VETRHUS of Rogaland
An ash I know, Yggdrasil its name. With water white is the great tree wet; thence come the dews that fall in the dales. Green by Urth's well does it ever grow.
Cochran is definitely the MVP of the season. His gameplay has been perfect and he's been spouting off some terrific one-liners. (Though his "delicious" speech was a bit cringe-worthy.)
I agree with the Grantland article--part of what makes Cochran so great this season is his tribe is actually letting him play rather than treating him like the annoying little brother that won't go away.
I think Malcolm made a huge error in not continuing to look for the idol despite Andrea's presence. He was worried about Andrea finding it, but that would be just as bad as Malcolm not finding it.
Amen to all.
Yeah, the way Cochran was dismissed previously was so damn depressing. This season he's treated like a real person, flaws and all, and he's remarkably adept at playing the game. I don't want him to merely win the people's choice. At this point, he can win it all.
Malcolm should have just found the idol, then hid it between the THREE. They would have at least introduced a gambling aspect to the majority vote, or use it to bargain for a vote. Give it to one of the majority members in return for a vote.
