ED left because the DR told him that Dani was going to get rid of him, and he felt betrayed. If it was a family emergency, I think the family would know and they didn't even know. I do think it was dumb to turn on her dad early, but I do think it was smart to turn on BRJJ. Dani or a newbie would've won if production wouldn't have rigged the game. KDP were awesome competitors and didn't cry for production help like Jordan and Rachel did.
