Legends: Rebirth-The Jeweled Crown of Esther
« on: December 12, 2009, 03:18:31 PM »
Episode 26: The Jeweled Crown of Esther

The camera winds and twists its way through a thick jungle of strange and exotic plants. After a few wrong turns, it finally stops in front of an ancient Mayan temple. At the base of the temple, a giant stone head sits. Suddenly, the head’s eyes light up and it begins to speak:

Legends of the Hidden Temple: Rebirth!” These words appear on the screen. “With your guide, Kirk Fogg! And here he is now!”

A middle-aged man wearing a denim shirt and blue jeans swings in on a rope. He drops down and runs up the Steps of Knowledge, microphone in hand.

“Thank you! Thank you, everybody! Nice to see everyone again! It’s good to see you again, Olmec! Welcome to Legends of the Hidden Temple: Rebirth. The rooms are filled with lost treasures protected by mysterious Mayan Temple Guards. Only Olmec knows the legends behind each of these newly discovered treasures in his temple…which one are we gonna hear about today, Olmec?”

“The legend of the Jeweled Crown of Esther,” Olmec replies.

“Ah, the Jeweled Crown of Esther,” Kirk repeats. “Well, the legend is set, and one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the jeweled crown—will it be:

“The Red Jaguars?” The camera zooms in on each team as they are introduced.
“The Blue Barracudas?
“The Green Monkeys?
“The Orange Iguanas?
“The Purple Parrots?
“Or the Silver Snakes?

“They’ll have to pass some tough physical and mental tests, but in the end, only one team will have the right to enter Olmec’s Temple. But first, they have to cross the Moat, and Olmec will tell us how they’ll have to do that today…”

Olmec begins to explain the Moat Crossing:
“Before you, a line of stepping stones extends across the Moat. When Kirk gives the signal, one player from each team will begin walking across the stones to the other side. Once they’re safely across, their partner will cross in the same way. But be sure to step on only the black stones—if you step on a white stone, it will sink, and if you touch the water, you’ll have to go back and start again. Once both players reach the other side, run over and hit the gong.” Kirk hits the Silver Snakes’ gong to demonstrate. “The first four teams to hit their gongs will go on to the next round!”

“All right, let’s go,” says Kirk. “Hey teams, are you ready?”
The six teams scream and cheer in response.
“Are you sure you’re ready?” asks Kirk.
The teams cheer even louder.
“I think they’re ready, Olmec,” says Kirk. “Are you?”
“What do you think?” replies Olmec.
“I’ll take that as a yes,” says Kirk. “On your mark, get set, GO!”

“There they go, onto the stones!” Kirk exclaims as the teams’ first members rush out onto the floating stones. The Green Monkeys’ boy, Silver Snakes’ boy, and Purple Parrots’ girl all make it across in one try, but the rest of the players fall into the Moat. The Green Monkeys’ girl and Purple Parrots’ boy successfully cross as well, and they become the first two teams to gong in. The Blue Barracudas’ boy and Red Jaguars’ girl successfully cross, but the Orange Iguanas’ boy and Silver Snakes’ girl accidentally step on a white stone and fall in the Moat. “Two teams—we need two more!” narrates Kirk. The Red Jaguars’ boy crosses next, and he rushes over to hit his team’s gong. “Oh—make that three teams!” Kirk observes. “We still need one more!” The Orange Iguanas’ boy makes it across successfully on his third try, but the Silver Snakes’ girl slips and falls in the Moat again. The Blue Barracudas’ boy successfully crosses, but the Orange Iguanas’ girl falls in, allowing the Silver Snakes’ girl to make it across and hit her team’s gong to end the Moat crossing.

“That’s it—we’ve got our four teams!” Kirk shouts as he rushes over to stand beside the Silver Snakes. “The Silver Snakes held in there, and they’re goin’ on to the Steps of Knowledge…along with the Purple Parrots!” Kirk briefly pauses between each team’s name to allow the audience to applaud for them. “And the Green Monkeys, and the Red Jaguars! The Orange Iguanas and the Blue Barracudas didn’t quite make it, but they did a great job, too. We’ve got a great gift for ‘em, and here’s what it is!” They receive a $50 gift certificate from Pacsun.

