At any rate, Mirna explains how personal this is, and how close her family ties to it are, which I'm sure is quite true. Eric comments as he leaves that this "makes you grateful for what you have." It will just hurt your heart to see how similar Bill's reaction is to Oswald's, in that he says that it made him realize how recently in history he could have been killed for being... himself, basically. I can't imagine how creepy that would be. I really can't. During the lifetimes of people who are still alive, people like me were killed for existing. It's hard to simulate that feeling if it doesn't come to you naturally, as it doesn't to me.
Elsewhere, Uchenna, on the way to the pit stop, still has his mind on Auschwitz. "It still has me kind of freaked," he admits. "One of these days, we're going to get it," he says. "Hopefully, we'll get it before we all destroy each other." "It's definitely going to happen one day," Joyce replies, and... I really hope she means the "getting it" part.
Charla and Mirna are on their way to the theater, and they're struck by how incredibly foggy it still is. Eric talks about how they have to make sure Team Guido doesn't come out ahead by half an hour. Joe and Bill, still clearly shaken up, talk about doing their best and seeing how it goes.
Oswald and Danny and Uchenna and Joyce park their cars and head for the pit stop together. In fact, they're so together that they "1,2,3" onto the mat. They are tied for team number one. Phil explains that he has only one prize to give away. Danny and Oswald immediately say they'll give up the prize. Well, it makes sense, because Uchenna and Joyce only won a million dollars, so why would they share? They certainly have no reason to give anything up. Phil tells Uchenna and Joyce that they've won a trip to St. Lucia. Fishing! Sailing! A lavish room! They thank Danny and Oswald for bestowing the trip upon them. Oswald assures them that he won't be handing over the money. He'd better stick to that.
At the Intersection, the BQs are discussing their situation. They voice over that they thought about what team they wanted to work with, and in order, the teams were Team Guido, Eric and Pink, and Charla and Mirna. In fact, they hide in a little booth as they become aware of teams approaching, because they're considering taking their time and trying to pick who they want to work with. In other words, they've been waiting four hours and they might be willing to wait longer if it means they don't have to do a Detour with Charla and Mirna. The first team they see pull up and hop out of the taxi is... Charla and Mirna. The BQs share with you their scandalous thoughts of "shoot" and "dang it," before lighting up a clove cigarette and enjoying some O'Doul's. They give it a minute to see if anyone else is right behind, but ultimately, they decide to head out and grab Charla and Mirna so they can get going, preferences be damned.
