Lill and Burton return, the tribes merge, and Andrew Savage is voted out.
The second part of the Survivor Pearl Islands twist episode began with the Outcast tribe voting Burton and Lill back into the game. Their randomly selected buffs sent them back to their original tribes, where Burton was collegial and Lill was bitter. The tribes merged shortly thereafter, forming the new Balboa tribe. After Burton won immunity, which he already had as a result of the twist, he gave it to his new bud Rupert. Then Drake’s old members proceeded to vote Andrew off with the help of Lill, who’d had enough of Morgan.
