Methinks the title has something to do with the Camp Casey tasks.

It's most likely Brooke who says this title. Although every title kind of seems like that, B:)

Presumably a roadblock or detour in Seoul, as the race continues there.

It's is part of the detour..........for the roadblock, they have to wash a tank.

Ninjas could be surrounding a clue box rather than be part of a task. Also could have to do with the Camp Casey tasks.

They look happy and he's dropping his backpack...the stadium is the pitstop, perhaps?

Thats the only reason he would drop his bags like that. By the way, it appears to be the Seoul Sang-am World Cup Stadium

The Ninja's are almost certainly the pick a headband task during the Tae Kwan Do exhibition, in my mind.

If the bridge in the background is the Seungil-gyo bridge, that would mean they are rafting on the Hantangang river at Cheorwon, very close to the DMZ.

The skating task looks like the Mokdong ice rink.

If the yellow rectangle's the clue the teams' probably going to have to break the block for it...
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

They have a Tae Kwon Do challenge! We know from live spoiler info with many Camp Casey tweets at the time.

I'm assuming this is Jill and Thomas, and not Nick and Vicki.

From the preview especially the cap, in which I assume is Thomas and Jill running to the pit stop mat, I see no sign of  Travelocity gnome, so I assume this will be the 1st season in a while without a task related on finding one of the gnomes.
