  1. I assume Angelina is getting votes because she was in on the vote but tried to fool Natalie into giving her her jacket. The jacket part didn’t work, but I imagine people respected the plan.

  2. I don’t think what Angelina did was cruel. She was probably just saying something in a jokey way, and it had to be put into the episode since it ended up being such a crucial detail. After putting up with those storms, if I was planning on voting someone off who had a jacket (knowing they are going to a hotel), I would definitely want it. Natalie definitely took it to a weird place, but that shouldn’t reflect negatively on Natalie.

    I also don’t think the vote was a bad move for Mike. He seems like the person who can burrow his way into the Goliath tribe. With Nick he gets bonds to Christian, and then with John and Dan establishing bonds, there is another potential route. So far, I just feel the David v Goliath is going to come into play a lot less than it has in previous seasons. Goliath have proved they are fractured post-swap, and David didn’t go into the swap as a united front. I could easily see the post-swap tribes being more significant in the future than the original tribes. Though, in saying this I see the Goliath guys being the more likely candidates for greating those bonds, as so far Kara and Angelina sit solidly on the outs in their tribes, and then we have no clue where Alison stands.
