I also thought it was stupid for Bruce & Danielle not to take Terry up on his offer. They had a chance to break up the alliance and give themselves a better chance of making it to the final four.
Aras is an interesting guy. He is very well educated, well traveled and worldly for such a young guy. I haven't decided whether I like him or not. He is playing the game differently than most - very up front with his decision making and obvious as the young alpha male competing with the older alpha male, Terry. His "other worldly" new age spirituality was vaguely irritating at first, but I notice he has all but abandoned it to the reality of surviving in the hostile environment of the game.
