The convoy of racers who were on the second flight is approaching the Road Block clue box, but as Chad says, "Jill and Thomas are nowhere to be found." Everyone parks along the side of the road (there's also a panel truck in the caravan, which is either part of the production or probably very annoyed at all of these slow-moving Americans blocking its way), and when they get the clue, it'll be going to Katie, Connor, Stephanie, and Nick, respectively. They're all gone by the time Jill and Thomas get there, and she's doing the Road Block. "Let's go," he says, and they hurry off in what looks like a randomly chosen direction. "You sure it's this way?" she asks. "Honey!" he impatiently snaps at her as the camera does one of its patented ironic zooms in on the arrow pointing them in the right direction, which they completely missed. You know, we've got a diabetic on this race, and in the past we had a guy with Asperger's, a deaf kid, and that chick with the robot leg, but I think this is the first team to run the race despite being legally blind. If nothing else it explains Thomas's grooming habits.
At the lodge, Connor takes off in fifth place, followed by Nick. Jill and Thomas are still running as fast as they can go in the wrong direction, past a parked camping trailer and into the middle of nowhere. "Did we miss an arrow?" Thomas wonders. You could say that. "It looks like we're running into nowhere," Jill says, and the sentiment is emphasized by a sweeping helicopter shot of the vast wilderness in which they seem determined to lose themselves.
Katie starts the dog-sledding Road Block in seventh, followed by Stephanie, who interviews that she loves animals and has wanted a husky for, as she says into Chad's ear, "forever!" Which would be more sympathetic if she weren't saying this literally over a subtitle that describes them as "newly dating."
Jill and Thomas have at least stopped running in the wrong direction, but they still don't know where they are. Somewhere in Scandinavia, I'm guessing, but beyond that I couldn't say.
