James & Abba are team #4, but they need their passports. They cannot check in. Phil says they need to produce the passports. :stare

TO BE CONTINUED? ARE YOU KIDDING ME. :res:

I wonder if they had to TBC it because team #1 will be released before someone is eliminated, a la TAR10.

We could either see one team gets eliminated in the middle of episode next week, which is really bad :res:

OR this leg is NEL, so there will be Speed Bump.

Next week on The Amazing Race...

The rockers search for their passport. James (of the Chips) feels the pressure. He's doing some sort of routine in a military outfit? He's sweating a lot. Ryan is put to the test. He's writing something with a pencil and paper, and there's a studious-looking guy (clue-giver?) who keeps rejecting him? Seems like the roadblock.

Well, we don't know whether leg 7 is or is not an elimination. But I don't think we'll be leaving Moscow without an NEL.

The detour, both sides of it, were hilarious. The swim coach was excellent as a judge, she did seem to be very consistent about what she would accept.

What a good episode tonight!

I wish they would have just eliminated whoever and just ended the leg. There is honestly no reason to span the leg into next episode. We don't need to see the unabridged version of James & Abba search for their passports.

In the preview, it looked like Ryan will be doing a court case mystery Roadblock.

:cheer: I love the military "cheerleading" routine bit.  :cheer:  :lol3:

I wonder if this leg was originally planned to be a keep racing leg or an actual TBC leg but production decided not to because of the missed flight.

Even better, a special 90-minute episode. You do have a point there though.

Having to use the Cyrillic alphabet to do that task was a real b****. I was familiar with that as I took one course in Russian one summer, and that would have been enough not to be so intimidated by it. But I will say, Trey and Lexi did a really good job figuring out how to use the old-fashioned card catalog to work the task, even though they did not know what sounds most of the Cyrillic alphabet represented, and the order of letters in that alphabet. Trey also did a really good job figuring out that roadblock as well, figuring out what kind of lock might be right for the keys on the key chain.

Well it was pretty obvious by two thirds through this that it had to be a continuing leg of some sort, either that or they hardly showed any of the two last placed teams doing tasks.  So it was a bit of a surpise when Phil didn't tell the leading team to carry on.  Still a continuing leg of sorts though I suppose.

The detour was good.  I expected though that the judge would be quite lenient with the synchronized swimming (just like the Bollywood dance in the last season).  The library task looked the easier one to do, and actually on the side of one of the filing cabinets did appear to be the Russian alphabet in alphabetical order, but I'm not sure either team noticed it.  That was the whole of the leg though, the locks in the tree wasn't really that big a deal.

Taxis again having a big role to play here, going off with a team's belongings.  It's hardly the first time a taxi has left without waiting for a team but I don't remember them doing it while having a team's backpacks with them.  I never like taxis deciding the race.

As for the plane drama it was nice not to see them all on the same plane for once even if two teams got left behind.  I understood them deciding to keep with each other, that is up until they waited for a team to complete a detour.  I didn't get that at all, it's a race.  I thought they meant they would just go to the cluebox and choose the same detour together not that they would wait for each other to complete a task, as that makes no sense.

Overall I liked Lexi a bit more this episode, no loud annoying 'yays!' that I remember.  Trey is still boring.  Abi and Ryan though obviously meant to be the baddies are probably one of the few interesting team dynamics in this race.  The other teams I'm not sure I care about that much right now.  Funniest moment though was probably when Phil shouted out very happily 'you're team number 3!!!' to the twins and their response was so downbeat, or them sniping at each other at the tree.
