For "Under Fire," they have to crawl across a muddy field, staying low under barbed wire for a hundred yards. Then a French soldier in a machine-gun nest will hand them a message. Not to spoil it, but we get a glimpse at said message, which reads, "The war is over. Vive la liberté." They will then have to crawl back with the message the way they came, again staying under the barbed wire even though the war is supposedly over. At the end of both Detours, the teams will attach their messages to a homing pigeon, "who will deliver the news to headquarters that the war is over." Those pigeons can fly all the way back to the CBS home office in New York City? Impressive range.
Michael and Louie's Morse code is a little rusty, so they're doing "Under Fire." They don't fail to notice that the bottom of the clue reads, "Caution: U-Turn Ahead!" They go into a tent to change into their uniforms, which Louie finds to be tight. I think we know who got the lion's share of that baguette. "Let's just get through that field, buddy," Michael says, looking pretty impressive in the uniform, wide-brimmed helmet, and assorted gear hanging from him in every possible way, and even a rifle in his hand. I assume it's a replica, or else there aren't enough time penalties in the world to prevent teams (and possibly even some partners) from taking each other out. They're off to the battlefield.
Heading into the village, Carol and Brandy are right behind the Cowboys, and Dan and Jordan are right behind them. "Five bucks says it's inside it," Jet says as they get their baguette in fourth place. Cord gives him his props. They try to open the little plastic clue-pouch in the car while Dan and Jordan get their clue in fifth, followed by Carol and Brandy in sixth, who, to compensate for their unimpressive ranking, at least have better French.
