Lena tears into another bale. "I have hay fever," she says. "And my hands are cut, from the hay and this stuff that they seal it with." Gus rolls a bale past Victoria, who's going the other direction, still wearing her bike helmet. In case, you know, she falls on some hay. "This is a rough one," Hera chuckles sympathetically.
At Haggvik, My Favorite Team and Hayden and Aaron are catching the train. "That...sucked," says Kris of the Roadblock. Indeed.
At Ikea, Lori and Bolo finish up their desk. They have it inspected, and it is pronounced "Good." The Swedes are so effusive. They get their clue, as Don and MJ struggle with the last parts of their assembly. Lori and Bolo leave in eighth place after, I believe, Bolo mentions that they've been at the Detour for five hours. "How can we be the last people?" MJ laments. "I can't believe it." Uh, I can.
Commercials. Shut up, Sprint Guy. It's Christmas. Stop whining.
We zoom back to Ikea, where Don and MJ are still building. "We can do it, Don," she says. They've got a little bit to do yet, actually. Yipes.
Lena searches another hay bale. Kristy puts her hands on her head in frustration. Gus kicks over a hay bale. "There's no point in getting frustrated at this point," Hera says, "because there's nothing I can do about it. I just have to hope that he finds it soon." Exactly. There's no point in screaming at the person, not that I expect some of these people to get the message. Victoria continues looking for a clue, and Jonathan pretends to care whether she hurts herself. Owing to the Luck of the Evil, she gets a clue and they leave.
Meanwhile, the train carrying the lead teams stops in Stockholm, and they get out, staying together while they look for the boat. And they don't show it, but do you know how they picked who would land on the mat first? Rock-paper-scissors. No, they did! It was on the Insider videos. It's really so much decency you can barely stand it. Initially, I thought My Favorite Team gave it up because they got the trip last time, but I guess they're not quite that nice. Nice shot of the hand sculpture sticking up out of the water, by the way. That was a big guy they drowned to make that. Anyway, Hayden and Aaron land on the mat first. They get to be team number one, and they win a cruise to Mexico. And the older captain type who greets them? Adorable. When he's done giving them the trip, Phil is like, "What's with these people patiently standing off the mat?" Heh. Kris and Jon step up and are team number two. They look ecstatic as they exchange a little kiss. Yay!
