I don't like this 2nd Redemption Island twist. They already merged, enough with the RI already! Whoever goes back at this point will have a tremendous advantage as he/she will be the swing vote at a very late stage in the game.
Funny that Ciera wanted her mom to lose. She knew that mom will cramp her game. She's already in a good position, so she's afraid that they will get targeted for being a pair and because Laura is not trustworthy which means that Ciera will not be privy to whatever is really happening in her alliance. Telling her mom not to overthink/overstrategize and just go with the singles alliance original plan was the right thing to do.
Here's my take. I don't think Tyson will go after Vytas immediately. That would be plan B or C. Plan A is to take out one of the women. You don't want the other gender to have a majority because anytime in the game they can band together. So it's going to be either Tina or Laura. Since Laura is in with him (thru Ciera) in taking out the pairs, I think Tina will be the first target. Tina understood this, as you can see she was upset in the next episode saying to someone that they just lost 5 votes in the jury. If Tina wins II, then it will be Laura. This is plain and simple...Laura should not overcomplicate it and Monica need not have to overstate it.
