Britney and Frank are left to confer, and Britney suggests that Frank threaten Ian with a replacement-nomination of Britney if Ian uses his Veto in a way Frank doesn't like. Britney DRs that her best-case scenario is for Dan and Danielle to both be nominated, and then both vetoed, and thus the whole Quack Pack is safe for the week. Frank and Britney go to Ian, who doesn't want to commit to anything other than tossing his new Veto ball up and down in front of him, which is a good way to watch it get snatched out of the air and stepped on. Frank DRs that he's considering nominating Ian, forcing him to use the Veto on himself rather than on Dan. At least then he'd know what Ian would do.
We cut right to the nomination ceremony. Frank's wearing a "Coach Boogie" t-shirt as he starts pulling keys. Safe tonight are, in order, Jenn, Ian, Joe, Britney, and Shane. So that's Dan and Danielle on the block, as Frank proposed earlier. Frank dedicates his nominations to Mike and Danielle, telling Dan that he's been trying to get Frank out for weeks, and Danielle that she's a victim of circumstance. Danielle weeps in the DR how "this is the absolute worst thing that could happen to me," because Danielle has a tough life.
Ian DRs that he's not nominated and he has a Veto that Frank doesn't want him to use, and neither does Ian himself. "But a lot could change between now and the Veto meeting." Frank DRs about how he's putting his faith in Britney and Ian. "I don't want to take a shot and miss." Dan DRs that he might just be able to get Ian to use the Veto on him. As we close out for the night, the announcer asks us whether Ian will indeed use his veto on either Dan or Danielle, and who will win the second PoV. Like we don't already know it's going to be Frank.
