Reward challenge: Obstacle SuCha - Terry wins Family visit, exiles Danielle?
This would be one of ChillOne's earliest game-play spoilers, so we'll hand the floor over to him (in excerpt, at least):
"- 1) Military guy [Terry] The intel is that this guy is really kicking ass in the challenges. He wins the family reward challenge....
- 2) Black Girl [Cirie] a nurse. Awarded a family visit from Military guy (see's her husband).
- 3) A very small man [Shane?] Awarded a family visit from Military guy (see's his son).
- 4) Blonde girl [Danielle] does not get along with [Terry]. When all are spending time with their families, she is sent to "penalty island". Does not get to see her mom."

Later, SurvivorView reported that Aras's brother, Vytas, was "missing" around the time of the family visit. So he's a potential visitor for Aras. Except for the minor detail that Aras's visitor is female. So, uh, scratch that. But for ChillOne, the visitors all appear spot-on.

In support of ChillOne's spoiler, the TV Guide description mentions: "A strained relationship between two of the castaways leads to a fight.... [A]nd a reward challenge involves a message from home." Sounds like a match to us.

Of course, even though ChillOne has already told us that Terry wins, there's still the small matter of the challenge itself. It appears to be some sort of "super challenge," revisiting previous challenge elements, such as carrying snakes (and fish), digging up and carrying pillows, crawling under obstacles. Basically, a challenge designed for Terry to win.

Exile: Danielle? Aras?
See above.

Although... the fight between Aras and Terry in the post-Ep11 preview is clearly about being sent to Exile Island over and over again, as is made clear by the wording of the CBS press release: "Tension runs high between two survivors and, in a heated argument, one spots a major weakness in the other. Can this weakness be used against them, and will one survivor finally have what they need to take out their biggest threat?"

So it's formally possible that Aras, and not Danielle, could be the exile this week (again).

Immunity challenge: Something on poles - Terry wins again
Apart from Shane falling off his pole, we can't determine much from the available caps. Aras and Danielle are obviously pulling something out of the water, but apart from that, there's not much to go on. Oh well, as ChillOne has said, Terry wins again, anyway. (Supporting evidence in boot section, below, as well).

BOOT: Shane
We've been told that Shane is booted in this episode. Not sure how the alliances rearrange to come to that outcome, or if they do, even. But it does seem fitting that this should come immediately after Shane finally gets to see his son again.

And of course, lest you were at all concerned that ChillOne's spoilers might be off this week, CBS helpfully shows Terry wearing the immunity necklace both on the hike to and at Tribal Council. So long, Crazy Shane.
