This is the 10th episode of Survivor: Japan - Civil War

Previously On Survivor...

After tribal council, Donna was furious that somebody had flipped on the Kamakura alliance. She soon found out that it was Emma, and was frustrated to realize that if she voted her out next, her alliance would be at a disadvantage in numbers.

At the reward, Chuck became nervous about Hannah's social game. He, Kyle, and Reyna looked around the reward area for a clue to the hidden immunity idol played the night before, but found none, and arrived at the conclusion that the idol was never re-hidden.

Back at camp, Landon offered Emma a spot in the final four, revealing that he did not intend to systematically pick off the remaining Kamakura alliance. He also revealed his plans to vote out Donna to put a new daimyo in power, just to vote him/her off soon afterward. Meanwhile, Shannon and Phoebe discussed the possibility of voting out "one of their own" next, due to their perception of the remaining Kamakura alliance members being too one-dimensional.

The next day, Donna and Chuck agreed that Hannah, Emma, Landon, and Bryce had to be the next four to go. Donna wanted to get rid of Landon first, since she thought he was likely the brains of the Ashikaga alliance. However, she also feared that he had an idol, and suggested splitting the votes between Bryce and Landon. Chuck was still leaning toward voting for Hannah, however.

Meanwhile, Landon reassured Kyle that he intended to go to the end with him and Hannah.

After Emma won immunity, the Ashikaga alliance, plus Emma, appeared to have decided on Donna as their next victim. However, Phoebe, deeming Donna's game to be all strategy and not enough of anything else, decided to turn on Hannah due to her status as a dark horse, and convinced Shannon and Bryce to vote along with her. Bryce alerted the Kamakura alliance to Landon's plans to vote out Donna, but assured them that he, Phoebe, and Shannon were targeting Hannah. After lying to Bryce about agreeing to vote her out, Donna assigned Chuck, Patrick, and Reyna to vote for Landon while she split a vote between him and Hannah in case he had an idol. If he did not have an idol, then all would vote for Landon in the revote. However, going into tribal council, Chuck was still torn between Landon and Hannah.

At tribal council, Kyle openly stated that he did not trust Bryce, and Chuck stuck to his own agenda, blindsiding Hannah in a 5-4-3 vote. Ten are left. Who will be voted out next?


Reward Challenge: The castaways will be divided into two teams. Facing off one against one in a fenced off circle, a castaway from each team would hold a wooden idol on top of a platform that they would hold in one hand. They would use the other free hand to attempt to knock their opponent's idol off the platform. The castaway whose idol hit the ground last would score one point for their team.

Reward: A feast at a small village, where the winning team will also help deliver school supplies, clothes, and toys.

Immunity Challenge: One at a time, the castaways must complete an obstacle course (a floating bridge, stepping stones, and balance beam in that order) to retrieve a flag and return to the starting point with it while the others attempt to knock them off the course with canvas bags. If the castaway is knocked off the course, they are automatically eliminated. The castaway who completes the course and returns with the flag in the fastest time wins immunity.


Night 24


When the remaining castaways return to camp, Kyle is quick to confront Bryce.

Kyle: I thought the plan was to vote out Donna. Why didn't you let me know you had changed your mind?

Bryce: It didn't occur to me. And you said it yourself; you don't trust me, so why would I tell you anything? You'd just call BS on it, anyway.

I wanted to keep the Ashikaga alliance together, but apparently not everyone's on board with that. Needless to say, I feel pretty betrayed right now, even though I'm not the one who just got voted off.


Bryce: I keep tellin' you, man, this is an individual game. Especially now that we made the merge, former tribes don't mean nothin'.

Kyle: I get that this is an individual game. But a Survivor jury won't respect you if you keep flipping like this.

Bryce: I'm on my own side, and that's the only one I need.

I really wish Kyle would stop tellin' me how to play this game. I'm just playin' it my way, and it ain't my problem if he don't like it.


Meanwhile, Donna is furious that a vote was flipped from Landon to Hannah.

Donna: Which one of you switched your vote?! We were supposed to force a tie, then vote out Landon in the re-vote! That was the plan, and I made that perfectly clear.

Chuck: I did.

Donna: Why would you do that without warning anyone? Why would you do it at all? Landon's clearly a bigger threat than Hannah!

Chuck: I disagree. I think Hannah was more social, so she'd be harder to beat at the final tribal council.

