Boy, what a great twist. It was a classic Survivor switch-up, with Jeff offering each tribe a chance, before the Reward Challenge, to jump ship and switch tribes. For awhile, I was positive that Aitu was solid, but as it turns out, Candice is a sneaky player and she jumps ship, leaving Yul's alliance in the lurch.
If that wasn't ridiculous enough, Jonathan follows her, leaving Aitu with four members and Raro with six. It's a great moment for the season, and probably one of the better shake-ups in Survivor history, up until this point. However, the ramifications aren't seen in this episode, as Aitu bonds and whoops Raro in both challenges. I'm a huge fan of underdogs, so when Aitu beat Raro in both challenges, I was happy.
Things get really interesting on the Raro side. While it seems logical to get rid of Jonathan, since he's a loose end that doesn't really fit, Nate brings up a great point: Jonathan will never be able to switch back to Aitu's alliance. He's indebted to them, so it's unlikely that he'll ever flop again. As a result, Brad, who has always sort of been a fringe player in Raro, gets the boot. Even more surprising is the fact that Brad is a member of the jury, something that is likely to affect his decision in terms of who he would vote for at the end.
At this point, it seems like Raro will be able to simply pick off Aitu members one by one. However, that group is solid, and Yul still has the hidden immunity idol. If those members can win individual immunity, and Yul uses his idol wisely, the tables can turn yet again.
