Google has street view on some of the area (here's what the racers saw from the top of the bridge) and Finn has the best aerials.
Trivia: three years before D-Day and six months before Pearl Harbor, the Lofoten islands were raided by the UK: Operation Claymore.

i dont think they would have one detour option involving fish and an FF involving fish.
my spec is that the detour options are dry fish (Nicky and Kim) or wet fish (Iceganimals)
the task Tim and danny are doing could either be FF or Route info

Yes, nice thoughts.. About the task Tim/Danny were doing might be just Route info task to get ur next destination (we've also seen the Ice girls doing this task)

Fish racks, possible instruction that teams had to get several dry fish from the fish racks and bring them to the fisherman's cabin and smash the fish until they get flattened..






anyone for confessional location? (which could probably be a pit stop ;) )






the building seems like somewhere in here :






I mean like it's in the middle of the town of Henningsvaer/Lofoten, not on those fisherman's cabin vicinity in Svolvaer... :P

I woke up this morning just to post my TBC spec, but you guys have already made a hunch which is great! What Tim & Marie are wearing in their confessional looks like summer gear, not only that, but we do have a photo of them racing in Poland wearing those  same clothes (I'll bring it to this post in a minute).

Here's the photo http://web.stagram.com/p/481886610339074065_339554547

I guessed a TBC because Speed Bumps and U-Turns get complicated in a leg and having Leg 4 NEL is so unoriginal. Bring on the TBC!

Could this be a sign that this leg will be a TBC leg? In fact that Tim & Marie shot their confessional in Poland (which is the next leg's destination), not Norway? :)

Not necessarily, we have occasionally seen future confessionals used in current eps...

Nice eye! So they're in the...Hotel Aurora? getting information (or signing up for a fast boat).
On a different topic, the sightline for the Viking treasure chest would put them on Sauoya island (or someplace similar--photo source).

Yes, from the point of view of the camera they should be at the hotel.

BTW, this Sighting pic is in the corner of the museum.

For what it is worth-the latest issue of National Geographic has a nice spread on the Lofoten Islands.

Well, it appears from these new previews that ALL of the confessionals are at that same place. Which is strong evidence in favor of a (sigh) "Post-UB Lame TBC Episode." That for some reason counts as two legs. (:;)

(I'm still waiting for someone to give me an acceptable explanation as to why such a phenomenon should be considered two legs.)

Appears there was a bunching point somewhere. Maybe the airport ?

Well, I read spoilers, and that is not gonna happen. Also, it seems like the F/Fs are ahead if you check the lighting of day.

Also I'm the only one who see Nicky&Kim in caps 11, 12 y 13 at the U-TURN board?  :crazy:

The U-Turn is just 500m from the Neptune statue, along the river right next to the medieval port crane here.

Straight down the plaza to the river, then along the river until you see the sign. This suggests the other Detour option should be close too, within the Old Town.

There's a cap of the Afghanimals (in dancing outfit) at the U-Turn board without any photos on it. Is it a doctored image or did they arrive before they could be U-Turned?

Yes, I think I saw them at the U-turn board with empty slots on it. I think they just changed the Detour.

I love this episode. The destinations, the tasks and the drama are amazing.  :luvya: But do Marie&Tim have to come back to the Route Info task to take the picture odd pit stop when they check in? Or not?

And next leg, how can the bunnies check in the U-Turn board ahead of many other teams. They are so far behind. I hope Oklahoma boys will be still safe next week.

I don't think so. They only need to coins to check in.
Bunnies catch up maybe due to the flight.

I'm confused, did I get the timeline right? (More in the Transportation thread.)

I have the teams racing in Svolvaer the "night" of 16/17 Jun, but they don't leave Trondheim until the morning of the 19th. Now this would suggest massive bunching by some weird itinerary mandated by TPTB (since there are faster ways to get to Poland), but teams arrive in Gdansk on different flights...

What happened between the Lofoten and Trondheim?

Right sightline, wrong island: the coin task was at Engoya not Sauoya, and the longhouse is near the inauspiciously named town of Borg.

I'm just watching the insider videos on the youtube channel and I just wanted to add that the whole speech from Marie about who's getting the Express Pass comes from Leg 1 Confessional so there is really no reason to believe she is gonna give it to Nicole&Travis.

I'm not sure about you guys but I thought this episode was superb! The season just keeps getting better each episode. To set the leg in a beautiful location is the first bonus! A difficult Detour involving the location's workforce was awesome! The boat ride and the Roadblock was the high rush adrenalin we don't get to see in TAR anymore besides premiere legs and final legs! and the boulder task was a nice quick touch.. and not to forget the touch of culture at the Pit Stop :) hope episode 5 is even better!

The photo by King7 at the airport was POSTED on 1:59 AM - 19 Jun 13 ( I think that time could reflect the time I see (EST))

However, he never replied as to WHEN the photo was taken...so it is entirely possible that it could have been taken sometime before...

The sightings in Poland reflect quite well a morning departure from Trondheim on 19 Jun though, so we still have two full days to account for between Borg (Pit Stop) and Trondheim (airport)...

Question:

If Episode 4 and obviously Leg 4, was a TBC or KR Leg, those that mean that Episode 5, will still be Leg 4 and Marie doesn't need to give away the EP until Episode 6 in the real Leg 5? or the second part of Leg 4 will be Leg 5?
