Outside in the hammock, Roddy asks Amy whether he's going home. She says she's doing everything she can. She keeps herself from adding, "So please love me!"
Veto meeting. Gerry manages not to give an annoying speech, and he declines to use the veto. Roddy says in the DR that he's very nervous about the prospect of leaving. As well he should be. Take a moment, incidentally, to observe the downfall of the Goober Alliance. Of the first five people permanently out of the house, four are going to wind up being Goobers. That was one powerful alliance they got going, huh? I think they forgot that the idea of all the co-operation was not to get evicted. Later, in the Big Bed Room, Roddy confronts Danielle about her ongoing efforts to get him booted, and specifically nails her on her efforts to turn Jason against him. She denies it, but she confesses in the DR that what Roddy accused her of was almost a direct quote from what she said about her own strategy. And who obviously tattled on her? Marcellas. Danielle proclaims to Lisa later that Marcellas has "turned." Danielle's rather misguided panicky response to learning that she is as busted as Martha Stewart is to suggest to Lisa that they have to cover by "doing the opposite" of what Roddy expects in order to mislead him as to whether they're trying to get rid of him -- meaning what, boot Kiki? Danielle, you goof. You don't have to worry about what he thinks if you get rid of him. Lisa points out this fact. Danielle acts like she's ruminating on the complexities. Frankly, I think she's got herself tied up in so many knots of strategy that she can no longer see what's obvious. She's about to Houdini herself into a real blunder.
Danielle, Jason, and Lisa talk about being conflicted about what to do, because they really would rather boot Roddy from a strategic viewpoint, but they know Amy really wants Chiara out and will react very badly if they evict him instead. We'll just have to wait for the live show, I suppose. I can hardly wait.
Thursday. Previously, Sheryl Crow needed a brush.
Julie Chen is sitting in the Chenterview area. She has shunned her usual pirate chic, and today has returned to her alternate theme of basing her outfit on reflective upholstery. Her shirt is made of almost the same shiny stuff that was on the chairs in our kitchen when I was growing up. I always thought those chairs were really, really ugly. Of course, the legs were a little more filled out than Julie's. (Rimshot.) Julie recaps recent events. Nominations, veto, et cetera. Julie does her stroll toward the camera as she reveals that, in the house, people are attempting to influence each other's votes and form alliances. She also reveals that even Sheryl Crow was not enough to solve all the personal problems these people had with each other. Maybe if she had sung another song.
