Stephen and Mal play through a portion of the Beginner Class, Knight League of F-Zero. Mallory plays for a majority of this episode, and plays very well to Stephens great surprise as it's her first time playing the game. Stephen talks about the history of the F-Zero franchise, the Mode 7 technology of the SNES and about how he was introduced to the series by going with his mother to a client's house and playing F-Zero with the client's son. The First 20 ends with Mallory crashing the Blue Falcon on the Silence track.
