Andy then goes to Amanda and McCrae to get more reassurances that he did the right thing, and mentions that Helen wanted to come after them. So Amanda advises Andy and McCrae to go make their own fake final three deal with Helen so they'll be safe. As if Helen wouldn't see right through that, right?
McCrae is the first to approach Helen, who says she would totally expect Amanda and McCrae to take each other to the end. McCrae acts concerned that Amanda would beat him in the jury vote, and Helen doesn't think she could win against Amanda either. McCrae tells her he wants to take Helen and Andy to the end, which Helen totally believes.
Time to pick the Veto players. No more MVP, no more third nominee, so it's just Andy, Spencer and Jessie at the front of the room. They each draw a chip to randomly select the other players. Andy picks Helen, Jessie Elissa and Spencer Amanda. Andy names McCrae as the host of the competition, sending McCrae into a Begnini-esque celebration that Amanda declares "so embarrassing." She's not wrong.
After that's over, Helen and McCrae decide to have their meeting with Andy, who really needs to stop grinning like he doesn't know what they're going to say. But Helen doesn't appear to suspect anything. I guess people have been scared to lie to her for so long that she's not even watching out for it any more. McCrae does a much better job of fake-pitching this fake plan to Andy in front of Helen. It's going very smoothly, at least until Amanda comes in. Good thing two of the people in here are only fake-plotting against her. Amanda's all excited about getting to compete in a PoV competition and maybe win something for the first time ever, and as Elissa joins them, McCrae starts talking strategy for a counting game that may or may not even be this Veto competition. Amanda suggests they all throw it for Helen, because Amanda wants Helen to think she trusts her. Wheels within wheels, here. Andy and McCrae decide to go to Spencer to tell him to do the same thing. This is an airtight plan, as long as Jessie doesn't win. And as long as Spencer is cool with throwing a PoV competition during a week when he's nominated. "What do they think, I'm some rube?" he DRs. In other words, Spencer agrees to throw the Veto competition, but has no intention of actually throwing the Veto competition.
McCrae comes out of the DR dressed like some old-timey magician and leads them out to a backyard that's made up like old-timey horror movie sets. Thematically it seems a little inconsistent. I'm also disappointed to see that it's a counting competition, just as they were speculating earlier, because I hate it when these people are right. The players get a few minutes to look at the sets and then take their places at their game-show booths. McCrae explains the rules: each player is supposed to try to earn three movie tickets, by answering a question about one of the movie sets. Each player will write down a number and then, after hearing everyone else's guesses, either "stay" or "fold." The person who "stays" with the closest guess wins a ticket, but the person who "stays" who is off by the most is out of the game. But of course this is all academic because four of the players are supposed to be trying to throw the game for Helen. And three of them actually will be.
