Outside Chez Bulgakov, Toni trots up to the waiting area and gives Starr a total future-mother-in-law hug. The rain is picking up as Ken and Tina arrive at the Road Block and decide Tina will be doing it. Which is just as well, because Ken is in a mood. Before getting started, she wants to get some protection from the rain, and this pneumonia. Nick quietly notes their arrival. Digging windbreakers out of their backpacks, Tina complains that the one she found doesn't have a hood. Ken couldn't possibly give less of a shit, and he tells her to just take it and go as he zips up his own windbreaker, one that I notice has a hood on it. While Nick ducks into a cab in the background, Ken and Tina fall to sniping at each other. This is not going to be a good leg for them.
And you won't believe this -- Ken and Tina's GPS-equipped driver keeps turning up, and now he's driving Nick to the bookstore. In an interview, Nick says, "At this point in the race there are no alliances, so even if stealing their cab sets them back an hour or two hours, that's fine with me." Oh, Nick, stop trying to play the bad-ass. Not only are you totally unconvincing at it, all these hardcore backstabbing moves you keep boasting about are costing the other teams maybe a minute or two. If poaching someone's cab puts them an hour behind, that person doesn't deserve to be in the race in the first place (See also: Frat Boys).
Tina is now outfitted in a hooded pink windbreaker as she's making sure she has the money and passport. "I love you," Ken tries, but she has completely shut down. "Sorry for getting sideways," he adds, but she doesn't even look up as she dismisses him to the designated area. Ken solo-interviews that Tina thinks she's always right: "She puts up a wall and doesn't listen to reason." I don't recall Ken giving a reason for why he's being such a baby today, though, do you?
In the Frat Boy cab, Dan complains, "I don't think we're running a race right now, I think we're getting a tour of Moscow." Oh, quit'cher bitchin'. I never got a tour of Moscow.
Ken arrives at the waiting area, to Starr and Toni's complete lack of surprise. I'm assuming that the production is ferrying them there somehow, since they don't seem to need cab fare.
Dallas has found a statue of Stalin and a statue of Lenin, but he's got the two confused with each other. At the waiting area with Ken and Starr in the background, Toni interviews, "I'm not sure that Dallas knows who Stalin and Lenin are. I mean, I paid a lot of money for his education, but I'm not sure he's going to know how to tell the difference." Funny how Toni keeps going on about how much she paid for Dallas's schooling. I do hope she kept the receipt. Because we now see Dallas continuing to confuse two ex-Soviet leaders who couldn't look less like each other if they tried. At this point, I'm not sure he could tell the difference between Lenin and McCartney.
