Again, there is no Crusoe on TV tonight. On my previous post, I listed the schedule of the last 5 episodes of Cruose including the finale. Well, since I didn’t blog about last week’s episode, then I will write about it tonight. So Crusoe has been trying to help the captain Taylor whose ship had been taken over by the mutineers. The ship was broken though (see episode 4 recap here), but Olivia came and told Crusoe that the ship has been repaired and would sail in 48 hours. Captain Taylor and the prisoners had been moved to a brig on the ship.

Of course Crusoe was elated, because that ship could bring him back home. However, he knew that he would have to help captain Taylor. Crusoe believed that once captain Taylor’s reign was returned he would take him and Friday back to England. So, Crusoe and Friday made a plan to steal the mutineers boat and free the captain before they could leave the island. Olivia convinced Crusoe he needed her help to take the ship.

However, their plan didn’t go smoothly, a traitor in the captain’s crew spoiled their plans. Curious with the rest of the story? Watch the full episode at NBC.com/crusoe. Below is a clip from that episode, enjoy ūüėÄ

Just a friendly reminder that Crusoe will not air tonight (Friday) because it has been moved permanently to Saturday at 8 pm EST. So tune in tomorrow night to NBC to watch the latest episode of Crusoe ūüôā

¬†Before I get to this week’s Crusoe, I just want to pass on NBC’s little announcement: Crusoe will move to Saturdays 8 pm EST in 2 weeks. Most likely, there won’t be new episode of Crusoe nex week (Friday or Saturday), and I’ve confirmed it from NBC’s schedule. So new episode of Crusoe will air on December 6 at 8 pm EST.

So this week on Crusoe, Friday got poisoned by poisonous honey he ate. He had a major hallucination and attacked Crusoe. Crusoe managed to contained him by locking Friday up on bamboo cage. Crusoe then tried to find an antidote, and with help with Olivia, a pirate girl disguised as a man, who had medicinal knowledge. Together the tried to find the antidote plant (with minor flirting). Once they found the plant, they had to find Friday who escaped from the cage.

While in pain, Friday who tought that Crusoe was his enemy, tried to kill Crusoe. He even managed to put Crusoe on bamboo cage and almost shot him with an arrow. Crusoe tried to remind Friday about their friendship and everything they’d been through. Friday became confused for a moment before attacking Crusoe again. After seeing Crusoe as his father, Friday ran away. Crusoe and Olivia then devised a plan to catch Friday where Crusoe became a bait. The plan worked out well, and Friday was cured.

It was obvious that Olivia had a crush on Crusoe, but Crusoe politely rejected her with Suzanna (his wife) as a shield. We also got to see Crusoe’s good bye to his wife because he had to flee. He remembered that it was 6 years ago, but I thought according to the book, Crusoe had been stranded for 28 years? Anyways, if you miss this episode, watch it here: Vodpod videos no longer available.

This week on Crusoe, the mutineers are taking a break (from the screen). Instead, Crusoe and Friday met Captain Santana, the Spanish Guard captain (from episode 1), the one who betrayed Friday and Crusoe. He hunted them down to get gold and in the end, he broke the promise of taking them out of the island.

Crusoe and Friday found Friday’s old tribe and found out that they had a new victim for sacrificial ceremony. Despite having the chance to get away from the island using the tribe’s boat, they decided to help the poor victim first. And so they did, but they were surprised that it was Captain Santana. Friday loathed him, and didn’t believe the story that he had a friend among the tribe that was going to be sacrificed too. Of course, Friday didn’t believe him, but Crusoe did. It turned out that Santana’s friend was Friday’s father.

So they worked together to save him. But because Santana was injured during the rescue mission, Crusoe and Friday had to set the diversion, and only Santana and Friday’s father got out on the boat. Friday and Crusoe were stuck on the island again, but they were hopeful now because they knew that this time Captain Santana would come back and get them. Friday also got his revenge on the tribe leader, who once wanted to kill him and almost killed his father.

So this week on Crusoe, the mutineers were still on the island. But Crusoe and Friday found a¬†way to¬†leave the island for good. My favorite moment this week was¬†when Crusoe said, “Ship doesn’t grow on trees.” But then, they found a ship stuck on top of trees ūüėÜ The ship was stuck up during high tides, and on it, they found a corpse, a gun, and a compass. This discovery made Crusoe really excited about the high possiblity of escaping from the island. Even the wind and tide¬†was on their side. Even Friday was becoming more curious about England and the people there.

