When everyone has moved inside, Jordan draws her Have-Nots at random so that nobody can be mad at her. The first is Natalie, who's okay with it, because she's got a slop pass. Then it's Kevin, and then Jessie, who acts like a pissy little bitch about it, because you know how he is about his food. Looks like Jordan underestimated Jessie's capacity to be mad at her. But the one I really feel bad for is Kevin, who's going to have to be trapped in that bedcube with Mr. and Mrs. Macbeth for the next week.
Later, Jessie and Natalie discuss the deal Russell made with Jeff to nominate Ronnie, versus what Russell actually wants to do, versus what Russell actually will do, which could be three different things for all we know at this point. Meanwhile, in the kitchen, Jeff assures Jordan that he cut a deal with Russell and they're good. And then we see that Natalie and Jessie are fomenting resentment with Russell against Kevin and Lydia for dropping first and scoring prizes. Russell assures us he'll listen to them, but do what he wants.
Ronnie, Jessie, and Natalie discuss the mystery power, and Ronnie actually thinks he has a shot at getting America to give it to him. The evil music doesn't seem to be on board with that. Also, Ronnie, miming a Jedi with a lightsaber in the DR is not going to get anyone on your side.
The highlight of Russell's HoH room tour is of course the letter from his dad, and an emotional Russell immediately takes his dad's philosophical advice to heart, thanking Jeff for the HoH win. Afterwards, Jeff and Russell have a meeting in the HoH room where they not only give each other props, but decide to pair up in a secret alliance. Wow, with Russell's physical strength and Jeff's physical strength, nobody would be able to stop them! Except Jessie, of course, who has more physical strength, and all the other people who have other attributes besides physical strength. Yeah, they're wise to keep this alliance secret, if only to prevent people from laughing at them. [I can't wait to hear what kind of stupid name they give themselves. -- Angel]
