Survivor: Second Chance Episode 8

Kass trying to cause chaos bit her a lot earlier this time than last, leading to her elimination in Survivor: Second Chance Episode 7.

Ciera wants to play hard, not smart, just hard. She tells Stephen that her target is Joe. That’s not a bad idea actually. When he stops winning.

For the reward challenge, they jump into boats, untie crates, and stack those crates so there are no repeating colors on any side. Reward is a trip to the Survivor cafe. Joe, Kelly, Kelley, Keith, Kimmi, and Ciera are against Tasha, Andrew, Spencer, Jeremy, Stephen, and Abi. They are even until the midway point when Joe pushes the others team off course, the first in a series of problems from which they never recover. Joe’s team wins reward.

At the top of the episode, Ciera said her target is Joe. Now that she’s on a reward with him, she has a different story for the group: Jeremy, Tasha, Stephen, and Savage will never turn on each other. If you keep stirring the pot and just throwing names out there for the sake of throwing names out there, there’s always the risk that someone will say your name.

Stephen’s whining at camp that he lost as usual. The people he needs to bond with are on the reward with his enemy, Joe. After that, he uses the time to plot against Joe, which Andrew overhears. When Joe finds out, he says he didn’t expect this so soon. Why not? That seems pretty dumb.

For the immunity challenge, they will balance a ball on a disc attached to ropes. Kelley and Ciera are eliminated within seconds and then the other Kelly and Jeremy. Abi is next followed by Stephen and Andrew. They are dropping like flies here. Round 1 lasts for 10 minutes. Kimmi is the first to drop in the next round and then Tasha. The three who remain move to the final round. Spencer is out. A second ball is added for the final two. Keith won this the last time he competed in it, but this time he gets beaten by Joe. Basically any challenge no matter what is likely to be won by Joe, which is exactly why there’s no way he’ll make it to the end unless he wins everything.

Because Stephen got caught talking about Joe, he’s the target now. Joe approaches the three girls who are on the bottom to secure the necessary votes, and Andrew goes to everybody else. Jeremy’s the only one to offer resistance to this plan, and it is immediately changed as a result. Joe lets the girls know this is a no go, and they assume one of them is the target.

At Tribal Council, Ciera again points out the group of four people who are in control: Jeremy, Tasha, Andrew, and Stephen or Joe. I think that’s five. Kelley won’t name names just in case she’s still here tomorrow.

Knowing she’s a possible target, Wentworth plays her idol, shocking everybody.

With 2 votes, Andrew has been voted off the island. The outcasts controlled the vote as the majority doesn’t even think about splitting the vote, despite having plenty of votes to split it between three people if they wanted. They just got cocky. If Joe kept quiet and didn’t tell the girls that plans had changed, perhaps he could have saved his closest ally.
