Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER
Brianna’s off to a bad start w/ a T while on the 1/2 CAR near the pink $600. Second, Drew has the same result w/ an R call. Third, Shermian calls up three N’s and sees under the MW near LaT…$$$. Her very next call of P, however, is no good. Brianna restarts w/ a $700 S, four E’s, three I’s to finish off the vowels, a $1K G, a $700 L, and a $1K D to leave only the V unrevealed…

PP/Express Round: FOOD & DRINK
Drew GOES ABOARD the EXPRESS right away after saying three T’s…but his next call of E (the only bad vowel of this puzzle) shoots him down. Second, Shermian runs into the MDW’s right side. Third in Brianna’s favor are a $900 H, three I’s, a $600 N, two F’s for the other 1/2 CAR, two U’s, three $700 R’s, an $800 G, and the other two good vowels. Following a $650 L…

Round 4: THINGS
He opens up w/ three $500 T’s, an E, two $5K H’s, two I’s, but then the BANKRUPT near TD to flush away $11K. Over to Shermian who lights up a $500 R, two $800 N’s, a $500 G, and the last vowel of A before we see…
_ T A R _ / I N / T H E
N I G H T / _ _ _
…but she blows the $2,350 solve w/ START IN THE RIGHT WAY, because that doesn’t fit the category. Brianna then uncovers a $2,400 S trio…
