Round 1: SAME LETTER
She gets the MDW right away w/ R, but LaTs out just as quick. Second, Emily calls up a $1,200 pair of T’s and the SL Bonus of four $600 H’s, but the LaT gets her too. Third, Kevin BANKRUPTs near TD. Lindsey next gets the same fate as the man, so there goes the sparkly green wedge. Emily then puts up a $1,400 pair of D’s…

Mystery Round: THINGS
Here goes Emily w/ the calling of three S’s for $1,500, a FP dud of I, three $900 T’s, and four O’s. But after $2,600 worth of quad N’s, she repeats said dud vowel. Kevin then puts in a $1,950 R trio…
_ R O T O N S
N _ _ T R O N S / &
_ _ _ _ T R O N S
…sure enough, he gets PROTONS, NEUTRONS & ELECTRONS.

Kevin: $1,950/Lindsey: $3K/Emily: $6K
PP/Express Round: PHRASE
T for trouble is how Kevin starts while he’s on the ticketmaster gift tag. Second, Lindsey spins her second LaT of the game. Third, Emily digs up four N’s for $3,600, a $600 S, three A’s, two $700 D’s, and two U’s, but the same normal BANKRUPT nails both her and Kevin, costing the girl $5,100. Lindsey next lights up a pair of Y’s for the 1/2 CAR near $600, a single E, and three R’s for the other 1/2 CAR. But after buying the leftover O, she says C for critical dud. Emily then SPINGLES for the $800 M…
