Back from the ads, Amani suggests staying, but Marcus insists the shoes would be too hard. His grandmother the seamstress would be so disappointed. The other three teams stay at it while Amani and Marcus rush their driver into leaving. Some of the shoemaking seems to be going well, with Andy and Tommy starting on the lacing. Cindy, however, accidently rips a lace through their sole, so they have to start that one over. If that's the biggest mistake they make all leg, they'll be doing better than usual.
In their cab to the fish market, Marcus figures that all the taxi-driving-by-committee that we're seeing in Panama is what led them to the wrong Detour, with their driver assuming his fares were going to the same place as the other teams. No matter, they're soon at the fish market, which is big, white and awash in fish guts. They find the crates holding the fish they're supposed to deliver and start gathering them up with their bare hands, as is apparently required. "We're going to smell so fishy," Amani says, loading up a double-armful of barracuda with Marcus. Now they have to schlep it around the market to those vendor stalls that have Amazing Flags pasted on their menu boards, which also have specific weights of different types of fish. Amani explains that anything over that weight wouldn't be accepted, so they'd have to carry any excess to another stand. Still seems less complicated than making sandals from scratch.
Andy and Tommy finish making their sandals, and the cobbler takes a look and hands over their clue. "Pancho likey!" Tommy says, erasing the cultural sensitivity points they earned the night before. Their clue is telling them to go to Cathedral Square, where a traditional dance will tell them the location of the next Pit Stop.
Those women in the fancy dresses we saw earlier will be the ones doing the dance, and one of them has the words "Panama Viejo" hidden in the floral pattern on her skirt. They're all wearing crescent-shaped metal necklaces with a picture of the old mission stamped on them. So that's two ways for them to figure out where to go, both of them fairly subtle. And as Andy reads from the clue, the last team to check in will be eliminated. Andy and Tommy are off, knowing exactly where to go. Sandy, struggling with her laces, says, "This is going really difficultly, and Tommy and Andy have already left. Shocker." The snowboarders will be going on foot, at least.
