Downstairs, Dick smirks that if they can't beat Zach and Jameka, they deserve to go home. Daniele, possibly already kind of psyched out, tells him not to say that. Dick reminds her that she's already won four Veto Competitions: "One more. That's all." Daniele doesn't seem all that thrilled that Dick is talking about the "we" that needs to win this one, while apparently putting all the pressure on her to actually deliver -- especially when she already knows that she is Zach and Jameka's real target.
Upstairs in the HoH room, Zach and Jameka pray. In particular, Jameka prays that God will be vengeful, which is kind of awesome. If He decided to comply, though, I guess that means Jameka really pissed Him off at some point. (Spoiler.) Zach DRs that it's like war.
So the competition begins. It's an overly complicated memory game involving faces and numbers and a spinning wheel, and seems to take a while. Dick goes too fast and makes a wrong guess. Zach takes a few minutes to figure out how the game actually works, and makes a wrong guess. And Daniele, of course, wins. I will forgive her shrieky celebration because she really was probably fucked if she didn't deliver; Jameka probably wouldn't have voted to keep Dick in the game just because she hates him so much, but thinking strategically, Dick really is the person that all remaining players should want opposing them in a final-two situation. But Dick, for someone who didn't win, takes the rejoicing much further than is seemly. As Jameka hugs and congratulates Daniele, Dick starts carrying on, yelling at Zach, "You're not even gonna be in the final two!" Zach maintains his pleasant smile, shrugging. Jameka DRs that she lost to one of the best competitors in the house, and has no one to blame but herself. Back in the yard, as Dick starts Frisbee-ing faces around, "Dick's Theme" kicks out the jams so we know a tantrum is coming. Jameka tells Zach a couple of times that she's sorry, but Zach just serenely says "good job" to Daniele, who seems to be ignoring him. Dick, ever-gracious, flips Zach off, ranting that "it ain't even over" and the Donatos have won. "I definitely played better than you did," says Zach placidly. Dick, now with a total raging rage-on, tells Zach that he dealt out eight of the game's ten evictions. Zach: "And all of them aren't going to vote you because your attitude is awful!" I love how he brings it back to attitude. It's like he's Dick's camp counselor or Little League coach -- both of which institutions Little Dick sorely needed to spend more time in, because it's true; his attitude is awful and he never learned to be a good winner. Or winner's-coattail-rider, in this case. Zach says that he kicked ass either way. Dick mocks him again for calling himself the muscle, to which Zach quietly replies, "Daniele carried you." A simple statement, and yet so utterly true. Dick turns to a new theme -- all the Heads of Household, including Zach, who failed to evict Dick: "Where's your crown?" "I'll be wearing it next week," says Zach. Dick tells Zach to go up to his HoH room and "rethink things." BURN! Zach, heading back inside, tells Dick to get on the treadmill. Oh, good point; the endurance challenge is not the smoking, spitting, potbellied gentleman's friend. Unfortunately, Zach siphons off some of my favour by saying that his mind is like a samurai sword. However, it would take likening his mind to eighty platoons of ninja to make him less appealing than fucking Dick.
Zach having left the area, Dick is free to tell Jameka that he wishes he could take her to the final three -- I guess that was a side-side deal to the deal Dick and Daniele had with Zach that they're so pissed off about him breaking. Jameka sort of waves that off as she goes back inside. Dick soon follows her, bellowing "final three" this and "game over" that, while at the table Zach is totally calm as he says he's grateful to have gotten as far as he did.
