Contestants compete with the legendary longbow. A breakout performance gives one team immunity, while two competitors from the losing team face off on the William Tell challenge in which they'll have to hit a series of apples with a crossbow.
There are 13 contestants left and a critical skill is put to the test: the split-second judgment that determines whether you hit a friend or foe. Meanwhile, rising tension begins to threaten the strength of the teams.
Using muzzle-loading weapons from the revolutionary era, contestants compete in an old-fashioned frontier face off. Meanwhile, a heated conflict in one team erupts and plays out in the elimination challenge.
