Previously On Survivor...

After returning from tribal council, Kyle reiterated to Chuck that for helping to vote out Donna, he would become the new daimyo, instructing him not to tell anybody of their deal. Noticing this, Phoebe and Shannon admitted to each other that they no longer trusted Kyle.

The next morning, Reyna made a final three offer to Emma, who said that she would consider it. In a confessional, Emma revealed that she did not necessarily intend to take Landon and Kyle to the final three, stating that she would keep her options open. At the auction, she bought a note to be read at tribal council, invoking the paranoia of her tribemates.

After the auction, Chuck offered a final three deal with Phoebe and Shannon, which the two women accepted. Unbeknownst to Chuck, Landon and Emma conspired to get rid of him if Bryce won immunity again. When Kyle expressed reluctance about the plan, Emma grew suspicious.

The next day, as Bryce and Reyna were discussing alliance options, Patrick offered them a final three deal, which they readily accepted. The new alliance that they would play a mercenary game from that point onward, voting for whichever target they deemed to be the biggest threat as long as it wasn't any of them. In a confessional, Bryce stated his intention to get rid of Chuck, Landon, and Emma, in no particular order.

At the immunity challenge, Bryce narrowly beat out Patrick for immunity, once again thwarting a plot to get rid of him. Landon's alliance remained divided on whether to vote out the physical Chuck or the strategic Phoebe, with Kyle reasoning that as long as Chuck was still in the game, Bryce would have a slimmer chance of winning immunity. Emma approached Bryce and Reyna about the plan to vote out Chuck, with the two of them agreeing to cooperate.

Unsure of whether or not to trust Emma, Bryce spoke with Chuck's new alliance about the prospect of voting out Emma. When Phoebe revealed that they were already planning to vote out Emma, Bryce grew suspicious, and remained undecided on who he wanted to vote for. Chuck then pitched the plan to get rid of Emma to Landon, who did not immediately agree to cooperate, and said that Phoebe was his intended target. Finally, at the last minute, Landon offered to make either Bryce or Reyna the daimyo if they helped to vote out Chuck. Reyna accepted without consulting Bryce.

At tribal council, Patrick confirmed that the game was no longer based on past tribal allegiances, openly revealing everyone's alliances. Emma read her note, which gave her the power to send one tribemate back to camp, effectively making them immune and preventing them from voting. She chose to send Kyle back, to his chagrin. In the end, Landon got his wish and Chuck was blindsided in a 5-4 vote. Eight are left. Who will be voted out next?


Reward/Immunity Challenge: The castaways will each fire an arrow at a target on the ground several meters away. The person who shoots his/her arrow closest to the center wins reward and immunity.

Reward: Depending on where the castaway finishes in the challenge, he/she will win food ranging from lobster and champagne to rice and boiled water from camp.

Immunity Challenge: Each of the castaways will fill out a questionnaire about the tribe in private before the challenge. The questions will be posed to the group and the castaways will guess whose name was written most often. Each time a castaway guesses the correct answer, they will get one chop at a rope assigned to another castaway. After three chops, the rope will be released, smashing an idol, removing that castaway from the challenge. The last castaway whose idol is not smashed wins.


Night 30


Kyle greets the rest of his remaining tribemates when they return from tribal council. He is not surprised to see that Chuck is no longer among them.

Kyle: Yup. Just as I thought.

Reyna: You're probably the only one who saw this coming, Kyle.

Shannon: Yeah, he probably is. I still can't believe what happened.

Tonight's tribal council was definitely a shocker. I figured that since Bryce had won immunity again, we'd have the numbers to get rid of Emma. Besides, Bryce had said he wanted Emma gone. But apparently he changed his mind, and now here we are, minus Chuck.


Kyle is quick to approach Emma.

Kyle: Why'd you send me back to camp before the vote? Were they targeting me?

Emma: You didn't seem to be on board with the plan to get rid of Chuck, so I began to question whether or not I could trust you. I was afraid you'd mess up the plan.

Kyle: Whoa, whoa, wait a minute. You trusted Bryce to vote for Chuck but not me?

