    Previously on episode 8 of Hunter x Hunter:
    "The airship reaches the Phase Three site, which is a tall featureless pillar built on an equally high platform. It's called the Trick Tower. The candidates are told that to pass Phase 3, they have to climb down from the top to the base of the tower within 72 hours. An experienced rock climber candidate tries to climb down the side but is eaten by some flying monsters. Later, Kurapika finds that more than half of the candidates have gone missing from the top platform. Gon and Killua then tell Kurapika and Leorio that they have discovered hidden trap doors that flip and go inside the tower. However, the catch is that there are many hidden doors and each one can be only used once by one person, which means they have to split up. Gon, Killua, Kurapika and Leorio try out different doors, saying goodbye, only to realize that they all end up in the same room. Gon's group is given special wrist**tches, and Lippo, the Phase 3 examiner, explains that the wrist**tches can be used to vote for which paths to take through the Tower. They will need to cooperate in order to pass this phase. However, there are 5 watches and they cannot proceed without a fifth member. Tonpa eventually falls through the trap door, joining in as the fifth member, and the exam proceeds. By following majority rule, the group eventually reaches an arena, where they have to face prisoners hired by Lippo to become combatants. Lippo explains that to pass, all they have to do is win three rounds. But the prisoners are given reduced sentences by one year for every hour they manage to keep the candidates here. Tonpa volunteers to go first, pitting himself against a combatant named Bendot in a death match. Tonpa immediately gives up, and Leorio accuses him of sabotaging candidates, which he admits to doing every year. Kurapika manages to stop Leorio, saying that this is part of their plan to make them fight each other and waste time. Gon decides to go for the second match, and is up against Sedokan, a jailed serial bomber"

    Gonna be honest here. The string of episodes with these prisoners are pretty dull (in my opinion) but hey what can you do. This must be the candle guy.

    This guy Gon's fighting looks like the Team Masho leader Kuwabara defeated from YYH.

    That's basically the equivalent to the people we hang out with on these boards.
