The story so far! Shubham (as "Sasha") was left to block one of his "teammates" - meaning that "Bruno" (Billie-Jean) was the next to go home. Meanwhile, Marvin's arm gave him a date with "Tamira" (Tasia), whom he declared his queen... and we swear he did the same with Raven.

Before the dust settles on "Bruno's" elimination, we get a new competitor...
- Oliver Twixt (26; queer rap artist from Atlanta; playing as himself)

One thing he didn't plan on? "Tamira" and Raven comparing notes the next day. Marvin makes it clear that his plan is to play both women to keep him safe. I guess he didn't count on both of them talking to each other.

GLAM PARTY: The players go head-to-head in a trivia showdown to get to know each other and perhaps form new alliances.

As we wrap up the episode, Sam, "Tamira" and Raven compare notes... and Tom calls Marvin out on being an F-boy. How will this affect the upcoming ranking? Stay tuned...

New episodes of "The Circle" are available every Wednesday on Netflix. Another recap follows tomorrow.

The Mole Premiere
by Chris Wolvie
bird, new, square, twitter icon @ChrisWolvie

Netflix: season 1 available
Host: Alex Wagner
Official WebsiteFacebook
 

MOLE: noun
a spy (a double agent) who establishes a cover long before beginning espionage

In early 2001, an interesting reality series started with these words.  It was the setting for a show where a number of contestants were sent to an exotic locale to complete different missions and earn money for a pot which, in the end, only one would win.

But one person didn't NEED the money.  That person had been paid by the network to sabotage the missions - subtly, of course - to PREVENT the pot from getting bigger and, in some cases, even REMOVE money from it.

This was THE MOLE.  And it was up to the others to find out who they were...before more money slipped through their fingers.

Now, over two decades since it began in the US and 14 years since the attempt to revive it flopped, Netflix has brought it back.  And thousands upon thousands of dollars are available to the person who can figure out one important question:

WHO IS THE MOLE?

It starts with twelve ordinary Americans each telling an interviewer that they, in fact, are NOT The Mole.  But, of course, one is lying through their teeth.  Is it...

CASEY, a COVID nurse
KESI, a computer analyst
JACOB, a firefighter
OSEI, a real estate broker
JOI, a commercial pilot
AVORI, a professional gamer
PRANAV, a law student
GREG, a marketing consultant
SAMARA, a psychology student
DOM, a warehouse worker
WILLIAM, a brand manager
SANDY, a sales manager

We now go to the Daintree Rainforest (the world's oldest) in northern Australia (a country that had three seasons of their own version between 2000 and 2013) where the dozen are trying to find a downed plane in the middle of the jungle given basic instructions.  They eventually run into each other en route.  Joi, Osei and Avori find it first and Avori notices "795 W Sexton" scratched under the wing,  They're joined by the others to try to figure it out and how to enter the plane when host Alex Wagner of MSNBC walks in and greets them...and introduces them to...

=====================================
MISSION 1: CARGO RETRIEVAL
DETAILS: In the jungle are three pieces of cargo apparently "lost" before the plane "crashed".  The players need to go into the jungle and find each piece.  Once retrieved, they are to be returned to the plane and kept safe until morning.
CLUES: One is suspended "UP HIGH" in the trees, one is buried "DOWN LOW" underground and one is submerged "UNDERWATER".  Everything needed to find and salvage the cargo is inside the plane (including paper maps).
TIME LIMIT: One hour to salvage and return to the plane.  The cases must be protected all night until Alex's people come to pick them up.
POT REWARD: $5000 for each salvaged piece returned to the plane within the time limit and then brought with them when they are picked up.
=====================================

At least Jacob asked Alex for the key to the plane before she left...and Alex indeed had it.  They split into three groups: William, Dom, Kesi and Avori to get the one in the trees; Samara, Joi, Sandy and Osei to get the buried one; Jacob, Greg, Casey and Pranav for the underwater one.  They unlock the plane, grab the bags for each piece of cargo, get the maps and head out.

