It is no surprise that the show finds itself in this position. The producers are their own worst enemy. First, they bring in a host devoid of personality and then they give us a cast that is equally forgettable. I have to believe that the casting people forgot rule number one... there must be balance between those you loathe and those you love, and rule number two. the cast must fit together in a way that makes people want to watch (the sum being greater than the parts) [all my opinion, of course]
ok so i still think clay is the mole, but mark is in a close 2nd place... clay's shirt matched the napkins on the table at the end and that's a good enough reason for me! you know the producers told him it was going to be yellow so he could match them and look nice!

I seriously doubt he had ever heard of color matching of complimentary colors.
As KT knows, I called the elimination from the edit in real time (before it was revealed.) This week it was the wine scene that drew my immediate suspicion. They weighed too heavily on it and I knew right away it was a significant plot point. They showed Clay offering Alex his glass of wine at dinner and did a quick zoom on the glass, cut to Alex's empty glass, cut back to Clay, cut back to Alex who now had a full glass (but surprisingly it was Red wine and not what Clay offered.) Right away I said, "Alex is going home and they will use this to show how the mole made it happen" - in the final episode. Clay is the mole!?? Then it hit me. It might have been Clay that offered the wine to Alex, but it wasn't his idea. Nope... Just a few scenes before Mark told Clay, "I am going to get Alex a second bottle of wine to hurt his chances on the quiz." The mole strikes again through the power of suggestion. How many times has Mark pulled off this neat trick so far this season? It seems like every episode he convinces someone of something.

[/quote] You typed out everything I was thinking..I'm glad you did it because I didn't wanna spend all that time typing. Ever since dinner, I knew that Alex was going home. He already looked slightly inebriated and Mark's plan went through smoothly. It's amazing the way he singled out one person and sent them home. I wonder why no one notices his "suggestions". It's super obvious. And Clay in becoming the Mark's puppet; he trust Mark so much that he just goes along with everything, it's so weird.

[/quote] yeah that was pretty amazing to me how you called the elimination. i think mark is a good possibility and i agree that this show pointed to him being the mole but i'm still not giving in. i'm going to hold out for at least another episode and say clay is the mole.

Good to know I can count on you to save me... Edit: Haha... nice job changing the smile to a frown...
re: tonight's episode [spoiler]im glad Nicole didn't leave...honestly its more interesting with her there. at first i was like "ok, if she DOES get executed, they wouldnt have told us that via the edit." but then i was like "OR shes the mole and they want us to think that way....." hmmm Clay was kinda boring...idk. too bad, so sad.[/spoiler]
On my way to work tonight, I realized that I was going to miss tonight's episode... and that I missed last week's episode... and that I'm going to miss next week's episode. Truth be told, I don't really care how this plays out - there's no one left that I really like... I'm pretty sure Bacchus called it from early on and Mark is The Mole and I feel like we're being set up for a Nicole/Craig win... It's kinda sad - I was so excited for this show to come back, but with this season, just the mix of everything did not work out so well. Too bad ABC isn't gonna give it another chance :(
[quote=killer_tofu;22429]Good to know I can count on you to save me... [/quote] My teeth are really sharp like that, so watch out! ;) [quote]Truth be told, I don't really care how this plays out - there's no one left that I really like...[/quote]I missed last night's episode as well (although KT gave me the play by play.) From the beginning it was clear that this was not a very likable cast and with the loss of Clay there isn't much mystery left at this point either... Still, I'll try to watch it to conclusion. I guess I have to pull for Craig as I can not in good conscience actually want Nicole or Paul to win!
I'm not gonna lie...i want Nicole for the win. That is...if she isnt the mole...... hahaha i'm sure mark IS the mole....but for competition's sake and a little friendly "ha ha we told you so" action....i kind of want him to LOSE so that we can all get on Bacchus's case lol

After last nights episode I want Nicole to win. Either her or Paul. I definitely would not like to see Craig win and Mark has to be the Mole. Paul seems to want this too much to be the Mole. zi sense that he will get eliminated in this upcoming episode.

I still believe that Mark is the Mole and I hated Craig ever since Episode 5 when he failed the Travelers' Mission. It was okay that we did what he had to do for an exemption, but I hated that he was so smug about it.

Then Mark came in and made everyone quit, lol.
