It's time for the Pointies to get the Detour clue at Apartment 33, and they're very grateful. Rob goes for the double-grasp handshake, rather than the hug. They decide to Make The Music. Looking for the club, Kim is like, "Babe, I want to ask these people, because they look hip!" Hee hee. They approach a nice-looking young couple and ask them about the club. They do know where it is, and they recommend driving rather than walking. In fact, they're so nice that they come along with Rob and Kim, who appear to also keep their taxi driver who's been with them since early in the leg.
The *wins and *lyns are still looking for the apartment building, and Erwin hops out of the car yet again to ask for directions. Karlyn is, you can tell, reaching the end of her rope. Finally, Lyn says, "So why not you navigate?" Ungrammatical, but... exactly. Karlyn claims that she hasn't wanted to be following the *wins the entire time. In an interview, Karlyn says that while she loves the *wins, Erwin has no confidence and is constantly stopping to check himself, which drives her nuts. As the guys continue trying to get directions, the *lyns finally make their break and drive off. The *wins are surprised that the *lyns drove off without waiting for them. Jeez, it's not a race, ladies. Erwin says that they're "disappointed" in the *lyns, because they've been working together for such a long time. Lyn tells us that she really doesn't mind being on their own rather than following. You'd think it might have occurred to her, then, to do this a little sooner. "Our alliance with Team Alabama's over," says Erwin in a voice-over, which is laid over a shot of Erwin in the car, which is a little strange.
When we come back from commercials, the *wins find the *lyns up ahead and start following them. Burn!
Music Academy. Tyler and James are nattily sorting through music, looking for Concert Fantasy. James manages to come up with the music, and they're off to the practice rooms to find a pianist. The first room they stick their heads in contains a violinist. I love how this is kind of a Classical Music Parade of Horrors, like they open the door, and it's "NO! Not the violin!" And elsewhere, here's Kandice, not only composing the bad rap, but also putting dance moves to it: "And finally Ukraine / where we're doing our rap / give us a hand if you think we got knack." Oh, man. Nothing says "hip" like the use of the word "knack," not to mention referencing your rap in your rap, by calling it your rap. Furthermore, if you're going to rap this badly, it's not that hard to find a word that actually rhymes with "rap." Tyler and James find another damn violin. Finally, they open a door and find a pianist behind it. Dustin and Kandice stroll into the club proper, all, "Just be real comic!" Eep. They do a couple of lines of rap, and then we switch back to the piano. This is a nice sequence, cutting back and forth between the club and the classical music. James and Tyler kind of get into the spirit of the piano music, swaying and conducting and pantomiming playing the piano. The bad rap continues. When the piano bit is over, the boys applaud heartily. Finally, the rap ends, and the kind-hearted audience cheers for the lame Americans, as people around the world do every day. Both teams receive their clues. The clue instructs them to drive to the next pit stop, located at the Patriotic War Memorial. Phil says that this is a two-mile drive to this "tribute to victory in World War II." Last team may receive the ultimate tribute to non-victory in the form of elimination. Both the A(AM!)s and the BQs get on their way to the pit stop.
