Survivor: David vs. Goliath Finale and Reunion Show Recap: And The Winner Is…

Just like John “The Mayor of Slam-Town” Hennigan told us from the jury tonight: It’s not necessarily how well you fought, it’s sometimes about that big, memorable finish. As one of the most universally beloved seasons of one of the most popular reality competition shows draws to a close, people were asking: Will the finale episode of Survivor: David vs. Goliath live up to the rest of the season? In other words, will the finish be as good as the fight?

Anyone watching tonight’s Survivor Finale and Live Reunion Show that followed knows that we were treated with something special this season. The ending did not disappoint. 37 (!) seasons now in the books, and this show is still firing on all cylinders. This is based on the strength of its cast and on the producer’s willingness to evolve. Not every new twist works, but when you match a great cast with a great theme, sometimes sparks fly. Or in Kara‘s case tonight, sometimes they don’t.

Before we dive in, as I do at the beginning of every Recap, please heed the following: Remember that this recap assumes that you have already seen this week’s Survivor: David vs. Goliath Finale. So if you have not and don’t want to be spoiled, please come back later! It’s important to add too that while we WILL hit on all of the important developments of the episode. This is not a linear “blow-by-blow” recap, and is more of a discussion and reaction of what we just witnessed together.

Survivor: David vs. Goliath Episode 13 Recap: Free For All

The Survivor Gods giveth. Then they taketh away. Just last week, we experienced the demise of the somewhat polarizing Gabby Pascuzzi. Many fans cheered. This week we witnessed a shocking exit that most likely made you scream at your TV, stomp away in anger and throw your Survivor notepad to the floor in disgust. Or was that just me?Yes, this week’s penultimate episode is sure to have whipped the whole of the Survivor-verse into a furious frenzy. But if one thing was made clear by the episode’s end: This season, it’s anybody’s game.

Exclusive Interview: Survivor: David vs. Goliath’s Gabby: ‘If You Think I Didn’t Know About His Girlfriend…You’re An Idiot’

There may be no crying in baseball, but when it comes to Survivor, let those tears loose, child. This week we said goodbye to Gabby. I think it’s fair to say has worn her emotions on her sleeve. And even though her platonic relationship with Christian has been one of the main themes of this season, this week she finally sought to make a big move against him in an attempt to bolster her “Survivor resume.” It back-fired, in glorious fashion.

Survivor: David vs. Goliath Episodes 12 Recap: The Sidekick

I’m not crying, you’re crying! It was an emotional roller-coaster of an episode tonight on Survivor., The contestants’ “loved ones” challenge revealed some softer sides from the remaining eight players. I mean, Gabby has cried during almost every single episode this season, so that’s no barometer. But you know it’s an emotional night when everyone out there was left sobbing. There wasn’t a dry eye in my house (darned allergies!). This was not just because of all of the love that was in the air. The game took a stunning turn towards the end with yet another shocking Tribal Council.

Exclusive Interviews: Survivor: David vs. Goliath’s Alec Merlino and Carl Boudreaux

It was a double-dose of Survivor this week. That means not one but two players were sent to jury. Alec’s exit was fairly straight-forward. In contrast, Carl became the first blindsided member of the beloved David alliance. This set the stage for the rest of the season (just two episodes left before the two-hour Finale on Dec. 19th!).

Survivor: David vs. Goliath Episodes 10 and 11 Recap: Drunk With Power, And Other Things

Well, it couldn’t last forever. Now don’t get me wrong, Survivor: David vs. Goliath continues to be one of the best seasons in several years by all measures. Of course, the show had to come down a bit at some point following what had truly been two back-to-back “Hall of Fame”-worthy Tribal Councils. Tonight’s double-episode extravaganza was solid, but not legendary. It was entertaining, but not all that exciting. But it’s impossible to match what we’ve been given the past two weeks. I urge you – implore you – to go get one of your non-Survivor-watching friends right now, and get them to start binging this season. Because, oh man, this season is still red-hot and far from over. Friends don’t let friends not watch Survivor, right?

Exclusive Interview: Survivor: David vs. Goliath’s Dan:

As we all still manage to digest the turkey, pumpkin pie and leftovers from this past week, we’re also trying to digest the crazy-epic blindside we witnessed on Thanksgiving Eve. Of course, I’m talking about last Wednesday’s episode of Survivor: David vs. Goliath. This season, by all accounts, has been amazing. It begs many of us to ask the question the non-Survivor-watchers. What the heck are you doing if not watching Survivor this season? Do you not like great television? Or in the words of Russell Crowe: Are you not entertained???

It was a Thanksgiving treat that came early, maybe for all but Dan Rengering, the Goliath who seemed to be in the absolute best position…until he wasn’t. It was one for the ages and included a second-straight “Hall of Fame” caliber Tribal Council the likes of which we have – literally – never seen.  And if you missed any of the action?
