Having trouble sleeping, Rupert finds a spot on a log near camp
and has a heart-to-heart chat with a faraway loved one.
- A trip to fetch water becomes an opportunity for one pair, with
questionable fates, to hatch a new plan and turn the tide in their
favor. Will their powers of persuasion work?
- Lillian has a slight anxiety attack.
- One castaway gives selflessly to another.
Guide: One player has an anxiety attack during a Reward Challenge,
two castaways whose fates are in jeopardy hatch a plan to turn things
in their favor.
CHALLENGE/ A vaguely pirate-like obstacle course - Rupert (and Jon)
like it's time for the traditional obstacle course with nets. Although
this time, the netting and poles look vaguely ship-like, making
this a Whole. New. Challenge. Wheee!!! Looks like four compete at
once, and they do so in pairs. The teams appear to be Rupert-Jon,
Sandra-Tijuana, Burton-Lillian and Darrah-Christa. Rupert-Jon are
shown competing against both the Sandra-T team, and the Burton-Lill
team. So chances are that this is done in heats, and one of those
groupings is the finalists. Since Lillian is also visible competing
against Christa, that suggests the last paired face-off is Rupert-Jon
versus Lillian-Burton. Somewhat surprising (well-fed) Lillian would
make the finals (although she's with the equally well-fed Burton,
and the competition was Christa and Darrah). Who wins? Well, hard
to say for sure, but you might expect the Burton-Lill duo to have
trouble against Rupert-Jon. And it would make sense, if Rupert
gets booted this episode, for another challenge win to help stir
the pot against him. Yeah... we'll go with that. Unless something
better comes along.
CHALLENGE/ Blow darts - Lillian wins
The golf picture-in-picture promo, captured by SurvivorPhoenix
(smaller caps below) shows the target, as well as a reaction shot
from Sandra (who doesn't look pleased). The text
from the ad described this challenge as "kill or be killed,"
suggesting it involves shooting to eliminate other players. So,
just about anyone could theoretically win, although those on the
chopping block are less likely to do so. We'll go with Lillian,
who did well with slingshots, and shockingly isn't much of a target.
predicted several weeks ago that this week's boot appears to be
Rupert. The True Dork Times and SurvivorPhoenix
have learned that this is likely true. Still waiting confirmation
from the all-important third source, but we can at least say we're
leaning toward a Rupert boot at this point.
