I gave Henry Morgan a 9! This was one of the most exciting temple runs on the show and it never gets old either. The Silver Snakes were a solid team although they blew a couple of chances at a solo run. But their biggest mistake is when they used the ladders in the Jester's Court. :afro: What kind of losers do that? All jokes aside, it was a good effort and my favorite part at the end is where Matt and Ashley were excited for just reaching the artifact.  :mrsilver: This was a solid run despite it being a loss. And yes, I even rated it higher than Benzibab because I like this one over Robbie's favorite run. ;)  :mrsilver:

Shem, not Matt. ;)

And I gave it an 8. Definitely a thriller, but it really should've been a solo win (Ashley found the key in the Dark Forest, but didn't use it to enter the Shrine, which would've enabled her to avoid the temple guard in the Mine Shaft).

Also, does anyone else think this would've been a win if Shem had gone directly into the Mandarin Hand Room? Everyone thinks Shem still would've lost even if he did that. But Shem had PLENTY of time by the time he was done with the King's Storeroom. I'm willing to bet he would've escaped with 10 seconds left on the clock if he had done that. So Shem was also responsible for this loss. I don't know, am I the only person who thinks Shem would've won if he didn't detour into the Observatory? =/

I was about to say the same thing about Shem! I think he should get some blame too, especially since Jonathan from William the Conqueror gets criticism for almost the same mistake. He completed the King's Storeroom with 21 seconds left. He would've grabbed the Golden Earring with 15 seconds. Would he have won? It would've been VERY close. I mean Kristen from Priceless Portrait grabbed her artifact with 14 seconds left and her time ran out in the Ledges. Shem probably would've had the same ending. But he was also a beast too, so I think he could've pulled it off. So I agree, he deserves some blame to an extent. ;)

Well, Kristen moved a little slower, that's why she didn't escape in time with the portrait. But Shem moved like a beast the entire time, so I'm pretty confident he would've escaped in time. All he had to do was grab artifact, swing on a rope, race down the stairs, which really wouldn't have taken any time at all. So Shem probably would've escaped with about 5 seconds or so left on the clock. Shem definitely deserves some blame, but Ashley is even more so to blame. Since she didn't use the Forest/Shrine passage. Plus, both players wasted time by climbing down the ladders. So without those mistake, they could've easily have won. Oh well, still a great run nonetheless. ;)

I forgot that Shem could use the top floor to escape. :P If that was the case, I think he would have a chance to escape with the artifact. The top floor was definitely easier to escape with. And since he was uber fast, I could count on him to pull it off. ;) And I think he does deserve blame for this loss too. Although Ashley's mistake was more glaring than Shem's IMO. She had a solo run in her hands, but she plowed through the stone wall and got taken out by the only Mine Shaft guar ever. Definitely one of the best losses after Ivan the Terrible though. ;)

Yeah, those two mistakes are the reasons I didn't rate it a 9 or a 10. An 8 is good enough for me. And Shem definitely would've won if he escaped via the top route of the temple. Regardless, Henry Morgan is easily one of the best losses on the show. Discarded Seal is still #1 to me though. Henry Morgan is a close second for me. ;)

*coughDiscardedSealcough*

And as far as I'm concerned, Discarded Seal is THE only flawless loss on the show. But back to the ladder climbing bandits.... :afro:

I gave the Great Seal an 8. Despite it being a triple capture run, it was one of the most exciting and quirky losses on the show. It featured a good team, some hilarious temple guard captures, silly Kirk commentary, and of course the classic ending where Nick jumps out of the temple. This was a solid run and the team would've easily won if they had another half-pendant. Even though I like Kamehameha better, this one was still a solid run. ;) :mrsilver:

I also gave it an 8, for same reasons. But honestly, I prefer this run over Kamehameha. It was A LOT more exciting, and a lot less flawed. I don't know, I always preferred this run over Kamehameha.
