My parents make their first appearances of the season on tonight’s video. Will my dad make a fool of himself on the live broadcast?

Spoiler alert: he won’t!

Nate’s got his two opponents in a “crush” situation – both should just wager everything.

Sarah

Flamini (1x)

Nate

Ross

Bryn

Keating

9,600 14,600 8,300

I was pulling for Nate to go bigger on that late Daily Double – 6,000 (half of his total) was my off-the-cuff instinct, although looking back I might have gone for a grand or two more.

What actually happened

Sarah Nate Bryn
9,600 14,600 8,300
9,595 4,700 2,500
5 19,300 5,800
min max
7,001* 4,601 4,999 6,301*

It didn’t matter, though – he got the sole solve and will return Monday. (Bryn suffered the same fate as my mother – she knew the miniseries, just not the right name.)

The Final Jeopardy! clue
