Betrayals Are Going to Get Exposed is the third episode of Survivor: Edge of Extinction.

Story

Night 6

Following Tribal Council, Keith Sowell arrives on the Edge of Extinction, meeting up with its first inhabitant, Reem Daly. Both castaways embrace, happy to see each other. Keith apologizes to Reem for voting her out in the first Tribal Council, but Reem harbors no animosity towards him.

S38 keith t
Keith

I'm scared out of my mind. It's dark. It's freaking dark. You literally cannot see in front of you.

Reem explains to Keith her struggles on the Edge of Extinction, including the fact that she has not eaten in days. Keith wishes to sleep and get some food.

S38 reem t
Reem

It's an emotional roller-coaster out here. And knowing all of that, I feel now responsible for Keith. I was ready to raise that mast, but now I'm in that "motherly" role where I hate to leave him alone. Now I feel like I have to stay to make sure he's okay.

Day 7

On the Edge of Extinction, both Keith and Reem find bottles under the mast labeled with their names. They find a map of the island inside each bottle, directing them to find steps on the island and climb to the top.

S38 reem t
Reem

It says that there's these stairs. I've no idea where they are, which is interesting because I've kind of scoured this beach, I thought, but I didn't see anything. I mean, granted, this island is huge. It's exhausting.

Exhausted, Reem follows Keith traversing around the island, searching for the stairs.

S38 keith t
Keith

There's no set path. I don't know how far I need to go or if I'm just wandering endlessly. It's difficult. This island is huge. But then, I see the steps.

After passing a rocky coast of the island, the pair find a long set of stairs, which they climb and follow, panting and expressing their fatigue. At the top, the pair find a small wooden bucket with a ration of rice. Upon closer inspection, Reem is disappointed to find hardly any rice in the bucket.

S38 reem t
Reem

That freaking note says "you have to work hard for everything". We have to do this everyday. Apparently, every time, we gotta climb up Mount Everest to find a little bit of rice. ... we get back at camp.

The tribes reconvene for the first standalone Reward Challenge: Losing Face. After explaining the challenge's instructions, host Jeff Probst reveals to the castaways the choices of reward: comfort items or three hens and a rooster. The tribes show more enthusiasm to the chickens. Before the challenge starts, Kama sits out Aubry Bracco and Ron Clark.

David Wright, Rick Devens, and Wardog DaSilva assemble their wheelbarrow for Manu moments before Kama does, but they are overtaken slightly as Eric Hafemann, Joe Anglim, and Julie Rosenberg untie the knots and collect their sandbags at a faster rate. The tribes become even while dumping their sandbags in the trough, but Manu takes the lead after the remaining Kama members struggle to reassemble their wheelbarrow into a slingshot. During this time, Wendy Diaz injures her foot with a wheelbarrow part. Chris Underwood knocks down all four targets for Manu compared to Kama's one, knocked down by Julia Carter, allowing Manu to win reward and their first challenge overall. Manu chooses the chickens and as the tribes walk back to camp, Wendy notices the pain inflicted by the wheelbarrow part from the challenge.

S38 wendy t
Wendy

I should be happy that it's our first win, but suddenly my ankle started throbbing when I was leaving the challenge and I just look down, and I ... it was really tender and it started looking swollen. Now I- I can't even move it. God, today just keeps getting worse.

Wendy is carried by Chris and Rick as Manu arrives back at camp.

S38 wendy t
Wendy

On the second part of the challenge, we had to disassemble this big wheelbarrow, and I took out a pin, and lifted up the wheel, and it just fell on my ankle. But I was just so focused on the challenge that I was just like, I'll worry about it later.

As she is set down against a tree, she explains to the whole tribe what had caused her injury.

S38 wendy t
Wendy

So as I'm walking to camp, like, I guess since I had calmed down or something it just, like, it just started throbbing and progressively felt worse and worse. And I'm just, like, worried because I've never broken anything, and, like, I don't know- (cries briefly) like, I just, I just don't want this to be serious.

Lauren O'Connell reminds Wendy that they are there whenever she needs anything as the tribe. Wendy then goes to check out the chickens the tribe had just won. Lauren talks to the chickens, while Wardog explains that the rooster will be killed for food prior to the next Immunity Challenge. Chris is also excited to eat chicken. Hearing all this from the tree, Wendy gets emotional for the chickens.

S38 wendy t
Wendy

All I have to do is sit here in pain, and listening to what they're saying what they're gonna do to these chickens and it's upsetting. I'm just like, "poor chickens, what did they do to the players?" Like, they are, like- they- the players signed up for this game, not the chickens, so why should they be penalized?

The rest of the tribe discusses who and how they will kill the chickens within earshot of Wendy. Rick refuses to kill a chicken and Lauren wishes to wait for eggs, then kill the chickens rather than look at them.

