As night 36 took hold, the four remaining Alinta tribe members took stock of their situation. Angry at some of the things said about her at Tribal Council, Eliza vented her frustration. Final Four converged for an Immunity Challenge that was the first-ever Survivor vertical maze. The Castaways must navigate through a huge, eight-level vertical maze. The challenge started in a flurry as all four tribemates hurried into the massive vertical labyrinth. It was a close competition as each Castaway collected their letter pairs.
The next day the remaining Alinta members were instructed to paddle across the way to Chief Roy Matta's resting place, where they would pay their respects to their fallen tribemates.

Whoever falls off the platform or releases the arrow to pierce a paper marker is eliminated.
