I think that the Detour could be BAKE or BIKE.   

In reply #110 we have a quick shot of Michael and Louie walking eating BAGETTES the world famous French Bread a staple of every Frenchman's diet (along with wine, of course.)

In replys #106 and #107 we seem to have scenes of two different BIKE riders symbolic of the world famous bike race THE TOUR DE FRANCE.  Spec is that one team is Steve and Allie the other being Jordan and Jeff.

So the detour represents two famous French activities BAKE or BIKE

Is this what you think might be a baguette, G-Man? When I brighten it, I wonder if it could be what I was calling rolls of plans? Although here, it almost looks like something rolled in cloth and tied at the end (look at the one over the shoulder). But not sure about a baguette...

I thought maybe Louie was quoting from "Apocalypse Now," but the original line is "I love the smell of napalm in the morning."


He is paraphrasing.  Sulfur was the gas of choice during WWI.  Really horrible stuff.



As I recall the gas of choice in WWI was Chlorine Gas not sulfur.  The other gas which was used mostly by the Germans was Mustard Gas which was much harder to protect against.



Sulpur mustard was the chemical agent used in shells.  The sulpur provided the distinctive odor.  Thus, Louie's statement.






Would anyone care to guess what the prime component of mustard gas is? If you guessed chlorine you are correct. Mustard gas is synthesized by treating sulfur dichloride with ethylene:

    SCl2 + 2 C2H4 → (ClCH2CH2)2S

Could the mustache be part of bike uniform task? No one is seen wearing one in the battle vidcaps.

Maurice Garin was the "1st winner" of the Tour de France in 1903 - He was known as well for his handlebar mustache.  (I'm having a hard time linking shortcuts to websites today)

I don't know if it was planned "foreshadowing", but in Ep. 4 the teams had to find a statue of Kaiser Wilhelm in Hamburg - the grandfather of the notorious Kaiser Wilhelm II (Kaiser Bill) of WW1 - also know for his mustache...

Do we see Jordan and Jeff in the trenches?  I could only see Jordan, then they flip to Jeff standing around by himself.  Maybe the trench is the roadblock?

I see unknown racer (face obscured) behind Jordan, visible over her shoulder is partial yellow clue, gun, and hat.

So... The chateau as a HoO, and the Detour as Morse Code versus Crawl, both to get the message "the war is over, people are libertÚs vive la libertÚ"? (Doh!)

We need to go back and see if we can get anything out of the Morse code at the beginning of the 'The year... 2010' promo! I think the first letter is ". _ _ ." 'P'?

The trenches are a detour choice? And morse code as the other task?

It looks more like an envelope that a baguette. I believe the detour is Trench or Intelligence. Trench requires a team to crawl through a trench and watch out for "snipers" kind of like the TARA3 roadblock. Intelligence requires a team to do something related to Morse Code...
