Britney happily enters the HoH room, where Shane informs her, "You're so lucky you picked me." He figures they have a lot of options now, what with him as both HoH and PoV holder, but Britney now seems fully on board with taking it out of Janelle's ass, given all the pouting that's going on with her team. Then she launches into a hilarious impression of Joe, slouching on Shane's couch and bellowing in a Chewbacca voice. See, this is why I like Britney. They see on the monitor that Janelle is already on her way up, but right now Britney's main concern is getting Joe's recipes before he leaves.
Once she's in the room, Janelle tries to repeat the case to get rid of Frank rather than taking out her own players, who, as Janelle correctly points out, can't seem to win anything anyway. Britney argues that Janelle's players haven't exactly reached out to Shane, moments before they're joined by Wil and Ashley. Shane tells them all that he's got to think about next week, when he won't be HoH, and Janelle maintains that they can make a deal for even longer, if they go after Mike's team instead. Janelle is so eager to win their trust that she offers her wedding ring as collateral to keep for three weeks if she screws them. "You're crazy," Britney says, immediately picking up the ring and putting it on. They refuse to keep it, but Janelle's point is made. Now her only concern is to get ahead of whatever nefarious scheme Mike is no doubt working on behind everyone's back.
Cut to Mike talking workout tips with Frank. So clearly he's on top of everything.
Janelle has a private talk with Joe, telling him he needs to go upstairs and grovel and convince Shane to backdoor Frank, or he's going home. "You have to," she tells him. Think he will?
Later, Joe asks for a few minutes in the HoH room with Shane, and says he's going home if Shane doesn't save him, and if he does, he'll be extremely loyal to Shane. In fact, he offers to work with Shane outside his team, and promises to be there for Shane, swearing on his whole family. Even so, Shane's not convinced. But Joe seems sincere, as even in the DR he promises to have Shane's back more than his own. Now just imagine how much more pissed Joe's going to be when Shane leaves him hanging.
