Rediscovery EP: The Golden Grapes of Dionysus
« on: June 11, 2009, 05:45:04 PM »
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 50px]

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 Golden Grapes of Dionysus."

"Oh, the Golden Grapes of Di?nysus!" Kirk says in response. "Well, the adventure is set, and one of these six teams will have the chance to retrieve the Golden Grapes.  Will it be:
"The Red Jaguars?" the camera pans to each team in order?
"The Blue Barracudas,
"The Green Monkeys,
"The Orange Iguanas,
"The Purple Parrots,
"Or the Silver Snakes?"

"They'll have to pass many physical and mental tests," Kirk says, "and in the end, one team will earn the right to enter Olmec's Temple.  But first, they?ll have to cross the Moat, and here's how they'll have to do it today??
"I?ve never seen this before, the Moat?s half ice and half water! So when I say go, one player from each team will walk across the ice, climb over the ice wall and then swim through the water until they reach the other side of the Moat.  Then their partner will climb the wall and swim the rest of the way."
"When the second player climbs out onto the deck, it's his job to run over and hit the gong." He slams down on the Red Jaguars' gong to demonstrate. "The first four teams to hit their gongs will be going on to the next round.  Are you ready, teams?"
The players all cheer and shout in response.
"Are you ready, Olmec?" asks Kirk.
"Let?s get going," Olmec replies.
"All right then," Kirk says in response. "Teams? on your mark, get set, GO!"

?There they go!? Kirk announces as the girls on each team start things off by trudging through the mix of packing peanuts, green balls from the Great Chasm and foam blocks from the Quicksand Bog which together were apparently supposed to represent ice.  Most of the teams move at about the same pace, but the Green Monkeys are noticeably slower than the rest.  The first players on the Red Jaguars, Blue Barracudas and Purple Parrots get over the ice wall and start swimming to the other side of the Moat.  The Blue Barracudas? girl gets across first, followed by the first players on the Red Jaguars and Purple Parrots.  As the boys on those teams start to walk across the ?ice,? the girls on the Orange Iguanas and the Silver Snakes make it to the other side of the Moat.
?This looks like a close match!? says Kirk, perhaps ignoring that the girl on the Green Monkeys had a very hard time getting over the ice wall. ?We?re looking for four teams!? The boy on the Purple Parrots gets over the wall, the second players on the Red Jaguars and Blue Barracudas following suit a bit later.  After some more time, the boy on the Purple Parrots swims across the moat and goes to ring his team?s gong.
?There?s our first team for the Temple Games! The Purple Parrots!? Kirk announces. ?Red Jaguars made it!? he adds as the boy on the Red Jaguars climbs out of the water, followed by the Blue Barracudas not too long after. ?Still need one more team?? The boys on the Orange Iguanas and the Silver Snakes race across the rest of the Moat; the boy on the Green Monkeys has done a nice job of making up for lost time, and is only a little bit behind the other two players.  However, it?s too little, too late as a fourth gong is heard.
?And that?s it!? shouts Kirk, and the camera shifts to him celebrating with excited the Red Jaguars around their gong. ?The Red Jaguars did a great job scrambling across the Moat.  They?re going on to the Steps of Knowledge, along with the Blue Barracudas?? the camera briefly shows each qualifying team, holding for applause in the middle? ?and the Purple Parrots? and the Silver Snakes! The Green Monkeys and the Orange Iguanas gave it a great effort too.  We got a great gift for them for playing and here?s what it is.? The players on the Green Monkeys and Orange Iguanas will each be receiving a copy of the Teen Titans Game Boy Advance game.