Donna: Let me make one thing clear; if you go against the plan again, you'll be sitting on the jury bench on day 39. I can promise you that you won't reach the end.

I'm absolutely furious right now. Chuck doesn't cooperate with my plans, so it's clear that I can't trust him. As soon as Landon's out of the picture, he's next to go. You don't interfere with my plans and still make it to the end with me.


Observing the argument from inside the shelter, Landon smirks.

It would appear that the Kamakura alliance isn't very harmonious. Chuck has his own agenda while Donna wants to keep all of her allies in line. It shouldn't be too hard pitting them against each other. The question is: Which side should I take?


Day 25

Reward Challenge

Jeff Probst: Come on in, guys!

The remaining ten castaways enter the beach challenge area. Jeff greets them and explains the fairly straightforward challenge. Like with the previous challenge, Chuck and Donna are singled out as team captains, and are made to rock-paper-scissors over who gets the first pick, with the fist match resulting in both captains chosing scissors. In the second, they both choose paper, in the third, Chuck picks rock while Donna picks scissors. The teams are as follows in order of where they were picked.

Team Chuck: Chuck, Bryce, Emma, Patrick, Reyna

Team Donna: Donna, Landon, Shannon, Phoebe, Kyle

Round 1: Reyna vs. Kyle

Remembering a trick from the same challenge on Survivor: Philippines, Kyle throws his idol up in the air and dives at Reyna's knocking it to the ground seconds before his falls.

Team Chuck: 0. Team Donna: 1.

Round 2: Bryce vs. Shannon

Bryce plays aggressively, constantly swatting his hand at Shannon's idol. For a short while, Shannon is able to keep her idol off the ground, but it soon gets knocked off before she even gets the chance to knock off Bryce's idol.

Team Chuck: 1. Team Donna: 1.

Round 3: Patrick vs. Donna

Patrick and Donna take a few seconds to size each other up before both lunging. They both knock each other's idols free, but Patrick's hits the ground a split second before Donna's.

Team Chuck: 1. Team Donna: 2.

Round 4: Emma vs. Landon

After taking sizing each other up, Emma and Landon both tentatively approach each other, taking a much more cautious and calculated approach than the others. Landon is able to dodge Emma's first swat, and Emma bats Landon's hand away when he first attempts to knock down her idol. Soon, Emma launches a quick series of swats at Landon's idol, which backs him up against the wooden fencing, but doesn't win the round. Landon fights back, soon bringing the action back to the center of the ring. However, Emma suddenly throws her idol up in the air and knocks down Landon's.

Team Chuck: 2. Team Donna: 2.

Round 5: Chuck vs. Phoebe

Phoebe attempts the trick done by Emma and Kyle, but it fails as Chuck easily gets out of the way. Phoebe's idol hits the ground while Chuck's is still standing.

Jeff Probst: Team Chuck wins reward!

Naturally, Team Chuck celebrates while Team Donna does not, though Landon and Kyle both congratulate the winning team for the sake of sportsmanship. Jeff points the winning team to a couple of trucks, which will transport them and the school supplies, toys, etc. to the village. He then sends Team Donna back to camp.


Team Chuck arrives at the small village, where they are quickly swarmed by eager children. A group of young boys quickly pull Bryce and Patrick into a game of baseball, while the others deliver supplies to a nearby school. Chuck, who has intermediate knowledge of Japanese, proves to be very popular with the kids as he tells them stories about sailing and fishing.

I never stayed in a relationship with a woman long enough to become a father. For these kids to look up to me like this is definitely new, and I really enjoy it.


Emma and Reyna find themselves playing with another group of children after all the supplies have been delivered. When she notices Reyna repeatedly glancing over at Bryce, Emma jokingly teases her about it, much to the amusement of the children. Bryce seems to take notice of this, then goes back to his game.

So I was just spendin' some time with the kids, basically what I do every day back at home, and I noticed that Reyna kept glancin' at me. *smiles* She's kinda foxy, so ain't complainin'.


After a while, Bryce starts giving some life advice to the kids while Patrick looks on with a smile.

We're all having fun out here, but out of all of us, I think Bryce is having the most. He seems like a genuinely good guy who's amazing with kids. He seems smarter than I originally thought, too.


Spending time with these children has made me realize that I don't do this kind of thing as much as I should. As a high school student, I only did the minimum amount of community service needed, and hardly did any since then. I need to look beyond myself more. Even if I don't win this game, I'll at least come away as a changed person.



