The old Norwegian clock on the wall moves from 3:45 to 6:00 AM, and all the teams board the same train from Voss to Oslo. On the train, Aaron gets his first really excellent mouth-breathing shot of the season. The next thing you know, the Amazing World Map shows their route from Oslo to Stockholm by bus, and then the bus is pulling into Stockholm. I love the fact that their bus is labeled "Safflebussen." I realize it's annoying to find foreign languages cute, but how can you have bad time on the Safflebussen? It sounds like you just rode into town on the back of Snuffleupagus's Swedish cousin. At the bus station, everyone hops out and barges into the luggage compartment of the bus to get their stuff, undoubtedly making the Safflebussen non-TV-related proletariat very annoyed. Damn pushy Americans. Everyone runs, but Jonathan and Victoria lag slightly, so he screams her name, because she's too slow, and yelling helps. The teams do not all leave the bus station going in the same direction, but Hornio seems to be following Lori and Bolo. "Are you sure which direction?" El Hornio asks. "Yep, we're going to take a right," Bolo says. Gus and Hera actually go the opposite direction from the way those teams are going. Unfortunately, when Gus and Hera get to the corner, it's not the street name they expect, so something seems to be amiss.
First to find their way into the hotel and get to the Icebar are Hayden and Aaron, who do seem to navigate pretty competently most of the time. They rip the clue, which tells them that they have to slide a shot glass made out of ice down the bar and get it to stop on a target. So it's vaguely shuffleboard-like. As we examine the winter gear that they'll have to wear into the bar, Phil explains that the nightclub is kept at "a chilling 23 degrees." And they're making them wear parkas? Ha ha ha...awesome. Because you do not need a shiny parka with a fur hood when it's 23 degrees. It's a nice visual, but if it's 23 degrees and you're not staying long, you barely need gloves, let alone something that looks like it was developed in an underground Gore-Tex lab for an attack on Antarctica. (Damn revolutionary penguins.) Anyway, Phil explains that only one of the two people on the team needs to hit the target in order to get the clue. If you miss, you go to the back of the line.
Just behind Hayden and Aaron are Kris and Jon and Nuance. Aaron's first attempt goes clean off the side of the bar. Hayden overshoots the target entirely. Kris and Jon's early luck isn't much better, as we see Kristy and Lena arrive, then Spazpants. And then Don and MJ, so perhaps Bolo wasn't as sure of where he was going as he thought. The teams are closed into the bar behind a fur-lined door. Oh, yeah, you heard me. A lot of missed shots follow at the bar. And then, here come Lori and Bolo and Hornio. Still outside, wandering the streets? Gus and Hera.
