I was very surprised to find that Craig was the Mole, but on second glance, I fell into the executed contestants' mindsets and believed that Craig couldn't be the Mole. I'd be executed real quickly, let me tell you. At the end, I had thought that Mark was the Mole. But Craig's glance at the end of Three to Tango really threw me off. Well, here are the Decoded Official Clues.

This is the chord diagram for B Minor which also happens to be one of the chords in Alex's "Mole Hunting" song.
