Britney has realized that Matt will do anything and betray anyone, and goes out to talk to Ragan about it. Her opening is, "No matter what happens, you and I are good," which is not the kind of thing you want people saying to you in this house. Ragan's like, what? After hearing that Matt is likely doomed, Ragan is sure he'll be out the door right after Matt, because he still thinks Matt is looking out for him. Britney informs him otherwise.
Pre-veto ceremony, Matt DRs that he "tried to be subtle" about getting Ragan on the block to save the Brigade and himself. There's not one word of that sentence where he succeeded. Britney DRs that everyone wants Matt out except Ragan, and yet that's who Matt threw under the bus. While waiting for Brendon's Veto outside, Ragan and Britney mouth noiselessly to each other about just that.
Brendon convenes the Veto meeting, and obviously uses it on himself, fortunately with a minimum of obnoxiousness. Britney stands to name her replacement nominee, and after giving Brendon his props for earning it (starting the damage control early, I see), she puts Matt up as the replacement nominee. Matt goes and sits next to Enzo, his creepy hood-shrouded nominee-face in full effect. Looks like someone could use another Diamond Power of Veto.
Britney DRs that she nominated Matt because she can't trust him. Stupid Matt actually still thinks the Brigade scrambled to save him, but it didn't work. They just don't make diabolical supergeniuses like they used to. Enzo dismisses Matt in the DR, which stings, but probably not as much as Ragan's pronouncement that he's okay with seeing Matt nominated again: "Matt, I would have fallen on my sword for you, but you ended up stabbing me in the back." Well yes, but Matt did it out of loyalty to the Brigade! And in return the Brigade will now...oooohhh.
