Well Folks, I've been mulling over the Twist...trying to figure out how on earth it's going to play out and still stay on the normal Timeline of past seasons.
Unless the Twist is a ONE Episode event, it must be correlated with the normal Survivor Timeline...or so it seems to me! :
Here's a couple of ideas:
Scenario 1: The competitions eliminate X number of players completely from the game. Instead of having TC(s), the challenges would get rid of SEVEN players this week? (6 representing the 6 from Tribe3, PLUS 1 peep who would normally be booted.) That way, the game would STAY w/in the normal Survivor timeline.
Scenario 2: Three tribes compete. Let's say Drake wins. Morgan & Tribe3 lose. The two losing tribes attend TC together with 11 people. Instead of voting off ONE, they vote off FOUR, leaving 7 people from the two losing tribes. Seven, PLUS 5 Drakes, begin Ep8 and the Merge with 12 people. At TC, instead of voting off ONE, they each vote off THREE. They write down THREE names! With 3 more booted, we're back on schedule as Ep9 begins with 9 peeps. The one voted out in Ep9 is the 1st Jury member...and so on.
Am I way off the wall with these scenarios?
Does anyone have other ideas on how the Twist is going to work with the Timeline?
Ok...my head is spinning from all this figuring! argh!
Now I must go do the Scurvy Dog Quiz, which is throwing me for a loop this week!! :-\ :
