Once she buys tres U's, she loses a turn w/ R. Second, Scott finds a $450 S but then gets nothing for calling the L. Third, Shasta calls a $2.5K B but then buys the sole bad vowel on the board (A). Returning to Danielle, she Bankrupts on the right side of the Million Dollar Wedge to lose her WC & $1,550. Next, Scott calls those C's for the gas card, buys the remaining vowels of three E's & captures a $900 K (although he nearly repeated the C) & a $600 D. Now we look...

Third for Danielle is the Bankrupt next to $3.5K, her second tonight. Fourth, Scott's subsequent findings are a $600 L, a set of A's, a $600 D, the I closing out the vowels & a $1K pair of P's, then he...

After that, Danielle picks up the green 1/2 KIA w/ two $500 L's, a $300 M & P before calling a Free PLAY dud of C & Bankrupting out next to top dollar again to lose out on the $15K automobile & $1,600 for good.
