    I quess I am a purist even if it was a recap episode they should have noted it and posted it to the site else it is confusing to people who do not have access to the Discovery Kids channel.

    They keep talking about "karma" and how it's going to play a factor in the game. Which sort of hints at purple NOT winning. I personally don't see red winning, since they have had next to airtime. Not to mention they have been completely floating. Green may have a shot, but I doubt it. So for once I think the underdogs will win it, being blue!

    Woohoo! I actually remembered to watch this episode. Some things I wanted to bring up...
    • So Endurance is a kid show on a kid's channel. So I don't get why this kid's channel would play commercials that have products that are geared toward adults. For example, they played a health insurance commercial. It's just plain stupid for these products to have their commercials played on Discovery Kids.
    • After the challenge was over, Cealey thought Taylor cheated. Kelsie brought this up to Taylor. Cealey then had a confessional that had her commenting on Kelsie and how she told Taylor that. And what she said didn't make sense at all. She said something like, "If you (you meaning Purple) suck up to them, they're not going to give you guys the Samadii, they're going to give it to us, your best friends." Yeah, well, of course she's going to try save herself. Who wouldn't?
    • "Underdog" is kind of a weird term for Blue. Blue is a team that doesn't fit in with the others. But look at how much pyramid pieces each team has. Red, Green, and Purple have as much pieces Blue has!
    • In past seasons, these team colors won: blue, brown, gray, and red. All colors are different. I think it's just a coincidence that every color is different, but with the way things are going now, I don't think Blue will win since a blue team has already won. I think it's Purple who's going to win. But this is just judging on the team colors. Here's hoping I'm wrong.

    But, CrossingGuard, I see another pattern developing. Last season and this season have been identical in eliminations. Gray, yellow, orange. If that pattern continues, the blue will be eliminated next, then green, purple, and red will win. Again, I hope that's not true either.

    Hmmm... I didn't notice that, Sweetman13. But I highly doubt they'll win; they're the weakest there IMO. Actually, they're pretty much tied with Green at the moment, but because of the last challenge, I'll put Red at the bottom of the list.

    I hope they get out next.

    Episode Eleven: Create Your Own Game


    The day begins bright and early in the High Sierras, when JD gathers the contestants still in the game for a morning chat. There are only four teams left — Purple, Green, Red and Blue — and everyone is eager to find out which players will receive Max and Kristine’s, (of the now departed Orange team) lone pyramid piece. Dakota and Kelsey of Purple are confident that it is theirs, as they’d had an alliance with Orange from day one of the contest. But to Dakota’s surprise, as he reads aloud the note behind, it is revealed that Orange still holds a grudge against Purple for not placing them in the “protected position” when the superteams were formed a few days prior. In a surprising fashion not expected by anyone, Orange decides to leave their piece to Cameron and Aeriel of the Red team!
    As the contestants come to grips with the latest turn of events, JD lets loose another potential momentum-shifting surprise to the game: the final four teams will create their own game for their Endurance mission, using only a batch of supplies provided to them by JD! With that notification, JD promptly leaves the group brainstorming about their game, but the teams have a hard time reaching a consensus. Everyone seems to think their own idea is the best, especially Dakota, who leaves the group stranded to come up with something without him. Finally, Kelsey and Connor create a game that, although Dakota is quite vocal about not liking, the contestants must stick with because time has run out.

    The teams finally meet up with JD in the forest clearing to play the game. In a change of pace, Kelsey from Purple explains the rules of the game to JD! Each team must use a pan held up by sticks to catch a ball while moving across an obstacle course. Once the obstacle course is cleared, the teams must grab a flag and run back across the course to plant it in the area from where they began. The first team to get all five of their balls into the can and carry their flag back to the starting point wins. Not only are the Samadhi and another pyramid piece on the line in this afternoon’s mission, but JD has one more twist to throw into the mix before they begin: the team that comes in last in this mission will automatically go to Temple the next day! The pressure is on big time, and JD begins the game. Purple is first to get a ball in, then Blue. Blue displays excellent teamwork, communicating at every step. Then, suddenly, Cealey’s ball flies into Blue’s lane and hits Taylor in the elbow. Alex screams in protest, proclaiming, “What the heck?” Blue perseveres and takes the lead. At one point it seems like Purple is close to catching up, but Blue forges ahead. Taylor and Connor ultimately win the game. Taylor does a celebratory dance, while the other teams look on in frustration. Blue has beaten the odds again to come out on top, while Red, the last-place finisher, is guaranteed a trip to Temple unless they win the next Temple mission. After the game, Cealey, still infuriated, tells Taylor that she hit their ball, with little response.

    Back at camp, Taylor says she wants to give the Samadhi to Green, because of Cealey. Connor, however, believes the best strategy is to target Purple, despite his partner’s grudge. Connor tells Kelsey that Purple is most likely getting the Samadhi that evening. Meanwhile, Cealey and Alex continue to lament over the fact that Taylor hit their ball during the mission. Cealey speculates that Taylor hit their ball on purpose, because she didn’t apologize for doing it.

    Later on, in a last-ditch attempt to save her team from the Samadhi, Kelsey reveals to Taylor that Cealey is telling the other contestants that Taylor cheated during the mission! Taylor starts to cry and wonders why everyone hates her. Kelsey comforts her and then suggests that she could get back at Cealey by giving Green the Samadhi. Kelsey thinks Purple doesn’t deserve it, since she always comforts Taylor. Meanwhile, Cealey sees Taylor and Kelsey talking and heads off to confront Kelsey about her new “friendship.”

