Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The dread "car curse" has claimed another Survivor victim: Although she won a Pontiac Torrent in the previous episode's Reward Challenge, Cindy Hall has been voted out of the Guatemalan Jungle. And thus, with the 39th day of the competition approaching, things have boiled down to the Final Four: Lydia Morales, Rafe Judkins, Danni Boatwright, and Survivor: Palau veteran Stephenie LaGrossa. The last round of challenges begin ominously with a torrential storm--possibly a "punishment" for the finalists' decision to eat a chicken that had been ceremonially sacrificed. The first of the Immunity Challenges is an extraordinarily complicated one, involving a huge Maya-bird maze. The Final Three then pariticpate in the second Immunity Challenge, negotiating ropes and other balancing materials on a high Mayan pyramid. And then there are two castaways remaining, leaving the choice of Sole Survivor to the jury.
