Author's Note: This is one of the episodes in my independent project.  If you have any complaints, first thing to do is to go see the episode directory here:
Legends: The Rediscovery

Episode 46px]

The camera maneuvers through a thick rainforest to stop in front of an ancient temple.  A giant stone head next to the gate of the temple begins to speak:
"LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE! With your guide, Kirk Fogg! And here he is NOW!"

On this final word, Kirk appears from behind the Temple Guard door in the Dungeon and runs straight out into the foreground of the stage to greet the crowd. "Thank you! Thank you very much! Nice to see you! Nice to see you, Olmec! Welcome to Legends of the Hidden Temple.  The rooms are filled with lost treasures that are protected by mysterious Mayan Temple Guards.  Only Olmec knows the legend behind each of the treasures in his temple.  Which legend are we gonna hear about today?"

Olmec replies:
"The Legend of the Blue Royal Gown of Catherine of Braganza."

"Oh, the Royal Blue Gown of Catherine of Traganza!" Kirk says in response. "Well the legend is set, and one of these six teams will have the chance to retrieve the Royal Gown.  Will it be:
"Kenneth and Kristen of the Red Jaguars?" the camera pans to each team in order?
"Sean and Rachel of the Blue Barracudas,
"Ian and Shannon of the Green Monkeys,
"Thomas and Jasmine of the Orange Iguanas,
"Josh and Kat of the Purple Parrots,
"Or Paul and Erica of the Silver Snakes?"

"They'll have to pass some tough physical and mental tests," Kirk says, "and in the end, only one team will earn the right to enter Olmec's Temple.  But first, they must cross the Moat, and here's how they'll have to do it today:
"In front of each team there's three icebergs floating in the Moat.  When I say go, one player from each team will run across on the icebergs to get to the other side of the Moat.  Then his partner'll run across too, but if a player touches the icebergs with a part of a body other than their feet, they?ll have to start over."
"As soon as the second player steps onto the deck, it's his job to run over here and hit the gong." He slams down on the Red Jaguars' gong to demonstrate. "The first four teams to hit their gongs are gonna go on to the Steps of Knowledge.  Hey teams? are you ready?"
The players all cheer and shout in response.
"Olmec, are you ready?" asks Kirk.
"One hundred percent," Olmec replies.
"All right then," Kirk replies. "On your marks, get set, GO!"

?There they go!? Kirk announces as the boys on each team start to scramble across the icebergs.  The boy on the Purple Parrots gets a lead quickly, while the first players on teams like the Blue Barracudas and Green Monkeys have a lot more trouble.  Predictably, the boy on the Purple Parrots is the first to get across; the Red Jaguars, Orange Iguanas and Silver Snakes all get a player across soon after.  The girls are noticeably clumsier on average; the girl on the Orange Iguanas slips and falls off the first iceberg, and has to go back to start again.
?You gotta be careful on that ice or it?ll trip you up,? Kirk comments as the girls make their way across the Moat.  The girl on the Purple Parrots slows down on the third iceberg, allowing the second members on the Red Jaguars and the Silver Snakes to get across first.
?There?s our first two teams!? shouts Kirk as the Silver Snakes hit their gong. ?We need two more!? The girl on the Purple Parrots finally pulls herself together and gets across the Moat, then goes to hit her team?s gong. ?There?s three, we need one more?? another gong sound is heard? ?and that?s it!?
The camera now shows Kirk in front of the Red Jaguars? gong with the appropriate team. ?Red Jaguars blazed across that freezin? Moat!? Kirk comments. ?They?re going on to the Steps of Knowledge, along with the Orange Iguanas?? the camera briefly shows each qualifying team? ?and the Purple Parrots? and the Silver Snakes! The Blue Barracudas and the Green Monkeys gave it a great effort but came up a little short.  It was pretty close.  They?re not going away empty-handed, we got a great gift for them and here?s what it is.?
Dee reads the consolation prize:
"Look at the entertaining fun you?ll have when you strap on Moon Shoes.  Super excitement is yours when you bounce higher than ever! Don?t leave Earth without Moon Shoes, from Big Time Toys!"