S38 wendy t
Wendy

Coming into this game, I always said if my tribe were to win chickens, I'd release the chickens! But, how would I be able to do it with this busted ankle?

Rick talks to Wendy and admits that the tribe would want to kill one of the chickens soon. Wendy is upset about the chickens and Rick claims that he is with her. Wendy plans to release the chickens and, although Rick would not reveal to the tribe Wendy's actions, he refuses to be her accomplice in setting the chickens free.

S38 rick t
Rick

It was probably the most surprising part of my game so far, when Wendy asked me to be an accomplice in a jailbreak. She wants to set the chickens free. She's literally willing to sacrifice her entire game of Survivor to save these chickens. I don't think I've ever met anyone like Wendy. She's a loveable, emotional nut.

Kama returns camp dejected from losing the Reward Challenge but are relieved to not have lost an Immunity Challenge and be forced to vote one of their tribe members out. Victoria Baamonde outlines the alliances in the tribe and the plans that would occur if they had to go to Tribal Council: the Kama Six-Eric, Julia, Julie, Ron, Victoria, and Gavin Whitson-are firmly aligned together against the tribe's two returning players-Aubry and Joe-, along with their ally Aurora McCreary.

S38 victoria t
Victoria

We lost the Reward Challenge today, which kinda sucks, but we haven't lost an Immunity Challenge yet. We haven't had to go to tribal yet, and that's way more important. I have found myself in a group of six: me, Julie, Julia, Gavin, Ron, and Eric, which makes a lot of sense because there's a general feeling on the tribe that returning players have played before, they had their shot. This is our first chance, we should get to play before they do. Joe and Aubry are a target, and Aurora is the only one who seems 1000% on board with the returning players so if we were to lose the next Immunity Challenge and we had to go to tribal, I think that one of 'em's gotta go.

Victoria talks to Ron on the beach about which among Aubry, Aurora, or Joe the six would vote out. Unbeknownst to Victoria, talking about Aubry and Joe being a pair, Joe is merely meters from behind her. He questions what Victoria had just said. Joe tells Victoria that he may be on the bottom of the barrel, but Victoria tries to claim there is no barrel.

S38 victoria t
Victoria

Oh my God, Joe is over there and I had no idea.

Joe tells Ron and Victoria that he and Aubry get nervous due to the majority alliance speaking amongst themselves.

S38 joe t
Joe

I feel like I just can't get a read on Victoria and Ron because you ask 'em kind of what they're thinking, and they, like, give you nothing. So I have a funny feeling that I might be on the chopping block.

Later, Joe asks Aubry and Aurora how they feel. Aurora believes that the lines are clear and Joe gets weird vibes from the other tribe members. Aubry sees her tribemates' true colors and realizes her position in the tribe, so she goes to search for a Hidden Immunity Idol.

S38 aubry t
Aubry

I think Joe's looking for redemption just like I am and we are scared coming into this new group of players. I think that returnees are an easy target. So I feel like I do need the idol. I'm looking for the idol. I'm looking high, low, in trees. I dig up around Tree Mail, digging on the side of the path. Looking in trees. I mean, it's something I've dreamed about my entire Survivor experience. I've done nearly everything in Survivor, except win and get a Hidden Immunity Idol. And I know how hard it is to win and I am here to win, but first I need to check one more thing off my Survivor checklist. I want every experience on Survivor and that's one I haven't had. So, I keep looking, anything I could see to find the idol.

Aubry finds a package and opens it, revealing an idol with its note. Aubry gets emotional and sobs while reading the note, proud of herself for achieving one of her goals.

S38 aubry t
Aubry

I find the idol and I break down in tears. I never… I never thought I'd find one and I've been through so much in Survivor and this is something that I haven't gotten yet. It's worth the effort to work through the struggle and I love this game so much, I'm gonna make it work for me.

Back at Manu, Wardog asks Wendy why she wants to keep the chickens alive despite eating meat outside the game. Admitting that she is being hypocritical, Wendy claims that it is because the meat to be consumed outside the game is already dead. Wardog wants strength for the next Immunity Challenge from the chickens. Wendy wants to help the world be meatless and Wardog tells her that to do so, she should be a vegetarian. Wendy agrees to be one, but jokes that she has already been a vegetarian for the time she has spent on the island.

S38 wardog t
Wardog

We need to try to win this game, and to win this game we need strength. Wendy's losing her mind. Wendy doesn't want to kill anything now. Back home, she eats chicken and pork and meat and all that. She's like, "I know I'm hypocritical". I said, "Absolutely right, you're hypocritical!" Even when she's on the losing side of the argument, she's just so stubborn to the point she says she's going to be a vegetarian. Well, I tell you what, Wendy, mark my words. If you're vegetarian, I will beat your … in the game. But the minute I find out you got one piece of meat in your belly, just don't talk to me again. She's lost her rocker!

