"You can make 904 with the same ingredients..." That's kind of how the numbers game works, Rachel. Also, did anyone find it kind of strange that she used the 4 without showing the 6 - 2 step?
By the way, can you edit the topic title in this first post to say Wednesday? Thanks!

A deceptively difficult 2L in R9 - good luck to anyone trying to solve it.
Very difficult indeed -- in fact, while making your way to the target, you may meet the Beast himself.

REPRISAL as a beater in the last letters round.
