We never saw the end of the conversation between Melissa and Mike... the question of the hour is: did she forgive him???
If she did, Mike's not going anywhere... Andrea and Toni hate him, but Tomiko and Ralph stayed out of it (which probably means that Tomiko backs Mike) and Jeanette's not about to vote out the guy that brought her back. If Melissa forgave Mike, it's just Toni that will vote against him...
I suspect that she did forgive him...
Now, Darin and Ralph are practically unseen in the preview for Ep6... Tomiko is also unseen.
I have no idea how or why Tomiko would get voted out... she wasn't in this last episode at all!!!
Also... did you notice how obvious it was that Anthony and Mike are being set up as the key male players, with Toni and Andrea backing Anthony and everyone else backing Mike!!!
I have no idea how it's gonna happen, but I cannot forsee any ending, other than the battle between the evil masterminds... the only question remaining: Will Mike or Anthony win?
Now... for the ladies: Melissa and Darin are being set up as a couple, and Toni was reminiscing about Greg...
I think they're setting Melissa and Toni up for loser island (where they can return to their "true loves").
Mike "I have to change my strategy" the clown will probably end up with Jeanette for the final vote. From the bug-eyed preview, we've seen that Toni will oppose Jeanette, too... her jury speech should be great... move over Sue Hawk.
Now... who does Anthony end up with??? If Toni and Melissa are really leaving, I'm having a hard time believing that Tomiko could be in the finals... we haven't seen her, at all... *if* she is in the finals, surely she will lose... won't she???
Now... the season-long slant has been toward Toni... but after this episode, I have a hard time seeing her in the finals (at least not without Greg)...
We also know that there will be a second opportunity to bring someone back from loser island... So, I'm beginning to wonder who Anthony will bring back... There's a good chance that Melissa, Michael, Jeanette, and Anthony will end up in the finals... last round is ladies choice, and when both Jeanette and Melissa pick Mike, and Mike partners with Jeanette (who he knows everyone wants to win), Melissa and Anthony probably both jump at the opportunity to ditch their partner.
Melissa will be consoled that she's returning to the island to Darin, but who will Anthony pick???
Or maybe Melissa will get to bring someone back, and she'll bring Darin back... Now... Mike has Toni, Andrea, and Anthony against him, and all of loser island is pissed at Jeanette for not doing the one thing they asked: Get rid of Anthony (Melissa had to do it)... So Melissa and Darin (a "true couple", despite the fact that Melissa has a long-term boyfriend) win???
Damn... I really, really meant to stop typing after "Did Melissa forgive Mike?"... but I couldn't... not with my brain spewing tons of questions that I need answered... before tomorrow.
So... while we're at it:
Will there only be one boot tomorrow??? How early in the episode will it be??? Will they show the next couple's competition, too (like they did, tonight)??? When is the second chance to trade your partner??? What will be covered in the final episode (ie: final three couples, or final two???... a chance to trade??? Before or after the third couple goes to loser island???)
Hmmm... I need answers... anyone have thoughts?
You never know what might be up my sleeeve...
