Just as Joel goes from -$200 to $800, we take our first break as Cindy barely leads Jacob $3,400-$3,200. Once the next played topic of 3-Named Authors' cleaned out, the Daily Double belongs to the champ & he has a $1K lead over Cindy, $4,600-$3,600; Joel's currently $1,200 to the good. Jacob wagers $2.5K & the lead on this answer:
Her final resting place's a Missouri cemetery where she shares a headstone w/ husband Almanzo.
"Who is Willa Cather?" was wrong; she was actually Laura Ingalls Wilder & the champ's back in second at $2,100. Cindy's ahead after this J! Round, $4,200-$3,700, while Joel gets the third-place advantage at the start of Double J! w/ six pictures of Franklin.

The $1,600 American Nickname has a DD lurking for Cindy & she has the lead again w/ $6,600, this time by $1,300 over Jacob; Joel's isn't too far behind either of them w/ $3,800. To add $1,600 to her score or be back behind the champ by $300:
The Department of State & an area of Washington, D.C. are nicknamed this.
"What is Embassy Row?"...also the name of Michael Davies' production company, incorrect; the right name was Foggy Bottom & she's dipped to the $5K level. Joel rounds out the DDs w/ the $1,600 Weather History screen & $5,400; Cindy has $7,800 & Jacob's back at the top to the tune of $9,700. Joel goes for an additional $3K w/ this:
In 1944, bombers at high altitude were speedily propelled forward-- what's now called this 2-word phenomenon.
"What is a jet stream?"...is indeed right to put him in the middle of this pack at $8,400.

This play that came to Broadway in 2005's set in the Autumn of 1964 at St. Nicholas Church School in The Bronx.
Cindy Hager doesn't have anything, so she gives up $3,901. Joel Pool doesn't feel sure about "What Doubt"...even though he left out the "is" part of his final Q, he's right to nearly double to $16,700. Jacob Silverman quickly wrote..."What is The History Boys?", costing him $5,200 and the title & sending him back to where he came from w/ $37,998.
