Only occurred to me last night that the French captain instantly turns this deception back on him by disguising that (lieutenant's?) corpse as the captain. Not the same trick but very similar.
They're playing selection games, which are opticratic and surrogative

I can't live without Corpsey. He's an essential part of my psyche. I'm adrift whenever he is not properly integrated into my personality

A key part of good decision theory is a certain deontological, what we could call "probabilistically consequentialist," attitude to what is the correct course of action, where the actual outcome has little or no influence on whether a decision was right or wrong