Kirk and the remaining four teams are now standing atop the Steps of Knowledge. “As the quest continues, it’s time now for Olmec to tell us about the Jeweled Crown of Esther. But before he does, teams, pay attention, because your knowledge of the story can bring you a step closer to Olmec’s Temple…”

Olmec begins to tell the story:
“One of the bravest women in history was a young Jewish girl named Esther. She lived in ancient Persia with her uncle Mordecai during the reign of King Xerxes the First. When the king divorced his first wife, he began searching for a new queen, and Xerxes selected Esther from all the maidens of the kingdom to be his queen. Esther was given a small crown, which symbolized her right to rule. Legend has it that one day, while visiting Esther in the palace, Mordecai encountered the king’s chief minister, Haman.
“‘Hey—bow to me, peasant!’ ordered Haman.
“‘Oy vey,’ said Mordecai. ‘Who died and made you boss?’
“Furious, Haman began plotting his revenge. As soon as Haman found out Mordecai was Jewish, he secretly conspired to kill all of the Jews in Xerxes’ kingdom. Mordecai learned of Haman’s plans, and informed Esther as soon as he could.
“‘Haman’s gone meshuga!’ said Mordecai. ‘We’ve gotta do something!’
“‘Don’t worry,’ said Esther. ‘I’ll take care of him.’
“The very next day, Esther held a banquet, and invited Xerxes and Haman as her guests of honor. Over dessert, Esther finally confronted her husband.
“‘Honey,’ she told the king, ‘what would you say if I told you someone is plotting to kill some of your loyal subjects?’
“‘My dear, whatever gave you a silly notion like that?’ asked Xerxes.
“‘My uncle overheard that Haman wants to kill all the Jews in this kingdom…and I’m Jewish!”
“‘What?!’ roared Xerxes. ‘Haman, is this true? I won’t stand for this!’
“Xerxes ordered Haman executed, and the Jews of Persia lived peacefully from then on under their queen, Esther. To thank her, Xerxes replaced Esther’s old crown with a new jewel-encrusted one. Esther’s story remains a testament to being proud of one’s heritage, but her Jeweled Crown has found its way to the Temple. Your quest is to find the Jeweled Crown of Esther and bring it back here.”

“Thanks, Olmec,” replies Kirk. “So tell us, where is the Jeweled Crown?”

“The Jeweled Crown of Esther can be found in the Room of the Secret Password,” Olmec replies. The camera zooms in on the jewel-laden crown on the guardrail of the room before fading back to Kirk.

“Ah, okay,” says Kirk. “All right, teams, you’re now standing on the Steps of Knowledge. In a moment, Olmec’s gonna ask you a question. If you think you know the answer, I want you to stomp down on that ancient marking in front of you. If you’re right, you’re gonna move down to the next level, but if you’re wrong or you run out of time, I’ll give the other teams a chance to answer.” Kirk begins descending the Steps. “The first two teams to make it all the way to the bottom level will be one step closer to Olmec’s Temple. Olmec…we’re now ready for your first question.”

Olmec begins:
“Did Esther live in: Babylon, Persia, or Jerusalem?”
The Green Monkeys ring in. “Persia?”
“That is correct,” Olmec replies. The Green Monkeys step down to the next level.
“Green Monkeys, step down,” Kirk instructs. “Next question.”

“What nationality was Esther: Jewish, Buddhist, or—”
The Silver Snakes ring in. “Jewish.”
“That…is correct,” Olmec responds. The Silver Snakes join the Green Monkeys on the second step.
“Silver Snakes step down, too,” Kirk observes. “Next question, Olmec.”

“Who was king of Persia during Esther’s lifetime: Nebuchadnezzar, Xerxes, or Atahualpa?”
The Red Jaguars ring in. “Zurt-seas…?”
“That is correct,” Olmec replies. The Red Jaguars become the third team to set foot on the second step.
“The Red Jaguars step down now,” Kirk says. “It’s anybody’s game now…next question.”

“Did Xerxes choose Esther to be his: servant—”
The Green Monkeys ring in. “His queen?”
“That is correct,” Olmec replies. The Green Monkeys descend to the penultimate step.
“And now, the Green Monkeys are just one step away from the Temple Games,” explains Kirk. “But remember, we need two teams. Next question.”

“Was Mordecai Esther’s: father, uncle, or—”
The Red Jaguars ring in. “Her uncle.”
“That is correct,” Olmec affirms. The Red Jaguars join the Green Monkeys on the next-to-last step.
“Now the Red Jaguars are also one step away,” Kirk observes. “Still looking for two teams—next question, Olmec.”

