Is this season really ending soon? If it is, it can be hard to believe that. Why do I say that? Well, there are still eight people in the game and, supposedly, next week will be the finale. I was surprised last year when they had six people in the finale episode. Would they really start a finale with seven people? Maybe I’m confused about when the finale is, but it doesn’t make sense that the finale is soon. How is that even possible?
Well, promos are saying that two contestants are going home after this episode. I don’t know if that means that it will be two hours or if it will be like in Samoa where they turned what would have normally been a reward challenge into an immunity challenge and keep the next immunity challenge. I don’t know if we’ll see something like that again ever. I just can get annoyed by wondering why there are two hour episodes when you’d think that they could have premiered the season earlier. Did they ever catch up on days after the evacuation of the island in the premiere? I guess that they will have by the time this episode airs. But enough of my ramblings.
In the first segment of the show, Will thinks that he can flip his way to the end. He needs to remember that people like Tony and Vecepia are the exception and not the rule. Bret talks about who to target in the game now. Not much happens in the first act.
In the second segment of the show, we get to an immunity challenge. The challenge seems pretty straightforward. It is another new one. Jay is the person who ends up winning the challenge after just getting one disk in after another. Jay: They see me rolling, they’re hating. He gets a bit cocky after his win, thinking that he doesn’t have to talk to anyone.
In the third segment of the show, Ken wonders who to target since Jay is immune. Will wants to go after Ken. David feels that he could be targeted since he doesn’t know what’s happening. Adam feels that Will is a huge target. Hannah is insecure as usual. (She makes me think of that One Direction song.) No one seems to be sure what is going on heading into tribal council. At tribal council, they talk about the previous tribal council. Loyalty is discussed as well. Will is voted out of the game. After tribal council, Jay feels that people aligned with him are cursed. Adam wants to vote out Jay.
In the fourth segment of the show, we get to the next immunity challenge. Adam openly helps Ken win the challenge. Was that a smart move? Is he even allowed to do that? Speaking of possibly dumb moves, I need to work on the end of the season awards that I give.
In the fifth segment of the show, David works out how to stay in the game and split the votes for some other player. Hannah is still after Sunday for reasons that I’ve never quite understood. Adam wants to split the votes between Jay and David. Adam point blank tells Jay to play the idol but Jay isn’t so sure that he needs to do that. Adam gets emotional again talking about his mother and Jay starts by giving him the cold shoulder, but then gets emotional as well.
Hannah is still bent on getting rid of Sunday and her own reasoning behind this seems flawed to me. If you are convinced she’s a goat, which she probably is, then you don’t need to vote her out. At tribal council, they discuss who the right person to be voted out is. Jay plays his idol thinking that he’d rather be safe than sorry. Jay wasted his idol. Sunday is the person who gets voted out, which seems like a waste to me. But, I am a David fan so him winning wouldn’t be bad to me.
On the next Survivor, we get to the season finale on Wednesday. How will the legacy advantage affect the game? Is the stealing reward advantage a moot point now? Will there be another idol in the game somehow? I feel that the idols should be gone by now, but I have no idea if they will make a surprise appearance again or not. Sometimes they don’t appear in logical ways since they keep changing with the game. We’ll see what ends up happening or not.
Total confessional count: Adam- 34, Bret- 14, Ken- 19, Hannah- 21, Jay- 28, Will- 16, David- 37, Sunday- 9. New confessionals this episode: Bret- 2, Ken- 3, Hannah- 2, Jay- 3, Will- 2, David- 2, Sunday- 0, Adam- 6.
Sunday had no confessionals this episode, the absolute lowest of all of them. Will had the second lowest with two, a number shared with Bret, Hannah, and David. Everyone else was higher with Adam as the highest with six. In terms of total confessionals, Sunday had the lowest with only nine. Will had sixteen total confessionals. Going into the finale, Bret will have the lowest with fourteen. Everyone else is higher than Will with David still the highest with thirty-seven, Adam the second highest with thirty-four, and Jay is the third highest with twenty-eight. We’ll see what happens a week from now. I’ll be back next Thursday with my thoughts on the finale. For now, this is Adam Decker, signing off.
