Outside, it turns out that this is a competition playing golf with giant foam golf balls and giant, toy clubs. It's basically Wiffle Golf. Shall we make a long story short, as we do with these three-episode recaps? Erika is head and shoulders above anyone else, and she wins easily. It takes a long time, and there is an enormous amount of unnecessary exposition, but that is the bottom line. Erika = winner. Foam clubs = hard to manipulate. Diane and Nakomis recognize that this development is not good for them. Diane notes in the DR, "I've been praying every day, and it hasn't done shit yet." Heh. Maybe she's swearing and her prayers are being censored. Erika says that she loves having the power, and she's going to be thinking through her options before failing to use it. Oh, sorry. Before deciding whether to use it. Sometimes, I skip ahead.
When we return, Danielle is talking to Diane and Nakomis about how much it sucks to be on the block, since now she's all experienced with it and everything. Diane insists that if Erika were smart, she'd veto one of them and bring the wrath of everyone down on the S6 group, but she knows she won't. I'm not sure why Diane isn't remembering that Erika can't bring it down on the S6 group, because the person making the other nomination would be Kaysar, and he's not going to put up another S6 person. Sometimes I think people genuinely forget that the veto holder can't make the substitute nomination. Nakomis says in the DR that anything's possible, but she doesn't think Erika will use the veto. Nakomis and Diane also agree not to campaign against each other, no matter what. They'll be holding to that for sure!
And then, it's Mike's birthday. Of course, slop-eating folks cannot participate, but the rest of the houseguests get sushi and champagne and cake and so forth. Mike's favorite part is that Erika has written "Happy Birthday" in whipped cream on her thigh, which is the best thing that's ever happened to him, in a "it seems like it should be" kind of way. He also kind of enjoys the part where the S6 alliance, for the most part, can't eat any. Will tells us that Howie wanted the sushi bad, and was suffering over being stuck with slop. And Will would know, because he's seen Howie express lust before. Howie complains that those eating party food were "rubbing it in Jedi Howie's face." (Better than referring to yourself in the third person? Referring to yourself by your Jedi name.) Marcellas, of course, bitches that the people eating were mean because he can almost always find a way in which it turns out that he's better than everyone. He and Janelle agree that they would have turned down the party if it had been given to them, because they wouldn't have wanted other people not to get anything. Which is SUCH bullshit, but you know that.
