I have to say that this PC was the best one yet, due in large part to Jay and his puppetmaster abilities, and Kendra and her delusions of grandeur.
Louie was so sure that Jay was above board, that when Jay called him insane regarding his volunteering to toss himself on the alter, it really caught him off guard. Louie was truly worried and it showed - especially when the other pirates began to say that Kendra would be the wiser choice for a final battle. At that point, I honestly thought Louie was going to be cut adrift.
Not since Shii Anne of Thailand and Survivor A$$ have I seen anyone so totally out of sync with the social dynamic of the game and as oblivious to the strategic element as Kendra is. She honestly believed that she did her team a favor by not helping in that waterfall challenge, and by hanging back in other expeditions till it was time to dig. She also believed that her eavesdropping and snooping went unnoticed, and the "information" gathered was useful. Sigh.
Unlike Shii Anne's desire to use information to drive a wedge of mistrust into the strong alliances, Kendra went to Christa with "Jay is worried about you/thinks you are smarter than he originally thought" stuff, which Christa already knew. She had nothing, but believed that little nugget was a sure fire way to stay another few days. Then she decided that "there must be a reason you all keep saving my tush" was because she was valuable -- never understanding that her "value" was really in the fact that whoever went against her at the end would automatically WIN the game. I have to say, I'm so glad that the crews animosity towards her overshadowed the "noble but stupid" act of Louie. But at least we know Louie will NEVER make that mistake again.
According to the "next on" misdirection, the crew finally gets a clue that Jay is a master of the two faced "tell you what you want to hear" stuff. (and that has to be directly related to Louie being so surprised by what was said at PC) Finally, it appears that the remaining pirates will all start talking to each other and comparing notes on this guy. But, is it to little, to late?