Team Donna returns to camp, naturally wishing they had won the reward.

Kyle: Why don't we just have our own little party? Double rice servings, anyone?

Shannon: Sure, why not?

We missed out on charity work and a feast, so I guess the best reward we can give ourselves is more rice than we usually eat in a day out here. Besides, I'd like to take a breather from all the strategy. I'm surprised it hadn't driven Landon, among other people, insane yet.


While Kyle prepares extra rice, with Shannon and Phoebe helping, Landon approaches Donna.

Landon: So...I'm guessing Chuck has his own agenda?

Donna: It would appear so.

Landon: Where does he stand in your alliance?

Donna: I'm not sure.

Landon: Would you consider getting rid of him in the near future?

Donna: Maybe.

Landon: What if we got rid of Bryce first? Bryce is more athletic, and he's unpredictable. He's just as likely to flip back over to the Ashikaga alliance as he is to stick around with yours. Chuck's essentially a free agent now, and I don't think he'll want to play second fiddle to anybody.

Donna: I'll consider that.

Landon: Alright, that'll do for now.

I'm offering Bryce to Donna as a sacrificial lamb to gain her trust before we get rid of Chuck. Chuck looks like he could end up playing a very similar game to Bryce's in the near future, so it'd be dangerous to keep him around much longer. Once the two of them are gone, I'll turn on Donna, and then there won't be much more competition.


Landon's clearly trying to turn me against Chuck. His offer to get rid of Bryce, then Chuck, sounds very tempting. I'll give him that. But he's still a bigger strategic threat than both of them, and that's why he's got to go next. It's too late for him to save himself.


While they're enjoying their rice, Kyle questions Phoebe and Shannon on why they flipped.

Kyle: So what was last night all about? Why did you not go with the plan?

Phoebe: We thought Donna was too one-dimensional as a player. Her game's all strategy. She's not a social threat, and she's not a physical threat. So we thought we could wait until later to get rid of her.

Kyle: You two and Bryce vote for Landon?

Shannon: Hannah, actually. She's more social than Landon is. But it looks like Donna wanted to split the votes to flush out an idol.

Kyle: What idol? We don't have one. For all we know, John might have found it and taken it with him when he get pulled from the game.

Phoebe: Yeah, I think that's what it is.

How has Kyle not figured out yet that Shannon and I have the idol? He'll be in for a rude surprise somewhere down the road, because we have nothing to gain by showing it to him. We tried to gain something by showing it to Dave, and it didn't work. So from now on, we'll just have to hope that Chuck doesn't tell anyone that we have it, because I'm sure Dave told him before he got sent to the jury.


Kyle: So I'm guessing you don't intend to vote out Donna any time soon?

Phoebe: Actually, I think we should now before we get too hung up on other targets and allow her to gain too much power. The smaller the tribe gets, the more powerful the daimyo becomes. So we're coming back over to the dark side.

Shannon: I agree.

Kyle: So we've got our target?

Shannon: We've got our target.

After last night's tribal council, part of me just wants to say "(bleep) former tribes", like several other people already have, but now I'm not entirely sure. Phoebe and Shannon will be good for my numbers game, and they'll both be easy boots when I need them. I figure that once the big threats are gone, Landon and I can just pick a couple of potential goats and wipe out the rest of 'em without too much trouble.


Day 26


In the morning, Landon wakes up and notices Bryce and Reyna flirting with each other while cooking some rice for breakfast.

Landon: Hey guys...You're going to ruin the rice if you don't pay more attention to it.

Reyna: Huh? Oh...Well would you look at that! The rice looks overcooked. Well, breakfast is served, I guess.

Reyna laughs nervously, then quickly turns back to Bryce.

Reyna: Do you have a girlfriend back in Houston?

Bryce: Nah. Haven't dated in a while. Haven't found "the one" yet, y'know?

Reyna's acting like a teenage girl with a crush all of the sudden. Either she really likes Bryce, or she's just a damn good actor and is trying to get him on her side. Either way, she instantly became a bigger threat than I thought. Pairs are dangerous.


Later in the day, Kyle and Chuck go fishing. Kyle is quick to bring up strategy.

Kyle: How do you feel about possibly becoming the daimyo?

Chuck: I think it'd be nice. Why? You want to get rid of Donna?

