Tonight's vote could be a turning point in the game, that is, if Ashley does not have rocks in her head. Clearly, she should know that she will [again] be up on the chopping block for the next elimination, so now is the time to approach two-three people about a secret alliance, particularly the girls and one guy (with the agreement amongst the girls that they knock jaison or mick out and are the F3). This way, she can protect her own butt and form a strong alliance...banking that at least three of them will make the merge.
Of course, there is a good chance she is not the sharpest tool in the shed...so I'm not gonna assume/hope for anything. But this would be an excellent way to take out Russel and Jaison/Mick.