Emma: Chuck's a threat to him in challenges, and Bryce knows that he needs to keep immunity to keep getting further in the game. You seem more concerned with taking out the strategic threats.

Kyle: Yeah, I'm more concerned with the strategic threats, but I was going to vote for Chuck.

Emma: You could have told me that. It's not my problem that you didn't.

It's kind of insulting how Emma trusted Bryce - Yes, effing Bryce - more than she trusted me. Last time I checked, we were in the same alliance. Then again, she may be smart enough now to know that she's just a goat for me and Landon to drag to the end. But now I'm not entirely positive whose side she's really on. She'll flip at the drop of a hat, so after Bryce and Phoebe are gone, we may have to vote her out next.


Kyle's usually a nice guy, but that doesn't always translate in the game. He seems to have a distinct "my way or the highway" mentality, and that rubs me the wrong way. I wonder how Landon would feel about getting rid of him. Most of the people on the jury and still in the game like Kyle despite his narrow-mindedness about voting options, so he's a definite jury threat. If he's smart, he'll help me get rid of him sometime in the near future.


Day 31

Reward/Immunity Challenge

Jeff Probst: Come on in, guys!

The remaining eight castaways enter the forested challenge area. Jeff explains to them the rules of the challenge, as well as what's at stake. All of the castaways seem thrilled, especially since all of them get food regardless of where they finish.

Shannon steps up first, with the arrow landing about five meters from the marker at the center. Reyna goes next, with her arrow landing slightly further away from the marker than Shannon's. Next up is Patrick, who misses the marker by six and a half meters. Emma's shot is errant, landing nine meters away from the marker. Jeff chides the castaways for their ineptitude at the challenge.

However, Landon turned things around quickly with a good shot that lands half a meter away from the marker, putting him in a commanding lead. Next up is Phoebe, whose arrow lands three meters from the target. Kyle's arrow lands inches away from Landon's. Finally, Bryce, knowing that his life in the game most likely depends on how he fares in the challenge, shoots his arrow, and is dismayed to see it land one meter away from the marker.

Jeff Probst: Landon wins immunity!

Landon remains collected as he hears the news, not wanting to come across as overly cocky or a poor sport. The tribe applauds him as he receives the immunity necklace and is reminded about his reward and the fact that he is safe from the next tribal council. Jeff then reminds the other seven that one of them will be going home tomorrow night.


The castaways are given a ride to the reward via chopper. After a short flight, the chopper lands near a restaurant. The castaways all enter, greeted by Jeff. All of them take their seats in order of where they placed in the challenge.

Jeff then unveils everybody's meal, one by one. First, Landon receives lobster with crab cakes and sparkling lemonade in lieu of champagne, due to Landon being underage by American standards. Next is Kyle, who gets a steak with a baked potato and a glass of wine. Bryce is given sushi with cold, bottled water. When Bryce reveals that this is his first time eating sushi, Landon encourages him to try it. Bryce does, and quickly declares that it has received his seal of approval.

Phoebe gets a chicken salad with ranch dressing, while Shannon receives a chicken sandwich. Reyna gets a hot dog, and Patrick gets a cooked fish from camp. Emma, who finished last, is given cold rice, also from camp. Once they all receive their food, the castaways begin to eat, some enjoying the reward much more than others.

Night 31

Night has fallen by the time the castaways return to camp from the reward.

Bryce: Good job winning immunity, Landon. The food was also really nice.

Landon: Yeah, man. You like the sushi? You should try to expand your seafood palette in the future. It's probably better by the coast than in Houston, but still.

Now that Bryce is no longer safe from tribal council, him going home tomorrow night is pretty much a done deal. With him out of the way, I won't have that much competition remaining other than Phoebe.


Bryce makes a makeshift torch and goes out into the woods.

Kyle: Idol hunt?

Bryce: Hey, I'm probably going home next, so I gotta at least try to save myself.

