Pirate Master episode 3 detailed Expedition spoilers/ speculation
    The new episode brings with it exciting new developments: a boat race to shore, a race across the land, one crew slowing the other down by sabotage early on, and then coasting to victory as they retrieve a soggy treasure chest. If this sounds familiar, well, tough. (The sabotage idea was cute once, and certainly fits the concept of piracy, but doesn't lend much to dramatic pursuits).

   This week, in a seven-on-seven matchup, the crews seem to mix it up a bit on the way to shore. That about covers the excitement on that leg.

    From there, the race begins across land to the treasure site. The red crew must have a lead, because we see the black crew getting the brunt of the sabotage. Although it looks like the two crews are relatively evenly matched up to that point.

    The bulk of the rest of the challenge appears to be a race along a river. Further clues (naturally, in more fake skulls) are retrieved along the way. By the time of the shot of Christa and Azmyth, it appears the two crews may be on different sides of the river from each other.

   With a now-insurmountable lead, the red crew apparently saunters over to the treasure, and retrieves it. Apparently from a waterfall area? In the shot of the treasure being dumped back aboard ship, Azmyth, Nessa and Jay are visible in the background, confirming the (already obvious) red victory.

    Who wins? Um, looks like the red crew does. Assuming that's actually the end of this specific challenge, and not some other one. Luckily, if we're wrong, nobody's watching the show anyway. So none shall be the wiser.
