Title: Legends: Rebirth-The Scorched Cake Pan of Alfred the Great
Post by: The Bandit King on January 31, 2010, 08:53:29 AM
Episode 30: The Scorched Cake Pan of Alfred the Great

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 Scorched Cake Pan of Alfred the Great,” Olmec replies.

“Ah, the Scorched Cake Pan of Alfred the Great,” Kirk repeats. “Well, the legend is set, and one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the scorched cake pan—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 earn the right to enter Olmec’s Temple. But first, they have to cross the Moat, and Olmec will tell us how they have to do it today…”

Olmec begins to explain the Moat Crossing:
“Before you stands an abandoned fishing net, and beside it, an old vine. When Kirk gives the signal, one player from each team will grab the vine and swing out to the net, grab onto it, and begin climbing. Once you reach the top, drop down and dash to the other side. Once you’re safely across, it’ll be your partner’s turn to cross in the same way. If you touch the water before you grab onto the net, you must 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 get started,” Kirk says. “Hey teams, are you ready?”
The six teams scream and cheer in response.
“Olmec, are you ready?” asks Kirk.
“Wouldn’t miss it for the world,” Olmec replies.
“On your mark,” Kirk begins, “get set, GO!”

All six teams grab the vine and swing out to the net. Everyone grabs onto it except the Orange Iguanas’ boy and the Red Jaguars’ girl, who fall in the water and go back to start again. The other four team members begin climbing the net, and they all make it to the top within about ten seconds. “They’re at the top, now they’ve gotta come down!” Kirk narrates. The Red Jaguars’ girl and Orange Iguanas’ boy are both climbing the net as the other four teams get their first member across, and the other members start swinging across. Everyone grabs the net except the Blue Barracudas’ girl, who slips and falls just before she reaches the net. Everyone else begins climbing to the top of the net. The Red Jaguars’ girl and the Orange Iguanas’ boy have now made it to the other side, and their partners now grab the vine and swing out. The Blue Barracudas’ girl has now grabbed the net, and is about halfway to the top. The Purple Parrots’ boy has now dropped off the net, and dashes for the other side, scrambles out of the water, and hits her team’s gong. The Green Monkeys’ girl and Silver Snakes’ girl also reach the other side, and they hit their gongs within about two seconds of the Purple Parrots. “Two…three teams, we need one more!” Kirk narrates. As the Orange Iguanas’ girl falls off the net, the Blue Barracudas’ girl reaches the top of the net, where she swings over and climbs down a short distance before she drops off, rushes to the other side, climbs out of the water with help from her partner, and hits her team’s gong to end the Moat Crossing.

“That’s it—we’ve got our four teams right there!” Kirk shouts as he rushes over and stands beside the Silver Snakes. “That was a close race, but as you know, we can only take four teams, and goin’ on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Silver Snakes…and the Purple Parrots…” Kirk pauses between each team’s name to allow the audience to applaud. “…and the Green Monkeys…and the Blue Barracudas! The Red Jaguars and the Orange Iguanas came close, but didn’t quite make it; we’ve got a great gift for them for playing, and here’s what it is!” They receive a $50 gift certificate from GameStop.

Kirk and the four remaining teams are now standing atop the Steps of Knowledge. “As the quest continues, it’s now time for Olmec to tell us about the Scorched Cake Pan of Alfred the Great. But teams, pay attention, because it’s your knowledge of the legend that can bring you a step closer to Olmec’s Temple…”

