Temple opens. Teams are getting dressed in traditional clothing and getting their blessing.

Take a train to Galle and go to King Coconut Stand. All teams are proceeding to the train station, and all teams make it. Country singers say that they like being by the cowboys. Country singers say that one of their main goals this race was to be best friends with the cowboys. Flashback scene to the country girls fangirling over cowboys at the airport on leg 1, lol.

Gorgeous train ride.

Margie & Luke finally getting on their flight.

And teams are jumping off of the train and going on taxis. It's chaotic.

#DETOUR! Fishing Pole or Spin Control?

That's the same train route teams took on TAR 6 in Sri Lanka before the Great Tsunami and which was heavily damaged.

Great to see that the physical infrastructure is back up almost a decade later.

Fishing: Dave & Connor, Jet & Cord and Jessica & John.
Spinning: Flight Time & Big Easy, Brenchel, Caroline & Jennifer and Afghanimals.

Jet & Cord actually had a point saying they could have weighed the fish...  that would have made a better challenge.

Brenchel done with Detour in P6.

To switch or not to switch? That's the question for Jessica and John.

Commercial break.

John rehashing Mirna's "this is like a nightmare" phrase... :groan: Just no, it's not like Mirna trying to communicate with Polish locals that don't speak a slick of English.

Jessica thinks they should switch. John thinks they should switch. They switch.

Margie & Luke have been blessed by the monk. Now they're going to go to the train station.

Roadblock. Teams will have to stitch together a shirt. When the floor manager feels like it's good, their next clue will be printed on the shirt.
Speedbump is here.

There's an ongoing demonstration. Connor and Big Easy are doing the roadblock. Jennifer is doing it? Caroline doing it? Still can't tell. :funny:

Big Easy: "I decided to do the roadblock... Worst decision ever." lol.

Jessica says that John is not a great dancer. Oh man. Not very good at all. :lol:

Leo & Jamal arrive at the roadblock. Leo is doing it. Jet is doing it. Leo says he's seen his mom doing this a bunch of times. Jet has never sewn before. "It's worse than a puzzle because all the puzzle pieces are... moving."

Jessica & John finish the detour in 7th. Margie & Luke are on the 2:25 train to Galle. Margie says she's proud of Luke for staying calm.

Brenchel arrive at the speedbump. They have to apply the final layer to the Sri Lanka flag. Once they've printed 15 perfect sheets, then they can continue.

Jennifer is doing the roadblock. Got it. :lol: Jennifer and Connor are working together. Connor says it was great to work with Jen on the roadblock.

Brenchel still working on the speedbump.

An "agh" montage with Big Easy, Jet and Leo. Brenchel finish the speedbump. Brendon is doing the roadblock. Leo says he'll give 1000 rupies to get someone to do it for him LOL.

Connor is getting his shirt checked... It is not good. It's close, but there's a little hole I guess?

Jennifer gets her shirt checked, but there's a seam missing. John & Jessica arrive and Jessica is doing it. Jessica is very confused. She asks if you have to press the pedal and if there are needles lol.

Rachel says it doesn't make her feel better that Margie & Luke are behind because Margie could be a super sewer.
