Episode Summary

I'm Pulling for You
From Discoverykids.com:

The day begins in the jungle with the Yellow team (Bryanah and Monroe) in low spirits. Understandably, they still have not fully recovered from Gray (Lindi and Chris) taking their only two pyramid pieces the previous afternoon. JD encourages Yellow to hang in there and continue to play hard, because there are many twists and turns yet to unfold on Endurance: Hawaii. Fate and good fortune could be just around the corner.

Speaking of twists, JD goes on to announce that there will be no Temple mission today and no team will be eliminated that evening! Instead, the teams will compete in another Endurance mission, for the Courage pyramid piece and the power to choose which team will be handicapped by the Samadhi. It all seems like good news until JD throws out one last bit of information about this mission's Samadhi - the team that receives it will have absolutely no chance of winning the next day's Temple mission!

Back at the huts the teams begin to make plans about who they'll give the Samadhi to should they win, even though the game has yet to be played. Tom (Brown team) and Demian (Orange team) are focused on knocking Gray and Purple (Sara and Reece) out of first place. But the hitch in their plan is Nicole (Orange), who's decided that if the power is hers, she will not send Gray or Purple to Temple. Tempers within the Orange team flare. Demian and Nicole feverishly argue, until Nicole drops a bombshell - she told Chris about the secret Orange-Brown-Yellow alliance! Everything is out in the open - now Yellow and Brown (Vanetta and Tom) think they're doomed! And when Chris confronts Monroe about the secret alliance, Chris confirms their fears, telling Monroe that if Gray wins the Endurance mission that afternoon, Yellow will get the Samadhi, and if Gray wins the next day's Temple mission, Yellow will be sent to Temple!

Amidst all the drama, there is an Endurance mission to be played. It's called "I'm Pulling for You." In this rope-and-pulley game, the teams will have to work together by tethering up (and down) 25 feet in the air to place 12 pieces on to a hanging ledge. The first team to get all 12 pieces from the ground on to the perched ledge wins the game, the Courage pyramid piece and the opportunity to hand out the dreaded Samadhi.

JD begins the game. Orange team takes an early lead, but it doesn't last long as Purple quickly ties them. Orange and Purple are neck-and-neck with four pieces each when disaster strikes: several of Orange's pieces fall from their ledge! They have to regroup and put those pieces back! Purple now has the lead, but as Sara tries to put a piece on their ledge, her piece falls too! That gives Chris and Lindi an opportunity to get into the game, and they seize the moment. Purple claws their way back into the game, but in the end Gray team prevails and wins the mission! The Courage piece is theirs, and the fate of the Samadhi rests with them!

Back at the huts, everyone pretty much knows which team will be getting the Samadhi. While Yellow feels as though they are continuously being picked upon, the Gray-Purple-Nicole alliance has little sympathy for Bryanah and Monroe. But Demian has an alternate view of what's happened up to this point. He's completely fed up with Nicole, and he tries to make a deal with Chris and Reece to send Orange to Temple if either of them wins the next day's mission. He doesn't think Nicole deserves to win the game, and he's willing to sacrifice himself in the process. Demian offers to help Gray and Purple win the Temple mission if they promise to send Orange!

JD meets with the group on the island. To no one's surprise, Gray gives Yellow the Samadhi. As a result, Yellow will not be able to compete in the next day's Temple mission, which means they have no chance to win immunity from being sent to Temple! Will tomorrow be Yellow team's final day in the jungle? Or will they somehow manage to beat the odds and survive once again? Find out next time on Endurance: Hawaii!moreless
