Uchenna and Joyce pull into the airport and get tickets on the noon flight as a reward for their intelligent racing, while the other teams do not make this flight, as a non-reward for sucking.
Because Lynn and Alex didn't get the word "Witbank" from the toll booth lady, they take the wrong exit on the way to the airport, while Meredith and Gretchen did, and don't, if you see what I'm saying. These two teams get their 1:35 tickets, and the suspense turns to Lynn and Alex, who quickly realize that they're lost. As things turn a little dicey in the neighborhood they've hit, they comment that they're a little scared. Which I don't blame them for, really. "This is like...Compton," Lynn comments. And really, the only difference between that and Kris's "Harlem of Shanghai" is context. Kris had such a good record by then that it was clear she couldn't possibly mean anything gross by it, while Lynn's situation is a little more sketchy, what with yelling at the locals and such. I'm not skunking them for being nervous on unfamiliar territory, but you have to watch it with that.
Commercials. I just can't get excited about UPS just because they call it "Brown."
When we come back to Johannesburg, Lynn is saying, "Pick someone who looks the least likely to have a gun," which was pretty off-putting when I first saw it, but the EEFPs in the know have been pretty emphatic about the fact that that's no idle fear, depending on where they are, so they may well have seen something in a guidebook or something that's motivating this particular discussion. I'm not wild about Lynn referring to a random guy on the street as "Tupac," but it's also the kind of thing I can imagine any number of my perfectly respectable friends saying, just because we can be a little stupid and random, so...whatever. Alex offers "Tupac" some money to lead them to the airport, and he apparently does, because we watch Alex and Lynn get to the airport just as the other teams are leaving. All end up on the 1:35 PM flight together.
