Whoever gets voted out it's probably another vote down the drain for Rafe. They need to get rid of Danni if they want a shot at Bobby Jon and Gary's votes, but these people all have big gaping holes in their gameplans so it could go either way. I'm thinking they should keep Lydia because while she might not lose emotional votes, she'll lose gameplay votes. She's also the most non-threatening person ever in any challenge, physical or mental.But back to Rafe and Danni....so if they are the true alliance, then they have to decide whether to vote out Lydia or Steph.. I can see that they both feel they might win over either of those in the final 2, but that Steph might win in the final 3, so they should take her out if she doesn't have immunity. The mistake might be if Rafe felt more loyal to Steph and they took out Lydia... or if Lydia actually came close to winning in the final 3?
Of course if they plan to take each other to final 2 then they should take out Steph because she might beat them.
They could do it by convincing Lydia to vote for Steph, which shouldn't be hard, and Steph to vote for Lydia (using the lets have a strong final 3 argument--and Steph seems to like Danni and be willing to go along with her) and then if they stick together they really get to decide which one goes home, unless one of those 2 gets immunity, and even if one does they are able to be safe themselves because the immunity winner will still follow the plan.
