Welcome to the second leg of The Amazing Race 8: Family Edition.

The Teams

Linz Family - Siblings

Paulo Family - Yorkers

Bransen Family - DLG

Weaver Family - Holy Rollers

From Lancaster, PA, The Blondes take off first looking for the Shoe House. Marathoners part 2nd at 8:07am. Holy Rollers depart 3rd. Mom calls for 100% from the kids. Rogers son thinks he knows what he is talking about, but Dad doesn’t listen. StepFam leaves 5th at 8:18am. Marathoners studied the map the night before. Dad calls for the kids to not be in stupid mode. Blondes fill up with $10g in gas. Suthners kid mouths off to Dad.

Yorkers depart with Mom complaining how no one listens to her. Son says mom's nagging drives him nuts. DLG is pleased with his daughter's performance. They say their Dad is not optimistic enough. DSIL is described by the SILs as protective. Siblings hope to learn from their mistakes and make up time.

Marathoners arrive at the shoe first, and daughter is not allowed to go get the clue with Dad. They have to find the reflecting pool in the Mall in front of the State Capital. StepFam arrives 2nd, followed by Blondes in 3rd. Holy Rollers arrive 4th, send the kid to get the clue. Suthners arrive 5th and send Buck to get the clue. They take 30 East, looking for 83 South.

Yorkers arrive at the shoe and collect their clue. DLG arrives at the shoe in 7th place. DSIL arrives in 8th place. One of the SILs lived in DC for last 3 years. Siblings arrive last for their clue. Everyone has taken 30 West except Suthners. Dad tells son he is responsible for finding 83 South. When they realize there is a mistake, Dad takes over the wheel, infers son missed the exit.

Daughter points out that 83 South is off 30 West, and Dad admits he was wrong. Mom says they should listen to son more. Dad says there is only so much one person can do. Brock rolls his eyes. Marathoners and Holy Rollers arrive at US Capitol, along with Blondes. Holy Rollers are in first place. Teams must find a limousine and take an unmarked briefcase, then find their next clue next to the Jefferson Memorial.

Blondes are second to the clue. Marathoners and StepFam are looking for the clue at the wrong reflecting pool. Yorkers find the clue and the limo, as mom worries about gas. DSIL stops to look a map. Siblings spy the flag in the distance. StepFam gets their clue. Siblings are in 5th place. DSIL finds their clue. Blondes looking for the basin, and find it in 1st place.

It’s a Road Block. One person has to find a spy carrying a briefcase identical to their own. Only 10 of 50 have the next clue. A code must be exchanged before they can exchange briefcases and get their next clue. Blondes are the first to leave the roadblock to Middleburg to find Welbourne Manner. Holy Rollers are the 3rd team at the roadblock. Holy Rollers complete the Road Block in 2nd place. Yorkers are in 3rd place.

StepFam arrives at the Road Block. Yorkers pass the Pentagon. StepFam Dad says one of the non-spies has panties that are too tight. DLG Dad is slowing down the girls. Marathon mom stops to throw a penny in a pool. Siblings arrive at the roadblock along with DSIL. StepFam Dad calls a spy pops, but it is the right one. They are in 5th place. Yorkers are looking for a gas station. Mom says they should have stopped before they reached DC.

DSIL gets their clue in 5th place. Suthners looking for the reflecting pool, ask for directions. Marathoners are still looking at wrong pool. Kid says they should ask but no one listens. They have been looking for 2 hours. DLG still can't find it. Marathoners meet up with Suthners, and they finally ask a park service ranger and realize they are in the wrong place. Marathoners get their clue, followed DLG and Suthners. Yorkers still can't find gas. Finally they find a station.

Siblings are still looking for their spy. Marathoners hit the Road Block. Siblings make their exchange. Marathoners make their exchange, in 6th place, and use a map. DLG hits the Road Block. Holy Rollers are looking for the tidal basin. Yorkers misread the map again. DSIL hits a traffic jam, along with Siblings and Marathoners. Siblings use a map to hit the back roads. DLG gets their clue in 8th place. Suthners hit the Road Block in last place.


Holy Rollers are first to arrive at Welbourne Manner and hit a Detour. In Heat of the Battle, teams must transport 5 wounded soldiers off a reenactment battlefield. In Heat of the Night, teams must take lamps to a quartermaster and then take a regimental flag to the pit stop. Holy Rollers pick Heat of the Battle. Blondes arrive and decide to do Heat of the Night, filling 20 lamps with oil.

Siblings arrive 3rd and choose Heat of the Battle. Blondes bring the lamps and have to light them. StepFam arrives at the Detour followed by DLG. DSIL arrives. Siblings have 3 of 5 wounded. DLG become core men. DSIL thinks the reenactment is incredible. Blonds recover 4 of 5. Holy Rollers head to the Pit Stop. They are Team #1 and win a trip for 4 to the South Hampton. Siblings wait and arrive 2nd. Blondes arrive 3rd. DLG Dad is wearing out. DSIL Dad wants to slow down.

DLG daughters push Dad along. Marathoners arrive at the Detour and the son says battlefield. Mom says to not worry about getting shot. StepFam is working on the lamps. Soldiers groan in misery as they are lifted on and off the stretcher. StepFam completes the lamps and arrives at the Pit Stop in 4th place. DSIL Dad basks in his pride for his SILs. DSIL and DLG race for the finish line, DSIL in 5th place and DLG in 6th place.

Marathoners complete their task and are in 7th place. Yorkers arrive at the Detour in 8th place and choose Heat of the Battle. Suthners arrive at the Detour. Yorkers have 2 of their soldiers, but Mom complains she can’t do it. Suthners give up on the Heat of the Battle after saving one life, and head to the lamps. They have 10 lamps. Yorkers have 4 bodies. Suthners have 19 lamps. Yorkers retrieve their final soldier.

Yorkers are the 8th team to the pit stop. The son says Mom complains but always comes through. The Rogers the last team to arrive and are eliminated. Dad takes responsibility for taking his family in the wrong direction. Brock complains no one listens to him. Mom says she will hold the family together.


Who notes Dad remains stubborn in being right, and Son remains stubborn in being misunderstood, but it is the adults who have made the mistakes...
