13: The Final Four (Air date: Two-hour special, January 10, 2002; filmed
August 16-18, 2001)
X F4 IC winner: Lex. We did predict MamaKim would do well at Fallen Comrades, and Lex did almost pull it off.
F4 boot: Tom
X F3 IC winner: Lex. Okay, who in their right mind saw MamaKim winning a physical challenge?
X F3 boot: Ethan. Again, painfully close, and yet so far. Guess Lex really was the new Keith.
Second place: MamaKim
X Sole Survivor: Lex, 5-2. Right tally, right opponent, wrong winner.
13a Final four IC: Lex wins,
Tom is booted, 2-2, due to prior
votes. Just ignore that tally part.
Boot: Tom. We don't buy Lex wanting to cut Tom's throat, especially if Lex is immune - why bother? Lex made a pact on his sons that he wouldn't vote against Tom, and while Tom has betrayed the spirit of the agreement, neither he nor Lex has betrayed the letter of it. And we don't see Lex doing so. Ethan is the swing vote here, he could go with either MamaKim, and vote against Tom, or stick with the guys and boot MamaKim. We now suspect the former. Why? First, it makes strategic sense for Ethan to do so, since his chances in the F2 are much better against either MamaKim or Lex than against Tom. Second, Tom will not know who cast the second vote - Lex or Ethan, and will probably suspect Lex. Third, a neighbor of Tom's posted way back at the end of August that Tom finishes fourth, on Surviiivor.com's message board. Both KimP and Teresa indicated there was a surprise still to come, and this is where it most likely occurs. Teresa specifically said it didn't surprise her, since she'd lived with the four Borans for so long and saw how they interacted, but it will surprise us, because of Mark Burnett's editing. That would be the mini-alliance of MamaKim and Ethan.
13b Final three IC: LEX wins
again, and chooses MamaKim for the final two.
Evidence for: (1) The rumor that Lex's son told people that his dad won the show - at least indicates Lex's son thinks he made the final two. None too compelling, we admit.
Jury vote: LEX
Here, MamaKim's betrayal of her will come back to bite MamaKim: LEX
That's LEX winning
in a landslide, 5-2. Nice work Lex, you earned it.
On the other hand, if Ethan wins, he will almost assuredly opt for MamaKim. At most, that will cost him Lex's, and maybe Brandon's vote. If so, that would shake down as an Ethan landslide
But screw it - we have nothing to go on, and we're usually wrong. We'll go with what we want to happen: Lex winning. Even though the rest of the world wants Ethan. On to S4...
