QUEEN MORGAN DETHRONED — The Unofficial Guide to Survivor: Cagayan Episode 7
Here’s everything you need to know about what happened in Survivor: Cagayan Episode 7 — “Mad Treasure Hunt” – who won the challenges, who was voted of, who played well, and who is on the outs. Feel free to add your notes, thoughts, and questions.
Aired April 9, 2014, covering night 19 through night 22
Reward Challenge winners: LJ, Spencer, Jeremiah, Morgan, & Jefra (grilled meal)
Immunity Challenge winner: Spencer
Voted Out: Morgan – There’s no doubt that Morgan was the safest bet in regards to thinning out the numbers because of her lack of a threat she posed in challenges, but it’s surprising that it seems no one was interested in using her as a final 3 opponent due to her dislikability. It seems like this group is not interested in taking the easy way out and if this vote is any indication, the Final 3 vote is going to be a knock-down, drag-out brawl.
In This Episode:
When we first met Rupert way back in season 7 – way before overexposure made him all but unbearable – one of the first things that made us like him was his willingness to play dirty, when he got rid of everyone’s shoes. What Woo did in throwing Spencer’s pants in the water was dirty, but that’s the kind of move that you need to make sometimes to demoralize your opponent. You can beat them in challenges and vote off their allies, but when you do something like that it can do way more to kick them in the gut.
Spencer was really dumb for not being more aware of his surroundings and allowing the massive “treasure hunt” to happen. And it’s hard not to question his wisdom in not sharing one of his Immunity Idols with Morgan given that she was a solid ally (that’s assuming they knew Morgan would be the target). There’s an argument for saving Idols for yourself, but sharing can definitely have his advantages as demonstrated by Tony and LJ just a few days ago.
Kass demonstrated an almost unbelievable amount of hypocrisy in her criticism of Sarah in the last episode, and she kept it up this week, this time targeting Morgan. Kass very obviously has a problem with anyone not named Kass demonstrating any kind of power or control in this game – not always a fault in and of itself, but very often it’s a good idea to let people’s power trips play out to accomplish what needs to be done before bringing reality crashing down upon them.
Kass’s whining that Morgan lives in the center of the universe is hilariously clueless in that Kass has done nothing but bask in and brag about her status as a game changing free agent who plays so aggressively and chaotic. It’s hard to swallow her claims about banking on people forgiving her and having contingency plans; she made a sudden move and things are working out OK for her at the moment, but no matter what anyone says she is nothing but an untrustworthy flip-flopper at the bottom of the food chain.
