Loyalties Will Be Broken is the season finale of Survivor: South Pacific.
After being voted out, Brandon goes to Redemption Island and approaches a then-sleeping Ozzy. Brandon then informs Ozzy about giving up his Immunity Necklace and being duped by Coach. Brandon cites: "I fell on my sword for Albert last night and I was stabbed by another sword in the back." Surprised by Brandon's statements Ozzy reacted: "He's playing the game like he's playing with God, and he's not! He's playing with human beings that are greedy and want that money."
Back at the Te Tuna camp, Sophie was dumbfounded by Albert not willing to return the necklace back to Brandon, yet also happy because his move ended up as cowardly, and that Albert Destrade will not sit well about this. Sophie says: "Tribal is crazy."
Ozzy and Brandon competed in the final duel. The challenge lasted for about 40 minutes before Brandon dropped out. When Ozzy joined the rest of the tribe, Coach told him that he was still hoping that they would both be in the final two.
At the Immunity Challenge, Sophie asks Albert to help her build the house of cards so she can win and the original Upolu members can vote Ozzy off. Jeff tells them that it is an individual challenge and that no helping is allowed. Ozzy then wins. Before Tribal Council Ozzy is annoyed with Sophie for asking for help in the challenge and tells Rick he is voting for her. Rick tells him he is also planing on voting for Sophie. Ozzy then told Albert to vote for Sophie and also about Coach's promise he had made to take him to the final three. Albert tells Coach who is upset because he asked Ozzy to keep the promise a secret. At Tribal Council, Coach and Albert vote for Rick because Sophie has a better chance of beating Ozzy at the next Immunity Challenge. Ozzy and Rick voted for Sophie. When Rick leaves, Coach tries to give him a hug, but he is mad at Coach and tells him to have a seat.
Coach tells Ozzy he is upset that he told Albert about their plan to go the final three. Ozzy has a big lead at the Immunity Challenge, but ultimately, Sophie wins. At Tribal Council, Coach ends up voting for Ozzy, and Ozzy is eliminated in a 3-1 vote.
At the Final Tribal Council, Albert receives no votes, Coach receives 3 (from Cochran, Edna, and Rick), and Sophie gets 6 votes (from Keith, Jim, Dawn, Whitney, Brandon, and Ozzy), making her the 22nd person to win the title of Sole Survivor.

|“||(voting for Sophie) Didn't mean to make her cry, but I still think it.||”|
|“||All the honesty, integrity, all that stuff, and Coach stood up, "Oh, don't be that way." It's like, "Sit down. Don't be (expletive censor) down my back and tell me it's raining."

|“||Three times in Survivor getting your torch snuffed out is kind of surreal. But the jury clapped for me. I mean, that was just such an awesome feeling. You know, I just played as good a social game as I possibly could have with a few mistakes here and there which I think led me to redemption. But it is what it is. Que sera, sera.||”|
Final Tribal Council
|“||(voting for Coach) You know, if you wipe out all the garbage about honor, integrity, and love and compassion, you played a great game, man. You have nothing to apologize for. I really hope the rest of the jury isn't super bitter and votes based on, you know, who played the best game, because it was you, Coach. So I-I-I hope you win.||”|
|“||(voting for Sophie) I'm excited for you because I think you're going to have a million reasons to smile.||”|