Now that I'm not immune, I have to find that hidden idol if I want to stay in the game. My back's against the wall, so I don't even have the luxury of being subtle about it. But hey, if I don't find it, maybe I can bluff my way out.


Bryce searches for a while, but whether or not he finds the idol is not revealed.

Back at camp, Shannon pulls Phoebe aside.

Shannon: After Bryce is gone, we need to get rid of Landon.

Phoebe: You think so?

Shannon: I know so. He does well in challenges, and he's our biggest strategic threat. If we don't get rid of him, he'll get rid of us.

Landon can't be allowed to get any further in the game after we vote out Bryce. He's clearly the best strategic player out here other than maybe Phoebe, so I have to get rid of him before it's too late.


Phoebe: I'm not entirely sure that it would be the best time to do that.

Shannon: Are you crazy?

Phoebe: Just hear me out. We've got a hidden immunity idol that they don't know about. We can trick him into thinking that we're on his side, then vote him out when he least expects it.

Shannon: But why wait? He needs to go home as soon as possible.

Phoebe: Look, right now Landon's immune and Bryce isn't. Let's just focus on that for now, then we can worry about Landon.

I don't think Shannon really understands my plan. I can't get rid of Landon immediately after Bryce, because he'll be expecting that. I've got to catch him off guard, and to catch him off guard, I have to make him think he's safe. *chuckles* I'm two steps ahead of him and he doesn't even know it.


Day 32


Bryce spends nearly the entire day before tribal council searching for the idol, but to no avail.

Bryce: Well, I guess it never got re-hidden.

I've looked everywhere for the idol, and I just can't seem to find it. But since I've been searchin' pretty much all day, and I've covered practically the entire area, it shouldn't be too hard to bluff.


Bryce picks up a sizeable rock, wraps it in cloth, and puts it in his back pocket.

Bryce: Hope this works.

If this actually works, and as far as I know, it hasn't yet, it'll be very interesting to see who takes the fall.


Bryce runs into Reyna as she's getting water from the well.

Reyna: Where the hell have you been? Everyone's getting worried.

Bryce: I was lookin' for the idol. What do you think I was doing?

Reyna: Did you find it?

Bryce: Nah, but I found a rock that could pass for the idol. I'm hoping to scare the rest of the tribe into not voting for me.

Reyna: Speaking of vote, who do you have in mind?

Bryce: Landon's immune, so our best option is to vote for Emma tonight. If she gets voted out, it'll be down to just me and Landon in challenges.

Reyna: Emma it is. I'll relay the message to Patrick.

Bryce: You do that.

So Bryce's idol hunt was futile, but he's got a decoy in his back pocket. It might work, but it's worth a shot to pitch the idea to blindside Emma to Phoebe and Shannon. Those two are wild cards now that Chuck's gone.


After telling Patrick about the plan, Reyna seeks out Phoebe and Shannon. The discussion is not shown, however. At sunset, the tribe departs for tribal council.

Tribal Council

The castaways enter the tribal council area, greeted by Jeff Probst as usual.

Jeff Probst: We now bring in the members of our jury. Dave. Hannah. Donna. And Chuck, voted out at last night's tribal council.

Chuck gives Bryce a cold look as he enters and takes his seat next to Hannah on the jury bench.

Jeff Probst: Bryce, after yesterday's immunity challenge, do you feel vulnerable?

Bryce: Absolutely, Jeff. I've had a target on my back pretty much since the merge. I've managed to play the role of escape artist a few times, but now it's a very real possibility that my time has run out.

Jeff Probst: Wait, are you resigning to your fate in this game? A game where anything can happen?

Bryce: No sir. That's not at all what I meant. In fact...

Bryce pulls out his fake idol, which is still wrapped in cloth, for everyone to see. The jury looks visibly shocked, as does Emma, the only original Kamakura member remaining who doesn't know about the fake idol trick Bryce used to fool Patton.

Bryce: I'm sure y'all can guess what's in this. I spend the whole day lookin' for it.

Dave (whispering to Donna): They just can't get rid of them, can they?

Jeff Probst: Emma, you look shocked.