Talking with Wardog, Lauren, and Kelley Wentworth claim that they would understand Wendy if she was vegan or vegetarian, but they strongly believe Wendy should not stop the tribe from eating the chickens, saying that the whole situation is ridiculous.

S38 kelley t
Kelley

If this tribe loses again, I would want to target Wendy because Wendy does not want to kill the chickens, she had to be carried in to camp because her ankle's so bad, and on top of that I saw one vote at tribal for me and that was from Wendy. If you're coming after me, like I have to get you before you get me. I mean, it's kill or be killed. If you come after me, like, I mean, watch out.


Day 8

The tribes gather for the Immunity Challenge: Beyond the Wheel. Before Jeff explains the rules, he takes back the tribal Immunity Idol, only for Julie to hold onto it briefly, receiving reactions from both Jeff and Manu. After Julie and Victoria sit out for Kama, the challenge commences and the tribes are relatively even throughout the key-collecting section of the challenge. Wendy is noted by Jeff to be swimming very well in the challenge despite a broken ankle. Manu receives a slight lead until both tribes are equalized during the puzzle. However, David, Kelley, and Lauren fail to solve the first bag of the puzzle, while Aubry, Julia, and Ron pull ahead to form their ship's wheel. The trio spin the wheel amongst celebrations raising the Kama flag, winning their third straight immunity and sending Manu again to their third Tribal Council.

S38 david t
David

Losing the Immunity Challenge was incredibly devastating, but I've always been wanting to target Wentworth and I think people are going to be really focused on Wendy, so I have a real opportunity to take out Wentworth. I trust my Survivor instincts, it's my Survivor spidey-sense, and it's telling me right now, target Wentworth.

Manu returns to camp, and David apologizes for not being able to work well on the puzzle portion of the Immunity Challenge. Chris and Wardog want to eat chicken and Wendy quickly heads to the beach after briefly stopping at the shelter.

S38 wendy t
Wendy

Going into today's Immunity Challenge, I'm injured, and I killed it. I felt like I did the best I could have done. I'm bummed because I know all eyes are on me and I feel like tonight, I'm going home. If it's me tonight, like they're not eating that chicken.

David prepares to kill the chicken. However, he does not find the flint to make fire. The tribe is confused as to the whereabouts of the flint, which Chris held last, and Kelley is silently furious and worried. The tribe then questions Wendy's whereabouts and suspect her of taking the flint, but believe it would be too of an insane act.

S38 wendy t
Wendy

I took their flint! (laughs) Being the smarty I am, I thought that they can't cook the chicken without fire, and they can't make a fire without flint.

The whole tribe except Wendy looks and digs around their camp in search of the flint, and Wardog's suspicions of Wendy increase as he realizes that she briefly went to the shelter and left. The tribe recruits Rick to ask Wendy, and David goes with him.

S38 david t
David

The flint. It's disappeared. And there's this theory floating around that maybe Wendy took it because she's been really against us killing a chicken. Everyone's like losing their minds about the flint and so, they're probably gonna want to vote out Wendy because of this whole chicken debate, but I want to take out Wentworth.

On the beach, David asks Wendy if she has the flint, but Wendy pretends to not know and claims that Chris held it last. David and Rick then tell Wendy their thoughts on voting out Kelley.

S38 david t
David

Wendy's absolutely the best smokescreen I've ever worked with. She is like delivered on a silver platter – this like, "vote me out".

Chris is able to end up making smoke at camp as David and Rick return, believing that Wendy did not take the flint. Kelley makes sure with David that the vote is still towards Wendy.

S38 david t
David

I don't want to vote out Wendy. I think Wendy is someone I can use. She's loyal to me. She'll vote with me I think every time. What we really want is to send Kelley home. Kelley Wentworth needs to go home, and now, it's a matter of pulling over Chris.

David tells Chris to vote out Kelley, and also instructs him not to tell Lauren or Wardog about the plan. Chris thinks Wardog would be a number, but David believes that the plan will fail if it is leaked to Wardog, as he is too close to Kelley.

S38 chris t
Chris

Wentworth, she's too good to keep around. The problem is, I've been pretty close with Wardog, and David wants it just to be us four, but back home in my real life, I'm someone who is open with everybody, so my biggest fear is that I burn bridges with some of the relationships I've built out here.

Later on the beach, Chris approaches Wardog and tells him that the vote should be either Kelley or Wendy, believing that Kelley is playing too much like a snake.

