Survivor Worlds Apart - Episode 14 Recap - Part 2
It's a Fickle, Fickle Game
May 28, 2015
As we head to break, Mike tells us that he can finally breathe a little easier, but there's still quite a bit left to do. Oh yeah, what do you do when you win the immunity necklace? That's right, 'Merica - we do the Happy Dance!
We get back to camp and Mike tells us how he's happy about the final three, but he feels like he still has a million dollar decision ahead of him and that's who to take with him to the finals. He heads down to the water, as does Carolyn, which leaves Rod and Will to chat. Rodney's pretty convinced that Mike is with them. He told them about the Sierra vote and they've been blue since day one. Will tells us they're voting for Carolyn and if Mike's smart, he won't bring someone nicknamed "mama" to the final tribal.
We finally catch up with Mike and Carolyn, and Mike tells her that he has no plan to write her name down tonight and that he meant it when he told her final three. He says that all the blue collars turned their back on him. He tells her that it might be a million dollar mistake, but his gut is telling him to take Carolyn to the finals. He pretty much feels like Will and Rodney are unbreakable at this point, so his plan is for him and Carolyn to vote Rodney and force the tie. The tie breaker is a fire building challenge. So, he tells Carolyn that he has faith in her, but she probably ought to spend the rest of the day, stealthily practicing fire building. She's not thrilled about this, but she really doesn't have much of a choice. The alternative is Mike joining the other guys and dumping her outright.
When Mike gets back to camp, he engages Rodney in conversation. Meanwhile, Carolyn finds all the flint and heads off into the woods to practice. Rodney tells Mike that he could just vote Mama C and it would be real easy and they'd enjoy a guy's breakfast. Mike tells him that he's not sure what he wants to commit to right now. Rodney tells us that he knows Mike will bring him to the end, but he's trying to get Mama C's jury vote. Mike tells us that he would rather lose to Mama C than be the guy that took two goats to the end and won. We flash from Mike to Carolyn trying to make fire. So far, she's had no luck with the fire and is feeling pretty down. Mike gives her a pep talk and she tells us that while she's down a bit now, she'll be ready at Tribal.
So, we get to Tribal and do the weekly expression watch as the jury comes in and sees the necklace on Mike. Again, Shirin - super happy. Dan - looks like someone ran over his dog. Jeff starts by congratulating Mike on assuring himself a spot at the final Tribal. He then asks Will about what happened right after the challenge. Will says that they just felt so good about finishing the challenge. They wanted that moment.
