I think it's the second to last one because in the commercial said, " It's the last episode before the season finale."
I am Buster1920 and this is my signature. I like the show Comedy Bang! Bang! and the podcast Harmontown These are my results in Sasuke Related Games: Sasuke Guessing Game IX (Sasuke 29) = 19th place with 55 points SMF SASUKE 1 #35= Spin Bridge Proto SASUKE 7 #32= Step Glider
I do enjoy Siberia. I think the early confusion of 'is it reality or scripted' really threw people off. Though I am concerned of how this will end, this season. What is in the woods, making tracks? If it's some alien thing I'm done.
Siberia hooked me just beause i cant aleep after ANW haha, but I keep feeling disappointed with how slow it moves. I guess they can't just show you the monster, but there seems to be a lot of time filler storylines I can't get into.
I'm SO f***ing pissed that they digested BOTH Finley and McGrath. I would LOVE to see McGrath's run because of his experience in Japan. I'm EVEN MORE pissed when they digested Finley EVEN after breaking Levi's Stage 2 Record from Sasuke 20! (HE HAD 41 SECONDS LEFT!) Travis Rosen made me feel better. It was so nice to see him get revenge on BOTH the BT and the MS. Can't wait to see him in Stage 3!
EDIT: One more thing pissed about... contestants gliding to DSL after clearing Hang Slider!
Proto Sasuke Results: Proto Sasuke 3 (#25) - Failed Rolling Escargot (1st Stage)
Sasuke 29 Preshow (#N/A) - Failed Rolling Escargot (1st Stage)
SMF Tournament 2013 (#87) - Failed Jump Hang Kai (1st Stage)
SMF vs. the World (#6) - Failed Spider Drop (1st Stage)
Well, after watching this episode, I'm a little torn about it all. I'm glad to see more passes, with so far half being rookies, but I'm scratching my head about 2 things for the stage.
1- The time for the stage, I don't know whether or not they were too lenient for giving a little more time or if it was the right amount. So far, only one of the clears was a close call, but everyone else had almost plenty of time to spare.
2- All of the knockouts that occurred from the Double Salmon Ladder. I was definitely disappointed at how much failed it, but I'm curious to see whether anything changed that made it harder or if it was just a fluke/nerves/mistakes that took a lot of them out.
All in all, I like what occurred, but still have a little reservation about what transpired.
I don't like ANW's Metal Spin. It's nothing like the original and the landing seems much harder than the jump and grab. Also, Andre De Las Rosas got jipped when he managed to hang on but the rope forced him into the water. He either should have fallen in or cleared it.
A few things I am wanting some feedback on, let me know if I'm just crazy:
1. I think the DSL rungs are slightly less angled then they have been in the past (LaFlair slipped off due to this it seemed), and the final rung is the same distance as the others rather then significantly higher.
2. The second to last obstacle (name slips my mind out of frustration) seems to have a smaller gap to jump to get to the chain.
3. The first obstacle is basically a bad joke.
Sorry for venting a bit. Despite my disappointment in the course I am actually looking for some good feedback to train accordingly.

I haven't seen the ep, nor was I there, but evidently the DSL notches were metal this year instead of wood which caused less traction. In my experience in Baltimore I say metal is fine for a normal SL but the DSL needs the wood, at least for the jump notches and the big gap... (although I understand the switch... did you see how f'd up the notches in ANW4 got?
