And the gloating begins. Dominic figures this means he can start making moves, while Adam is not feeling safe at all, like anyone cares about him one way or the other. And Brendon says it's all down to him and Rachel this week. Again.
America's Vote, Have-Not menu, blah blah who cares.
In the backyard, Rachel and Daniele have a whispered conversation. Rachel seems to be feeling Daniele out by suggesting getting rid of Lawon, which everyone knows is the lowest possible priority for everyone. Daniele wisely doesn't jump on that, instead pressing her idea to get rid of Jeff and Jordan rather than going for anything that saves Dominic. Speaking of whom, Daniele keeps pushing Rachel to trust Dominic. "He has done everything she has asked," Daniele DRs. When she puts it that way...
Dominic has a quiet conversation with Shelly in which the newbies have been downgraded to "stragglers," but he says she's the only one he trusts. Which is awesome, considering she was one of the two people who flipped on the newbie alliance in Week One and handed the whole game to the veterans in the first place. He thinks it's a good idea to shore up his numbers for the eventual vote, so he lays out a whole scenario for Shelly in which the newbies can take control of the house from the veterans by getting rid of Jeff and Brendon. Of course, Dominic doesn't realize that Shelly trusts Jeff and Jordan. If only Shelly's loyalty could have been signaled to Dominic at some point, like say for example by how Jordan invited her to the luxury party this week.