Olmec begins to tell the story:
“One of the noblest leaders in the history of England was King Alfred the Great. Known as a well-learned man, Alfred encouraged education and made significant improvements to England’s law system, but he is best remembered as a fearless warrior. In 875 AD, the Danish Vikings invaded England and managed to conquer the island of Lindesfarne in the north. Alfred fled to the Somerset Moors in the south to develop a strategy for defeating the Vikings. He wore a disguise, and sought shelter to do his thinking, eventually boarding in the home of an old peasant woman. Unaware of his identity, the woman took him in, and gave him food and a place to sleep. Legend has it that one day, she asked Alfred for a favor.
“‘Sweetie, could you watch this cake for me and make sure it doesn’t burn?’
“‘Hm? Oh, sure…’
“Preoccupied with his problems with the Vikings, Alfred was too busy thinking to watch the cake as it baked, and it burned to a crisp. When the woman returned, she had some stern words for him.
“‘You were supposed to watch my cake for me! How are you going to expect to get anywhere in life if you don’t pay attention?’
“The lady then got a good look at Alfred’s face for the first time, and finally recognized her houseguest.
“‘Your highness, I’m so sorry! I didn’t mean it! Please, don’t punish me!’
“‘No, I should be apologizing to you,’ Alfred said. ‘You entrusted me with a job, and I didn’t do it. Please forgive me.’
“Taking his experience to heart, Alfred went on to successfully defeat the Vikings. The woman threw out the burnt cake pan, and it eventually found its way to the Temple. Your quest is to find the Scorched Cake Pan of Alfred the Great and bring it back here.”

“Thanks, Olmec,” says Kirk. “So tell us, where is the cake pan?”

“The Scorched Cake Pan of Alfred the Great can be found…in the Ancient Cave,” Olmec replies. The camera zooms in on a large, round, blackened pan sitting on the guardrail of the room, and then cuts back to Kirk.

“Teams, you’re now standing on the Steps of Knowledge,” Kirk explains. “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’ll be able to move down to the next level, but if you’re wrong or you run out of time, I’m gonna give the other teams a chance to answer.” Kirk begins descending the Steps. “The first two teams to make it to the bottom level will be one step closer to Olmec’s Temple. Olmec, we’re now ready for your first question.”
Olmec begins:

“Was Alfred the Great king of: Spain, Austria, or Great Britain?”
The Green Monkeys ring in. “England?”
“That…is correct,” Olmec replies after a little hesitation. The Green Monkeys step to the second step.
“Green Monkeys are first on the board,” Kirk narrates. “Next question, Olmec.”

“Did Alfred improve: the law system, the cost of living, or the minimum wage?”
The Purple Parrots ring in after the third choice is given. “The…law system?”
“That is correct,” Olmec replies. The Purple Parrots join the Green Monkeys on the second step.
“Purple Parrots are right behind ‘em,” Kirk explains. “Next question.”

“During Alfred’s reign as king, who invaded Great Britain: the Huns—”
The Green Monkeys ring in. “The Vikings.”
“That is correct,” Olmec affirms. The Green Monkeys step to the penultimate step.
“And now, the Green Monkeys are just one step away from the Temple Games,” Kirk observes. “But remember, we need two teams. Next question, please.”

“Why did Alfred flee when the Vikings invaded: to get his weapons, to come up with a strategy, or to hide from them?”
The Silver Snakes ring in. “Uh…to…hide from ‘em?”
“Incorrect,” Olmec replies.
The Green Monkeys ring in. “To, uh…come up with a strategy.”
That …is correct!” Olmec responds. The Green Monkeys leap to the bottom step, where they high-ten one another.
“And we have our first team right there!” Kirk exclaims. “We still need one more team. Will it be the Purple Parrots, the Blue Barracudas, or the Silver Snakes? Olmec, continue, please.”

“Who owned the house that Alfred hid in: a burglar, an old woman, or—”
The Blue Barracudas ring in. “An old lady!”
“That is correct,” Olmec replies. The Blue Barracudas proceed to the second step.
“Nice job, Blue Barracudas,” Kirk remarks. “They step down…and we go on to the next question.”

“What did the old woman ask Alfred to do for her—”
The Purple Parrots ring in. “Uh, watch a cake while it baked…?”
“That is correct,” Olmec replies. The Purple Parrots step to the next-to-last level.
“And now the Purple Parrots are only one step away,” Kirk narrates. “Still time for the other teams to catch up, though. Next question, Olmec.”

