The Infamous Cricket Cage run
« on: August 24, 2006, 05:46:34 PM »
I'll be honest here about this run.  I believe that the first runner for the Snakes in the temple actually did know what he was doing, unlike what the summaries of the run on Nicklegends' site says.  He was just a little apprehensive, that's all (not unlike Miriam from The Secret Map of the Bandit Queen).  Truthfully, he accessed all 4 of the rooms in the run in less than a minute before being removed in the Heart Room.  This was quite common in the first season, actually.
His teammate, however, probably did not know what to do.  She just wandered around aimlessly (more or less) for the remaining 2 minutes.  Since it was still relatively early on, maybe the workings of the temple weren't described to her well enough by the production staff?  Is it possible that the correct route all along was to go straight to the Observatory from the Wall Climb instead of going into the Throne Room and then going up the shaft?

John was so smart, that when the Throne Room-Spider's Lair door didn't open, be backtracked to the Cave of Size???

Like I said, he was apprehensive.  Probably thought the temple was going to be a little easier than he thought.  At least he realized his mistake.
