Knightmare Series 5 Team 4. Ben faces a long causeway of puzzles.

His final challenge is to create a path by solving a large floor puzzle of shapes and Roman numerals.

The calculations are not difficult, but the mechanics of the puzzle are slow, which drains life force.

As the team reaches halfway, the Shield appears inside a block of ice.
