Thanks to Jeremy and Sandy's navigational mishap (and I think that they've now had every possible kind), they arrive in second place and sign up for the 7:20 slot. The other two teams have also landed, and as they head up the hill toward the music, Marcus says they're going to get "that crash course in head-shrinking." Well, at least Andy is culturally sensitive. The last two teams get the 7:40 appointment the next morning, naturally.
We see everyone bedding down outside for the night with hammocks and mosquito netting, as Sandy talks about how Andy and Tommy have luck on their side for reasons she doesn't understand. God, maybe? Marcus is feeling confident about tomorrow, or at least acting it, and Cindy is worried about being in last place, forty minutes behind the leaders. "Pretty huge at this point in the game," she frets.
Did the local band play all night? Because they're back (or still) in full swing as the sun rises at 6:58 over what is now Embera Village, according to the subtitles. Confusing. I'm half-expecting Phil to explain that this village changes its name on a daily basis, but I'm disappointed. Ernie, Marcus and Amani dance to the tunes while Andy and Tommy interview some more about what a great experience it was to spend the night there. At seven on the dot, some villagers dash up to the spot near some hilltop huts where the racers are waiting and lead them at a dead run to a spot near the river where they are invited to sit down on stumps and present their arms for decoration. It's always nice when the task facilitators are also in a hurry. The tattoos turn out to be painted on, not that this prevents Andy from joking about the pain. They're tribal art designs with Roman letters mixed in. Those letters indicate San Francisco Bay Towers, which, as Phil shows us, is a pair of high-rise apartment buildings back in Panama City. Andy and Tommy go running off with their completed tattoos, and Jeremy and Sandy are fetched for theirs. The snowboarders are back in their boat, which goes a lot faster in daylight. Watch out for sandbars.
