We start out at Coyopa post-Tribal Council. Baylor is a little freaked out by how close she got to going home and she's not going to let Josh do the talking for her. John tries to play it that he was trying to protect Val, if only she had played her Idol. Umm, if you're really in an alliance with someone, you don't make them play their Immunity Idol unless you really, really have to. At Hunahpu, Drew points out that their roof isn't the most waterproof, and apparently monsoon season is on the way. But instead of helping weave palm fronds to fix the problem, Drew decides to take a nap. Not a good way to make friends on your tribe, dude.

If you can bear the pun, these breast cancer survivors are all in the same boat. And they are paddling as if their lives depended on it. Cheryl Brower, three years out from being diagnosed with cancer, has organized a group of women with breast cancer from Baltimore, Annapolis and Washington to take up the oars of a huge dragon boat. The women will be competing in Saturday's dragon boat races at Tide Point Waterfront Park near the Domino's Sugar plant. "It is the best team sport ever invented, and I've been in team sports all my life," said Brower, an Ellicott City attorney and mother of four who has competed in dragon boat races internationally.

I swear this episode was brought to us by Bad Idea Jeans. On to the show ... Back at Coyopa's camp after last week's Tribal Council, Josh explains to Baylor that he voted for her because he really wants to be in an alliance with her, but didn't want the rest of the guys to know. That makes no sense. Didn't you just, in fact, draw Baylor to their attention and prove that you have no problem with going against the rest of the group. Bad idea! At Hunahpu (which is the most unnatural thing to spell.

It's night 23, back at camp after Tribal Council, and things are a little awkward. Troyzan has figured out that he doesn't have an alliance, and that it's way too late to do anything about it. While Troy and the women bicker, we see Leif sitting there silently. I hope that Troy causes such a fuss that the women forget about Leif and that he lasts a few more episodes. I think he's got a good chance of winning some immunity challenges, because he never gives up. About this time every season I try to pick out those that I like who might actually have a chance of winning.

It's hard to say goodbye to colleagues. Especially under stressful circumstances such as layoffs that are becoming more frequent in the slumping economy. While the focus is on the plight of unemployed friends and co-workers - and rightly so - there's another group that is also suffering: the so-called survivors who are left to deal with guilt, sadness and other whirling emotions. "There are feelings of guilt," says Benjamin Dattner, a management consultant and adjunct professor in the industrial and organizational psychology master's program at New York University.

Under cloudy skies, volunteers were busy Saturday afternoon installing panels of the Monument Quilt on the verdant Federal Hill Park lawn. Walkers and tourists paused to read the emotionally wrenching messages - numbering in the hundreds - from survivors of rape and sexual abuse from across the country that are written on squares sewn into the multicolored and textured quilt. "I was scared, hiding my emotions away, hidden behind a mask that fooled people for years. I tore away the mask & began my long journey on the road to recovery.

She is the ninth honoree of a Baltimore-based foundation that sends young cancer patients and those who've survived the disease to soccer events around the world.

Hours after being released from the hospital Thursday afternoon, 7-year-old Nevaeh Green sat on her mother's lap at a relative's house, fidgeting with a plastic baggie. The girl remained too shaken up to talk about what had happened two nights earlier On Tuesday, Nevaeh was the lone surviving victim after Baltimore police say a 28-year-old woman purposefully drove her vehicle onto a sidewalk in the 1900 block of W. Franklin St. toward a woman she had been arguing with. In the process, she also hit Nevaeh and a 2-year-old boy. Shanedra Hughes, 27, hugged Nevaeh tightly as she tearfully recalled pulling her daughter from the bottom of a stairwell where she and the others were thrown by the crash.

It's the two-hour finale, and we start out with Jeff and the live studio audience in L.A. So I guess they have to sit and watch the show with the rest of us? But before we get into that, we have to go over the entire season, where I'm reminded of players that I have completely forgotten. Sorry, girl with the dreads from Brawn. Oh, it was Lindsay, and she chose to go home. I had completely forgotten about that. And it's amazing that both Kass and Spencer have made it this far, considering how badly the Brain tribe did at the beginning.

It's a wet night after last week's Tribal Council, and Spencer is pissed that no one told him that they weren't going to vote Tony out. Tony thinks it's because they were toying with him, but the truth is that Kass (and possibly Woo) have figured out that no one likes Tony and they might stand a good chance to win against him in the final three. Tony talks to Woo about the final three, and Tony is thinking about bringing him and Kass (although he's lying about taking Woo because Woo is so darn likeable)

It's Night 25 and things have pretty much gone all to hell at Solarrion. Tony admits that he flipped on LJ, and the rest of his alliance wants to know why. Trish isn't mad, because it wasn't her this time. Why do these people keep trusting him? Haven't they learned that he will vote anyone out? Hopefully tonight is the night the rest of them figure that out. Morning of Day 25, and Tony is running around like a crazy person (go figure) and making himself a spy shack. Sigh. He's insane, but he's totally right, because he totally spies on Jefra and Trish talking about him. Jefra admits that she doesn't trust him (as she shouldn't)
