Phil apparently grows bored of waiting for Max to get to the point already, because his narration rudely cuts in to repeat what Max just read, continuing that they'll sail to Liverpool, go from there to London, England, find the Euston Tap and order a pint to get their next clue. That's going a long way for a clue, literally. Heading out into the predawn darkness, Max interviews that they've been dreaming about this since the first leg. Katie says the honeymoon has been stressful, but she still thinks that after the race, "The rest of the marriage is going to be easy." Just keep thinking that. They're also confident that they're going to win. Feel free to think that, too. Whatever gets to you to London.
Bates & Anthony are starting off at 5:04 AM. Bates's mood seems to have improved after the previous leg's Titantrum, as he interviews that it feels "pretty frickin' awesome to make the final three." As they take a cab to the ferry dock, he goes on that he lost the Stanley Cup (personally?) and doesn't want to lose the race as well. He does at least seem confident in their chances of finding a bar.
Beth & Mona round out the final three at 5:47 AM. Mona interviews that they had a lot to prove to their kids, husbands and even other derby people, not wanting to let anyone down. Elsewhere, at potentially any point during the race, Beth interviews that they have a great shot at winning as we see them they cab up.
Max & Katie get to the ferry terminal and find out that the next boat to Liverpool leaves at 10:30 AM. So this isn't going to be a stressful part of the leg at all. As the brothers reach the terminal, Anthony says he's hoping that Caroline and Jennifer will join them for the final leg, but he thinks it'll be Mona & Beth instead. "They're going to be so happy to see us," Beth says sarcastically as their cab pulls up outside. Guess what, they're not, but they manage to paste on polite Oscar-loser smiles anyway.
The ferry casts off in the morning, and the seas look fairly rough and stormy. Despite this, Max wrestles a door open so the final three teams can all step out onto the deck for what I'm sure is a production-prompted video op. They certainly wouldn't be braving this nasty wind and rain for fun. Mona exposits that it was an eight-hour ferry ride, and after everyone has marveled at the waves and been dampened by the spray coming up over the side, they find time to share their thoughts with the traveling camera crews. Beth says everyone's friendly enough now, but she's expecting another mad footrace after they land. Max says it's the calm before the storm, which in this weather foretells a big honking storm; and Bates says it's time to end Max & Katie's winning streak, just as his and Anthony's three-leg streak was brought to an end.
