Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Several big surprises are in store for the audience in this two-part installment of Survivor: Pearl Islands. Well, maybe they aren't surprises at this point of the game, since everyone knows that Osten Taylor has set a precedent by voluntarily quitting the competition in its 19th day. Also, two of the survivors previously voted off the island have been invited to return and join the newly formed Outcast tribe. In other events, the Morgan and Drake tribes merge to form the Balboas, whereupon one of the members of this new tribe is booted off the show -- and the deciding vote is cast by one of those who'd previously been exiled but had returned.
