Amber brings this offer to Dustin, and we can see she's bought Dick's line that Eric is the one tearing the house apart. She says this deal will buy them a week's worth of safety and allow them to repair all the "damage" Eric did to their alliance with D&D. Oh, Amber. Dustin begs her to play with her brain and not her emotions. He says he wants Dick gone more than Eric. Amber says if Eric wins HoH, he'll either put up her and Dustin or D&D. Dude, Dick has her so twisted. She actually thinks Eric will nominate her and Dustin. She's not budging, she wants Eric gone. Dustin finally says he'll vote off Eric, then, so Amber won't have to kill her daughter to appease Jesus. Amber goes along with this, despite the flashing red "LIAR!" sign above Dustin's head.
So then later, with the entire house either on the couches or in the kitchen, Amber calls Eric out, telling him he's lucky she'd already swore on her kid's life (oh, Jesus), because otherwise she'd be voting him out. She starts yelling at him about telling Dick his intention to hold this secret over head, this shameful lie she told her boyfriend when she was on drugs, and how dare he intend to use that against her in the game. Eric doesn't say anything, doesn't interrupt her, doesn't roll his eyes. I can believe that maybe he never intended to go through with it and he was just posturing to Dick, but that's what you get when you attempt to make Dick think you're cool by sinking to his level. And you know, on the Amber Sliding Scale Of Ocular Wetness, she manages to get through way more of this whole speech without crying than I thought she would. She got more weepy about Dustin's greedy greed and dear departed Nick than she did about this. Speaking of the recently deceased, Amber kind of deep-sixes her own righteousness at the end there as she starts to rant about how Nick was a GOOD PERSON and Eric SCHEMED AND PLOTTED his demise and Nick SHOULD STILL BE HERE. Dustin lets a smirk out while she's doing this, because while her anger may be largely righteous, bitch still crazy. Julie Chen takes us to commercial before we get to hear Eric respond to this, if he in fact ever did.
Holy shit, that was only 20 minutes. Will we ever have time for all the Thursday filler? Like, for example, Julie talking to the houseguests. She asks Jameka about the Amber/Eric confrontation, because, naturally, we all want to hear from Jameka on this subject. Jameka says it was emotional, but that "everything's fine" now. Okay, how? Can we see that part? Jameka also says she regrets giving up the 5 HoH competitions, like, no kidding. Jen says she doesn't regret giving up $250,000 in potential prize money, because she's here for the experience. The experience of being berated by a leather-faced asswipe, apparently. Julie hurls a viewer question at Dustin about why he's always wearing that grey v-neck shirt. Everybody laughs their asses off and Dustin jokes that it is a symbol of his personal consistency. Also, that chest hair needs to breathe!
