The Heart Room / Re: Half-Pendant Locations
« on: September 03, 2012, 12:32:30 AM »
I have two separate ideas for the location of the half pendant in "The Lost Logbooks of Magellan". My first hypothesis uses photo evidence, courtesy the videos from ChargerTheWolf on youtube.com:











If you consider the size, color, and shape of the photographic evidence from earlier in this thread for the half pendant being in the dungeon for Henry VIII’s Great Seal, they appear similar. In addition, they were two of the four episodes of layout S1L4, meaning they were shot in the same day. So the producers may have thought to put the half pendant on the floor both times [Corollary: If this is the case, then that means that the half pendants for Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart and Moccasins of Geronimo (the two other episodes of the day, each also teams winning 1.5 pendants) very well could have been on the floor as well].

My second hypothesis is that the half pendant is located in the treasure chest (later used for Anne Bonny) in the Shrine of the Silver Monkey. That would put the pendant one room away from the final temple guard (a very common scenario in Season 1), and it was not in the base of the shrine, since she had no interference assembling the monkey. Did anybody have those same thoughts? Do either seem plausible?

In "The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen", the camera-right tree held the temple spirit, taking TJ out of the temple. However, when Randy got to the room, there wasn't a key in either tree, forcing her to burst through the (breakable) wall to the Quicksand Bog. So a temple spirit in the camera-right tree does not mandate that the wall is locked.

Random notes I have about "The Metal Beard":
1.) Between completing objectives and exiting the temple, the team entered every room (pretty impressive).
2.) I'm positive the third guard was located in the Ledges, as the door from the Crypt to the Ledges opened, but wasn't a mandatory route (the Crypt opened directly to the Pit of the Pendulum). Plus the only door that opened from the Pit was to the Tomb of the Headless Kings.

On a separate note regarding half pendants, I have a suggestion for the whereabouts of the one for Snake Bracelet of Cleopatra. I believe it is on the actuator from the Room of the Fallen Columns to the Treasure Room.

Evidence (or lack thereof): It is not out-rightly visible during the temple overview; it cannot be seen on the actuator from the Wheel Room to the Throne Room, it is not on the throne or its ladder, nor is it on either actuator from the Holes of Python to the Tomb of Ancient Kings. It is also clearly not visible on the actuator from the Troubled Bridge to the Observatory. Also, notice that there is no hesitation in hitting the actuator from the Treasure Room to the Shrine of the Silver Monkey, as there was in The Trojan Horseshoe. The treasure box in the back of the Shrine (that was used for The Treasure of Anne Bonny) was not there in the episode, so it could not have been placed there, nor was the half pendant in the base of the shrine because there wasn't any interference with assembling the monkey.

On the contrary, we cannot physically see the actuator in the Room of the Fallen Columns at any point, nor does the second runner look directly at that actuator during her portion of the run (a column appears to have fallen directly on top of the actuator and prevented it from being in her view). It is quite possible that the frontrunner did not signal back to his partner that the half pendant was there when he hit the actuator (we have, after all, seen that happen a number of times).

This location of the half pendant makes sense if you consider where the third temple guard most likely was... either the Cave of Sighs, the Throne Room, or a dead end Holes of Python (like in so many other swamp/spider's lair episodes). If the team had chosen to enter via the lower route, it is inevitable that the frontrunner would have run into that other temple guard first, then would have been forced up from the Throne Room to the Room of the Fallen Columns. Then he would have been taken out of temple by the Heart Room temple guard. The second runner would have been forced to follow that path, and would've had to have ended up going from the Fallen Columns to the Golden Idols, where the third guard was located. Since she would have been the one hitting that actuator, she (hopefully) would have seen the half pendant and grabbed it before entering the Treasure Room. Plus, that would have put the pendant in the room directly prior to the third guard, which is a running trend seen in Season 1.

I hope that this is a convincing hypothesis regarding why the half pendant for the Snake Bracelet episode would have been in the Room of the Fallen Columns.

I hope this verifies the undoubted existence of the half pendants for those three episodes.  (Screenshots courtesy youtube.com videos posted by ChargerTheWolf)

I double checked the Hans Holbein episode,and I can confirm that there is most definitely a panel there, but I don't see the red lettering... I must have been watching a video with higher quality this time around...

I tried watching Andrea's run, and its hard to tell also if the sign was there or not because the camera does not get a good shot of it like it did in Zac's run. And that episode was the same day as Zac. I guess the last episode I should check is "The Thornwood Gavel of Judge Roy Bean" being its the only other episode of that production day.

And as for the other prop, I guess maybe it was in the Tomb of the Headless Kings? Season three had a lot props laying all over the temple that you may never notice.

It looks like one of the Golden Idols is sitting in the Room of the Secret Password near the Shrine door.

And one of the Gargoyle Heads can be seen at the top of the Pit of the Pendulum (falcon one) while the Panther one can be seen lying around the temple set.

Season three had a lot of great scenery.

Sorry this post is so delayed from the original post in which this was brought up, but I noticed something regarding the "Danger Sign" from early in this post.  I watched the "Thornwood Gavel" episode, and the DANGER sign is, in fact, there. You need to have a very keen eye because the shot is very brief and you can't exactly make out the lettering (but there is no way that the object could be anything except that sign)... During the temple run, if you pause the episode right as Michael gets taken out of the temple in the Room of the Secret Password (pause when there is 1:22 left on the temple run clock), the camera does a panoramic of the whole room, and the sign is in the shot on the upper left-hand corner of the screen.

Good eye, I can see it, too. It makes me wonder if it was only there for that filming day, or if it was there the entire season.

It's there during Hans Holbein, too (Episode 100- most definitely a different filming day). Look for the danger sign in the upper left hand corner when there is 0:30 left on the temple run timer. So I guess this means that it was there for the whole season!

The main reason I don't think it's the half pendant is because it just looks a little smaller than what the half pendant would look like.

If someone can get a picture that shows the object with more depth, than I might be persuaded to change my mind.

Hi, this is my first time attempting to attach screenshots on this site. I have convincing screenshots on my computer of the half pendant being on the door from the Jester's Court to the Dark Forest for the Snowcone, Bent Shaving Pan, and Marble Armrest episodes. The file is currently too large to attach, but if you can explain to me how to attach it, I will get the screenshots posted.

This is my first time taking part in this poll, so I hope nobody undergoes heart failure when they see an extra vote "mysteriously" added to the tally.  :)
