Episode Summary

EDIT
Plant the Flag
AIRED:
The morning after the Grey team's departure, J.D. met the kids near their huts,and gave Jonna Max's hat that he left behind. Along with the hat, Max left a note for Jonna. The note read: "Give this to the next team you want to betray".
Aaron and Jonna of the Blue team are both shocked and confused by the letter, because, as Aaron says to the cameras, he thought Max understood why his team was sent to the temple.
Jonna tells the cameras that she didn't agree to sending the Grey team to temple, and usually speaks up when she doesn't agree with something.
Lana, of the Green team, tells the cameras that when her team returned from the Temple, Jonna pretended she was happy for them, but Lana claims it was only an act. Lana promises that if the Green team wins the Endurance mission, the Blue team will receive the Samadhi.
Later that afternoon, the teams arrive at the beach, where J.D. awaits for them. He explains to the teams that this weeks challenge is called "Plant the Flag" and is modeled after the planting of American flags at locations after major accomplishments (i.e: man landing on the moon). The challenge works like this: each pair of teamates will be connected by a pully system, and while one teamate is located on the ground, his movements will move his teamate up and down on the pully toward the truss above them, where four flags are located. The first team to collect all four flags and plant them at a designated location on the beach will win.
As the challenge begins, the Blue, Purple, and Yellow teams take an early lead. As the Blue and Purple teams fall behind, it allows the Yellow team an easy win.
After that challenge, the kids gathered back at their huts to recuperate from the intense challenge. Aaron tells the cameras that he is comfortable with the Yellow team's win, because he is sure his team won't receive the Samadhi. Sabrina, of the Yellow team, tells the cameras that she may tell a team they won't get the Samadhi...but she may be lying. She goes on to say you can't tell the truth in this game because you won't win if you do.
Later that day, the teams meet once again on the beach, where J.D. gives the Yellow team the Trust and Heart pyramis pieces, which Grey left behind. With their Endurance mission win, the Yellow team now has three pyramid pieces total. The Blue team also has three, while all other teams will have one piece.
When the kids return to their huts, Ashley and Sabrina tell Trevor, of the Green team, that his team will not receive the Samadhi if he tells them what happens at the Temple of Fate. Much to Lana's dismay, Trevor tells the girls what occurs at the Temple.
While Sabrina and Ashley ask Trevor and Lana further questions about the Temple, the other kids wonder which team will receive the Samadhi.
Later, J.D. met the kids at the rock, where he tells them although the Blue and Yellow teams have the most pyramis pieces, the Green team is the only team that knows what happens at the Temple. However, Christian informs J.D. that they ALL know because Trevor has told them all what happens.
J.D. then asks the kids to fill out an anonymous survey about the other teams, asking them questions such as 'which team is in charge?' and 'which team is the most honest?'
After the survey, the kids know that it is now time for the Yellow team to give the Samadhi to another team. Jon and Sabrina reveal that the Purple team will be receiving the Samadhi. This week, the team who receives the Samadhi (the Purple team) cannot compete in the next Temple mission.moreless
