    Jezie gave them a lot of material to work with, honestly I feel this show has a lot of integrity and I don't think they try to manipulate us like some things on MTV and VH1 reality shows. Competitions bring out some ugly sides to a person and I do think they show a true side of somebody, not all of them just a part of them. Things you would not normally see when you just hang out with a person,.

    recap - episode 4

    Weekly Recap
    Episode Four: Hot Potato


    It’s a new morning in the High Sierras, and there are now 14 players left in the game — the seven official teams of Endurance. JD gathers the group together to announce whom Garret and Anna have left the all-important Immunity piece to. Everyone seems to be convinced that Red will be getting it, because Anna’s best friend was Aeriel, and Garret was close to Cameron. Everyone knows what’s at stake: whoever is awarded the Immunity piece will have a huge advantage in the game. But as Aeriel reads Garrett and Anna’s parting letter, everyone is shocked. Garret and Anna have inexplicably left the Immunity piece to the PURPLE team! Before JD bids the group farewell, he reminds them that there is an Endurance mission to be played later in the day. With that, Purple hangs their piece and claims an early lead in the game. They now have two total pieces and immunity.
    As the contestants wait to play the day’s mission, everyone continues to get to know his/her teammate. For the most part, everyone seems to be very content with their partner — everyone but the Blue team, that is. Taylor is aware that Ike has made one or two enemies already; there is a perception that he is telling every team something different and trying to turn teams against one another. In a heated discussion, Taylor tells Ike that everyone wants him gone and not to ruin this game for her.

    Finally, the teams gather for the first Endurance mission played in the High Sierras. JD explains the “Hot Potato” game: Teammates will have to work together to transport water from one end of an obstacle course to the other using a small bowl balanced between two short poles. The first team to fill their bowl will see their colored flag rise up and will win the game. But in one of the biggest-ever surprise twists before they begin the challenge, JD reveals what Samadhi they are playing for: The right to switch partners for two teams!! The teams are shocked, as the stakes for an Endurance mission have never been higher!

    With the reward for finishing first freshly in the players’ minds, the game begins. Green takes an early lead, but the game is extremely hard and many teams drop their buckets and have to start all over. Red soon pulls ahead, but then drops their bucket and loses their lead. It’s anybody’s game, but out of the blue finally one flag goes up. To everyone’s surprise, the bickering Blue team has won the game and the right to switch two teams. The rest of the contestants are visibly devastated; everyone knows that Taylor has been unhappy with Ike as her partner. Will she take karma into her own hands and get herself a better partner?

    Back at camp, the Blue team gathers everyone for a group meeting. Surprisingly, Taylor is unhappy that she holds this responsibility and wants input from the group. She doesn’t want a target on her back, and is certain that if she messes up teams in the primary alliance, she will be sent to Temple. Everyone agrees that Purple shouldn’t be switched, since they already have two pieces and immunity. Unexpectedly, Green and Red volunteer to switch their teams. Cealey wants to take the burden on herself, because she knows she can adapt to a new situation. After that decision has been made, Dakota comes up with an alternate scheme that will save his friends. He tells Cameron to ask for the Samadhi from Blue so that Red can announce the decision that is going to affect their own team. Then Cameron can actually go ahead and switch Blue and Gray instead! Alex tries to convince Taylor to give the Samadhi to Cameron, and she says that’s what she’s going to do.

    The teams meet JD at the Ridge to hear the Blue team’s decision on the partner switch. Taylor tells him that it has been a hard decision and she doesn’t want to hurt anyone, but they have discussed it as a group and have decided that Red and Green will switch. But the catch, Taylor tells JD, is that Cameron has offered to have her give him the Samadhi, and he will announce the decision. JD questions why Taylor wouldn’t just make the announcement herself. She says that she and Cameron agreed that he would be the one to do it. Taylor unknowingly hands the power to Cameron, confident that he is going to announce the intended plan. Cameron takes the Samadhi, and JD asks which player he is switching first. Cameron says, “I’m sorry, but the first person I’m switching is ... Conner, to the Blue team.” Taylor is shocked and begins to cry. Everyone else seemsshocked as well. JD then asks if that means Ike will be going to the Gray team. Cameron pauses and says, “You know what. I can’t do this. ” Everyone is shocked and confused — what is Cameron going to do? Find out next time on Endurance: High Sierras!

