But first Dan and Danielle have to stage their fight for Ian's...well, not "benefit," exactly. And given that Danielle's pretty pissed off anyway, she might just pull this off. As planned, Dan congratulates Ian (who's irritated at Dan for being so indiscreet in front of Danielle), and Danielle "demands" to know why they're celebrating. She angrily yells at Ian, threatening to tell the jury all manner of horrible things about him. "I don't respond to threats," Ian says maturely in the DR. He and Dan duck into a room, and Ian's upset about the whole fake situation, as planned. But before Dan can even offer his solution of throwing the third part of the HoH so Ian won't have to evict Danielle, Ian shoots it down. "You need to behave yourself, though, because I can't be dealing with that kind of shit." Ian walks out, leaving Dan to whisper to himself, "Ian, you're going to throw it to me." Should he have added, "young Skywalker?"
Time for the first five members of the jury to "gather" on the patio of the jury house to speculate on who's coming next. It's Shane, of course, announcing that he was on the receiving end of the "worst blindside of the season." He sits down with them and tells them all about how he got evicted even though Danielle had both HoH and the PoV. Everyone figures that Dan and Danielle were planning this all along, and even Shane suspects it.
Frank abruptly starts moderating the discussion of who deserves to win, starting with Ian. Joe and Britney argue for Ian's tough decisions and alliance-building, but Frank wishes Ian would have stuck with him. Jenn agrees with Frank that Ian is a rat and plans to vote accordingly. Moving on to Danielle, who most people seem to agree just had to coast and do what Dan told her to get this far. Jenn does point out that Danielle won some competitions, but Shane is still blaming her for his exit.
As for Dan, everyone knows that he's is dangerous and running the house. "Despite what he did to us personally, this game doesn't have any rules," Britney points out. Joe argues that other people have won without playing as unethically. Frank says that swearing on the Bible is over the line. "If Dan and Judas were in the final two, Dan might have my vote," Joe admits. Then they all make some noncommittal noises about how they still don't know what their choice will be, or which one they'll make.