Emma: I am, Jeff. I think it's a very real possibility that Bryce is telling the truth. People are doing a better job of keeping their idols under lock and key than usual this season.

Reyna and Patrick exchange smug smirks, while Bryce keeps a straight face, not wanting to give away the fact that he's bluffing.

Jeff Probst: Landon, do you think this will have any effect on tonight's vote?

Landon: I guess we're about to find out.

Jeff Probst: Okay, it is time to vote. Shannon, you're up.

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

If this bluff works and you take the fall, hopefully you won't hold it against me. You're playing this game the way it needs to be played, and I have a ton of respect for you.

–Bryce (voting for Emma)

Jeff Probst: I'll go tally the votes.

Jeff leaves to collect the votes, bringing returning with the urn a few minutes later.

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

The castaways and jurors all hold their breath, expecting Bryce to play his "idol". However, Bryce merely grins after a few tense moments.

Bryce: It's a fake.

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: Emma.

...Second vote: Emma. Two votes Emma.

...Bryce. Two votes Emma, one vote Bryce.

Bryce and Emma merely nod.

Jeff Probst: ...Bryce. We are tied. Two votes Bryce, two votes Emma.

...Bryce. Three votes Bryce, two votes Emma.

...Emma. We are tied again. Three votes Bryce, three votes Emma.

...Emma. Four votes Emma, three votes Bryce.

Chuck (whispering to the rest of the jury): Holy (bleep), it's working!

Jeff Probst: Bryce. We are tied again. Four votes Bryce, four votes Emma, one vote left.

Jeff takes the final vote out of the urn, but waits a minute to reveal it. Everyone finds themselves in the familiar situation of holding their breath in anticipation.

Jeff Probst: Twelfth person voted out, and the fifth member of our jury: Bryce. That's five votes. That's enough. Please bring me your torch.

Bryce: I hoped that would work.

Bryce grabs his torch and brings it to Jeff.

Jeff Probst: Bryce, the tribe has spoken.

Jeff snuffs Bryce's torch, officially eliminating him from the game.

Jeff Probst: It's time for you to go.

Bryce: Good luck, Reyna.

Bryce leaves the tribal council area and disappears into the forest. Chuck looks visibly pleased at the outcome of the vote, since he knows that Bryce turned against him.

Jeff Probst: Well, now that the person who's been on the chopping block for days is now gone, the question is, "where do we go from here?". Grab your stuff. Head back to camp. Good night.

The remaining seven castaways collect their torches and belongings and leave the tribal council area.

Night 32

The remaining seven castaways return to camp, and are dismayed to see that rain has hit the camp, extinguishing their fire.

Kyle: Remember when this happened to us a lot at Ashikaga, Phoebe?

Phoebe: Oh my god, don't remind me.

Tomorrow's really going to suck unless everything dries quicker than usual. I'm just glad that we finally got our biggest threat out of the game.


Kyle is quick to approach Landon about their next course of action.

Kyle: So now what?

Landon: I was thinking Reyna, actually. Once one of us becomes the daimyo, we'll have a numbers advantage, and we can just ride that to the final three, no problem.

Kyle: Sounds good to me. You want to be the daimyo?

Landon: Nah, that title's all yours.

It's the beginning of the end right now. In just one week, me, Kyle, and probably Emma will be getting grilled by the jury. No wait, we'll probably have just been grilled by the jury and the votes will have been cast, most of them with my name. I'm feeling really good about my position in the game right about now.


Day 33

Immunity Challenge

Jeff Probst: Come on in, guys!

The remaining seven castaways enter the forest tribal council area. Jeff takes the immunity necklace back from Landon, declaring it back up for grabs, before explaining the rules of the challenge. After the rules are explained, everyone goes off on their own to fill out the questionnaire. Once the results are tallied, the challenge begins.

Jeff Probst: First question: Which of the remaining castaways do you think would waste a million dollars the fastest?

Everybody but Patrick, and Reyna says Emma. Patrick and Reyna say Kyle. The correct answer is revealed to be Emma. Emma cuts Shannon's first rope, while Kyle and Landon cut Reyna's first two and Phoebe and Shannon cut Landon's first two.

