Rob is next to grab himself a flag. James comes next, but he does not get a flag. It's not clear why, except that he is destined to play out his loserdom forever in front of Tyler in a series of sad anecdotes until they go on a fishing trip where he beats Tyler to death with an oar and then impersonates him while dating Gwyneth Paltrow. The *lyns look on unhappily. Dustin grabs her second flag. Rob grabs his second. James finally gets his first. Tyler is unhappy, of course, that James isn't finished. Again, as Kandice leaves, she refers to the *lyns as "Bama," saying she wants to get away before she has to see them. "That one can't even look over here!" Karlyn observes, as if this proves that obviously, she is right and the BQs are horrible, horrible people for, you know, playing the game according to its rules. As one of the BQs passes, Karlyn flips her off, and Lyn immediately says, "Don't do that. That's ugly." Oh, good for you, lady. I think I really like Lyn, and it makes me think I might like Karlyn, too, in... a totally different set of circumstances, basically. But not these. "Sorry," Karlyn says, a little sheepishly. Dustin -- now angry again -- says, "They flipped me off, the sistas." See? Happy/confident/on-display = "Bama"/"Alabama." Angry/threatened = "sistas." I'm sure she's not doing it on purpose, but unfortunately, she's doing it.
The Pointies are actually the first ones to get their clue after the race, and it tells them to drive to the town of Idelssan and find a cafÃ© where they'll find their next clue. The BQs get away next. "The sistas cannot beat us now," Dustin vows, tense and nervous again. They meet up with the Pointies on the way out, and at Kimberly's invitation, the BQs agree to work with Rob and Kim. Rob comments in an interview that he doesn't dig the BQs, but he's happy to try to benefit from working with them sometimes.
