Ryan begins the episode, in his second stint as King, by calling the other players to the throne area; Michael ends up respawning in a forest after having been killed by being pushed into lava. Michael immediately suspects Gavin. Gavin then notices someone on top of the throne, who Ryan reveals to be his assistant Kerry; Geoff accuses him of being 'Caleb 2.0', and Kerry goes and dies by jumping in lava. Ryan gives out the first challenge: Last guy standing wins a block of the tower. He states that the challenge could go a whole lot quicker if everyone stays in the throne area, causing everyone to scatter. Gavin and Michael both decide to hide in trees, while Ray takes refuge in Gavin's Trophy Room. Jack manages to find a cave to hide in as Michael spots an airborne Ryan. While trying to escape Michael enters a cave but before he can escape back the way he came Ryan kills him. He then kills Geoff but Geoff manages to fight back somewhat, as Kerry locates Michael again. Kerry notes that Ray is nearby as he and Michael are in Downtown Achievement City, as Ryan is near the throne area again. Claiming Ray is hiding under his floorboards, Kerry goes down a trapdoor ladder and discovers he now has a room. Ryan then manages to locate and kill Ray, leaving the match down to between Jack and Gavin. Geoff then notes that Ryan has taken his blip off the map, and he's near Jack. Kerry is then noted to be near Gavin, but he can't see him, while Ryan chases Jack. During the chase Jack notices that due to lag the face of the giant wool pig is gone. Ryan, after making himself visible again, kills Jack and Gavin wins the round, having hidden in a tree and taking advantage of his camouflage.
Challenge two is the first person to hit a note block after climbing a myriad of ladders on the back of Geoff's house. Before they start, Ryan suggests sleeping in their houses, in which Ray notices Conrad the Chicken is gone and an ocelot, who he names Percival, is in Conrad's place. Ryan loses part of his house in a Creeper explosion, and then the Hunters find themselves staring at the confusing ladders. For winning the first challenge Gavin is given a pair of diamond Feather Fall boots, while Ryan explains the rules. In a chest near the bottom is a few bows and a number of arrows. Kerry scores two ranged kills early on and Geoff soon grabs a bow and some arrows himself, shooting another player off. Gavin soon empties the chest himself. Michael soon reaches the transfer wall and is promptly shot off by Kerry. He then makes it to that spot again, but this time he falls off on his own. Third time he gets there he is killed by Geoff. Jack ends up winning as Michael and Geoff fight somewhere closer to ground level. On the return to the throne area Gavin jumps into a surprise lava pit with Jack close behind.
Challenge three is to see who collects the most pieces of raw beef, dropped by falling animals spawned by dispensers a ways above the throne area. Ryan pushes a button and the bombardment of mobs begins. Along the way a Magma Cube falls, along with some slimes. Ray winds up winning, with three stacks of 64 plus a 36, as Gavin falls into lava again while trying to return to the throne area.
Before round four starts a Creeper blows a hole into the sleeping chamber and some people start messing around with the 'Super Dump Hole'. Once everyone gets back topside Ryan declares the fourth and final challenge of the episode: Kill anyone on a team with you, return to Ryan and declare the team 'broken', and you get a point. Five minutes are set on the clock, and Ryan quickly declares himself exempt when one of the other Gents tries to kill him. Jack soon scores the first point when he kills Geoff (Team O.G.). Point number two of the game is X-Ray's when he accidentally kills Vav while going for Geoff.
