Brad and Victoria are still on the train to Brasov, and Victoria narrates that they wondered if it was possible for another team to "have screwed up as bad, and if they did, then we're still in the game." Maybe if they were off the train and in Brasov already, but otherwise...well, let's just say it seems to have taken Tammy and Victor a lot less time coming down the hill than going up.
Team Go Team comes stumbling down the hill towards the mat. I know Phil has nerves of steel, but further proof is the fact that he has to watch all these teams come bumbling downhill towards where he's standing, with an even steeper hill dropping away just a few yards behind him. If someone overshoots, he'll just keep tumbling until he's in Moldova. The cheerleaders are quite happy to hear that they are team number seven, and still in the race.
Tammy and Victor are now scouring the trail the coffin left in the overgrown grass and fallen leaves on the hill. An Amazing Cameraman zooms in on the surface, which does not display ideal conditions for a key hunt. Or maybe he's zooming in on the actual key and I just can't see it. Victor bemoans their bad luck until somehow, miraculously, he finds the key. Tammy tells him good job. They seem to get the coffin open pretty quickly, but go through quite a pile of frames before getting to the frame with the flag inside. Off they go to the Pit Stop in eighth place.
But the Race isn't done fucking with them yet, because when they reach the mat, Phil somberly tells them, "Tammy and Victor? I'm sorry to tell you... that you are... the second-last team to arrive." They're so emotionally and physically wrung out that it takes them a minute to get what he's saying, but eventually Tammy says, "Good job, Victor." Oh, Tammy, he did this to himself. It's not your job to make him feel better. He starts crying again, and Phil asks him why he's upset. "I'm not upset," Victor claims. "It's just, I'm just glad that we're done. We're alive and that's what matters." Still the drama queen. Victor interviews post-leg, "The stressful environment has made it very clear that the older brother-little sister dynamics don't work well on a race." Yes, Victor, blame the "dynamic." It was the "dynamic" that refused to listen to reason at least a half-dozen times. He continues, "And I think it's a real chance for us to improve the way that we relate to each other so that we can be both effective and not, what I think is unintentionally, hurtful." I agree with that last part, except for the "us" and the "we." As for Tammy she's still on the mat when she tells Phil that she's learned, "I have to speak up a little bit more." In her interview, she says, "I need to hurt his feelings a little bit when I think that I'm right and he's wrong and just be very vocal about it." Well, that's not entirely out of line with Victor's goal to be less unintentionally hurtful..