Jeff Probst: Next question: Which of the remaining castaways are you least likely to keep in touch with after the game?

Emma and Reyna both answer Shannon, while Kyle, Landon, and Phoebe answer Patrick and Patrick answers Phoebe. Shannon answers Reyna. The correct answer is revealed to be Reyna. Shannon cuts Landon's last rope, eliminating him from the game.

Jeff Probst: Next question: Which of the remaining castaways do you trust the least?

Kyle, Phoebe, and Shannon all answer Emma, while Patrick and Reyna both say Phoebe and Emma says Kyle, surprising just about everyone. The correct answer is revealed to be Emma, which visibly upsets her. Kyle cuts Shannon's second rope, while Phoebe and Shannon cut Kyle's first two.

Jeff Probst: Next question: Which of the remaining castaways do you least want to see win the million dollars?

Emma and Kyle say Shannon, while Landon and Patrick write each other's names. Phoebe says Reyna, while Shannon and Reyna say Kyle. The correct answer is revealed to be Shannon. Emma cuts Shannon's last rope, eliminating her from the challenge, while Kyle cuts Phoebe's first.

Jeff Probst: Next question: Which of the remaining castaways do you think is the least deserving of being here?

Emma, Kyle, and Patrick say Shannon, much to her chagrin, while Phoebe and Reyna both say Kyle. The correct answer is revealed to be Shannon. Emma and Kyle cut Phoebe's final two ropes, while Patrick cuts Kyle's last, leaving Emma, Patrick, and Reyna as the only competitors remaining.

Jeff Probst: Next question: Which remaining castaway do you think is the most likely to be under the false impression that he/she is smart?

Emma and Reyna both answer Patrick, much to his chagrin, while he answers Phoebe. The correct answer is revealed to be Patrick. Adding injury to insult, Emma and Reyna both cut Patrick’s first two ropes.

Jeff Probst: Next question: Which remaining castaway does the least amount of work around camp?

Emma sheepishly writes her own name down. Patrick and Reyna also write Emma’s name. Emma is revealed to be the correct answer. Patrick and Reyna both cut Emma’s first two ropes while Emma cuts Patrick’s last, leaving Emma and Reyna both at their final ropes.

Jeff Probst: Next question: Which remaining castaway is the hardest to get along with?

Emma writes down Kyle’s name, while Reyna writes down Phoebe’s. The correct answer is revealed to be Kyle, and Emma cuts Reyna’s final rope.

Jeff Probst: Emma wins immunity!

Emma looks pleased with her victory while everyone else appears indifferent. Emma receives the immunity necklace and a reminder from Jeff that she is guaranteed a one in six shot at winning the game, while the others clap halfheartedly. Jeff reminds the other six castaways that one of them is going home tonight before sending everybody back to camp.


As soon as the castaways return to camp, they split up to discuss strategy. Landon, Kyle, and Emma all go fishing while they have their discussion.

Both of the last two tribal councils, I was just one vote away from going to the jury, so I'm definitely glad to have immunity tonight.


Emma: So the plan is to get rid of Reyna tonight?

Landon: Yeah, we need to get ahead in the numbers. It'll be the easiest path to the final three.

Kyle: He's right. Once Reyna's out of the way, Phoebe will be the only real threat remaining.

The good news is that Reyna's the only thing standing between my alliance and a numbers advantage. The bad news is that there's no guarantee that we'll be able to coax Phoebe and Shannon into going along with the plan.


Kyle goes to find Phoebe and Shannon. They are attempting to start a fire to no avail.

Kyle: Are you two thinking about voting for Reyna?

Phoebe: Why Reyna?

Kyle: She's got two votes, and the tribe is now down to seven. She's dangerous because of that. Just think about it. Landon and I will take you guys to the final four if you do.

Phoebe: But I thought Emma was in league with you guys.

Kyle: She and I don't trust each other. Just think about it, okay?

