Brian and Greg get a cab toward the bookstore; Heidi and Megan get one to the shopping.
Library of Congress. Ron and Kelly finish the Detour and get their pit stop clue. Ray and Deana carry in a bunch of books that apparently are their last load, and they finish the Detour as well. "Currently in 3rd Place," they leave for the pit stop. Speaking of the pit stop, here come Ron and Kelly. Welcome, American icons. You are team number two.
Debbie and Bianca come to the Library with their first 90 books, so they head back for 90 more.
Welcome, Ray and Deana, you are team number three. They look pleased. Maybe they're dating "on" again. I mean, you never know how frequently the switch is flipped, right?
Market. Susan and Patrick learn that their fish will cost them 9000 pesos, and -- guess what? They don't have enough money. They go out and start begging outside the market, because they apparently weren't bright enough to figure out that when you have no money, you don't specifically take on the task that requires, you know, money. I don't get this at all. It's like having a sprained ankle and picking a rope-jumping task. Are you meant to play directly to your own weaknesses?
Incongruous oompah music that I'm not sure has any particular place in Santiago accompanies Meredith and Gretchen as they continue their hunt for their next ingredient. Gretchen walks around shrieking "Chicololo," which is her approximation of where they're going, but it's making the neighborhood animals nervous. They buy the rest of their ingredients here, and then they leave to what is undoubtedly the relief of the proprietor. And the customers. And the dogs.
Lynn and Alex find the produce place and buy the rest of their ingredients. They manage to get something for free (the garlic, maybe?), so that seems a little like cheating, to me. I mean, if it said to buy the ingredients, they just...didn't do that. If you don't pay for it, you didn't buy it, so if the clue says to buy it, they didn't. Can you imagine how they would have freaked if Rob and Amber had done that? They would have freaked a lot. They leave with their stuff; Joyce and Uchenna arrive to get their stuff, get it, and go. Things do get compressed as you cruise toward the end of the episode, don't they? Just hang on tight.
