I thought this was a 10 episode season, but we had a new episode tonight. Spoiler below:




























Of all rooms to cause the team trouble in the temple, it was the Steamy Hollows. The front runner kept making the same stupid mistake, stepping on the wrong button and wasting time having to do it all over again. That cost the team precious time and of course, the Queen's Armory caused problems again. One piece of armor fell off at the end and it had to be put back on. Horrible room is horrible. Oddly enough, the Pit of Despair had the artifact. That's a first. Sadly, time ran out as the second runner was on the ladder between the Queen's Armory and Dark Forest.

Hey, I was thinking about making a reaction meme template on DeviantArt to the infamous Snow Cone episode’s intro with a character thinking or saying “WTF?!”. Do any of you approve of that idea I just hatched from my brain?

Last episode spoiler below for tonight's temple run...



















Yet another difficult temple run. The item was in the Crypt of the Heartless, the bottom room next to the Crystal Senote. This layout was set up in a way that the Green Monkeys had to enter EVERY room except one (the Room of the Lost Treasure, the center room below the Shrine of the Silver Monkey, would've been that room). That's ten rooms! That's crazy. The front runner was fast and got taken out of the temple at the Steamy Hollows. He gave his partner plenty of time to win, but not only was she pretty slow, but the Queen's Armory struck again. I think it killed at least 40 seconds. Pieces of armor kept falling off and because the second runner wasn't that tall, she struggled to get the headdress on at the end before time ran out.

If this show gets another season, I hope that the Queen's Armory goes away. That room is such a time killer and it's apparent that it's a pain to get each armor item onto the queen. The room doesn't even look that fun to go through. As a viewer, that looks like a tedious objective to complete. I say replace it with something else; something that isn't boring to watch and doesn't waste so much time.

It's sad that this season's finale ended in a loss and sadly, given the low viewership these episodes have gotten, I'm not that optimistic that this version will get another season. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Near day late edit: I completely forgot that there was a door from the Queen's Armory that leads to the Pit of Despair, so there was a chance the second runner could've avoided the Dark Forest if given the chance. That means this could've been another 9 room run, but that still would've been a lot.

Is it me or are these temple layouts insanely difficult? Even with the added minute to the clock, teams are still struggling to even reach the item. Some of the rooms being big time wasters like the Queen's Armory doesn't help.
This week's takes the cake. NINE rooms?
