More time passes, and Mike appears in front of Dick with a feathered headdress. Dick says that what Mike is doing makes no sense: "Your alliance is OVER!" Mike says he's showing his loyalty, to the end. Dick counters that the best way to show loyalty to his alliance is to stay off the block: "At least one of you would be in here." At...least one of them will be in the house in any case, Dick. Do you understand how the game works? Mike very straightforwardly says that threats have no effect on him: "It's a game. I'm bigger than this game." Man, I wish people would say shit like that more often. But most of the time they don't actually think it, I guess. Even Mike doesn't, probably. Anyway, he tells Dick it's nothing personal (though why, I don't know; Dick's not playing on a personal level -- clearly). "You're right," says Dick, quietly losing his shit. "It's no big deal," Mike adds, as the spectating houseguests look on in shock. "It's a game. It doesn't affect me." Dick then removes his own glass and stomps off the pedestal, telling Mike he's going on the block instead. Which, other than the part about Mike getting nominated in Jen's place -- which might have happened anyway, given that Dick already thought Kail and Mike were still in league -- means that Dick did EXACTLY WHAT MIKE AND KAIL WANTED by losing the game. Even better, he did it on purpose. Dick, you're a real dumbshit. And I forget if I mentioned it before, but you really do have a face like an old man's nutsack. Please invest in some sunscreen. Mike tries to tell Dick that there are no hard feelings, and that it's just a game, but Dick -- drunk on the power he will enjoy for three whole more days -- snits, "Welcome to the block." Shut up, Dick. Mike DRs that his part in the Veto Competition showed the other houseguests he is loyal and trustworthy. Dick DRs that what Mike just did in getting himself nominated makes him dumber than Marcellas. Yeah, not quite.
