Kent and Bunky stand outside and discuss, in hushed tones, the fact that they can't trust Krusta or Hardy. Apparently.
Krusta's still on her virulent anti-Kent rampage, and, honestly, I don't get why she's so pissed. He said she was deceitful. From what I've read about the live feeds, duplicity is the least of Krusta's problems. Also, so what? They're all being deceitful to a certain extent, and she nominated him earlier in the game. Turnabout, fair play, and so on. "If I stay in the house, Kent's really gonna get it. He's gonna feel the reap," Krusta says. Huh? Is that a riff on the old Blue Oyster Cult song, "Don't Fear The Reaper"? Is "the reap" short for "the Grim Reaper," and Krusta is, in effect, saying that she plans to kill Kent? Is she referring to the phrase "reaping what [you] sow"? Is she just smoking crack?
Then the earth starts turning backward on its axis, blood rains from the skies, the seas boil, and the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse take to the streets: Hardy, Will, and Nicole pinky-swear an alliance in the bathroom. Hardy. Will. Aligned. People, we have reached the end time.
Kent sits out on the patio, alone, talking to the camera. He softly calls the young'uns inside the house "freaks," and says that the really cool and hip people are "moms and dads." Poor Kent. He seems so lonely and depressed. I feel for him. "The love of a child, or the love of a mate, is the kind of thing that will last forever. These are the kind of people I hope my children don't grow up to be," he muses. That makes two of us, Kent, and I don't even have any children.
Time to meet the families of this week's nominees. First, we travel to Opelousas, Louisiana, which is extremely green and pretty. Krusta's friends and boss say how friendly and nice and well-liked and well-known Krusta is, although her boss admits that since Big Brother has started airing, people have become "concerned about her." Yeah, because she's chugging NyQuil and macking with a knife-welding psycho. Krusta's friend Casey wrinkles her nose. "I don't think Mike's that cute. I don't know what she's thinking. I don't know why she hasn't gone for Hardy," Casey says. Up until the last ten minutes, I would have agreed with Casey wholeheartedly. Now that Hardy has joined the Forces of Darkness, I don't know what to think. I also don't know what to think about the fact that the Forces of Darkness, namely Will, have totally grown on me. The funny: it weakens me.
