Teams! Driving! Is this it? Is this it? The first to the clue box... is Eric and Pink. Welcome, Eric and Pink, you are team number five. Phil asks them if they're losing confidence, and Eric says they don't feel bad about their performance, but they need to catch up if they're going to make progress.
Bill and Joe find the monument, although it takes them a little time to even track down the clue box.
2:26 AM. Uchenna and Joyce leave. Uchenna interviews that this will be "very poignant."
Finally, Bill and Joe get the clue. They head for the mat. "We had a good time," Joe says, anticipating the worst. "We did our best," says Bill. Phil tells them that they are the last team to arrive. That is the bad news. The good news is that... they are not eliminated. Although they are now "marked for elimination," have to come in first or serve a penalty... you know the drill. Joe gives Phil a smooch on the cheek for this good news. Phil encourages Joe to "kiss [Bill] instead," which Joe does. Hey, Joe's approach is very military. Phil tells him to kiss Bill, and he kisses Bill. Phil tells them that they'll have to work hard to escape the back of the pack. Joe interviews that it's not easy to make up 12 or 14 hours -- they know this from their first race, when they were behind by even more than that. Ouch. They do not want that edit again.
So that concludes your first half.
4:50 AM. Charla and Mirna open their clue. They, too, immediately deduce that going to Auschwitz is going to be pretty rough. On this, we all agree.
Uchenna and Joyce find tickets for the first charter bus, so they're pretty happy about that. When Charla and Mirna get there, they learn that they're on bus two. Meaning that Charla and Mirna, who started this leg way ahead, have already squandered the entirety of their lead and will be tied with Guido. "Hopefully, we'll catch up with everybody soon," Mirna says.
