Good news, 2 down 2 to go.
Bad news, Pinkie Pie is dead.

Well that was surprisingly anticlimactic.

I made myself dizzy thinking about how Pinkie Pie could be lying...

I have read the night phases so I know who is who, and won't spoil it but in either scenario Pinkie is basically hosed, or has hosed everyone else unless she's a civilian bluffing really hard. And even then is still hosed.

If Pinkie's the cop: she just painted a huge target on her back meaning The nurse will likely choose to save her. Which means the mafia has three choices involving Pinkie. To take advantage of the Nurse choosing to save Pinkie by virtue of protecting the exposed cop, and instead take out two others. All while throwing suspicion on Pinkie of lying and being mafia for how why would mafia target fellow mafia except to cover their own flank. They could also target her figuring nurse might not or still might and just take someone else out, keeping everyone confused, especially if nurse doesn't save her but Pinkie surviving still looks suspicious, as mafia could have double tapped the other target. Or they could double tap Pinkie, doing her in for sure.

If Pinkie is Mafia: There is only two real possibilities. They either double tap a target to keep Pinkie's cover figuring the nurse tries to save her. Or they just do two others in to finish things quicker exposing Pinkie as not a target in spite of announcing herself a cop which makes her look like Mafia.

If Pinkie is Civilian: Nurse tries to protect her leaving real cops exposed potentially as other targets, or Pinkie gets double tapped. Or the nurse doesn't protect her, and Pinkie is done in anyways.

Of them the only situation where Pinkie has a real chance or choice to lead towards survival/success is if she is Mafia. Least from my pondering.

MY big worry is that the nurse will figure that Pinkie's the next target and aim to save her, only to be feinted out and two totally different targets are selected, leaving the teams 2-on-2, and best case scenario is a draw, provided that the mafia don't convince a non- to vote against the other non-.

Yeah, the Mafia's got a tough choice against them here. (I have read the night phases so I know who's who, but to keep it spoiler free:)

1. If Pinkie is Mafia, or if she's actually a cop and the Nurse saves her while they target someone else, then they've just set up for the scenario Freelance mentioned. 2 remaining mafia vs the remaining two Townies.

2. If Pinkie is a cop as she claimed, then the mafia can combo-vote her and stop the nurse from saving her. Leaves it as 2v3, but guaranteed one cop out and they just gotta get lucky with catching the other. One more night phase at the very least, and if they can get one of the good guys taken out in tomorrow's lynch then that's that.

3. If Pinkie is a cop and the nurse saves her, but the Mafia pick her and another, then it comes down to luck on whether they catch the Nurse or not. If they don't, the cops' detective work tonight will reveal the final mafia one way or another and a 3 person majority means that the voting is final and done. Town wins.
