Mike points out that they got rid of Sierra's best friend for this same reason - they were too close. He tells her that the plan is for Joaquin to go first. Sierra finally speaks and tells us that she has two alliances coming at her and she's excited to be wanted in the game. She goes on to say that it makes her sick to her stomach for her old tribe to treat her like they did and now come back begging for her vote. Dan goes on to tell her that Joe is with them. He goes on to say that if they take out Joaquin, Rodney's going to explode. "Let him explode," is Mike's response. YES! Do what's best for you and don't worry about the repercussions from the minority alliance. Sure, you want their vote at the end, but let's be honest here: if Joaquin goes now and Rodney's next, neither of them is on the jury so they have no say in the rest of the game. So, he's right. Who cares if Rodney loses it?
They are making one helluva a sales pitch, until Dan says, "Just close your mouth, open your ears and watch what happens." Nope, I was right. He has no idea. Dude, you could have said the same thing without the "close your mouth" part and you would have been okay. Tell her to listen close and watch closer to see what's going on. That's great. But the second you tell her to close her mouth, you've just killed your entire alliance and your game. Oh yeah, you've pretty well killed Joe and Mike's game too. Way to go. The next words out of Sierra's mouth to us, "I hate Dan." Yep, that went well. She knows the blue collars only want her for a vote and will get rid of her as soon as they have the chance.
Our next discussion - wow, there are a lot of discussions tonight - is Joaquin telling Tyler that everyone is voting Joe tonight. Tyler throws in on that plan. And can I just say that I think it's interesting the game that Tyler is playing. I really feel like he might be the smartest guy out there, but he's letting Joaquin stand out front and be the point man for all this nonsense. When all is said and done, no matter how the vote goes tonight, I think Tyler is in the best spot to still have options available to him.
HERE'S the talk I've been waiting to see. Joe and Sierra are hanging out on the beach. She tells him she's not sure where she's at because she's the kind of person that will play with her head and her heart. She tells us that she still, right before Tribal, is not sure what she's going to do. She knows that this decision will change the course of the game. I'll tell you what this is coming down to. She hates Dan and she hates Rodney. Who does she hate more? Who has offended her the most? Who would she most like to see out of this game? That's what her decision will come down to and she'll have the couple hours of Tribal Council to help make that decision. I'd wager she's waiting to see which of them is the bigger ass at Tribal and she'll flip the other way.
