Who is The Mole?
Posted August 4, 2008on:
Craig’s laugh on the beginning of the show sounded a little evilish. Edit note: I was right Craig is The Mole, read here. Nicole, like me, also suspected Craig, whereas Craig suspected Mark. Mark, in the mean time, was still undecided.
The first challenge was hard and confusing at first. They had to defuse a bomb and all clues were scattered all around the room. Without giving any instructions, Jon left the 3 players to solve the mission. Craig found the hidden time zone, and Mark and Nicole got to read the time zone map and wrote it on the board (so one of them could sabotage the mission by reading the wrong number). After getting weird combination of letters, Craig suggested to double check with the map again, which was a handy way to waste time. It turned out that Nicole misread the some of the cities’ time zone. After, partly solving the clue, they ended up with Red + Blue. They could not decide to cut Red and Blue wires or purple one. Craig thought Mark was over-thinking stuff (they had only more than a minute) and stalled the mission. Nicole called Purple, and it was right!
The second and final mission in the game was an invidual mission to race and solve clues upon clues. The first one to finish would have a huge decision to make: to add more money to the pot OR to get a clue about the mole. Craig had the advantage because he learned about the area since he got there, on the other hand, Mark was having a hard time getting to his first destination, but he recovered and picked up his pace. Meanwhile, Nicole did a little crazy dancing and didn’t even complete her task. Nicole had been acting weird (not the first time she did it), but it made me suspect Nicole a little.
So Craig and Mark were neck to neck to their final destination. Mark was a better runner, but he had to run farther (he was going to the wrong direction in the beginning). In the end, Mark won and he decided to take the briefcase, but we didn’t get a peek at all, darn it! 😛 Because Mark took the briefcase, Craig even suspected him to be the mole, because that’s just logical what the mole would do.
Tonight’s quiz had 20 questions instead of the usual 10, and apparently today is not the finale! 😕 No one got executed and the mole will be revealed next week, along with the clues leading to him/her along the way. How the mole sabotaged the mission also would be revealed. The season finale of the mole will air on August 12 at 10 pm EST on abc, don’t miss it! 🙂 Next week is gonna be a great finale, can’t wait.
So who do you think is the Mole? I still believe it’s Craig.
