Thought that the other threads were getting quite long, so at this point I am starting a boot discussion thread to mull over the prospects...We have:
Rob...most likely misdirection. He's "on fire this season"
Phillip....possible, but most likely misdirection, again.
Rooster...has the HII, won't get the "power"
Mike...biggest and buffest challenge contender from Zaps. Could go to RI and start a real run to the end. Spike in confessionals last week. Seems a likely target.
Steve...taking over narrator responsibilities. We've heard from Steph that he's getting weak, despite size.
Then, there is one more...
I want to discuss something here that has not yet been discussed other places, at least that I have seen. In the promo we have this...
VO: Then, the scrambling begins.
Mike: "This is where I got to go for broke."
Rob: "He's playing both sides."
Steve: "... this division between us."
Andrea: "I trusted Rob once before..."
Phillip: "This is a whole new game now."
Mike is telling us how he sees it...he's a big target now in the minority group
Rob notes, "he's playing both sides", which alot of people suspect he's talking about Phillip. For me, however, he's not talking about Phillip, he's talking about Matt. If Matt is not given immunity, could he be toast? I have not heard anyone discussing this possibility. ALL of the misdirection clues are about Matt. But, because of the RI duel, we cannot see the winner in the promos...hidden.
We need to think like Rob, AND, we need to think like David. If Matt is showing signs of voting with Ometepe, I could see David going to Rob to mutually kick Matt...I see David using his brilliant and strategic mind to maintain in this game, along with his tribe, the Zaps. I definitely do not see him throwing in the towel with the Zaps at all. He may later, as his options decrease, but not now.
We know that Andrea is misdirection...she may not be against Rob at all, her clip is from post ep 2. Phillip is just Phillip, at this point.
Thoughts? We can't take for granted that Matt gets immunity.
ETA: Look at Rob looking at Matt here...
