed to take that person out right away. Tom looks at her like she's crazy, but she repeats it. Tom's answer makes no sense. He says that he would have no reason to tell Katie -- when they might have had a four-way alliance with him, Ian, Katie, and Steph -- to get rid of Steph. Well, sure he would. If he believed going with the five-person group within which you have a three-person group is safer, you'd absolutely tell Katie that it had to be Steph. In fact, if you thought it was going to be Steph, you would certainly tell that to Katie. Why does it matter that Steph was in your alliance? Katie swears it happened. Tom doesn't, technically speaking, ever deny it -- he just says it wouldn't make sense for him to have done that. Steph has a seat.
Janu stands up. She starts with Tom, asking him to tell her how hard it was to "compromise [his] integrity" in the game. Tom says that he didn't compromise his integrity. He drew his lines, and he didn't cross them. He played hard, and "with as much honor" blah dee blah. He claims he tried not to hurt people. (Except Ian, I guess.) Now, it starts raining. Janu turns to Katie and says she wants to hear three positive and three negative adjectives about the way Katie played. And in an interesting, stupid, and weirdly admirable maneuver, Katie basically says that she knows Janu isn't going to vote for her, so she's not going to play that game. That's reckless and dumb for about six different reasons, of course, but I always want somebody in F2 to tell somebody on the jury to fuck off, because the dynamic can otherwise be revoltingly obsequious. Janu tries to get all, "You don't know you don't have my vote," and Katie shrugs, which again is stupid and slightly awesome. Janu is done, because Katie just won't play.
