Out on the street, Abba explains to us that they've contacted the U.S. embassy to look into new passports and they've done everything they can do for now. James interviews that he's always admired Abba's thirst for exploration, which he says sets him apart in their industry: "I can't find any rock musicians that I travel with that even really want to get out of bed half the time." Walking back up the street on their way back to the Pit Stop, James says, "Let's go say goodbye to Phil."
After the godawful two days they've had, Team Grabbie and the goat farmers finally walk up to the mat and jump onto it as close to simultaneously as they can possibly manage, while the accordionist finishes with a big fanfare. "Tough day?" Phil asks, like, derr. Then he says, "Abbie & Ryan? Josh & Brent? I have some good news. There is still a team out there struggling on the course. So Abbie and Ryan, you are team number four." Abbie and Ryan stand there with their mouths open in shock as Phil tells Josh and Brent that they're team number five. Even with their four-hour penalty? So I guess that means either that we've either given up on Team Metal or something else. And it's not that Phil forgot, as he reminds Josh & Brent, "The bad news is you have a four-hour penalty for not completing the Detour. And that four-hour penalty will be assessed at the start of the next leg." Nice of Phil to let them go to bed rather than making them wait it out on one of the benches right here, right now. They interview after the leg that they can't believe they're still in the race and they know they have a lot of catching up to do. "It's almost impossible." For them, maybe.
Some time later, James and Abba stand just off the mat, as though in recognition of the fact that they can't officially complete the leg. Phil tells them they're officially the last team to arrive. But it gets even weirder, because it's actually a non-elimination leg, which means they're still in the race. But! Only if they find their passports, which tells us right away that there's going to be a second Moscow leg. Oh, and plus they have a Speed Bump ahead of them in the next leg, not to pile on or anything. "Are you telling us we have another shot? James asks Phil. "I'm telling you that your race is not over until it's over," Phil says. "Until you get to a point where you need to produce your passport in order to continue racing." They can't believe it. "Find that cabdriver, make him the Speed Bump," Abba cracks. Phil repeats, "It ain't over till it's over." We'll see about that.
