Agree on Albert's edit - very strange. I really liked him until late....but now he seems to be getting a sneaky Sash type positioning. Very interesting that he and Sophie aren't as tight as we thought, but very telling that Albert says Sophie is the biggest jury threat and then Coach tells us how smart Sophie is.
Agree on most of your other points too. But still not sure re Coach. Feel like this season really has been all about his story and his leadership of the tribe, so I don't see him to be the villain that you do. In fact he was pretty sheltered from all the negativity and infighting last night. So I don't know, to me Coach and Sophie seem like the only two who have a chance.
All the jury exit interviews are saying they're going to vote for the best game play vs. "honor/loyalty" or bitterness. I hope they're right.
Seems to come down to whether Sophie can make a compelling case for her rational game play and behind the scenes voice of reason....vs Coach not turning the jury off with religious BS and instead owning up to his strategic and social game.
WIll be interesting to see how the Coach/Ozzy deal plays out....that could be the deciding factor. It does seem that Coach has all the jury connection story lines. Sophie doesn't seem to have many - so will that work in her favor, because she didn't promise any of them anything and therefore didn't ##### them off? Vs many of the jury might be let down by Coach. Or will the jury give Coach credit for the Cochran flip, which was the key play of the season? (Plus for getting them all to drink the kool aid)
In one of the Ponderosa clips, Whitney, Keith, etc. were all asking Cochran what he was told to get him to flip. So I'm interested to see if the jury focuses on that move or if it's all about loyalty/honor stuff.
