Dan. It's WIFOM. Maybe Big wanted to be seen protecting Nov. Maybe he was protecting his QT buddy. It's conjecture until we look at Nov more closely.
If search would start working, we could see what Nov said about Roger, as well as Big.
Regardless, Nov and Scrilla need to be looked at. If our vig dropped one of them, I would be okay with that.
I know that, but I think there are more advantages to protecting two town night 1 than protecting any town, especially when they don't know how many killing roles there are yet. Especially on the off-chance one of Big Man or scrilla/Nov were to be watched/tracked.
It's not impossible, I'm just saying we shouldn't assume he wouldn't protect two of his teammates.
