We're back in the Estonian capital of Tallin. "Not well known to Americans," Phil says, giving us a pass on our geographical ignorance, "this former Soviet Republic gained its independence in 1991." But right now we're more interested in the giant mud bog outside the city that served as the ninth Pit Stop. And I feel I should take back my crack from a couple of weeks ago about how impressive the Pit Stops always are. Clearly I had no way of knowing that the racers would apparently spend one rest period in a giant wooden cable spool upended in a swamp. Meghan and Cheyne, having arrived first, are leaving at 12:00 AM. The clue tells them they're flying to Prague ("over seven hundred miles," Phil says, like they're going to have to bike it). Once they get there, they need to find the city's old town square, and find a man in a Praga. What's a Praga, you ask? Well, the clue doesn't say this, but it's a "vintage Czech convertible." Cheyne reads from the clue that for this leg, they have zero dollars (the Shaft!), and off they go. While they wander around in search of the parking lot, looking for taxis by headlamp, we see an interview in which Cheyne may be attempting to undo the jinx he just called down on them at the mat last week. He claims they're not looking at winning it all yet. "Our goal and our vision is to make it to the top three," he says modestly. As for the million dollars, "We're not there yet." They get in a taxi and send their driver to the airport, then get started early on their next challenge which is to wonder what a vintage Praga is. So far they're knocking this leg out of the park.
Sam, leaving at 12:19 with Dan, is completely stoked about going to Prague. Nice to see he's not jaded, even after nine legs, even after midnight. AS they run for the cabs, Dan asks Sam about Prague, if they speak Spanish there, and where it is. Sam is not entirely polite about showing off his superior world knowledge: "Prague? It's a country," he says, displaying his world knowledge. Sam interviews that they are now officially rivals with the Globetrotters, especially after last week's kerfuffle. There's a flashback to that awkward moment on the mat, but they're too excited about being in the final four to be thinking about it as they get in their cab. Besides, they'll have a fresh feud to deal with by this time tomorrow.
Flight Time and Big Easy are, unsurprisingly, leaving at 12:20 AM. And Big Easy interviews that they talked to the brothers. "Everything's cool. Nothing personal." Well, thanks for wasting our time, then, show. Flight Time adds that they have to respect the brothers for getting to the final four. Well, by that logic, I would have to also respect Dan and Andrew, and obviously that's not going to happen.