Rediscovery EP: The Blue Royal Gown of Catherine of Braganza
« Reply #1 on: May 10, 2009, 03:58:45 PM »
The four teams are now at the top of the Steps of Knowledge accompanied by Kirk. "As the quest continues, it's now time for Olmec to tell us about the Legend of the Royal Blue Gown of Catherine of Braganza.  Pay attention, because your knowledge of the Legend can bring you a step closer to Olmec's Temple."
Olmec begins to tell the legend:
"One of the most unfortunate rulers was Catherine of Braganza.  Born as an Infanta, or princess of Portugal, when she was married to Charles II of England, the people wouldn?t have her.
" 'She bloody well better not pass some dining laws,' they?d say. 'No queen?s gonna bring in that high tea and that fork thing.'
"Catherine did introduce those dining customs, but because she was Portuguese she wouldn?t be crowned and couldn?t speak English very well.  Later on, she was accused of plotting to poison the king.
" 'N?o, n?o!' she cried to Charles. 'I could never do that to my husband!'
" 'Give me a reason I should believe you,' he asked.
" 'All the land I have to my name,' she said, 'and if that doesn?t convince you, this.'
"She gave him her dark blue royal gown, asking him to give it to his next queen.  Charles decided to keep Catherine and her claim to all the land Portugal had conquered, and sent the people who accused her to prison.  The Royal Gown ended up in the Temple.  You must find it and bring it here."

"Thanks Olmec," Kirk says after Olmec finishes telling the legend, "but where is the Gown?"
Olmec replies:
"The Royal Blue Gown of Catherine of Braganza can be found in the Abandoned Cave." The camera zooms in on the Gown draped over the boarded-up Pharaoh?s Secret Passage, then fades back to Kirk.

"All right. Teams," Kirk begins, walking down the steps, "you're now standing on the Steps of Knowledge, and in a minute, Olmec will ask you a question.  If you think you know the answer, I want you to stomp down on the 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 run out of time, I'll give the other teams a chance to answer.  The first two teams to make it to the bottom step will be one step closer to Olmec's Temple.  Olmec, we are now ready for your first question."