“What happened to the cake Alfred was supposed to watch—”
The Blue Barracudas ring in. “Uh, it…burned.”
“That…is correct,” Olmec replies. The Blue Barracudas join the Purple Parrots on the next-to-last step.
“Now the Blue Barracudas are just one step away, too,” Kirk narrates. “Still time to catch up—for the Silver Snakes to catch up. Next question.”

“What did the old woman do with the scorched cake pan—”
The Purple Parrots ring in before the choices are even given. “Uh…she took it, and threw it out, and…now it’s in the Temple?”
Olmec doesn’t say anything for a few seconds, but finally bellows: “That is absolutely correct!”

“Whoa! We’ve got our two teams!” Kirk exclaims as the surprised Purple Parrots jump to the bottom level. He rushes over to stand between the two advancing teams. “They are the Green Monkeys, and the Purple Parrots! Nice job, guys! Blue Barracudas and Silver Snakes, you did a great job, too; we’ve got a great gift for you, too, and here’s what it is!” They receive a package of Nicktoon-related games for the Nintendo DS Lite.

Kirk is now standing between the two teams at the bottom of the Steps of Knowledge. “These two teams are gonna go head-to-head in the Temple Games, and we’ll see that right after this!”

The camera flies over Kirk and the teams and zooms in on the Purple Parrots’ torch near the top of the Steps of Knowledge as the title appears onscreen, and we go to a commercial.

Post by: The Bandit King on February 01, 2010, 06:25:39 PM
We return from the break to see Kirk standing in front of the Temple with the two remaining teams on either side of him.

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

“On the Green Monkeys, we have Stephanie—she likes to play soccer, and she also wants to be an artist when she gets older. And her partner here is Alex—his favorite subjects are math and history, and he holds the record on his school’s track team for the fastest hundred-yard-dash—let’s see if he can put that to good use in the Temple Games. Let’s hear it for the Green Monkeys!” The audience claps for the tall brown-eyed girl with back-length auburn hair and the equally tall brown-eyed boy with brown hair and deeply tanned skin.

“And over on the Purple Parrots, we have Callie—she likes to sing, and she wants to be a pediatrician when she gets older. And her partner is Shane—he likes science and math, and he hopes to invent a cure for a major disease someday—good luck with that. Let’s give a hand to the Purple Parrots!” The audience applauds for the Asian girl with shoulder-length black hair and the tall brown-eyed boy with dark hair and glasses.

“All right—are you guys ready to play?” Kirk asks the teams.

“Yeah!” they all reply.

“Okay—go get ready for the Temple Games. Now, in the Temple Games, our teams are competing for…” Kirk retrieves a Pendant of Life from his pouch and holds it up to the camera. “…Pendants of Life. Why? The winners will need the Pendants they win to protect themselves from the dreaded Temple Guards as they make their way through Olmec’s Temple. There are three Temple Games. Olmec, will you tell us about the first one, please?”

“I’d be happy to,” Olmec replies. The black lights under Olmec come on as he begins to explain the first Game:

“When his armies were losing to the Vikings, Alfred retreated to the Somerset Moors in the south of Great Britain on a fast horse. In this game, you will see what it might have been like on Alfred’s rough journey there. When Kirk gives the signal, hold on tight, because the horse you’re riding will begin to gallop. If you fall off, your partner will receive a point. The player with the most points at the end of thirty seconds…wins.”

“Heading to the Moors on a horse with no name,” Kirk jokes, getting a few chuckles out of the audience. “Let’s set the clock for thirty seconds!” The clock slams down in the bottom right-hand corner with a loud gong. “On your mark, get set, GO!”

Stephanie and Callie each hold on to the sandbags as the spotters agitate them, and neither one falls off for the first few seconds of the game. Callie falls off with 17 seconds left, scoring the Green Monkeys a point. After the spotters start agitating the sandbags more vigorously, Stephanie falls off with ten seconds left. Callie falls off with four seconds left, and just as she gets back on, time expires.

