My Word is My Bond

Hello, good people, and welcome back to the penultimate episode of Survivor Worlds Apart. That's right...we're a week away from the season finale and I don't know about you; but I have NO idea how this season is going to end up.
My boy Mike has been getting a winner's edit from Day 1, but I'm not sure he has enough left in him. Mama C was in a great position last week, but she knocked out her only true ally in Tyler. She has an idol, but that will only get you so far, and then you need some help. At this point, I wouldn't want to sit next to Carolyn at the final tribal, so I can't imagine any of these players will want to either. Sierra is getting the "missing person" edit, and yet, if she sat in the final three with Dan and Will, she could win the game by default.
Oddly enough, the best odds might be with Rodney at this point. While he has been WAY more lucky than good this season, if he can put his thoughts together, he has an argument for winning the game. I think it's a hollow argument, but with the competition that's left, it could be enough to win. I feel pretty confident that neither Dan nor Will has any shot at winning this game. The No Collars and Shirin will not cast a vote for either of those guys and that's the bulk of the jury. So, if you're Dan and Will, at this point, you're just playing for higher prize money and more air time.
To remind you about last week, Mike finally lost immunity but had plans to play his immunity idol. Though both Dan and Tyler were thrown out as possible votes, Mama C and Sierra joined forces with Mike and Tyler was sent packing. They saw him as the biggest threat to win the game, so they made their move. I'm not so sure it was the best thing to do. I'd have gotten rid of Dan. Even though I just said that Dan can't win the game, Dan does have the extra vote. And while he can't use it to win the game, he most definitely could use it to end someone else's game. If I'm Mama C, I'd have thought long and hard about getting rid of that advantage and keeping my closest ally in the game for one or two more votes.
Either way, tonight will be all eyes on Mike as he'll once again be fighting for his game life in the immunity challenge. If he gets it, it'll be a fun afternoon at camp as the alliance decides the next piece to cut. If he doesn't, it'll be much less interesting as we'll watch him scramble to try to get himself one step closer to the end. And with that, let's get to it.
We start the show at camp after the Tribal. Mike is super pumped about playing his idol and finally breaking up the alliance. He's not stupid, though. He knows his back is still firmly planted on the wall. Immunity or an idol is all that can keep him safe and he knows it. The next scene is vintage Dan. He struggles to get the fire lit and as Mike offers to help, Dan tells us all about how bad of a person Mike is and how he's done now that his idol is gone. He tells us how Mike always wants to be the hero and that it's all about him. The rest of Dan's speech sounded like, "Me, me, me, me, me, me, me." But it's all about Mike.
