"It's Human Nature" - An unlikely betrayal within an alliance puts one castaway on the defense, while another tribe member concocts an elaborate story to gain an advantage in the game.

Meow! Let the cat fight commence.

And Kat has to vote for one of them!

OMG Tarzan's farewell was awesome. Stay Tuned!

His vote is a total wildcard.

Meh... sort of predictable. I really wish they would have blindsided Chelsea just to keep it interesting. Kim is just sailing along, she's got everyone convinced they are her BFF and she's eating like a queen.

I thought for sure when Chelsea made the reference to Kat and who to take on a reward... taking her two perceived F3... that she was a goner. Christina should have kept her mouth shut and she would have had a meal... AND Kim should have been left at camp to control fallout.

I am happy Sabrina survived. I thought she would be going this week after the previous one.

I didn't see Jeff mention anything about it being the last time the idol is playable.

Kim continues to be awesome. Kat continues to be clueless and vapid.

Christina is still just there, Alicia is still irrelevant, and Chelsea is too emotionally attached.

I think Sabrina wins if she gets there, Kim wins against any other combination, and if those two don't make the FTC, I will be so shocked that I won't even care who wins.

KIM IS MAGIC.

I love how everyone was like "Kim is amazing and can look into your soul and convince you of anything but she's totally on MY side."

I don't really have any thoughts other than KIM IS MAGIC, to be honest.

Mike flipping Tarzan the bird was uncalled for. Bad sport. He was outwitted and outplayed and he's too vain to admit it.

Man, Troyzan and Kat really are two peas in a pod. Bitter, party of two? Or three, if Michael's flip-off was any indication?

I knew Tarzan was toast from the cold open, and it was cemented when Kim and Alicia compared notes after the former returned from the reward. Kat being so sure that Chelsea was getting the boot when her first (and only) vote came up was just the icing on the cake for me. Later, loser. Go pretend to be Tarzan somewhere else.

I can't believe it. Her delusions aside, I actually kind of . . . liked Alicia tonight. Especially when she and Kim were kicking themselves for buying Tarzan's BS. Huh. Imagine that.

But on to the best news of the night:

ALL-FEMALE FINAL FIVE! WE'VE GOT AN ALL-FEMALE FINAL FIVE HERE! WHOOOOOOOO!

Yes, at this point, I'd be happy with any of these five women winning this Sunday. Any one of them would make me content enough to last me the entire summer. Kim has run this game from the get-go. Chelsea has played a decent challenge-heavy game. Sabrina has shown a good social game and a fine ability to talk to and deal with people. Alicia has proven herself to be very shrewd in her game. And Christina has hung on when it's mattered the most. Very, very good F5!

She can use it at next TC, which she stated "I will save it and use it to get myself to the F4"

I've given up on Chelsea flushing out Kim's HII a long time ago. She's a lemming, joyously scampering to the cliff.

But Sabrina? She has progressively disappointed me this season. Why has she not realized that Kim needed to be taken out? What is she waiting for? How does she imagine FTC going? If she thinks she's so strong, why does she not imagine one of the other stronger contestants would want to take her out?

I agree. Kim has this thing in the bag. And as someone who loves twists, turns, and underdogs, I'm bummed out.

Kim deserves to win, but nevertheless: sigh.

Love, love, love it. For the first time in Survivor history a female top five. My husband and son don't watch but they heard me whooping. Son: so they voted all the men out? Husband: so it's an all chick final?

No longer any danger of Chris Daugherty 2.0. As Jiffy said (and how it must have cost him) "may the best woman win."

And once again, my girl Kim had a calm certitude as to how the vote would go, and maintained a complete poker face when the Idol was mentioned in FTC. Her mesmerizing qualities are beginning to be explained--apparently she has hypnotic, angelic blue eyes.

Did I mention that I loved it? Some of you will say that it was boring but to me I am riveted and on the edge of my seat waiting to see how Kim plays out the end game and wins.

Playing both sides is a dangerous game. It will be interesting if Kim take the easy choice of Alicia and Christina to the F3. Or if she does the "stupid" thing (according to Alicia) and takes Sabrina and Chelsea. If she does that I think Sabrina wins.

