Trey & Lexi reach the ice factory and get to watch the big iron machines pull the big blocks of ice and dump them out. It's like a foundry in reverse, somehow. Lexi manages to slide the first block through the pass-through, where Trey scoops it up in his arms, wearing thick rubber elbow-length gauntlets to keep from freezing his arms. "Teamwork makes it dreamwork," Lexi chants, in case you forgot she was a cheerleader.
The twins, with some difficulty and a bit of shouting, find the spot where they're supposed to pick up their barrel of fish. Running a two-by-four through the barrel's handle and hiking it up onto their shoulders, they walk that way to Pasar Ikan Pabean market, drop the barrel off and go back for the second one. "Diva is the opposite of what me and Nadiya are. We're just bad-ass." Nadiya interviews. "The most bad-ass Sri Lankans you will ever meet," Natalie agrees. Indeed, they could probably beat up my son's Montessori teacher. Soon Natalie is hacking away at the ice while Nadiya cheers her on. Shit, now we've seen both of them being supportive, so there goes the method I was planning to use all season to tell them apart. In the meantime, I suspect the MVP for this recap may end up being Nadiya's braid.
Three teams are still at the Roadblock. Or, as Kelley points out to Rob, "David and Glasses and "The Barbies." Kelley, I already told Abbie and Ryan this: I do the team nicknaming around here. Also, you suck at it. "David and Glasses?" What the fuck? Gary gives Will some water, seeing him in growing distress. Caitlin finishes the task, so the blondes are done in eighth place. Gary's trying to calm Will down and the fact that Rob just finished isn't helping. So that leaves Gary and Will in last place, the only team still at the Roadblock and the subtitle says that Will has completed 0 of 8 balloons. That is not good. And as Will narrates that he was having a meltdown, it certainly looks to be the case.
