These are the teams still in the running for this year’s title: Allyson & Melanie (friends), Aubree & Ryan (married), Christopher & Robert (tech bros), David (Poppy) & Ben (grandfather/grandson), Emilee & Kelly (competitive moms), Luis & Alex (teachers), Neena & Sam (mother/son) and Paul & Nealita (siblings). See all this season’s contestants in the gallery above.

9:00 p.m. — Previously on “LEGO Masters”! In episode 4, contestants had to harmonize the abstract idea of sound into bricks. In the end, mother/son duo Neena & Sam took the top spot and got their golden brick back. The Brickmasters sent friends Tim & Tim home for “The Great Willroni,” which failed to impress and lacked “some sort of reveal” in their magic trick. Who will be eliminated tonight? “LEGO Masters” starts now!

9:05 p.m. — The contestants enter the build room to see an exciting group of Cirque du Soleil performers flipping around the floor and spinning from the rafters. Will explains in this week’s challenge the builders must create high-flying, gravity-defying stunt performances of their very own. Teamwork is essential. There will be four pairs on one team and four on the other in this challenge. Each team will have to put on the most incredible show consisting of four acts: A contortionist act, a balancing act, a flying act and a high wire act. When time is up, their Cirque du Soleil show will go head-to-head with their rival team. Teams are selected at random by choosing a closed envelope. Here is how it broke down:

Team Cirque: Aubree & Ryan (contortion), Emilee & Kelly (flying), Allyson & Melanie (balancing) and Paul & Nealita (high wire)

Team Soleil: Christopher & Robert (flying), Neena & Sam (contortion), Luis & Alex (high wire) and Poppy & Ben (balancing)

9:10 p.m. — The teams disburse to plan out their builds. Team Soleil has settled on a love story between the moon and the sun. They feel a space theme would be a “cool” way to go for this challenge. Team Cirque is going under water for their theme, focused on a human who is gradually transforming into a mermaid. It should be fun watching these builds play out!

9:20 p.m. — Rather than completely separate each build, Team Soleil is really unifying as a team and having people build a little something on each apparatus. For instance, Neena & Sam are building the backdrops for all four acts. Should this team land in the bottom, it may make it more difficult for the Brickmasters to choose who gets eliminated. It seems as though nobody is fully responsible for anything. Team Cirque is going the opposite direction, each focusing on their own elements. They soon realize their backdrops aren’t completely matching, which causes some tension in the group. Jamie says he wants to see “fantastic performances where their power functions really bring their model to life.” Amy adds, “We want to see one coherent and aligned build.” They notice both teams have taken completely different approaches and are curious to see which works better.

9:30 p.m. — Aubree & Ryan admit they’re nervous this week and trying to redeem themselves after struggling with power functions in the past. They’re working on the final act of their show, the contortion portion. It shows the mermaid showing off her full transformation into a mermaid. When they tell Amy they’re planning to have the fish and seaweed move, she pushes them to have some movement in their main character as well. This extra task really amplifies their stress.

9:45 p.m. — With just over three hours remaining in the challenge, Will stops the clock to make things more interesting. He says the team that puts together the top solo act will win a trip to Las Vegas and tickets to the Cirque du Soleil show of their choice. Meanwhile, Sam begins to get frantic as he realizes the gears of his build aren’t turning like he wants them to. He may have spent too much time on the collective build for the whole team at the expense of the individual portion he and Neena must complete. To make things worse, since this a group challenge, they won’t be able to use their golden brick. As time winds down, teams add their finishing touches and place their four-act Cirque du Soleil shows up for judgement.

9:55 p.m. — First up is Team Soleil. Jamie exclaims, “Wow! Have you delivered!” He’s impressed with the unifying features and clear framing. Amy loves Neena & Sam’s contortionists and calls it a “spectacular show.” Jamie says Luis & Alex elevated their high wire act to a “true performance.” Next is Team Cirque. Amy calls this “a spectacular show” and gives high marks for the color, movement and emotional story. Jamie thinks Paul & Nealita’s power function adds drama. Amy loves how much movement Aubree & Ryan brought to their build. It gives life and energy to the scene.

10:00 p.m. — After a tough deliberation, the Brickmasters declare the first ever tie in “LEGO Masters” history. They can’t decide on a winning team after these incredible builds. This means NOBODY is going home! There is one pair that outshined everyone though, winning tickets to a Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas. That winning duo is Aubree & Ryan!
