3. Sarah Lacina
This might seem like a high spot for Sarah Lacina to find herself in the Survivor: Winners at War episode 12 power rankings, especially since it looks like she will get into a heated conflict with Tony after being completely blindsided. Sarah lost one of her closest allies at what she thought was her actual closest ally, putting her as a disadvantageous spot.
As much as Tony and Sarah might be in the middle of a tense moment, they kind of need each other at this stage, even if it’s just for one voting round. We’re at the Final Eight, and if they truly are on opposite ends with one another, there’s a huge potential that they lead four-person voting blocs headed for a tie.
Most importantly, because of the merge tribe’s dynamics, Sarah remains pretty insulated from being targeted. Tony would need her vote in a dire fashion, and he made a move to take out Sophie as a (failed) means of getting closer to Sarah. Ben still has a good relationship with Sarah, as well, and she’s proven with her fashion runway project to demonstrate a great social game.
Sarah isn’t in as bad a position as it might have seemed after being blindsided by her Cops-R-Us alliance buddy.
