"Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress" is the 37th episode of Legends of the Hidden Temple.

Moat Crossing

Before each team was a bridge of floating rings. When Kirk gave the signal, the first player had to scramble across the floating rings to the other side of the moat. Once across, they then had to step off, signaling their partner to do the same. As always, when both players were across, they had to then run over and hit the gong.

Steps of Knowledge

Long ago an Englishman went to Egypt to study archaeology. That wise student of lost civilizations eventually became the great war hero Lawrence of Arabia. During World War I, he dressed up like an Arab and fought behind enemy lines. Legend has it, though, that dressing up like an Arab wasn't all his idea. One day, he and Hassid, his faithful Arab servant, saddled up their camels for a day trip to a nearby oasis. Halfway there, a sudden sandstorm came up, and they lost their way. When the dust settled, they were face-to-face with enemy troops.

"Relax, boss," said Hassid.

He whipped out a tablecloth from his saddle pack and threw it over Lawrence's head like a traditional Arab headdress.

"Keep your head down and nod a lot."

The soldiers didn't suspect a thing and let them go. Lawrence loved his new headgear so much that he wore it for the rest of the war.

Temple Games

Eye on the Nile (Obelisk)

When Kirk gave the signal, Angel and David had to start at the base, grab the thread, climb to the eye of the needle, drop it, climb back down, thread it through the eye on the floor, and repeat the process. The first player to thread both eyes or the player furthest along in 60 seconds won. Both players managed to thread the bottom eye once, but David threaded the top eye again at the last second, awarding him a half pendant of life.

Long-Tailed Turbans (Dragon Tunnel)

Crossing enemy lines when you're wearing a turban can be tough, especially when you have to tunnel under them. When Kirk gave the signal, Brittany and Candice had to burrow through the dragon tunnels as quickly as they can, and grab the turban tail at the other side, put it on their heads, and come back through the tunnel. Unfortunately, the turban has a long tail, so when either player returns to their starting side, she had to keep pulling their turban tail behind them. The first player to pull their turban all the way through the tunnel or the player furthest along in 60 seconds won. Candice managed to pull her turban tail all the way out with 14 seconds of spare time, awarding her a half pendant of life.

Egyptian Pyramids (Water Ramp)

Lawrence of Arabia originally came to Egypt to study the pyramids. Here, both teams had to reconstruct an ancient Egyptian pyramid. At the base of each pyramid were three huge blocks. The first player from each team had to sit with the block behind him/her, and when Kirk gave the signal, use their legs and push themselves up to the top of the pyramid then slide back down, touch their partner, signaling their turn to do the same. The first team with all three blocks at the top or the team furthest along in 60 seconds won. Neither team got all three of their blocks at the top, but the Green Monkeys managed to get two blocks at the top while the Red Jaguars had one, sending the Green Monkeys to the temple with 2 full pendants. The Red Jaguars didn't win any pendants.

Temple Run

Candice volunteered to go first, and she wasn't a terrible contestant. She started in the Cave of Sighs, where she immediately met the first Temple Guard. She was quick to hand over her Pendant, but spent a little while trying to get out of the room. The only way out, apparently, was up into the Room of the Royal Gongs, and from there, Candice started to speed up again. The door into the Treasury of Golden Orbs opened from the Observatory just as she started heading down the ladder, but she continued on and was taken out in the Room of Fallen Columns with 2:03 remaining.

Following his partner's path precisely, David quickly made it to the point of Candice's departure, then crawled from the Room of Fallen Columns into the Treasury of Golden Orbs, where he encountered the third Temple Guard with 1:21 to go. After a little trouble fitting a golden orb on the middle platform, David continued through without a moment of hesitation. He put the silver monkey together in a swift fifteen seconds, and from the Shrine, took the shortest path possible by going down into the Tomb of the Ancient Kings. He grabbed the Headdress in the next room with just under thirty seconds left and took off. When he got into the Pit of Despair, he used the indents in the walls rather than the ladder to climb out (the artifact itself, being a cloth, made that possible). Soon after, David reached the Temple Gate with Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress with two— not one, but two— seconds remaining. All in all, a very exciting episode and a solid win for a deserving team.
