Time to visit the jury house. Chelsia misses James. Funny, I haven't missed him at all. Joshuah is still pissed at having been evicted by Natalie. Matt's getting stir-crazy, stuck in a house with people he didn't like in the first place. They're all waiting in the living room when James arrives. Hugs and toasts all around.
James shows them the DVD of the previous week's key moments, which we already know about: Adam won HoH and didn't nominate James, James lost the PoV, and got backdoored in 3-0 vote. Then James gives a lecture about how important is in to leave the house on a good note, which is his set up for how he blames Chelsia for his eviction. Never mind that the house spent four whole weeks doing nothing but trying to evict James; he's now decided that the reason he was voted out was because people saw him as "the residue of Chelsia." Yeah, like I said, I haven't missed the self-righteous prick at all. Chelsia gets up and leaves the room in tears, shutting herself into her bedroom. He follows her in, asking her all innocently, "What's wrong?" like he didn't just say something really mean to her for no good reason. He tells her not to feel bad, and tells her what he told Julie: he came in as a homeless cyclist and ended up falling for a great girl. Does he really think that's going to make it all better? Well if he does, he's absolutely correct. He and Chelsia are good again. Oh, puke.
DR comments: Ryan is considering keeping Natalie for her loyalty, but is worried about getting beat by her in competitions down the road. Adam is also torn, although his babbling is so incoherent (as in even more so than usual) I'm not able to follow his pros and cons. Commercials!
Julie does another viewscreen interview, and gives Sharon her chance to speak for herself. She says what she always says and sits down. I think she has a macro. Natalie emotionally gives a speech that might be a farewell or might not, assures the boys of her loyalty to them, and asks to stay. Ryan is the first to go to the DR to vote, and he votes to evict...Natalie. When it's Adam's turn, he votes to evict Sharon. So it's a tie, and Sheila's not going to be happy. Commercials again! That right there is my favorite part of every week on this show.
After the ads, Julie announces to the houseguests that it's a tie. Sheila tries not to piss her pants as Julie tells her to stand cast the tiebreaking vote. Sheila stands and says that Natalie just said her loyalties are with the boys, so Natalie's got to go, for Sheila's own protection. Natalie cries as she hugs everyone goodbye, leaving a subdued foursome behind in the house.
