Back on shore, Eric and Pink read a clue sending them to San Francisco. When they land, they'll head for the Old Mint. Eric and Pink, and then the BQs, read this clue and head for their cars. Getting into the car, Pink assures us that getting a good flight is "impor-ant." For the first time, something is very much amiss with the BQs in their car. Kandice voices over that they were both very frustrated and angry by the time they got back from the paddling. And Kandice is taking the lead: "Dustin, out there on the water, you were not a good teammate," she says from the back seat. "You were about Dustin, and that's it, and you didn't care what I was saying." "We paddled your way," Dustin counters. "No, we didn't," says Kandice. Dustin insists it was "a give and take," but Kandice is like, "Not." "I have no patience for you right now," Kandice says. It gets a little painful as Dustin insists that she was doing what she thought was good for the team, while Kandice is sort of put off that overriding her was what Dustin deemed best for the team. Kandice says that she "suck[s] up a lot," and that Dustin "can't ever admit anything" (yikes). "Kandice, you're saying a lot of hurtful stuff right now," Dustin says. Finally, Kandice says that "it's over." I hope so! I don't like fighting. Unless exactly the right person is getting a blow to the head. It's kind of painful how they're trying very hard to have Productive Conflict, like, "You are making me feel [x]. I need you to validate my feeling that [y]." "Well, right now, I am feeling [z]." But of course, it's very difficult for that not to degenerate into "Right now, I very much feel like hitting you with [a, b, and c]."
