Next thing you know, it's dark and Bopper and Mark are leaving the Pit Stop in eighth and last place, at 5:54 PM. So not only are they almost nine hours behind Art and JJ, they're almost two hours behind Kerri and Stacy. And only an hour and fifteen minutes of that is from their later flight, so they added more than 40 minutes to their deficit once they arrived in Italy. They're also more than four and a half hours behind Brendon and Rachel, who had not one but two meltdowns in the previous leg. So unless that second flight they caught into Turin was delayed, they would have come in last anyway. Still, after last week's non-elimination and a gift in an unspecified amount from Art and JJ, they insist that they're, "Down but not out." Mark adds that they need the money more than any other team. Bopper gets on a train for the first time in his life, and while he and Mark begin their ride, Bopper says he's positive they'll catch up with at least some of the other teams. They certainly will if the race planners have anything to say about it.
So then the Amazing Red, Yellow and Blue Dotted Lines are shown heading east along the southern foothills of the Swiss Alps and then cutting north to Ehrwald, via Innsbruck, which Phil says is a ten-hour train ride. At 4:30 AM, a train pulls into Innsbruck and Kerri and Stacy disembark. They walk through the train station and find what looks like either the brightly colored aftermath of a yuppie massacre or a bunch of other teams sleeping on the floor. Bopper and Mark show up later, and some of the other racers joke that they were waiting for them. Like they had a choice, but Team Kentucky doesn't care; they're just happy to see them all. And so soon, too.
At 6:30 AM, Art and JJ inform us that they spent the night at the Ehrwald train station, and now they're running to the fleet of parked cars waiting outside to drive themselves get to the specified restaurant -- which opens at 8:30 AM. So maybe those cars were waiting outside when the Border Patrol agents arrived in Ehrwald and maybe they weren't, but either way it's not like they were going to be allowed to begin their first task a full day before everyone else. They still seem determined to win, though. As always.
