The Survivor: Winners at War episode 7 sneak peek videos look into Tony’s perspective of the Dakal tribe and a recently introduced Immunity Challenge.

Last week was an unprecedented moment in Survivor history, yet it partially reflected a recent repetition for a certain player. Denise was not only the sole vote to count and eliminate a player (a feat only replicated by fellow winner Ben Driebergen), but she used the idol she received from her eventual victim, Sandra Diaz-Twine, to protect herself.

It is a move that will likely be remembered for future generations of the show’s viewers (if production can get back to schedule), but for the players still in the game, it will be fresh in their memory going forward. One player has picked up on that notion and has used that knowledge to repurpose their game understanding going forward.

The first of two Survivor: Winners at War episode 7 sneak peek videos for “We’re in the Majors” shows Tony Vlachos yucking it up with his fellow Dakal tribemates while reassessing where everyone stands after the shocking vote last tribal. He thinks he’s in a great position with Kim and, hopefully, Jeremy, and has rationalized Denise’s move to dethrone the queen as a means to shield himself from being voted out.

The thing about that thinking is he had Sandra as a humungous shield at the merge already, and he had a better working relationship with her than Denise. The woman who just heard the rest of the tribe diminish her threat level publicly just demonstrated a willingness to work with Jeremy and protect him, and with Kim concerned about Tony’s whereabouts, Tony is in a pretty precarious position.

The second of the Survivor: Winners at War episode 7 sneak peek videos looks at the Immunity Challenge, bringing back a very inventive one first introduced in David vs. Goliath. It’s the “carry a huge disk as a tribe through a series of obstacles, fill it up with water, and carefully dump it into a well to release puzzle pieces needed to solve atop the disk” challenge.

Jeff Probst likes to get a bit superfluous when it comes to describing tribes’ performances in challenges, and he’s quick to remind everyone how disastrous Nick’s Jabeni tribe did his first time around. At the very least, Michele looks like she’s going through a bit of hardship even in the basic portions, as she fell down on balance beams running to the disk.