Olmec begins:
?Was Catherine of Braganza the queen of: Spain, England or Austria??
Kat hits the marking first: ?England!?
?Correct,? says Olmec.
?Nice job, Purple Parrots, step down,? comments Kirk, and the Purple Parrots move down to the second step. ?Olmec, next question.?
Olmec asks:
?According to our legend, which of these happened to Catherine: She inherited a lot of land, She was crowned queen or She was drowned in a river??
After a moment, Kenneth rings in: ?She was crowned queen.?
?That is incorrect,? answers Olmec.
Josh steps in: ?Crowned queen???
?Incorrect,? answers Olmec again. ?She inherited a lot of land.?
?All right, tough question, Olmec,? comments Kirk. ?Next question, please.?
Olmec now asks:
?Did Catherine marry: James I, Charles II or George III??
Kristen hits the marking first: ?Charles II???
?Correct,? replies Olmec.
?All right, take a step down, Red Jaguars!? says Kirk, and the Red Jaguars move down to the second step. ?Next question.?
Olmec asks:
?Which of these was a country controlled by Portugal: Argentina, Brazil or Indo???
Paul gongs in: ?Brazil???
?Correct,? answers Olmec.
?Orange Iguanas can still score,? Kirk remarks as the Silver Snakes also move down to the second level. ?Let?s keep going.?
Olmec then asks:
?Was Catherine of Braganza accused of plotting to: Drown the king, Overthrow the king or Poison the king??
Kristen rings in: ?Poison him???
?That is correct,? answers Olmec.
?Red Jaguars now just one step away from the Temple Games,? says Kirk, ?but we?re looking for two teams.  Olmec, next question.?
Olmec?s next question is:
?Catherine of Braganza was born as a Portuguese princess??
Erica stomps in: ?Um? She was a Portuguese princess???
?That is not one of the three choices,? replies Olmec. ?Was she called the: Dauphin, Infanta or Tsarina??
Kristen rings in again: ?Infanta!?
?That is correct!? shouts Olmec, and the Red Jaguars move down to the bottom level.
?All right! We got our first team going to the Temple Games; it?s the Red Jaguars!? Kirk announces as Kenneth and Kristen high-five excitedly. ?We still need one more team; will it be the Orange Iguanas, Purple Parrots or Silver Snakes? Olmec, continue.?
Olmec does so by asking:
?In our legend, when Charles decided Catherine wasn?t plotting against him, did he: Exile the accusers, Imprison the accusers or Torture the???
Thomas hits the marking first: ?He put them in jail???
?Correct,? answers Olmec.
?It?s all tied up on the second step!? remarks Kirk as the Orange Iguanas move down. ?Olmec, let?s keep going.?
Olmec asks:
?Catherine of Braganza?s inherited land??
Jasmine rings in: ?She inherited land.?
?That is not one of our three choices,? Olmec replies. ?The land she inherited would become her husband?s when she married.  Is this type of property called a: Dowry, Derby???
Josh cuts off Olmec this time: ?Dowry???
?That is correct,? responds Olmec.
?Teams, you might wanna hear the whole question out before you stomp down,? Kirk suggests as the Purple Parrots move down to the third level. ?Olmec, next question.?
Olmec continues:
?Which of these dining customs did Catherine of Braganza introduce to England: High tea, Sunday roast or Fish and chips??
Jasmine tries to answer again: ?Fish and chips???
?That is incorrect,? answers Olmec.
Kat gong in: ?High tea???
?That is correct!? shouts Olmec, and the Purple Parrots move down to the bottom level.
?All right, we got our two teams for the Temple Games!? announces Kirk, moving behind the excited qualifying players. ?It?s the Purple Parrots and the Red Jaguars! The Orange Iguanas and the Silver Snakes gave it a great effort playing.  We got a gift for them for playing, here?s what they get.? Thomas, Jasmine, Erica and Paul will each be receiving a backpack provided by Eastpak.
Kirk is standing on the Steps of Knowledge behind the Red Jaguars and the Purple Parrots. ?We?ll see these two teams playing for the right to enter Mr. Olmec?s Temple,? he says, ?right after this!? The camera runs along the outside wall of the Temple, stopping in front of the Switch Inferno and zooming in on one of the actuators before fading to commercial.

Rediscovery EP: The Blue Royal Gown of Catherine of Braganza
« Reply #2 on: May 10, 2009, 04:00:51 PM »
Kirk is now standing between the Red Jaguars and the Purple Parrots in front of the Mine Shaft. ?Welcome back to Legends!? he says. ?Now, the glory goes to the fastest and the strongest, so let?s get to know our team players.? He turns to the camera-left talk to the girl on the Red Jaguars, a cute, slightly short blond with hazel eyes. ?On the Red Jaguars, we have Kristen.  How old are you??
?Twelve,? replies Kristen.
?Now I understand you?re a swimmer but you also like to sing,? Kirk reads off the index card. ?What do you like to sing??
?Well,? answers Kristen, ?I like a lot of music? I sing along to Carrie Underwood, Ace of Base, No Doubt? A bunch of stuff.? She smiles.
?All right, very nice,? Kirk says as he goes to interview the boy on the far right of the screen, an average-sized Asian kid with short hair. ?And Kenneth, how old are you??
?Thirteen,? he replies.
?And I understand you like to paint,? Kirk reads. ?Tell me about that.?
?Well,? explains Kenneth, ?I got into painting when I was little, my mom paints too? I started with watercolors, but now I paint acrylics even though I still love watercolors.?
?And what?s your favorite thing to paint?? asks Kirk.
?Probably? landscapes on the ocean,? replies Kenneth.
?This is an artistic team,? Kirk says. ?Let?s hear it for the Red Jaguars!? The audience applauds, and Kirk turns toward the right side of the screen to talk to the girl on the Purple Parrots, who has brown hair and hazel eyes. ?And on the Purple Parrots, we have Kat.  How old are you??
?Twelve,? she replies.
?And I understand you like to play softball, but you also like to read,? Kirk says. ?Favorite books??
?I?m really into vampires,? Kat explains. ?I read Dracula once, but now I?m caught up in Twilight.?
?Ah, very nice,? Kirk says, moving to talk to the taller boy on the far right of the screen, who has dark brown hair and brown eyes. ?And Josh, how old are you??
?Fourteen,? he answers.
?And you play bass in a band,? Kirk says. ?Tell me about that.?
?Well,? begins Josh, ?It?s called Space Cannon, we?re kind of? techno-rock-ish? My friend Pat, he?s on drums, his older cousin he?s a DJ, he?s gives that techno edge.?
?Well, love to hear you guys play some time.  Maybe after the show.  Let?s hear it for the Purple Parrots!? Josh and Kat clap along with the audience.

