Spoiler Alert...Below are the results and a few thoughts from last night's Survivor: Redemption Island. So before reading any further, watch the ep, live by a samurai code, then read what I have to say.
This week on Survivor, the Golden Boy continued to dominate Redemption Island challenges thanks to the help of God, Phillip continued being the best thing to come out of Survivor since Coach Wade, and Boston Rob sneakily continued to make some of the best strategic moves of the season.
As far as Matt goes, they tried to mix things up on him with a non-physical challenge for the duel, and he still came out on top. Even though there is a lot of luck in the old memory challenge, it was nice to see him dominate once more. And as long as he keeps letting God know that he'll stay on the island as long as the big man needs him to, Matt will go a long way...Dan wrote sarcastically.
Although everything that comes out of Agent Phil's mouth is pure gold, I'm starting to worry that he's slightly stealing Coach Wade's shtick. I mean talking about samurai codes, and referring to Matt as a warrior? Coach invented the word warrior! Wait, he didn't? I guess that was just part of one of Coach's awesome stories.
Boston Rob has now found the clue to the hidden immunity idol on a number of occassions. Each time he has done so secretly and then followed the retrieval by throwing it away - this time into a volcano. This act each and every time Ometepe wins a challenge may seem trivial to some viewers, but I think it is one of the most important moves I've seen Rob make in his last two seasons. If he allowed others to find the clue, or showed it to them once he found it, they would be inclined to go looking for the hidden idol. When they ultimately found nothing, the other tribes people would start to wonder if someone else had it, and the target would eventually end up on Rob's back. If this squad ever loses another challenge, Rob is currently the last one on anyone besides Phillip's mind. Constantly finding clues next to cookies may get him a long way.
So before you let your enemy move first, check out the fantasy scores in which I continue to dominate...
