The Globetrotters get to the Spanish Synagogue and get their museum clue, still in third place.
Meghan has figured out on her second try that she needed to fill out the boxes on the bottom to spell out "FRANZ." I notice that elsewhere on the form, in addition to her name, initials, and a list of check boxes to indicate what kind of task this is, she also had to give answers like "Patrick Henry" and "Cabernet." How very Ionescan. But it doesn't matter, because the supervisor pounds home the black KAFKA stamp, hands her a clue, and sends her on her way, with neither him nor his underling ever even cracking a smile. For one last, perfect, Kafkaesque touch, we even get to see the supervisor dumping her completed form into the trash bin as she trots obliviously but happily out. Outside, she and Cheyne read the clue sending them to a place called Kryocentrum. Sounds cold, and the flash we get of the place's storefront sign, which includes the characters -160˚ C and a drawing of a harp seal lying on its side to wave a friendly flipper, would seem to support that. But that's where their next clue is. They go running off in search of a cab, but the next one they spot is the one that belongs to the brothers, who are just arriving. Sam and Dan firmly tell the cabbie to wait for them before leaving. And when Meghan runs up and asks their driver for a ride, he declines. "No, tell him it's okay!" Cheyne calls out to the departing boys, but Meghan says they're not going to do that and asks the driver to call another cab. "This sucks," she says. Yes, they actually encountered another team. So much for a clean leg for them.
Sam and Dan open their clue in second place, and as Dan heads in to do it, Sam warns him, "Hey, don't get frustrated, okay?" That should work. Dan takes in the scene inside, and Sam describes it as it's happening: "I know Dan's gonna get so frustrated because it's gonna be all obnoxious and he's gonna get distracted and flustered." Out on a limb much? But Dan seems to quickly get an A. The letter A, that is, not the grade. As if there's any danger of the latter.
