We made it! The season five finale. Shannon, Kari, and Erica are each two-time winners, but two of their perfect streaks end today. After hammering into My Champion and nailing The ยฝ Point, we’ll start melting brains with an opposite songs game featuring backwards clips and all kinds of kooky wordplay. We’ll follow that up with confused descriptions from our pal Old Man MacTavish, who is mixing up TV and movie properties starring the same actor. And, you guessed it, it all comes down to the lightning round.

The Riddle

They're coming in peace from their alien hive

Perceiving of time like it's "Slaughterhouse-Five"

With circular language, her brain is rewired

So all of those flashbacks have not yet transpired


In the 2016 movie Arrival, based on Ted Chiang's Story of Your Life, the heptapods come to earth in a non-violent, purely benevolent fashion. Linguist Louise (Amy Adams), starts to expereicne the past, present, and future all simultaneously as she begins to learn their language. This perception is eerily similar to that of the Tralfamadorians from Kurt Vonnegut's novel Slaughterhouse-Five. Because these heptapods don't percieve time linearly, their visual lanaguage presents in circles to be read all at once. As such, the sections of Louise's life presented as being her past are revealed at the end of the film to actually be her future.