Kyle: Donna's got to go. She's a strategic threat, and right now, she's in a position where she could very easily get to the end, and probably win a landslide vote when it's all said and done.

Chuck: You think so?

Kyle: I know so. Besides, she doesn't trust you, and she may want to get rid of you're so much better than her at challenges.

Kyle's clearly only making this offer to save his own ass, but he raises some valid points. Besides, who doesn't want to be able to vote twice at tribal?


Chuck: Just let me sleep on that one. I'm not saying no just yet.

Kyle: Alright. Take all the time you need.

I plan on sticking with Landon to the end, but I need to make some of the moves in the alliance so that the jury doesn't think I've been riding his coattails. Besides, where's the fun in letting one guy do all the work in the strategy game?


Meanwhile, Patrick goes around asking people about who they want gone next.

Patrick: Hey Emma, who do you want gone next?

Emma: Donna. No question. Why?

Patrick: Just curious.

I told Patrick the first name that came to mind when he asked me who I want gone. I don't think he's on my side strategically, so I can't give him my real plans. Of course, I might vote for Donna next, but I have to keep my options open for right now.


Patrick: Hey Bryce, Reyna, who do you two want out next?

Bryce: We dunno, man.

Reyna: Yeah, we'll worry about that after the next immunity challenge.

I want to know who everyone's thinking about voting for because I don't really want to be in an alliance anymore. I don't think I need to be in one. I think I can just stay a wild card, and people won't want to get rid of me because they'll need my vote. So as long as I'm useful to people, I should be out of people's crosshairs.


Patrick: Hey Donna, who do you want to vote out next?

Donna: It needs to be Landon. He's too much of a threat. Chuck will be next, since he's a physical threat and untrustworthy.

Patrick: Alright, that sounds good.

There will be an odd number of votes tonight, so it'd be a good time to flip if I deemed it necessary. But Donna's right about Landon, so I may stick with her, if only this time.


Day 27

Immunity Challenge

Jeff Probst: Come on in, guys!

The remaining castaways enter the beach challenge area.

Jeff Probst: Welcome to today's immunity challenge. First things first. Emma, I will take back the immunity necklace.

Jeff takes back the immunity necklace, declaring it back up for grabs. He then explains the rules of the immunity challenge. The castaways end up running the course in alphabetical order, with Bryce, Emma, and Patrick being the only ones who make it to the flag and back. Of the three, Patrick is the slowest to finish, as his constant stopping to evaluate the pattern of the canvas bags the other castaways are using to knock him off the course cost him precious seconds. Emma loses a lot of time when she nearly falls off the balance beam on the way back, but does extremely well on the rest of the course. Bryce flies through it, easily winning the challenge. He officially wins the challenge when his canvas bag knocks Shannon into the water.

Jeff Probst: Bryce wins immunity!

The rest of the castaways look stunned that Bryce won the challenge so easily, while Bryce celebrates his victory. As Jeff puts the immunity necklace around Bryce's neck, he reminds him that he has a one in nine shot at winning the million dollars. He tells the castaways that they have tribal council that night before sending them back to camp.


Upon arriving at camp, the castaways congratulate Bryce on his immunity win, which Bryce appreciates.

Man, it feels good to have this immunity necklace. I feel like I've been on people's radars for a while, so I have to win as many of these as possible if I want to get to the end.


Kyle and Landon go to the well to discuss strategy.

Landon: Yesterday, I made an offer to Donna. I offered to help vote out Bryce, and then Chuck, to gain her trust, but I'd only help vote out Bryce and vote out Donna instead of Chuck.

Kyle: So you wanted to use Bryce as a sacrificial lamb?

Landon: Exactly. But we can't do that now, since he just won immunity. We can still vote out Chuck or Donna. One's a physical threat with little, if any, strategic aptitude, and the other's a strategic threat who's mediocre at challenges.

Landon and I have narrowed our options for tonight down to two people. It's just a question of who's more dangerous to keep around. We're not sure who that is yet.


Kyle: I've talked to Chuck about possibly making him the daimyo.

Landon: You talking about usurping Donna?

Kyle: Yeah.

Landon: You want to go ahead with this?

Kyle: I'm not sure yet. Our opportunities to get rid of Chuck will probably be limited since he's a physical threat. We can get rid of Donna whenever we want if we have the numbers. The problem is, Donna's a strategic powerhouse.

