Survivor 31 Second Chance – Week 7 Live Blog

Tonight a new episode of Survivor: Second Chance airs tonight on CBS. Read a live recap and join the discussion here.

Last week Woo was voted out, and tonight the tribes will merge. How will all the past alliances and relationships play out tonight? Who will win immunity and who will be voted out? Let’s find out!

The morning after tribal council, Savage feels betrayed by the vote. He’s upset that he wasn’t included in on the plan, and he’s even more upset with Kass. He tries to make amends with his tribe mates to secure his spot going forward, but he’s still feeling very bitter. Spencer tells Savage he is willing to work with him, but he’s aware Savage was just leading a plan to blindside him. Nonetheless, Spencer says he will work with whomever will help him in this game. He didn’t think he would work with Kass after their bad blood in Cagayan, but sees that maybe he has to rely on her this time.

The tribes get tree mail and learn the tribes are going to merge. They are surprised since there are still thirteen of them left in the game, and the merge doesn’t usually happen this early. Savage is thrilled that the tribes are merging and that he can reunite with his old Bayon allies. Ciera is worried about going to the merge with Savage since they just went against his wishes in the last tribal council. Tasha is pondering what to do about finally being reunited with her former Cagayan Brains tribe members Kass and Spencer.

In the afternoon, the tribes officially merge. Ta Keo moves to the Bayon beach, and they all enjoy a feast together. Wentworth is glad to make the merge since she didn’t in her original season. While eating, Kass tells anyone willing to listen how Woo was voted out and how she saved Spencer. People are surprised Kass saved Spencer due to their past history. After the feast, Savage talks privately with Jeremy. They want to form a majority alliance of seven people. Meanwhile, Wentworth and Kass are having a similar conversation. Kass tells Wentworth that they have Abi and Spencer for sure, and Wentworth feels pretty good about Ciera, Keith, and Joe. That should be enough, but Wentworth believes Spencer and Joe will be the swing votes that decide which side will be in the majority.

Savage realizes Joe is a swing vote, and he approaches him on the beach to join the Bayon alliance. Joe simply tells him he will talk to everyone to feel them out. Wentworth has a similar conversation with Spencer. Spencer realizes that he and Joe are in the middle. The two of them finally talk about what to do. They are unsure and not fully committed to one side yet.

Later on while it is raining, everyone is huddled together in the shelter. Stephen recites a poem, which amuses them. Afterwards, Kass believes she can pull people into her side. She approaches Tasha, but Tasha has doubts about Kass. Tasha lies about how tight the Bayon alliance is, and Kass knows she is lying. In her confessional, Kass says that she was trying to be sincere with Tasha, and she is disappointed that Tasha has no interest in working with her. Kass says Tasha has just unleashed the beast by letting her know she doesn’t trust her.

Kass tries talking with Tasha the next day. However, Tasha candidly tells Kass she doesn’t trust her. Kass tells Tasha that it’s game on now. The two of them go back to the shelter and get into a heated conversation in front of everyone. Kass says that Tasha was giving her false stories about the Bayon alliance, but Tasha says she has no reason to tell her the truth anyway. Kass tells the whole tribe she will be voting for Tasha tonight. Suddenly, Ciera gets into it too. She wants to create paranoia in the Bayon alliance. She lies and says that Savage and Woo were planning on targeting Jeremy and Joe once the tribes merged. Savage denies this, but Ciera is adamant about what she’s saying. Savage is now very angry with Ciera.

It’s time for the immunity challenge. They will have to balance a ball on a round platform while standing on a beam. As the challenge progresses, they will have to move farther down the beam. The last person standing will win immunity. This challenge was played before in Cagayan, and Tasha won it. Will she win again? The challenge begins. A few seconds in, Stephen is the first person to drop. Nine minutes later, Keith drops, and he’s followed by Ciera and Kimmi. The first part of the challenge is over, and now the remaining people will have to balance on a narrower part of the beam. As round 2 begins, Abi drops right away. Kass is the next person to drop, and she’s followed by Wiglesworth and Wentworth. Round 3 begins afterwards with Savage dropping the ball seconds after it starts. Tasha is the next to drop and she’s quickly followed by Jeremy. Only Spencer and Joe remain. Spencer played this challenge back in Cagayan, but he gets second place as he drops the ball. Joe wins immunity!

After tribal council, Savage wants Kass and Ciera to be the targets. Between the two, he really wants Ciera gone since she tried putting a target on his back earlier in the day. However, when he talks to Joe, Stephen, and Wiglesworth, they tell him they want Kass gone first. Jeremy approaches Spencer to vote out Kass too. Spencer says in his confessional that he wants to save Kass, but doesn’t believe that he can. Even Keith is on board with voting out Kass too, despite aligning with her earlier. Kass, Abi, Ciera, and Wentworth are aware they are on the outs. They believe the vote will be split, so they just want at least five votes. Kass then approaches Spencer about the five of them voting out Tasha. Spencer tells her he is on board, but admits in his confessional he is unsure about what to do.

It’s time for tribal council. Kass says she has been playing a more honest game, but Tasha calls her out. Ciera defends Kass and says there is truth to what Kass is saying since Tasha did tell Kass Bayon is no more. Tasha tells Ciera to not spin it around that will be advantageous for them. Jeff asks Joe his thoughts on the conflict, and Joe says it will be an easy vote since Ciera, Kass, and Tasha are seemingly on the chopping block. Ciera doesn’t like that statement, and she says people are not playing to win if they are just going to cast an easy vote. She is fired up and tells everyone should be playing to win instead of just coasting by. Jeff asks Spencer his thoughts, and he says that tonight’s vote is simply tonight’s vote, but the game can change going forward. Jeff says that is a big statement. Jeff notes that usually a group stays together, but he says Spencer is claiming that the game won’t be that simple this time. Stephen agrees and thinks the game is evolving with all these second chance players. The game can change and nothing has to be set in stone. Spencer says he will not be surprised to see plans change going forward. Ciera agrees, and she reiterates that everyone should be playing to win.

It’s time for the vote. We see Tasha vote for Kass, Jeremy vote for Ciera, and Kass vote for Tasha. Which of the three will be leaving tonight?

Jeff reads the votes. The first vote is for…

Kass

Ciera

Tasha

Kass

Ciera

Tasha

Kass

Ciera

Savage

Kass

Ciera

Kass

Kass

Kass is voted out and the first member of the jury. While we hear Kass talk about how she tried to play the game differently and form real connections with people, we see that Abi and Kass were the two votes for Tasha. Ciera was the throwaway vote for Savage, whereas everyone else voted for either Ciera or Kass.

And that wraps up tonight’s episode of Survivor: Second Chance. Thanks for reading! Feel free to post your thoughts on the episode in the comments section below, and come back next week for another live recap.