“All right, that’s it!” Kirk shouts as he rushes back onscreen. “Come on down—it’s not easy to hold on, I know! Well, the Green Monkeys fell off once, but the Purple Parrots fell off twice, so the Green Monkeys get the half Pendant of Life!” He pauses to allow the audience to applaud. “The Purple Parrots can catch up in this next Temple Game, worth a half Pendant. Olmec, tell us about Temple Game #2…”

Olmec begins:
“Alfred the Great was asked to watch a cake bake so it didn’t burn. In this game, you will be helping the cake bake in the oven. When Kirk gives the signal, adjust your weight and begin running to turn the giant pan you’re standing on so the edges of the cake don’t burn. The player who makes the most rotations at the end of sixty seconds…wins.”

“I can’t wait to eat this giant cake when we’re done,” Kirk says, pointing to the Green Monkeys’ Pendant-shaped wheel. “Let’s set the clock for sixty seconds, please!” The clock slams down in the corner with the usual gong sound effect. “There we go—on your mark, get set, GO!”

Shane is pretty fast, and has good footing on the Pendant-shaped wheel; however, Alex is slightly faster. With 22 seconds left, Alex loses his footing and falls off, allowing Shane to try to catch up. Shane falls off with about 13 seconds to go, allowing Alex to increase his lead some more. Alex falls off a second time with four seconds left, but Shane has very little time to catch up as time expires soon afterwards.

“All right, that’s it!” Kirk shouts as he runs back onscreen. “Stop spinning the giant cakes! Whoa…let’s come over here and count up how many we’ve got—it looks like the Purple Parrots got nine rotations, but the Green Monkeys got—whoa! Twelve rotations! That means the Green Monkeys get the half Pendant of Life!” The audience applauds for a few seconds. “So now, the Green Monkeys have a half—or no, they have a full Pendant; the Purple Parrots still don’t have any. But now, we go to the third and final Temple Game. It’s worth a full Pendant of Life—Olmec, tell us about Temple Game #3…”

Olmec begins to explain the final Game:
“Taking his experience with the old lady to heart, Alfred returned to the north, where he drove the Vikings out of England. You are about to help Alfred do this. Before you stands an army of Viking invaders. When Kirk gives the signal, load your slingshot and shoot a cannonball at one of the Vikings. Then, your partner will shoot a ball. The first team to knock down all four Vikings, or…the team that knocks over the most Vikings in sixty seconds…wins.”

“It’s a Viking invasion,” says Kirk. “Let’s get started—let’s set the clock for sixty seconds!” The clock slams down in the corner, ready to go. “Lemme get out of the way first—all right, ready, aim, FIRE!”

The Green Monkeys manage to knock over one of their targets on their first shot, but the Purple Parrots only totter one of theirs. Nobody knocks a target over on their second shot, but the Purple Parrots manage to topple one over with their third shot. The Green Monkeys knock over a second target with 40 seconds left, and the Purple Parrots knock their third target over with 33 seconds remaining. No one knocks over another target as cannonballs fly everywhere, but the Green Monkeys finally knock over a third target with seven seconds left. Time expires before anyone else can knock over any more targets.

“All right, that’s it!” says Kirk as he runs back onscreen. “That’s it—come on down here! There were cannonballs flying all over the place in that one, but it looks like…the Green Monkeys knocked over three of their targets, and the Purple Parrots knocked down two targets, so the Green Monkeys get a full Pendant. That gives them two, the Purple Parrots only have a half—the Green Monkeys are goin’ to the Temple!” Alex and Stephanie raise their fists in the air and cheer in excitement. “They’re excited—they should be! Purple Parrots, come over here; you guys did a great job, too, but you’re not goin’ home empty-handed. We have a great gift for you two, and here’s what it is!” They receive Skechers Airators shoes.

As the prize disappears off-screen, Kirk is standing between Alex and Stephanie with his hands on their shoulders. “Now we’ll see if the Green Monkeys can make it through Olmec’s Temple; retrieve that Scorched Cake Pan of Alfred the Great—and we’ll see that right after this!”

