Welcome to this weeks episode of:
GUESS THE OUTCOME
Tonight we find our mole hunters in the difficult position of having to solve a puzzle in 60 minutes in order to defuse a bomb and keep it from blowing $50,000 to smithereens.
The video which puddin linked for us in the episode 9 video thread shows that our trio have found what they think to be the correct answer and with less than one minute left head to the bomb to cut the proper wire and save their money.
They have the wire.......wire cutters are in place.......time ticking down......ready to cut........but of course a problem ensues. They start to chatter and wonder if the wire is the correct one, etc. Ohhhhh, the tension. All that money on the line. Cut the wire and the mole was unsuccessful. The three of the are seen in what appears to be a happy moment of celebration. Yeaaaa molehunters. But does it happen?
The sneek peek video released on ABC also shows the bomb defusing mission also. Toward the end we hear the bomb ticking.....then ticking even faster......just like in the movies when with 1 or 2 seconds left the hero triumphs and deactivates the bomb saving dozens of schoolchildren or a busload of cheerleaders.
But I wonder if it happens. So I am going to try and GUESS THE OUTCOME.
The celebratory pose the three are in says to me that they succeed in stopping the bomb in time. Jon walks in and tells the group: "Congratulations, you have successfully defused the bomb". A moment of silence from him to let the players look happy.......and then......."but we have a problem". "During the mission, there was interference with the timekeeping device. The second hand was prevented from moving for 6 seconds, and since you cut the wire with only 2 seconds remaining, you were actually 4 seconds late and the bomb should have detonated. Therefore, you are penalized 4 seconds and DO NOT win any money for the pot".
All this probably does not happen but I am posting it for 2 reasons. First, I like this outcome better than if they succeed and win the money. Second, in the video on ABC Craig walks over and stops the clock from moving.
You can see Nicole standing by the board working on the solution, Mark is back by the blue wall, and Craig apparently walks over to the clock to see how much time they have left. He grabs the second hand and it quits moving but you can't tell how long he holds it because the shot cuts away.
I like surprises so I am guessing this outcome. Anyone else want to play and take a shot at it?
