Okay, we have a tie (as usual), so I'll break it:
We cut to Luxor Airport at 9:25 pm. The first plane arrives and all four teams rush out of the airport, hailing taxis.
Megan: Take us to the Karnak Open Air Museum.
Nat: Please take us to the Karnak Open Air Museum.
Kisha: We have to go to the Karnak Open Air Museum.
Tammy: Get us there as fast as possible!
We see the taxis travelling through the streets of Eastern Luxor and then cut to the Karnak Open Air Museum, where:
Cheyne: Uh-oh! The museum is closed, Megan!
Kat: Hours of Operation 8 am - 5 pm. That's bad.
Jen: Everyone will catch up. I'm not too surprised.
Victor: Let's lie down here and just rest.
We then cut to 11:50 pm, when the second plane arrives. The four teams rush off and hail taxis. But when they get to the Karnak Open Air Museum:
Tyler: Look over there!
James: We're caught up!
Nick: We've got Hours of Operation.
Starr: Well, that's no real surprise.
Chris: Yes! Hours of Operation!
Alex: We're not in the back now!
Uchenna: We're all caught up now.
Joyce: But we need some help now.
The scene changes to morning, and at 8 am the doors open. All the teams head in and quickly grab envelopes.
Megan: "Make your way to the Luxor Post Office."
Phil (voice-over): Teams must now make their way to the Luxor Post Office, located on Sharia al-Mahatta, not far from the intersection with Sharia al-Karnak. It is here that teams will find their next clue.
Uchenna: Here's a Fast-Forward!
Phil: There is only one Fast-Forward on this leg of the Race. Teams can use it to skip all tasks and go directly to the Pit Stop. However, teams can only use it once, so they have to decide when it's best to go for it. In this Fast-Forward, teams have to go to Al-Sahaby Lane Restaurant and eat a sandwich which contains falafel, balls or patties made from fava beans in Egypt. The team that manages to eat the falafal sandwich first will win the Fast-Forward.
Joyce: We're so going for it!
Alex: Do you want to go for the Fast-Forward?
Chris: If it helps us beat Nick & Starr, sure.
Cheyne: We'll go to the Post Office, Megan.
Nick: Two teams are going for the Fast-Forward.
Starr: So we'll go to the Post Office instead.
Tyler: Let's go to the Post Office.
James: Yeah, it's better that way.
Jen: Let's go to the Post Office.
Kisha: Yeah, we'll do just fine.
Nat: We might as well go to the Post Office.
Kat: Yeah, Uchenna & Joyce need the FF more.
Tammy: Well, we're going to the Post Office.
Victor: Yeah, we might do pretty well there.
All the teams hail taxis to their respective destinations. We see Chris & Alex trying to get their driver to understand where they want to go.
Alex: We need to go to Al-Sahaby Lane Restaurant.
First Taxi Driver (in Egyptian): What?
Chris: Oh man. The curse of the bad taxi driver!
Joyce: You know where the restaurant is?
Second Taxi Driver (in English): Yes.
Uchenna: I hope he knows where it is.
We then see Chris & Alex trying to get locals to help them understand where they need to go.
Chris: Can you tell our driver where the restaurant is?
First Local: Al-Sahaby Lane Restaurant?
Alex: Yeah! He doesn't speak English and we need help!
First Local: Let me ask my friend here.
We then cut to the exterior of the Al-Sahably Lane Restaurant. A taxi pulls up and Uchenna & Joyce step out of it, heading inside and greeting a waiter who takes them to a table.
Waiter: An Egyptian specialty -- falafals stuffed inside a sandwich made out of pita.
Uchenna: You can eat it okay?
Joyce: We'll soon find out.
They begin digging into the falafal sandwich as we cut back to Chris & Alex.
Second Local: I'll give your driver directions.
Chris: Thanks! What a major relief!
Alex: Let's hope nobody else is there.
Unfortunately, at this point:
Uchenna: How are you doing?
Joyce: I'm doing pretty well.
We then cut to the Luxor Post office, where another taxi has just arrived.
Megan: Roadblock! "Who wants letters from home?"
Phil: This Roadblock is a Switchback to one from Season 11, where the teams that took the Roadblock all received letters from teams that they knew in their original seasons. Hidden inside a pile of letters are eight letters from teams who had competed on the seasons that the teams originally won. When a team finds a letter addressed to them, the postmaster will give them their next clue.
Cheyne: I think you can do this one easily, Megan.
Megan nods and begins searching in the pile for a letter for her & Cheyne. That's when the next team arrives.
Nick: Roadblock! You can do this one, right?
Starr: Yeah. This should be easy for me, bro.
She begins looking as well as the third team arrives.
Kisha: Roadblock. I'll do it.
Jen: Yeah, you can do this one.
We then see two teams arrive at the same time.
Tyler: It's a Roadblock!
Kat: Roadblock, Natty!
James: I'll do this one.
Nat: I can do this one.
As James and Nat begin looking through the pile of letters, we see the last team not going for the Fast-Forward arrives.
Tammy: Roadblock, Victor!
Victor: You can do it now.
We then cut to the restaurant, where we see Uchenna & Joyce are eating the falafal sandwiches. We see Chris & Alex's taxi arrive right outside and the team arrives.
Chris: Uh-oh. Uchenna & Joyce are here!
Alex: We can't catch up! Let's go now.
They go out and get directions to the Luxor Post Office as we see Uchenna finish his falafal sandwich and encourage Joyce to finish hers. We then cut back to the post office, where we see James, Kisha, Megan, Nat, Starr and Tammy all looking for the letters addressed to them. Suddenly, one of them grabs a letter and goes to get their partner.
Nat: We got a letter from Brook & Claire!
Kat: Well, don't just stand there! Read it!
Nat: "Dear Nat & Kat, we're so glad you're getting a second chance to win The Amazing Race!
Kat: "We wish you all the best and we hope you win again! Your friends, Brook & Claire." Thanks!
We then see the postmaster hand the doctors their next clue.
Nat: "Make your way to Luxor Temple."
Phil (voice-over): Teams must now make their way to the Luxor Temple, largely the work of Amenhotep III and Rameses the Great. It is here that teams will find their next clue.
Kat: Let's get over to the temple!
They leave as we cut back to the restaurant and see Joyce finish the last bite of the falafal sandwich. She looks at the waiter, who hands them a clue envelope.
Uchenna: "Congratulations, you have won the Fast-Forward!"
Joyce: "Now go to the Valley of the Kings, the next Pit Stop!"
Phil (voice-over): Having won the Fast-Forward, Uchenna & Joyce can skip all remaining tasks and go directly to the Pit Stop: the Valley of the Kings on the West Bank. However, Uchenna & Joyce won't have to travel there by taxi or camel. Instead, they can travel there by means of a private car.
Uchenna: We did it! We're safe!
Joyce: Let's get over there!
They head out of the restaurant, find a private car and drive away to the West Bank and the Valley of the Kings.
Okay, Uchenna & Joyce have won the Fast-Forward. Let me know how you like what I've done so far.
