I apologize in advance, by the way, for all the times you're going to hear the phrase "back-doored." I don't mean it in the Jim Morrison way. I don't think the houseguests do, either, although I'll tell you, it's not always obvious.
James explains the whole back-dooring thing, saying that Jase dropped out of both HoH and veto competitions last week, so he did it to himself. He wasn't kept out of the veto competition, after all -- he neglected to go for the veto for last week in order to keep in the running for this week, which it turns out isn't relevant, because last week was his last week. I don't know. Third base!
Mike and Will have another DR session in which they pantomime their way through another imaginary phone call. It's a lot like the coconut phone on Survivor, except that Mike's the coconut. Will explains to a disbelieving Coconut Mike that he was on the block, and that even though he told everyone in the house that he hated them all, he didn't get one vote. And then they both laugh hysterically, which is the "Th-th-th-that's all, folks!" of this routine. I think it's really interesting that they've hit on that particular routine, because that's what I've always found appealing about Will's game -- it's not that he thinks he's that smart; it's that he always can't believe how easy people are to fool, which is quite a different thing.
In the DR, Marcellas twitters, "Everybody's sad that Jase left, but I'm not!" I can't wait until Marcellas leaves. I intend not to be sad, appropriately enough. "He behaved badly," Marcellas pronounces, stepping into his favorite role as Arbiter Of That Which Is Moral. I'm not sure when the elections for that position were held, but I think everyone I know must have been in the hospital. Or on the way to the hospital getting carsick, or maybe working. "Good riddance to bad rubbish," Marcellas says, stealing liberally from everyone's grandfather. Jase's picture goes black and white.
There is a house powwow in which Marcellas does one of his other favorite things, which is to invite a bunch of people to discuss the moral inferiority of someone who isn't present. He talks about how he voted out Jase because he just couldn't live with Jase anymore. Too much bad behavior! I do believe he reaches for the word "anathema," but doesn't quite get there. Marcellas also proudly says that he asked Jase whether his mother would approve of the way he was behaving in the house, and Jase admitted that she wouldn't. James quite rightfully points out how ridiculous this is, saying that none of them are exactly living up to their parents' highest expectations for them at this moment. Seriously, would Marcellas's mother have approved of the way he treated Amy in his first season? Would she have approved of the tirade that ended with telling Jase, basically, "You know, nobody likes you!" Danielle explains that she isn't saying that Jase didn't have bad moments, but he also had good moments that she would like to remember, so she's not so interested in sitting around trash-talking Jase the way Marcellas wants to. So what happened here, basically, is that Marcellas lost his audience. Danielle tells us in the DR that "Jase was a man of his word." I'm not sure I'd go that far, lady. But she says she didn't want to hear people "drag him through the mud." The only thing that makes me at all sympathetic to what she's saying is that it's Marcellas, you know? He does this every time. Something happens, and he manages to find the Aesop's fable hiding inside it, and all the Aesop's fables are called "Marcellas and the [Blank]," and in every single one of them, [Blank] is horribly thwarted, while Marcellas becomes the king and gets a crown and has people to give him pedicures for free every day for the rest of his life.
