About time Canada introduced a twist of their own! (Remember when they claimed to "invent" the Face Off). Curious to see how this One Way thing will work.

Who said the title?

Interesting leg this one!

A good mix of new tasks and a sad elimination at the end of the episode! :(

Very interested to see what the One Way twist is!

By the sound of that name, I'd guess it's like a U-Turn, instead the team that gets it has to do the Detour they chose twice.

Instead of u-turning another team maybe the One Way is choosing the detour of another team?

It is rare for myself to really "hate" a team, but Dave & Irina reaction at the mat just reinforces my impressions from leg 1. It might be one of the rare occasions I really hate a team, despite them being very competent racers.
And the ending, was the 2nd team that fell through trouble during self-driving in this season. Wonder if will become a theme.

Curious where this Double One Way will be placed. It does seem to be related to the detour, but will the board location be placed before or after the completion of a detour task. Also, will the detour be the final task of this leg, or the one of the first things during it. And this entire paragraph should probably be in the spec thread, instead of this one which is about leg 2.

Just finished watching online, that looked like a tougher leg than last week. I wouldn't have expected planting seedlings to be the more difficult Detour, but apparently it was due to all the specifications.

So glad Lauren & Joanne made it! And moreso Gilles & Sean.

Dave & Irina are quickly turning into Canadian Justin & Diana. She got this week's title, and next week sounds like another by them too. Honestly, I don't mind, though. This is the kind of villain team Canada's sorely needed.

Best leg and episode of TARC in a long time!
See, they can come up with a good Leg design even in resort towns or rural towns if they want to. lol

It definitely could be this, or it could be two teams force two other teams to not be able to switch Detour options once they've chosen the first one :duno:

Overall, I definitely agree that the tasks on this leg were well-designed.  I especially liked the extra train building task at the end :tup:

Just catching up on this, and this was definitely much better than the first leg, both the bike and the train task were good.  The only bad part there was one team getting help from another when they obviously should have had to work it out for themselves.  Also the obsession this show has with express passes is very weird, all it helps do is reduce the drama.  Would have probably preferred the penultimate team to go out as the eliminated team had some funny moments, their navigation was always terrible though.

I don't really mind Dave and Irina either, they are competitive but that's ok.  Dave is doing most of the work so far.  Irina's attitude is funny at this point.
