Okay, this was pretty exciting. Graham takes the remaining four out for a scavenger hunt around Seattle. Much like the Duck episode a week ago (I mean, months ago), we get to sample more of the local flavor that hosts Penny Arcade’s offices. Also, every weekend should be a 3-day weekend if it means getting to Strip Search sooner.
Paired off as Maki/Lexxy and Abby/Katie, the teams had to wander around downtown Seattle and sketch out various landmarks based on clues given by the staff. I sympathized most with Maki since I remember when an hour marching around didn’t make me want to die. (Marching around E3 in a few weeks myself? Hmm!) I almost wish they’d been given a little more time (say, 90 minutes) to complete their quest, but I realize they have a full afternoon ahead of them. Of particular note: Graham seems to have really opened up as a person over the course of the show. I watched the pilot again the other day and he was stiff as a bored. Now? Conversational as hell. Good on ya!
Signing contracts next episode? Important, but maaaan does that sound like a lame watch. We will see!
