Cut to... early the next morning, as the three trailing teams gather 'round the counter to buy their tickets. Interestingly, as they purchase the tickets, we learn that this flight, too, is also scheduled to land in Kiev at 1:35 PM. So while it leaves later, its scheduled arrival time isn't any later. The Pointies soon meet up with the A(AM!)s, and the two teams figure out that they have the same arrival time. The BQs approach the *wins, and the discovery is exactly the same -- it's 1:35 all around. "Well, you know, planes get delayed," says a BQ, hoping for the "best."
Okay, so first the flight to Vienna leaves, carrying the A(AM!)s and BQs. Then, the flight to Warsaw leaves, carrying the other teams. The next thing you know, we are in Warsaw, where it turns out that connecting flight to Kiev has been delayed half an hour. Moral: Austria is friendlier than Poland.
And then we are in Kiev, and at 1:35, here comes the plane. The BQs and A(AM!)s run through the airport and out to the parking lot, where they have to search for the marked cars. When they finally find the cars, Dustin remarks that they look just like her '64 Falcon. The boys, meanwhile, are wondering what's up with the other three teams, who of course were expected at the same time. These two teams open the clue that's on the car, which is written in the Cyrillic alphabet, meaning that James's attempts at phonetic pronunciation are well beyond fruitless. Phil explains that they have to figure out that they're supposed to go to the Oster Tank School, which is a military training place 58 miles away. There, they'll find another clue. Both teams start looking for someone who can tell them where they're supposed to be going. The BQs settle on hiring a taxi to lead them there -- 58 miles away? -- and the boys follow and agree to split the cost of the guide. As this little caravan takes off, Tyler comments that he's glad they're still the first two teams, so they just have to keep going. In the BQ car, Dustin happily announces that the only thing she knows about Ukraine is the Ukrainian Bell Carol, which you may know as the Carol of the Bells. She starts to sing. Kandice happily joins in. It's all "duh," so it suits them. ["It's one more thing than I knew about that song, so good for her, I guess?" -- Sars]
Back to the airport, where, at 2:05 PM, the teams that connected through Warsaw are finally arriving. The Pointies get out ahead of the other two teams and get to their crappy car first. Rob also hires a taxi to drive ahead of him to the Tank School, just as the *wins and *lyns are emerging from the airport. In their car, Kimberly hopes that they'll catch up to the two leading teams. When they're gone, the *wins and *lyns open their clues. Erwin takes a map over to a police officer and gets directions as Lyn and Karlyn stand around as usual, waiting to be led. Karlyn waves down the *wins and asks if they know where they're going -- since she certainly doesn't -- and they agree that the *lyns will follow the *wins. You will not see the part where the *wins tie Karlyn down, demand she follow them, and refuse to take no for an answer. Once they're on their way, Karlyn points out that the *wins have a map and she and Lyn don't, so it makes sense to follow. Again: nothing about whether they were perhaps prohibited by law from buying a map or something like that. Driving to the tank school, Godwin compares looking at the street signs to "looking at an eye chart," since some of the letters he recognizes and others he doesn't. He doesn't... he doesn't recognize all the letters on the eye chart? Like, they look unfamiliar in the same way as the Cyrillic alphabet? I think that's a problem, and maybe not the one the eye chart is testing for. Suddenly, Erwin isn't sure where they're going anymore, and behind him, the *lyns are unhappy that they seem to be slowing down. The *wins ultimately pull over so that Erwin can ask for more help. "This is ridiculous," Lyn mutters unhappily. Erwin, it turns out, is trying to hire a cab they can follow, but he's having trouble finding a cabbie who knows where the tank school is. "We are wasting a lot of time," Karlyn complains.
