Episode Summary

EDIT
Tide Pull
AIRED:

The next morning, J.D. meets the remaining teams near their huts, and gives Mike and Keetin a note left from the Red team. Within the note, Jacquelynn and Phil write that they can't wait to see the Green team go home next, and that they are leaving their Discipline pyramid piece with the Blue team, Christa and Scooter. That gives the Blue team two pyramid pieces, while the Purple team holds the lead with three.

Although Mike and Keetin seem to laugh off the note in front of everyone, they reveal their true thoughts to the camera. Mike worries that other teams may begin to dislike them because the Red team accused them of being backstabbers. Meanwhile, Max, of the Brown team, tells the cameras that the Blue team wants the Green, Yellow, and Brown teams out.

The teens later meet on the beach to compete in their next Endurance mission, "Tide Pull". In this Endurance mission, one member from each team paddles their boat as far as they can away from the shore within 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, the partners remaining on the beach can pull in any team they want. That team is then eliminated from the competition.
After 30 seconds, the Yellow, Brown, Purple, and Green teams immediately run to the Blue team's rope, and begin pulling Christa's boat in. At the same time, Scooter (Blue), and Michelle (Orange) race to pull in Calley's boat. Calley, of the Yellow team, is pulled in first, and the Yellow team is eliminated. Close behind is the Blue team. With two teams out, the Brown and Purple teams run to the Orange team's rope, and begin pulling in Tyler's boat. The Orange team is soon eliminated, as well as the Green team's, who's boat got caught with Orange's. The Purple and Brown team's are still in the game, and Annie and Max race to pull in their competition's boat. Max quickly pulls in Jeff's boat, making the Brown team (Max and Jenna) the winners. The Brown team receives the Strength pyramid piece, and the privilege of handing the Samadhi off to a rival team.

After the competition, the Blue team is obviously concerned about why the other teams chose to eliminate them from the competition.
At the same time, Calley is having frustrations of her own, with Shep. She wants the Purple team gone, and is angry that her alliances keep changing their minds about who to send to the Temple of Fate, and that Shep won't fill her in on what the other teams are doing.
Later, Max comes to the Blue team with a proposition. He asks Scooter to promise that if the Blue team does not receive the Samadhi, they will not send the Brown team to the Temple of Fate if they win the next Temple mission. Scooter agrees. However, when Max and Keetin voice their concern about Max's deal, they ask Max to change the agreement. Max returns to a very confused Scooter, and asks him to not send the Green or Yellow teams if Blue does not receive the Samadhi. Although he is positive they would send him up, Scooter agrees.

Later at the rock, when questioned by J.D., Shep admits the Yellow, Green, and Brown teams are working together in the game. Also, Calley breaks down and reveals that she feels left out and picked on by "certain" people in the game.
When it is time to give the Samadhi away, Max and Jenna reveal they are giving the Samadhi away to the Blue team. Unsurprised, Scooter and Christa break the Samadhi, only to find a note inside that tells them they will be delayed 10 seconds in starting the next Temple Mission.
On the way back to the beach, Christa and Scooter share very different views on getting the Samadhi. Christa is positive the Blue team has no chance in the competition, while Scooter believes ten seconds will only delay them from winning.moreless
