No need to read all the blog entries! Here is the Overview of Season 8 - as we head into the exciting Finale!
~ a cruise ship excursion capsized in the South Pacific and the passengers washed up on a desert island. The Captain of the catamaran, Dante Robinson, suffered a head injury in the crash and became increasingly irrational, to the point where Timothy Baker, cruise ship housekeeping staff, feared for his safety and struck him with a piece of driftwood. Travel blogger Owen Scott arrived as this was happening and, rather than intervene, helped beat the captain senseless and drag him away. Timothy is convinced he’s committed murder.
~ Reverend Karl Locke believes the island has healing powers and revealed to housewife Sandy Erdrich that he had been cured of a debilitating illness. When Sandy revealed her leg injury had healed, the Reverend remained convinced no one should leave but stay and build a new community.
~ A battle for leadership between Nature-ist John “Jack” Collins and YouTube influencer Harper Lee Johnson created divisions amongst the castaways, who had to take sides and switch allegiances.
~ Hot dog vendor Chip Willington adopted a lizard he named Duncan, and made an emotional connection to the recently widowed Loretta Levine.
~ Spencer Wilson found a hand grenade on the beach and later discovered a travel bag buried in the jungle which contained cash, antique jewelry, a gun and a satellite phone; he left several messages on his mother’s answering machine, running down the battery.
~ A helicopter was heard flying over the island, for some raising hopes of rescue.
~ The bag of loot ended up in Owen’s possession, but Jack kept the satellite phone and was about to call for help when it rang; he had a threatening conversation with someone who didn’t speak English well. Jack panicked and told the rest of the Castaways their lives were in danger, and all should be prepared - not for rescue - but for an attack by drug lords.
