a screaming match erupts.
- One Survivor loses an item that is crucial to the tribe's survival,
inciting the tribe's fury.
- A painfully physical Immunity Challenge leaves the fate of two
Survivors in the hands (literally) of their fellow tribe members.
sink, sink yer boat - Drake wins
the two sets of boats confused us. But both sets of boat shots appear
to belong to this challenge, which the TV ads place as the reward
challenge. Distance caps of Probst show no presence of Pokey the
immunity idol, so this is likely the case. As for who wins, Drake
ought to win such a challenge easily, especially with Jon and Michelle
sitting out. And by the looks of Michelle's exuberant backflip,
that seems likely to be the case. We see a dejected Morgan tribe
trudging home after what appears to be this challenge. Drake then
is shown using one of the boats from this challenge, presumably
along with another piece of the treasure map, to look for their
treasure chest. The web promo suggests (weakly) they might find
it. Let's hope it's not Pandora's box.
the tribemate, hang the tribemate - Drake wins
CBS web bullets promise "A painfully physical Immunity Challenge
leaves the fate of two Survivors in the hands (literally) of their
fellow tribe members"
(as opposed to, say, the extremely physical RC). New TV ads show
Michelle giving a thumbs-up sign while harnessed into a tripod structure.
This would explain the "fate... in the hands... of their fellow
tribe members" part, if they have to do something to move her/
keep her up there. What's odd is the glum looks on Drake as they
march with their flag, which one might presume is before the challenge.
And chances are it probably is. All we know about the challenge
is that it's physical. Drake will be able to sit two people again,
and still have tiny Michelle in the harness for hoisting purposes.
Their three strong men can compete once again, and in physical challenges
they've been more than a match for Morgan so far. Unless Burnett
does something screwy with the challenge, making it such that only
Lillian can win it (competitive knot tying, alas, isn't particularly
Tough week this
one. The title suggests that the internal divisions within Drake
may finally cause it to tear apart, as Samburu did in Ep3 of S3.
Or will it be a rerun of Maraamu in S4, where the pitiful loser
tribe continued an undending string of challenge losses? Tough to
say, without seeing anything useful about how the IC works. But
a safe bet would be: if it's physical, the Mountain Man and Hans
and Franz should once again overmatch the also-rans in Morgan. If
so, the obvious boot for Morgan would be Lillian.
Yes, the smart move would be to give their "leader," Andrew,
his pink slip, but this is Morgan we're talking about here. They'll
do what he tells them.
