Amy says Horn - Richard (Series 1). Let's see what that scores her...

Image

Without the horn to bring down the Wall of Jericho, Richard came to a dead end at the very end of Series 1, and the production team had to wait a whole year to show off their fabulous brick-removing special effects! Amy, you ALSO also score 4 points!

ROSEY
Answer 1 - 4
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

ANNIE
Answer 1 - 4
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

AMY
Answer 1 - 4
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

Let's take a look at the whole board:

Image

Yes, there are far too many 4s on there! Maeve was the killer answer, while Richard from Series 8 (the only Richard not chosen by our contestants!) would have given someone a clear lead.

We're now going to come back down the line and try to find out which two contestants will make it through to the head-to-head - let's just hope there'll be something between the three of them at the end of the round, unlike now!

Here is the board for the second pass:

Image

Amy, you have the pick of the board. Please nominate your second fatally rejected clue object and corresponding dead dungeoneer.

I choose Fireball Brandy: Rebecca (Series 8)
I am merely a young girl's shadow...nothing more...nothing less...

Amy says Fireball Brandy - Rebecca (Series 8 ). Let's see what that scores her...

Image

That scores Amy only 2 points, bringing her total to 6. Rebecca's was the last ever Knightmare death; miremen were the cause.

ROSEY
Answer 1 - 4
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

ANNIE
Answer 1 - 4
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

AMY
Answer 1 - 4
Answer 2 - 2
TOTAL - 6

Annie, you have five answers left to choose from. Please nominate your second fatally rejected clue object and corresponding dead dungeoneer.

Oh man, I think I might lose this round - I have *no* idea which one to pick! They all seem like memorable deaths to me...

I'll try wax crayon - Kelly (Series 3).

Annie says Wax Crayon - Kelly (Series 3). Let's see what that scores her...

Image

Yes, it's another 4, bringing Annie's total to 8. Without the wax crayon to create/draw/reveal a wellway to the second level, Kelly was left to the mercy of Mr Grimwold - and he didn't have any!

ROSEY
Answer 1 - 4
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

ANNIE
Answer 1 - 4
Answer 2 - 4
TOTAL - 8

AMY
Answer 1 - 4
Answer 2 - 2
TOTAL - 6

Rosey, you have four answers left to choose from. Please nominate your second fatally rejected clue object and corresponding dead dungeoneer. If you score 3 or less, you will be joining Amy in the head-to-head. If you score 4 (God help us!) then you'll be in a tiebreak situation with Annie. If you score 5 or more, Annie will be in the head-to-head with Amy.

Rosey says Nightsight - Nicola (Series 7). Let's see what that scores her...

Image

This brings Rosey's total to 6. Nicola's death was rather messy and very bad for the paperwork, but the Nightsight (or lack of it!) was the crucial factor. Now, let's take a look at the whole board:

Image

This is how the scoreboard looks at the end of Round 2:

ROSEY
Answer 1 - 4
Answer 2 - 2
TOTAL - 6

ANNIE
Answer 1 - 4
Answer 2 - 4
TOTAL - 8


AMY
Answer 1 - 4
Answer 2 - 2
TOTAL - 6

Bad luck, Annie - you're the one who's leaving us. Thanks for playing, and you'll always have that pointless answer to feel proud of! For Rosey and Amy, the head-to-head looms, and will soon follow...

ROUND 3 - HEAD-TO-HEAD

Rosey and Amy - whichever one of you wins the best of three questions will be our Knightmare Pointless champion. Remember, I can only accept your first answer, so think carefully before you post.

We gave 8 people 100 seconds to name...

CHARACTERS WHO CAN BE SEEN THROUGH LORD FEAR'S POOL OF VERACITY IN SERIES 6/7

So that's any character whose image appeared in Lord Fear's pool at some point during Series 6 and/or 7. As our two remaining players have scored the same number of points during the show so far, I'm doing this as a first-come, first-served question - i.e. whichever one of you sees this post first can give your answer straightaway!

...Two?!? I thought everyone would remember the advisors calling "NICOLA?" as she died! There's no way I would have chosen that one, so I was definitely doomed!

Ah well, good luck to the remaining players. :)

Rosey's answer is Treguard. Amy, what is yours?

Rosey says Treguard. Let's see what that scores her...

Image

Treguard appeared in Lord Fear's pool at the very end of the first episode of Series 6, to give his arch-enemy the following message: "Until time turns again, you may not harass them."

Amy says Raptor. Let's see what that scores her...

Image

Raptor's only Pool of Veracity appearance was during the first episode of Series 7.

Two excellent answers there - Rosey just pips it and therefore leads the head-to-head 1-0, but there was only one answer that scored less than either of those. Let's take a look at the whole board:

LISSARD - 5
SYLVESTER HANDS - 5
GREYSTAGG - 4
JULIUS SCARAMONGER - 4
SKARKILL - 4
CAPTAIN NEMANOR - 3
HORDRISS - 3
RAPTOR - 3
TREGUARD - 2
GRIMALDINE - 1

Grimaldine was the answer you wanted, Amy, but you get to go first on the next question, so let's see what you can do. We gave 8 people 100 seconds to name...

MERLIN'S CAST SPELLS

So that's any named piece of Merlin's magic that was spellcast on-screen, either by a team or by Merlin himself... or both! Amy, it's over to you.
