This leg was a great one, but more because of the drama thatn the tasks themselves. Having said that, the Detour was amazingly difficulyt, while the Roadblock was just a dumbed-down version of the notorious locks from Xian in TAR6.
But this episode was amazing because of the drama - firstly with the flight delays, the missing of the plane and a trailing alliance forming, and secondly with the *** mishap that always just seems to happen.
Quite bizarre that three teams have lots their ***s but two of them have occurred in Russia. (over the course of the entire series)
And I love the 'To-Be-Continued' without half the teams even checking in! That should act as a great cliffhanger, and I can't wait to see the next episode!
A really exciting episode packed with drama! The Detour was also great, while the Roadblock was underwhelming. Overall, definitely the best one of the season, but that's not really saying much.
