Vytas and Spencer are willing to merge their alliance with Monica's, and after convincing Wendy, Steph goes.
Challenge: Walk The Plank
Mike wins because that's what Mike does to challenges.
Michael is getting freaking cocky now that he has an alliance with three insnae people. Phillip is somehow more cocky, forming Stealth R Us 3.0 and letting EVERYBODY on the tribe in. Mike, Bobby, and Katie find themselves in the minority. Bobby goes OFF on Phillip cuz he figures he's done. Phil, however, sees this as an oppurtunity to blindside Michael, seeing as Mike is immune, Katie is a woman and therefore nonthreatening, and Bobby is emotionally spent. He does it.

Popped Collar vs. The Bomb Squad
Challenge: Cannon Carry
