Team Guido is first to the roadblock. (Damn 'em.) The clue about the roadblock (meant to guide you in deciding who should do it) says, "Not for anyone who is afraid of the dark." Bill and Joe read the clue, and Bill says, "I don't care [who does it]." Joe hesitates as if he doesn't care, but then he emphatically calls out, "You do it!" Heh. That's all right, Joe, I don't like the dark either. Nancy and Emily are second to arrive. They have a little trouble deciding who should do it, but Emily eventually takes it on. This is one of our first good views of the really unfortunate cornrows Emily has in her hair -- well, they're kinda too thick to be cornrows, so maybe I should just say "braids." However I refer to them, they're not working for her. When Emily says she'll do the task, Nancy has a really funny moment of grinning and mouthing "thank you," because you know what? She didn't want to go down in the caverns. Heh. She can huddle with Joe.
Emily lights her torch, and Joe points, saying, "Billy went that way. That's clockwise." "Billy"? Aww. Okay, that's cute. Once Emily has wandered off, Mom yells her encouragement. "Come on, you can do it!" Emily, meanwhile, finds her torch cumbersome and kinda scary, what with all the fire and all. A voice, which I think is Joe's, yells out, "The first circle inside the big concentric circle!" Miss Alli's Mom, who happens to teach math, agrees with me that there's no such thing as "a big concentric circle," because "concentric circles" are by definition plural, but that's neither here nor there. Bill finds the swords, which are hidden behind a sort of a big iron gate. The choices with the gate seem to be either to climb over it, or to use a long pole to pull a sword toward you and then weasel it between the bars.
