Trey and Lexi make it to the mat without apparent incident. Phil's standing there next to an accordionist who finishes up whatever he's playing with a big flourish before telling them, "Zdravtujitye (Hello.)" and welcoming them to Moscow, Russia. Phil is pleased -- though not in much of a hurry -- to tell them that they're team number... one. They're ecstatic even before Phil tells them all about the trip to Maui they've just won. "It'll be kind of romantic," he adds, which he never said to James & Abba. Phil asks them to rate how in love they are on a scale of one to ten and Lexi puts it at a thousand while Trey wisely keeps quiet. It would have been fun to hear them simultaneously blurt out two different numbers though, especially if Trey had said, like, seven. He interviews that they now know how strong of a team they are, and are ready to win the million. The accordionist plays them a little jig to which they happily dance. Sorry it's not the Wedding March, Lexi.
James finishes unlocking the ribbon. "Good job, James! Hurry up, Natalie!" Nadiya calls out. After unfolding their ruble, the Chippendales get directions to the Bolshoi Theater from someone with an American accent. Who I'm not sure I'd trust. So that leaves Natalie and Nadiya behind to work on the Roadblock with nobody around to see if they continue being nice to each other. Which they don't, and bickering soon erupts as Natalie gets her fifth lock and each of them calls the other the worst partner ever. I'm sure Flo's partner would beg to differ.
Josh & Brent and Abbie & Ryan finally show up at the Moscow airport and get into separate cars, but tell the drivers they want to go together. Ryan talks about how they're half a day behind and Brent asks Josh if he has any fight left. Josh claims he still has a little fire in the belly, but from the looks of him it must be a tea light. Meanwhile, just as these two teams are getting into this leg's destination city, team number two is already reaching the Pit Stop. And it's Jaymes & James, which is even more embarrassing.
The Frankfurt teams do in fact make it to the sculpture garden before closing time and get their clues sending them to Moskvoretsky Most, which Abbie has a fun time pronouncing as badly as she possibly can. Apparently the secret is to throw in the maximum number of consonants.
Metal James narrates that he and Abba attempted the swimming task ten or twenty times. They go for it again and by the time they dive in with the rest of the team, the coach is clearly rooting for them. Or she's had her standards forcibly lowered so much that she's just happy they were able to make it into the pool correctly.
