"Warning, the last team to check in may be eliminated:" Mallory reads from the clue, answering my question. She and her dad, as well as Amanda/Kris and Kisha/Jen, are soon on their way.
Back in the tank, Vyxsin can't seem to find her way back to the exit. She narrates that she couldn't relax enough to actually make herself breathe, and we see a dive guide helping her. She compares it to being buried alive. But wouldn't a Goth dig that?
Back from the ads, Vyxsin explains that she realized she needed to get her mind off it by thinking about something more important, and the sudden loss of Kent's dad this past spring seems to fit the bill. As she's telling us in a post-leg interview about how she found the strength to "do it for dad," even Kent sitting next to her is looking like, "What?" At least that probably explains why he's back to "Kent" now. Sure enough, Vyxsin finds the exit and climbs out. But it looks like her drawn-on eyebrows weren't so lucky; they're still down there somewhere. Maybe she'll get to go back for them after the end of the leg.
Gary/Mallory and Amanda/Kris are wandering around on foot in search of Shelly Beach. Somehow they seem to be approaching it from different directions through a residential neighborhood. It's not a very big patch of sand, but there's Phil and his hat, and a surfer dude in trunks. What, did the guy in 17th-century regalia have a storytime to get to or something? Both teams are running for it, but the first to arrive are...Gary and Mallory. The greeter welcomes them in first place. Phil hands over the Express Pass while Mallory, predictably, freaks out. "But you guys are still racing," Phil informs them, and hands them their next clue. He tells them to read it right there and get going. "No rest," he adds. "You're still going." Mallory is having trouble taking this in. "Mallory, this is no time to dilly-dally!" Phil tells her. She gathers up her stuff, babbling about their second chance until Phil finally says, "Stop talking and go!" I think he'd actually be okay with either one of those options. They run back across the beach and out of the episode.
Amanda and Kris arrive in second place and get their next clue, and a reminder that they still have that U-Turn ahead of them, meaning they'll have to do both sides of the next Detour. You know, if the show ever gets to it. Kisha and Jen arrive in third place and get their next clue as well. Their reaction to the news that the leg is not over is much more calm than it was last time.
