NutMeg April 20, 2017 Share April 20, 2017 So, thoughts: - Why would Cirie go for the second most wanted target instead of for either the head or the lieutenant of the opposite alliance? This right here makes me thing that she was never robbed before! Parvati for sure would have gone for the biggest thread, and would have secured close to eternal gratitude from Hali in the process. - Still, the Cirie/Michela scene was very good. - Zeke wants to play big rather than play well. And so does Debbie. - Sad to see Ozzy go on a sour note (losing his track record, etc.). Idiotic to vote him out when he obviously is a player loosely allied to all and really a singleton in the game (see Hali) and no strategic threat. Although, serves him right for not following Sandra's advice :) - Hali is likely to start a very nice jury, so there's that. - How sadistic is the show willing to go? forgo the merge feast, really? At least, there were no hidden II in the food the time. - Andrea still has it, physically and strategically. You go girl, I'm rooting for you. - Speaking of, I liked that Troyzan automatically reverted to his professional self when he saw her emerging from the water. And I like that she then stumbled and fell. Andrea might have the look of a model but for the most part she is a very down-to-earth person who react with self consciousness when being "photo-ed" when she's not expecting it. Otherwise, I cannot hate on him, he's like a big doofus who's quietly enjoying himself this season - and looking good at it too, better than many men much younger than him. - And while we're on big doofuses, I really cannot see anything to hate about Brad. Maybe he's pushing his earnestness to the fore, but he wouldn't be able to do for so many days it if it didn't exist. And it's not as if his confessionals showed another persona that what we see in the game. I think he's playing a decent game so far, although it still remains to be seen how the people he's counting on now will deliver later. For my money, I would have kept likely loyal Ozzy rather than unpredictable Tai the idol whisperer. But hey, I have no dime in the game. And based on a secret scene a few episodes ago, Brad is far from underestimating Tai, he might actually be overestimating him: he sees him as a super intelligent dude who hides behind a humble demeanour, as opposed to people to claim to be all that but are not very clever. (That what I remember in a ballpark, not quoting verbatim, that was from when they were still on the same tribe.) - Sierra is - not interesting me much. On paper, she's not playing a bad game, but there's just something off. I don't know what it is. - I'm slowly warming up on Sarah because she has some hilarious confessionals and faces without even realising she does. 1 hour ago, fishcakes said: The first episode is why I think the "Cirie is a mastermind" thing is a myth. I can't tell what the alliances are because everyone seems to be talking to everyone, but it looks like the cores are Brad/Sierra vs. Andrea/Cirie with everyone else at varying levels of being up for grabs. Cirie knew the plan was to split the vote between Hali and Michaela and she knows that Hali is on the outs with Brad/Sierra. If the vote is split, it seems like that gives her an opportunity to gather up a majority to vote off one of Brad or Sierra. At that point it looked like Cirie, Andrea, and Zeke were tight, Michaela and Hali were obviously looking to save themselves and get into an alliance, Ozzie and Sarah seemed to be more inclined to go with this group than with the other side, and Aubry looks open too (although I think she's wanting to work with Brad, she's pragmatic enough to go with the other group if she can't be in his inner circle). That's a potential eight on Cirie's side and only five who are likely to be committed to a split vote. I can't believe Cirie didn't try to work that harder. She kept saying that voting off Michaela solidifies the other side's majority, but so does voting off Hali. She saved Michaela, but didn't strengthen her overall game position. Yes, that's what I was trying to say, but you explained it better! and with more details :) 1 hour ago, sadiegirl1999 said: I loved how Debbie mentioned Exile. Which brings me to...why was that a one-off? (As far as we know). I think someone posted that week that it was more for Debbie to not have a mental breakdown. I have a feeling most twists will be one-offs this season - like the idol at challenge, the idol(s) hidden at camp, the Exile experience. Probably to keep these so-called game changers on their toes. Although no idea what the next one could be. 4 Link to comment
