It is revealed that there is also another "selling stuffs" task that is all cut.

When? Where?

According to the Facebook of one member of the blue team, after the task in the tunnel, teams need to travel to a market near Hoa Binh Theater to perform a flower selling task.

The Blue team also reveals that:
- The team actually did not complete the Roadblock and received a 1h44' penalty: 1h30' for quitting the Roadblock and 14 minutes for breaking 7 eggs in the first attempt.
- Because of a production difficulty, the Blue team gets some "time credits" and becomes the first team in this leg of the race.

Interesting! I did wonder how they were able to catch up. I assumed teams had difficulty in the tunnel. But perhaps teams had more trouble in the flower selling.

They did spend half the episode on the RB which I think was too long anyway.

Do we know if Blue team got the penalty at the RB site, or at the Pit Stop?

At the RB site. They just didn't show it.
They must have caught up at the detour (soccer)

I think the Blue team received the penalty at the RB site. The team said that after the RB, they were left far behind other teams.

The final task of the last leg is shown here :D. According to the clue, each team needs to sell 50 flowers to at least 10 different people. The price of each flower is 3000 VND (~0.13 USD).

Was a pretty fun episode this week, and I think a lot of us will be talking about next week's episode.

TAR Vietnam about to visit North Korea feels so awesome, yet so surreal.

Good episode, but kind of a Linear Leg. It was such a typical big city/urban Leg lol But alright. Happy to see the BQs get a win though. Sad about the Pink Team. I really liked them.

They were very lenient with the dubbing task it seems, but I much prefer this improv than TARC's Lion King dub RB lol
They made up for it by being very strict with the Detour it seems.

The Pyongyang Leg looks like a Leg that could easily be staged in South Korea. lol I agree it could be a very Linear Leg if they are being watched the entire time. Of course, Vietnam and North Korea have a much friendlier relationship. But it really will be a surreal episode, I think.

How did the pink team fall so far behind? They got the memorization task first try when 3 other teams had to redo but got to the theater last.

It seemed like a very Linear Leg. The only points where teams were able to get ahead was at the dubbing when Brown Team passed the Blue Team who were taking too much time coming up with lines. And then at the Detour where the BQs/Yellow Team were able to do the makeup faster than the other teams. Otherwise, the placements were all the same.

Especially when the RB was first come, first served. Teams were already in an order at the start. Pink Team didn't seem to have any chance to catch up.

Is there a special reason teams got the clue directly from Song Luan at the start of the Leg?

Wow. Pink team are dressed in completely different (and weird?) clothing and MLee looks like total crap in the confessionals. GEE, I wonder if they were eliminated...

Anyway, I MUST have misunderstood something about the Detour. To me, it sounds like the choice was...

A) Put on makeup and costumes, or...
B) Put on makeup and costumes and then ALSO learn and perform an opera scene.

I mean, unless I missed something, then no wonder everybody chose the first one! (???)

For the second choice, someone else will draw the makeup for them so that the team does not need to put on the makeup by themselves. It is still obvious that the second option is much longer and is not significantly easier than the first one.

Also, what was with the really, really poor overdubbing during the Roadblock every time somebody said "Thanh Po Ho Chi Minh"? Did the editors really expect us to believe that was what they were actually saying in that moment? That was some of the worst dubbing I've ever seen... What was going on? Was everybody saying Sai Gon instead, or something?

I thought the other side of the Detour was to play the music only. Not the actual performance in makeup and costume?

According to this article, because of local rules in North Korea, a special rule will be applied in the North Korean leg.

I guess that the teams will go to the task locations and perform the tasks together, the producer will record the time the teams used to finish that task, and at the Pit Stop, the final result will be revealed :O.

Yeah, I assumed there would be some restrictions like that. You're not going have foreigners running around Pyongyang like they normally would elsewhere. lol and eeek at the same time.

What intrigues me the most about international TAR is seeing locations from another country's perspective and seeing countries TAR US hasn't gone to or can't go to. I've wondered for some time if a leg in DPRK was possible from TAR China for example, but I always thought that it would be a logistical nightmare (reading an interview with a TARV producer, it took several months to get permission to film). So, I still in awe that this leg actually happened.

The fact that this leg was kept a secret to this cast until they reached Beijing is a little crazy and a little disturbing. Even if Vietnam has better relations with DPRK than the West, their reactions reading the clue said everything. Any leg in Pyongyang was going to be limited compared to other locations, and this leg was as competitive as it was going to be despite limitations. In a leg that visited Pyongyang, how is the most surprising thing the return of the final 4 finale?

Is this the first non-US season to have 4 teams in the final leg?

They probably did it this way for compensation because of how restrictive this country would be.

Kind of, as far as I remember, and makes sense.
