exactly!!!!!! that is exactly what my wife and I said! Who cares what they say?! The best defense is just to show that they don't care, that it is a game, and that nobody can affect them. Who cares what you say, it doesn't matter.
Because, for example, Charla is crying, etc, the originals are getting what they want, but if Charla sits in a chair with the group with the "F-You, don't care what you say" atitutude, the originals would run out of energy because what they say has ZERO effect on the alliance.