Rediscovery EP: The Golden Grapes of Dionysus

The four teams are now at the top of the Steps of Knowledge accompanied by Kirk. "The quest continues, and now it?s time for Olmec to tell us about the Golden Grapes of Diana and Isis.  Pay attention, teams, because your knowledge of the Legend can bring you a step closer to Olmec's Temple."
Olmec begins to tell the legend:
"Long ago, a satyr named Silenus wandered into the court of a king of Phrygia.  The king?s name was Midas.  Midas found Silenus asleep in the rose garden and treated him as an honored guest for ten days and ten nights; Silenus got a place to stay and Midas and his court got some entertainment.
"On the eleventh day King Midas brought Silenus to Dionysus, the Greek god of wine who had been raised by the satyr.  Dionysus was grateful and promised to grant Midas one wish.
" 'If I could have anything I touched turn to gold,' he said, 'that would make me happy.'
"Dionysus granted the wish, and King Midas was pleased when he turned a rock and a tree to solid gold.  However, he soon learned to be careful what he wishes for? because he certainly got it.  When he sat to eat a most kingly feast, every last scrap of food and drop of wine turned to gold.  The same happened to his daughter when she ran to hug him!
" 'Dionysus, please!' he prayed. 'I made a stupid wish! Take it back!'
" 'Bathe in the Pactolus River and the wish will be revoked,' said Dionysus, and Midas went to do so right away.
"However, as soon as Midas touched the waters, they also turned to gold! The wish didn?t stop, so King Midas fled to the countryside and stayed with the satyrs.  But, legend has it that Dionysus took the goldified grapes from Midas?s feast and used them as his symbol for a long time.  Your quest is to find the Golden Grapes of Dionysus and bring them back here."

"Thanks Olmec," Kirk says after Olmec finishes telling the legend, "but where are the Grapes?"
Olmec replies:
"The Golden Grapes of Dionysus can be found in the SHRIIIINE of the Silver Monkey." The camera zooms in on a large gold-coated cluster of grapes situated on the shelf next to the middle part of the monkey statue, 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 that ancient marking in front of you.  If you're right, you'll 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 level will be one step closer to Olmec's Temple.  Olmec, we?re ready for your first question."

Olmec begins:
?Which of these Greek gods granted King Midas his wish???
The girl on the Purple Parrots stomps down first: ?Dionysus!?
?Correct,? answers Olmec.
?Nice job, Purple Parrots, step down,? says Kirk, and the Purple Parrots move down to the second step. ?Olmec, next question.?
Olmec asks:
?Was Dionysus the god of: Wine, Horses or Marriage??
The girl on the Blue Barracudas buzzes in: ?Wine.?
?Correct,? says Olmec in response.
?Blue Barracudas on the board, step down!? remarks Kirk, and the Blue Barracudas join the Purple Parrots on the second level. ?Next question, Olmec.?
Olmec now asks:
?King Midas found and returned to Dionysus? his foster father, Silenus.  Was Silenus a: Satyr, Centaur or Minotaur??
After a moment, the girl on the Red Jaguars stomps down and guesses: ?Satyr???
?Correct,? Olmec replies.
?Red Jaguars, step down,? says Kirk, and the Red Jaguars also move down to the second step. ?Silver Snakes can get into this.  Next question, Olmec.?
Olmec asks:
?Did Midas wish for???
The boy on the Red Jaguars cuts Olmec off this time: ?He wished that everything he touched turned to gold.?
?That is correct,? answers Olmec.
?Red Jaguars now just one step from the Temple Games,? Kirk says as the Red Jaguars move down to the penultimate level, ?but we?re looking for two teams.  Olmec, continue.?
Olmec does so by asking:
?According to the legend, which of these did King Midas turn to gold: His palace, His queen or His feast??
The girl on the Purple Parrots rings in: ?His feast???
?That is correct,? replies Olmec.
?Purple Parrots now just one step away from the Temple Games,? Kirk comments as the Purple Parrots join the Red Jaguars on the second-to-last level. ?Blue Barracudas and Silver Snakes can still catch up.  Next question.?
Olmec then asks:
?To reverse the effects of the wish, did Dionysus tell King Midas to: Take Silenus back, Climb Moun???
The boy on the Blue Barracudas interrupts Olmec: ?He had to take? Silenus back???
?Incorrect,? answers Olmec. ?The other two choices are: Climb Mount Olympus or Bathe in the Pactolus River.?
The boy on the Silver Snakes gongs in: ?Take a bath in the river? Pac?tolus River.?
?Correct,? answers Olmec.
?Silver Snakes on the board, this is anybody?s game,? Kirk comments as the Silver Snakes move down to the second step. ?Olmec, next question.?
Olmec asks:
?In our legend, did Midas find Silenus sleeping in his: Fountain, Rose garden or Throne???
The girl on the Red Jaguars cuts Olmec off this time: ?The rose garden???
?That is correct!? declares Olmec, and the Red Jaguars jump down onto the bottom step before they start hopping up and down with their hands interlocked.
?There, we got our first team moving on to the Temple Games!? Kirk announces as the Red Jaguars celebrate. ?We still got room for one more, who?s it gonna be? Let?s keep going, Olmec.?
Olmec continues:
?Did Silenus stay in Midas?s palace for: Seven days, Ten days or Forty???
The girl on the Silver Snakes hits the marking first: ?Ten days???
?That is correct,? replies Olmec.
?Silver Snakes one step to go,? Kirk explains as the Silver Snakes move down to the second-to-last level, ?but the Blue Barracudas can catch up.  Next question.?
Olmec now asks:
?According to our legend, after Midas left to the countryside, did Dionysus take???
The boy from the Silver Snakes rings in: ?He went to the feast turned to gold, and he took the grapes, and now they?re in the Temple.?
?That is completely correct!? shouts Olmec, and the Silver Snakes hop down alongside the Red Jaguars.
?We got our two teams!? Kirk declares, slipping in behind the two qualifying teams on the bottommost level of the Steps of Knowledge. ?They?re the Red Jaguars and the Silver Snakes! Gimme some five!? He high-fives the boys on the Red Jaguars and Silver Snakes in that order. ?Blue Barracudas, Purple Parrots, you?re not gonna go away empty-handed, we got a great gift for you and here?s what it is.? The Blue Barracudas and Purple Parrots will each be receiving copies of the Ape Escape 3 PlayStation 2 game.
The camera cuts back to Kirk standing between the Red Jaguars and Silver Snakes at the bottom of the Steps of Knowledge. ?We?ll see these two fired-up teams playing for the right to enter Olmec?s Temple,? he says, ?right after this!? The camera zooms out, then segues to a pan across the half-frozen Moat before fading to commercial.

