CBS Press Release: “Tempers flare and an alliance threatens to splinter apart at the most dramatic Tribal Council yet.” The Day of Reckoning: A clever castaway jeopardizes the success of a scheme to ensure their own safety in the game. So in episode 9 of Survivor Samoa we had the most memorable tribal council and this week we have the most dramatic. It just keeps getting better and better…
We know for a fact from Jeff Probst in the last tribal council that there is now a third hidden immunity idol in play. We all saw everyone scrounging around looking for it and following Russell’s every move. Can he beat the odds and find it again?? That is the big question on the minds of all Survivor fans! I would be surprised if he manages to uncover it with Galu on his heels but with Russ you never can tell. We know from past spoilers that he is probably going to be in the final 3 so he has to keep saving himself somehow.
The immunity challenge this week shows all ten contestants lined up and throwing something to try and break what looks like ceramic tiles and whomever breaks 3 moves on to the next round. They do have to break their own tiles and not that of their competitors so they need good aim. The second round entails shooting a crossbow at an archery board. From the pictures we know Brett advances to this round but it is not clear who joins him. I’m not even going to speculate right now on who wins the challenge.
Tribal council is going to be real interesting this week. First we have a possible tie with the 4 Foas and Shambo, making it 5-5. Russell will need to bring over 1 more member of the Galu tribe in order to save himself if he doesn’t have the idol or win the IC. In the promos, he is shown laying in the hammock smiling and saying he doesn’t need the idol this week so you have to assume he either wins immunity and makes another alliance. We are looking for the showdown between him and Laura so perhaps this is the week she goes. I would think in order to keep Shambo on their side the Foa’s will have to vote out Laura, that is unless she wins the IC yet again! Surely not 3 in a row. If she does then we have to face the possibility that either Monica or John will be leaving this episode.