“What was the name of the king’s chief minister: Bremen, Haman, or Samson?”
The Green Monkeys ring in. “Haman.”
“That is correct!” Olmec booms.
“And there’s our first team for the Temple Games!” Kirk narrates as the Green Monkeys leap to the bottom and high-ten one another. “We need one more team, though. Who will it be: the Silver Snakes, the Purple Parrots, or the Red Jaguars? Olmec, continue.”

“When Mordecai wouldn’t bow to Haman, did Haman—”
The Red Jaguars ring in early and stumble over the answer. “Uh…he wanted to kill him, and…the rest of his people, too.”
“That…is…CORRECT!” Olmec thunders after a period of silence. The Red Jaguars leap to the bottom step, where the Green Monkeys congratulate them.

“And here are our two teams for the Temple Games!” Kirk shouts as he runs onscreen and stands between them. “It’s the Green Monkeys, and the Red Jaguars! Purple Parrots and Silver Snakes, you guys were great, too; come on down here. We’ve got a great gift for you, too, and here’s what it is!” They receive Gator Golf.

Kirk is now standing between the Red Jaguars and the Green Monkeys on the bottom step. “These two teams are gonna be playing for the right to enter Olmec’s Temple, and they’ll do it right after this!”

The camera flies over Kirk and the two teams, turns to the left, and spirals in on the black lights under Olmec as the title appears onscreen, and we head to a commercial.

Legends: Rebirth-The Jeweled Crown of Esther
« Reply #2 on: December 12, 2009, 06:37:50 PM »
We return from the commercial break to see Kirk standing in front of the Temple with the two remaining teams.

“Welcome back,” he says. “Now, of course, the glory goes to the fastest and the strongest. But first, let’s meet our teams.

“On the Red Jaguars, we have Samantha: she says she likes to play softball and volleyball and she also likes to cook, and her partner Mark likes to swim and he wants to be a chemist when he gets older—let’s hear it for the Red Jaguars!” The audience claps for the brown-eyed girl with shoulder-length black hair and the tall hazel-eyed boy with short, very dark brown hair.

“And on the Green Monkeys, there’s Elizabeth: she plays the violin and she wants to be a singer, and her partner is Noah, and he likes to read horror novels and play golf—give it up for the Green Monkeys!” The audience applauds for the short girl with long blonde hair and green eyes and the slightly taller brown-haired boy with brown eyes.

“All right, are you guys ready?” Kirk asks.

“YEAH!” both teams loudly respond.

“Whoa,” Kirk says, taken aback by their loudness. “Okay, go get ready for the Temple Games, then! Now, in these Temple Games…I almost lost my hearing there…in the Temple Games, our teams are competing for Pendants of Life. Oh, wait…” Kirk retrieves a Pendant from his pouch and holds it up to the camera. “…here’s one right here. These things are more valuable than gold to these teams, because they protect them from the Temple Guards hiding in the Temple. There are three Temple Games—Olmec, tell us about the first one, if you could, please…”

“Aye, aye, captain,” Olmec responds. The black lights under Olmec come on and he begins to explain the first Game:

“After Esther revealed Haman’s plans to King Xerxes, the king gave her a new jewel-encrusted crown to show his appreciation. In this game, you will be gathering jewels for Esther’s crown. Before you stands a large net with several small compartments around its edges. When Kirk gives the signal, propel yourself onto the net, climb up to a compartment, and break it open. If there’s a jewel inside, come down and place it in your bin; otherwise, climb to another compartment and try again. The first player to gather all four jewels or…the player who gathers the most jewels at the end of sixty seconds…wins.”

“Looks like our players have to do a little jewel mining,” says Kirk. “So let’s get started. Set the clock for sixty seconds!” The clock appears onscreen, set for the right time. “On your mark, get set, GO!”

Lizzie and Samantha launch themselves onto the net and break open the cubbyhole closest to them. Lizzie manages to find a ruby in the first one she breaks open, so she comes down and places it in her bin with about 51 seconds left. Samantha finds her first jewel a few seconds later, and brings it down to her bin. After a few seconds of breaking open empty compartments, Lizzie finds a sapphire, and brings it down with 39 seconds on the clock. Samantha finds a purple jewel soon afterward, and drops down to place it in her bin. Lizzie finds another sapphire with about 11 seconds to go, and brings it back down. After finding several empty cubbyholes, Samantha finally finds an emerald, and brings it down with two seconds left. Time runs out soon afterward.

