Upon returning back to camp, Coach tells the group that Jim is "the most dangerous person" because when the chips are down, he would screw everyone over. However, Coach reassures the group that they have nothing to worry about, privately admitting that no one who's on the bottom of his alliance should feel like it because then they'll go to the other side.
Whitney has sussed him, however, saying that Coach is running the show and questioning how the players who are meant to be so smart can be stupid enough to follow him so blindly. She is not fooled and stays well clear of the conversation.
In a private conversation, Coach admits that he worries he will be blindsided as Albert and Brandon have been running amok over the last week and "fishy things are abroad".
Cochran thinks that there's a power struggle between Coach and Albert and confesses that even he is no longer comfortable with his place in the game, as it may be in the cards to get rid of him before his time.
The entire Te Tuna tribe heads to Redemption Island arena for the duel between Jim, Ozzy and Keith. Jeff announces that the task will require the men to hold their arms outstretched, holding two poles against an overhead board. One movement can send the poles falling, eliminating them from the competition.
The first two men to drop their poles will be out of the game for good, while the last player standing will still have a chance to get back in down the line.
Jim is the first to drop out of the duel and becomes the first member of the Survivor: South Pacific jury. It's down to Keith and Ozzy. Both men seem perilously close to losing their grip but it's eventually Keith who loses his grip and becomes the second member of the jury. This mean that Ozzy stays in the game and still has a chance to win.
Back at Te Tuna, the group is becoming frustrated that they have been eating less than usual and still haven't caught any fish. Dawn privately speaks to Cochran and the pair discuss Cochran returning to the former Savaii alliance.
Cochran believes that he will get more jury votes if he plays the angel and swoops back in, trying to save them. He knows that he must either trust the former Upolu tribe to take him further or else make a "big move" and switch allegiance.
At the day's individual immunity challenge, Jeff reveals that players must balance a bowl of rice atop their heads as they race across two teeter-totters and empty the bowl into a container. If at any point the rice falls off or is touched, they must go back to the start. The first person to finish the task will win immunity and is safe at the next Tribal Council.
Later that afternoon, Coach and Cochran have a heart to heart on the beach again, with Coach saying that if Dawn is allowed to make it until the end, she will win. Cochran is nervous that tonight may be a double elimination and that he may be the one to go during a second vote if it were to happen.
Meanwhile, Dawn has pretty much accepted her fate and realises that she will most likely be the one going home tonight but says that in this game, you never really know and anything could change. Whitney says that she and Dawn are desperate and therefore would consider making a move but have no idea on who to approach. Because of this, they approach Albert in the hopes of swaying him.
Brandon says that Cochran should not be talking to his former teammates and even Coach knows that something is up and does not look happy. Albert tells him that it's "not good" that they've been discovered and admits that Cochran was most likely going to be the next one to go. However, he then suggests again that they take the game into their own hands and make a big move.
The men then approach Sophie with their plan and she seems receptive but unsure. However, she admits that she has no allegiances to Edna. She doesn't want to be a swing vote but has a lot to think about when it comes to what will get her further in the game.
Coach then steps in, saying that Albert is playing the game the wrong way and insisting that if anyone "goes against the family, they're dead".
At Tribal Council, Cochran admits that this is the time for the two remaining former Savaii members to make a "big move" and says that he would like to see that happen as a Survivor fan.
Following the vote, it is revealed that Dawn has been eliminated with five votes. However, Jeff then reveals that another immunity challenge and vote will immediately take place. The task will require players to answer a series of questions related to Survivor. Anyone answering a question wrong will be eliminated while those who answer correctly stay alive.
It's not long before it's down to Whitney, Coach and Sophie after the others answer incorrectly. Coach is the next to go, taking it down to Whitney and Sophie. On the final question about South Pacific clams, it's Sophie who wins immunity yet again, leaving Whitney vulnerable.
After the second vote, it's Whitney who's headed to Redemption Island and the former Savaii tribe has effectively been wiped out.
"At this point, it's going to turn really chaotic on their side because they focused so much on unity and loyalty," Dawn says when Whitney arrives at Redemption Island. "When that's your motto and you have to turn on one another, I don't know what you do."
