As we all thought, last week was a straight up episode with no swap featuring a PB&J date. Typical. Let’s see how we Nostradamus this shit this week. The answers may not surprise you.
Andy: Rolling my predictions over from last week in what may be an attempt to ensure I get at least one boot right this season. Last week I picked Lucy to hammer the point about the unfortunate boot pattern that had formed. This week, I do it based on the preview that shows an invisible girl taking over. Luckily, it’ll just be a coincidence not worth discussing now that Paul broke the streak. 3 for 3 is a problem. 3 out of 4 is just because. As for the Millennials, I don’t think Figgy is as safe as she thinks she is, nor do I think that the battlelines are cemented. Keeping Figgy and Taylor was necessary for Jay and Michelle to build a proper power structure then. With the extra time they’ve been granted, I think they can now do it without them. Without her especially.
John: We saw Lucy in the preview, which is a reminder that Lucy exists. That can’t bode well. If Gen X is doing the voting, Lucy goes home. If The Youths are sent to tribal council, I think Adam’s appeal to Michaela ends up bringing her back to his side. And then the bizarre coalition of the nerds, the weirdos, and the strangely Puritanical takes out Figgy.
Matt: This can’t be long because I need to sleep and I’m traveling tomorrow, but if Gen X lets just say Lucy because hey she spoke! and if Millennials lets say Figgy because she continues to act in a way that demonstrates who is clearly the core 4.
Mark: Usually a preview is a bit of a misdirection, but I think the rise of Chairwoman Lucy after she finally spoke this week means she’s setting herself up for a conflict boot when Gen X loses immunity. The boot always gets to speak before they go, and production gracefully letting three words slip spells doom. Nice work on the girls alliance, Jessica.
If the Millennials shock again and lose, I’m sticking with Adam as the boot. He’s smart, on the bottom, and probably won’t find that hidden idol yet again. In a 9-person tribe, a strong four only needs one person to flip, after all.
Emma: Given that Taylor had the “I have my girl with me, nothing can possibli go wrong”, I think it’s time that Figgy gets sent packing. Even though the season is early, we’ve been seeing the editors set up little story arcs, instead of having a downfall confined to one episode.
That’s why I don’t think Lucy is actually going home (this time) and Gen X will actually just revert to the status quo and vote out CeCe.
