It's VAL's world... you're just playing in it, as nine contestants subject themselves to solitary confinement... and the tests of an all-knowing cyber-intelligence.

Escape from Valcatraz
February 27

On the last uplink of "Solitary", lasers and twisters pushed bodies to the limit, but they soon learned that life was a beach... and Tyler got to lay in it while the others unleashed their inner animal for a treatment. Todd was the first to quit, leaving the game permanently, but the treatment continues...

The pods, once more...

  2) Rommel Gargoles
Martial arts instructor
3) Kelsey Thorn
    6) Tyler Tongate
environmentalist/Solitary 2.0 runner up
7) Bea Hennington
high school teacher & missionary
  9) Liberty Freeman
Children's party entertainer who died three times

Twenty-six rounds in, and #7 Bea is sitting out, conserving energy. This means a penalty round of one banana... So far, she's eaten 12 bananas. Make that 13; that's the next round. #3 Kelsey has eaten 8. Meanwhile, #6 Tyler is monkeying around, enjoying his freedom.

Bea continues to sit out the grueling physical treatment. She and Kelsey will have to eat yet another banana... Kelsey can puke all she wants, but if she does, her body will have quit for her. And... there it goes. Reversal of fortune is an automatic DQ.

A few bananas later... and another one bites the dust as Liberty's bananas come back the wrong way.

Next round is... another THREE bananas... in three... two.. one-one-one-once again you've outlasted the others. TREATMENT ENDS.

Relief is short lived... because Solitary is about to feel like a life sentence, as the Solitarians are jailed inside of their jails.

Their first meal: a meal bar and a banana. Ba DUM. Tyler has no problem eating it.

The Solitarians have a brief moment to write a letter home, that they read to everyone watching. Bea spends most of the time beating herself up. Bea admits that she's only doing this to be on TV... well, ask for what you wanted... Get what you got.

TEST: Escape from Valcatraz

Twenty keys... only six locks. Bust out first... and you're out of the Treatment. It's time for a Prison Break. The keys on the floor are decoys. The six keys that will unlock freedom are hanging on hooks... and on a warden's outfit. As for the paper bag, the only keys inside... are cookies. Tyler's experience in Solitary is already paying dividends. Bea, on the other hand... is literally AND figuratively on the end of her rope. While Tyler and Kelsey are reeling in the keys, the others are just... reeling.

WINNER... #2.... plus 2... plus 2. TYLER wins immunity from the Treatment.

Next up, using 200 pieces of paper, the Solitarians have to fly paper planes through the octagon in their meal slot. Who lands the most planes will win peanuts... and two cold beers.

Everyone seems to be folding under the pressure... But Tyler is the first to pilot his way through the octagon with two. Kelsey scores one. Once VAL Air reaches its destination, she reveals that #6 TYLER has the best air control. He gets beer and peanuts. The ace in #6 is considering sharing his booty... Will he entertain offers? #2 Rommel has a plea... translated by VAL: "You're awesome and I bow to you for winning this event. Will you please share your penis with me?" Correction... "#2 wants your nuts".

Afterwards, we get into a round of "Project Podway", as the Solitarians make it work to design their own clothes out of Kraft paper.  VAL rewards their creativity with a tasty meal.... if these models can eat. The food hits the spot, but they may regret this meal once VAL reveals...

TREATMENT: Solitary In-VAL-tational

For every hole you shoot over par, you will have to do penalty spins. The first player to hit the red button will leave the course PERMANENTLY. And, of course, if there's a reversal of fortune, your body will have quit for you.

Hole #1... Five strokes. And Bea has a stroke of bad luck. She spins 10 times for 30 seconds. Call it a "penalty round... and round... and round."

Hole #2... Four strokes. And once again, #7 has a penalty coming. Fifteen spins, 30 seconds.

Hole #3... Par 5 with a full revolution. Bea finally makes one. And Kelsey's going for a spin.... as is Liberty.

Hole #4... Par 3, tunnel optional. And Bea spins 30 in 60.

We're interrupting with a few rounds... of rounds. Ten a piece. Then 15... Then 20... Then 25... Then 30... then 35... Then 40... Then 45... Then 50.

Hole #5... Par 3 with 10 spins in 30 seconds. And Bea and Rommel are spinning...

Hole #6... Hole in one. ... and that was a wash. Everyone rotates. And everything rotates. And one spit from #9 Liberty... means that she's is the NEXT person to leave Solitary. Liberty... Please evacuate your pod.

But the treatment continues...
