It is sunny again when MJ finishes the archery. The weather is very mercurial in this episode. She and Don leave in seventh. Finally, Meredith and Maria complete the outer ring of the pegs, leaving only the king. This is the cause for great rejoicing, as it appears that they may someday finish this leg. Spazpants and Gus and Hera are arriving at the pit stop. They drive in together, so unsurprisingly, Spazpants is in the lead arriving at the pit stop, as they are able to narrowly defeat Gus and Hera in a footrace. They run up to Phil, who does not look excited to see them. He announces that they are team number two. Gus and Hera are team number three -- good for them. "That's good," Gus says. "That's real good," Phil says happily. I think Phil likes them. At least they don't hug him.
Kendra hits the target and they leave. I still like them. Lena and Kristy, meanwhile, appear rather lost. Meredith and Maria finally finish the pegs. Hornio skis, with Rebecca encouraging him and saying that they're in a neck-and-neck race. In a nice piece of editing, Meredith throws the axe and we watch her look around cautiously to see if it counts. Told that it does, she happily runs with Maria toward the archery, and it's only as they pass the axe target that we see the axe -- barely in the stump, with one corner in the wood, but with the thing mostly just resting with the bottom of the blade on the top of the target. They barely even injured that target.
Hornio finishes the skiing, with Rebecca hollers encouragement and they run for their car. Which...they can't find. "This isn't our car!" Rebecca hollers. And a great cut takes you straight to Don and MJ, who are in transit when MJ says, shocked, "This isn't our car." And back at the Detour, Hornio continues searching in vain for their car, unable to figure out what's gone wrong. It's one thing to lose sunglasses, but El Hornio's pretty sure that he didn't leave the car anywhere particularly suspicious.
Commercials. I can't believe anyone has acid reflux disease anymore, considering all the products available to treat it.
When we return, Hornio is still looking for its car. In the Don/MJ car, Don is saying, "We've got to go back." "No, we don't!" she says. Wow, naughty. Quite correctly, Don points out that they have to go back, because even if they didn't have someone else's car, they would have someone else's bags, and to keep on to the pit stop would be "stealing." As soon as they get back to the pit stop, Hornio immediately spots the car and recognizes it as theirs. Don and MJ jump out, Rebecca and El Hornio jump in. There's a great madcap movie in there, where some old couple runs off with your car and you have to chase them all over the country, from one senior citizen center to another. I would call it Early Bird Special. Who's with me?
