Daniele and Kalia have a little check-in meeting, talking about how Brendon is doomed and how Daniele even has plausible deniability on the deal she made with them. "My HoHs rock!" she titters.
The next morning, a speaker in the HN room rings, and Shelly's talking to her husband at home. He lies that she's doing awesome and adds that everyone back home is pulling for her. There's obviously a lot of crying when her eight-year-old gets on the phone with her, and almost none of it is mine. What do you want from me? I have a kid too, you know. And he's also far away from me right now. All the way upstairs. Just like that, the call's over, and Shelly collapses crying on the bed. "This by far is my happiest day in this house ever," she sobs. Yikes, hate to see what a sad day would look like.
The others go to the door of the HN room, and Daniele calls through the door that there are three hours left. Of course she's just fucking with someone again, and Shelly's welcomed back into the house.
Brendon and Rachel visit Daniele, supposedly to confirm the deal but really just to make insinuations. Brendon says that "somebody" might have thrown the Veto competition and Rachel comes right out and asks if there's a deal with Jeff. Daniele pleads ignorance, and Rachel suggests backdooring either Jeff or Jordan. Rachel brings up the "Jeff army" (Jordan, Adam, and Shelly, according to the editors), and the money Jeff keeps winning. They argue that the three of them can get through this game together, and Daniele promises again to think about it. She actually looks like she is, unfortunately. Don't do it, Daniele! Not again!