Kat has a gold medal bitchface.

It's a shame the broadcast is all about the surprise ending now, because I really, really want to see how much of the "behind the scenes" talk was about Tarzan's duplicity and how much was about breaking up Kim and Chelsea. Evidently Kim appealed to Alicia's vanity, which will always beat out Alicia's (underrated, but let's not get crazy) common sense.

I usually hate a bitter jury, but I think Kim can handle it.

Maybe Christina's thing for Alicia is Stockholm Syndrome.

So far, Kim is as good as that soft porn guy from one of the early seasons - Brian H.? He was more emotionless than Kim, but had everyone convinced he was their best friend. I thought he stretched it a little too far by taking that useless guy with him to the final two because I think he could have beat anyone on that jury. Both are also good in challenges. Brian was good at camp work too. I do not know much about Kim's camp work ethic but it seems like camp work in the recent survivors doesn't seem as important as gifts seem more plentiful.

Normally, I liked to support the underdog but after this episode, I want to see Kim win. she deserves it. And if she doesn't win it, I hope she takes Sabrina and Chelsea. No way I want to see that nasty piece of work Alicia in the final 3. That idiot doctor not only betrayed the guys, but his strategy didn't advance him to the final 5 either. He overdid the talking. Alicia is stupid because she actually thought he woudl take Sabrina? Christina is an idiot for pretty much guaranteeing she would be on Chelsea's shit list by squealing too easy. God, now I am beginning to understand why she gets picked on so much.

I definitely want ot see Sabrina and Kim in the final 3. And then Chelsea or Christina as #3. Christina doesnt deserve to be there , but at least her presence would at least make Alicia's head explode.

Alicia has proven herself to be very shrewd in her game. And Christina has hung on when it's mattered the most. Very, very good F5!

Alicia may be shrewd but I will never forgive her for the way she cuddled up to Colton and for the comments she made about her special ed kids. I think she's disgusting and I would hate to see her win. And Christina has done absolutely nothing to justify winning although I guess you can say hanging on is the name of the game. But I would be very disappointed if either of those two win.

He isn't exactly the only poor sport on the jury. We have to also remember that it contains a hacked-off party girl and a dude named 'Troyzan' who's not thrilled that he can't vote for a man at Final Tribal. At least the old nutbag in the blue banana hammock knew why they felt like that.

So true. It always amazes me, season after season, that others don't take out the person who's running the game. Now THAT'S a blindside.

Kat was wiping away tears when it was revealed that Tarzan had her undies on his head. Granted, that was a weird thing for him to do, but God she is so emotionally immature and fragile. Why did she leave any clothes at camp? Oh yeah, because she didn't think she was going to be voted out that night. Aren't blindsides fun and exciting?!

Mike giving the finger? Oh wow, that'll show 'em.

Just give Kim the check now. I finally figured out who she reminds me of - Tracey Pollen, Michael J. Fox's wife.

Well, now we know. It's not the bikini top, it's Alicia that's disgusting. Stupid thing still believes she's in charge of anything. Bwahaha.

Enlightenedbum said it best. Scary how everyone sees how Kim can make anyone believe anything but they think she is truthful to them.

FTC is going to be a parade of "my question is you suck". What a bunch of sour sorry asses.

Kim just cannot lose.

PaulAllanJones, I agree, but Mike showed it to the world. Troyzan and Kat can make faces till the cows come home. I am dying to see Ponderosa clips of this.

I am betting Kat asks for her tank top and panties back. Guess she left all her stuff at camp figuring she'd be back. HA!!!

Kim CAN lose if she makes it to F4 and doesn't win immunity. Whoever wins that final immunity is in control of their own destiny and if they don't get rid of Kim they deserve to lose it all to her.

That cooing lovebird thing was gross. I hope they both lose, but it does look like Kim has it locked.

Alicia/Christina Stockholm Syndrome is as good an explanation as any. Wierd karma.

Tarzan really lit the fire of thinking "who can I beat??"

It's been a good season overall. Hantz-free and that C got medivaved. Pagonging, but not gloatingly so.

