Alex voices over that the folks working the plane indeed understood the situation, so they weren't about to intervene. His next move is to broadly fake a leg injury and collapse to the floor, blocking the aisle. (He's laughing the entire time -- he's not actually attempting to fool anyone.) Blake and Paige finally brilliantly deduce that they're being intentionally held back. "Those guys are stayin' on the freaking front of the plane acting like jackasses," Blake notes. Aw, sucks when your own rule-stretcher is countered by somebody else's rule-stretcher, doesn't it? Incidentally, the lady at the bottom of the steps as they de-plane is, I'm pretty sure, the same lady they were complaining to back at the gate (the lady with the hat and the glasses), so she knows exactly what's what, and as stated previously, what she's doing is basically letting the teams equalize the situation for themselves rather than doing what she probably should have originally done, which is haul the Teeth's carry-on bags off the plane and make them check them like everybody else did.
In short, I found that entire sequence very, very funny, I laughed out loud repeatedly, Blake and Paige deserved it, and I completely side with Boston. It was a minor bit of revenge for a minor bad act, and it ought to be laid to rest. Period.
Once the luggage gets off the plane, everybody runs for the terminal. Well, the other teams run -- the Teeth walk, which makes me even less sympathetic to their cause. Boston jumps in a cab, as do Tara and Wil and Cha-Cha-Cha. Blake and Paige land a ride, too, once the driver corrects them about which side of the van to jump in from. Would've been funny to see Blake trying to find the door handle on the wrong side of the van, though. I think he might have looked for quite a while. Anyway, Phil explains that they're headed for Wentworth Station, a farm where their next clue can be found. Chris says that Taraweasel and Cha-Cha-Cha are just behind Boston, and the Teeth are "freakin' out, 'cause they thought they had a jump, and now they don't." Ah, another of Blake's schemes goes down in flames. Maybe he should have offered the flight attendants a wooden rhino.
Speaking of the Teeth, here's Blake, telling their driver to speed, and Blake will pay for the tickets. So, just to refresh your memory, if you're casting Blake in the role of Captain Put-Upon in the morality play inside your head? You've just got to trust me -- he's really not cut out for the part. He and Paige say that they're going to go do the Fast Forward. They've decided it's now most advantageous to go for it, as Phil explains during his Fast Forward speech. This week, you claim the FF by taking a speedboat ride on the Shotover River, spotting a flag, and grabbing the ticket. Not terribly challenging, I must say, but more so than a meat pie.
