1. At the mercy of a foreign cab driver, Linda & Karen have trouble communicating where they need to go and miss a very critical flight. Can they catch up?
2. Stuck with a pack of Teams waiting for a flight, cousins Charla & Mirna make a stealthy move away in the middle of the night.
3. Trying to complete a task, one Team is hopelessly lost amongst the great pyramids on the Giza Plateau when they run into a rival Team. Will the rival Team bury the hatchet and help the lost duo, or leave them behind to lose?
4. Teams are forced to face their fears of dark, cramped spaces as they must descend the ancient shaft to a watery tomb.
1.So Linda and Karen miss the flight. a 'very critical' flight is really not the kind of flight you want to miss. They are now the favorite to lose (although I'm beginning to suspect it's gonna be non-elim)
2.I would be willing to speculate that Charla and Mirna get a lead in their 'stealthy getaway', because they get so much focus on the video preview in the Tunneling Roadblock and usually the focus of the previews of an event is on the first teams to arrive at the challenge (colin+christie at the caviar, c+m at hockey). Or maybe it's just amazing that the Dwarf is tunneling like a Dwarf!
3. hmm.. 'bury the hatchet'.. what teams really hate each other... Chips + Twins, Doughboys and Charla + Mirna...
4. Tomb raiding from the preview.
So it doesn't look good for bowling moms... and it looks to be another auspicious week for Charla and Mirna. Let's see what the web preview says once CBS gets its act together

3. "RE: ep. 5 webcaps"
In the promo telecast on BB last night you can pick up a lot of interesting things not shown otherwise. And you have to freeze frame the last few seconds and advance frame by frame since each scene is only one frame. Here you see the following: Twins reading a map. Charla mounting a horse (daytime) and leading a camel train (nighttime). Chip with a log. Charla and Mirna going over next clue after coming out of the tomb (Charla still has her rig on). Car driving on right (ST. Pete) Bowling moms running up to empty ticket counter (did they miss their flight) Note that they show up running on desert with one falling down with injured knee (so they do make it) So it looks like there are at least four tasks to complete:
Map and Puzzle Solving (Day and Night scenes)
Exploring Tomb Shaft and Watery Tomb (Roadblock?) (Day only scenes)
Moving a large stone by rolling over logs (Night only scenes)
Mounting a horse and leading a camel train across desert.(Day and Night Scenes)
So it maybe that one task is a Fast Forward. Or do we have a task that everyone must do, then a detour with two tasks, and then the Roadblock down the tomb.
And the Yield is there by the Roadblock. Seems like that might be a good time to use it if you wanted to put someone way back.