S38 wardog t
Wardog

Wendy should be out in this vote tonight. Wendy's got a hurt ankle. Wendy doesn't want anything to do with the chickens or anybody having a chicken. But Chris approached me for the second time for keeping our options open and take out Wentworth. The problem with that is, I trust Wentworth much more than I trust Chris. So I decided, maybe it's not Wendy or Wentworth, maybe it's Chris.

Wardog reveals to Kelley that Chris plans to vote her out, and Wardog wants to vote him out. They both discuss numbers and plan to pull in Rick to vote Chris out.

S38 kelley t
Kelley

So Chris is coming after me now, saying my name and basically trying to put this plan together to get me out. That's not gonna work for me! If you're coming for me, like you have to go. No more Wendy, vote Chris.

Rick finds out from Wardog that Chris has leaked to him the plan to vote Kelley out, and Wardog attempts to convince him to vote Chris out, without revealing the plan to either David or Wendy. Rick tallies the numbers and wishes to pull David in the plan in order not to alienate David. Wardog is fine with letting Rick pull David in. Rick claims that he has been wanting to make a big move and that now could be the time.

S38 rick t
Rick

Wardog wants to get Chris out, because Chris is going after Kelley which I'm like "oh ****," he doesn't know I've been going after Kelley. It sucks because, it's all just like coming to a head. Now I'm being pushed into a corner where I'm going to have to betray someone. I'm a villain now, I've been turned into a villain!

Rick reveals to David that Chris had told Wardog, who told Kelley, about their original plan to vote her out. David explains that Kelley was not supposed to know that her name was out there. They find out where Kelley's loyalties lie, as she approaches them to discuss the vote.

S38 david t
David

Oh my God, now it looks like Wendy isn't even an option to vote for anymore, which was a simple vote. Now it's become a vote between Wentworth and Chris. So now, Rick and I find ourselves in the middle. Whatever name Rick and I land on, that is who should be going home tonight. On one hand, it's good to vote for Wentworth, because she's the person I least trust in this game, but the funny thing is, if I vote Chris out, no one in the game would know that I'm the one going after Wentworth. No matter what, tonight's Tribal Council is gonna be huge. Secrets are going to get exposed. Betrayals are going to get exposed. And I don't think anybody is going to view those betrayals kindly or quietly.


The Manu tribe arrives at Tribal Council where Rick states that the tribe would be perceived as losers, losing Immunity Challenges as well as the flint. Wardog adds the tribe have been arguing about chickens, and Lauren explains to Jeff that Wendy did not want to kill the chickens. Wendy counters by saying that she is just not comfortable with it. Wendy is briefly dubbed the 'warpup' after Wardog claims that he sees a little stubbornness in Wendy when he talked to her about being vegetarian. Rick recounts that the last two votes have been about increasing the chances of winning challenges, which have not worked out, and so the tribe has to re-evaluate. Kelley believes that the vote should come to loyalty, having to trust the people that they are with as the numbers get smaller. David believes that challenge liabilities have become irrelevant to the vote, and that votes should be based on who is the most socially threatening. Kelley struggles to answer Jeff's questions as she tries to process David's comment. Wardog is also thrown off by David's comment. Wendy then claims that the tribe is hierarchical and that she is at the bottom, so she attempts to extract every bit of information in Tribal Council. Jeff is fascinated by the fact that Manu is playing in a complex way despite losing all the time. Rick hopes that the strategy helps them be more developed over the Kama tribe. Chris says that the people here are good players and are real.

The Manu tribe casts their votes with Kelley, Lauren, and Wardog voting against Chris, while Chris and Wendy vote against Kelley. David and Rick ultimately cast the deciding votes against Chris, voting him out in a 5-2 decision.

Chris walks out of Tribal Council where he encounters the crossroads. With a vulgar message against his tribe, he immediately picks up the torch to head to the Edge of Extinction.

Challenges

Challenge: Losing Face
Three members of each tribe must assemble a wheelbarrow, then navigate it through a course. Once through the course, each tribe must then unite a series of knots to release a set of sandbags. They must then take sandbags and place them in a trough. Once all of their sandbags are in the trough, the other four members must take apart the wheelbarrow and assemble it to create a slingshot. Using their sandbags, tribes will then need to knock down four targets. The first tribe to knock down all four targets wins.
Reward: Choice between comfort items or three hens and a rooster
Winner: Manu (Manu chose chickens)

Challenge: Beyond the Wheel
Three tribe members will sit in a boat, which the other four members are tethered to. The swimmers must get the boat to a tower, where the three passengers will collect three keys. The tribes must then head to a platform, where they will use the keys to unlock a chest containing pieces to a ship's wheel. Once the wheel is assembled, the tribe must install it to a mechanism to raise their flag. The first tribe to do so wins immunity.
Winner: Kama
