Natalie and Nadiya get to the Roadblock, take one look at the clue and bust out the Express Pass. They interview afterwards that they were both like, "Hell no," in unison. They head off to the dancing Detour, confident that they made a smart move. But dammit, without a Roadblock, how the hell am I going to know which of them is which for the rest of this episode?
After watching some more locals dance, James hobbles back out on the floor with Jaymes and they do well enough to get a clue, possibly more out of sympathy than anything else. Hugs all around and then we cut to Jaymes sitting on the floor opening their clue while, next to him, a medic tries to pull James's boot off to examine his injured ankle while James croaks in agony. Good thing there's nothing left for them to do this leg but find "Sokolniki Park," which Phil says is "an expansive, forested fairground." In fact, those are the woods he was coming to us from earlier. You don't often see carnival rides in among the trees like this, possibly because people don't generally care to get smacked in the face by a leaping squirrel while trying to enjoy the trapeze ride. "And hidden in this urban oasis, a public performance pavilion," Phil sentence-fragments. That would be the Pit Stop. Standing on the stage that, despite being pretty colorful, is a rinky-dink little dump, Phil warns, "The last team to check in here may be eliminated." Back at the hotel, James drags himself over to where he and Jaymes can change clothes, hoping to win their first leg ever. Because he could clearly use a new one.
Trey & Lexi do their dance routine not well, but well enough and they exit the hotel in second place, right behind the Chippendales. Team Austin heads over to the hotel limo stand, while Jaymes hails a cab and asks the driver to call another one for Team Austin, only to not see Trey & Lexi around. "Guys, we can't help each other if you run off." So the Ja/mses head out, still hoping for first place. Natalie and Nadiya show up at the hotel, but they're having their driver wait so Trey & Lexi can't take him. But they quickly get another cab anyway. "We can still get first," Trey says. Only if you end up in a footrace with Gimpy Spice.
Natalie and Nadiya are soon in uniform and trying to learn the dance, but Natalie splits her pants... twice. With edited-in sound effects and all. Well, now I can tell them apart, at least.
