I cannot believe that Sunday is the finale. Damn! I swear, this Survivor <i>flew</i>...and I'm really going to miss everyone in these threads.
great pirate report, bill. thanks for the read! :clp
She is definitely calm under pressure and doesn't seem to panic or get flustered. You have to give her points for that.

Great report Bill, but I think your wrong about Darrah loosing to any body in F2
Darrah beats Lill 7-0
Darrah beats JFP 6-1, Burton for JFP
Darrah beats Sandra 4-3 Ryno, Tijuana, Lill, for Darrah, and swingman Burton
Ryno no brainer even though she betrayed him slightly
Tijuana no brainer
Lill thought Darrah was #4 of there alliance
Burton is the swingman. He has nothing for both of them other than Darrah may have been considered the #4. He will ultimately make it based on the IC challanges the she beat him head to head.
Darrah has won this, Game, Set, & Match :fortune :biglove Support DISC :biglove
Since Day 1 I tried to rationalize Lillís often irrational behavior, trying to justify why sheís even on this show. But after she did a Savage on Burton, I was convinced that my gut dislike of her was not totally unfounded. Lill has played this game emotionally, by basing her actions on how fellow Survivors had tugged at her heartstrings. With Andrew and Burton, her vote was based on vindictiveness, stemming from her paranoia of betrayal. If Burton had given her the answer that would assure her of an F2 spot, and if after winning the RC camping trip he had picked her company, I bet you Rupertís skirt that Burton would still be on the islands. You see, itís become quite obvious that Lill is not someone to cross because in this game of Survivor she lets her heart rule. Of course, when Lillís heart got broken, Andrew and Burton had to pay the price.
I think that if he had told Lil what she wanted to hear that night, as far as the game goes at least, then she never would have opened up to Darrah and Sandra, which set the chain in motion that led to Burtonís elimination.
In The Early Show, Burton explained that his Lill vote was a result of his pre-TC knowledge that Lill was no longer on his side. So he just did what he had to do.
Burton should not be allowed to make post-eviction speeches, as the old arrogant Burton came out, and I was laughing out loud as he slammed on Lil for breaking alliances. Uhm, who did you vote for last week Burton?
Bill, kudos for another lovely analysis. You can look forward to a nice breather after Sunday!
Thank you, Bill !!!!
Excellent reads and analyses. See you after and during AS Survivor, I hope.
I have only one small disagreement :) do not think Jon is the next likely boot. That's too easy :)
Jon and Darrah ... and maybe even Lil are smart enough to realize that Sandra will probably be the hardest to beat before the jury.
Jon's and Darrah's first choice for F2 seatmate is Lil. As for Lil, Darrah is the only one she will feel she can trust, so she'll attach to her.
Thus it is Sandra, not Jon who MUST win immunity to stay because she is at the top of the hit list. If anybody else wins IC, Sandra will go.
If she doesn't win immunity, she will try to get Darrah out, but Lil won't vote against D ... or Sandra will try to force a tie ( Sandra has no votes against her.)
If Sandra does win immunity, Jon will be the 2nd choice boot, he'll try to turn it but will not succeed because Lil will not vote Darrah.
Thanks again !!

True, maybe he'll just do an "I guess that didn't work" section :)
:clap :clap Great report, Bill, I enjoyed reading it. Thanks for the effort you put into it.
Well, I didn't say that ;) I said she could beat Lil.

Simply because the only way I see Darrah getting there is by winning the final challenge, and choosing Sandra, which means she dumps Lil, and we have seen how Lil responds to such things. But it would be a close vote. No assurances that the Morgans would stay loyal either, as rejected Rhino might jump ship to the perceived better player. I think Tijuana is likely a strong Darrah supporter.
Every season though there folks who vote in ways that surprise you.
