I'm thinking it's possible that this premiere was a homage to the early seasons. It wasn't about strategy, it was about people struggling to survive in harsh conditions. It was about determining who was really a liability to your tribe and who was really a strength. Jim's vote was supposed to be cut and dry; he was the one person who would not be helping Nakum in the future. The women were the real strength of the tribe, and a vote against Margaret might shatter that depiction of them.Originally Posted by Qboots
Plus, everybody knew that Jim's vote was going to Margaret; apparently he "drew corn" and it ended up being Margaret who would get his vote. So it's not like the tribe needed to see it.
And then there's the more conspiralitical theories. Maybe past votes are coming into play again, or maybe upcoming tribal councils are going to make a point out of having the tribe wonder how unshown votes really went. But really, it seems likely that a vote for Margaret was not shown because it would hurt the editing of the episode as a whole.