“Okay, that’s it!” Kirk shouts as he appears back onscreen. “That’s it—Lizzie, Sam, come on down and let’s see how we did here. Let me get the baskets here…” Kirk kneels beside the bins and begins to count. “Let’s see—the Red Jaguars got one, two, three jewels. And the Green Monkeys got…one, two—they also got three jewels! Both teams get the half Pendant of Life!” The audience applauds for a few seconds. “So it’s tied up now, but either team could pull ahead in this next game, also worth a half Pendant. Olmec, tell us about Temple Game #2…”

Olmec begins:
“To provide a backdrop for telling the king Haman’s plot, Esther prepared a huge feast. In this game, you will have to set the table for Esther’s feast. When Kirk gives the signal, jump up, grab a napkin, come back and place it in your bin. Then run around, grab another napkin and do it again. The first player to get all their napkins or…the player with the most napkins at the end of sixty seconds…wins.”

“Time to set the table, guys,” Kirk says. “Let’s get sixty seconds on the clock, please!” The clock slams down in the corner with a loud gong sound effect. “On your mark, get set, GO!”

Both guys have some trouble getting napkins, but for different reasons—while Noah has trouble jumping up high enough to get them, Mark develops a bad rhythm after grabbing and dropping his first two in the bin. Noah catches up with Mark with about 24 seconds left, and by this time, Mark has developed a better rhythm. They both grab a napkin and drop it in their bin every time they swing around from then on, and time finally expires.

“Okay, stop spinning!” Kirk shouts as he rushes back onscreen. “Stop spinning and come on over here, guys. They had a little trouble getting them there at the start, but they got the hang of it…let’s count ‘em up and see how they did.” Kirk kneels beside the bins after a spotter sets them both in front of him. “I don’t know—it looks pretty even. Let’s start with the Red Jaguars; they got one, two, three, four, five napkins. And the Green Monkeys got…one, two, three, four…five napkins! Both teams get another half Pendant of Life!” The audience applauds for a few seconds. “So now, we’re all tied up with a Pendant apiece. But the third and final Temple Game could change all that in a hurry. It’s worth a full Pendant of Life—Olmec, tell us about Temple Game #3…”

Olmec begins to explain the final Temple Game:
“Once the king did away with Haman, the Jewish people in Persia celebrated, and the city was decorated in lavish trimmings. In this game, you will also be doing some decorating. When Kirk gives the signal, begin climbing up the ancient Persian tower you’re attached to, with your team’s flag in tow. When you reach the top, place the flag on the tower’s summit. The first team to place their flag…wins.”

“This is for the Temple,” Kirk explains. “We’re not gonna set the clock for this one, so players, get ready—on your mark, get set, GO!”

Both teams are neck-and-neck as the game progresses. The Red Jaguars pull a little ahead, but Mark slips a bit, and has to regain his footing. This allows the Green Monkeys to gain a slight lead. About ten seconds later, the Green Monkeys place their green flag on their tower’s top.

“All right, they got it,” says Kirk as he appears onscreen a few seconds later. “Come on down here, everybody…the Green Monkeys put the flag on their tower first, so the Green Monkeys get the half—or the full Pendant, giving them two; the Red Jaguars only have one—the Green Monkeys are goin’ to the Temple!” Lizzie and Noah applaud excitedly. “Red Jaguars, come over here; you guys were great, too. We’re not sending you guys home empty-handed—we’ve got a great gift for you, and here it is!” They receive World of Zoo for the Nintendo Wii.

As the prize disappears off-screen, Kirk is seen standing between Lizzie and Noah. “They did it—now can the Green Monkeys make it through Olmec’s Temple? Can they retrieve the Jeweled Crown of Esther? We’ll find out right after this!”

The camera pans in on a plant-filled area beside the Temple and zooms in on a group of silk orchids as the title appears onscreen, and we fade to a commercial.

Legends: Rebirth-The Jeweled Crown of Esther
« Reply #3 on: December 12, 2009, 07:08:29 PM »
We return from the break to find Kirk standing in front of the Temple with the winning team.

