Uchenna and Joyce and Rob and Amber get to the Roadblock. Rob and Joyce take it for their respective teams. Amber interviews as the two get started that she's done the first two Roadblocks, so Rob felt like he wanted to do one.
Welcome, Bill and Joe. You are team number four. They are very excited. Bill always jumps up and down, because that's the guy he is. And they kiss right on the mouth, which wasn't so much shown during their original race, and look how things look different in less than six years, you know? "Could you be any more in love?" Phil asks, and it's...almost like the show feels like it owes them something for last time in this regard. Which it kind of does.
Uchenna calls out, "There you go!" as Joyce looks. "Make sure you look at each letter carefully, babe!" Amber calls out.
Welcome, Dustin and Kandice. You are team number five.
"This can't be them already," Amber says as Charla and Mirna pull up. "You've got to be kidding me," Uchenna says in disbelief. Their reactions lend some credence to the later explanation offered by Rob and Amber that the boat they shared with Uchenna and Joyce carried extra equipment, and arrived only about five minutes before Mirna and Charla's, despite leaving 20 minutes earlier. I think Uchenna's instinctive, disbelieving "you've got to be kidding me" lends a fair amount of credence to that explanation. Mirna takes the Roadblock. Rob and Joyce both allow some letters to fall from their stacks onto the floor, but then Joyce finds the letter, and she's out. It turns out that their letter, for reasons unknown, is from Susan and Patrick. What, Megan and Heidi weren't available? Whatever. At any rate, Uchenna and Joyce's letter, while friendly, predictably is obsessed with Rob and Amber and the hating thereof, because apparently, Patrick cannot let it go after several years have passed. I wonder if it ever occurs to people like this that if you only have 100 or 200 words to talk, you don't want to occupy it all with commiserating. They head for the pit stop.
So now it's just Mirna and Rob. Charla knocks on the window and gives Mirna advice about looking at two particular envelopes, and Rob is frustrated and flustered, so he tells Mirna that Charla isn't supposed to help her. I think there's some truth to the fact that the non-Roadblock person is supposed to cheer the person on but not help with the task, and he may technically have a point, but the reason he's pushing it is that (1) she's a bitch, (2) he's incredibly frustrated that she showed up after five minutes instead of 20, and (3) she's a bitch. Wait, did I already say that one? Anyway, Mirna's all, "You know what? Shut the hell up," and if it were anyone else, then maybe, but from her, it's so absurd, because she is five times as entitled as he is, and that's what he's being right now, is entitled. My favorite part is where she says, "I said, 'Pray to our deceased grandmother to help us,' fuck, you wouldn't have a clue what that means." What, asking dead relatives to help you on a game show? I'm not sure I know what that means, either, and I still don't think I'd presume to tell other people how much they care about their dead relatives.
