Couple D-d's path to each other follows the right edge and the bottom edge. A walks straight down until just before d, then takes a left. B and C both start out by going one block to their right. Couples B-b's path wraps around beneath couple C-c's. Couple A-a's path is below B-b's.

Give it another shot with all that in mind!
