of the Round Table
As the Heroes discovered the clue to the
Hidden Immunity Idol.... and Tom finds it with no problems. He also has
no problem using it, taking Cirie out in the process. Meanwhile, Russell
looks for the Idol and only finds himself on the outside looking in at
his camp. Will that continue into the next round?
NIGHT 11: "Tonight, JT is a hero."
Colby doesn't plan on going anywhere. JT
says that Cirie's game has always been "stay loyal until things got
rough." There you go. Things are going to get rough... for JT.
DAY 12: "They think I saved them... I
JT swears to Amanda that he'll never turn
on him. Amanda sees right through him, though. "If he wants to play this
game, game on."
Over at the Villains' beach, Coach leads
the tribe in some meditation. Everyone's in it... except for Russell.
He's going Idol hunting. And the kicker, literally, is that it was in
his face the whole time.
R-CHALLENGE: Ultimate Rugby (from Samoa; for
a chocolate feast; Sandra, Courtney, Parvati and Colby sit out)
Three tribesmen will scramble for a ball
to hand off to another waiting tribesman, who'll shoot for a basket.
Best two-out-of-three scrambles wins.
Scramble 1: James takes a hard hit early.
Challenge stopped, in comes medical. James is out of the challenge, and
he goes to get tended to. Villains get a power play of sorts. Amanda
scores after, 1-0 heroes.
Scramble 2: Tyson scores, 1-1 tie... And
Rupert accidentally clotheslines Jerri.
Final scramble: JT blocks Rob's shot.
Rob... returns the favor. Jerri sinks the winner. Villains win, 2-1.
After medical looks James' knee, she
takes a splint to it and sees how it helps. Over at the reward, the
tribe thinks that Russell has the Idol. Parvati KNOWS he has the idol,
because Russell told them. Parvati thinks that this gives her a strong
footing, as she is perceived to be a threat. Russell then works on Coach
to get the numbers to blindside Rob.
Back on the Heroes side, the tribe is
licking their collective wounds. JT doesn't think James is coming back.
Rupert agrees. But sure enough, here he is. James has been cleared to
continue, and no one could be happier than Amanda. The leg doesn't hurt.
It's not broken. It's just... tweaked.
I-CHALLENGE: The Blind Leading the Blind
The tribe, blindfolded and paired, will
have to be directed by a caller to ten puzzle pieces. Once all ten large
pieces are returned, the tribe must put the puzzle together. The team
that does it first wins.
The Heroes are first to start on the
puzzle, but the Villains are going at each other once they get all of
their pieces. It's a close race.. but ultimate the VILLAINS win another!
DAY 14: "It's been established that they can
beat us in puzzles."
The tribe gears up for Tribal. They
question whether or not James is physically able to continue. JT and
Rupert still believe that a weak James is still stronger than a strong
Tom, a move Candice calls stupid and risky. But if JT tried anything
like that again, HE would be in the crosshairs. Rupert still wants to
get rid of Tom, then Candice. Amanda agrees.
JT and Candice can go either way. There's
no real logic there. Tom says that he has another noose around his neck.
He's hoping that JT will see the light. JT has planned to stick to
Rupert, voting out Tom. That's the word to Amanda and James. Colby says
that JT is "clearly just playing the hand that suits him today. If he's
making deals with everyone in this posse, I can guarantee you, that will
come to bite him."
NIGHT 14: Tribal
James STILL doesn't know what happened at
the challenge. Rupert thinks James is going to be okay. JT says that
James won't be voted out today due to his injury. He still has some
concern for him. As for the puzzle, everyone just went haywire, citing
Tom and Candice. Tom says that pretense is nonsense. James is being kept
for votes. Amanda thinks that Tom is being kept for the same thing.
James says that if Tom can outperform him in this opinion... then "vote
Tom: JAMES - "All mass, no class."
And the rest of the votes...
Candice also votes to evict, not that it
matters... By a vote of 5-2, Tom... THE TRIBE HAS SPOKEN.
