We’ve had some big moments at Tribal Council over 28 seasons of Survivor, but tonight’s episode of Survivor: Cagayan may have set a record for amount of big moments happening in a row. My full recap will be up at midnight, but you can keep reading to sound off on what happened. [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Wednesday's episode of Survivor: Cagayan.]
You’re forgiven for being dizzy if you head is still spinning from the events at tonight’s Tribal Council. First, Tony announced to everyone that he had a hidden immunity idol (which ended up being a terrible move because the Aparri gang was all planning to vote for him and therefore their votes would have been blocked). Then Tony gave his idol away to LJ (another bad move because now Aparri had voted for Jefra). Then, LJ announced he also had an idol and he gave his idol to Tony (an inexplicable move since the Aparri votes had already clearly moved off of him). The former Solana folks appeared ready to go down in a burst of incompetent flames, but then came the biggest shocker of all, as Kass flipped and joined them to vote out Sarah, who, it should be noted, had insisted her alliance-members vote for Tony or LJ because neither of them had idols. WHOOPS!
Why would Kass flip away from an alliance in which she appeared to be in a position of power — even if it meant ceding that power for one vote to secure Sarah and the numbers advantage? — to join a side in which it has to be assumed that she would start out on the very bottom? That is the question of the hour, and the answer would seem to be, that is simply how much she hated Sarah.
Do you think Kass made the right or wrong move? And where does this Tribal Council rank on the ol’ insane-o-meter? My full recap will be up later buy you cam hit the message boards right here and right now. And for more Survivor scoop, follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss.
