With Nadiya voted off the island in last week's premiere, Survivor Season 29 Episode 2 promised plenty of fallout, along with alliances, twists and turns.

First off, Josh explained why he put Baylor’s name down, in an attempt to hide their alliance and knowing she would be safe. She isn't certain she buys it.

Meanwhile, Jon lost the flint, and pleas for forgiveness fell upon deaf ears early in Survivor Season 29 Episode 2. Soon, though, it was challenge time.

Fishing equipment was at stake, and the tribes again had to select someone to compete against their loves in a puzzle course slash balancing act.

John Rocker was selected for Coyopa to compete against girlfriend Julie, who won going away and sent Jeremy off to Exile Island along with her boyfriend.

The tribe tried to engineer a deal with Jeff Probst to trade their beans for another flint, but the best he would offer was a flint instead of the fishing gear.

Suck It Up and Survive.

The title of Survivor Season 29 Episode 1 could basically apply to any installment in this or 28 prior seasons, but darned if we aren't excited all over again.

The setting is San Juan del Sur, with loved ones pitted against each other - Blood vs. Water style - and a solid cast of characters. Chief among them?

John Rocker.

The former, possibly racist Major League Baseball player had a hard time staying anonymous, even though it's been years since he pitched.

Wes Nale, a big Braves fan from Louisiana, figured him out pretty quickly, as did his father Keith, on the other team and later on Exile Island.

Amusingly, Rocker is going by the name of John Wetteland, another relief pitcher from his time in the MLB, and a name even less recognizable.

The new season of Survivor pits loved ones against each other. Thus the subtitle, Blood vs. Water! What other twists lie in store? And who's been cast?

Survivor: Blood vs. Water Cast

Starting September 29, the season will be comprised of 39-and-a-half days, kicking off with "Day Zero," where 10 pairs of loved ones will be sent off.

"The whole idea was to try and get them thinking and maybe believing that they would play as a pair,” Jeff Probst teases of the season's angle.

The loved ones will then be split into two tribes, with returning players on Galang and their "partners" on Tadhana. That should be a fun twist.

Redemption Island will make its return after three seasons, with contestants permitted to swap places with their loved ones following duels.

As for the actual Survivor: Blood vs. Water cast members? They are ...

"Dr. just called with blood test results ... I have West Nile. Ugh," Welchel, 49, tweeted, adding that she should recover fully and is more or less "fine, just tired."
