The second installment of Squid Game: The Challenge brought the true colors of some of the contestants and also broke the audiences’ hearts as they saw their favorite contestant bidding goodbye to the competition.

In the sixth episode, we witness the remaining contestants playing the marbles games, in such a way that the person with the most marbles out of a two-member team will reach the next round, while the one with no marbles has to leave the game. Out of the players, there was a team whose both players were eliminated as they couldn’t conclude who won the marble game, hence they were both shot out. While the emotional ending saw the mother-duo son separating as Trey’s mother exits.

While the seventh and eighth episodes were the most entertaining and will keep you on the edge of your seats as the glass bridge game begins! It also included the dreaded elimination by players in the dormitory. During the friend and foe round, a contestant had to draw a numbered apron and then give it to the player of their choice. This also marked the sequence in which they would cross the bridge. One wrong step, and you sink into the fake glass with shattered chances. Two players were eliminated because their luck left them looming in danger. TJ and Trey both were eliminated because they had to go in the starting and slaughtered their chance by paving the way for the others. You might also feel rage towards player 278 (Ashley) for making the selfish choice of standing still, while her teammate Trey took the risk and got eliminated.

Out of the 20 players, only 12 could survive the Glass Bridge challenge. Towards the end of Episode 8, there is another twist when players are asked to either nominate themselves or the other player while rolling a dice. It further eliminated 3 more players before reaching the 9th Episode.

This was a most fun episode with only 9 players remaining in the game. It was intriguing to find out who would survive to reach the final stage. It centered around trust and gut feeling. In the game, every contestant was blindfolded and then the masked instructors drew a ball with a player number, and that player was tapped on the shoulder to take on the challenge. With a bit of luck, strategy, and mind game, this challenge was the most difficult and was a total game changer for all. Next, the selected player had to take a gift box and place it in front of any player, if the chosen player was able to guess the perpetrator then he was saved, while a wrong guess eliminated them. In the last few seconds, only 3 players were left to enter the big game.