By the looks of it, Kyle wants to go back to playing Ashikaga vs. Kamakura. It's not entirely surprising, knowing how he was the last to truly accept that the game isn't being played like that. I figure he's just going on a power trip, but hey; at least I'm not his target.


Phoebe and Shannon go into the woods to discuss their course of action.

Shannon: We have to do this now. Next time, it could be too late.

Phoebe: No. He's probably expecting us to go for him now, so we need to bide our time. Besides, we've got the idol.

However, Reyna, overhearing their conversation, enters the area.

Reyna: What's this? You have an idol?

Phoebe: (bleep). I was hoping nobody would hear that.

Reyna: Look, I'm not going to beg for the idol, but I'll tell the others that you have the idol unless you help me get rid of Landon.

Shannon: We were going to vote for Landon, anyway. He's the biggest threat right now.

Reyna: Alright, then your secret's safe.

As soon as Reyna leaves, Phoebe, usually very level-headed, is quick to scold Shannon.

I cannot believe Shannon just did that. Now, if we don't vote for Landon, we'll look bad in front of the jury.


Phoebe: Why did you do that?

Shannon: I'm just trying to appease her so she'll keep the secret. But I still want to get rid of Landon now.

Phoebe: I'm not writing Landon's name down just yet. But if you want to risk having to draw a rock, go right on ahead.

Phoebe's really mad about this. Although she raises some good points, I don't get why Phoebe won't vote for Landon. This next vote is a matter of life and death, and I don't even know for sure what to do.


At sunset, the castaways collect their torches and depart for tribal council.

Tribal Council

The Kasai tribe enters the tribal council area, greeted by Jeff.

Jeff Probst: We now bring in the members of our jury. Dave. Hannah. Donna. Chuck. And Bryce, voted out at last night's tribal council.

Bryce smiles and waves at the remaining castaways before taking his seat next to Donna on the Jury bench.

Jeff Probst: Reyna, after Bryce claimed to have a hidden immunity idol, only to reveal later that it was a fake, have any suspicions about the true whereabouts of the idol come up?

Reyna: I'm sure a lot of people are secretly suspicious, although it's entirely possible that all three of them are out of play because the jurors didn't play them when they were needed.

The Jurors look around at each other, mildly surprised that Reyna would think any of them had an idol with them when they were voted out.

Jeff Probst: Kyle, what's your take on this? Any idea were the idols might be?

Kyle: I've wondered about the idols too, Jeff. They've played a very limited role in the game so far, either because we keep voting out the people who have them, or because some of us are really good at keeping secrets.

Chuck and Dave both look like they want to say something, but they cannot.

Jeff Probst: Landon, some of the jurors look like they know something you and the others don't.

Landon: That must mean somebody has an idol. The million dollar question is "who?".

Phoebe and Shannon look to each other and nod. Silently, Shannon takes the hidden immunity idol out of her bag. Everyone stares at her wide-eyed.

Shannon: You can't use that information as leverage anymore, Reyna.

Everyone, even Jeff, is momentarily speechless. After about fifteen seconds, Jeff continues grilling the castaways.

Jeff Probst: Reyna, what is Shannon talking about when she mentions leverage?

Reyna: I caught them with the hidden idol this afternoon before tribal, and I offered to keep the information a secret if they helped me get rid of my biggest threat.

Jeff Probst: And that is...?

Reyna: Landon.

The jury, with the exception of Hannah, looks at each other excitedly. Landon maintains a convincing poker face.

Kyle: Remember our deal, Phoebe. Reyna didn't say anything about bringing you to the end. I did.

Landon looks at Kyle, shocked. Everybody else seems to be at a loss for words.

Jeff Probst: And with that, it is time to vote. Patrick, you're up.

One by one, the castaways cast their votes.

You're playing the best game right now, so we have to let you go.

–Patrick (voting for Landon)

Jeff Probst: I'll go tally the votes.

Jeff leaves to get the voting urn, returning a minute later.

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

Shannon gets up to play it, but Phoebe is quick to encourage her to hold on to it. Somewhat reluctantly, Shannon complies. Ultimately, nobody plays an 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.

