Episode Summary

Hanging by a Line
Ellen attempts to bond with Sophia, but Sophia isn't into it. She tells Ellen that she has to trust someone to be close to them. The other Road Rulers think that Sophia and Ellen have more in common than anyone else on the team, but the two girls don't see that. Meanwhile, the Road Rulers are faced with one of their most difficult missions to date. They must each convince a stranger to bungee jump with them in tandem within six hours. The tricky part is that the total age of the six strangers much be at least 300, which means the average age of each stranger must be 50. On top of that, they are looking for these strangers in a quaint village town in rural Spain. Ellen takes control and really pulls through for the team on this mission. She is the first to find a bungee partner and also tries to help her teammates find partners. The funny thing is that the guys all find 50ish women to jump with and the girls find older men. Sophia is the last to find a partner. At the last minute, she finds a man in his sixties who is willing to jump. As they prepare to leap off the platform, Sophia chickens out and grabs the railing. The man jumps without her, jerking Sophia off the platform. They end up flailing around like rag dolls--a scary sight, but luckily, everyone is ok. Back at the bus, Sophia and Ellen have a heart-to-heart talk about their fear of being rejected by their families because of choices they have made. They both end up in tears, and are surprised to learn how similar their situations are. Sophia concludes by saying that she does care for Ellen after all.moreless
