Phil: Jet/Cord, you're team #2. You're one of the 3 teams racing to the finish for $1,000,000

Dan/Jordan reach cluebox in 3rd, and search for their named stamps.
Louie/Michael reach the cluebox in last as Dan finds Louie's.
Fortunately, Louie isn't there yet.
Stamps, stamps everywhere and all but a couple of 'em are written in Chinese. The ones that are in English are the winners.
Cops arrive.
Dan: Jordan! Keep going! Stop complaining!

How exactly has she proven to be smart?  I don't get it.
By keeping quiet when she found Cord's stamp, thus by not saying anything at all :lol:
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

The pressure is ON for Jordan.
Dan has himself. Finally, they have 1.

The tall cop takes a flashlight and does a quick search through the glass shelf, of the bottoms of the stamps.
Could be clever, if it works.

Jordan is making stupid faces like he's panic stricken.
Dan: We gotta step it up!

Dan/Jordan find the 2nd stamp and GTFO, in 3rd.
Cops left to stew in their own juices as they search under greater pressure.

Michael finds Louie's stamp.
Damn, that took them forever!  It's DARK now. 
And that makes it tougher for the Brothers to find their way in the city.
Michael's stamp!

The Cops are out of there in 4th!

Now, it's about translation and cab rides to see who goes home.

Dan/Jordan get (you guessed it!) a non-English speaking cabbie who has no clue where they need to go.   
And it's not JUST the editing. Their faces are priceless!

Dan/Jordan get out, flummoxed.

Cops got a better cabbie. He took them to near the foot of a monument, and pointed.

FOOTRACE!

Tall Man: Welcome to Shanghai.
Phil: Dan/Jordan, congratulations, you're team #3, and in the final!

Man: Welcome to Shanghai.
Phil: Louie/Michael, you are the last team to arrive.  Really sorry to tell you that you've been eliminated from the Race.
Michael: Best ride of our lives.
Louie: Only Mike could share this with me.  We have this together for the rest of our lives.

NEXT WEEK, ON THE SEASON FINALE OF THE AMAZING RACE:

Phil: After a season full of thrilling moments, emotional highs, and lows (replays of lots of the seasons cenes) ...

It all comes down to Cowboys, a Beauty Queen with something to prove, and Brothers determined to fulfill a dream.

They must scale new heights and explore new galaxies.  (Some kind of hi-tech virtual Star Wars game?  Cool!)  

To win The Amazing Race.

How exactly has she proven to be smart?  I don't get it.

I agree that Caite hasn't exactly proven herself smart, but I have to them some credit for getting a map of Shanghai that has transit routes and tourist locations in English. By not floundering around asking for help to figure out how to get to the temple, they probably saved 20-30 minutes over the other teams.

Oh, exactly. You hit the hammer on the head. The editors are trying to make it look as if Brent & Caite's mere survival is an indicator of Caite's intelligence. But, unfortunately, it isn't conclusive enough for me. Their overall performance has been mediocre, and they have made a number of dumb mistakes that to me simply confirm what I already thought. They appear just as smart at this stage in the race as they did in the beginning. :res:

The editing portrayal of Brent & Caite this leg felt desperate. As if they are taking their last chance to convince us that we should like Brent & Caite. Unfortunately, it didn't work on me.

At least her facial expressions throughout this season have been priceless
