Thought Amanda's play was the smartest since Yul used his II to force Jonathan to switch sides on Cook Islands. Not only did Parvati and her blindside Alexis, but Amanda took advantage of the opportunity to:
Get Cirie to promise she was only voting against her because she feared a tie. Makes it harder for Cirie to now vote against Amanda as Amanda could play this up to jury members who like Amanda and/or value loyalty.
Criticize Erik as disloyal in front of Eric's mentor Ozzy at TC.
Praise Parvati for loyalty, which is unlikely to cost Amanda votes if the two of them make final TC since Ozzy and Eliza are not voting for Parvati anyway. Also puts pressure on Parvati to not turn on the individual who is attempting to redeem her in the eyes of the jury. Praising Parvati for loyalty was also a subtle way of reminding everyone Parvati did betray her previous alliance and was about to betray her new alliance with Alexis and Natalie.