Kirk is standing between the two teams and in front of the Mine Shaft. ?Welcome back to Legends,? he says. ?Now of course the glory goes to the fastest and the strongest, so let?s talk to our team players.? He turns to interview the platinum-blond boy on his stage-left. ?On the Silver Snakes, we have Bryan.  How old are you??
?Thirteen,? he answers.
?And I understand you?ve been to 45 out of 50 states,? says Kirk, reading off an index card containing the player profiles. ?Where haven?t you been??
Bryan thinks for a second. ?I haven?t been to? Alaska, Hawaii? Montana? North Dakota or South Dakota,? he replies. ?Got family in the Midwest, New England and out in Seattle, went on vacation in California for a couple weeks a few summers back.?
?Ah, cool,? Kirk says, going to interview the brown-haired girl stage-left of Bryan. ?And also on the Silver Snakes, we have Anna.  How old are you??
?Fourteen,? answers Anna.
?And I understand you do tae kwon do,? Kirk says. ?Tell me about that.?
?Well? I started last year, but I?m going up through the ranks fast,? Anna answers, ?I?m already only four ranks away from first-degree black belt.?
?I think we got a good team here, we?ll see,? says Kirk. ?Let?s hear it for the Silver Snakes!? Bryan and Anna wave and applaud with the audience as Kirk turns to interview the brown-haired boy with glasses on the Red Jaguars. ?And on the Red Jaguars we have Taylor? Taylor Kowalczyk.  How old are you??
?Thirteen,? he replies.
?And you play soccer for your school, but you?re also into Thai culture,? Kirk reads on the index card in front of his face. ?Tell me about that.?
?Well,? he explains, ?It?s really exotic, their food?s great, architecture?s cool? I?d love to go there someday.?
?Sounds cool, good luck with it,? Kirk comments as he goes to talk to the brown-haired girl on the far right of the screen. ?And also on the Red Jaguars and also named ?Taylor?: Taylor Coombs.  How old are you??
?Thirteen,? she answers; when she smiles, her braces are visible.
?And I understand you wanna be an actress.  Tell me about that.?
?Well,? she begins, ?I?m in the drama club at my school, but I really wanna get into action movies.  I loved Fantastic Four and I?d love to play Invisible Woman someday.?
?This sounds like a really cool team,? Kirk comments. ?Let?s hear it for the Red Jaguars!? Taylor K and Taylor C high-ten as the audience cheers.

