In the recap of the season thus far, Jeff asks if anyone will have the gall to join Dawn and Whitney and "turn the game upside down." Going back to camp, Coach tells the whole Te Tuna tribe that Jim is the most dangerous kind of person and they're going to grow together as more of a family with him gone. Coach knows that people at the bottom of the alliance can't know they're on the bottom.
Whitney isn't stupid, though, she knows Coach is running the show. He is also running Tai Chi class. Cochran is aware that he's in the cult and drinking "the Coach Kool-Aid." Coach tells Cochran that he's worried about Albert and Brandon getting squirrely. He also promises that he'll do everything in his great power to make sure Cochran doesn't get booted at 7.
