Happy Survivor Wednesday! It’s been a complete mess on my end, so let’s get right into it! Read about last week’s DOOZY of an episode here.
Too Long Didn’t Watch
Nick is very upset about being blindsided by Christian and Gabby the previous night. He says they are so smart that they’re dumb. He confronts Christian, saying he regrets that he, Davie and Carl used all of their advantages to save Christian earlier in the game. The Mason-Dixon alliance is officially DEAD!
The Loved Ones Reward
There’s never anything unique about these visits. Everyone cries; there’s lots of touching moments; and it’s cool to see the family members talk about the remaining Survivors. They are divided by pairs, and Angelina ends up winning her FIRST reward of the season. She and Nick choose Davie to join them in the BBQ reward. They end up choosing Mike as well. While on the reward, everyone is really feeling the final 4 vibes except for Davie who has reservations. He thinks he would be out 4th if he goes with Angelina, Nick and Mike.
Back at camp, Gabby is now having concerns about Christian’s threat status. She pulls Alison and Kara aside and lets them know she wants to get rid of her perception as Christian’s side-kick by blindsiding him. This is music to Kara’s ears who says she’s been wanting him out forever now!
The Immunity Challenge
Yet another unique challenge involving balance, control and endurance all at once. Mike and Gabby leave in the first round. Alison and Angelina leave in the next. Everyone is giving Nick advice during the challenge while secretly rooting against Christian. Kara maintains her fierce pose throughout the entire challenge and wins! Alison is cautiously optimistic about blindsiding Christian and fears him pulling out another advantage.
Gabby And Christian Pay For Booting The Godfather?
Gabby is foaming at the mouth at potentially getting rid of her biggest ally, Christian. She talks to him and convinces him that the target is still going to be Alison. Naturally, she cries about it, but gives us some straight up common sense: Christian doesn’t want her to win; he wants himself to win. I’m proud of her. She goes to the other Davids and lets them know the plan to take him out. Nick is utterly shocked. He’s still pissed that he saved Christian multiple times but was betrayed.
When Mike and Angelina are brought up to speed, they immediately worry about an idol. Since they don’t trust her long term, they decide to vote Gabby as backup. Nick literally CACKLES at the thought of Gabby being booted due to Christian’s idol, and so do I. Davie agrees to the plan, but in a confessional is thinking it’s better to keep Christian as a shield. Christian tells Davie once he’s gone, he’ll be the next target. Davie is smart. Voting out all the threats is why Alec was booted. Davie lets Christian know that the entire tribe is basically against him.
Christian decides it’s time for damage control with Nick. Better late than never? During the conversation, Nick is not having it. He indulges Christian by lying about his desire to vote out Alison. Christian totally deserves the entire tribe turning against him at this point. Him voting out Carl at the previous vote didn’t gain him any loyalty from Kara/Alison yet it turned his own allies against him… even the one person he thought would never turn against him. Bad gameplay, Christian.
Alec and The Godfather walk in as jurors looking pissed. Nick explains that Christian and Gabby’s “big move” against Carl was a big move, but it was a stupid move. All big moves aren’t good moves. I agree. Nick lies and says he’s rebuilt his relationship with Christian. Gabby announces from now on she is reasserting herself and standing on her own two feet. Alison is still worried about leaving tonight as she still feels she’s a threat and without many allies. We get to the vote. Christian is not going home. He would be an idiot to not play his idol. Jeff tallies the votes… Christian stops Jeff, and looks at everyone in the eyes before playing his idol! 5 votes are nullified. 1 vote for Alison. 1 Vote Gabby… and Gabby is voted in a 2-1 vote. Angelina and Mike are so pleased with themselves I can’t help but laugh out loud!
We didn’t get into it last episode in the comment section, but I’m so happy with Christian and Gabby paying for their idiotic gameplay in the previous episode. Gabby leaving especially is delicious irony! What did you think about this episode? How do you feel about Gabby finally showing how strong of a player she is in the episode where she is booted?
