Another recap-let saved for posterity:
Another unlovely leg unfolds as a rush through a gate leads to a couple of bumped heads and an explosion of temper from Freddy that has not been hinted at until now. You know it’s getting bad when Jonathan is telling you to calm down. It turns out that water polo isn’t very hard, but spicy soup is extraordinarily difficult, and may just wind up in a puddle under your chair if you’re not careful. But seriously — don’t puke it back into the bowl, because that is really disgusting.
Jonathan does some more out-of-control screeching at Victoria, actually getting substantially worse if such a thing is possible, while Kris and Jon continue to rise above absolutely everything and Aaron begins to look like the dark horse contender for Funniest Racer of the Season.
Oh, and Lori and Bolo catch up in the first few minutes, so that was a big nothing, and they really did just make a double leg with no mat in the middle. Gus and Hera, meanwhile, choose the slower Detour option again and lag behind for most of the leg. They’re lovely, but they’re done.
Yeah, rats, they’re done. At least there are still some teams I like or can tolerate, in addition to the one(s) I can’t stand.
But for now, bedtime.
