mswood what's your feed?
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

This is like a Survivor challenge on steroids. Dan leads Jordan, but Jordan has trouble following directions.
He has to turn around so Dan can see where to lead him to.
Cool challenge!  
Jordan keeps f*cking up the picture by going too far, beyond what he's instructed to.
Jordan: GIVE ME GOOD DIRECTIONS!


Jet/Cord arrive at the Yoda statue.

Cord has to get serious now and lead Jet.   
He does better than Dan. 1 step, 2 ...
Dan tells Jordan he can "see the goal now."
The two of them almost run into each other on the course.   
Dan has to read this wacko message on the screen now. Words swirling everywhere.

Meanwhile, Brent descends Coit Tower with the Yoda clue.

Dan makes a discovery: Jordan spins and the words become readable.
Jet is right there, too ... a step or two away from Jordan.
Jet: I'm not going to move until Jordan moves. (Not wanting to run into him.)
Cord: THIS IS FREAKING STAR WARS! TAKE HIM OUT, MAN!

Jordan: I'm so dizzy! I'mma throw up!
Cord: You might wanna watch out. You can't go around him. 
Jet: He's fixin to start turning around again.  He's spinning in circles.
Dan: I'm doing it.
Dan starts writing words down.  Perhaps they repeat?
Cord directs Jet another 2 steps. They're literally touching shoulders now.
Jet takes the 5 steps forward.
Something about "cooled by the ocean winds" is what Dan is seeing. 
Now Dan thinks he has it.
Jordan: Thank God!  I was going to throw up!

Dan: A long time ago on a hill ... TONGA.
Phil: One of the first tiki bars in the US, the Tonga Room.

Jet/Cord can see the spinning sentence now.

Brothers in a taxi going to the Tonga Bar.

Brent: Step! Left! No, right!   

Cord is having trouble with the words.  Spinning too fast to write down.

Cab drops brothers at the Tonga Bar.
CLUE: Take a trunk to your next destination.

Cord finally realizes that Jordan was spinning to help Dan read the words.

Brent sees the clue now, too. 
Catie and Jet are spinning around.

Meanwhile, Dan gets directions from a local to the music hall.
They trundle the trunk on foot.

Brent has caught up to Cord.
They all pretty much leave together for the Tonga club. 
Jet/ Cord still has a slight lead.

HOLD EVERYTHING!   
Brent/Caite have to go back inside of Lucasfilm!!


Jet/Cord arrive at Tonga Room.
They take a heavy-ass trunk and head off.
They find a local cabbie to ask.
Dan/Jordan have to put theirs down, having carried it too far already.
Jordan bitches about his shin being hurt by the trunk.
Dan: The trunk is getting heavy.

Music Hall sign overhead ... guitars blaring ...
Dan/Jordan, CLUE. Get yourselves in order.
Phil: To get their final clue, teams must flash back to the age of Aquarius. In the trunk, 8 psychedelic posters for each eliminated team, and 3 for each non-elim, have to be put up in order.

Well think about it, it really wasn't until season 9 that we got a seriously difficult mental test.  Then we had one for season 12,13, 14.  Most season haven't had any real mental test in the final episode.  Hell one season just had a train race to the Pit Stop as the finale task in the final city.

At least we got a memory challenge. I'd take this over S6's pizza and S10's drive around the city or S15's count chips any day!

Okay, 10 minutes or less to go.

Jet/Cord put up posters as Dan/Jordan run.
Jordan comes up with an idea: Pay someone to get out of a taxi.

Jet/Cord get CLUE and head for CANDLESTICK.

Jordan sees a taxi. They're in.
Jet tells Cord to find a taxi and they're in.

TAXI RACE TO CANDLESTICK.