?All right! Now, why don?t you guys go get ready for the first Temple Game, girls go get ready for the second Temple Game,? Kirk says, and the players walk offscreen in different directions. ?Now, in the Temple Games, each team will be competing for?" he opens a pouch and pulls out a small gold medallion to show to the camera? "these Pendants of Life.  The winning team will need those Pendants to protect themselves from the dreaded Temple Guards as they make their way through the Temple.  There are three Temple Games.  Olmec, tell us about Temple Game #1.?

Olmec begins:
?Catherine of Braganza was born in Portugal, but she became queen of England, which she could only travel to by water.  In this game, your voyage will be slightly shorter.  When Kirk gives the signal, sail to the island and, without touching the water, mount your flag on the island.  Then, turn and pull yourself back to the dock.
?The first player to mount their flag and return with both feet on the dock? or the player that?s furthest along after 30 seconds? wins.?
?Time to claim a country,? Kirk says, standing in the middle of the dock. ?Let?s put 30 seconds on the clock.? A countdown clock appears in the bottom-right corner of the screen. ?On your mark, get set, GO! Bon voyage!?
Both Josh and Kenneth sail out from the dock and try to stay as straight as possible; Josh has an overall easier job with this than does Kenneth, who almost rams into Josh.  Regardless, the two players each make it down to the islands with 20 seconds left, plant the flags and start to turn around.
?It?s pretty neck-and-neck!? Kirk announces as the teams start to head back.  Josh takes a little longer turning around, so Kenneth slips a little bit ahead; however, both teams miss the dock, with Kenneth smashing into the middle of it.  Neither player technically reaches the dock before a pattern of ceiling spotlights flash, indicating time is up.
?Okay, time?s up!? Kirk announces. ?Well, the two were the same distance from the dock when time ended.  That means it?s a tie and both teams get the half Pendant of Life!? The audience applauds. ?The next game is also worth a half Pendant.  Olmec, tell us about Temple Game #2.?

Olmec continues:
?Catherine of Braganza was denied the English crown when she became queen, but in this game, you must grab enough crowns for a royal family.  When Kirk gives the signal, crawl to the first cube, grab the first crown, then crawl back with it and place it in your bin.  Then, go back to get the next crown.  Along the way you must try to avoid the swinging obstacles.  If you?re hit, you?ll have to go back and start again.?
?The first player to retrieve all four crowns? or the player that?s retrieved the most crowns in 60 seconds? wins.?
The camera fades to Kirk. ?Put 60 seconds on the clock,? he says, and the clock appears onscreen. ?And let?s get the sandbags back in position and start swinging them.? The spotters do just that. ?On your marks, get set, GO!?
Kat and Kristen both take off at a medium pace, grabbing their first crowns and also making it back with them at about the same time.  But, when they go out for the second crown, Kat gets hit by a sandbag right after she reaches the crown, with :41 left.
?This game?s tough,? Kirk says as Kristen grabs the second crown and doubles back. ?It takes good timing and concentration.? With 26 seconds left, Kristen drops in the second crown as Kat heads out to the first cube for the fourth time.  However, Kristen is hit early on the next time, whereas Kat finally makes it back with the second crown.  Both get hit a few more times by the swinging obstacles before a pattern of ceiling spotlights flash to indicate that the game is over.
?Okay, that?s it!? Kirk announces, running over to count the scores. ?Looks like Purple Parrots got two spears in the bucket, but Red Jaguars also got two crowns in the bucket! It?s a tie? they both get another half Pendant of Life!? The audience applauds for a second. ?It?s all tied up, one Pendant apiece.  The next game is worth the full Pendant.  Olmec, tell us about Temple Game #3.?

