Survivor – Two fer

November 17th, 2006

Wow, good episode, mostly because Aitu completely rocks in the challenges, the retribution factor runs high in that tribe, and their focused attention to the tasks that challenge them just brings it.  The frat-boy, sorority-girl tribe of Raro just can’t keep up.  Jonathan, bless his heart, understands how desperate the situation is, and it absolutely right, the tribe needs to grow up.

Nate who was a confident prick last episode is sobbing now, as he realizes his situation.  The injection of the genie bottle at the immunity challenge really messed up everyone’s game.  Aitu who was in the  position of win or die would have been decimated had they lost.  I wonder if the producers had two bottles on the contingency that Aitu lost, or if Aitu really would have had to vote off two people.

The ashen faces of Raro were priceless as Parvarti read off the note inside the bottle, you’ve voted off one person, now you’ll vote off another.  The Cracker alliance stayed solid and the once over-confident Raro is clearly split.  There is a multi-ethnic four person alliance in Aitu, and a 4-1 alliance in Raro.  If they merge, and given Jeff’s statement at TC, perhaps doubtful, Aitu could pick up Nate and Raro could be picked off one by one.  Regardless, I think Yul and Ozzie have the best position at the moment, their performance in the challenges reminds me of Tom and Ian back in Pulau.

My, my, my how the proud have fallen… Raro falls from an 8-4 majority after Candace’s mutiny to a thin 5-4 spread, with at least two people ripe for the picking (Jonathan wouldn’t want to coddle the school kids he’s now attached to, and Nate has to feel close to betrayed after last night’s two-fer.  Wonder if they’ll let Aitu pick one more off, then offer another chance at a mutiny, and see who comes over then.  That would be interesting.  I give up on predicting, because this season clearly anything goes (that said, merge next week, you heard it here first… :D).

    I am definitely enjoying this season of Survivor more than past seasons. The injection of Exile Island last year was a good twist – didn’t play out like the producers had hoped, I think, and became kind of a nonfactor in the game. But this year it has played into the game much more.
    I also think the mutiny twist was THE defining moment for this game. I sort of expected Jonathan and Candace to be packing their bags quickly, but now they’re sitting pretty amongst the decimated Raro tribe. Nate has GOT to be nervous considering his position, and praying for a merge to happen soon. His only hope is for Raro to win immunity, then merge, then win individual immunity, and convince one of the tribes (probably Aitu) to pick off members of the other (probably the Caucasian alliance in Raro). Otherwise, Nate is toast and this game gets VERY interesting.
    Will there be a merge? Yes, there has to be. I predict AFTER the vote next week,when teams are dead even.

    Game on!
