Episode 4

Higanti Camp (Day 9)

After winning the immunity challenge, and the reward that came with it, the Higanti tribe felt good with their camp life, and they generally enjoyed each other as well.

Terry, Ian and Jay went on their raft to go try and catch some fish, while doing so, Terry's actions and personality reminded Ian of Tom Westman, and realized that if Terry makes make deep in the game, Ian would be right where he was in Palau. Ian does like Terry a lot, doesn't really want to vote him off right now... but he begins to be concerned about Terry's growing threat.

In order to be able to catch up and learn more about the modern gameplay and strategy of Survivor, Greg asks Sabrina and Jay to tutor him in the ways of the modern game. They would sneak off camp to get some alone time so that they could teach him. RC notices this and she begins to wonder about where Sabrina's loyalty truly lies, she is getting some "Abi flashbacks" as she gets paranoid about her position in their voting block agreement.

Domenick, feels confident about his four-person alliance, however he gets a gut feeling that the other 7 members of the tribe might be scheming against him, and he asks RC if she knows anything, she denies it and tells him that he nothing to worry about, as they are a tight tribe, and it would just be stupid if they did anything like that. Domenick then goes to try and ask Michelle about anything, and while trying to deny it, she slips up about knowing about Carolyn's idol, Dom presses her even more for information, she ended up saying how she knew, but doesn't let anything up about the secret voting block.

Domenick then goes to Carolyn, Terry and Trish to say that they might be in trouble, and they should do something about it, Trish doubts him and calls him paranoid, she tells him that he shouldn't worry about anything, and if anything does happen, they can just vote Michelle off. But Dom is hesitant that something is up, and that he is worried that he may just be paranoid, since he doesn't want to make the same mistakes as he did last season where he rubbed people the wrong way with his aggressive gameplay, and stops to think more rationally before he makes a move.

Pagbawi Camp (Day 9)

After attending Tribal Council and blindsiding Lauren, the whole tribe was felt both relieved and furious, they figured out Lauren's lie that she didn't lose a vote and was covering up an advantage of some sort. And her alliance have come to an agreement, that yes, Lauren should've gone home, for not telling them the truth.

The next day, Teresa returned from Ghost Island and was shocked that Lauren went home, as she wanted to make an alliance with her. She heard about what happened with Lauren's lie, and decided to tell the whole tribe the "truth" about Ghost Island, that once you're sent there, you're given an advantage in the game, she claims she got an idol clue, that she couldn't take back to camp, but she would try to describe it, so that they could find it and use it as a tribe in the future. And after telling them about this made-up clue, everyone ran off to go try and find it.

Teresa then gets Hayden, Reynold and Christian together, so that she could explain to them what is actually happening. She tells them honestly about what is in Ghost Island, that if you're sent there, you'll receive an advantage about your previous game, and she's not really sure what the rest of them will get, but she tells them that she will need their help using her new Extra Vote and it's conditions. Christian and Hayden complied and also told them about the idol they had. And that with two advantages, this minority four can now stand a chance to turn this game around.

Jaclyn was pissed at Lauren for lying to them, while Cydney and Natalie, somewhat understood her position and has no ill will against her, but with last night's blindside, they would need to regroup and do some damage control. Rafe, doesn't really have anything against the rest of the girls, and rejoins their alliance. But Cydney doesn't trust Sean and Shane, she is aware of their mischief and she does not want any part in that. However, Natalie overrules her and says that they'll need the numbers, and she gets Sean and Shane back on their side.

The day ends and no one found the "Idol", everyone seems to not doubt Teresa, but just they assumed that she messed up a detail or two, or that someone else had found it already.

Reward Challenge (Day 10)

Challenge: The Gauntlet

Higanti, you're getting your first look at the new Pagbawi Tribe, Lauren voted out at the last Tribal Council.

