And then we have to get another eyeful of Julie, who tells the houseguests about the "worldwind [sic]" that is tonight's episode. Everyone looks freaked out, and then Jessica and Jameka are dancing for their lives. Jameka hopes her time in the house isn't over. She's been true to her world throughout the game. Jessica didn't think anything would be harder than sharing the house with her childhood rival (remember that?), but that being nominated against Jameka was worse. She'll be happy whether she stays or goes. To the votes!
Eric is first. Julie uses their time together to tell him that America will still be texting in their votes as to whom Eric should try to get nominated, and that Julie will let him know his target by asking him or her, after the HoH competition, to lead the houseguests back inside. Boy, that's a lot of pressure on Julie not to fuck it up and be all like, "Houseguests! Eric, can you lead...I mean, can you...Zach is...Jameka...But first!" And then she just spontaneously reboots herself.
Anyway, next is Dick. He votes to evict Jessica.
Julie weirdly vamps with Daniele for five minutes before finally remembering to ask for her vote. Of course, she votes with Dick, to evict Jessica.
So Jessica's out. She looks momentarily surprised, but manages to keep it together. She walks straight past Dick, Daniele, and Zach, who all make themselves scarce. Eric hugs her like he's drowning and she's a styrofoam cooler that happened to float by, and she gives him the briefest peck in creation, hugs Jameka, hugs Eric again, and leaves.
Inside, Eric tries to front like he's not surprised. Dick says he's sorry. Eric takes a moment to filibuster, complaining to Daniele that she could have told him. Dick claims, "It was last-minute." Eric just "wanted two days with her," as though he would have REALLY made his move for sure then and totally given her the awkward, eyebrowy rogering that he'd been holding back up until now. Like, as if.
To the Chenderdome! Jessica knew campaigning wouldn't do any good; she thinks they might have changed their votes, once they heard it was going to be a double eviction, because she's such a strong competitor. Julie then asks, of course, what Jessica's future is with Eric, and Jessica squeals, "I love Eric!" in that way you might say, "I love my gay best friend I go clubbing with!" or "I love cookies!" He's been good to her in the house, but she's vague about any relationship they might have when they're both among the general population. Goodbyes: Dick voted her out due to strategy. Zach's sorry he's the one to have been responsible for her nomination. Daniele pleads strategy also. Jameka will miss her. And of course, they save Eric for last. Jessica looks at his image fondly, but doesn't look especially moved. His voice breaking, Eric says that Jessica doesn't know how much he needs her there: "I'm going to be a maniac for as long as I'm here, fighting for your honour. Jessica, I love you!" Jessica's expression: "Oh, shit. Time to get a new cell-phone number." And then, a close-up of her face and chest reveals that Julie's been shot with a glitter gun.
HoH Competition. This will be the last one Jameka can't compete in. The game is "Before Or After." Each contestant is on a set of stairs, stepping back or forward depending on their answers. The game is very close, with each of them taking the lead at various times, but ultimately, Dick wins, obviously. Dick, Daniele, and Zach celebrate elaborately; Eric and Jameka know they're fucked. And then Julie addresses the group: "Daniele, please lead everyone back inside." My guess is Eric won't be chalking this one up in the win column.
