The Devil Made Me Do It is the penultimate episode of The Amazing Race 7.

Synopsis

Some teams reserve seats on flights while others take a risk with unconfirmed tickets for an earlier connection.

Nearing the last legs of the Race, some teams take a chance by purchasing airline tickets without confirmed seats on a connection, while other teams have seats on a direct flight which arrives later. Forced to beg for money and personal provisions, one Racer shares a stranger's tube of lipstick. One team uses the Yield to hold back another team. Will this delay affect their standing in the Race?[2]

Third, they had to find and make their way to the Baker Street tube station and find the statue outside to receive the third item (deerstalker hat).