...Second vote: Landon. Two votes Landon.

...Landon. Three votes Landon.

Landon nods grimly.

Jeff Probst: Reyna. Three votes Landon, one vote Reyna.

...Reyna. Three votes Landon, two votes Reyna.

...Reyna. We are tied, three votes Landon, three votes Reyna.

...Reyna. Four votes Reyna, three votes Landon, one vote left.

Reyna glares at Phoebe and Shannon.

Jeff Probst: Thirteenth person voted out, and the sixth member of our jury: Reyna. That's five votes. That's enough. Please bring me your torch.

Reyna: You two officially have no shot at winning this game.

Reyna gets up and brings her torch to Jeff.

Jeff Probst: Reyna, the tribe has spoken.

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

Jeff Probst: It's time for you to go.

With nothing else to say to her former tribemates, Reyna leaves the tribal council area and disappears into the forest.

Jeff Probst: Some may think that this is one of the biggest blown opportunities ever in Survivor history. But, as you all know, this game isn't over yet. Grab your stuff. Head back to camp. Good night.

The remaining six castaways pick up their torches and embark on the hike back to camp.

Voting Confessionals

If this bluff works and you take the fall, hopefully you won't hold it against me. You're playing this game the way it needs to be played, and I have a ton of respect for you.

–Bryce (voting for Emma)

This could easily bite me in the ass, but you don't have immunity right now, so I've got to roll the dice here.

–Emma (voting for Bryce)

Hopefully we can patch things up at the end of this game. It's partly my fault that we haven't really gotten along.

–Kyle (voting for Bryce)

With you out of the way, all my biggest threats will be gone. Sorry buddy, but this is way overdue.

–Landon (voting for Bryce)

Just trying to ensure that Bryce can win more immunities so the alliance can stay strong to the end. You're the only option right now. Sorry.

–Patrick (voting for Emma)

Here's the thing with the fake idol bluff; it'll only work twice on the same people of those same people are extremely stupid. And I'm not stupid.

–Phoebe (voting for Bryce)

I think you're a great friend and a wonderful person, but we're playing a game. Don't take it personal.

–Reyna (voting for Emma)

If you're going to bluff about having something, at least make sure that nobody else already has it.

–Shannon (voting for Bryce)

Final Words

Well, momma always said I wouldn't know how to tell a lie. I was hopin' that bluff would work, but apparently it didn't, so now here I am. But I have no regrets, man. I never would have thought earlier that I could survivor a whole month in these conditions. I think I made my gymnastics students proud, and that is worth so much more than a million dollars.

Voting Confessionals

I hope we can still be friends after this. I feel like I still need to prove to my alliance that I'm trustworthy.

–Emma (voting for Reyna)

Time's up. Thanks for playing.

–Kyle (voting for Reyna)

This is going to be the last time I dispose of a daimyo like that. After this vote, there's hardly any competition left and I won't have to play kingmaker anymore. Goodbye.

–Landon (voting for Reyna)

You're playing the best game right now, so we have to let you go.

–Patrick (voting for Landon)

Next time you want people to vote with you, don't blackmail them into it. Offer them a good position in the game. Oh wait; there won't be a next time.

–Phoebe (voting for Reyna)

Hopefully Shannon keeps her word. You're the most dangerous player left in the game.

–Reyna (voting for Landon)

This is probably the hardest decision I'll ever make in this game, but Phoebe seems to know what she's doing, so I gotta trust her. I really want to vote out Landon, but I don't want to have to draw rocks.

–Shannon (voting for Reyna)

Final Words

*sighs* Well, what can I say? Seventh sucks. But overall, I really enjoyed my time out here. I've made some good friends, and I proved just what I'm capable of. Emma, give 'em hell. I'm rooting for you now that I'm out of the running.

Next Time on Survivor...

Now that he is seemingly in the majority, Landon gets cocky.

The roughest part is definitely over. I'm pretty much set for the final three.


But Phoebe has other ideas.

Phoebe: It's time.
