Okay, so this is another instance of don't try and stray too far from your pack.
Ernie and Cindy and Amani and Marcus gained time at the Roadblock when Jeremy and Sandy figured out their clue with all the three teams cab drivers, thus when they travel to the rooster place, they're barely behind by just a few minutes.
Then, the coincidence came again when Marcus and Amani decided to slow down at the dancers and looked for the clue until the other two teams arrived, where Jeremy and Sandy who didn't catch the words on the dancer's dress, drew it out and ran off to the cab. Amani and Marcus and Ernie and Cindy got the same Baboa thing as the snowboarders.
THEN, while Jeremy and Sandy were travelling to the pitstop, the other two teams obviously do not know what to do.. then their cab drivers called one another and brought all three teams to the same location, almost at the same time, and with all three teams at the pitstop, it was really a crazy party.
I think the Roadblock is scary, but not really iconic or Panama. More like a dare task which can be done in any country in the world. The view isn't that great anyway.
The Detour... I didn't know what Amani and Marcus were supposed to do. I was so damn confused by them just carrying all the seafood that they've got to different stalls. And the making of the sandals could be done in any other country in the world too.
But thank God of the unexpected circumstances, this episode didn't become a snooze-fest with the strongest team Andy and Tommy winning the 7th leg and the weakest team Amani and Marcus eliminated.
Not one of the best episodes.... but certainly the most entertaining pitstop results/exciting (if you do not know spoilers) since the 3 teams checked in together in TAR 9 Final 4 NEL 1. (BJ and Tyler NEL-ed)
