because. IC: Boran, see below.
Boot: Lindsey (swish!).
from Ep.6 and Ep.7 previews:
6: "I'd Never Do It to You"
One age-aligned group fights to save one of its own, while another
considers betrayal. A "quiet" conversation is overheard by the wrong
person. A tribe member many seemed to dislike turns out to
be a pretty good teacher. (From Zap2It,
virtually indentical to CBS's claptrap).
we think it means
One age-aligned group fights to save one of its own.
The previews show this extensively - it's the MallRats trying to
hide Lindsey's votes against.
While another considers betrayal.
Could be just about anyone...
A "quiet" conversation is overheard by the wrong person.
Again, just about anyone here, too. Likely prospects: an ex-Boran
hears MallRats discussing Lindsey's votes, Kelly hears Lex and Tom
calling her a "kid", or Brandon hears ex-Borans planning to vote
A tribe member many seemed to dislike turns out to be a pretty good
Archery challenge, Frank is an unliked archer. Boran wins
? (Guessing Samburu, because they're shown).
No obvious previews of this. Squat from the Early Show. The web
preview has one shot (Fig. 1) of Samburu walking together, in clothes
that may or may not be different from the immunity challenge (Lex and
KimP look to be wearing the same clothes, Tom and Lindsey are wearing
slightly less than in the IC archery shots). So this pic is either going
to RC, or possibly returning from IC (empty handed). We're guessing
it's most likely before RC, mainly because Lindsey has moved her buff
from her neck to her wrist.
Fig. 3: The path of Tom's arrow suggests Samburu is shooting at
the left-hand set of targets.
Fig. 6: Which target is it? As best as we can tell, the target
in the inset most closely matches Boran's farthest target (arrow).
Boran - hey,
whaddya know? Vidcap analysis can actually work when MB plays
About time they came up with something cool. This one involves
flaming projectiles, and targets that appear to completely explode when
hit by a barely-burning arrow. Sweet. We can tell this is
IC, because the web preview shows Lindsey arriving, holding the idol.
Later shots show His Probstness standing next to the idol in an authoritative
fashion. So who wins? The apparent order the teams are hitting
the targets is front-to-back. Figure 5 appears to show Boran's farthest
target getting hit (Fig. 5 and 6). How do we know it's Boran's?
(1) It most closely resembles the farthest right-hand target (Fig. 6);
(2) The crack in the rock, the lack of grass, and the patch of wate
rin the background best fit this being the farthest Boran target, and
(3) Frame-by-frame analysis shows not only (as was originally noted
elsewhere) heat coming from the right of the target in Fig. 5, but there
are also sparks flying over from the right. This suggests there
is a flaming target to the right, making the target in Fig. 5 Boran's
last one. Unless they hit this one out of order, that's a pretty
strong suggestion they win. We'll go with Boran winning this one.
CBS promises an "intense tribal council," which, while generally meaningless,
might indicate some Lindsey fireworks. In a tie vote, Lindsey
would get to plead her case before the revote, which might not be pretty,
since she knows she's doomed. Certainly, any Samburu TC should
be intense, because Linz has been trying to hide her votes against for
six days now. We're guessing that none of the ex-Boran votes will
be shown before Jeffy pulls them out of the box, adding to the "suspense".
spoilers (in vague order)
(1) "Diane's friends" - list given by Diane in Final Chat of who she
talks to from Samburu: "like Carl and Theresa [sic.], Linda, Lindsey
and Silas." Sounded fake at the time, but Carl's and Linda's boots
are making this look better and better. The importance here is
that we think the non-jury members were sequestered from those bootees
on the jury. Based on the number of Samburus here, who Diane had
never met beforehand, this would require every one of these people to
be the next ones booted. Linda's boot shows that the order was
not exact, although for several reasons, we think it's roughly accurate,
suggesting Teresa's next.
(2) "Carl's non-friend" (new!) - in Carl's Final Chat, he mentions he
never really got to know KimP. This would fit with the "Diane's
list" of pre-jury bootees, all of whom presumably joined in on Diane's
month-long safari as they were booted.
(3) "Silas' buddy list" - According to his final chat, he apparently
did not go on safari, but instead hung out at base camp. There,
he would meet bootees as they arrived every three days. He says
his favorite contestant is 'Big Tom" (whom he did not meet on the show),
and sounds quite close to him, right down to naming Tom's cologne.
He also says he does not correspond with Lex (whom he also did not meet
on the show), later backpedaling to say they didn't "hit it off" - suggesting
Lex may have been final two. 91X in San Diego reports Silas and
Kelly (third person not met on the show) watch the show together, so
they may have met at base camp too.
