1) “Outorganize, outclean, outgather” – This was what Albert said when he tried convincing Sophie to oust Edna instead of Dawn or Whitney. Another good plan? Yes. But has it worked out successfully? No. Therefore, it’s still useless.
None of Albert’s plans since finding the hidden immunity clue in their camp came true. Albert is one of the most creative strategists in history, there’s no doubt about it, but it looks like he’s just trying to overplan or he’s making plans at the wrong time.
After watching this episode, it made me realize Albert was very lucky to escape the vote. He stayed another day on the island because Coach and his puppets allowed him to.
2) Three-person Duel & 2 down! – I was rooting for Jim or Keith even though I knew Ozzy’s chances of winning a duel is high. The way the scenes were edited, it tried to make the situation more exciting.
It really looked like Keith was close to winning and Ozzy would lose. But it’s hard to put an inspired Ozzy down. For this win, it’s just making sense if I’ll say this season’s Redemption Island is exclusively made for him the moment he took down streaking Christine. Who knows? Ozzy destroys everyone’s expectations and he’ll take home the title instead of Coach.
3) Predictable Finale or Just For Now? – The finale is coming in two or three episodes and the exciting season for eight episodes start to become a little predictable. I gave praises to Sophie’s efforts for winning two Individual Immunity Challenges in a row but it’s still doubtful if she’ll win the title after ignoring Albert’s plans. Also, with Dawn and Whitney in Redemption Island against Ozzy, I know what to expect. Hopefully, a new leaf of excitement and thrill will surface in a couple of weeks.
Episode Rating: 8 of 10 stars!
