Episode Summary

Handsome Reward
When we last saw Josh, Holly, and Sarah at the top of Snake Island waiting for the helicopter, a Renegade was running towards them. Will they get caught and say "buh-bye" to everything they've worked for? What is the handsome reward? Where have the Renegades taken the captured Abe and Brian and the dognapped Menudo? Can this really be their last mission? It's time to find out in the exciting conclusion of Road Rules Latin America!!! As the Renegade makes a grab for Holly, she's worked too hard to give up now. She holds on to her red flag while Sarah banishes him with an "I see you!" Finally the chopper arrives and Josh, Sarah, and Holly jump on board as a band of Renegades make a final run for them. But it's too late -- our triumphant threesome is safe in the air and on the way to their handsome reward. Once they land, they run to their captured comrades sitting next to a large camouflaged mound and free Abe, Brian, and little Menudo from their blindfolds and bindings. Wasting no time, the five pull away the tarp and reveal their reward: a shiny new Volkswagen Bug! Victory is sweet as the gang explores the car inside and out. They find a bottle of champagne and glasses and a final message telling them that they each get a new VW and directions to their final night in San Jose. They make a bittersweet toast to Gladys, wishing she could have been there to share in the moment. The roadies arrive at the posh resort of Melia Cariari in San Jose and are shown to the presidential suite, which is outfitted with a sauna and Jacuzzi. Abe and Holly go for a swim and outdoor Jacuzzi while Josh prepares a five-man bubble bath in the suite's Jacuzzi. Josh gets naked and talks Sarah and Holly into jumping in. Safe under the suds, they remove their suits and are soon joined by Abe and Brian in the buff. Celebrating their first (and last) nude group soak, Josh does a dance with only a Road Rules shield covering his, uh, assets. All cleaned – and dressed -- up, it's time for their final dinner. They have the whole restaurant to themselves to enjoy their last night together and share memories of their trip. They wish they could get a hold of Gladys and remember some of their special memories of her on the road. They talk of their favorite missions and Abe and Holly look back on their relationship and realize that it really was never meant to be more than "just friends." Brian surprises everyone when he admits that he thought he would hook up with Holly at Copper Canyon -- and Holly agrees! But Brian has an even bigger surprise for the group… For the first time, and with only hours left before they leave, Brian tells them that the trip has left emotional scars. Everyone is stunned, confused, and blown away by his confession that he felt left out in many ways. Seeing that his admission has burst the dinner's celebratory bubble, Brian tries to put a positive spin on everything by explaining how much he's grown from being with the group and ends the moment asking everyone to hold hands. All good things must come to an end… and so it does for our Latin American travelers at the airport. The tears, hugs, farewells, and promises to talk soon begin to flow when Holly is the first to depart. She leaves behind notes to her best buds Sarah and Josh, which they read in private. Abe and Menudo are next, and then Brian wings his way home. Finally, only Josh and Sarah are left to remember some of the great times they all shared… until they too must say "adios" and go their separate ways. from MTV.commoreless