?All right! Now, why don?t you guys go get ready for the Temple Games,? Kirk says, and the players walk offscreen in different directions. ?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 them 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:
?King Midas had to travel across both land and sea to get the satyr Silenus from his palace in Phrygia to Dionysus on Mount Olympus.  Between this game and the second game, you and your partner will reenact the voyage.  When Kirk gives the signal, row out across the water until you reach the rope, then wait for your boat to be turned around, grab the floating ring, and pull yourself back to the dock.
?The first player to sail across the water and back? or the player that?s furthest along after 30 seconds? wins.?
?I hope it?ll be smooth sailing for these two,? Kirk says, standing in the middle of the dock. ?Let?s set the clock for 30 seconds.? The countdown clock appears in the bottom-right corner of the screen. ?On your marks, get set, GO!?
?Bon voyage!? Kirk calls out.  Taylor Coombs and Anna both paddle down the docks and towards the ropes.  Anna is a bit slower, but Taylor C ends up going a bit further since she veers to the side a bit.  The spotters try to make sure the boats are lined up in the center as they turn them around; that takes a little longer for Taylor C than it does for Anna, so both boats end up turned around and directly facing the dock with 16 seconds on the clock.  The two boats pull themselves back in as fast as possible, but Taylor C is a bit faster than Anna; she reappears next to Kirk with seven seconds left.  Anna makes it in just after the countdown clock fades away.
?That?s it! Nice job Taylor!? Kirk remarks, high-fiving Taylor C. ?Taylor made it back first, so the Red Jaguars get a half Pendant of Life!? The audience applauds briefly, while Kirk goes to stand by Anna. ?Silver Snakes can catch up in the next game, it?s worth a half Pendant.  Olmec, tell us about it.?

Olmec continues:
?In the first game, your partner got you across the sea to Greece from Phrygia.  Now, you must go through a forest to reach Mount Olympus and see Dionysus.  To make things easier, however, you only need to carry a rod rather than Silenus.  When Kirk gives the signal, put your rod behind your head and make your way through the forest.  Whenever you come to two trees, you must find a way to maneuver between or around them, keeping your rod behind your head and both of your hands on it.
?The first player to reach the end of the forest? or the player that?s closest to the end after 60 seconds wins.?
?The forests look just like this in Greece, too,? Kirk says. ?Let?s set the clock for 60 seconds.? The clock appears in the bottom-right corner of the screen. ?On your mark, get set, GO!?
Both Taylor Kowalczyk and Bryan start off rather slowly as they try to make their way through the forest.  The openings are hard to find at first, but the players start to speed up dramatically as the round progresses.  While the first fifteen seconds involve the two players neck-and-neck, Taylor K keeps a lead over Bryan after that point.  He gets out of the forest several seconds before Bryan does; Kirk meets the Red Jaguar when he gets out with 27 seconds remaining.
?All right! Nice job by the Red Jaguars,? Kirk comments. ?Taylor got out first for the Red Jaguars, so they got themselves another half Pendant of Life!? The audience applauds briefly. ?So now the Red Jaguars have a Pendant, Silver Snakes don?t have any yet, but this next game is worth a full Pendant.  Olmec, tell us.?

Olmec narrates:
?King Midas wished for everything he touched to turn to gold, but in this game, you?re going to help him get rid of the gold objects he doesn?t want.  When Kirk gives the signal, grab a gold object and go out to meet your partner at the middle of the path.  Then pass the object to your partner, who will slide back and place it in your team?s bin.  Then go back and do it again!
?The team that has the most objects in their bin after 60 seconds? wins!?
The camera segues to Kirk. ?This is for the Temple,? he reminds the audience. ?Let?s put 60 seconds on the clock.? The clock appears in the corner of the screen. ?On your mark, get set, GO!?
As soon as Kirk shouts ?Go,? the players use the slots in the raised sides of the tracks as handholds while they walk against the force of the bungee cords that attach the players to the walls behind them.  Both teams move rather swiftly; the Silver Snakes make contact only ten seconds in, then get their first gold object in the bin with 46 seconds remaining; the Red Jaguars are only a couple of seconds behind.  This remains the case when the second trade-offs occur; the Silver Snakes get the second object in with :32 remaining, but Red Jaguars are again only two seconds behind the Snakes.
?Both these teams know what they?re doing, it?s neck-and-neck so far!? Kirk remarks.  Taylor C slips early on her third try to get to the midpoint, but she can?t get back to the middle before Taylor K loses his grip and slides back into the wall.  On the other hand, the Silver Snakes make contact a third time and get their next object in the bin with 12 seconds remaining.  The Red Jaguars finally make contact a third time and complete the third transfer with six seconds to go.  The Silver Snakes make contact with time ticking down, but their fourth object doesn?t make it in the bin before the countdown clock reaches zero.  A pattern of ceiling spotlights flash to indicate that the third Temple Game is over.
?That?s it, time?s up!? announces Kirk.  He appears onscreen and goes in between the raised tracks to grab the bins as spotters unfasten the harnesses the players were wearing.  The players walk over to meet Kirk as soon as they?re free. ?Red got?? he counts up the scores as he pulls out the objects? ?one, two, three pieces of gold.  Silver Snakes got one, two, three pieces of gold! It?s a tie? they each get the full Pendant, giving the Silver Snakes one, but the Red Jaguars have two? they?re going to the Temple!? Taylor K and Taylor C high-ten several times while Kirk goes to talk with Bryan and Anna. ?Silver Snakes gave it a gallant effort.  They?re not going away empty-handed, we got a great gift for them and here?s what it is.? Bryan and Anna will each be receiving a copy of the Kingdom Hearts II PlayStation 2 game.
The camera cuts back to Kirk standing with the Red Jaguars in front of the equipment for the third Temple Game. ?We?ll see Taylor and Taylor try to make it through Olmec?s Temple and retrieve those Golden Grapes of Dionysus,? says Kirk, ?right after this!? The camera zooms in on the laser dome in the Laser Light Room before fading to commercial.

