Survivor: Samoa episode 4 detailed immunity challenge spoilers/ speculation
  As mentioned on the RC page, it's clear there's a separate IC this week, and no combined RC/IC. Galu's pre-challenge lineup features the immunity idol, and Foa Foa is clearly standing in front of the nets. So the net challenge appears to be for immunity.

   The challenge appears to be run as follows: Both tribes have to collect square blocks, then transfer these across a criss-crossing course, on which the running surface is nets (for added difficulty). At some point, there's also a rope bridge (on which Mick, Ashley, Jaison and Russell H. are all shown), but nobody's carrying blocks there, so it's not clear where it fits in. Possibly after the next stage, in which the blocks are stacked to form huge towers.
   Galu chooses to sit out Dave, Shambo, Russell S. and someone else (BJ at MeSS sees Monica in the challenge, so it must be Laura) here.

Update: CBS also released a behind-the-scenes video for this challenge, and it's called "Well Stacked". Amusingly, it's still not remotely clear where the rope bridge fits into this challenge, since the video shows the dreamteamers starting, running across the nets, waiting for everyone to arrive on the mats, then starting to stack the blocks. Once the stack is complete, and the tribe is back on their mat, they win.

   So who wins? From all the clues, we'd have to guess Foa Foa finally pulls out a win here. But we do have Probst in the web promo saying "we are very close," and the stacks don't look dramatically different. In doubt here, we'll have to pick Foa Foa.