Unfortunately, their compass was burned, so Crusoe wanted to steal one from the mutineers. They managed to do so, but they were caught when trying to get out from the camp. When they tried to shake off the pursuer, they got lost in the part of island they never wandered to and bad things awaited them. Friday fell on a steep hill, fell into a cave, and got his shoulder dislocated. Luckily the log that hit him didn’t break his leg. Moreover, the high tide was coming.¬†

Friday told Crusoe to just leave him there and¬†took the boat leaving the island. Friday even said that he didn’t belong in England where he would be seen as a slave, but Crusoe said that he was the best friend he ever had and he was determined to help Friday there no matter what prejudice they would face. However, Crusoe couldn’t move the log, and the¬†water¬†was getting higher and higher.¬†Friday promised Crusoe, if he made it out of this incident alive, he’d come with Crusoe to England.

Crusoe had to wrack his brain in order to save Friday, but finally he got an idea. He used rock as weight¬†to lift the log and threw it to the cliff. So Friday was saved, and they came out of the cave. But they were too late, their ship was taken to the sea by tides. But it was a good thing too because their ship wasn’t strong enough to sail over the ocean. It was wrecked before it reached too far. Their stolen compass also broke, so they were back to square one again.

I think I already know what my next week’s post title would be: Crusoe and Friday and the Tribe. It looks like they are going to encounter the native tribe (Friday’s family) and again,¬†other plans in escaping from the island. Anyway, this week’s Crusoe quote: “By borrowing I mean, taking it and never giving it back.”

This week, the peaceful island was once again disrupted by foreigners. This time, a group of people (England ship crews and their hijackers) came to the island. Crusoe, wanting to get out of the island, made a deal with the ship captain that if he successfully gave the captain his commander-ship, the captain would take Crusoe and Friday out of the island. So Crusoe and Friday made a plan to free the captain. Initally, Crusoe wanted to recruit a kind-hearted pirate member, but he turned out to be a woman, and Crusoe hesitated. Their plan B is using the skulls and bones that Friday collected to scare the crews.

The plan worked, but due to some circumstances, they couldn’t help the captain. Friday and Crusoe’s duel exercises come in handy because they had to duel the captain and his right hand man. Friday managed to hurt the mutanerous’ leader, but I doubt he died. Crusoe managed to escape from the ship with few wounds, but the ship crashed into corals, so it looked like they were stuck in the island, and Crusoe still had hopes in leaving the island for good. We’ll see what happens next week.

If you miss Crusoe’s episode, you can always catch it online at nbc.com/crusoe or hulu.com/crusoe. It might not be availabe tonight, but it should be tomorrow. Anyways, here’s a clip from tonight’s episode. Happy watching!

Tonight’s episode tested Crusoe’s and Friday’s friendship. The overall story is almost Indiana Jones-like to me, because it has an adventure to a mysterious tomb.¬†It started with Friday’s nightmare about skull-faced woman leading Friday to the sea. He believed that¬†the woman¬†was trying to¬†give him a message.¬†He told Crusoe about the wandering spirit and the bad feeling he had about this dream but Crusoe didn’t believe him.

The next day, their water supply suddenly stopped. While trying to fix the problem, Crusoe lost his wedding ring, so they had to blow up the hole. It turned out to be a cave inside complete with rock painting telling them that¬†the woman was sacrificed. They also found a box. With Friday’s intellegence, he found out how to open it, and guess what’s inside, a woman’s skull. Another strange thing also happened, the water turned bitter, which interpreted as a bad sign by Friday.¬†So he¬†was determined to put the wandering spirits to a rest.

Crusoe, half-intrigued, followed Friday to unravel the mystery. After crossing a stone beam bridge, they came to the other side of the mountain. There was an altar in front of the lake. By using the box pieces as keys, they opened the tomb and found the remaining bones of the woman. But they weren’t alone, there were wild dogs that guarded the tomb. The dogs only stopped chasing them after Friday threw the bones to the sea (like the spirit wanted). What’s more, once they returned home, they got clean water again. Miraculously, Crusoe found his lost wedding ring, so now he couldn’t help but believe.