    Later, Taylor tells Connor she is having second thoughts about giving the Samadhi to Purple. She pleads with Connor to give it to another team, because Kelsey is the only player left in the game who is still nice to her. Connor begs Taylor to be smart and to not trust Purple, since they have plotted to get Blue out of the game twice. He is adamant that they must handicap Purple, since they are the strongest team. At the same time, down below at the treehouses, Cealey is lambasting Kelsey about spending so much time with Taylor. Kelsey counters that she has only been doing that because Cealey spends all her time with Dakota now. They realize it was a misunderstanding, but then Kelsey tells Cealey that Taylor was crying earlier when she heard Cealey accusing her of cheating. Cealey is appalled and starts yelling loudly about how much Taylor cries. Ariel runs down to tell them that Taylor is now crying because she hears them talking! Cealey begins to yell even louder, and laughs at how much Taylor cries. Kelsey confides in the other girls that the only reason she is being nice to Taylor is because they have six pieces. Although envious at first, Aeriel and Cealey concede, and congratulate Kelsey on her brilliant strategy.

    The teams head off to the ridge to talk to JD. Will Connor’s reasoning prevail? Will Taylor agree to give the Samadhi to Purple and thus cripple the strongest team? JD asks Red if they are worried about their automatic Temple position. Cameron says they will try hard tomorrow to change their fate. JD then notices that Taylor looks unhappy. After some prodding, she admits that she is upset that Cealey called her a cheater. JD turns to Cealey, who replies that she doesn’t necessarily think Taylor cheated, but that she seemed happy to have hit Green’s ball. JD wonders why the two girls can’t get along. Cealey responds that some friendships just weren’t meant to be. JD says he doesn’t agree with that, and reminds the players that in life they’re not always going to be around people they like, but that they must make an effort to get along. He urges the two girls to try to get to know each other and move beyond the game. Finally, JD asks Blue for their decision about which team they’re giving the Samadhi to. Blue announces that they will give the Samadhi to Purple. JD breaks open the Samadhi — inside is a 5-foot-long rope. He tells Dakota and Kelsey that they will have a 5-foot disadvantage in tomorrow’s Temple mission. JD bids the group goodnight and leaves them to wonder about the events that had transpired during the day and, more importantly, what mission they will be facing next. Did Blue make the right decision by giving the Samadhi to Purple instead of Green? Will Red be able to rise above the game’s latest twist and bypass the Temple tomorrow by winning the mission? Find out next time on Endurance: High Sierras!

    I remembered again! I think this is a record.

    So anyway, my heart was beating like crazy. I thought red was gonna get it, but blue got the last 2 and won it. Man, I hope they win. But if they don't win, I would like purple to get it. They're the masterminds of the strategies and they're pretty good at challenges, so at least they deserve it. Unlike green, who I would be so mad at if they won. They don't deserve it at all.

    So I saw something in the preview.....
    Click to see Spoiler:
    Connor was holding the red team's piece in his hand when J.D. was telling them about the twist. So I think that the red team gave it to them, which is weird. I could be wrong though; J.D. might tell them about the twist before they read they red team's letter.

    Episode Twelve: Fill 'er Up


    There’s no time wasted this morning in the High Sierras, as the episode opens with the final four remaining teams arriving at the forest clearing to compete in the day’s Temple mission! With so few teams left, winning the mission has never been so important to everyone’s main goal of becoming the next Endurance champion! Cameron and Aeriel of Red have already dubiously earned an automatic bid to Temple, unless they win today’s mission outright. The pair came in last place in the previous day’s Endurance mission. Dakota and Kelsey of Purple are playing at a disadvantage as well; they have been handicapped with the Samadhi, courtesy of the Blue team.
    JD explains the rules of the game, “Fill ’er Up.” Each team will have to fill a clear tube with water, which they must gather from containers across the clearing. Each clear tube has a team’s color floatation device inside. The first team to force the floating device to fall out of the tube, due to the tube’s full capacity, wins. But there is a catch: the only tool the teams have to transport the water is another tube-ish pipe that is completely opened on each end! By being in possession of the Samadhi, the Purple team will be forced to travel an extra 5 feet to get to and from their tube.

    On JD’s mark, the teams are off. Purple takes an early lead, while Green, Blue and Red have no luck bringing back any water. All the teams experiment with different ways to carry water in their pipes, but Dakota seemingly masters an effective technique early on and practically plays the mission by himself! Dakota’s large hands are able to cover the entire hole on one end of his pipe, so without much competition from the other teams, and despite the Samadhi, the Purple team is easily the first one to make their float rise out of the tube and fall onto the ground. They win by a landslide!

    With Dakota and Kelsey winning, there is seemingly no question in Taylor’s and Connor’s minds that Blue will be sent to Temple for the third consecutive time to vie against the Red team. Connor and Taylor are already prepared mentally to return to Temple — however, the Blue team is nervous, because they know that no team has ever gone to the Temple of Fate three times and has successfully come back three times.

    Later on, at the Temple, the rookie Red team and the battle-testing Blue team meet up with JD. Getting off to a quick start, Red wins the first round by picking wood over Blue’s water. But in the second round, Blue ties up the game when they pick water again, putting out Red’s fire. And in the third and final round, Blue picks fire while Red picks wood. The Blue team wins … and Connor and Taylor make Endurance history! They are the first team to survive Temple three times! Not only have they achieved an Endurance first, they still have the lead in the game with six pieces!

    Once Blue returns to the camp, Purple and Green are in complete shock; they both expected Red to return. The welcome isn’t as friendly as it had been in the past, but nonetheless, Blue is back! But will the “never-say-die” Blue team make it to the Endurance finals? Or will the Purple-Green alliance, one that was forged at the start of the game and has lasted throughout the contest, finally prove to be too great and send Blue packing? Find out next time on Endurance: High Sierras!
