"Who is Ernest Hemingway?"...write up another grand for his bank, TPTB. He concludes the first half of the J! Rd. w/ $1,400; Alexander's on the board w/ six Benjamins & Emma's sitting w/ $3,600. They run out of time on the middle three Jewelry clues.

Frederick just discovered another DD on the $1600 "B" clue & has $4,600 in his till; Emma has $6,200 in hers & Alexander's in 1st w/ $10,200 (after nearly sweeping The Balkans). Frederick decides to let it ride on this:

A governor's failure to stop Indian raids prompted this 1676 rebellion led by a VA planter.

For $9,200...he has no idea- that was the Bacon's Rebellion. The other challenger lands the 3rd one on the $2K Contronym & needs to give a correct response to this one, since she has $9,400 to Alexander's $17,400 & Frederick's $2K. Emma's $5K clue is:

To ask for professional advice, or to give it.

"What is to dole?" is absolutely not right- the term was "consult".

John lands a DD two clues into The Team, The Team, The Team & this match; he'll try for $1,200.

The athletic teams of this New England school founded in 1861 are called The Engineers.

"What is MIT?"...got it. Everybody's separated by $400 at the halftime commercial break, w/ Sarah the new leader at $2,800; John's in 3rd for the time now w/ $2K.

O CAPTAIN! MY LITERATURE CAPTAIN!
ARCHAEOLOGY (because tomorrow's International Archaeology Day)

Alexander tries DDH on the $800 Occupational Last Name to start...as does John right after...John finds one on the $1200 clue underneath O Captain! My Literature Captain! w/ six thou; he's $200 off of Alexander for 2nd & the clue's face value away from leader Sarah. This is a clue to hopefully add $4K for John & put him in front:

He "went content to the crocodile"; instead of "Bad form", his last words should've been "Here's seconds!".

"Who is Captain Hook?"...reeled in the right response! At the end of 14 Letters or More is Sarah's DD & she has $8,400, but only $200 more than Alexander for 2nd; leader John stands at $11,600. $2,400's her gamble.

In psychology, this means to separate conflicting feelings as if into different boxes in order to cope.

"What is compartmentalize?"...she got the correct word. The beeps of time wail on:

Occupational Last Names: $400
Animals of the Amazon: $1600
O Captain! My Literature Captain!: $400
Archaeology: $1200

SOLE ATTEMPTED TS: $1,600 (14 Letters or More)

ALEVE FJ! C #25: COATS OF ARMS

This country's coat of arms features a palm tree & a 19th C. American sailing ship.

J: "What is the Bahamas?" ($4400) = $5,600
A: "What is marshall islands?" (seven grand) = $6K
S: "What is the Philippines?" (Correct: What is Liberia?)(13 grand) = $1,400
