Thirded.

CAN1's sequence was the same as 14 (7-5-4).
CAN2's was 20 (8-6-5).
CAN3's was without equivalent (8-5).
CAN4's was 26 (9-6-5).

Rule out Ottawa as the F6 elimination given the precedents of CAN1 Episode 8 as well as CAN3 Episode 5.
Rule out Panama as the F5 NEL given last year's precedent in a culturally similar Latin American nation as well as 29 being too recent.

Therefore,the CAN5 sequence will be a replica of 21 (7-6-4).

It's just an opinion, Granath. Therefore it would have a 7-5-4 NEL sequence for this season. The girls does not have future sightings beyond leg 6.

Hard to tell from this point, really, the order of the remaining 3 eliminations. We had one team sighted each leg after Ottawa, and nobody in the penultimate.

Adam & Andrea, at least, are final 5 for sure. We had them in Panama.

My impression was that all sightings between Central America and QC (City) non-inclusive were of finalists before the fact, e.g. Korey/Ivana in the Prairies and then Sam/Paul in Northern ON (i.e. the penultimate leg).

Therefore, the crux of the matter is determining what happened right after Asia, and one would think that the budget could handle six teams with camera/production crew in Newfieland as opposed to the same number in a non-domestic locale.

Also, despite the U-Turn, my hunch is the Ottawa Ontario/Gatineau Quebec leg when they get back might be another NEL. Being the capital region, the locations seen, CTV Twitter actually inviting people out, that leg is likely going to be the bread-and-butter of the Canada 150 theme (the leg that makes them talk about being patriotic)

Not a kind of leg I'd expect an elimination on.

Agreed on the upcoming leg in the capital being a Final Six non-elimination, the precedents being the very first Nova Scotia episode as well as the one in the third season with the Magdalene Isles.

We called it!

Do we know if 4 or 5 made it to Saskatchewan (Leg 9)?

With the scarce team sightings from this point on, it's certainy possible, too, that Panama is an elimination, and haveva F4 NEL/KOR.

Looking forward to the previews of those last 2 legs before the final because it's quite a mystery where the hell they vanished to for that several legs (and within Canada, makes it more impressive)

Remember what I surmised earlier?

Even though both previous SK episodes had great leg designs, MB should've been visited instead (Corner Gas be damned!).

Maybe they passed through it :p

I pulled out the road maps I have earlier to see where the rail routes go, that new clip in the intro hints train travel yet to come. Could explain no airport sighting after Regina.

It's possible through passenger rail to go from Saskatchewan, through Manitoba, and across northern Ontario, which then turns south to Sault.

In short, a rail travel-focused F4 KOR leg spanning 3 provinces. That'd be an alright leadup to the final elimination

The Algoma RR is a local sightseeing railway in the Sioux Ste Marie area. It runs once per day. There are two shots of trains in the intro. The first at the beginning is clearly the Algoma train. You can see the front of the engine. It's how Maanca and I ID'd it. The second is near the end and seems too long to be the Algoma train ??? But both appear to be in the same area of Canada.

The maroon train is definitely the Agawa Canyon Tour Train (I grew up I Sault Ste Marie).

It's a day long excursion that starts and ends in Sault Ste Marie, I don't think it would make sense for them to actually go on it since it will kill basically a whole day of time but they might do something at the rail yard.

There is also no via rail in and out of Sault Ste Marie, the only train service goes to Hurst (which is even more remote).

This is pretty much the only time being a Sault Ste Marie expert would ever be useful.

This article from local Sault Ste Marie news source also points towards a task at Bellevue Park.

Watching the end credits of TARCAN it says the show is copyrighted by Endurance Entertainment 5, so sounds like the same production to me. (Also SSM is the size of a postage stamp the odds of two different television productions going on is slim)

We believe this was the pitstop.

Okay, cool.

Just wondering about the specifics behind that hypothetical "Regina to the Soo via Manitoba" scenario, assuming no flight between SK and Northern ON.

For the train,
Would it be possible for them to do:

To take the trans-canadian from Saskatoon, heading to Toronto
but to stop at Oba railway Station, where they can transfer to the Algoma Central railway?

That would take them 1 day and 6 hours (according to via rail website)

There were two days between sightings in Regina & Sault Ste Marie, so for this to happen it would need to be a KOR, right?

I guess that they did just fly directly from YQR to YAM, completely bypassing YWG.

I don't think the train from SSM to Hurst is running any more. So they would be flying into the city via Person.

Actually, there are no direct flights from YQR to YAM, only connecting to YYZ.

Re: Finale.
The Observatoire de la Capitale is the highest vantage point in Quebec City and boasts a 360 degree of the city. What if the team member that rappels up there must look for the Finish Line?
There is an interactive webcam on their site: http://www.observatoire-capitale.com/visite-virtuelle/webcameras.html

As in, Pearson Airport?

Yes, they would fly from Regina to Toronto then Toronto to SSM, the only Air Canada flight into SSM is from Toronto

Gotcha.

K/B's fate is almost certainly going to be sealed by the F-O.
