My bet: Somebody says this referring to Brandon.

I agree, and I think I'll go with Phillip as the one to say it.

I find it highly likely that Brandon will have some humble sitdown or confessional after his rage. kid has some serious mood swings

Is it Brenda that has the meltdown or would it be Brandon after his rage?

In a promo I just saw Jeff is with Brandon and has his hands on his shoulders and says "we are having tribal council right now."

My two theories:

The Obvious:
The tribe is pissed at Brandon for trashing the camp, arrive at immunity challenge and announce that they are forfeiting in order to vote out Brandon. They go through with this and Brandon is voted out.

The Far-Fetched but somewhat makes sense:
In order to forfeit immunity it must be a unanimous decision. I do not think Brandon wants to go as he has clearly stated that he will do whatever it takes to win. Phillip puts him up to this shenanigans, has him be all humble and agree to go get voted out. Phillip's alliance blindsides a strong player (Corinne maybe, or Malcolm (please no) or Brenda (please no)).

I honestly can't wait to see what goes down tonight because I could not believe my eyes when I saw previews last week!

I was watching just for TAR commercials, but when Brandon started to self-deteriorate, it jut made me want to watch what was going on in this episode. And this is by far one of the most ummm... ghetto? episodes ever?? The immunity challenge tribal council was the most unorthodox way of voting someone off, but yet kind of funny.

The end credit scene with Brandon's commentary and voting made me want to laugh. :lol:

(What was the immunity challenge anyway?) ???

That has got to be one of the most intense, shocking episodes to date.

By the looks of it, it was the puzzle staircase challenge already used in HvV and (my mind has drawn a blank but I want to say Tocantins)

OMG YES IKR SOMEONE AGREES WITH ME  :wohoo:

Philip talks way too much and he thinks he's the best. I was like way to go man when Brandon brought up how Boston Rob dragged Phil's crazy butt all the way to the final and Philip did nothing to contribute to that alliance. I'll miss Brandon's crazy entertainment, but I'm happy for the Faves that they are in some peace now. And tribe switch next week? Hope that Eddie and Reynold stay together!

Jeff handled that masterfully!

Although that shoulder rub he was giving Brandon was a little creepy.

Has there ever been an "emergency" tribal council like that before? I know there have been a couple of times when a tribe conceded the immunity challenge, but the tribal council was held the way it normally is. What we saw tonight was to say the least, unusual.
My guess is that Phillip has the target on his back now, especially with what was suggested in the preview for next week.

I don't think so unless you count double elimination tribals where they have a quick make do challenge and vote again.

Who says you cannot see something new on Survivor!  :lol3:  I thought Jeff handled it beautifully! He was rubbing Brandon's shoulders to calm him down but also he would have known if Brandon was going to take off and attack Phillip.

I really wish Brandon hadn't blown his mind and could think strategically instead of letting his rage take over. He was right about Phillip and his stupid names for them. He didn't need to dump the food out either.  He could have had the high ground, maybe we would have seen an immediate TC and perhaps Phillip would have gotten the boot! However, I am hoping that this will lead to Phillips downfall as well.  :hoot: :hoot:

I agree with you TL! Brandon should have calmed down and used these tactics to take Phillip out, instead of rage-quitting. It would be a much better episode. But I have to say that Jeff did an awesome job soothing Brandon down and trying to control things before it blew out of proportion.
