Survivor Buzz: Episode 8 Interactive Recap
Posted on Nov 7, 2013 10:55am

We have a merged tribe-- and all bets are off! There's new tribe alliances, old tribe alliances, and couples together. What will happen?

The Galang tribe has a pow wow and make a final 5 deal with themselves plus Aras. Monica is not too happy about being the fifth person in the alliance of two family members-- will she go to a different alliance?

The Redemption Island duel is upon us! The goal is to stay handing on for as long as possible. Re-live the duel here:

Laura M. is back in the game and fulfills her promise to her daughter, Ciera. But how do you think this will shake things up with the new merged tribe?

Now that the tribes are merged, anything goes! "This is where Survivor really becomes Survivor," says Hayden. Aras wants to go Galang strong with the remaining original Monica, Gervase, Tyson, Tina, Aras plus Vytas and Katie as their loved ones. But will that work?

Meanwhile, Tyson looks for the idol-- and finds it! He doesn't want to share this info with ANYONE.

Camp is rampant with different alliances attempting to be formed-- and many of the castaways feel the same way-- they want to be on the right side of the numbers! The very first individual immunity challenge of the season is a memory challenge! Watch the challenge again here, where brothers Aras and Vytas face off in the end:

Now that tribal council is among them, Aras wants to split the votes between Laura and Ciera. Another plan around camp is the group of Gervase, Tyson, Hayden, Caleb, Ciera, Monica, and Laura M vote for Aras. Anything could happen at tribal today. No matter what it will be a blindside.

Aras is voted out! Tina, Katie and Vytas on the outs with the side of the numbers. Will this change next week? Tune in Wednesday at 8/7c to find out!
