It was a wild night on "Survivor." The favorites are basically toying with the fans at this point, even as they've started turning on one another. With Corinne voted out last week, Malcolm was feeling confident that he could take control of the game from Phillip and his "Stealth-R-Us" alliance. But he made the same mistake Corinne did in talking to Dawn.
By the time they got to tribal council, it was anyone's guess as to what would happen. There was talk of a split vote against Eddie and Reynold to try and flush out the idol Dawn now knew Reynold had. There was also talk of trying to blindside Malcolm as they had done with Corinne.
But when Andrea heard that Malcolm's alliance was targeting her, she lost it and started scrambling to try and save herself. In doing so, she pushed for a "safe" vote against Michael. Still, there was enough nervousness about alliances and counter-alliances at tribal council that Reynold got up to play his hidden immunity idol.
But then, Malcolm did something that actually worked. He convinced Reynold to use the hidden immunity idol on him. Was he actually convinced that they were gunning for him? Ironically, Malcolm was the only person who actually voted for Reynold. And Malcolm got no votes against him, so the idol was successfully flushed. And it was Michael who got the short end of the vote.
Now Malcolm has a truly secret immunity idol that no one knows about. How will this vote change the game? Can Malcolm, Eddie and Reynold find a way to survive? Tune in to "Survivor" on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on CBS to find out.
