It rolls over to the next morning, and Chris is by the fire, where it is Day 37 at Alinta. Scout combs her hair with some kind of a pick (it's a shame this isn't like The Flintstones, where it would turn out to be a crab or a row of birds tied to a twig). Eliza, still sporting that tiny hickey on her forehead where someone tried to drink her through a straw (which almost appears possible), tells us that while she would have expected herself to be around at the end, it wouldn't have been with these people. She then claims that it's fairly clear, with four people left, who will stick together and who will vote against whom. Presumably, Eliza is now confident that Chris will happily march into a tie that will expose him to the risk of booting rather than break his alliance to Eliza. Why would he do this? I'm just not sure. She acknowledges that Scout and Twila have wanted to get rid of her for a long time, so she's sure they'll enjoy that part. She says that she badly wants to win immunity, and that if she doesn't, she certainly hopes Chris will. I'm not sure what difference that makes, really. Who cares if Scout or Twila wins immunity? You'd just vote out the other one under Eliza's plan, wouldn't you? And as a matter of fact, it seems to me that if Eliza believes Twila and Scout won't turn on each other, she would actually rather Chris not win immunity if she doesn't, because her one opportunity to avoid an otherwise inevitable tie would be to convince them to get rid of Chris, no? I suppose it can only be mean that Eliza is hoping Chris will get Scout to turn on Twila or Twila to turn on Scout, and that if he has immunity, both of those options remain open. Or else, Eliza has swallowed too much seawater and gone goofy.
A wailing voice takes us over to the challenge area. I feel you, wailing voice. Jeff welcomes the final four. He takes the immunity necklace back from Eliza, and then introduces what they're calling, not unreasonably, a "vertical maze." You can think of it as a really big jungle gym that has the additional challenge of only being traversable in particular ways, and you'll be about right. Each person will be assigned a color, and they'll each go around the maze picking up ten pairs of tiles in their color. When they've gotten all their tiles, they'll untie each pair, and each pair will contain a letter tile. Whoever arranges the letters into a two-word, ten-letter phrase first wins immunity.
"Survivors ready...go!" So as usual, Scout is never in it. It's a battle among the other three, and as usual, there's very little substantive recapping to be done. Because you don't really want to read a whole page of "[person] climbs up" and "[person] climbs down," and unfortunately, nobody's blurred ass hangs out or anything. Suffice it to say that Chris, Twila, and Eliza all perform similarly and adequately. And people keep almost stepping on Scout. Chris eventually stakes himself to a small lead, and although it takes him a couple of minutes to sort out the word puzzle, he manages to win immunity, and is mightily excited, as I think he believes this to have been his moment of greatest peril. It certainly would have been had Eliza won immunity, which she almost did. Anyone else in this final four would have been wise to realize that Chris had more jury votes in his pocket than the rest of them, and I suspect Twila and Scout would have turned on him and gone to F3 with the less popular Eliza and not even been all that heartbroken over it. And Chris knows it, so when he wins, there is much "YEAH!"-ing and fist-pumping. It's one of the few major displays we've seen from Chris this season, actually. Jeff calls Chris over and puts the immunity necklace on him. He then intones that, after thirty-seven days, one of the three remaining women will be taking a powder.
