Mike and Danielle talk in the gym, and he breaks the news to her that he, too, promised to vote out Diane in return for Will's safety. Danielle DRs that she would sort of like to keep Diane just to annoy Janelle, but she's not sure if she can do it. Mike just thinks that it's a bad idea to get something you want and then immediately do what you said you wouldn't.
James and Danielle talk in the backyard as he suns himself. I swear, the fact that I've never seen a single person putting on sunscreen, even casually, just freaks me out. These people are spending half the summer outside in the broiling sun, and I never see them do a thing about it. They're all going to be raisins. Anyway, they talk about how Will is happy to break his word about voting out Diane, but Mike isn't, so much. James says that he doesn't care about his word anymore, because Janelle screwed him. He DRs that he wants to keep Diane to send a message to Janelle. Later, James and Will talk, and James talks about how Mike's vote is secured to Erika...but only sort of. Will insists in the DR that he and Mike are like an "organism" (yuck), and that if he has an argument about why someone should stay, Mike's going to listen to it and be at least open-minded. Will wants to know why James would want to get rid of Erika, and James says it's basically to fuck with Janelle.
In the living room, Diane and James chat about her frustration that she can't get to anyone to have a talk, and she doesn't get why everyone is still doing what Janelle wants. She speculates that if she could get him, Will, Mike, George, and maybe Danielle, she'd be in business. In the DR, she talks about how much she wants to stay, since Janelle "made it personal." "Her ass is mine if I can get to it," Diane vows.
Now, it's time to talk to Janelle in the abomination. "Are you falling for Will?" Julie asks. "No!" Janelle says, with far too much loud disbelief. "Are you serious? No, I'm not, Julie." I'm sure she's not falling for him, but she does have herself a little crush on him, which she's not hiding particularly brilliantly. Julie asks about keeping Will off the block, and Janelle insists she doesn't think Will is a threat to her personally. Interesting how Jase wasn't a threat to James personally, but James was expected to play along for the good of...Janelle, basically. Do you suppose that might be why James is upset? Nah.
Julie asks Janelle about having declared her allegiance to Howie, Marcellas, Kaysar, and James in that order when she was HoH the first time. Janelle bobs and weaves, saying that Marcellas isn't really part of her alliance after all. She talks about how she's more loyal to certain people on "some days" than on other days, which is an interesting definition of the word "loyal." Asked about Mike and Will, she just says they're not in her alliance. Blah blah blah, Janelle is sent back to the living room. Shut up, Janelle.
