After throwing up in my mouth slightly at the betting from yesterday’s Final, Andy’s back — and feeling up to recapping again!

FIX THE CAR (NAME)
Catherine did very well in FIX THE CAR and jumped out to a lead because of it!
SCIENCE $600 had the Daily Double! Our champ was a steamroller when she found it; scores were:
Catherine bet $2,000. Her clue: An abnormal fear of water, it’s also another name for rabies. Her correct response put her at $8,000 and the show went to an early break!
Tod is currently touring the country doing an anti-bullying musical!
Catherine is a Lord of the Rings fan and she wants to visit New Zealand!
Coming out of the break, both Tod and Alan had better buzzer mojo! After 30, the scores:
DJ! round categories:
TEXAS, HOLD ‘EM
WHY DOES THAT SOUND FAMILIAR?
& THE CATEGORY OF GEOGRAPHY
GEOGRAPHY $800 had a Daily Double and Alan got to play it on the 2nd clue of the round (after getting the $400 clue)!
He bet $3,500. His clue: The greatest north-south distance of this South American country is 2,731 miles; east-west, 2,684. His correct response put him at $7,900!
Meanwhile, Catherine picked up no fewer than 3 of Tod’s negs!
Just after taking the lead, Alan found the final Daily Double under TEXAS, HOLD ‘EM $1600! Scores:
Alan bet just $1,000. His clue: In 1966 an appeals court reversed the murder conviction of this Dallas inmate, but he died in January 1967. His correct response put him at $16,900 — but gave Catherine an opening! Would she take it, with just a minute to play?
It came down to the final clue, and Catherine chose not to take a risk! Tsk tsk tsk!
