We may have lost Alex, but the show must go on. Alex wouldn’t want it any other way. Please, let’s remember him over the next few weeks of banked episodes, and then afford him the same respect to his successors that we afforded Alex when he replaced Art Fleming in 1984.

More information about Final Jeopardy: (The following write-up is original content and is copyright 2020 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
Considered the most sacred mantra in many forms of Buddhism, “om” is a contraction of a-u-m, which represents many important triads: the three worlds (the earth, atmosphere, and heaven) and three sacred Vedic scriptures (Rigveda, Yajurveda, and Samaveda) are two examples. It is also used at the beginning and end of Hindu prayers, chants, and meditation.
