Fortunately I paused the episode before I conked out.......
Christa polled the crew for who'd they think should be put up. The overwhelming responses: Azmyth for being one of the strongest competitors, and Kendra for being one of the weakest competitors. Jay had a very devilish idea that would help get rid of Kendra, and help Christa make extra money: Give her only 2,500 and say that the other 10,000 will be used to buy the Royal Pardon off of her, then don't bid at all! It's a very sneaky idea, and Christa sold Kendra the story. Now, whether Christa actually bid on the Pardon or not........ we'll find out.
The black spots were Azmyth and Kendra officially. At Pirate's Court, Azmyth with a combination "Yes, I'm the strongest/I love you guys" speech. Kendra has a long-winded, prepared story-style speech.
The winner of the final Royal Pardon is Christa with a bid of $10,000 (she actually went through with the story, and Jay hangs his head......), of course she didn't need it
By a vote of 5-0, Azmyth is set adrift! From being Captain to being cut adrift all in one episode, how the mighty have fallen.....
Apparently the secret to watching these things is to start it up, then pause it, and go do something else (which could include taking a nap...) and lo and behold the thing works more like a TV episode!
