Ashley: ”… and then there were five”
Ashley (to Natalie): “I really trust you.”
Ashley: (confessional) "I really trust Natalie."
Natalie: "She thinks it's me and her."
Ashley: I love a blindside!
Grant: “Splitting them up is the best route!”
Grant (telling Rob) “I’m with you, dude.”
Rob: “I won’t vote you out.”
Phillip: “Thank you.”
Rob: “You have my word.”
Rob: “You just have to do what I say.”
Rob (to Natalie): “Ashley can’t be trusted.”
Rob (to Natalie): “I’ve got your back. You just have to do what I say.”
STEALTH ARE US, (l. to r.) the Assasin, the Specialist and the Mentalist make a pact. Perhaps they are hatching a plan to oust Ashley from their tribe?
But then there is the Immunity Challenge …
It’s anyone’s game … who will win?
Next, we hear Boston Rob in confessional …
Rob: “One thing you don't' want to happen... It happens.”
What is "the worst thing to happen" you ask? Well, some think that Stealth R Us have hatched a plan to vote out Ashley. But their scheme is foiled when Ashley wins the Immunity Challenge.
However, I recall last week's show where Boston Rob confided to his sister telling her that the worst thing that could possibly happen would be for two alliance mates to talk and compare notes. This plants the seed that perhaps two of Rob's alliance mates are talking and comparing notes - perhaps Grant leads Rob to believe this, and they agree at that time that it is time for Ashley to go.
So, who will it be voted out at Tribal Council you ask?THE BOOTEE1st Pick:
Behind Curtain Number One some think it will be …
The first plan was to break the Spa Girls up and vote out Ashley. If Ashley wins Immunity however, there are some who think the Spa Girls are interchangeable and it will be Natalie who is voted off. As Krautboy so eloquently posted "When the 'worst possible thing happens', and Ashley wins immunity," it could be Natalie who goes. After all, we were also told by Jiffy, that Rob is now carrying Amber and his child on his back and there may no longer be room for Natalie. 2nd Pick:
There are others who think the boot will be:
Last week, he received a bye when he lost the Immunity Challenge and Andrea was sent packing. He is the biggest physical threat to win the remaining Immunity Challenges. Rob made a pact with Natalie, his number one F-2 partner, and he will not vote her out. Nor will Ashley vote her out. Phillip will do as he is told. In order for this vidcap to come TRUE ...
then, Grant, the Assasin, will make the walk of shame at Tribal Council.3rd Pick:
And behind Door Number Three for this week’s castoff, is
Special Agent Phillip, the red-haired stepchild
If Ashley indeed wins immunity, than Rob will stay true to his alliance with Grant and Natalie, and he doesn’t even have to vote for Phillip. Grant, Natalie and Ashley will vote Phillip. We are shown once again how annoying he is to the Spa Girls around camp. He has been the target for more than one episode. This week, his luck runs out and he is sent to Redemption Island where he will continue to annoy the HECK out of Mike, Matt and Andrea.
Although all of the above choices are viable ones, this week I am calling a spade a spade! My pick for the Boot this week is:
I agree with our resident-German boy Krautboy in his assessment of the week's vidcaps and voiceovers -- they are setting us up for the "Ashley v Natalie story line. Leading up to the IC, Ashley will probably be edited as Rob's choice for the votes at TC. Ashley will also be shown planning big moves with Natalie to vote out Phillip, who is unending in his torture of the Spa Girls. However, I do not think Ashley will win the Immunity Challenge. It will be Grant who receives the Immunity Necklace, and everything will go as planned. Ashley will make the trek to Redemption Island to join her friend Andrea.
REDEMPTION ISLAND QUADRUEL
And that brings me to Redemption Island…
We see the four daws competing in a Table Maze with Tile Smash …
First they must get through the maze, then smash their tiles and then finally complete a puzzle. Ralph aka Rooster finishes the maze first, but the Dumb-A$$ quickly falls short in the last puzzle leg. Matt finishes first, Mike second, and Andrea third and Rooster is sent off to join his friends at the Ponderosa.
That's it folks! Don't forget to make up your own minds and go post your votes in dabo's Vote Thread.