The camera flies to the left, zooms in on the Dark Forest and fills the screen with one of the patterns of the golden doors as the title appears onscreen, and we go to a commercial.
Title: Legends: Rebirth-The Scorched Cake Pan of Alfred the Great
Post by: The Bandit King on February 01, 2010, 06:47:36 PM
We return from the break and find Kirk standing in front of the Temple with the winning team.

“Welcome back to Legends: Rebirth,” he says. “The Green Monkeys have proven themselves worthy, and now they’ve earned the right to enter Olmec’s Temple. But first, Olmec’s gonna give them some information to help them retrieve the Scorched Cake Pan of Alfred the Great…”

Olmec begins to explain the layout as the camera gives us a first-person tour of the Temple:
“You could start…by running up the stairs to the Crypt! Grab the book from the skeletons, and pass into the Rope Labyrinth! Maneuver through the ropes, and climb into the Sculptor’s Studio. Smash the hollow sculptures to find the key that will lead you into the Chamber…of the Sacred Markers. Match the symbols on the right to those on the left, and pass into the Inventor’s Workshop. Spin the wheel to operate the machine, and open the door to the SHRIIIINE 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 Ancient Cave. Press yourself against the correct cave painting, and you’ll gain entry to the Owl’s Nest! Find the special white owl, and attach it to its proper nest, then…crawl through the Labyrinth, 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 Alex.

“Very well, Alex,” Olmec replies. “When Kirk gives the signal, you’ll race through the Gates into the Temple and make your way toward the Scorched Cake Pan. 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 Stephanie’s turn to enter and try her luck. If you can reach the Cake Pan, all the doors of the Temple will instantly unlock, and the Temple Guards will vanish. Return through the Gates with the Scorched Cake Pan of Alfred the Great 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 Cake Pan within three minutes, they’ll also receive a bicycle from Mongoose.
• And if they can bring the Cake Pan out of the Temple before three minutes expires, they’ll win a trip to Key West.

“All right, let’s see if they can win all that,” Kirk remarks. “Mouthpieces in—let’s set the clock for three minutes!” The clock slams down in the bottom corner of the screen, ready to go.

“Olmec, lower your gate, if you please.” Olmec moans gutturally as the Temple Gate is lowered, and the black lights under him go out.

“Are you ready, Alex?” Kirk asks.

“Mm-hmm,” Alex replies.

“On your mark,” Kirk begins, “get set, GO!”

“There he goes, up into the Temple with two Pendants in his arsenal!” a Kirk voice-over narrates as Alex dashes up the stairs and soon enters the Crypt. He pulls two books before opening the door down to the Ledges, but he pulls the last one for good measure, and opens the door to the Rope Labyrinth, which he heads through (2:52). “This guy’s fast—he runs a hundred yards!” the voice-over remarks. “But will he be fast enough to get to the Cake Pan?” Propping himself up with the ropes in the Labyrinth, Alex hits the actuator for the door to the Chamber of the Sacred Markers, but it won’t open (2:46). He climbs a bit higher, where he hits the actuator, opening the door to the Sculptor’s Studio (2:42). “That did it—now he’s headed into the Sculptor’s Studio, where he’ll have to break the statues!” the voice-over explains. Alex treks into the room, picks up one of the sculptures, and smashes it on the pedestal; however, he finds no key. He picks up another sculpture and does the same thing, finding the cylindrical key this time (2:31). He inserts it in the pedestal it was hidden on, but nothing happens. Knocking the third sculpture off its pedestal, he inserts the key into the hole there, and the door to the Chamber of the Sacred Markers flies open (2:27). Alex climbs the ladder down into the room, where he looks around for a few seconds before finding two tiles on the stage-left wall. He looks around some more and finds the third tile on the stage-right wall before going to the back of the room and placing all three tiles, opening the door to the Inventor’s Workshop and prompting him to continue (2:08).

