I would say that Survivor Samoa episode definitely lived up to the hype! I laughed and cheered all the way through the show. So let’s break it down. First the reward challenge. My husband loved the fact that Nat’s boobs popped out and wanted to see an unedited version. Too bad there is not one out there. But it did look fun and the purple team kicked butt. I was happy to see Russ and Natalie get some food. The yellow team’s mistake was putting John in the sling. I know he has to weigh more than Monica so in my opinion it would have made more sense to let her grab the flags. Russell did get his clue and what did he do with? He ran away from Dave and found the idol again! Wow! How is that even possible? Even if you don’t like his tactics, he has to be one of the best to ever play the game. I am amazed and dumbfounded right now.
The Immunity Challenge: The best part of the show for me was when Laura missed the tiles and Shambo bursts out laughing and then says “Today is the day of reckoning.” I about fell off the couch. Could she be any more obvious? It was a good moment. And what about Brett breaking two tiles? That was great except he didn’t have as good of aim at the cross bow as Mick and finally Mick prevails and wins the immunity idol. Very happy for him and the former foa members. About time!
Tribal Council: Even though I knew what was going down, thanks to missyae, it was still exciting and I was on the edge of my seat. I was actually surprised to see Natalie as the Galu pick instead of one of the guys. I guess they didn’t see Jaison as a threat. When the vote went 5-5 I knew John had to flip but Monica kept looking down and for a minute I thought it might have been her who voted out Laura. I don’t blame John. Why would he keep Laura in the game and chance getting the stones? Granted it is a 1 in 8 chance but for a million dollars I would have sent her packing too. I thought it was a smart move on his part. What do yall think? Would you have chanced it and picked the rocks?
One more thing: The foa’s came into the merge with the odds stacked against them at 8-4. Look at them now! They convinced Galu to vote out Erik, they brought over Shambo, Russ played the idol and then found 2 more, sent Kelly home and tonight forced a tie that led to Laura getting evicted. What a comeback! It has to be the best ever in Survivor history. Someone can correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t remember one.
Next episode: Russell is back to his old self and we see the return and the demise of the chicken. I didn’t know they still had the chicken. It is going to be good! :twisted:
I am so glad it is Thursday! We have a lot to look forward to tonight on Survivor Samoa. The castaways race off in search of the idol and the Galu’s make it no secret that they are not going to let Russell out of their sights. He doesn’t seem all that worried about finding it and looks pretty relaxed in the hammock so what does he have up his sleeve?
Hopefully the spoilers are true and one of the former members of Foa will win the immunity challenge. It has been a while since they have won anything and are definitely due. I’m wondering if they will have a reward challenge this episode. I’m pretty much pulling for the four Foa’s to win everything from here on out. I like them all and would be pleased with any of them winning the million.
Hopefully this episode will live up to the hype and it will be a GREAT show. Looking forward to tribal council. Who do you think breaks from their alliance and joins the other side? My bet is on John. Be sure to watch it all tonight and join us here after the show to talk it out.
Update: I just found this post by missyae on blows: “Let’s make this as generic as possible so nobody gets mad and thinks it is slanted to someone other than who they like. Immunity challenge is won by a Foa other than Russell Hantz. There is a tie vote at Tribal Council 5-5. There is another vote which does not result in a tie.Bye bye Laura!”
Hey guys! So I searched and searched for Survivor Samoa spoilers and came up with absolutely nothing! Things are being kept way on the down low for Thursday’s Survivor show so let’s see if we can break it down from the previews and title.
The day of reckoning means Retribution for one’s actions, so this brings to mind revenge and payback. The only question is who’s payback? Will Foa Foa get their time to shine in challenges this week? Will Galu get to vote off Russ? I’m going to speculate and please remember this is just my thoughts and not what is going to happen. I believe that Russell will indeed make it to the final 3 so he will be safe this week. I don’t think he finds the immunity idol but either wins the individual immunity challenge or manages to bring over another member of Galu to his side. We have seen the previews of him lying in the hammock saying “I don’t need it.” Is he talking about the idol? I don’t know. Let’s say he does not win the challenge and does not find the idol. Who would come over to his side? It definitely won’t be Laura since they clearly dislike each other. With Laura sticking with Galu, we can assume that Monica will stay with her. Dave is so pro Galu that he won’t switch which leaves us with Brett and John. John already had a deal with Russ and then turned on him last week and I know absolutely nothing about Brett so can’t even imagine what he will do. He and Kelly were close so maybe he thinks he is the next target of the Foa’s so he makes a secret deal.
I’m going to go way out on a limb and give you this scenario. CBS has said this will be the most dramatic tribal council ever and that one person switches alliances in order to save themself. Here is a possibility: Russell is going to vote with Galu and evict Jaison. That way he is safe another week and give himself time to find the idol.
Whatever happens, it is going to be such a great show! What do yall think? What’s going to happen on Thursday?