Olmec narrates:
?Catherine of Braganza was accused of plotting to poison her husband, but luckily for her, she wasn?t imprisoned.  In this game, you and your partner must escape a prison of your own.  When Kirk gives the signal, climb along the wall and maneuver the chain along the slot until you reach the passage where you can escape.
?The first team to set themselves free? or the one that?s further along after 60 seconds? wins!?
The camera shows Kirk standing in front of the two giant boards and facing the camera. ?This is for the Temple,? he reminds everyone. ?Let?s put 60 seconds on the clock.? The clock appears onscreen. ?On your mark, get set, GO!?
Both teams are evenly matched at the beginning; they both climb along at the same pace and make it up the first section of the track and around the corner in nine seconds, but the Red Jaguars head across the top a bit more quickly.
?This is a game that takes a lot of coordination,? comments Kirk, ?and it looks like the Red Jaguars have it.? The Red Jaguars are starting through the first metal loop with :46 remaining, while the Purple Parrots get stopped up a little on the top leg of the path.  They reach the first loop with :41 left, just as the Red Jaguars are moving on.
However, after that point, the Purple Parrots pick up speed and cut ahead quite a bit.  They make it through the second metal loop with 24 seconds left, while the Red Jaguars are still trying to get through.  The Red Jaguars, getting through their second loop with 20 seconds left, make a nice effort to stage a comeback yet again, and are helped by the Purple Parrots getting caught up on one of the later turns.
?Looks close, it?s down to the wire!? Kirk comments as both teams are making their way through the final loop to try and escape.  The Red Jaguars, however, make it out a split second before the Purple Parrots, with :11 remaining.
?And that?s it!? Kirk announces; the two teams both run over and meet Kirk, though the Red Jaguars are noticeably more excited. ?Red Jaguars made it in the nick of time! They get the full Pendant, giving themselves two, the Purple Parrots had one Pendant.  Red Jaguars going to the Temple!? The audience applauds, and the Red Jaguars and Purple Parrots shake hands, high-five and so on. ?Purple Parrots gave it a gallant effort, it was really close.  Here?s what we?ve got for them.? Josh and Kat will each be receiving a $100 U.S. Savings Bond provided by Skechers.
The camera switches back to Kirk standing with the Red Jaguars in front of the equipment for the third Temple Game. ?We?ll see if these two can make it through Olmec?s Temple and retrieve that Royal Blue Gown of Catherine Bagrantza,? he says, ?right after this!? The camera runs across the Temple Games arena and zooms in on the Blue Royal Gown in the Abandoned Cave before fading to commercial.

