Tyler hassles James to get the last flag, which James finally does. Poor, poor James. Just as the boys are getting ready to go, the *lyns are finally able to open their clue. Karlyn takes it. The Pointies and BQs are getting on their way, and interestingly, Rob is taking the position that Yielding the *lyns was "crappy." Back at the stadium, Lyn very calmly says to the camera that she thinks it's interesting that she's perceived as a threat. "That's what they get for slow-walking to the Yield mat," Dustin nearly spits in the BQ-mobile. Lyn goes on to explain to us that if the BQs were smart, they'd have left her and Karlyn in the race, rather than specifically trying to knock out the physically weakest team. It's an interesting argument. I don't think it overcomes the fact that if you're third, you're just trying not to be last, but I know what she's going for. Tyler and James get a cab to lead them the 22 miles to Idelssan.
Karlyn takes off in the chariot, as Lyn explains that Karlyn will undoubtedly perform well as a result of being so pissed off. Heh. That's an example of knowing your friend, people. She adds that they're not really all that far behind. Speaking of which, as the Pointies and BQs ask for directions, they are caught up to by the A(AM!)s. Wow, so much for that lead. As a matter of fact, Tyler and James blow right by them, so... too bad, there, folks. Rob, and then Dustin, get frustrated and decide to just follow the A(AM!)s. So much following these days.
Karlyn is already fetching her second flag, so she and Lyn are getting going without too much of a delay, it would appear. "She did it really quick, compared to the other teams," Lyn notes admiringly as she heads off to meet her partner. They collect their clue and read about Idelssan.
The A(AM!)s run into a problem with their leading driver when he tells them that he doesn't want to take them all the way to Idelssan. He points them in the right direction, though, and he sends them off. As they drive off, Dustin notes with absolute delight and a visible grin, "Rob and Kim have a flat!" "I wonder if they know," Kandice says with a little concern. "Don't mention it!" Dustin says. Wow, so now we've graduated into advocating dangerous things to happen to other teams. Lovely behavior. Seriously, driving on a flat is not really safe. And you don't really gain anything from not telling them, you know? They're going to have to pull over and fix it anyway. What's the difference if you tell them or don't, except that if they suddenly had to swerve or something, their ability to control the car is compromised if they have a flat and they don't know about it? I'm sure the BQs didn't think this far in advance or mean any harm, but interestingly, I think this is a much more dangerous decision than anybody's failure to pull over and monitor their dealings with the group of guys earlier.
