Kathy finally turned to Erik for a coalition, and he accepted. They listed their suspects and realized that Stephen and Michael were at the top of both of their lists, which gives them a lot in common with the people on our forums. On the second quiz, Kathy and Erik each only got one question right, causing a tie with Stephen, but their faster times saved them from execution. Frederique comments that she can't believe that it was a three-way tie. Kathy and Erik then remembered that Michael refused to jump off the cliff, and he became their prime suspect. On the third quiz, Kathy tied with Corbin for lowest score, but again, her faster time saved her. Ahmad voice-overs that one of Kathy's strategies was always to be the fastest person to take the quiz, and she was in fact the fastest every time. Once Corbin was executed, Kathy and Erik were sure that Michael was The Mole, so they concentrated their efforts on convincing Frederique that Erik was The Mole. We see Erik giving up his exemption, and Kathy telling Frederique that it's possible Erik is still The Mole, because The Mole might not always keep money from the pot in order to divert suspicion. Frederique played along. Frederique dies laughing at herself. Kathy and Erik were screwed when Michael was executed. In an interview, Kathy says she has no idea how Michael got executed, because she answered every question as if he were The Mole. In an interview, Erik puts his head in his hands and says he's screwed. Ahmad reveals that if Erik didn't have an exemption, he would have been executed instead of Michael because he had the lowest score. Michael groans and Erik laughs.
Ahmad voice-overs that after Michael was executed, the coalition between Erik and Kathy ended, and they each wondered if they had been in a coalition with The Mole. In an interview, Kathy says that after each quiz, she went back to her room and wrote down as many questions as she could remember. She realized that she inadvertently threw five answers to Frederique and lucked out by staying in the game. Kathy is sure that she was only in because of her times on the quiz. Ahmad voice-overs that Kathy tried to make herself look suspicious in the final two games to confuse Erik. Her questionnaire answers were designed to sabotage the game and look Mole-ish, but she didn't actively try to sabotage the last game. Ahmad voice-over, "Her lack of athletic ability proved useful in conjuring up more suspicion." In an interview, Kathy says she's constantly throwing challenges because she's not athletic, and adds, "I like the nice dinners. Those are nice." Ahmad voice-overs that although Kathy was convincing, Erik didn't buy it, and he knew Frederique was The Mole, so it came down to the final quiz. Ahmad voice-overs that Erik played with heart and determination and single-handedly added $99,000 to the pot. But it was Kathy's observations, detailed note-taking, and a little luck that made her the winner. Ahmad voice-overs that Kathy beat Erik by three questions on the final quiz.
