DON'T CRY FOR ME, ARGENTINA: Or so the Mole players might sing. As usual for a finale, there was one dynamite challenge (this one involving a giant clock and time zones that led the players to clues that enabled them to defuse a bomb), though the second challenge was rather pointless--if the first place player has sole control over the outcome, why would anyone other than that first place player care? Shouldn't it have been a choice between the dossier and $25K for each player who completed their part of the mission in a set period of time? My money's on Mark as the Mole, though I'm not ruling out Craig. Nicole's behavior seems too obviously "moleish" for her to be the sensible pick, and Craig's gotten an underdog/hero edit from the beginning. Jon Kelley's still no Anderson Cooper, but this has been an adequate summer diversion.
