This show is finally over. No more cheating Cootes, crying Favereys, praying Montgomerys, blazer-wearing Katzenbergs, ankle-spraining Ricos, screaming DiSalvatores, over-narrating Pollards, or pasty Reno! We open on a repeat of the end of last week, when the Coote father couldn't keep his mouth shut and Coote mother was her usual nasty self. On the DiSalvatore RV, Amy is already screaming, which doesn't bode well for the rest of the show. She's all worked up over what Keith said about taking them down next, but the male DiSalvatores tell her to let Coote father talk all he wants -- it doesn't guarantee his family a win. Except for the first six shows this season, when it totally did. Silvio says he's ready to show the Cootes what it feels like to lose. And I must admit that I'm ready to watch it.
Suddenly, we're in Pomona. Reno emerges from his RV and greets everyone and congratulates them insincerely for making it this far. He then reveals that the end of Route 66 is in Los Angeles, and the music swells here as if this were new information, which it is not. Reno pulls a cube out of his RV and says the families will have to find three more cubes hidden all over Los Angeles. Each cube has product placements that double as incredibly easy clues on it telling the families where to find the next one. Once they've gotten all four cubes, they'll put them together to show a picture of where the last End of the Road challenge will be. So ... the cube hunt and run to the location isn't the End of the Road challenge in and of itself? So what do you get for arriving at the End of the Road challenge location first? Is this even a contest? I'm confused. Amy figures out that the first cube is telling them to go to LAX via the 101, which isn't a route to LAX that I've ever used, probably because it doesn't go anywhere near there. The Cootes figure the cube clues out immediately as well and set off. But the DiSalvatores aren't going anywhere, because Silvio and Amy have to fight over who's driving. Blake calls them both ridiculous and says that they're fighting right now because Silvio wants to drive and Amy is all stressed out because she just had to be around Reno. Ha! Reno puts Amy in a bad mood. Blake says he's already nervous about their chances in this challenge. Meanwhile, he appears to be interviewing from LAX, so it looks like they got there eventually. Finally, Amy yells at her family for arguing so much, even though she's the one who kind of started it in the first place.
