Peacock's The Traitors US S2 E9 "A Game of Death" recap with Sandra Diaz-Twine, Stephenie LaGrossa

Two-time Survivor winner Sandra Diaz-Twine has been playing an exceptional game on the second season of Peacock's Emmy-Award winning competition show, The Traitors. This week, she joins Stephenie LaGrossa Kendrick and Jack on the Jack Vita Show, as they recap The Traitors S2 E9 "A Game of Death".

Jack is traveling and recorded this episode from an Airbnb in Nashville. Unfortunately, his audio quality was not up to par in this episode. Our sincere apologies; we will do better next time.

Episode 9 opens with Kate entering the dungeon and being presented an ultimatum: join the traitors, or be murdered. Kate accepts, and is floored when Phaedra asks her, "What's our strategy going forward?" Moments later, Kevin becomes the sixth faithful murdered, eliminating the Bling Empire alum from contention.

The next morning at breakfast, MJ thinks Kate is acting shady, and calls her out in front of a group of people. Suspicion begins to surround Peter, after he proactively fought to keep Parvati in the game the night before. As Peter is targeted by the Bravo clique, he, Trishelle and John see the writing on the wall and believe that they will be the next three contestants eliminated, unless they are able to flip the script. The Peter pals try to form a plan. Peter pulls CT into a room, and CT tells Peter that he he's convinced that the former Bachelor star is a traitor.

At the mission, Phaedra makes a major blunder. Sandra suggests to Phaedra that they change the order in which they are shooting at the targets, taking aim at Trishelle. Trishelle and CT make immediate notice of this, and CT realizes that Phaedra is a traitor. Later, CT approaches Trishelle and informs her that his opinion has shifted and that he will vote for Phaedra at the night's roundtable.

Peter pulls Phaedra into a room, in an attempt to freeze Phaedra out from other conversations. Trishelle appeals to the Bravos, laying out a compelling case that Phaedra is a traitor.

The episode ends on a cliffhanger, with four votes being cast for Peter and four for Phaedra, with MJ's vote to be revealed at the start of Episode 10.

Jack and Stephenie recap the episode and share their initial thoughts (0:00 - 23:45). Then, Sandra joins the conversation (23:45 - 1:21:05). Sandra answers questions about Episode 9 and everything that has happened up to this point! Is Sandra committed to the Bravos, or is she playing both sides? Why did she vote for Peter instead of Phaedra in this week's roundtable? Where did she and Parvati stand entering the season, and how are things between the two of them now? Stephenie and Sandra discuss and compare their experiences from their respective time in the castle. Sandra gives us a peak behind the curtain and shares some of the juiciest info that wasn't shown on The Traitors. All this, and so much more!

Later, Steph and Jack share their predictions for Episode 10 (1:21:05 - END).
