I agree. Brad may have gotten away with telling only the woman with the nose ring
about the things that he had found. But, IMO, telling the mafia pastor was a big
mistake. He seemed to be under the impression that she, nose ring woman, and him
were an alliance of three, while the edit had not shown that to be the case.
I'm assuming that Probst will instruct somebody on the crew to leave a new parchment
in plain sight at Green Tribe's camp in order to keep the three way immunity idol in
play. My feeling is that if this element was abandoned due to Brad's dismissal, the
references to it would have been removed from the final edit.