Alright, are you guys ready to get to today's Challenge? First's things first, Higanti, I'll take back the immunity idol. And today, Immunity is not up for grabs, because tonight, both Tribes will be going to Tribal Council, both Tribes will be voting someone out. Today's challenge is simply for Reward, which is going to be information. Whoever wins this challenge, will attend tribal council first and vote someone out, after doing so, you will then move over to the jury bench, where you will listen in the losing Tribe's Tribal Council, while of course, also enjoying a meal, there will be stew, pastries, pasta, maybe even a bottle of beer or two. You will be enjoying all that while listening in and learning some hopefully valuable information about the other tribe.

Worth playing for? Alright, for today's challenge:

One at a time, each tribe member has to traverse a rope swing, three rolling barrels, a balance beam, a 'wobbly bridge', and two-rope hand-over-hand bridge to retrieve a pennant, followed by returning to the starting line. Meanwhile, three members of each tribe will be using swinging bags to try and knock their opponents into the water as they cross the three middle obstacles. First to ten pennants wins reward.

Ian, this challenge was used back at Palau, and is actually one of the few challenges that Koror lost, do you think history will repeat itself? You now have a second chance to redeem this challenge for Koror. And Higanti, you have one extra member, who are you sitting out? Michelle, take a seat in the Sandra Bench, everyone else, I'll give you a minute to strategize... we'll get it on.

(No Ghost Island for Today)

Survivors Ready?? Go!!

(Higanti now has a 7% advantage from their previous rewards, Pagbawi needs at least 57% or above in order to win this challenge, and there won't be any advantages gained from this challenge, it's just food for a single night)

(Also this challenge will from 5am to 9am EST, a little early from our usual 8-12, that is because with 2 tribal councils tonight, I will be needing time to create the scenarios, strategies and polls for all 21 players, The two tribal councils will take place simultaneously from 6pm-12mn) (we'll just pretend that somebody went first)

Reward Challenge Results (Day 10)

Pagbawi wins Reward!!

Alright, here's how it's going to work, Pagbawi, you will be attending Tribal Council first and be voting someone out, after that the remaining nine of you, will move over to the jury bench, where you will be eating the meals that you just won, all the while you listen as Higanti has their Tribal Council and maybe you'll learn some vital information you'll need in the future.

You both have the afternoon to figure out who is going to be the 4th and 5th person voted off Survivor: Second Chance, you can head back to Camp, Good Luck, I'll see you at Tribal Council.

(both Tribal Councils will happen simultaneously at 6pm-12mn EST, before that will be camp time for the castaways to strategize)

Pagbawi Camp (Day 10)

The Tribe was excited about the meal that their about to get later this night, but they are also worried about the Tribal Council that comes alongside it.

The Majority alliance confirms that their Target will be Hayden, Natalie makes Rafe, Sean and Shane swear that there will not be any funny business this time, that Hayden will be voted out with 6 votes tonight, they should just keep it simple.

Sean and Shane naturally felt uncomfortable with this, and they went to Reynold to see if they have any other options. Hayden tells them that his alliance wants Natalie gone next, for her being the leader of that alliance, and for being a strategic threat, Sean and Shane "agrees" with him, and they consider this option.

However, once Reynold got to talk with Teresa about using her advantage, she realizes that Sean and Shane are the swing votes, and they have been this whole time by flip flopping and running circles around the rest of them... so maybe tonight they should get rid of them. So they reached out to Cydney who had been protesting their elimination last time and she told them that Sean and Shane also agreed to their plan and confirmed that they are the people running the camp right now. So the three of them hatched a plan to the other members of their alliances to just vote off Sean since he was the one more 'in charge' between the two of them (and also because Teresa had her Extra Vote, which had limited options to use it on, and Shane is the only one). They two alliances doesn't necessarily agree, but if it's for the good of the tribe, they'll at least try to work together.

Higanti Camp (Day 10)

The Tribe felt bummed about losing the reward, but they were more bummed about having to vote someone off tonight, since the tribe was truly feeling strong and united throughout the time they spent together (even Michelle).

