Once they've passed the Yield, Freddy and Kendra hit the regular clue box, which reveals a Roadblock. And...to whoever decided that putting Phil in a black harness over his white pants was a good idea? Not so much. It's a little bit not-that-subtle, kind of one step above a big sign with a red arrow pointing to his crotch, all, "LOOK HERE." Anyway, harness-wearing Phil explains that the Roadblocker here has to get to the top of a 40-story skyscraper and lower herself on a window-washing chair to a marked window, wash the glass with a squeegee, and take note of the message that is uncovered when the window is washed. Then they'll lower themselves to the ground, pass on the message to the "supervisor," and get their clue. Freddy immediately tells Kendra that she's going to have to do it, and she explains as they get in a taxi to the correct tower that she wants to face her big fears, and this will be a great opportunity, since she totally hates heights. Not an approach that ever makes sense to me, the intentionally doing things that you hate, but...okay. "This will be no problem for you," Freddy assures her. Well, if your boyfriend says it, it must be true. That's what I always say.
Next ones to the clue box are Hayden and Aaron. She looks at the sign showing Hornio Yielded and calls out, "HEH heh!" Certainly is smug for a girl who cried in a tree last week. What's more, she herself balks at the task, and Aaron takes over, not sounding too pleased about it. Yeah, if you're going to refuse to do the big-strong-person stuff, and you're also going to refuse to do the heights, and you're also going to refuse to do the eating...you're putting your team in a bit of a spot. ["But that spot is not The Bra Store." -- Sars]
The Kris and Jon cab is still technically on its way, although it's not clear anymore whether there is any "way" involved, or if there is, that they are actually on it. At some point, this is going to stop being a cab ride and become a pilgrimage of some sort.
Hornio, however, shows up at the site while Hayden and Aaron are heading into the tower. Because they ran and Nuance got a cab, Hayden and Aaron have now worked themselves into first place. When Hayden spots Hornio skulking around and looking for the clue box, she hides behind a potted plant. Heh. Okay, that's a little funny, if only because she's lucky she weighs six pounds and is four feet tall, or she totally wouldn't fit back there. At her first opportunity, she flees the actual scene of the Roadblock, hoping not to tip off Hornio. Freddy and Kendra do finally arrive at the tower, but Freddy laments getting a cab, which took them to the back of the building, instead of just walking over there. Kendra heads up in the elevator into which Aaron so recently disappeared.
