Josh talks to Gerry (!) about how nervous he is about the veto. He doesn't want to see a veto happen and wind up nominated himself. Eric calls the veto meeting, so it's once more around the living-room sofas. Marcellas voices over that he was hoping Eric would "do something truly courageous...like veto me." It's quite a coincidence, isn't it, that Marcellas has noticed that the righteous thing for Eric to do would be the thing that happens to benefit Marcellas? It's so wonderful when all of morality is aligned at your side as you battle on for...well, for yourself. At any rate, Eric tries incredibly hard to be serious and grave. He gives the nominees the opportunity to make a statement. Amy starts by falling on the floor and grabbing his leg and begging to be vetoed. No, really. Then she composes herself and says she's sure he's already decided, so she has nothing to say. Way to go, there, Amy. Marcellas just sits and stares coldly, legs crossed, arms folded, and refuses to say anything. What a snot he's turned into in a short time. Can't we evict both of them? Eric rubs his hands together and announces that he has decided not to use the veto, which doesn't come as much of a surprise to anyone. He assures them that it's not personal, and wraps up with "I love you both." Again with the false "I love you"s, which I really do not like. Eric boxes up the veto medal.
Amy diary-rooms, more perceptively than usual, that what's frustrating her is that she knows she's on the block because of how she acted. Marcellas goes into some more highly moralistic blather about how the people in the house "stab you in the back" and so forth. He goes on to lament that if Amy hadn't done so much drinking and been so self-centered, then they both wouldn't be in this mess. That's partly true, but it is also true that the two of them participated together in determining that they were superior to everyone else, and making that very, very clear to everyone. Amy was the worse offender, but they were both responsible for the phenomenon. He goes on to feel sorry for himself some more, saying that he "knew Amy was a liability," and how "in this house, you can't have strong relationships," like, boo hoo hoo. Seriously, Marcellas often acted just as bitchy and alienating toward the other people in the house as she did, so although I do think Amy's the main reason Roddy made this particular choice, I think the two of them as a pair made it very easy to do.
They diary-room some more about how unfair it all is, and then we're mercifully out. Bring on the eviction, because one less person to annoy me will be...well, one less person to annoy me.
