Flight Time and Big Easy are pulling up outside the windmill. Back at Martinitoren, Ericka's going nuts. Sam and Dan reach the signpost pointing to the different Detour options, and the hand-painted "Farmer's Game" sign pointing to the right is actually indicating a patch of gravel right here by the canal. They strip to their long johns and jump in with their microphones still strapped to their chests. Apparently the water's quite cold, going by a scientific scale that measures complaining, and they're about halfway across when Meghan and Cheyne pull up, strip, and jump in. Both teams have their shoes and unknown other items clutched tightly in plastic sacks. Sam and Dan start golfing, which, since it's Sam and Dan, also involves a lot of yelling at each other about how hard to hit the ball. But Meghan and Cheyne do even worse, shanking it off the course so Meghan has to hop a fence to retrieve the ball. Sam and Dan complete their first hole in eight strokes, so they're in good shape. They start the second hole yelling happily instead of angrily, which I guess is a change for the better.
"We're gonna finish what we started and we're going to finish strong," Brian says. Since Ericka's latest guess is 57, that's somewhat in question.
Gary and Matt arrive at the dance hall, and Matt easily rings the bell. Then they enter the dance hall, and there's a whole introductory montage, with similarly-dressed Dutchpeople dancing around to loud accordion music. Cut to an "interview" clip of Matt and Gary just laughing. I love it.
Maria has to stuff her clogs with straw and chase a spider away before she can put them on. "Maria for once was the man in the relationship," Tiffany informs us, explaining why she ended up wearing the female costume. They get cycling. "Who are we right now?" one of them wonders. "Like, who are we?" Oh, just think about how many cards you could stash in those outfits.
Ericka comes out of the church tower, tearful in her frustration. His arms still hidden away in his t-shirt, Brian walks over and tells her to take her time. She says she's not giving up, but they'll take a five-minute break. Is that how you catch up? I don't think it is, is it?
