Now Ethan and Tom fetch firewood together and discuss the status of their alliance as it pertains to Lex Loser's vote in the last Tribal Council. In a confessional, Tom tells us that Lex Loser is worried, because he jeopardized the Boran alliance when he voted against Frank instead of Brandon. We now see Lex Loser is by himself fetching wood about six feet away from where Ethan and Tom are having their conversation...about him. Ethan tells Tom that before beginning the game, he was "totally 100\% anti-alliance." He says he wanted to do it "[himself] and all by [himself]," but he concluded that it's impossible. Then they both agree, "You can't do it." Tom explains to Ethan that he feels betrayed by Lex Loser, and Ethan responds that he doesn't understand why Lex Loser didn't tell them he was voting separately. I'm confused: I thought Lex Loser did tell them he wouldn't vote against Brandon. In any case, Tom rants that Lex Loser did it on his own and in doing so proved he was only worried about himself. He says that only now is Lex Loser worried about the others. In a confessional, Ethan posits that Tom is "true" to Ethan and to Kimj, but that it will take a little bit to get Lex Loser back on Tom's good side. Tom then tells us he doesn't know what will happen in the future, but "from here on out, [he'll] have question with Lex Loser." Tom and Ethan carry their wood-laden stretcher past Lex Loser and Frank going the opposite way. They greet each other, and it's a moment packed with ominous tension and fearful angst. Except not.
