Wow, the results are all over the place this time around.  :lol:

The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible - A very easy choice and the one everyone seems to agree on.  Travis and Elisa were easily one of the top 5 teams ever in the Temple, but they still lost because of the most vicious layout ever.

The War Fan of the 47 Ronin - I originally wasn't going to say this one, but I watched the run again and it reminded me that the door re-locking wasn't the only thing that screwed them.  There was also a mishap in the Tomb of the Headless Kings with where the skull ended up being (it's hard to tell for sure, but to me it looks it was there from the beginning as if they set it aside while resetting from the last run and then forgot to put it in the ceiling compartments).  After remembering that, I am totally convinced that Jeremy and Elise would've won if everything had gone smoothly.

The Useless Map of the Chibcha Chieftain - Three things happened that caused this to be a triple capture, and only one of them was actually the team's own fault.  It's hard to say if Hallie and Jared would've won had they been able to continue, but I still think they deserve a second chance.

The Mummified Hand of the Egyptian King - Chaos ensued after the dropped pendant and I'd like to see how well they would've done had that not happened, because Maggie and Josh were actually a pretty good team.

The Bullet-Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd - Leah and Matthew were an outstanding team despite taking a longer path than they needed to.  The main reason I say they deserve a second chance is because the layout no less very difficult and I'm not entirely convinced they would've won even with the most efficient path.

It was really hard to narrow it down to just 5.  If I could've, I would've easily thrown in both The Golden Cup of Belshazzar and The Missing Eye of David.

Golden Cup of Belshazzar: Katherine and Sean tried to continue moving forward, but were trapped by "dead ends" in both the Room of Harmonic Convergence and the Treasure Room.

Mummified Hand of the Egyptian Queen: Maggie's dropping her pendant was obviously accidental. Josh was able to find the pendant, and then was wise to go directly into the King's Storeroom. Unfortunately, that decision ended up bringing him around the other half pendant. With 50 seconds left on the clock, this team would have definitely at least reached the Mummified Hand if things turned out in their favor.

Bullet-Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd: Leah made great time in the temple, reaching her seventh room in two minutes. The only thing that she could have done differently was avoid the King's Storeroom, but she still completed that extra room swiftly. Matthew followed up on her path incredibly well, and was even able to advance an additional two rooms. I doubt that the would have been granted access directly into the Shrine, even if he had tried that door. Leah and Matthew were a very strong team, and had their path not been so long, I think they would have been victorious.

Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible: Similarly to Leah and Matthew, Travis and Elisa were a strong team with a nearly flawless performance in the temple. Travis made great time and was removed deep in the temple. Elisa followed up on the path incredibly well and completed two more rooms when time expired. Had they been part of a different production day, victory would have been almost guaranteed.

War Fan of the 47 Ronin: Jeremy did not intentionally shut the door leading to the Tomb of the Headless Kings. He made it to the Secret Password in good time as well. Elise was held up in the crawlspace to the Tomb of the Headless Kings for 30 seconds, but still ended only one room short of the artifact. I would have liked to see how they would have done under other circumstances, especially considering that in their run, they encountered the delay and only had one pendant.
