Ashley and Rob get to another station and grab their second bags. Phillip also gets a second bag from a station. I will laugh my ass off if he wins this. I mean, seriously. That would almost redeem this season. Rob tries to run away and lose Ashley, but she sticks behind him. They get their third bags. Phillip has fallen behind, sadly. Natalie is whatever. Rob gets his fourth bag. Ashley is close behind. Phillip manages to find a third bag, but Rob and Ashley are now making their way to the end to solve their puzzles. As for Natalie, Probst says: "Natalie! One bag. Has only one bag." How can she possibly be this bad at this? Is she just not trying? Rob and Ashley start working on their puzzles. Somehow, Ashley manages to get two of the words: "safe" and "only." Rob doesn't have any yet, and has the balls to suggest to Ashley that they work together on this. But Ashley won't tell him what she has. And I'm not sure why he can't just bend over and look at her board, since it's right there in plain sight like that. Both contestants start piecing together the solution. It looks like Ashley has it again, but in the end, it's freaking Rob with the win. And he is fucking thrilled about it because he knows that pretty much just won him a million dollars. He screams and jumps up and down, then starts crying. So does Natalie, but only because she sucked so much in that challenge. Phillip sucks up as Rob is given the immunity necklace, saying "that was beautiful. Absolutely beautiful." Rob tearfully interviews that Amber was the person who encouraged him to come back and try this stupid game for a fourth time because she "believed" in him. Yeah, and wanted a million dollars. And probably wanted him out of her hair for a month. Rob claims that he'll be okay even if he doesn't win the million now that he's made it into the Final Three. "I feel like I did my best," he says. And then he stops being sentimental and says now he has to figure out which of the "three idiots" to send home tonight.
The four return to camp and group hug again. Phillip and Ashley compete with each other to see who can suck up to Rob the most as Rob says that his job today is to convince both Phillip and Ashley that he's taking them to the finals with him just to keep the peace around camp before Tribal, when he votes one of them out. See, this is the kind of shit that makes the jurors not want to vote for Rob. There's really no reason for him to lie to anyone at this point since he has immunity, but he's doing it anyway. Then again, when those people last season tried to be upfront and honest with Jane that they were voting her out, she threw a fit and it was horrible and awkward for everyone, including the audience, so maybe he's doing everyone a favor. Rob still wants to vote Ashley out, but he's not sure if he'll be able to convince Natalie to vote with him. Phillip goes off to collect wood, so Rob tells Ashley that they're voting for Phillip tonight but he doesn't want anyone to tell Phillip that lest he freak out on them. So he's going to tell Phillip to vote for Ashley tonight. Ashley thinks that's a good idea and interviews that she's confident that Rob is telling her the truth, especially since she has such a close bond with Natalie that she would definitely tell her if Rob was lying. She makes sure to tell Natalie to tell her if she hears "anything," though, so she's not totally comfortable. Natalie also seems to believe that Phillip is the one leaving tonight, as she interviews that she's really looking forward to spending her final day in this game without him.