Rediscovery EP: The Blue Royal Gown of Catherine of Braganza
« Reply #3 on: May 10, 2009, 04:02:04 PM »
Kirk stands in front of the Temple's stairs between the Red Jaguars. "Welcome back to Legends," he says to the camera before turning to talk to the Red Jaguars, Kenneth and Kristen. "You two have proven yourselves worthy and earned the right to enter the Temple.  But first, Olmec?s gonna give you some information to help you retrieve the Blue Royal Gown of Catherine of Barransa."
Olmec begins to give the rundown:
?You could start by climbing through the Crevasse and climbing down into the Mine Shaft.  Throw enough rocks into the bucket to lift the slab, then race into the Crystal Cave.  Pull down the correct icicle, and you could choose to go up into the Dragon?s Lair, or into the Junction of the Secret Shafts.  If you escape, you might have a chance to enter the Switch Inferno.  Hit the right actuator to go upstairs, or plow through the wall and into the Abandoned Cave, where you can grab the Blue Royal Gown of Catherine of Braganza.
?Climb up the ladder into the Planetarium, and spin the correct sphere to open the door to the SHRIIIIINE? of the Silver Monkey.  Assemble the statue, and you may be headed for the Knights? Barracks.  Place the sword in the correct sheath, but be careful? one of the suits of armor could be possessed by the spirit of a Temple Guard! If they grab you, you'll have to give up a Pendant of Life! Next, race up to the Laser Light Room, find the right combination to unleash the power of the laser, and run across the Bridge.  Then, pass through the Room of Temple Gongs, race down the stairs and back through the Temple Gate.  The choices are yours and yours alone.? Olmec pauses for a second here. "You won 2 Pendants in the Temple Games.  Who's going first??
"I am," says Kristen.
"Very well, Kristen," replies Olmec as Kirk hands out the Pendants of Life. "When Kirk gives the signal, you'll race through the gates into the Temple and make your way towards the Blue Royal Gown.  Hidden inside the Temple are three ventilation shafts that let out in the Junction of the Secret Shafts, as well as 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 then it'll be Kenneth's turn to enter and try his luck.  If you can reach the Blue Royal Gown, all the doors of the Temple will instantly unlock, and the Temple Guards will vanish.  Return through the gates with the Blue Royal Gown of Catherine of Braganza in three minutes, and you will both be handsomely rewarded? and here's how!"
? First, they?re both going to get a Bollinger Ultra-Bounce trampoline.
? If they can grab the Blue Royal Gown within three minutes, they?re each going to receive camping gear provided by Outdoor Products.
? And if they can get the Gown out of the Temple before three minutes is up, they?ll both be going to Krystal Cancun! The resort for beach lovers, with excursions to Mayan ruins.  It?s rich in history and rich in pleasure.  Krystal Cancun, for a prize package totaling $12,796!

"All right, let?s get ?em to Cancun!" Kirk says before turning to Kenneth. "Let?s get Kenneth out in front.  Mouthpieces in?" he looks at Kristen? "both of you.  You never know when you?re gonna go in.  Let?s lower the gate, Olmec!"
Olmec hums as he lowers the gate.
"Set the clock for three minutes.  On your mark Kenneth, get set, GO!"

