"Jeopardy!" 2/8

Don't forget that it's very likely that two out of tonight's three competitors will advance to the TT finals next week because of last night's FJ! shocker. And Alex's been wrong at least twice that it's the first time a triple-$0 tie has occurred in a tourney game.

Friday's Board At the Get-Go:
AFRICAN AMERICANS

MOVIES BY CAST
WEIRD SCIENCE
INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE LESSONS
BE PRODUCTIVE
WORK"ER"S

Nilai goes DDH at the $800 Weird Science screen...it hasn't been found yet, but he is in LGT w/ five G's to Leonard's $1,600 & Emily's $1,200. Shortly after the ads...Nilai finally gets it from the $600 African Americans box w/ $5,400; Leonard's doubled his first-half score to $3,200. The wager from Nilai will be $2K:

Crispus Attucks, called the first American to die for independence, was killed in this 1770 incident.

"What is a Boston Massacre?"...good for $7,400! The score's up to $9,400 once the slate's been wiped clean; Leonard's $3,400 behind him.

LT (all unattempted): $2,800

DJ! Category List:
HISTORY IS HAPPENING
COMPLETE THE LYRIC
LET"S VISIT A MUSEUM
BOOKS & AUTHORS
WHAT TO WEAR?
STARTS WITH...

Emily's off to a decent start by being right on the first three clues tied to Books & Authors & then triggers a DD. She also goes for another $2K:

John Green riffed on a line from Julius Caesar for the title of this novel about two teens w/ cancer who fall in love.

"What is The Fault in Our Stars?"...that turns her $3,600 into $5,600 & she then completes the SWEEP for $7,600 total. The last DD this week is...intercepted by Nilai as Let's Visit a Museum begins w/ the $1,600 answer being chosen; he has $14,200 & is trailing Emily for first place by $4,200; Leonard's still in it w/ $10,800. Nilai makes it three DDs worth $2K in a row. Here's the answer for this last one:

The Prado in this country's home to one of the world's finest art collections.

"What is Spain?"...right!

DJ! LT (all unattempted): $2,800

Scores Heading Into Final:
Leonard: $15,200
Emily: $18,400
Nilai: $16,200

CORYAT SCORES:
Leonard: $15,200
Emily: $18K
Nilai: $14,400

Remember, the next Teen Online Test's this Wed.

FJ! SUBJECT: U.S. Government.

Recently in the news, this agency traces its origins to an 1803 act helping Portsmouth, NH after a fire.

LEONARD: "What is FEMA" ($15K) = $30,200
NILAI: SAME AS HIM ($14,200) = $30,400
EMILY: SAME AS THE BOYS ($6K) = $24,400- BOTH BOYS TAKE LAST TWO SPOTS IN THE FINALS
