Rob and Kim, then Tyler and James, hop into boats to go to the island.
Members of the Expired Alliance begin to have doubts about the Salt as well. The *wins are all about leaving, and so are the *lyns. But Dave doesn't want to leave, apparently on principle. "I'm not a quitter," he says. Ultimately, the *wins and *lyns take off together, and Dave and Mary are left as the only team doing the Salt. Mary assures us in a voice-over that she didn't have any hard feelings about the other two teams leaving without them. When the other teams are gone, Dave and Mary start bickering, and she says that they're "going to be the stupid couple that stays out here all night long and don't find the thing and then gets eliminated because of it."
Commercials. Ron Livingston!
When we return, Dave has decided that if Mary wants, they can go, although now, it makes much less sense. I mean, the situation they're in is bad either way, but if you switch now, you know you're behind a bunch of other people, while if you stay, you can at least hope to get lucky. I disagree with switching, I think, when you know you're the last one to do it. They don't leave quite yet.
Dustin and Kandice find the sails across a clearing. They run toward them. And as they run... Kandice falls into a big hole covered with brush. Dude, I have no idea whose idea that was, but it's awesome. It's a trap for absolutely no reason. Kandice chooses to say she feels "like Indiana Jones," and that it was cool. Hee. I do not think Indiana Jones would run around dressed like that.
The *wins and *lyns climb into boats and head for the island. Meanwhile, the BQs return to their boat and attach the sail, at which point they get the clue, which tells them to drive 12 miles to the next pit stop, which is at Chateau Bel Ombre. (Please note: Phil says that with one syllable in the last word. It's not "hombre" in the chili cook-off sense.) Last team to check in might be out. As the BQs head back, they're passing other teams, but they don't seem to realize it at first. In fact, they're concerned that nobody else seems to have done the Sea task.
