No, make that "interesting", as in the Chinese curse.
But now it's over, and we can get onto a new topic, and a new week!
First though, we have our usual "good news, bad news" segment. Easily the worst part of the week, and given that the two people leaving us this week are both beloved veterans, there's a little bit of extra sting that you have when you have had a chance to know folks a little better.
Did I say "two"? Yes, I did.
I'll explain that in a minute.
First, the good news - which partially explains the situation now that I think about it. The announcement of who received a "Bouncing Immunity" this week:
rattsu and alephz both gave their immunities to sonophax
everywordiwrite had two immunities to give away, and they went to banyangirl1832 and dblicher (which saved them from a tie-breaker)
similiesslip gave hers to marjory
autumn_writing to seratonation (which saved them from elimination)
basric gave immunity to diagenou
tough_doll did it for createdestiny
and spydielives decided to give immunity to superhappytime
Congratulations all of you.
I said there were two individuals going, and that was because there ended up being two sets of ties in Tribes 3 and 4, this week. Which means there is a new Redemption Tribe forming next week, consisting of: annaonthemoon, kehlen_crow, crimsonplum, lynxypoo, mymisguided, sikander7 and yuniebaby - where they will have another shot to save themselves, and stay in the hunt.
Unfortunately, there are two who will not have that chance. They have been eliminated this week.
I'm really glad that both of them came out again this season, and I hope that we will continue to see them around. I don't need to say it, but I feel funny not reminding them (so I totally will) that you never know what is going to happen, and they just might get another shot to get back into the competition!