I was laughing with terror! Why is something so unholy so funny?

I wonder if anyone followed up with Chelsea about Christina breaking her word, because that could have sunk her and Kim both. It's kind of incredible how freely Chelsea will speak about things she isn't supposed to know.

Pagongings are usually more boring. Kim is doing all this without a hardcore alliance as such -- Chelsea should be it, but Kim obviously feels otherwise -- and yet she's skated the entire way. Even when they all voted against a common enemy, she wasn't it. Maybe she is magic.

I don't think Alicia is shrewd. I think she is delusional and stuck on herself. She believes she is the greatest player in the game and is controlling all the moves. We know that is not true. Her delusions leave a good opening for Kim, though, to play on them and get Alicia to take the lead and be blamed for taking out players that threaten Kim (Sabrina and Chelsea). I think this is what we will see happen in the next two episodes. Kim will also play her idol in the next episode and argue convincingly to the jury that she knew it was either her or Chelsea/Sabrina because they were the biggest threats.

I think that was the densest episode so far - by way of strategy and just how much "talk" we got. At a few points I was actually loosing track of the "I'm with her, but she thinks that he and she are going to get to the end, but I'm still hoping that she think I'm with her... because I'm not!" I feel like a lot of time the misdirection and fluff is filled with less talk and more panties on the head.

Speaking of: what the eff (damn near dropped the f-bomb). On what planet did Tarzan think that was a good idea? I honestly think he arrived there a somewhat fragmented old man, but at this point he seriously cracked. The "BITCH... how DARE you win" was genuine and frankly a little frightening. He needed to get voted out just for the sake of his mental and emotional well being.

Kat crying actually touched me a bit. Young girl who finds out some crazy old dude she has shared a camp with was wearing her panties on his head... that would freak me out too. What is worse is finding that crazy old shit at Pandora with me. That place went from being pretty awesome and laid back to just that crusty weird vibe.

I'm digging the final five. So long as alicia and chelsea are at the bottom I'm good... I'd like to see a play between Kim and Sabrina. I think Kim is playing a better game and deserves to win (according to the edit), but a FTC with those two would be nail biting!

Oh my gosh, was that ever awesome. Just the first 10 or so minutes before the RC had me freaking out all over the place.

First Tarzan finally reveals what heís actually planning, and it seems like a good plan, and Kim seems to be buying it, and oh crap, Tarzan could win Survivor!

Then he reveals his true alliance with Alicia, and sheís fully on board, and even questions Kim, and Christina is apparently with them, and oh crap, Alicia could win Survivor!

And then Chelsea has a strategic convo with Christina, who blabs to Kim and others, and Kim blabs to Chelsea, and Kimís strategy now is to play both sides, and oh crap, Kimís gone tonight!

Then Chelsea wins the reward challenge, picks Sabrina (fine) and KIM (oh, CRAP), and Iím quivering on the floor. Chelseaís gone, Kimís going to get told whatís what, itís going to be a Christina/Alicia/Tarzan finale.

And then Kim does that thing that she does. Firms things up with Sabrina and Chelsea (for the moment), and then plays Alicia like a drum. Maybe it is her eyes. Maybe they have magical powers. And I adore Sabrina for mentioning it, but Sabrina. If you know this about her eyes and charm and magical powers, perhaps you might want to possibly think about booting her? But no, the eyes are too strong. She effortlessly threw Tarzan under the bus in the best way possible (comparing notes, and yet no one does that about her!), without breaking a sweat, everything once again went exactly how she wanted it to go, and I just have to bow before her. And her blue eyes.

In other news, did you know that Alicia is ďowningĒ the social game? Because she is. She told me herself.

Also, Kat continues to be a brat, although I sort of laughed a lot when she got teary over Tarzan wearing her underwear on his head.

Loved this episode. Love this season. Canít wait for Sunday! Obviously Iím rooting for Kim, but I still pretty much adore Sabrina, and would be happy with her winning. I've always just been 'eh' on Chelsea, Iím more and more seeing why the other people there donít like Christina, and the less said about Alicia, the better. But at least it wonít be Tarzan!
