We don’t get to see too much introspect of the players in the Survivor: Winners at War episode 7 secret scenes, but we do get to see a sweet ole snake!

Winners at War has been a whirlwind season, especially if you’re a fan of old-school players. With the recent loss of Yul Kwon, we now have no winners from before Heroes vs. Villains left in the game. In fact, the veteran Sole Survivor is now Sophie Clarke as despite being one of the youngest competitors this season overall, her season 23 win stands as the oldest.

It makes the realization that she let her winning game pass her that much sweeter in the first (and only interesting) of the Survivor: Winners at War episode 7 secret scenes, as Ben Driebergen found a sweet little baby boa constrictor on the well lid. Instead of playing passively and rigidly at all costs, Sophie is embracing the smaller moments of survival, going off with Ben to see the snake for herself.

If you have to see one treemail segment this week, make sure it’s the Yara treemail, as even though it’s the same tribe once again, you do see their anticipation of the Final 12 being the merge point. However, even after playing a tribal Reward Challenge that wasn’t shown on television, they learn about the Immunity Challenge they would quickly conquer over the other tribes.

The Dakal treemail and Sele treemail segments carry the same weight of what they always do, showing how the tribes react and predict what they’re about to play. Adam is still persona non grata on Yara, and his repeated hope that he doesn’t go to Tribal Council doesn’t bode well for his chances heading into the merge.

Finally, it’s not technically a secret scene, but it is a retrospective from Sandra Diaz-Twine about her leave from the Edge of Extinction. It’s clear that she’s not all too concerned about how people see her departure and that she has set sail on her Survivor career on her own terms. It’s great to see someone outwardly recognize that the Edge of Extinction is not real Survivor gameplay.
