Danny returns with his papers. They can go to the pit stop. Danny says that he spent almost all the money, and Oswald says he's sorry Danny got stuck doing that. Oswald says he was worried about whether Danny would be feeling okay, and Danny mentions how he stopped for water and lemonade. "So while I was worried waiting for you, you were having a lemonade?" Oswald asks. Danny proudly displays his water bottle in response. "So even right now!" Oswald says happily. "Oh my God, we're so even." Despite this moment of levity, teams stress out as they head for the finish line.
Pit stop! And it's... it's... Eric and Pink! They are team number three, and Phil chats them up about being Yielded. "There was no reason for it," Pink snots. "So I'm a little pissed." Again, those statements? Conflict with each other.
Welcome, Danny and Oswald, you are team number four. They hug, very relieved. You will now notice that the show has just pumped up a total non-event (the race between the second-to-last- and third-to-last-place teams) into something that was supposed to be suspenseful.
Not very relieved? Uchenna and Joyce, who are getting off the plane in Kuala Lumpur. As they head for the Batu Caves, they discuss how they're not going to quit until they absolutely have to, and so forth. What's very weird about this is that Uchenna and Joyce have said in interviews that they did in fact complete the tasks here, and they weren't sent directly to the pit stop. But when they open the clue telling them to go the pit stop, they seem startled and unhappy, exactly as if they were sent directly to the pit stop. It's kind of weird. I mean, it's the kind of thing you can edit together, but they did a good job of making it look like they got the "forget the rest of the leg" treatment. And I can't think of why they apparently weren't, you know? Why have them do all the tasks if the leg is already over? They don't generally do that. At any rate, they get to the pit stop, and Phil tells them that they're eliminated. They hug. They interview that it's such a weird feeling, because they've never been eliminated before! Oh, come on. Nobody says, "Wow, being eliminated is so strange" the first time they're eliminated. They say the things you'd expect about their "new spark," and "life partner," and they love each other, and that's great. They're trying to find a way to be happy and so forth, and I really hope they do, but I don't think I need to watch all of it on TV.
