Elsewhere, Hayden glides on her skis into a bale of hay. Aaron, behind her, is doing even worse. "Honey, I'm so sorry," she says. "Please find the humor in this." And with perfect comic timing, he responds to this comment by slamming himself into the short stone wall, bouncing off it with...his head, pretty much. Hayden apologizes again, because interestingly enough, Aaron is not seeing the humor right at this moment.
Don and MJ finish the pegs, and he says he'll do the axe and she can do the bow and arrow. Nuance finishes the pegs.
Kristy and Lena and Bolo and Lori are skiing in the rain. Spazpants moves to the bow and arrow after Jonathan hits the target with the axe. Freddy hits with the axe also. MJ and Don note that they're not in last place, because Meredith and Maria are still on the pegs. So at least those two teams were on the course at the same time.
Gus and Hera stop for directions to the pit stop. Kris and Jon, on the other hand, seem to know the route without getting help, which keeps them rolling.
Don hits with the axe, but he's not too thrilled about it. "The axe sucks," he declares. Hee. Kendra and MJ work on the bow and arrow, as does Victoria. "I'm not good at this," Victoria says. "You should have had me do the other thing," she snots. Right. It's a dictatorship failure. Freddy encourages Kendra, but she turns and says, "Leave me alone, please." Heh. Yeah. MJ, meanwhile, is reminding Don that she tried archery in her youth. "I did an entire semester of college. I never hit the bale," she says. "How many times have I told you that story?" What I love is that Don is keeping up a constant, "I'm sorrysorrysorry" through this, so I suspect she's right. Don interviews that their great mistake was forgetting that MJ couldn't shoot a bow and arrow. "Wait, who made the great mistake?" she asks in the interview. He pauses. "I did," he says, and she grins. They are cute.
Spazpants is first to finish the archery and move on, of course, because the fates are not merciful today. Lena and Kristy finish skiing, and in fourth place, they move out. Bolo and Lori are done, too, and they're on the move. Still skiing in the pouring rain are Hayden and Aaron, officially in Dante's Detour Hell. They finally finish, and they move out, actually only in sixth place, so it wasn't that much of a disaster.
An SUV pulls up to the pit stop. A cow raises its head, like, "Who's driving on the grass now?" Phil and a blonde greeter look on as...Kris and Jon run toward them. Aw, yay! They land on the mat. Welcome, nice people, you are team number one. They high five, and then Phil gives them a seven-night cruise in Alaska. I totally want to go. Let's play shuffleboard!