UNDERWATER: Pranav took the map right away and leads the way to a sandy beach.  Inside their bag are water shoes...but ALSO a big, red, envelope with a clue.  But opening the clue would cost $2500, meaning that, if they RETRIEVE the cargo with the help of that clue, it's only worth $2500.  They decide to wait on as they wade into the waters.  Greg seemed distracted and Pranav seemed to be a bit TOO thorough in his search.  As time ticks away, they decide to open the clue...and all it says is a crowbar in the drawer of the crate to be found can open the crate for the cargo.  But when they go back out, they find it amid the logs.  They use the crowbar to get the cargo case out and bring it back to the plane in time.

UP HIGH: William, who doesn't know how to read a map, takes the map from Dom and, five minutes late, they arrive at the tree the cargo is hanging from.  Around the tree is a rope-and-pulley system and their bags are full of rappelling equipment and the red clue.  They decide not to open it.  Good thing Avori is a climber in her free time.  She gets pulled up and Kesi pulls her over to the cargo, but she's wondering if she needs to untie the knots on the top.  Kesi goes up and helps matters, releasing the suitcase so they can hustle back.

DOWN LOW: Joi, as she expected, was put in charge of navigation.  But the first time they get lost made the other weary for her.  With thirty minutes to go, they are WAY off course.  With ten minutes to go, they are way, WAY off course.  This gets the gang wondering about Joi...and Osei is suspicious of EVERYONE.  They kept looking and looking until time expires and they return with nothing.  When they get back, they're berated for not even opening the bag.

Once everyone is back, Dom quickly takes control to set up a camp to protect the plane and the cargo overnight.  As they gather 'round the campfire, they ask questions about each other, feeling each other out and trying to get clues about who The Mole is.  One by one, they hit the sack...

...and, the next morning, they wake groggy.  Knowing they were to be picked up with the cargo, Dom goes to the plane...and finds the $5000 suitcase gone!  Fingers are pointed, but Will has ideas who it WASN'T.  They decide to spread out and look for the case...but they seem to come up empty.  Suddenly, two copters arrive and pick them up.

As they enjoy the view of the jungle, they see a large house in the middle of the jungle.  This is Mole HQ for the players.  The twelve disembark and join Alex, handing the $2500 case over.  After explaining what happened in their mission, Alex shows footage of SOMEONE taking the case.  The face was obscured and it was hard to tell if it was male or female (though the hair part on top of the head was shown pretty well.  But another camera shows...that it's WILL!  Dom is heartbroken, thinking that a bro-mance was happening between the two.

But Will had an explanation.  When they took the tarp out of the plane to make camp, he saw a note saying "SECRET MISSION: For your eyes only.  Open and read alone."   The note inside said, "If you can steal one of the cases, it will DOUBLE the value of the case."  Alex said that, if someone found Will out, the case would be worth zero.  As it is, he wasn't and the case was doubled to $10,000!

=====================================
MISSION 1 COMPLETE
EARNED: $15,000
PENALTY: $2500
TOTAL POT: $12,500
=====================================

Joi isn't convinced that Will isn't The Mole, though.  Everyone still has suspicions.  But they better get their facts straight because, after dinner and drinks, it's time for...

=====================================
THE QUIZ - 20 questions about The Mole; the one who answers the least correctly will be EXECUTED!
Among the questions:
Is The Mole currently married? (Yes/No)
Did The Mole's group make it back to the plane with a red case? (Yes/No)
What color shoes is The Mole wearing tonight (Full black/Full white/Other)
Is The Mole an only child? (Yes/No)
What color are The Mole's eyes? (Hazel/Blue/Green/Brown/Other)
WHO IS THE MOLE?
=====================================

EXECUTION

The players return to the dining room table, each with a mobile device in front of them.  Alex will send the results one person at a time and their phones will light up.  If the screen is green, they're safe.  If the screen is red, they're "dead" and must leave immediately.
GREG: GREEN
CASEY: GREEN
SANDY: GREEN
JACOB: GREEN
PRANAV: GREEN
KESI: GREEN
AVORI: GREEN
SAMARA: GREEN
DOM: GREEN
JOI: GREEN
OSEI: RED!

"Damn," is all Osei can say.  Alex escorts him to the car that drives him away from the villa and out of the game.

11 remain...10 still trying to figure out WHO IS THE MOLE?!

Season 1 of "The Mole" is available in its entirety on Netflix. Another recap follows next week.
