I wonder if they don't have to wait for the Incense Burner to open because only J/T and C/S are seen there at that time. The HoO hurdle may be somewhere else in the park or before it.

Looks like Thomas, Chad, Nat and Gary starting the climb in #3.

If this is the one you are referring to, I think the ID's are like so. You can see that those two teams are dressed in those outfits from #7 and #8. Also from #5 Kat does the rappelling for them.

Once again that sounds like Chad and Stephanie. It seems like we are getting information overload about them. However, that statement may just be a reiteration of what we already know (about the sleeping and the proposal).

Why does it say "another team" as if one slept in and another proposes when we know both are the same team?
Some quick observations:

The opening shot is the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque in Muscat.
Brooke is driving at night but the RB is in the day.


Possible theory (okay, more like a speculation), teams arrive from flight at night, get clue, but place won't open until morning, but they get to pick numbered order to enter.
A team oversleeps and miss their starting slot, which might be the huge mistake described in the synopsis.

This certainly sounds plausible.

Teams finish Leg 6, Norway to St Petesburg on June 5th in the late evening. After a approx 12 hour pit stop, teams do Leg 7 in St. Petersburg, finishing in early afternoon of June 6,...after another 12 hour pit stop....Teams are released in very early morning (from the screencap in the promo) on June 7th for travel to Muscat, Oman.

As apskip has said, there are hourly flights from LED to either SVO or DME airports in Moscow. The quickest connection from Moscow on June 7th is

DME to DOH
QR869    1450-1855
Then DOH to MCT
QR168    2015-2235

There is a later connection on the same flight path
DME to DOH
QR867    2000-0005 (note: on June 7th this flight was 1.5 hours late in taking off and 1 hour 23 minute in arriving in Doha. On this particular date, teams would have had to wait till approx 8 am on June 8th to get the DOH-Muscat connection.


There are other flights from LED to all over the place (SVO, DME, FRA, CDG, etc) that will connect with
DXB to MCT (early morning June 8th)
EK866     0255-0355.

Even if Chat had overslept...they would still be able to get to Muscat before sunup. I think this leg is pretty fast, with the spoiler sighting of Thomas/Jill in the MCT airport at approx midnight of June8-9 trying for flights to Bangladesh.

This looks like their Elimination Confessional(their Russia II confessional is different). But in Oman, Chad was wearing black and Stephanie was wearing grey (unless they changed attire). Does this hint that they make it to Bangladesh at least?

I'm not sure; it could. Where did you find this cap, I didn't see that shot in the promo.

Since two whole teams are seen climbing the stairs at the Incense Burner, I think that the RB clue is at the top. Once they get to the top one team member must rappel down and the other just goes back down the stairs. This fits with the idea that a Route Info clue from the watch tower directed them to the burner.

They are not climbing the stairs to the Incense Burner. They are climbing the stairs to the Portuguese Watch Tower to get a clue to where to go next, either the detour or RB. That rapelling challenge is not at Riyam Park.



They are climbing the stairs all the way down on the left by the shorter of the two Portuguese Watch Towers. The sidewalk in front of this camera view is where Chad proposes, thanks for the great photo TarJunkie999. The other teams are sitting by the fountain on the right. Car Park is to the far right.

We may have the same thing as in Russia II. They may limit the number of teams that can climb up to the watch tower. Maybe only two teams at a time. One of those pick a number deals when they arrive at Riyam Park.

But would Chad change into dirty clothing (especially since, as of now, there's no indication of any 'dirty' tasks in Oman)? I think you're right about it being from Bangladesh.  :tup:

Well, that's unfortunate.  I really wanted this next episode to be their final one.

Can you get a URL for this video now? The bandana that Stephanie has around her neck, she had wrapped around her head when Chad does the proposal thing. It looks like the CBS webmonkeys posted an video one leg to soon. I have looked but I cannot find that video.

Here is the clip, but do remember that future confessionals are not infrequently used on TAR.

Whose was it that we saw from the final leg a while back? ??? They are often helpful in pinpointing locations.

The caps I am the most interested in are 5 and 6. Any ideas on what they are in? (Forget my FF idea, Claire is holding a Detour clue.) Maybe #'s 9 and 10 are from the other detour choice.

If I was to hazard a guess, I would say one of the blue trucks seen through the window in those caps.
