Survivor Worlds Apart - Episode 14 Recap - Part 2
It's a Fickle, Fickle Game
May 28, 2015
Rodney is pissed. You can tell he didn't want to go out this way. Of course, the Survivor fan and writer in me says, "Serves you right. You went through pre-game and 38 days of the game and not one time did you even think about starting a fire. That's what you get." Rodney takes it all in stride by insulting Mike in his final confessional.
But enough about that. Rodney's gone and Carolyn stays. I think Mike took a chance and he might have earned a vote or two by pulling this off. People may see it is allowing the best person to step up and earn their spot. They could also watch Carolyn and Rodney struggle at making a fire for an hour and decide that even the winner of the challenge doesn't deserve to win the game. Jeff gives the final speech, congratulates the final three, and they head back to camp for a peaceful night sleep and a delicious breakfast in the morning!
Day 39 dawns on 'Merica and the final three are enjoying the morning. Nothing but love at camp today and Will is so excited for the final tribal. He wants to make being away from his family for all this time worth it. He tells us that he played the only game he could play and that his moves might not be as big as you want, but they were his moves. As they collect their final three breakfast items, Carolyn tells us how happy she is to have made it to the end. She says this season was full of gamers and to get through them all, she had to have a plan B, plan C, etc. She is preparing her arguments for the jury to show them the game she played and the moves she made to get her where she is.
Mike tells us how alone he has been for such a long time in this game. After what he got through to get here, he feels pretty confident that he can meet any challenge. He tells us that there are a lot of people that don't like him, so he's expecting a close vote. I'm just wondering if taking Carolyn over Rodney isn't going to come back and bite him the way it did Colby, all those years ago.
And right to Tribal Council we go. Jeff congratulates the players and then turns it over to the jury. No opening statements, no nothing. Just straight to the jury questions. We start with Joe. He congratulates them and tells them he has an open vote tonight. He tells them they have to earn his vote. He tells Will to man up and own his game. He tells Carolyn that she didn't build strong relationships, so she needs to show them how to she outplayed. He tells Mike that he is really impressed with the five necklaces, but what else did you do? He wants them to earn it tonight.