?There he goes! Up into the Temple!? declares Kirk as Kenneth runs up the stairs.  He goes up into the Room of Temple Gongs, only to meet a?
?TEMPLE GUARD! Right off the bat!? Kirk comments. ?Staggered him for a second?? Kenneth hands over his Pendant of Life with a little difficulty, then goes to the foreground of the room to complete the room objective.  He starts with the leftmost gong and moves stage-right.  In order the gongs light up red? opening the door to the Crevasse? silvery-white, orange, green, purple and blue.  Kenneth walks over to the door leading out to the Bridge, but it?s not open. ?That?s not gonna let him in,? explains Kirk; Kenneth climbs down into the Crevasse with 2:22 remaining.
?He?s gotta keep moving forward!? Kirk says as Kenneth crawls through the Crevasse. ?He?s gotta go through into the Rock Slab Room!? Kenneth uses the upper crawl tube and enters the Mine Shaft with 2:09 left.  He picks up the rocks and places them in the bucket at a decent pace; it takes six to lift the rock slab all the way this time around. ?There, he?s got a path to go on.? Kenneth hits the actuator for the Crystal Cave door with 1:52 on the clock, and slides through into the next room.  Before he can get started on the objective, however, out from the corner of the room jumps the second TEMPLE GUARD!
?Oh, Temple Guard gets him! Go Kristen!? Kirk announces at 1:47, urging Kristen to get going.  She goes up into the Room of Temple Gongs, climbs down into the Crevasse, crawls through into the Mine Shaft and slides into the Crystal Cave with 1:23 remaining.  She pulls down the stalactites with two hands; the first one opens the door to the Junction of the Secret Shafts, and Kristen leaves the Crystal Cave with 1:14 to go.
?She?s doing great, just two rooms away!? says Kirk as Kristen walks through the Junction of the Secret Shafts.  She hits an actuator and leaves through the upper tunnel, but in the Switch Inferno she meets the third TEMPLE GUARD!
?Woah! Temple Guard!? Kirk remarks as Kristen backs up and screams. ?Scared her, scared me! Give him the Pendant!? Kristen pulls herself together and passes over her Pendant with 1:05 on the clock; the Temple Guard disappears behind the gold door he emerged from as Kristen reaches for the first actuator. ?You can just bust through the wall into the Dungeon!? Kirk shouts. ?You?re just one room away! Bust through the wall!? Soon enough, Kristen stops trying the actuators, and just jogs through the breakaway rock wall into the Abandoned Cave with 57 seconds left.  She takes a little while wading through the fallen rocks, but once she gets across the room she grabs the BLUE ROYAL GOWN!
?She?s got it!? Kirk announces. ?All the doors are open! Fifty seconds left!? Kristen tries to roll up the Gown under her arm, turns around and starts heading back; once she?s back at the entrance to the Abandoned Cave, she picks up the pace with 43 seconds, and heads all the way to the Mine Shaft with 27 seconds left.
?C?mon Kristen!? Kenneth shouts. ?You can do it!?
Thanks to the nature of the artifact, Kristen manages to climb up using the handholds on the Mine Shaft wall rather than the ladder and enters the Crevasse with 18 seconds remaining.  She climbs up the ladder into the Room of Temple Gongs with 11 seconds left, and makes it down the stairs and through the gate with 0:05 left!
?They got it!? Kirk announces as Kristen reappears through the gate; she jumps over to Kenneth and the two form an excited, hopping and turning circle. ?They got the Robe! They got it all? The trampolines, the camping gear? They?re going to Cancun!? Kenneth and Kristen stop spinning around, and an out-of-breath Kristen steps away to meet with Kirk. ?I don?t wanna leave this team, but we gotta go.  Let?s check us out next time for another adventure of a great Legend of the Hidden Temple! See ya!? The three wave at the camera as the closing lines are said.  The camera focuses on the open gold doors in the Switch Inferno and the Bridge, and shows a wide view of the entire Temple Games arena as the credits roll.

Temple Run Summary
Episode 46px]

Season: 2
Layout: 3 (7 overall)
Result: Made it!
Time Remaining: 0:05
Team: Red Jaguars
Pendants Won: 2
Location of Artifact: The Abandoned Cave




Neither Kenneth nor Kristen was that fast, but the two players did win.  There's really not much to say except that the path was very simple, surprising even the players? they were expecting it to not work, evident by their choice of the Room of Temple Gongs as a starting point.

On her way out with the Gown, Kristen used the indents in the walls of the Mine Shaft rather than the ladder to climb into the Crevasse; the nature of the artifact allowed her to do that.  After she got to the Gown with 50 seconds on the clock, she precisely followed her footsteps back out of the Temple to log the win with five seconds left.

Trivia and Records:
This is the only time an artifact is hidden in the Abandoned Cave, and one of only three episodes in The Rediscovery where the direct path to the artifact works.  The Temple Games feature the only time a tie is called on a distance-related game, but it didn't change the outcome in the end because the Red Jaguars were technically ahead in that game.  Kenneth and Kristen are also the first team in The Rediscovery's run to come in first in the Moat and Steps, win two Pendants in the Temple Games and win in the Temple.

ZOMG the direct path worked!

Also, it sounds like Kristen must've watch the temple run for "Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress" before her episode, since David did pretty much the same thing on his way out with the headdress.

This is actually the second episode I posted since I returned to the forum lol.  First one since I came back was "Henrique Galv?o and the Santa Maria."

Still, thank you. :)
