Akbar’s face never lies.

With our heads still spinning from the premiere episode of American Ninja Warrior, it’s already time for episode two!

The second episode of season 13 will air tonight (Monday, June 7). We have a few preview pictures from the episode and it doesn’t look like this bumpy ride will be smoothing out any time soon. First of all, just look at Akbar’s face in the image at the top of this article. You know he just saw something that blew his mind.

We’ve selected some hopefully spoiler-free photos from tonight’s episode as a little preview. But if you’re a purist, this is your regular warning to stop reading!

Joe Moravsky does not fall on the first obstacle. We can say that with confidence.

Xavier Dantzler is just one young competitor hungry to leave his mark on the course.

Tiana Webberley is back! She earned her first buzzer in season 12 and we want more of the same this time around.

Alex Weber, who tackled many obstacles on the digital series, “Crashing the Course,” returns as a competitor.

We got a look at Josiah Pippel’s run last week. But we don’t know how it ends just yet...

Zhanique Lovett looks to be in peak form on the course.

The first mom to hit the buzzer is back in the dome where she made history.

Lance Pekus rides back into action. The last time he was in Tacoma, he snagged a Mega Wall buzzer.

These athletes are just the tip of the iceberg! We’ll see them and many, many more on tonight’s episode of American Ninja Warrior. The action kicks off at 8 pm EST on NBC.
