I'm not sure about that... the top "half" looks to be thinner than the bottom "half", like it's the wrist strap part of the half-pendant:



As for the discoloration, I think it's just some light shining on that part of the door frame.

I'm sorry, but I do not think that this is a half pendant.

If you look at the picture closely, in the circled area there's a white-ish strip that runs along the base of the opening, but it terminates right where you all believe the half pendant is hanging.

I think that what TRJ has circled in this picture is just a piece of trimming that had become partially dislodged from its spot at the bottom of this opening. I think that the trim's purpose would be to cover up the 90 degree angle so the contestants wouldn't be injured by knocking body parts into it.

I think that this is the same for the Jedediah Smith half pendant as well.

Notice that the hanging object forks in 2 directions just below the opening. As seen in previous confirmed half pendant pictures, the hanging half pendant never forked in multiple directions like that. It just laid flat against the wall.

The thing is though that piece of "decoration" is only seen in the runs mentioned in these several posts - "Jedediah Smith", "Xerxes", and "Mount Kilimanjaro". Is it just a coincidence that all of these runs were 1.5 runs from the same production day and there was a crescent looking object below the Jester's Court door and each of these runs? Not to mention, these three runs featured similar paths where the team was forced on the bottom floor en route to the artifact. I really wish we could get a good shot of the Jester's Court in the "Henry Hudson" run since that team had two pendants, but I looked and we don't really get a close-up on the Jester's Court.

And if that is really suppose to be a safety device, then why is it not present in temple runs before and after these set of episodes? Watch episodes like "Sir Gawain" and "Chandragupta", you don't see that safety device all, and those came 3 or 4 runs before "Mount Kilimanjaro". And the quality of the videos don't even give you a close-up on what the object is, so you can't just say that it doesn't look like a half-pendant when we can't even see it close-up.

And as for "Xerxes", who really knows what Noelle was trying to do? I mean whatever that gesture meant didn't mean she found the half-pendant hanging from the actuators. You can look at them closely and you don't see any crescent-shaped objects on them. I sure don't see them and I have watched this suckfest countless times.

I still think that's the half pendant hanging in all three episodes. Maybe we should ask nicklegends what he thinks?

I don't see how that is not the half-pendant. All three episodes shared the same path where they had to pass through the entire bottom floor in order to reach their respective artifacts on the upper floor. All three temple runs also had their first temple guard in the Tomb of the Headless Kings also. And where else would the half-pendants be in "Jedediah Smith" and "Kilimanjaro"? The final temple guard in "Kilimanjaro" was in the Quicksand Bog, so it had to be close by. And Irish took the most direct path open to her in "Jedediah Smith". So having the half-pendant in the Jester's Court made sense because it was before the final temple guard.

Yeah, I fail to see how that is NOT a half pendant. And the "there's no decoration after that filming day" theory doesn't make sense. If the half pendants in those runs were not in the Jesters' Court, where else would it be? It would make no sense to hide them anywhere else. :?

It would've been nice to get a shot of the Jester's Court in the "Henry Hudson" run so we could truly determine if that was some sort of decoration or not. But of you watch the production day before it, the said decoration is not in either "Bandit Queen" or "Chandragupta". I haven't checked any of the runs after the "Xerxes" production day, but it would be pretty unusual to use that decoration for just one production day.

There was no decoration in runs like Mussel-Shell Armor and Metal Beard. Because of this, that has to be the half pendant. The one thing that throws this off is Noelle's hand signal in the same room. What she was doing with that, I don't know. Maybe she thought what she saw was the half pendant but it truly wasn't?

The only run filmed the day after Xerxes' production day in which the Jesters' Court was entered was "The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible", and there was nothing there.

It would be just so random to have that decoration piece for four episodes and not used in any other. And it makes sense for them to keep the half-pendant there, considering none of the teams found it all during that day. And since most of their paths were similar with similar temple guard encounters, there was no need really to hide it anywhere else.

The main reason I don't think it's the half pendant is because it just looks a little smaller than what the half pendant would look like.

If someone can get a picture that shows the object with more depth, than I might be persuaded to change my mind.

Hi, this is my first time attempting to attach screenshots on this site. I have convincing screenshots on my computer of the half pendant being on the door from the Jester's Court to the Dark Forest for the Snowcone, Bent Shaving Pan, and Marble Armrest episodes. The file is currently too large to attach, but if you can explain to me how to attach it, I will get the screenshots posted.

I hope this verifies the undoubted existence of the half pendants for those three episodes.  (Screenshots courtesy youtube.com videos posted by ChargerTheWolf)

Thank you for the images, PurpleParrot4Life! :mrpurple: I think they are very convincing that the half-pendant was indeed located in those three runs. Just the fact that its not in "The Secret Map of the Bandit Queen" temple run (which aired 2-3 episodes before "Mount Kilimanjaro") is enough reasoning to believe that was not some piece of decoration they placed there for one production day. Since none of the teams bothered to find it in any of the temple runs, the producers probably felt no need to hide it in a different place. And all three of those temple runs have similar layouts too. So why not keep it in the same place?

And I agree that the half-pendant was definitely NOT on the Jester's Court painting in "Xerxes". I know some people have been saying this for years, but I have never once saw it. We don't even know what Noelle was trying to signal. The cameraman might've said something to her or she might've saw the half-pendant hanging from the Dark Forest door when she entered the room, so she signaled to Pat. But it is unclear what she was trying to signal, so we can't assume that it was just based on the half-pendant.

I really need to watch the "Henry Hudson" run to see if that decoration is on the door area or not.
