Wow, wow, wow! Awesome episode. Yay for Matt winning the challenge on Redemption Island! But it's gonna be really hard for him to win challenge after challenge. I don't think Redemption Island feeds anyone too well.
Yay for Zapatera getting rid of Russell! I never really thought that throwing a challenge was an excellent idea, but if it's to get rid of Russell... That's another story. That was one exciting Tribal Council. I was so sure that Julie would flip to Russell's side! Based on the "promise" and indications she gave him. But no, she stuck to the 6! Great decision on her part. Loved Stephanie and Russell's faces when they saw that they'd been played. And for the first time, we see Russell's torch snuffed!
But somehow, I'm not getting my hopes up. I just have this sneaky feeling that he's gonna beat Matt on Redemption Island. The villain never dies so easily! Geez. Can't wait for next week's episode. Redemption Island has been great so far!