Landon: Let's just see what we can figure out concerning everyone else's plans. I'm sure everyone else is targeting either one of them or me.

Kyle: Alright.

I told Chuck that I could make him a daimyo, and considering how he seems to be falling out of favor with Donna, now would be a good time to do it. The problem is, I'm not positive that it's the best move I can make at this point in the game.


On opposite sides of the campsite, in hushed tones, Reyna and Phoebe have a similar discussion to Kyle and Landon's with Bryce and Shannon, respectively.

Bryce: Man, I want Chuck gone. He's my biggest threat in challenges, and the less competition I have, the easier I'll be able to make it to the end. I'mma need this thing around my neck as often as possible if I want to make it to the end.

Reyna: I agree. He's a physical threat and I don't trust him. I can't trust him after he changed his vote to Hannah without consulting anyone.

Bryce: You're right, he's a loose cannon.

Bryce and I now have an alliance. I want to get him to the end not only because I like the him, but because he's exactly what he says Chuck is; a loose cannon. Nobody else really trusts him, and he'll have betrayed a lot of people when it's all said and done. That makes him a good goat. I'll have a better chance of winning if I'm next to him at the final three.


Phoebe: So are you thinking Donna?

Shannon: She's a big strategic threat, so the sooner we get rid of her, the better.

There isn't anybody left except Landon who's like Donna strategically. We just voted out Hannah, so now we need to get rid of somebody from Kamakura. The only real threat left on that tribe is Chuck, who's a force in challenges, but he gets stiff competition from Bryce. I think that makes it pretty clear that now's the time to get rid of Donna.


Meanwhile, by the well, Chuck asks Patrick and Donna about his plan for the vote.

Chuck: So who's next?

Patrick: Landon. It has to be Landon.

Donna: Landon's the biggest threat left from the original Ashikaga tribe.

Chuck: I'm still pissed about that ruse at tribal council several nights back, so I'm with you.

Donna: Excellent. I'll give Reyna and Bryce the message.

I said that I'm on board with Donna's plan to get rid of Landon, but I'm not totally sure. On one hand, he's a threat. I think he told Kyle to basically tell me, "I can give you power", which sounded pretty shady to begin with, so make Kyle look like the snake. But the power that comes with being a daimyo sounds pretty enticing. Besides, I don't like Donna and she's also a threat. I probably won't make up my mind until I get to the voting booth. I don't know what to do right now.


At sunset, the castaways collect their torches and head out to tribal council.

Tribal Council

The castaways arrive at tribal council, greeted by Jeff, and sit down.

Jeff Probst: We now bring in the members of our jury. Dave. Hannah, voted out at the last tribal council.

As she enters the tribal council area, Hannah gives Shannon, the nearest of the Ashikaga alliance members who flipped, a cold, knowing stare.

Jeff Probst: Kyle, what went wrong with the Ashikaga alliance the other night?

Kyle: Well Jeff, I guess some of us just aren't team players.

His eyes linger on Bryce, who does not respond.

Jeff Probst: Bryce, Kyle just tried to subtly call you out on what happened last night. How does that make you feel?

Bryce: Honestly Jeff, I think that I'm a bit misunderstood out here. I came out here to play a game, and an individual one at that. I'm playin' the game, and for some reason he thinks I'm the bad guy.

Kyle: I never said you were the bad guy. I just think that you made a stupid decision the other night, putting the old Ashikaga in a bad numbers position.

Bryce: You just don't get it, do you? This is a-

Kyle: I understand that. I-

Bryce: Hey, I was talkin'! You don't interrupt me when I'm talkin'!

Kyle: You've said it a million times before.

Bryce: AND YOU STILL DON'T GET IT! No matter how many times I explain it, you just can't wrap your head around it! This ain't freakin' football. This is-

Kyle: Of course I (bleep)ing get it! And I'm trying to tell you that the way you're playing this game isn't honorable!

Bryce: I'm not here to play by your rules, Kyle. I'm here to play by Survivor rules.

The two men stare each other down, and the tribal council area briefly descends into a state of shocked silence. After a minute, Jeff continues grilling the castaways.

Jeff Probst: Donna, what's your take on the disharmony among the remaining members of the original Ashikaga tribe?

Chuck: I didn't know it was this bad. I think it's just a matter of clashing viewpoints. When people have fundamental disagreements such as this one, they tend not to get along. But it works in my favor, so I'm not complaining. Ashikaga is a house divided against itself, so it can't stand.

