Ep.1 F19 IC: Blue Lagoon Bustle

Ep.1 F19 IC: Blue Lagoon Bustle

Sandra sits out. Mostly as seen in Blood vs. Water. Tribes must push a boat into the water, paddle out to a floating station, where one person (Sarah, Rob) jumps off and unties a bag. They then paddle to a series of water obstacles, where everyone disembarks and must cross the obstacles (crates, roller, net), and go to the beach. One person (Yul, Adam) opens the bag, removing three discs with numbers on them, and uses them to solve a combo lock. Once open one person (Tyson/Wendell; Jeremy) tosses rings at three paddles. First tribe to land all three wins. Dakal has a huge lead, but blows it, and Sele wins, thanks to Jeremy's ring tossing skills.

Ep.1 idol: Sandra

In her first day on Edge of Extinction, Natalie receives a quest, directing her to the last place she can see the sunset, in order to earn a fire token. She climbs to the top of the island, and finds an idol (good for 3 Tribals) she must "sell" to someone on the IC-losing tribe, for the low, low price of 1 fire token. She offers it to Sandra, who happily accepts.

While collecting wood together, Ben offers Denise advice for finding idols. They both look, and Denise finds one. It turns out to be a split idol, where Denise has to give someone else half of it by sundown, or else it loses its power. After Ben suggest they could use that half to build an alliance with someone, Denise gives Adam the second half.

Natalie and Amber find a clue on Edge that talks about reflection. They wander aimlessly all over the island before giving up.

She sells it Jeremy (of course) for one fire token.

Ep.2 IC: Draggin' the Dragon

Ep.2 RC/IC: Draggin' the Dragon

As originally seen in Cagayan's Ep1 RC/IC. Seven people must push a heavy cart along a twisty track, stopping at three stations where one person (Tyson; Ben) knocks a key off a high pole, which unlocks a heavy crate of puzzle pieces. Once all three crates are on the cart, it must be disassembled, pushed through a barrier, then reassembled and pushed to the puzzle station. There, two people (Sandra/Sophie; Rob/Denise) must solve a three-part, vertical circular dragon puzzle. Dakal takes a huge lead heading into the puzzle. Rob forces Denise to organize the pieces before starting on the second part of the puzzle, making Sele fall even further behind. Dakal wins easily, also gets a spice rack.

Ep.3 advantage: Steal-a-vote

Natalie, Amber, and Danni receive notes wrapped in bamboo with "pretty shells." The note just shows a distinctive tree Natalie and Amber recognize from the top of the island. The three go up there and find a combination lock, and a note telling them they've already received all the info they need. Amber tries numbers from the crates, but Natalie realizes the shells were in groups separated by knots. She counts them, enters the combo, and gets an advantage to sell: A chance to go to the other tribe's camp and grab a vote steal advantage at night. She sells it to Sarah, who (with Tony's camouflaging assistance) sneaks into Sele and gets the advantage from their torches. For this chance, Sarah gives Natalie her one fire token.

Then someone (Wendell; Rob/Ben) must land that in a hook, and the tribe uses it to scale a tower. Finally, two people (Sarah, Sophie; Rob, Michele) must solve a tree puzzle. Dakal gets a huge lead thanks to Wendell and Tony, barely hold on with the puzzle. Dakal wins immunity and chicken kabobs.

Everyone who finishes by sundown will receive one fire token. Natalie sets a speedy pace, and the others try to keep up, except Danni, who opts for a slow-and-steady approach. Ethan faints and requires medical attention, but all four eventually finish. Natalie, Amber, and Danni accompany Ethan on his final trip up and down, in a show of solidarity.

Keys grabbed: Denise-0, Sophie-0, Nick-2, Adam-3, Parvati-0, Kim-1. Once all three keys are grabbed, they swim the boat to a final dock, where two people (Nick/Sarah; Rob/Kim) work a vertical ship's compass puzzle (as seen in the Cagayan F4 IC and David vs. Goliath Ep5 IC, which Nick won).

The Edge of Extinction people learn a new trinket is hidden somewhere on the island. While the others immediately race to the top of the mountain, Tyson discerns from the clue that it's probably near the tide line. He spots it, pretends to pee as cover, and grabs an idol nullifier. He sells it back to Parvati for a fire token, then immediately spends that token on a giant tub of peanut butter (for himself).

When the tank is full enough, a bag of puzzle pieces drops, and two people (Ben, Sophie; Wendell, Michele; Denise, Jeremy) must complete a circular logo puzzle in the dish. Yara takes only one very slow trip with the dish, and has a slight lead heading into the puzzle. They finish it first. Sele and Dakal are neck-and-neck throughout, and complete the puzzle within seconds of each other. Dakal finishes second, sending Sele to Tribal.

While gathering wood, Natalie finds a bottle with a note inside on Edge of Extinction. She reads the note with Parvati, it gives them a riddle. For some reason, they climb to the top of the island, before realizing the last line in the riddle refers to their shelter. After waiting all day to retrieve the advantage from under the shelter, Parvati convinces the last stragglers to look at the sunset, while Natalie retrieves the advantage. It's an Extortion advantage: The person they play it against must pay them as many tokens as they ask for (six), or else that person can't compete in the IC or vote at Tribal. They pick Tony, who miraculously meets their price, with help from Jeremy, Nick, and Ben.
