Thank you to all those who provided as-viewed-or-just-after reports of this episode. I want to add a few things that I haven't seen in print yet:
Pitstop release times were:
Now, when teams were sent to deliver the purchased fish, what we are seeing is a bunching point designed to almost get Ida/Tania into the game. Sam and Vince reached there soon after 6am. They stated "it will be 8 hours until this (hours of operation)" starts. Their arithmetic obviously wasn't working well with no calculator provided because those hours were 11am to 7pm. The next 3 other teams would get there between about 710am and 740am. Ida/Tania should have been able to get there well before 11am, but they did not. Why? Does anybody know?
Vince/Sam on hearing of the yielding of Bernie/Henry talked about a team that was their big "competitor". It seems to me in that context that they were referring to Bernie/Henry, but there is a slight chance they meant Geoff/Tisha. Bernie came down from the Macau Tower calling herself Lara Croft Tower Raider; I thought that was cute. The task there was to climb up protected inside from the 61st to 77th floor, then be outside the rest of the way up. Something in the background mentioned 150 steps. Neither Fuzzie nor Tania had to do the outside part because of the deterioration of the weather and lightning. They just got their clues and missed having to do some significant climbing.
The DETOUR was titled CHANCE or DANCE. If it were me, unless I was a poor dancer I would have taken the DANCE option because you have complete control over your own fate. CHANCE is the random luck-based option. Besides changing to costumes that took longer than changing to the Lion Dance costume, the Blackjack-playing teams would on average take 18 hands to reach 9 wins. At maybe one minute per hand, plus a 2 minute offset for the costume difference, playing Blackjack takes 20 minutes. The Lion Dance was significantly quicker for Geoff and Tisha.
Based on the darkness, all the pitstop times are going to come in after 6pm and I think Ida/Tania will be in the neighborhood of 7pm. They made up a lot of time due to the hours of operation.
