We open with clips of Sunday's nomination show. Good times. What a ride.
And then we get...even more clips. Blue and white Rehash-O-Vision of Kaysar nominating Nakomis and Diane. Remember? It happened a page ago or so.
It is now Day 12, and Diane is using her time to note the fact that "being nominated sucks." Marcellas says that he's not happy at all about Kaysar's "lame-ass" decision to pass up the chance to go after Mike and Will and instead target "two girls." Girls! Honestly! What a waste of all that nominating power! Girls never win! Marcellas knows that from his season, which was won by...never mind. Anyway. Janelle says that "Kaysar took the easy way out" because he doesn't want to make Mike and Will his enemies. For his part, however, Will thinks that Kaysar bought some time by putting weaker people up rather than immediately going after him and Mike. Nakomis tells Kaysar that she understands it's not personal, but in the DR, she says that she shouldn't have been perceived as threatening. Kaysar returns to his theme that Nakomis is "stealth." He seems overly fearful of her, to me.
For her part, Diane is not doing as well with being nominated. She's actually crying, and the more Kaysar tries to demand that she not be upset, the more upset she gets. He really, really should leave her alone here, and he's totally failing Room Reading 101 by not just going away and letting her relax, but I'm not sure he's ever won any contests in reading people. Kaysar just hovers around the bedroom, waiting for Diane and Nakomis to tell him that they're not upset with him, and telling them that they have no idea how difficult it is. It's just making Diane cry more. Kaysar says he keeps reminding himself that it's just a game, but that's the part where you don't hover and demand absolution. When he's gone, Diane keeps lamenting to Nakomis how tough it is. Nakomis tells us that being put up next to her only real friend in the house is making her particularly unhappy.
