When host Jeff Probst said the latest Tribal Council during Survivor: Game Changers was "unprecedented," he wasn't just blowing smoke.

That's because, for the first time in the series' history, not one but two tribes were tasked with working together to vote out a single castaway—or risk splitting the vote with a rock-draw elimination—in the all-new episode entitled "The Tables Have Turned."

While the Nuku Tribe had numbers on their side, Mana had a secret weapon:

Suffice to say, the ensuing Tribal Council did not disappoint.

Both tribes went in "guns blazing," as Culpepper suggested one of the castaways could potentially turn on their tribe to benefit their own personal game—a "Mexican standoff" of sorts.

But some players, like Sandra, were confident that her teammates would stay loyal to Nuku.

Of course, loyalty has its drawbacks, as Hali pointedly reminded everyone, because their stubbornness could possibly lead to a rock draw.

That's when the conversation devolved into a lot of bickering, whispering, finger-pointing, and, well... it all fell apart from there.

Before long, the castaways were getting up out of their seats to talk strategy with opposing players, starting with JT and Culpepper, followed by Hali and Sandra, and followed by pretty much everyone.

Eventually, both tribes reached a boiling point and decided to vote, uncertain of how it would end.

It's no wonder castaways like Jeff Varner were more than a little nervous about their tribe's chances.

And soil himself he did—metaphorically speaking, that is—as Tai gave his Immunity Idol to Sierra and foiled Nuku's plans.

For Nuku, that also meant saying goodbye to one of their own: Malcolm.

Never let it be said that Survivor: Game Changers isn't living up to its name.
