Same. I work during airtime and tape to watch the next morning, but didn't see any additional spoilers after that one, so if I'd just managed to dodge the yahoo headline...sigh.
Lol, similar situation - my housemate usually watches my tape with me; sometimes she already watched the show live, sometimes she didn't. She watched yesterday. So we both knew while watching the tape, and were awkwardly trying to speculate like we usually do in case the other didn't.
I doubt James would've thrown, but I doubt the producers would hint him off even more, given what this has done for ratings.
Sad that he didn't match KJ's total, but knowing that if he had, it probably would have been in fewer than half the episodes, is startling in itself.
Although James might've suspected Emma wouldn't bet the farm after wagering conservatively on the DD, it could also have come down to how confident he felt about the category - I don't recall whether he's been strong on Shakespeare in the past.
Either way, she played a great game, befitting someone who effectively tried to write a Jeopardy algorithm. Lovely name too ;)
