Yul and Becky now have a very, very weird conversation in which he tells her that he's trying to figure out how to avoid jury problems, and he's talking about the possibility of booting Jonathan, which would still give them 4-3, and would keep the jury from blaming him. The captioner makes Yul's speech look stupid by claiming that he says "I'll have victory votes on the jury," when he actually says, "I'll have their three votes on the jury" (meaning Adam, Candice, and Parvati). It seems like a dumb discussion, though, because it sounds like he's presuming (1) he'll be in the final two; and (2) either it won't be Becky in the final two with him or Becky wants to help him beat her in the jury, you know? I thought for a long time about this, and I think he's just oblivious. He's so used to feeling like a team with Becky that it isn't even occurring to her that he's completely going to the wrong person for advice here. The weird thing is that I'm not sure she even minds. I think they're both weirdly good at pretending they can separate their inherent competitiveness with each other and give each other impartial advice. Like, I almost think she wouldn't mind trying to step outside her own interests and be like, "Okay, if I were your friend, uninvolved in this, what would I tell you to do?" They have a really interesting cooperative dynamic, I think.
