Jon eventually forces their driver to pull over, gets out with the map, points to it, and says, "Where is this place?" The driver indicates via the international language of pointing. As he gets back in the cab, Jon says, "Hey, homes, you were taking us the wrong direction." And it appears that it was indeed the entirely wrong direction. "We're way behind," Jon comments. "I can't believe this," Kris adds. Me neither. If I believed anyone was getting dumped at the close of this episode, I would totally care.
Commercials. You know, what woman hasn't always wanted Jane Jetson's hair? Or Velma's? GREAT AD.
When we get back, Kris and Jon have taken over the navigating for themselves, and they figure out that they're close. As they hop out, Jon asks Kris how much money to give the guy. "Don't give him anything," she recommends. Interestingly, some people thought she was talking about the tip, some thought the fare...either way, if she actually thought he intentionally drove them in the wrong direction, which I think she did, I can understand the impulse. You can't actually not pay the guy, because you'll get involved in a police situation, and because it's probably wrong, but I don't blame her for not wanting to pay a guy who tried to steal from her. At the very least, he took them when he had no idea where he was going, and he didn't tell them he had no idea where he was going. And that's not great service, really. At any rate, Jon does throw some money in the window, clearly angry, but also in a hurry. Hornio declares itself "almost there" as well.
Hayden is still bitching. Kendra thinks the bar is too long. That must be it. The bar is too long. Exactly the problem.
Kris and Jon still haven't gotten themselves to quite the right spot, so they ask for some directions and get them, finally heading for the actual clue box after quite an ordeal.
Hayden and Aaron are finished with the bricks. "Currently in 1st Place," they get the clue sending them to the pit stop. Phil explains that this involves a three-mile trip to the Peace Hotel South, where they'll motivate their asses to the roof and find the mat. Hayden and Aaron's driver knows where the hotel is, leading to a "Yeeeeahhhhh!" shout from Aaron, complete with arms raised over his head. Mmm, arms. How I have missed swoon-worthy arms.
