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.

In the final script to 1975’s famed comedy classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the movie ends (spoiler alert!) with the Grail unfound and police intervention, with the police breaking the camera. Conceived between the third and fourth series of the famed sketch comedy series, the film was later used by Eric Idle as the basis for the musical Spamalot.

- Kudos to Ryan for his bet on the final Daily Double. Even had he been incorrect, he would have still been guaranteed a runaway. (In fact, $6,000 was nearly at the upper bound of potential bets that would have still guaranteed his runaway.)
- Ryan’s Final Jeopardy! bet of $523 was revealed to be his father’s birthday. (Yes, Alex made a James Holzhauer reference.)
