Reward challenge: Tethered race/ locks puzzle - Aras wins, exiles Terry/Danielle
Finally, the challenge shown way back in the recap episode. It looks like the contestants are tethered to a central rope, and presumably have to race along, clipping in and out around various obstacles. Terry and Aras seem to be wasting valuable time fighting with each other, while Danielle has a modest lead.

From the full 30-second TV ad, it appears there's a lot more to the challenge, including puzzle tables with three locks, and columns of various sea creatures (one with a number on it). Unclear what that's about (perhaps a variation on memorizing a story Probst tells them?), but notably, Aras is at the purple puzzle table. This is important, because we see Cirie gasping in front of a lowered purple flag. This indicates that Aras won the RC (and takes Cirie for reward?). Terry is also shown looking unhappy, not in front of a lowered flag.

Exile: Terry and Danielle?
terry, danielleAt MeSS, Crocophile noted that the shot of Terry and Danielle talking strategy looks like it might be at Exile Island. Wezzie found some shots that appear to have a matching background, and Danielle's clothes appear to match what she's wearing at the RC (and the IC, for that matter). All of which is consistent with Terry and Danielle being exiled. So the RC winner should be either Aras or Cirie (or perhaps both, if they're in pairs).

Immunity challenge: Puzzle challenge - Aras wins
f4 tribal council - aras necklaceIn the absence (thus far) of a web promo, the first glimpse of the IC comes from a couple of weekend 5-sec and 10-sec TV ads, which show an initial sprint (with Cirie in a different outfit than at the IC), ending in individual rings. The rings appear to have flags of some kind, and Terry and Cirie are shown digging something out of the middle and running back to the starting line (where puzzle trays appear to await). There may be more to the challenge, this is not much to go on. But as VolcanicGlass first pointed out at MeSS, Aras ends up with the necklace.

BOOT: Cirie
From ChillOne: "I'm told that at the Final 4 Tribal Council, there is a voting stalemate; 2-2. To settle this, the 2 square off (Black girl vs. Blonde girl?) in that TC fire building challenge we've seen before -- first to have their fire burn through the string, wins. Loser walks."

ChillOne's later info suggests that loser is Cirie. We can't verify the tie vote scenario, but we have heard that Cirie gets the boot here, so it sounds good to us.

Update: The late-arriving CBS press release says "Tribal Council proves to be one of the season's most intense." Sounds like this might support the tie vote scenario. Either way, Cirie should still get the boot.