Rediscovery EP: The Golden Grapes of Dionysus
« Reply #3 on: June 11, 2009, 05:46:47 PM »
Kirk stands in front of the Temple's stairs next to Taylor K and Taylor C. "Welcome back to Legends," he says to the camera. "Taylor? have proven themselves worthy and earned the right to enter Olmec?s Temple.  But first, Olmec?s gonna give them some information to help them retrieve the Golden Grapes of Dionysus."
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.
?There, climb up the ladder into the Planetarium, and spin the correct sphere to open the door to the SHRIIIIiiine of the SIIILver MONkey, where you can grab the Golden Grapes of Dionysus.  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!" shouts Taylor C.
"Very well, Taylor Coombs," 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 Golden Grapes.  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 Taylor Kowalczyk's turn to enter and try his luck.  If you can reach the Golden Grapes, all the doors of the Temple will instantly unlock, and the Temple Guards will vanish.  Return through the gates with the Golden Grapes of Dionysus in three minutes, and you will be handsomely rewarded? and here's how!"
?   For just making it into the Temple, they?re both going to get Compton?s Interactive Encyclopedia on CD-ROM, provided by Compton?s New Media.
?   If they can grab the Chalice within three minutes, they?re also going to get an Ultra-Bounce trampoline provided by Bollinger.
?   And if they can bring the Chalice out of the Temple before 3 minutes is up, they?ll both be cruising to the Bahamas! A four-day cruise aboard Norwegian Cruise Line, with two pools, volleyball and basketball courts.  Norwegian Cruise Line.  It?s different out there.  A four-day cruise to the Bahamas, for a prize package totaling $13,970!

"All right, let?s get ?em that cruise!" Kirk says before turning to Taylor C. "Taylor C, let?s get you out in front.  Both of you, put your mouthpieces in.  Three minutes on the clock." The clock appears onscreen. "Lower the gate, Olmec!"
Olmec hums as he lowers the gate.
"On your mark, get set, GO!"

