I think it was "hitching on and not letting go".
Ken and Gerard realised they weren't going to get rid of them so they decided to work with them for this leg.
I think that was a good decision, why bother to let animosity build up?
I would be annoyed if another team just followed every move I made and would rather have them working with me than simply riding my coat tails.
Andre and Damon are nothing if not tenacious.
