In the Boston cab, a clearly exhausted Chris notes that they've already run several miles. In the Taraweasel cab, Wil is demanding that Tara "get some confidence." God, that is a really insidious and horrible piece of behavior. Look, you can EITHER tear her down, OR you can lecture her on her lack of self-esteem. You really can't do both. I mean, I don't want to go out on a limb here, but I'm thinking that the fact that you constantly call her stupid isn't doing wonders for her confidence, you know? Tara reiterates that Boston will beat them in a footrace. "I don't care," Wil says. "Run your ass off. Run your heart out. It means everything." Just a little pause here to say...no, Wil. It doesn't mean everything. It means winning a game show and a pile of money. Take it from me -- it does not mean everything. When she doesn't respond the way he wants her to, Wil sits back in his seat and suggests that they quit. Oh, super. She says AGAIN that Boston is going to beat them in a footrace. "No, they won't," Wil says, trying for an air of confidence.
Teeth cab. Blake reassures Paige that there's no way the other teams can be more than ten minutes ahead. Eek. That's...kind of a lot at this point, isn't it? Sigh.
Wil notices that his driver has a slight lead on Boston, and tries to get enough of a lead to lose them. Doesn't work. Wil starts giving random directions to his driver, trying to shake Chris and Alex. He lays out his plan as follows: They're approaching a place where he's going to tell his driver to pull over. Then he and Tara will wait for Chris and Alex to jump out, and then they'll speed away. Wow. What an impressive plan, Boor-is and Not-tasha.
The more interesting conversation is in the Boston cab, where two race strategies are being debated without their even really knowing it. Alex basically knows that they're going the wrong way, so he just wishes they hadn't followed Wil and Tara. Chris, on the other hand, believes that it doesn't really matter whether it's the right way or the wrong way -- what matters is that they stay with Wil and Tara, because they've got to get out of the cab sometime, and when they do, it'll be a footrace. I think there's a small hole in both of these teams' strategies, which is BLAKE AND PAIGE, but I suppose if they know how far behind those two fell, it might not be that big a deal. Still risky, though. Wil has his driver pull over. Alex and Chris are looking around to see whether this looks like it could be a circle at a fort. They're dubious from the beginning.