“Welcome back to Legends: Rebirth,” he says. “Lizzie and Noah have proven themselves worthy, and now have earned the right to enter Olmec’s Temple. But first, Olmec’s gonna give them some information to help them retrieve the Jeweled Crown of Esther…”

Olmec begins to explain the Temple layout as the camera gives us a first-person walkthrough of the Temple:
“You could start…by running up the stairs to the Crypt! Grab the book from the skeletons, and pass into the Bottomless Pit! Swing across the gap, and climb into the Lunar Landing. Align the puzzle on the satellite, and a door may open into the Clockwork Room. Set the clocks for the correct time, and pass into the Room…of the Mystical Keys! Reach into the compartments to find the two correct keys, and open the door to the SHRIIIIINE of the Silver Monkey! Assemble the statue and you may be headed toward the Room…of the Secret Password. Find the tablet with the correct inscription and shout it out to open the door to the Pharaoh’s Secret Passage. Slide down the tunnel to the Dungeon, where you could smash through the wall into the Dark Forest—but beware of the Temple Guards that may inhabit the trees! Find the key in the tree, and you’ll enter…the Jungle Ruins! Climb over the ruins, and you’ll gain entry to the Atlantean Altar. Uncover the tile that lets in the waters of Atlantis, then…race through the Pit, climb through the Ledges, race down the stairs and back through the Temple Gate. The choices are yours and yours alone!” Olmec pauses. “You won 2 Pendants in the Temple Games. Who’s going first?”

“I am,” says Lizzie, raising her hand.

“Very well, Lizzie,” Olmec replies. “When Kirk gives the signal, you’ll race through the Gate into the Temple and make your way toward the Jeweled Crown of Esther. Hidden inside the Temple are Temple Guards assigned to protect three specific rooms. You can trade your Pendant for an extra life and go on, but…if you’re caught without a Pendant, you’ll be taken out of the Temple, and it’ll be Noah’s turn to enter and try his luck. If you can reach the Jeweled Crown, all the doors of the Temple will instantly unlock, and the Temple Guards will vanish. Return through the Gates with the Jeweled Crown in three minutes, and you’ll both be handsomely rewarded…and here’s how!”

• Just for making it this far, they’ll get a digital camera.
• If they can grab the Jeweled Crown within three minutes, they’ll also receive an Xbox 360, complete with two new games.
• And if they can bring the Jeweled Crown out of the Temple before three minutes expires, they’ll win a trip to Montréal.

“Ooh, Montreal,” Kirk observes. “Let’s see if they can do it…Lizzie, you get out in front here. Mouthpieces in…let’s set the clock for three minutes!” The clock slams down in the bottom right-hand corner, ready to go.

“Olmec, lower your gate,” Kirk requests. Olmec moans gutturally as the gate is lowered, and the black lights under him go out.

“Are you ready?” Kirk asks Lizzie, who nods in response.

“Okay,” Kirk says. “On your mark, get set, GO!”

Lizzie dashes up the Temple steps, clutching her Pendant of Life like a valuable locket. She soon enters the Crypt (2:54), where she pulls all three books before the door to the Bottomless Pit opens (2:47). She enters the Pit, grabs the rope, and swings across. She hits the actuators for both the Clockwork Room and the Lunar Landing, however, only the door to the Landing opens. “Whoop—looks like she’s only got one option of where to go!” Kirk accurately narrates. Lizzie progresses into the Lunar Landing (2:32), looks around for a second, and finally heads to the back of the room, where she begins lining up the puzzle on the satellite. After nearly thirty seconds at the satellite-shaped column, a loud roar is heard in the room, the familiar “Liftoff! We have liftoff!” sound effect is heard, and the door to the Clockwork Room opens (2:04). “All right—liftoff into the Clockwork Room!” Kirk exclaims. Lizzie begins climbing down into the Clockwork Room, but the second she steps off the ladder, the first TEMPLE GUARD makes her scream like a banshee (1:55).

“Oh, there’s that first Temple Guard!” Kirk exclaims as Lizzie hands over her Pendant. “But she’s got a Pendant, so she can keep going!” The Temple Guard whispers something to Lizzie before he slinks into the shadows. She goes over to the stage-left clocks and begins to set them all for twelve o’clock. Once they’re all set, she moves to the stage-right clocks, and once they are all set, the door to the Atlantean Altar opens, as does the door back to the Bottomless Pit (1:28). Lizzie tries to backtrack back into the Bottomless Pit, but soon realizes her mistake and begins to climb down into the Atlantean Altar. However, she only has time to step off the ladder into the room before the second TEMPLE GUARD jumps out from hiding (1:16).

