"When two tribes go to war, a point is all that you can score." Hello, good people, and welcome back to the BOP Survivor: Cagayan recap. When last we hung out, Aparri and Solana are no more as the two tribes merged! The merge brought with it the head-on collision of two power alliances - Tony, Trish, Woo, LJ and Jefra from the Solana Tribe and Spencer, Tasha, Kass, Morgan and Jeremiah from the Aparri Tribe. Oh yeah, and Sarah was there too, but now all of a sudden thrust into the dreaded "swing vote" role.
Most of the episode was spent with both sides trying to woo Sarah to their respective side. In the end, Sarah chose to stick with her new family at Aparri. With immunity idols in play, Aparri hatched a plan to dump Tony, since Sarah guaranteed he didn't have an idol. They were wrong and Tony popped off about his idol right in front of them at Tribal. Switching to "the other one," Aparri was unfazed. Tony played his idol for LJ, LJ played his idol for Tony and Aparri voted off Jefra. Whoa, wait just a second...someone flipped! Because her tribe didn't tell her she was pretty too, Kass took her ball and went over to Solana and former "president of the swing vote" Sarah was sent packing. Tonight's episode promises a mad dash for a new idol with mysterious powers and it would seem the claws come out as Morgan becomes an issue. So, kick back, relax and settle in as I talk you through what happens this week on Survivor!
We begin the episode with a couple instabilities. The first, Aparri will be pissed and Kass will feel the heat. Second, Kass will tell us all how brilliant she is and that she made one of the greatest moves ever and it will surely win her the game. Just my predictions here, let's see how it plays out!
As the tribe gets back to camp, Spencer is geeking out about how amazing Tribal Council was. He tells us that they voted Jefra and dodged two idols, but all for naught. Around the fire, Kass tells Spencer that it's okay to be mad; she expects it. He says that he's not mad at her, but that she made a bad move. He tells us that she plays with emotion instead of her head. Back to the conversation, Kass is telling him that she's playing with her gut and that's how she's going to play. Spencer comes back with, "I'm well aware that all you're playing with is your gut." Heh...I love this kid. Kass then asks her new friends to cover her as she tells us that Aparri let her fall to number six and you can't do that. And naturally, if Kass is going to be number six, dammit SHE'S gonna decide who she's number six with. You can't tell her she's number six. She is charge of her own six destiny. Kass continues to try to explain her horrible play to Spencer by telling him she out-strategized him. Um...well, if you mean you trashed his game and your own because you didn't feel loved enough anymore...then yeah, you sure showed him. All you did, Kass, was ensure you won't get a sniff of that money.