“He’s right above the Scorched Cake Pan!” the Kirk voice-over states as Alex enters the Inventor’s Workshop. “He’s got Stephanie cheering him on, and no Temple Guards yet!” The camera shows Stephanie, clapping and cheering before cutting back to the Inventor’s Workshop, where Alex is seen turning the capstan. Finally, the door to the Shrine of the Silver Monkey opens (1:53). “That did it—now he’s in the Shrine of the Siiiiilver Monkey!” the voice-over narrates as Alex bolts into the room, where he immediately heads to the back and grabs all three pieces of the monkey statue. After bringing them to the front of the room, he places the base (1:33), the middle (1:28), and jams the head down, opening the doors to both the Room of the Secret Password and the Dark Forest (1:23). Alex chooses the shorter path, heading down the passage into the Dark Forest, emerging in the room a few seconds later. “That’s it—now he’s just one room away from the Cake Pan!” the voice-over exclaims. “If he can find the right key, he’s got it!” Alex reaches into the stage-left tree in search of a key, finding one and pulling it out (1:06). He inserts it into a small spot on the right side of the room, and the door to the Ancient Cave opens. Alex scrambles through the door and dashes to the front of the room, where he grabs the SCORCHED CAKE PAN (0:55).

“He’s got it!” a now-live Kirk shouts. “Now the doors are all open!” Alex darts across the room and enters the Owl’s Nest (0:50). The camera cuts to Stephanie, jumping up and down in excitement, screaming “Come on! You can do it!” Alex is shown darting through the bottom part of the Rope Labyrinth, and he enters the Ledges (0:46). Alex treks through the outcroppings in the room, and we see him make it back through the Temple Gate with 39 seconds left on the clock.

“He did it!” Kirk shouts as Stephanie tackles Alex with a hug. “He did it all! Stephanie didn’t even have to break a sweat! He raced through that Temple and did it all by himself! Unbelievable! And look here…” Kirk holds Alex’s hand up, Pendant still hanging from the wrist. “…no Temple Guards in sight! He didn’t even need this! They did it all—they got the cameras, the bikes, they’re goin’ to Key West!” Stephanie and Alex each cheer and whoop as they hold the Cake Pan high. “This was a great team; I’m really glad we got to meet ‘em. But all good things must end, they say—we’ll see you next time, though, and remember—it’s not just Legends, it’s Legends: Rebirth! Buh-bye!”

Alex holds the Cake Pan in the air as the credits begin to roll. We see a run-through of the Ancient Cave, the Owl’s Nest, and the Rope Labyrinth before the camera cuts back to Kirk and the winning team, talking and waving to the audience as the credits finish rolling.

The Scorched Cake Pan of Alfred the Great
Season 1, Layout 5
Artifact Location
: The Ancient Cave
Team: Green Monkeys (Stephanie Osborne & Alex Decker)
Pendants: 2
Result: Escaped! (0:39 left)

Un-freaking-believable. I thought I’d seen most everything there was to see on Legends, but that was before I saw Alex’s phenomenal performance in the Temple Games and the Temple Run.

In the pre-Temple Game interviews, Kirk said that Alex held his school’s record for the hundred-yard-dash, and he sure backed it up in the Temple Run. Not only was he fast, he was smart—after pulling two books in the Crypt, the door down to the Ledges opened, but Alex knew not to go down there until he pulled the third, which opened the Rope Labyrinth door. He wisely used the ropes in that room for leverage as he pressed the actuators, and completed the room’s objectives in blazing-fast fashion, probably breaking a few Legends records along the way. He grabbed the Scorched Cake Pan with 55 seconds left, and made it out just under twenty seconds later to record this awesome win.

Savor it, people—this is one of the few times that I give an episode of Legends: Rebirth a coveted:

10 out of 10 Rating

Notes and Trivia: This is the only Temple Run in Season 1 (as well as one of only two Runs in Rebirth’s tenure) in which no Temple Guards are encountered.

So where were the Temple Guards in this run? Educated guesses tell me that they were probably in the Ledges (you can barely make out movement there as Alex runs up the stairs into the Temple), the Room of the Secret Password, and the Dungeon.

The majority of this Temple Run is voiced over by Kirk. It cuts back to a live Kirk when Alex grabs the Scorched Cake Pan.
