"We won something!"
Trevor after Green's surprise victory.

House of Cards” is the ninth episode of Endurance.

OverviewEdit

The Green Team must defend itself against the powerful Blue-Red-Yellow alliance.

SummaryEdit

With the Orange team's departure leaving the Green team to fend for itself against the powerful Blue-Red-Yellow alliance, the final four teams competed in another Endurance Mission.

As the girls walked up to the Endurance Mission, "House of Cards", they were shocked to find their partners buried in the sand up to their necks with their heads hidden beneath buckets. Modeled after the impressive construction of the Great Wall of China and intended to honor the many thousands of brave men and women who constructed it, the girls had to build a tower on their partner's head using blocks and pudding. The first one to pile all the blocks on their partner's head and maintain balance would win both the Pyramid Piece left by the Orange team and the right to dole out the Samadhi.

In a huge shift of power, the Green team won their first mission and with the reward of the Samadhi and the Pyramid Piece, moved into third place with two pieces. Since the Blue team had sent Green to the Temple twice before, the recipient of the Samadhi was almost predetermined. It was announced officially at the Rock: the Blue team received the Samadhi (putting a huge smile on Lana's face) and would have to start the next Temple Mission 15 seconds after everyone else, a seemingly insurmountable handicap.
