(merge with current thread please - I didn't feel like digging for the old thread)
Oddly the status bar had a '1/2' symbol on it, denoting 15 and a half minutes into their quest! Usually they'd just round up to the nearest minute.
Hordriss wanted the team to recover a shin-bone from a Sphinx. In return, they got a box containing a pixie, and information not to open it until they encounter opposition forces - and the pixie won't work on Frightknights.
In the next room, Skarkill and a couple of goblins appeared. They opened the box and Pixel the Pixie came out, and stabbed Skarkill with her needle a few times! Skarkill ran off with his goblins! After that they had to thank Pixel for her help, and she agreed to stay with them to fight off more enemies later - but no Frightknights!
Through an eye-shield sequence, and then the very first appearance of a causeway! They opened the box and Pixel gave some information "Don't be offensive."
The team were clearly surprised when the blocks started dropping, and I'm sure the viewers were too! Although they chose the right path, they made the dungeoneer sidestep one too many to the right and fall off the causeway! Ooh, nasty!
Next is Richard's team from Kent. Since I missed the beginning of the 1st episode, I noticed two more changes here. The teams are asked which quest item they wanted to retrieve - this team chose the Cup. In this series, Treguard asks the dungeoneer if he had second thoughts before putting the helmet on him!
Came onto Smirkenoff and through a flight sequence, landing in front of a castle. Is that Bodiam Castle in Sussex?
At the castle gate, the team found some food and other clue objects. Found a spy-glass and used it to spy on Lord Fear. Learned that Skarkill is looking for the dungeoneer, and wants paying for his services! Just put the spy-glass down in time.
They opened the strange bottle and Pixel's voice came out! She said that she'd only come out if there were some fresh flowers around. They decided to take the bottle and the silver - wisely leaving the dagger.
Next was another causeway, this time with Rock, Paper and Scissors blocks. They found the right path by walking onto whichever symbol the previous symbol would beat. (e.g.. they were stood on a Rock at the start, so went onto Scissors)
Navigated the causeway very well, and through an eye-shield sequence into a forest clearing with a house nearby. Look out for an 'inverted' lens flare in the eye-shield sequence!
The lady next to the house was selling fresh flowers, and they bought some flowers with the silver. Asked her if she knew anything about the dungeon, she didn't but indicated where the exit was. In the next eye-shield sequence there were a LOT of wolf noises!
Into the outskirts of a village, and Sylvester Hands appeared, and noticed they had no weapons. But it timed out right here!
I'm surprised Challenge didn't delete Pickle saying 'bog off' to the viewers. And the Challenge announcer says that everyone in the series is out of work now...

One day you say "Enter Stranger" and big goblin comes in!
