You Be My Brutus Today?"
Filmed July 23-25,

The great lie continues to affect the decisions of castaways
who believed Jon when he swore on his grandmother's grave.
- A luxurious strategy session enjoyed spa-style, with food, massages,
showers and privacy, is spoiled by one castaway.
- Faltering alliances and redrawn allegiances leave no one safe,
pushing one castaway to ask another, "You're not gonna betray
- There's nothing like a guy in silk pajamas proclaiming what a
great date he is!
CHALLENGE/ Super Challenge? - Jon/Lill/Darrah win?
challenges are shown. One involves shooting replica blunderbuss
guns, the other appears to be the traditional "Super Challenge,"
comprised of pieces of previous ones. We originally liked the
shotting challenge for RC, but as several people have noted (and
we tried to ignore), Lill is sporting a new top at that one.
So Lill is apparently the
reward winner, getting a trip and a top, and the shooting challenge
must happen second. The winners get a plane trip to, as SNN reported
in early August, Hacienda del Mar on San Jose, and a man
won this reward, and took a guest
point out on EZ that Jon's "not just a pretty face" confessional
in the web promo has a structure in the background, suggesting it
was taken at the reward site. So that suggests at least Jon and
Lill are winners. Can we try for three? The post-Ep10 preview said
"a few lucky castaways" get to enjoy the reward, and we
see Jon, Darrah and Lill running down the beach together. If they're
a team, and they win, that might explain Burton throwing his hands
up disgustedly. And the luxurious reward might be "spoiled"
in Jon's eyes by the presence of Mrs. Third Wheel Morris. But he
did promise a threesome, didn't he?
CHALLENGE/ Super Challenge? - Darrah wins?
looks to be in just as much trouble this week as Tijuana was last
week, but she somehow gets to the final two. Could she pull off
two wins in a row? Maybe. But Burton is a solid favorite for anything
involving targets. He's shown hitting a target, although it's not
the one shown in close-up (which would be Darrah's, with a burned-out
Christa one behind it). While there are three rows of six targets
each, a single player's targets do not appear to be grouped together.
This suggests the challenge might be yet another eliminate-the-competition
one. If so, unless Burton can run the table as well as he did with
blowguns, he might have to fight to stay in, while Darrah might
slip through. Eh, too many variables, but someone wins. We'll guess
Phoenix posted, Darrah and Lill are safe. Jon is way too obvious
(and the promo specifically asks if someone will "finally take
him down" - the answer to such questions is always "no").
That leaves Burton, Sandra and Christa vulnerable. Since Jon will
be using his grandmother's imaginary grave as proof of intent again
this week, Burton is probably also safe. So we're down to Sandra
and Christa. One of these was played up as the boot in the previous
week's ads, only to escape unscathed.
That would be Christa.
