When we return, Hornio finally snags a cab (whew!) and gets in, as a lot of locals stare with apparent amusement. And, probably, horror at El Hornio's hair. Seriously, it's hard to remember anymore that those horns are still new to a lot of people. Remember how scary you thought they were at first? Right. Meanwhile, Kris and Jon are still stuck in traffic, where Kris is fretting that with the Yield ahead, Freddy and Kendra are likely to hit them with it if they get the chance. "But our cab driver is our worst nightmare," she offers, in a line that certainly sounds like it has a clunky cut between "is our" and "worst nightmare," so I'm not sure she actually said anything quite that rude.
In the Nuance cab, Freddy is explaining that while he and Kendra considered using the Yield strategically against Kris and Jon, because they're a stronger team, they've ultimately decided to employ it spitefully instead, figuring that Hornio is deserving of "payback." Oh, and in the Hayden/Aaron cab, she's saying that Nuance should wait for her and Aaron next time, because they had such a bad time getting a cab. And why would they do that? And how would it help? She's such a goofball.
Freddy and Kendra get out by the base of the tower and start hunting around for the clue. Hayden and Aaron arrive next, and then we watch as Freddy and Kendra step on the Yield mat first. Phil reminds us how one team can make another team stop and stand around for a while. But you can only use it once, so you have to choose carefully. And he totally appropriates "most advantageous to go for it" from the old Fast Forward patter, and that's just lazy. And it makes me nostalgic. ["He also 'appropriated' some of his poorly-fitted pants from a previous season for this episode. Boo, wardrobe." -- Sars] At the mat, Freddy equivocates about whom to Yield, saying that they might be better off Yielding Kris and Jon, but Kendra pulls Hornio's picture and smacks it on the board. Neither Nuancer makes any effort to justify the Yield here as anything but revenge, so at least their motives are clear. And in fact, in the Hornio cab, Rebecca already knows this is likely. Anything that can make Kendra seem like she does things on purpose and can make Rebecca seem like she understands what's going on is certainly worthwhile, I suppose.
Kris and Jon's cab is still not moving, and she suggests getting out and running, but he's not sure where they'd even go. It seems like they still don't entirely know where they're supposed to wind up.
