This episode of Road Rules seems to find things heating up as the group nears the end. David (Viewers Revenge) ends up in the Pit once again and he finds himself facing Dan (Viewers Revenge) for the fourth time. They play shockwave, which is a game where they have to stand on a wooden platform while holding a rope in between them. David gets smacked around a bit, but he pulls through the win.
Meanwhile, the RV is hoping that Dan returns, but David pulls in. The group discusses what will happen now that both Derek (Viewers Revenge) and David have both paid their dues. The group remains pretty adamant that they will keep sending David in, which makes the two angry. However, the alumni alliance can't offer any consolation. In addition, they seem to aim their sights on David, assuming Derek has been absolved into the alliance.
The mission they get is a "Fear Factor"-esque mission with four parts. In the first part, Susie (Australia) and David have to run through a ghost town and grab a key off a wall while having attack dogs chase them. David can easily do it with the dog attached to his arm. Once he gets his key, he goes to pick up Susie and her dog, so they can pick up her key. The second stage is a crawl through a mice pit and picking up a key out of a tank of tarantulas and scorpions. Tori (Viewers Revenge) and Derek complete this mission. Adam (The Quest) and Kina (Extreme) have to eat maggots, which Kina first refuses to do, but she ends up doing anyway.
They have to complete a puzzle for the last mission, but they fail this. They make a mistake by spelling a word "Wren" as "When". They fail to bank $20,000.
Citing the fact that they don't want to make two people pissed off at them, the group decides to vote in David rather than Derek. The group tells David not to get emotional, but he begins to cry uncontrollably, telling the group that he isn't angry with them, but he's beginning to sympathize with them as he continues to spend more time in the RV. The group seems pretty resolved to send David into the Pit nevertheless and David says that he's resigned to the fact that he can't escape the Pit for the rest of the time he's on the show.
