The BQs are pretty sure they're on the right track. Team Guido, too. The first of these teams to arrive at the clue box is the BQs. "Who wants to be a knight in shining armor?" the clue asks. Because indeed, it is a Roadblock. Phil explains that in this Roadblock, one person will become a medieval knight by putting on a suit of armor and leading a horse a half a mile to a castle. There, they'll hand off their horse to a stable boy, enter the courtyard, and find the pit stop. I have to admit, any Roadblock with "stable boy" in it sounds pretty dirty to me. It's like having a Detour with "cable guy" in it. It just screams for a saxophone on the soundtrack. Dustin takes the Roadblock for the BQs. "I thought my heels at home were pointy," she remarks.
Behind them, here comes Team Guido, but they think they might have gone too far. Mirna and Charla and Eric and Pink all worry that they're lost.
Dustin puts her armor on. Armor fetishists start their engines. Well, actually, they would... stoke their bonfires or something, since engines wouldn't be part of their worldview. Charla and Mirna arrive next, and Mirna is all, "this is a critical moment," she might need to be the one to do it, blah blah. Charla says, however, that she'll do it, because Mirna pretty much forced her hand with the speech in the car. Dustin begins leading the horse, and Charla gets suited up. They do have a suit that fits her, which is interesting. Charla unfortunately has a few problems with this task, which is one of the ones least well suited to her, really. Her height is an issue with being able to lead the horse the way the horse expects. The armor is harder for her to walk in than for many others, because her legs are so short. The horse potentially could go faster than she can, again because her legs are short. There are really a host of reasons this is a bad idea, which is why Mirna maybe should have closed her yap in the car a little sooner.
Dustin and Kandice walk with their horse. Mirna harangues Charla that the horse's problems following are her fault for doing it wrong. I spoke to a friend of mine after this episode who said that this was the first episode of this show that she ever saw, and all she could say was, "I couldn't believe how the one was yelling at the small one!" Indeed.
Eric and Pink and Team Guido arrive at the clue box. Eric takes it, as does Bill. As they get going, Joe (I think) notes that Charla looks like "a dressed-up rat," which I don't dislike for its meanness so much as for its... randomness. I don't know. I don't even get it, really. There's got to be a better line than that, if you're going to mock a little person in a suit of armor. I'm not saying you'd feel good about yourself, but if we're going with "rat" anyway, you know? Mirna is still criticizing everything Charla does, telling her that she's doing it wrong, the horse is confused, and on and on and on. I think even the horse is tired of listening, and I keep thinking he's going to start cooperating just so she'll settle down.
