Nick|Starr and Team Divorced run out of the terminal at about the same time, but Kelly and Christy are the ones who get on the road first. The Siblings pretend not to care. I am not convinced. Aja and Ty are off in sixth place, she reminding him to stay on the left side of the road. Toni and Dallas are out in seventh, and the Belles are right behind them in their accustomed last-place spot. In the lead car, Terence is having one of his needy moments, so Sarah fondles him from the back seat. Alas, she does not mess up his hair. Ken passes Andrew, putting the Frats in third. "We're ready for anything," Tina says, looking rather scary due to the low-angle lighting and a general kind of Elsa Lanchester vibe she's putting off right now. Kelly and Christy hang on to their fourth-place ranking, but Nick and Starr are lost and have to stop for directions to the motorway. Meanwhile, Ty takes advantage of Dallas briefly driving on the wrong side of the road and steals their spot. And while getting directions, the Siblings have dropped to seventh place. Fortunately for them, Marisa and Brooke have also stopped for directions, and thus remain in last place. A helpful gas-station employee sends them on their way with a confident, "You can't get lost." Well, the Belles certainly aren't about to shrink from a challenge like that.
Terence and Sarah are still in the lead, but when Sarah wants to go one way and Terence wants to go the other, you know that's about to change because Terence is driving and they're going his way. When Ken|Tina and the Frat Boys both go a different way, Terence to his credit quickly realizes his mistake and asks Sarah, "What do you want me to do?" "Make a u-turn," Sarah instructs calmly, refraining from adding, "ass."
Further back in the pack, Ty and Aja are consolidating their make-up, with Ty talking to nobody about how arguing doesn't help anything. "You're doing a good job driving," Aja offers. Right on cue, there's a bang and the car lurches. No, he didn't run over anything; it's a blown tire. "Don't do this to me now!" Ty implores the shredded rubber on his front passenger-side wheel, after getting out to investigate. Ty says he has never had a flat tire before, so he doesn't have any idea what to do. He shouldn't feel bad, because apparently Dallas doesn't either: "Nothing I could have done there," he claims as he and Toni cruise by them, jumping from sixth to fifth. "Well, there's one team we know we're ahead of," Nick says as they pass Team Long Distance as well. Aja seems to be blaming Ty for this, and he snaps at her, so she goes out into traffic to try and flag down a passing car. Where she is instantly flattened. Not really, but she's not being particularly careful, seemingly relying on the visibility of her red pants to be spotted by motorists. And that's how we leave them. Despite this catastrophe, Brooke and Marisa are still somehow in last. Probably halfway to Wellington by now.
