I don't think you'll be chasing me around the castle anytime soon Gman..
Ah, now Puddin' you have me thinkin' which is bad. But before I was distracted by visions of wenches running buck nakkid around my castle all goon poof, I'll get back to a final somewhat thin final summary.
Four teams finally make it to the pit stop in Barcelona, Spain, but one is later than the others so is Philiminated! Bye, Bye Beauties, see you on AR AS.
The three remaining teams, T/J, R/K, and Bama have a mandatory 12-hour rest, etc. etc. and then leave between 12Midnight and 1:30AM for the airport to catch a plane to CDG Paris. "Oh, boy we are going to Paris" "Where's that?" "France!" So all three teams travel by cab through the early hours of the morning to the Barcelona Airport. Only to find that they all have to wait until 6:00AM to catch flight VY5001 which will arrive in CDG at 7:50AM
Arriving in Paris, the teams must take the RER into the city and find the structure built in 1899 to impress vistors to the Universal Exhibition. That's the Tour Eiffel, of course. The nearest RER station is at Champ de Mars/Tour Eiffel, but this entails a switch of lines from Blue to Yellow at Saint-Michael/Notre Dame.
Once at the Champ de Mars/Tour Eiffel station they must walk two blocks along the Seine River embankment to the Eiffel Tower; there they must proceed to the Second Level to locate their clue. R/K leave the station but turn to walk up Avenue de Suffren from which angle they can not see the tower at all. At the corner of Rue Jean Rey they meet someone to steer them down Avenue Octave Greard.
When the teams arrive at the second level they find a clue which directs them Gare St-Lazare to catch a train to Caen (one hour and 45minutes).
Once in Caen they must take a cab to a local flying club and find the ROADBLOCK: To recreate the famous 101st Airborne pre-dawn jump into Normandy before the DDay invasion. One member of each team must make the 12,000 foot drop (the 101st did it from 600 feet!) while the other member of the team rides along for the thrill. We see Tyler, Kim and Karlyn making the jump.
When they land on the beach in Normandy they are told to make their way back to Caen and take the first train back to Gare St. Lazare. Here it is not clear whether they have to go somewhere else or go directly to CDG and book the fisrt available flight to NEW YORK CITY (DRUM ROLL!!) "We're going home, we're going home!!"
In any case we will have a typical TAR bunching at CDG as all three teams finally make it onto Delta (Airfrance) flight 8600 departing at 8:25AM. Do we have some more last minute hold the door, please for me? Who knows
Arriving in JFK, New York, at about noon after clear customs, etc., teams must take cabs into Manhattan and search for "a News Tower". Bama jumps the line and takes a Newark registered cab and heads for Rockefeller Center the "tower" home of NBC. Now why would a CBS program be sending teams to NBC? Anyway this aint the place . Or could it be the "Black Tower" at 485 Madison Avenue, the home of CBS?. Or, finally could it be the News Tower on 42nd Street (former home of The Daily News)? The other teams have gone there directly. So Bama may also end up here after the other two.
Now we may have a huge gap! We have not had a DETOUR yet, so are the teams told to cab it up the West Side of the Hudson to West Point. Do we have some last minute Detour choice of tasks? or do we have the teams head directly up the East side of the Hudson to the Saint Basil Academy the site of the largest and final mat. Or do they do the DETOUR at West Point and then are told to take a cab back across the river to Staint Basil which is almost directly across the from West Point?
In recent TARs there has been one final task which has never been hinted at or revealed just before the final jump upon the matt.
So who completes the DETOUR and arrives first. Puddin knows but she ain't talkin.
So be it.
