Title: Did the Door open?
Post by: The Dark Enforcer on May 12, 2010, 09:16:42 PM
I was perusing Ed's Episode Summaries for like the 100th time over and I came across something that I did not agree with in one of Der Kommissar's  (DK's) summaries.

In DK's summary for the episode "The Thornwood Gavel of Judge Roy Bean", he said
Quote from: ""Der Kommissar""
One wrong turn spelled disaster for the team in this run. The frontrunner assembled the statue in the Shrine, and although the Bog door opened, he instead progressed to the Secret Password room, where he was removed from the temple.


Now I happen to disagree with this statement as, after reviewing the tape, I saw no evidence that the Shrine-Bog door opened at all. Now, The question is "Did the Door Open?" If anybody can provide screencaps of either a closed or open door to prove or refute my (TDE's) claim, then please post your debate here.

Oh, the same could be said of a ton of episodes.  I mean, "The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun" and "The Plumed Headdress of Cosa Rara" come to mind, along with "The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart." It seems like we never find out if that door opens from the Shrine unless a player goes through it, and that's honestly something that bothered me as well. :?

Huh, if Kelli had a few more seconds to climb up the ladder in the Bog, maybe we would've found out. :P

Usually IIRC, they show open doors during the end credits, but unfortunately, with all 3 minutes up, you can't see them.

EDIT: There's a video of the run on Youtube and I'm trying to see if it's true that the door opened.

And here's the evidence.




It may be blurry, but you can see the door is not opened.

Yeah, I think the front "wall" is in the way. ^^; I wish they had used the camera angle from "The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eug?nie" (when Jay completes the monkey and the camera man from the Room of the Ancient Warriors captures only the Dark Forest door opening) a lot more often, since it would've cleared things up.

Hey Guys and Gals, here are 2 pics that PROVE that the door didn't open.



(the door is the gray blotch under the clock)



Clearly the door isn't open here!

Any opinions?

Sorry, read that part wrongly, so posted the wrong screencap.

It's too blurry to prove anything.

This is the only one I could get from Veoh.




You can see a bit more of a grey blotch. So it has to be closed.

Ah, there we go. Yes, in this case, this pretty much proves that the door clearly did not open.
