The first casualty of the not-a-merge recombination of the tribes was Cliff, a member of the new Solana tribe. Although the tribes recombined, many were able to stay with members of their previous tribes. Here's the new breakdown:
Alexis, Jeremiah, Kass, Morgan, Spencer, Sarah, Tasha
I dunno. I think that Kass and Lindsey should switch to keep Solana all short names!

Survivor fans ready?
Uh-oh. Lindsey and Trish have a blow up. Lindsey goes to Jeff to whine about it and QUIT THE GAME over a personality clash with one other person. Sheesh! She leaves Jeff to give the tribe the news. Now they're down two people.
Reward challenge time. Two members of the winning tribe get to raid the other tribe's camp. The challenge is one on one, holding an idol, the first one knocking the other's idol down wins the round. Salana wins reward! Woo and Tony go to camp with a note they can't open until they get there.
The note lays out particular items they can take and also gave them a clue to the hidden idol. They took comfort and fishing gear items. They decided to give the clue to Jeremiah thinking it would make a target of him. He read it aloud to his tribemates.
Tony, feeling all warm fuzzies with his new tribe, admitted to them he's a cop. He also told them he bamboozled the other tribe with the clue to set up Jeremiah. He says the clue they (his own tribe) has is for their own camp.
Jeremiah tried to convince his tribe mates that the clue Tony gave him was the old clue from the old camp. They're not buying it. But he IS telling the truth.
Immunity Challenge time -- build a staircase, through a maze, obstacle course, bunch o' stuff, machete, puzzle pieces. You know the routine.
Solana wins Immunity!
Alexis and Jeremiah seem to be the targets. I'm personally hoping it will be Alexis gone. The brains seem like they'll vote together.
The tally -- Jer, Alexis, Alexis, Alexis, Alexis.
Woot! Jeremiah stays!
It sounds like everyone except Alexis might have voted Alexis.
Alexis weeps as she walks away ...
Aw, I didn't care much for her, but she's really devastated about it. And, to think one castaway just threw it all away and quit tonight.
