The Full Circle is the tenth episode of Survivor: Winners at War.

Story

Day 24

Today was the biggest blindside in Survivor history. We had no clue that there was gonna be a loved ones visit. And the best part about it was there was no catch to it. No one had to compete for their loved ones. No one had to compete for their children. I think that this is our reward for giving so much to this game that we love that Jeff was like, "Hey, good job, guys." And so today was a full-on celebration.

It was like everybody put their guns down for a minute and the war was called to a halt. It didn't matter if someone wrote your name down last night or not. My son's playing with the enemy, but that's okay, because we're humans right now. And it was really cool to see everybody in their element.

To have kids out here for the first time like that, whole families out on Survivor, I think it was definitely something really special. I was genuinely happy for everyone, that they got that moment.

Amber

You bring family members here, it's like you never knew we were suffering, ever. Everybody's so happy. Everybody has energy. Every-- nobody's thinking about hunger. Nobody's thinking about anything else. Like, we've escaped for a few moments, and we're as happy as can be.

To have my husband here, who I met because of Survivor, and our baby here, where we should not even be having a family visit, my mind was exploding.

Adam

It's-- I needed my dad to be here, to get some sense of closure for my mom's passing. The most important thing was giving my dad that opportunity to be here, where she was with me, where she is with me.

Adam

Him being able to come here, it made everything okay.

S40 wendell t.png
Wendell

My dad, he's the best. He's my hero, and it was just so good to see him.

S40 yul t.png
Yul

I-I can't describe how much sheer joy and happiness I felt in that moment.

S40 ethan t.png
Ethan

I will always have that moment that I shared with my wife here on Edge of Extinction. And that is, like, so special.

S40 natalie t.png
Natalie

This is the one time on Survivor when you are yourself with your family and you can see people just be themselves with the people that they love the most. It was a magical moment.

S40 rob t.png
Rob

It was amazing, having my kids here. They got to come out here and experience what we've been doing for almost 20 years.


Day 25

Ben

With ten people left, this is a huge vote because tonight will prove who's in control of the tribe. Like the fog is settling on the battlefield. There's gonna be a lot of close fire zinging by our heads, and someone will get hit tonight. Tonight, there will be blood.


S40 tony t.png
Tony

This is the first time in three seasons I get to wear the bulletproof vest right here. (holds Immunity Necklace) I have it. To win it on a game that requires patience, that's not my style of game. Slow and steady is not what I'm made of. I'm made out of fast and sloppy. I am so happy. This is more powerful than any Hidden Immunity Idol. And when you have the power, people come to you.

S40 jeremy t.png
Jeremy

It's getting down to the nitty-gritty, and more than anything, I would love to break up Sarah and Sophie. They're too close, and that's dangerous for people like me who's by himself, basically, you know? But Tony's like, "We can't do that." And it's frustrating. I don't get a voice, and that's not how it should be.

S40 sarah t.png
Sarah

I want to vote out Kim. Kim is gonna win this game if we don't vote her out. But talking to Tony right now is like talking to a rock.

S40 sarah t.png
Sarah

He's not even listening to what I'm saying. He tells me stop freaking out at him, but then he freaks out at me, and it's just a mess. And it's like, geez Louise, how can we even work together? This is going to end badly if we can't get this straightened out.

S40 tony t.png
Tony

There's something fishy about Jeremy. He's sneaky. I don't trust him. Every time we tell him something, he wants to go against the grain. He would even vote Sarah out if he could, so he's gotta go.

S40 kim t.png
Kim

It's just chaos at camp. There's lots of conversations going on, and we're not a part of it. So I need to start getting a different plan.

S40 tyson t.png
Tyson

I am worried that it could be me going back to the Edge tonight. I've already been voted out once. But Kim has an idol, and if we play it right, maybe I can save myself for at least one more vote.

S40 sarah t.png
Sarah

Oh, my gosh. They've changed the vote again. Are you serious?

S40 jeremy t.png
Jeremy

I have my Safety Without Power advantage, so I can leave Tribal Council. I don't get a vote, but I cannot be voted out. But now my alliance needs me for a vote. If I did leave, I would be turning my back on my alliance. But I'm a firefighter, and we take care of people.

S40 sophie t.png
Sophie

Sarah has the Steal-a-Vote. I would prefer if she just played it tonight to be safe, because if all five of those people vote together, we will potentially go to rocks. The war is happening tonight, and the question is: When the smoke clears, who's gonna be dead in the trenches?


During the credits, as host Jeff Probst dismissed the jury from Tribal Council and instructed them to return to the Edge of Extinction, the jury surprised Jeff by thanking him for the opportunity to spend time with their loved ones.
