Previously on The Amazing Race Asia...

Five teams raced from Singapore to Yogyakarta, Indonesia!

A Roadblock at Jomblang Cave had teams walking the mile, but it was JK who took the fall and lost their lead!

In a game of memory, Treasuri & Louisa were on-point and on-target, jumping to a joyride ahead of all the other teams!

JK & Mike battled Yvonne & Chloe to avoid last place, overtaking the Malaysian beauty queens, but one wrong turn sealed their fate.

Four teams remain, who will be eliminated next?

Treasuri & Louisa depart first.

Route Info: Make your way by train to Banyuwangi, Indonesia. Once there, find famous coffee master something to get your next clue!

All other teams depart!

Parul & Maggie depart and say that if there's a sabotage power, they WILL use it to make it to the end.

Treasuri & Louisa arrive at the train station and discuss all other teams being in an alliance against them.

At the train station, Eric & Rona and Parul & Maggie get on the same train as Treasuri & Louisa.

All teams are now headed to Banyuwangi on the same train!

All teams arrive at night and at the coffee place. Master Setlawan is not there, and Yvonne & Chloe sign up first on an Hours of Operation. Parul & Maggie in 2nd. Treasuri & Louisa in 3rd. Eric & Rona in last.

The next morning, Yvonne & Chloe enter to an accompaniment of instrumental music and get a cup of coffee. They get their clue after finishing it!

Route Info: Make your way to the top of Kavah Ijen and hike your way three kilometers to the top of the volcano to receive your next clue. CAUTION: YIELD AHEAD!

All other teams follow.

Yvonne & Chloe ask their driver how far it is. Their driver says its two hours :o Chloe says that her ankle was hurt in the Singapore leg and hope that it's not detrimental to their performance in the leg.

All teams are now running up the hill and fighting to make it to the Yield.

Yvonne & Chloe arrive and say that it stinks and Yvonne says it smells like Chloe's armpits :lol: <3

Rona is crying :( She says that she can't feel her toes. She had a recent knee surgery. Eric asks if she wants to quit, Rona refuses and says there's no quitting.

Rona: #ICantFeelMyToes :lol: <3

Yvonne & Chloe arrive at the Yield. They choose not to Yield and get the Roadblock clue. Who wants to crush it?

Roadblock: One team member must collect 80kg of Sulfur to get their next clue.

Yvonne chooses to perform the Roadblock.

Parul & Maggie arrive and yield Treasuri & Louisa. Parul does it.

Treasuri & Louisa arrive at the Yield. They understand and instead choose to watch the other teams doing the Roadblock to get a good strategy at performing the task.

Eric & Rona arrive. Eric does the Roadblock.

Yvonne struggles at the Roadblock while Eric does well and other teams call him "BEAST MODE".

Parul: If anyone knows to mess with me, you know what's happening! *smashes rock* :lol: <3

The Yield runs out and Louisa chooses to do the Roadblock!

I didn't mention it, but Louisa is forced to do the Roadblock to even the RB count. Louisa gets heavier rocks to get more sulfur.

Eric is done! They're out in first!

Route Info: Make your say to SDN2 Kecamatan Gilagah! CAUTION: UTURN AHEAD! :o

This leg is great so far but I am NOT a big fan of a Yield AND a U-Turn on the same leg AT THE FINAL FOUR. Come on!  (:;)

Yield and U-turn!?!?!? :nut: :nut: :nut:

My gut tells me Trez & Lou might still make it past this leg.

We're back.

Yvonne & Chloe finish the Roadblock in 3rd! They discuss U-Turning Treasuri & Louisa because they are 2nd to last.

Treasuri & Louisa quickly finish in last. Treasuri carries Louisa on her back off the mountain. They hope that they'll get mercy from the other teams.

Eric & Rona arrive first and get to the U-Turn. They U-Turn Treasuri & Louisa. :(

Detour: Dragon Horse or Human Bull?

Dragon Horse: Decorate a dragon carriage and once it's approved, ride it to get your next clue.

Human Bull: Transfer rice husks while running in mud and avoiding farmers blocking their way to receive their next clue!

Eric & Rona and Parul & Maggie choose Dragon Horse.

Yvonne & Chloe choose Dragon Horse but are forced to switch because both Filipino teams are doing it.

Treasuri & Louisa arrive and are crushed :( They choose to do Dragon Horse but are also forced to switch.

Treasuri & Louisa arrive and Yvonne & Chloe are still there. They are determined to catch up.

At Dragon Horse, Yvonne & Chloe are attacked by the mud farmers. Chloe is down and yells "WHAT THE FUCK" :lol:

They choose to switch and wait for the other teams :o

I like seeing a U-turn and a Yield on the same leg, and I think it's a first, but this would've been better on an earlier leg.  :tantrum I may be rooting for the underdogs more at this point, but my sympathy is on Trez & Lou. It's as if the leg design is against them. :( I get why the Filipino teams targeted Trez & Lou, but it really looks like the leg design was going against them.

And then, it becomes n F4F. #prediction

We're back.

Yvonne & Chloe choose to switch and then switch again after seeing Eric & Rona and Treasuri & Louisa.

Treasuri & Louisa are frustrated at the Detour. Louisa throws mud at the farmers :lol:

At the other Detour, Parul & Maggie's horse begins acting up. Parul continuously apologizes. :lol:

At the mud Detour, Yvonne & Chloe struggle. Yvonne's ankle is really hurt and she just crumbles.

Eric & Rona get a check on the other Detour and are denied. Parul & Maggie ask for a check. Denied.

At Dragon Horse, Eric & Rona ask for another check and they're denied.

Parul & Maggie are working.

At the mud Detour, TREASURI & LOUISA FINISH IT! They now have to wait for the other teams at Dragon Horse to finish so they can begin it.

This is so painful to watch :(

I'm in utter shock. This would have been an amazing Final Four leg.

Instead, it's utterly unfair.

I hate this.

I love all the teams left, but this is really just sad.

Was production THAT desperate to have powers used? :res: :res: :res: :res:

Trez & Lou have a chance for 1st had they not been U-turned! :o Meanwhile, the comparison between Yvonne & Chloe's progress with Trez & Lou's was almost unbelievable. :o

After what Trez & Lou are going through, I'm rooting for them to make it past this leg. :hoot: They may have the advantage for being in Indonesia, but if they survive a leg after a Yield and a U-turn, that would be incredibly amazing. Also, this is not just any leg, but the F4!

They said that they're absolutely sad to see Treasuri & Louisa be U-Turned, but they had to do it.

Parul & Maggie are lost on the way to the Pit Stop!

Treasuri & Louisa are emotional but they're happy to have proved a point and stayed friends, and that's all that matters.

And with that, an otherwise phenomenal Final Four leg ends with unfairness and leaves me slightly bitter towards this end. *sighs*