    Taylor might be an emotional wreck by the end of this if she stays there long.

    ep 5 recap

    This week's episode of Endurance: High Sierras begins right where the last one left off — with Cameron trying to decide which two teams to switch after Blue team gave him the power to make the call. Will he go with the plan he agreed upon with Blue and switch the Red and Green teams? Or will he choose to go with the secret plan devised by Dakota to switch unsuspecting the Gray and Blue players? Everyone is on pins and needles, as the final decision hangs in the balance. Finally, after consulting with his partner, Aeriel, and getting some additional input from Alex on the Green team, Cameron goes with the secret plan! Connor and Ike switch teams, making Connor and Taylor the newly formed Blue team, and Ike and Darci the newly formed Gray team! Understandably, all of the contestants involved in the partner switch are upset, but Taylor especially so. She feels crushed that her trust in others has been shattered.
    Several contestants are in tears, not only those who were directly involved with the switch, but also those who anonymously took part in the plot and had to witness the events unfold. JD asks Dakota whether he knew about the plot behind Blue’s and Gray’s backs. When JD finally drags an admission out of Dakota, and he assumes responsibility for the idea of switching Blue and Gray, JD asks him why he didn’t take other people’s feelings into account when devising his plan. Unable to come up with an answer, other than stammering “Feelings are a part of the game, but ... ”, Taylor abruptly interrupts him stating “Obviously they’re [feelings] not enough!” All Dakota can do in response is to put his head down in shame. Before he dismisses the contestants from the ridge, JD reminds them that there’s a game to be played tomorrow, and it’ll be a brand-new day.

    The next morning dawns to find the new team members getting accustomed to their new partners while still trying to find out exactly what happened. Blue and Gray are all surprised to learn that everybody knew about the secret plan but them! The Blue team seems OK with the switch, but the newly formed Gray team feels like they are targets.

    Later on, the teams meet with JD to play the “Move It Along” Endurance mission. The Blue players are excited to try out their new partnership, while Ike and Darci are nervous that if they don’t win they will be given the Samadhi. JD tells the contestants that they’ll have to race from one end of a course to the other — without touching the ground — by standing with their teammates on small wooden blocks and maneuvering themselves down the course. The first team to finish without falling and hitting the ground wins the Discipline pyramid piece and the all-powerful Samadhi. The game begins with numerous teams falling off their blocks and having to start over. But after a while, the newly formed Blue team finds a rhythm and pulls ahead to win the mission. All of a sudden, the Blue players find themselves with a two-piece lead over the other teams, and they hold the power to the Samadhi!

    The result of the Endurance mission leaves everyone scrambling to figure out who Blue will give the Samadhi to. The Gray team is very nervous, knowing that most of the other teams are close and they are sort of the outsiders of the group. The Blue players retire to the crow’s nest, where they debate on who should receive the Samadhi. Connor thinks if they give it to anyone but Gray, they will end up with four enemies. However, it’s a tough decision for him to handicap his old teammate, Darci. Taylor thinks that, although it’s a tough decision to give the Samadhi to Gray, it’s also the safest play they can make given the circumstances.

    Back at the ridge, JD starts to talk about Dakota and the secret plan for the switch. Alex and the others finally reveal that they all were part of the plot, with the exception of Gray and Blue. JD reminds everyone how karma will come to play in the game this year, and what goes around may in fact come back around. Dakota promises that he will never again be part of such a backhanded plan. When it comes time to hand out the Samadhi, Blue takes the safe route and gives the Samadhi to their old partners on the Gray team. When Ike cracks it open, it is revealed that they will have a 20-second penalty in tomorrow’s first Temple mission. As the sun sets on the ridge, the Gray team knows that it’s make it or break it time; they have to win tomorrow’s mission or face being one of the first teams sent to the Temple of Fate. Will Gray beat the odds and win tomorrow’s mission, or will the curse of the Gray team extend to another year? Find out next time on Endurance: High Sierras!

    Well, I'll post another recap when Discovery Kids ever shows a new episode. Right now 5 eps have been shown, 1:Balance is the Key, 2:Hanging Around, 3:Unwind, 4:Hot Potato, and 5:Move it Along. Looks as if DK are just repeating these 5 eps for now and yes it is totally frustrating. You will see them throught December and they are running a bit of a marathon Jan 1st from 3:30AM to 5:30AM and will show all 5 eps again. Hopefully sometime in January DK will show the rest of the series. How they hope to keep any kind of fan following is beyond me, but since it is a "kid's" channel maybe they thing endless repeats will satisfy the viewers.