?There she goes! Up in the Temple!? a voice-over declares as Taylor C races up into the Room of Temple Gongs. ?With two Pendants!? She starts stage-right and hits all the gongs; in order they light up blue, purple, green, orange, silvery-white and red.  The last one opens a door, but only the door leading down into the Crevasse, so she climbs down with 2:48 on the clock.  There, she breezes through the ledges and reaches the crawl tube fairly swiftly.  She enters the Mine Shaft with 2:37 to go and starts putting rocks into the bucket; only five rocks are needed today.  Once the fifth rock is in the bucket, the stone slab is raised all the way, and Taylor C can go on into the Crystal Cave.  She slides into the room (2:25), but before she can get started on the objective, out from the corner of the room lurks the first TEMPLE GUARD!
?Woah! Temple Guard! Scared her, scared me!? the voice-over remarks as Taylor C hands over her Pendant of Life with 2:18 remaining.  She pulls down all three stalactites from the ceiling; only the door into the Dragon?s Lair opens.  So, she climbs up and sets foot in the Dragon?s Lair with 2:06 left. ?She?s making good time, she?s gotta put the horns in the dragon!? Taylor C looks around for a second, then takes the dragon horns at the front of the room and puts them in one at a time.  At 1:53, the last horn goes into the dragon head.  A roar is heard, the mystic pattern inscribed on the walls in black lights up violet and the sheet that stands in for a door flies out of the way, revealing the ladder leading upward and the second TEMPLE GUARD!
?Oh! Temple Guard again! Go Taylor K!? Kirk calls out as the live commentary begins.  Taylor K starts by going down into the Crevasse; he follows his partner?s path up through the Dragon?s Lair from there. ?Through the Mine Shaft, the Ice Caves, into the Dragon?s Room? Go, Taylor K, go!? Taylor K climbs up the ladder from the Dragon?s Lair and sets foot in the Laser Light Room with 1:22 left.  He kneels down at the laser column and starts to align the metallic segments, but before he can make any real progress, out jumps the final TEMPLE GUARD!
?It?s all right, he?s got a Pendant!? Kirk reminds the audience as Taylor K hands over his full Pendant of Life to the Temple Guard.  He then goes back to the column afterward and aligns the metal segments, going on the glass portions on them.  Once the glass portions are all lined up, they light up, along with the laser dome on top of the column, with exactly a minute left.
?One minute! One-minute warning!? shouts Kirk.  Taylor K leaves the Laser Light Room and enters the Knights? Barracks, where he grabs the sword from the railing in the front of the room and tries it on all three sheaths, starting with the stage-right sheath.  The last one he tries opens the door, and Taylor K puts the sword back in the front of the room before he leaves for the Shrine of the Silver Monkey at the 0:48 mark.  He races into the room and, after a brief search for the artifact, grabs the GOLDEN GRAPES!
?He?s GOT it!? Kirk announces when Taylor K lays hands on the Golden Grapes with 44 seconds remaining. ?All the doors are open!? Taylor K races back through the Knights? Barracks and Laser Light Room, then enters the Bridge with 32 seconds to go.  He runs across the Bridge, through the Room of the Temple Gongs and down the stairs to exit the Temple with 20 seconds left!
?They did it!? shouts Kirk as Taylor C tackle-hugs Taylor K. ?Give me those grapes!? Taylor K hands the Golden Grapes of Dionysus to Kirk, who holds them up in the air. ?They got it! They got the Golden Grapes! Nice job!? Kirk high-fives Taylor K, then is hugged by Taylor C. ?They get it all: the encyclopedia, the trampolines? They?re cruising to the Bahamas!? Taylor C shrieks in excitement and jumps up and down. ?These guys were strong all day? she was nervous, he knew he could handle it? and I love this team.  I don?t wanna leave, but we gotta.  Join us again for another great Legend of the Hidden Temple! Buh-bye!? The Shrine of the Silver Monkey, the audience and the winning team with Kirk are shown several times as the credits roll.

Rediscovery EP: The Golden Grapes of Dionysus

Temple Run Summary
Episode 50px]

Name of Artifact: The Golden Grapes of Dionysus
Season: 2
Layout: 3 (7 overall)
Result: Made it!
Time Remaining: 0:20
Team: Red Jaguars
Pendants Won: 2
Location of Artifact: The Shrine of the Silver Monkey




For the first half of Layout VII the Temple Runs were either humiliating losses or Red Jaguars wins.  However, I felt this Temple Run was a bit tougher than the one in "The Blue Royal Gown of Catherine of Braganza." Taylor Coombs and Taylor Kowalczyk held their own very nicely against a relatively tricky layout, going through some of the most difficult rooms the Temple had to offer rather than all of the easiest.

Taylor C moved at a fair pace, clearing five room objectives in just over a minute.  After she was taken out, Taylor K scaled the rest of the central shaft and moved over two rooms.  He got the Golden Grapes with 45 seconds left and made it out with twenty to spare.  Both players were very excited, and Kirk was genuinely thrilled for them.  It was a fun episode from start to finish.

Trivia and Records:
Needless to say, this is the only known time that two partners on a team shared the same first name (the intros were cut short at the start of the episode, keeping us from knowing the names of the other four teams? the first production day of Season 1 also didn't reveal most players' names).  It's also the second time the three Temple Guards appeared all in adjacent rooms, the first time being "The Jeweled Sword of Charlemagne," the last Season 1 episode to air.

That was kind of a quirky episode. The player names weren't revealed at the Moat like they usually are in the Rediscovery, and I believe that's the first team to have both partners feature the same name.

I also think it's the first time in which all three guards were in the central shaft.
