During the episode, viewers learned of any changes to the rules and format as they individually entered a challenge and then formed three teams of three men and three women, with the winning team forming the agency.

At the beginning of the episode, there are a few conversations around the house to remind viewers of certain players’ stakes, including an emotional phone call between Amanda Garcia and her young son Avonni, as well as Priscilla opening up about her bond with mom and how important it is she is in her life.
This week’s challenge is “Diamond Dash,” but before it starts, TJ Lavin reveals that the reality stars “no longer compete in pairs. ”The participants have to race through the forest to the first checkpoint, where they choose one of three tasks. When they have completed it, they will need to retrieve their gem and take it to the next stage, which are three platforms that determine who will advance on the three teams.
The challenge has some great moments from several of the contestants, starting with Nelson Thomas finishing first and arriving on the platform where he kneels and theatrically exclaims, “Challenge gods! Spies, Lies and Allies! ”Before placing his gem on the Sapphire platform. Ed Eason’s strategy is to wait and see who joins which team before finally making the Sapphire team with Nelson.
When CT Tamburello arrives it’s great to see everyone trip over themselves to convince him to go along, including Ed who thinks $ 20 might be enough to convince the four-time champ who just got $ 450,000 for ” Double Agents “took home. We also learn that Logan Sampedro may have sustained an injury as he says he had a pain in his leg while running.
When the dust has settled and all participants have arrived at the platforms, the teams are put together as follows:
TJ tells them these are the teams going into the future, but it’s unclear whether he means for the rest of the season or just for a while, although there are likely to be more upheavals with the number of twists and turns this season will.
The final checkpoint requires the teams to counterbalance and retrieve their last diamond, and the Emerald team wins the victory when TJ tells them they will start the new agency and be safe from elimination. He also reveals that the upcoming elimination will be female elimination day, meaning there will be no more pair eliminations.
The Emerald team has a pre-nomination meeting as they are the only ones who have the voting rights for the performer they want to see into the cave while the women on the other two teams have to present their case. Devin says he wants to pick the strongest woman from the weakest team, Priscilla on Team Ruby, while Josh surprisingly wants to bet on Ashley.
Nany then interferes and agrees with Josh that Ashley “damned” everyone on Team Emerald. It’s a very surprising claim because, aside from Ashley’s infamous theft on “Final Reckoning,” she has been very loyal to her friends and allies, but has been repeatedly referred to as underhanded. This season especially, we’ve seen a friendship grow between Ashley, Amanda, and Nany, but it seems like Nany is over the two-time champion.
A brief moment in conversation seems to reveal the real reason they are shooting Ashley, which is that they are afraid to see her in a finale. This is a similar theme from last season on Double Agents, when several of the cast shot at champions early on, threw in Wes Bergmann, and then found excuses of disbelief in their confessionals.
In this section of the episode we learn that Logan and Big T broke up because Logan wasn’t looking for anything serious, while Big T wanted more. Kyle also makes it very clear that he wants to move from Team Ruby to Team Emerald and says in a confessional how much he loves Ruby, adding:Ruby for life!… God, I wish I were on the Emerald team. ”The agency finally uses Priscilla and explains in their interviews that, since the rules are still not clear, they don’t want to make a big hit.
The elimination is called “Seek and Destroy” and it takes a lot of strength and endurance to dig up tires and then use a code to put the tires in the correct order. In the cave, TJ reveals that Priscilla will be the one to choose her opponent, which puts a lot of power in her hands and makes the losing teams practically powerless in the challenge of choosing which of the two eliminators to choose.
Priscilla takes a big step and chooses Ashley. She says if she is eliminated she would love to face a two-time champion. Ashley does a really strong performance and seems to rock her elimination demons into winning the matchup and sending Priscilla home. Many of the vets cheer her on and help her win by naming her color order.
It’s so strange to see people like Tori cheering and helping Ashley while they were all scheming to get her out and just arguing about how untrustworthy she is. It’s really sad to see Ashley say in her post-elimination interview how happy she is to finally be supported and encouraged by the veterans after being targeted for so many seasons while the vets at the agency see all the episodes Looking for her and saying they wanted her out. It will be interesting to see their reaction after the episode aired.
Hopefully we’ll see Priscilla on the show again; Despite a slow start, she showed that she is not afraid of big strides and made great confessions. The viewers then learn that the knockout winner can infiltrate any team, including the agency, which is very exciting and prevents any team from getting a stranglehold on the game.
Kyle has a great line when he says in his confessional, “Beautiful TJ! I think I know my next step! ”All in all, the episode was like the premiere of a whole new season with a different format and different rules and it looks like it’s going to be the second half of the season for some exciting and explosive confrontations Prepare moments.
“The Challenge: Spies, Lies and Allies” airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific Time on MTV.
