Later, the final three move on to a fake-sounding reminiscence of the summer's fights, which cues a flashback to Frank vs. Willie on Day 9, which we relive in its entirety. Maybe even its entirety and then some, because it seems to last forever even in fast-forward mode. But that's just a warm-up to Willie vs. Joe on Day16, when Willie head-pushed Joe and got summarily expelled. If that had been the only thing Joe accomplished in this whole game, his summer wasn't a complete waste. And I can say that with confidence, because it was.
Back in the present, the final three have moved on to the arcade room to fakely discuss the showmance between Danielle and Shane. Danielle admits that the two of them did have a few fights. Then we travel back in time to Day 33, when Shane and Danielle were sniping at each other in the HoH bed and Britney got between them -- literally. The two of them each presented their case to Britney about the pros (Danielle) and cons (Shane) of having a showmance, and Britney tried to smooth things over between them, I think more out of boredom than anything else.
Speaking of abortive showmances, Ian recalls his slop date with Ashley back on Day 9, and so do the editors, at considerable length. It's not any less awkward the second time around. In the present, Dan asks Ian about whether he thinks Ashley would have ultimately chosen him over Frank, and after Ian says he thinks so, we're back at Day 52, when Ian verbally took on a carrot-suited Frank after Ashley's departure. So let's watch that fight again too, shall we? Actually, let's not. Maybe we should skip right to the America's Vote segment, when we're invited to text a vote for our favorite player of the season to win $25,000. Or maybe we should skip that too.
Time to wrap up the clip show from the living room, a space whose significance Dan speechifies unconvincingly about. Danielle recalls Dan's funeral on Day 51, in which Dan emotionally sucked up to everyone else but Danielle, whom he hideously sandbagged while everyone was still crying. Finally, two wrap up this always-painful segment, Ian says that only one Quack Packer can win and proposes a toast: "May the best duck win." They drink to that.
