Alex goes up to a security guard, and he voices over that he was "getting help" from this guy. Alex claims in an interview, with overwhelming gravity, that the security guard said, "I'm told I cannot help you." Interestingly, rather than actually seeing the guard say any of this, we only hear Alex describing it, first in the interview, and then to Ray and Deana, whom he tells that the guard says he was asked not to help them by "the guy in the cap." Just keep in mind, we saw none of that actually occur, nor did we see in what tone of voice it was said. I mean, "I'm told I cannot help you"? It makes no sense that the guard would say that and mean it, because what authority would the guard even think Rob had to make such a pronouncement? It sounds much more like something that would have been said by the guard in semi-jest after Rob made some comment in semi-jest like, "You're not going to tell everybody else about this, are you?", but that would have taken away from the drama, which I suspect is why we never saw it happen. Anyway, Lynn and Alex meet with Debbie and Bianca and Greg and Brian, and tell them that since Rob and Amber are "really trying to BS [them]," that means they need to get on the other bus. And then Alex and Lynn tell Susan, "Just FYI, don't trust Rob and Amber." Keep in mind, Susan is traveling with Patrick, who has already declared his intentions to align with Rob and Amber for the sole purpose of drawing them in so as to more efficiently fuck them over later, so presumably, Susan can't possibly be all that offended unless she (1) would have been equally shocked to hear Patrick speaking thusly; or (2) is getting ready to gobble rather a large hypocrisy sandwich later on. Great with mustard! I'm telling you, a lot of hassle could have been avoided here if people had been able to decipher the tricky Spanish word "directo."
Alex confronts Rob, which is sort of pointless, given that Rob isn't obligated to answer to Alex, who is another contestant and not a study hall proctor. Alex asks whether Rob talked to the security guard, and Rob immediately says he did. Alex asks whether Rob told the security guard not to talk to the rest of them, and Rob says no, he didn't tell the guard that. Which might or might not be true, considering we saw nothing one way or the other except for Alex describing it third-hand. Rob then takes a dip in the deep pool of irony, saying, "All this politicking, and back and forth, and whispering, it does nobody any good at all." He's completely insincere, but he's exactly right. Sharing actual information is completely different from running around bitching about who did what to whom, and that's exactly where the line is between productive and not.
