Oh, just a thought.

With Matt being "required" to do the roadblock this leg, and seeing Scott do what is speculated to be a Greek roadblock in the preview, could this mean that we'll have 2 roadblocks next leg? ??? Also, with Redmond's mention of him doing 4 roadblocks already, could this mean we'll have another leg with a double roadblock? ???

This might or might not be the best place to post it, but the preview was shown at the end of this episode, and Redmond was talking about his roadblock split with Matt this episode too.

Hopefully this leg doesn't include any downed planes or propaganda songs. The less this episode reminds viewers of the last visit, the better

Have not been looking forward to this leg for the possibility of it re-igniting that unfortunate event in TAR's history

2 legs in Vietnam in this episode. Not sure if I like that idea, but anyway...

I shouldn't imagine that there will be any controversy this time...

Hopefully, the Roadblock will be acknowledged as a Switchback to Season 9 as it will be the exact same task.

The model Detour looks similar to the task in Poland during Season aka Real All-Stars.

Yes, that pops up my mind instantly as well!!
I think Brooke can be more annoying than that lol, but the second Vietnam leg in TAR3 is such an epic leg, I hope Brooke can deliver the same lol

To be fair production have had almost a year to edit this episode and get it right. If they do make a gaffe this time around, they don't have any excuse.

The TAR22 leg was amazing and the backlash behind it is one of the most hypocritical and confusing messes I've ever seen.

We're seen a Thai Arlines plane touch down at the Hanoi airport(?) during the beginning of new promo video, so this might suggest teams connect through Bangkok airport taking Thai Airlines flight unless the editor trying to distract us.

It could just be an external shot. In Leg 1 we saw Copa, in leg 5 we saw KLM and in leg 6 we saw BA so maybe.