But it had to be done, and the 'secret' voting block of RC, Sabrina, Jay, Ian, Greg, Kellee and Michelle mobilized and to plan their strategy for tonight, what they wanted was to flush Carolyn's idol, and to vote one of those other four out, even if they don't really want to, they assumed that Carolyn would play her idol on herself, so they conducted a Safe Vote plan and vote one of the other three, Kellee and RC wanted Trish to go, Ian and Michelle wanted Terry to go, Greg and Jay wanted Dom... after some debate, they eventually settled for Trish or Terry. And they assigned RC and Greg to go play some 'mind games' on Carolyn to try and make her play it tonight.

While Greg went to have a 'talk' with Carolyn, RC went to Dom, as she noticed his paranoia, and she thought that maybe, she could get in his head, and make him make Carolyn play her idol. But she then realized, that she could do something better. She could possibly pull a blindside on Jay as she thought that he's getting too chummy with Sabrina, who was supposedly her number one ally... she asks Dom about this plan, and he considers it, as he is a challenge beast and threat later on, but he does want to keep around a little longer and just vote Michelle. But RC plays with him a little, tells him that Jay might be planning to take him out and makes him even more paranoid.

Domenick, does fall into her trap, and becomes extra paranoid. He goes to Carolyn to tell her to get that idol ready, since he thinks something is definitely up. Carolyn doubts him at first, but when he says that Michelle knew about her idol, she becomes alert. They discuss possibly voting for Jay tonight. Dom then goes back to RC to confirm her plan, Dom got Carolyn, Terry and Trish on board, they only need one more vote to pull it off, and Michelle can be their sixth. However Trish doesn't really trust RC, and wants to blindside her instead, so she goes to Jay himself and tells him about RC's plan, which gave him a shock, and he told his alliance (Greg and Ian) to flip their vote to RC if they have to. Trish also tells Carolyn to ready her idol, as she thinks that something big will happen tonight and they'll need everything they've got to survive this vote.

Tribal Council #4 (Day 10)

With a surprise double elimination twist happening in the game, the Pagbawi Tribe are sent right back to tribal council, where they'll finally settle the all the conflicts as they vote someone off the game.

Lauren's exit and Teresa's return from Ghost, let everyone know that advantages exist and no one can be really trusted. Natalie, Cydney, Jaclyn, Rafe, are the 'majority', while Hayden, Christian, Hayden and Teresa are on the 'minority', and for 9 long days, Sean and Shane have been masterfully ensuing conflict between the two alliances and getting themselves the powerful swing vote position, while being behind the scenes.

The alliances truly wants the other out, as now begin to target the leaders of the other alliance; Hayden and Natalie. And just wants a simple 6-4 vote on either one.

However Reynold and Teresa figured out what Sean and Shane have been up to, and they worked together with Cydney to try and unite their two alliances and work together to vote Sean (the perceived 'leader' of the two) out of the game.

But can the alliances trust each other enough to do this? or will the tribe remain split in half? and which alliance will prevail in tonight's tribal council?

Tribal Council #5 (Day 10)

With a double elimination twist sending them to Tribal Council, the Higanti Tribe now has to vote someone out, despite this tribe seemingly being a tight group of 11. Will this Tribal Council change all that?

There is a 'secret' voting block of 7 formed by RC and Sabrina with Jay, Ian, Greg, Kellee and Michelle, to vote off someone in the four-person alliance of Domenick, Terry, Carolyn and Trish. However things got complicated when they discovered that Carolyn had an idol and posed a threat to their plans. They needed to flush it, so they deployed a safe vote strategy to bypass the Idol and still vote either Trish or Terry out, but they needed to convince Carolyn to play it tonight and on the wrong person. So they made RC go and try to trick Carolyn into misplaying her idol.

But RC had other plan, she wanted Jay out for being too close with Sabrina, who her number one ally, so she elected a paranoid Dom to tell his alliance about this plan, but they needed a 6th person, so they got Michelle in as well. Jay will be blindsided.

However, Trish does not trust RC at all, and elects that they turn the table on her and she went to Jay to tell him that RC's been gunning for him and he should do something, Jay gets his alliance; Greg and Ian to flip their vote if they need to, and if that happens, RC will be blindsided.

With a lot of targets flying around, alliances being tested, plans and schemes popping in and out, and an Idol at play, can the Higanti Tribe still stay strong after this vote?
