Molly has overcome several health issues including a form of arthritis from an early age. She has learned not to take things for granted.

$10,000: A remnant of the Spanish Colonial era, Intramuros is a 450-year-old walled city located in the center of what cosmopolitan Asian capital?
A - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Molly says Scrabble has never been her game and she hopes the audience plays it.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Ask the Audience results:
A - 17%
B - 37%
C - 18%
D - 28%

That's not a very good response, so Molly goes with the 50:50.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
"50:50 results": C & D

Molly was thinking it was B, but it's not up there any more. She decides to bring down Christian, her +1. He knows that the common letters are worth only 1 and thinks X is worth 8 or 9. He and Molly try to do some calculating and Molly asks "how much thunder" does Chris have about going with C. He says not much. She decides to make C her final answer.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: C (TWELVE is worth 12 points)

Molly says she feels extra pressure since she's from San Francisco. She knows who the four women are but not which one was a calypso performer. Molly's mother said that if Molly made it to $20,000 she should walk away. Molly's gut is telling her it's B but she's going to walk away.