“Oh, second Temple Guard! Go, Noah!” Kirk instructs, and Noah begins to trot up the stairs, disappearing behind Olmec within a good four seconds. He solidly follows Lizzie’s path, even though he takes quite a while to climb down the ladders into each room in the Temple’s central column. Finally, he reaches the Atlantean Altar (0:34), where he looks around for a couple of seconds as if to say “What do I do now?” “He’s gotta pull the tiles off the wall,” Kirk explains. “Pull ‘em off the back wall!” Noah notices the tiles, and begins knocking them off the wall. After five tries, the top right-hand tile reveals cascades of blue light, opening the door to the Jungle Ruins (0:17). “Okay, now he’s headed to the Jungle Ruins!” Kirk narrates as Noah enters the room through the now-open door. “Fifteen seconds—it’s gonna be close!” Noah laboriously climbs over the plants, rocks, and other obstacles in the room, finally reaching the other side (0:03). He hits the actuator for the Dark Forest, which opens; unfortunately, we’re out of time!

“Oh…out of time!” Kirk laments as Lizzie looks disappointed. “They cleared out a good path, but they couldn’t get the Crown in time! Oh, too bad—I know they had a good time, though, and they still get the camera for being such good sports. We had a great time—I hope you did, too. We’ll see ya next time, but just remember: it’s not just Legends, it’s Legends: Rebirth! Buh-bye!”

Kirk and Lizzie chat and wave to the audience as the credits begin to roll. Close-ups are seen of the Atlantean Altar and the Jungle Ruins, as well as a small stone statue somewhere onset. Noah appears beside Kirk and Lizzie, and he chats with them before the Stone Stanley logo appears onscreen.

Legends: Rebirth-The Jeweled Crown of Esther
« Reply #4 on: December 12, 2009, 07:10:18 PM »


The Jeweled Crown of Esther
Season 1, Layout 3
Artifact Location
: The Room of the Secret Password
Team: Green Monkeys (Elizabeth “Lizzie” Riley & Noah Johnston)
Pendants: 2
Result: Ran out of time

Did anyone else have a “The Dried Apple Half of William Tell” flashback during this Temple Run? The path taken by the team was almost identical to that episode (minus the trek into the Ledges), even though the artifact was in a different room.

Lizzie was not only slow, she had only one choice of where to go during the whole run—whether to start in the Crypt or the Ledges. She spent forever trying to line up the satellite in the Lunar Landing, and she couldn’t figure out which way to go from there. She even tried to go back to the Pit on one occasion! After setting the clocks in the Clockwork Room (possibly with help from the Temple Guard there), she was taken out in the Atlantean Altar with 1:16 to go.

Noah, unfortunately, was much worse than Lizzie. He was one of the slowest contestants in Legends history, and he took forever to climb down the ladders into each room. If I can say anything positive about him, at least he didn’t pull a “Lauren”, making it quite a bit farther than she did. Time ran out as he was about to hit the actuator that would open the door to the Dark Forest.

I consider this episode a tried-and-true “filler episode”. Nothing very exciting occurred save the tie on the first two Temple Games, and the run is a typical loss that features a trek down the central shaft of the Temple.

Rating: 3 out of 10

Notes & Trivia: The third Temple Game in this episode is the only untimed Temple Game in Rebirth history.

Before Lizzie set the clocks in the Clockwork Room, the Temple Guard that had previously taken her Pendant in that room whispered something to her. Seeing as how the door was open and Lizzie couldn’t see what time to set the clocks for, he may have told Lizzie that the clocks needed to be set for 12:00. If he didn’t, she sure made a lucky guess as to the correct time…

Damn... Pretty slow team this time around.  I usually have trouble figuring out just how slow a player can really be, so I guess this is a good example for me to go by, heheh. :P

And quite the coincidence that this team was also a Green Monkeys team, like the William Tell team. :B The only real thing I can give them is that they're lucky starting on the top floor worked for them, otherwise they probably would've lost a serious amount of time in the Pit and possibly only made four rooms at the rate they were going.

Nice episode, but in the Temple Run, it said that Lizzie was taken out with 1:16 left, but in the summary, it said she was taken out with 1:40 left. But other than that, good episode. :)
