"Who's good at solving mysteries, literally?" Nick reads from the clue, and Starr nominates him. "The non-participating team member must wait in the designated area," Nick further reads, so it looks like they're splitting up for now. It's starting to spit down rain as Nick hikes past a statue of a bare-breasted female archer, muttering, "That's not Stalin or Lenin." Well, he's off to a strong start.
Toni and Dallas are still en route in their cabs. Tina's idly wondering why the traffic is only bad in the direction they're going. Ken is annoyed by her very existence right now. Dude, what went on between these two at that Pit Stop?
The Frat Boys have already arrived at Park Iskusstv. How did that happen? And why does it look so different from where Nick is? We'll find out soon. Hint: it's not good news for the Frat Boys.
Nick is narrating his own tour of the museum, remarking on Lenin's moustache and Stalin's head of hair and bigger nose. Sixty years ago, that would have gotten him purged.
Toni and Dallas arrive at the clue box and after reading that this Road Block is about solving a mystery, Dallas looks expectantly at his mom. Unfortunately, she's totally wiped out just from the dash to the park. She leans on her knees and pants, "Oh, Dally, you do it." And right there, not to be a spoiler or anything, is where they lose the race. Really, asking Dallas to be the brains of the operation, even for one task, is like expecting Toni to schlep 2,500 pounds of flour. It may seem like a small mistake now, but it's the first in what will become a cascading series of them. And here's the second: Toni gives Dallas the Amazing Purse and heads off to the "designated area." Once he's on his own, Dallas is not off to a great start: "I have no clue who this statue's of," he says. Well, if it's not one of two specific people, then move on.
