The guests step aside and vote Joey and Andrea. Joey gives the talisman to the guardian and they are permitted access. In order for them to reach the Ice Queen, Joey and Andrea must solves three riddles to get three keys, to be given the Unquenchable Fire. The two must then choose one of their friends to betray. They decide that Alex and Tyler have proven themselves already and set their tiles aside. The two are left with Gabbie and Tana.

Tana pleads for her life, but the guardian slices into her stomach with his sword and she falls to the ground and dies. Alex, Tyler, and Gabbie were not pleased by this occurrence.
