So the deal is: everybody else is on the same flight, arriving at 2:30 in Santiago, except Rob and Amber and Danny and Oswald, who are taking an extra connection and should be getting in at 1:50 AM as a result. At the Quito airport, Mirna tells the ticket lady she needs to check and make sure her "amigo" is on her flight, and she gives Rob's name. Too bad his plan to get other people preoccupied with him isn't working on Mirna and her steel-trap mind, huh? The airport lady tells Mirna there is no Rob on the flight. Mary and Mirna talk about what this means. Because of course, when you're bunched with seven other teams, what really matters is whether there are two teams up ahead of you.
What it means, of course, is that Rob and Amber are now arriving in Guayaquil all alone. At the gate where they're waiting for their Lima flight, Amber talks about their schedule, and Rob says they should be "the first team there." They clearly believed, when they got to Guayaquil alone, that this route was going to be theirs alone. Back at the Quito airport, Mirna is fussing to Mary and David about how this means Rob is on a better flight than they are, while Rob speculates in his interview that other teams may be "paranoid" about where he and Amber are right now. Good guess. Rob and Amber are not that happy to see Danny and Oswald show up at the gate at Guayaquil, and I'm not sure Danny and Oswald are that happy to see them, either. I think both were hopeful that they might be alone in front. It's not that often you get on a plane by yourself anymore, so they had reason for hope. Although it's dashed now, of course. And they don't have much time to think about it either, because they have bigger fish to fry when they learn that their flight to Lima is delayed. Oswald interviews that the lead they had is now a thing of the past.
