I agree with everyone else. When Ron said he'd do the detour, I thought, "Why?" He's easily frustrated and his daughter is in better shape.
I could have sworn Kent told Mallory's dad (whose name is escaping me) that if they worked together, he'd show him where the final guy was. Am I confusing him with someone else? If that's the case, it was pretty lousy of him to ditch him like that.
The Globetrotters really helped everyone they came across and they still got out of there quickly. Smart way to build good will. I also kind of wondered if maybe Big Easy and Jen's height gave them a kind of advantage in that they could simply see over the heads of at least part of the crowd.
I felt for Zev. I'm not a noise/crowd person myself, but I've had students with fairly mild forms of his autism, and I know they've told me that noise/crowds really interfere with their ability to concentrate. I'm glad he thought to use his earplugs.
Why in the world would Ron think the men he's looking for wouldn't be dressed as they were in the photos?
Oh, and the cowboys ought to be able to handle the detour. I imagine they're more than familiar with both manure and hay. Since they are, my guess is they'll go for the hay, especially since they seem to have no difficulty toting loads.
