Agreed. Dale needs mental help of some sort. Though the Duct tape isn't that big a deal; they did have a clip (before the commercial break) of her coming out of the hospital; so it's probably mainly there to help protect the bandages, splints and padding and keep it all in place.
I feel a bit bad for Michael; while he's a bad driver, he by no means is the worst; but because they need 3 drivers for the Final challenges, he's gotta do the challenge instead of Dale. Hopefully he'll learn a bit from it at least; but I'm not holding my breath.
Without Dale, Kevin is clearly the worst now. Sly isn't much better, but he's not bad enough to warrant a double winner again. And unlike Kevin, Sly does seem to be trying to learn a bit but isn't quite pulling it together.
Between Cam's comments, and the flash of Next week's ep promo, I'm thinking they brought Dale back for the final chew out, even if she can't do the last two tests. They'll probably narrow the Worst down to between her and Kevin, but because she didn't do the final drive, they can't award it to her, much as they might want to.
As for cutting up the license; I could swear they cut up a license before, but I might be misremembering. I know they've cut a car key before. They may have given a contestant their license back to cut up themselves, which might be what I'm remembering too.
I really hope the MOT will look at what was filmed and pull her license. The producers might want to have that removal on camera, but the department would probably keep it private, and probably not move fast enough to match the filming schedule.
Between Dale and Angelina, I've become a proponent for more thorough medical fitness tests for driving. We can still assume people are fit to drive when they first get the license; but there should be some requirement that after a certain number of accidents, the driver loses the license until they prove they have the skills, and are medically (and mentally) fit enough to drive safely. Then again, not having that piece of plastic would probably not be enough to keep them off the roads regardless.
And as I've said earlier (and on other boards), I'm hoping we don't have another Ever! season. I love CWD, especially's Andrew's snarking. But this much bad driving and seeing the lack of progress in some of these folks is just heart breaking. You can tell it in Andrew and the Judges, they're all shell shocked at how bad some of these guys still are, and how dense they are against learning/fixing their driving flaws.
