"S26 Finale Title: "Last Push""
LAST EDITED ON 05-09-13 AT 04:01 PM (EST)

no sources


"Last Push" ó With the title of Sole Survivor on the line and one million dollars within arm's reach, one castaway falls victim to a heartbreaking medical emergency, on the two-hour season finale of SURVIVOR: CARAMOAN Ė FANS vs. FAVORITES, followed by the live one-hour reunion show hosted by Emmy Award winner Jeff Probst, Sunday, May 12 (8:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Jeff Probst's EW.com Tease:

EW: Okay, weíve got a supersized three-hour finale/reunion show coming up next on Sunday night, so give us a supersized tease on what to expect. The nation is on pins and needles waiting to find out if there will be a Fallen Comrades tribute, and if so, whether it will be by land or by sea!

PROBST: Yes, there will be Fallen Comrades but I am determined to find a way to get rid of it in coming years! Itís a good finale. The game is definitely not over. We have another big turn moment. The only person who I donít think can win in any given scenario is Sherri. Sorry Sherri, itís not personal. I just donít see it happening at this point. Everybody else has a shot depending on which people end up in the final!

1. "Probst Interview"
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/survivor-caramoan-finale-jeff-probst-520260

The final episode starts off with a pretty major turn of events that completely changes the way the game will finish. ...

... there will still be a final three. We will have a jury of eight, and we do have a plan for how to deal with a tie. It only took us 13 years and 26 seasons to figure it out! ...

Every time someone got comfortable this season, they were gone the next tribal. That's the wildcard going into the finale -- will there be another blindside?

During that latest promo they showed Cochran, Eric, Sherri and Eddie competing in a challenge in non-broken down condition. If the med evac happens the night preceeding the challenges as the promo seems to suggest, the evacuee would be Dawn. Otherwise one might suspect that with the editing last week, it would be Eric.

Which wouldn't a super big suprise.

kingfish, the shot of Erik in the promo is recycled from when Erik won the Episode 12 ladder puzzle challenge. I posted a comparison shot here:

Dawn is also seen competing in a new challenge along with Sherri and Cochran. See the bottom of that post.

Eddie is seen in a different challenge, the same one from South Pacific Final 5 Immunity Challenge "Teeter Tower"

We should try to figure out whether they actually have two challenges this time. Timing could be key. Evacuation at F5 they could convert the IC to RC, maybe even skip a TC (though I expect they'd go ahead and film one, decide later whether it needs to be in the episode as aired). Evacuation at F4 they may as well scrap the challenge and send the remaining three on the Fallen Comrades walk, let the folks at the Ponderosa know what happened and they can take the night off.

5. "RE: Probst Interview"
Maybe it's one of those challenges where they have to complete some tasks that were part of previous challenges this season. The pieces that Eddie is stacking could be what Cochran is carrying in the yellow bag as he goes down the slide.
Segments could include:

*digging through rice pit for a bag of pieces
*untying knots and moving the yellow bag over obstacles
*going down the huge slide into mud


But I can't reconcile this with the other puzzle.

Any chance the medevaced player first shows signs of difficulty after F5 TC but vitals are stabilized at camp and the player is fit to continue, only to be pulled during or after the F4 IC when the physical stress of the challenge put him/her in enough danger for a medevac?

7. "RE: Probst Interview"
I think the puzzle challenge with the bags of pieces and the slide and rice is all one challenge. The building a house of tiles while balancing it all on the teeter is a different challenge. It didn't have the slide and all that stuff when they did it in South Pacific, it was a long and difficult challenge all on its own.

Two challenges.

If they get down to three players between the first and second challenge, the second challenge would be purposeless as far as the game goes. There is no need for immunity. There is no one around who will be going to the Ponderosa in disappointment. The politics of winning and sharing reward would be meaningless since they are all now finalists anyway. And they will all be getting breakfast on the beach the next morning.

The only reason to run it would be to have something to fill time in the episode. They have the Fallen Comrades for some of that, but the planned Tribal that night would have become purposeless as well.

Interesting dilemma for production. How much anticlimactic time do they spend in the finale between getting down to the final three and starting Final Tribal? They want to make memorable, watchable TV -- not a long slow tedious drag aggravating the viewing audience.

6. "RE: Probst Interview"
The final episode starts off with a pretty major turn of events that completely changes the way the game will finish.

Two options:
- Erik's been feeling horrible for the last two episodes. It would make sense for him to have to leave.
- Someone has an accident that requires an evac.

I think the first option is the more likely. Jeff says there's a jury of 8, so the person who leaves is still able to serve on the jury. If someone was injured badly enough to leave the game at this point, it would be highly unlikely that they'd be in shape 1-2 days later to be part of a jury. But if someone leaves due to physical weakness, they could recover enough in a day or 2 to be able to sit on jury.

Erik's storyline this season has been mostly an enigma, with the only consistent theme being his breaking down physically. I don't think Erik will make it to the final 3 because he's just wiped out. But after a comfy place to sleep, fresh food, and clean water, he would be well enough to be on the jury.

It's hard to imagine someone being so sick one day that they have to be evacuated and then fit the next day to sit through what is at least a 3 hour production. It has to be something like a false alarm.

I've been going nuts trying to reconsile a day 38 or night 38 medical evacuation with a night 39 FTC jury - cast a winner vote - performance. Glad to see I am not the only one who sees a discrepancy here.

Not saying it couldn't happen, but I don't know what bizarre circumstances woud make it so.

Can't figure it out.

Indigestion mistaken for heart attack? Maybe Disqualification camouflaged as evacuation?

More simply, a broken leg would disqualify him from the challenge, forcing him out of the game but he'd be back in a cast the next day.

Foreshadowing would be that Erik gets hit by lightning!

I think if it is serious enough for them to get Probst and medical to camp at night, it's very serious. Hospital serious. Lightning strike? It's Erik, how would they know if it scrambled his brain?

They have the storyline that he is withering, deteriorating, getting worse and worse. I think that's what happens, he reaches the breaking point. That's a painful debilitating point to reach.

12. "RE: Thank you"
Two thoughts come to mind here:

1)Severe deydration. Not "drink some more water" dehydration, but the kind that requires IV fluids to help. James missed a TC or 2 after his evacuation in Heroes vs Villains, but attended final with an antibiotic IV drip.

Extreme thirst
Irritability and confusion in adults
Very dry mouth, skin and mucous membranes
Lack of sweating
Little or no urination
Low blood pressure
Rapid heartbeat
Rapid breathing
In the most serious cases, delirium or unconsciousness

That could pull him.

2) Some type of psycho-physical ailment. Stress, especially prolonged unrelenting stress or prolonged lack of food can cause physical symptoms that could be serious.

Stress can make anyoneís heart palpitate wildly and increase pulse rate as well as blood pressure. Over time, serious stress can damage the heart with increased wear and tear for the reasons just mentioned.

If a lack of food continues a persons pulse rate will slow, blood pressure will fall, and the heart muscle atrophies.� The last organ to loose any weight is the brain.� Speech usually remains clear but it may be slowed dramatically.� One thing that does not change and has been reported to become more acute is hearing.� This increase in acuteness is probably due to an increased sensitivity to noise and general irritability. �While the brain continues to function, serious psychological effects take place.� The main effect has been called �the persistant clamour for hunger� basically it is the obsession with things to eat.� In this late stage of hunger the victim will sleep for long hours and wake up and concentrate only on his growing weakness and ways to get food.� Normally honest people are willing to do anything to get food.�


The highlighted part of this sure sounds like what we have seen of Eric lately. With IV and food/drink it would also be possible to bring him back for a FTC in 24 hours or less.
