In a funny sequence, as James and Tyler are leaving the cafÃ© after deciding to switch Detours, the *lyns get there, and one of them notes that the boys appear to be pointing. They conclude that Tyler and James must have thought they were Rob and Kim, which I would think was exactly right, except that as soon as James saw them, he said, "There's Bama." It's not clear whether Tyler pointed before James said it, or what. I wish that had been a bit clearer, I must say. James says as they head for the olives that he likes to "battle it out" at a Detour someone else is also at. He's going to get more of it, because the *lyns are taking the olives. Karlyn says she was an art major, and she's thrown pots, and "it's not easy." I concur. It is one of four thousand or so things that went on in art class that I was no good at. You should have seen my efforts to draw a person. They were... "abstract" I think it's fair to say. Meanwhile, the BQs are saying that they just need to stay ahead of "them," whoever "they" are. The A(AM!)s talk about how surprised they are that the *lyns are so close behind, and that apparently "the Yield didn't do anything." It's a fair point. In the car, Lyn says she thinks it's a little funny that they're still there, but she doesn't want to wind up with "a false sense of security." She has a point. And I think she's just about the first person I've ever seen on reality television (hyperbole alert!) fretting over the danger of a false sense of security rather than just embracing one.
Rob and Kim get their tire changed by a couple of helpful locals. Kim just hopes they can catch up. The BQs, meanwhile, have absolutely no map, but they're sure that there will be "signs to Ourzazate." They zing right by Rob and Kimberly, who are a little put off that they didn't even slow down to ask or give any help at all. I'm not really surprised, nor do I think they had any obligation to do that, but I certainly understand the frustration when you're at the place Rob and Kim are at. Rob interviews that the BQs can't be trusted, and I kind of can't imagine what kind of trust he has in mind. But... okay. When the A(AM!)s come by, Tyler does hang his head out the window and explain to Rob and Kim where they'll find the cafÃ©, and that they'll next have to head for the Detour. The *lyns pass, and they're happy to be ahead of the Pointies, too. At last, said Pointies get going again, with Kimberly playing the part of spaz-wrangler. At the cafÃ©, they initially decide to do the pottery, but they realize that they want to catch up to the other teams, so they decide to chase them to the olives. I'm not sure why, since they were told that it was first-come, first-served to the three available stations, you know?