Landon: Neither can Kamakura, then. I know you and Donna have your own agendas, and you don't fit into her long-term plans.

Donna: He's lying, Chuck. He's done this before, remember?

Chuck does not say anything.

Jeff Probst: Landon, do you feel threatened tonight?

Landon: Absolutely, Jeff. I'm on the wrong side of the numbers, and I'm considered to be a threat. The three votes I got last night make that very clear. And Bryce has immunity, so if I'm still in the game after this, I'll be shocked.

The tribal council is silent for a minute.

Jeff Probst: Alright. It is time to vote. Shannon, you're up.

One by one, the castaways go up to the voting urn.

Chuck, man, my vote's for you because you're my biggest threat in challenges. I need to win as many challenges as possible if I want to get further in the game.

–Bryce (voting for Chuck)

You're a snake, you're good at challenges, and you're on the wrong side of the numbers. Good luck to you.

–Donna (voting for Landon)

Jeff Probst: I'll go tally the votes.

Jeff leaves, returning a few minutes later with the voting urn.

Jeff Probst: If anybody has a hidden immunity idol and would like to play it, now would be the time to do so.

Nobody steps up to play a hidden immunity idol.

Jeff Probst: Once the votes are read, the decision is final. The person voted out will be asked to leave the tribal council area immediately. I'll read the votes.

First vote: Landon.

...Landon. Two votes Landon.

Landon nods, appearing almost resigned to his fate.

Jeff Probst: ...Chuck. Two votes Landon, one vote Chuck.

...Donna. Two votes Landon, one vote Donna, one vote Chuck.

...Donna. We are tied. Two votes Donna, two votes Landon, one vote Chuck.

...Landon. Three votes Landon, two votes Donna, one vote Chuck.

...Donna. We are tied again. Three votes Donna, three votes Landon, one vote Chuck.

...Chuck. Three votes Donna, three votes Landon, two votes Chuck.

...Donna. Four votes Donna, three votes Landon, two votes Chuck.

...tenth person voted out, and the third member of our jury: Donna. That's five. That's enough. Please bring me your torch.

Landon lets out a loud sigh of relief while Hannah looks visibly pleased at the outcome of the vote. Donna, stunned, grabs her torch and walks over to Jeff.

Jeff Probst: Donna, the tribe has spoken.

Jeff snuffs Donna's torch, officially eliminating her from the game.

Jeff Probst: It is time for you to go.

Donna walks part of the way out of the tribal council area, but stops somewhere along the path to stare icily at Landon and Chuck, the latter of whom she suspects betrayed her. She then disappears into the forest.

Jeff Probst: And thus the pattern of betrayal and unpredictable votes continues. You would all be wise to figure out just who you can trust. Grab your stuff. Head back to camp. Good night.

The remaining nine castaways pick up their torches and depart for their camp.

Voting Confessionals

Chuck, man, my vote's for you because you're my biggest threat in challenges. I need to win as many challenges as possible if I want to get further in the game.

–Bryce (voting for Chuck)

I never liked you, and I want to be the one running the show. You'll win if I don't get rid of you soon.

–Chuck (voting for Donna)

You should be nervous right now. This ought to bring you back down to earth.

–Emma (voting for Donna)

You're a snake, you're good at challenges, and you're on the wrong side of the numbers. Good luck to you.

–Donna (voting for Landon)

I really hope that Chuck decided to take me up on my offer. Otherwise I may not be in this game much longer.

–Kyle (voting for Donna)

I haven't been this nervous in a long time. I think it's gonna be me, but I hope that I'm wrong.

–Landon (voting for Donna)

You're the biggest threat from Ashikaga. Your time's up.

–Patrick (voting for Landon)

There's only room for one queen bee here. And from now on, that queen bee will be me.

–Phoebe (voting for Donna)

Just trying to help my goat get to the end. You'll get in the way, so I have to let you go.

–Reyna (voting for Chuck)

You've played a pretty good game so far, but I need to bring it to an end now or else you'll become too much of a threat.

–Shannon (voting for Donna)

Final Words

I thought I had control of the game, but obviously I was wrong. Overall, I think I played well, but probably got a little overconfident toward the end. I lost sight of the fact that I was still vulnerable to the vote, and I put my trust in some untrustworthy people. But this has been an amazing experience. I hope I get a do-over in a future season.
