Honestly, David — you’re going to miss that idol.
Last night’s episode of Survivor was an idol episode. Almost all of the action revolved around the two immunity idols. Over on the Millennial Tribe, Adam managed to find the immunity idol. Oddly, it appears that he was the only one looking for it, which highlights what could be the Millennial’s biggest problem: they don’t seem to understand that Survivor is ultimately going to be a game of individuals.
Meanwhile, over on the Gen X tribe, David used his immunity idol to save Jessica from eviction. He didn’t even let his closet alley, Ken, know what he was planning. By playing the idol, he kept Jessica from being voted off the island and, presumably, he also made an ally out of her. If Jessica does remain loyal, that would mean that the new Gen X majority alliance would be Ken, CiCi, David, and Jessica with Bret, Chris, and Sunday on the bottom.
As a result of David’s move, Lucy was voted out. After spending three episodes in the background, Lucy suddenly emerged as a literal terror last night. She attempted to take control of the Gen X tribe and she came on so strong that I’m not surprised that she freaked out David. David is scared of grasshoppers, after all. It’s not surprising that Lucy would send him into a panic.
Next week, we get a tribal shakeup. Buffs will be dropped. New tribes will be formed. I can’t wait to see it because something definitely needs to change. Right now, the tribes are to unevenly matched. Gen X is too old and out-of-shape. The Millennial Tribe may be full of annoying people but at least they know how to work as a team.
Still, David’s going into a tribal shakeup without an immunity idol. That’s not necessarily a good thing for him.
Anyway, have a good week everyone! I apologize for the short post. Jeff & I are currently at Mt. Nebo in Arkansas! I’ll be back next week and, just in time for the tribal shakeup!
