Synopsis by Hal Erickson
With Ami Cusack voted off Palau Island in the previous episode, ten of the original contestants remain as Survivor: Micronesia-Fans vs. Favorites enters its next phase. The time has come for the traditional merging of the tribes, with the remnants of the Malkalals and Airais now banded together into the single Dabu Tribe. There is no Reward Challenge or Exile on this occasion, though the Immunity Challenge (involving a rising tide and a metal grate) proceeds as scheduled. Some fun-and-games involving the fake Immunity Idol take place; and former competitors Jason Siska and Eliza Orlins must now work together to protect themselves from the machinations of the others.
