Synopsis by Hal Erickson
As Survivor: Pearl Islands launches its tenth, eleventh, and twelfth days of competition, the Morgan tribe is down three players, and the Drake tribe is still intact. With surprising magnanimity (especially since the players are supposed to be emulating pirates and buccaneers), the Drakes seriously consider throwing the next competition so the Morgans will have finally won something. In the course of events, the Drakes allow one player (who has emerged triumphant in the immunity challenge) to defect to the Morgans. And at episode's end, it is a Drake who is voted off the island -- but that doesn't mean that he is completely off the show, as we will soon see!
