Howie, James, and Janelle have a quick and whispered conversation in which Howie says that they need to try to keep the target off themselves and keep it from looking like they're all working together. Talk about an exercise in futility. Oh, and: remember he said that when we get close to the end of the episode. Janelle interviews again that Danielle and Alison were "rallying the whole house against [her]." She continues to have some shock and amazement over this, as if she cannot imagine how anyone could not like her, when everyone knows she's the most well-liked person ever. Ever! She says that this made her realize "that the BB6 players have to stick together." In other words, "Being in a four-person identifiable group made me a target, which drove home the fact that I need to make that group a lot more conspicuous." James tells Howie and Janelle to just barge in and stop conversations among other people, and Howie DRs that they all have "a price on [their] head."
Outside, Nakomis and Danielle have a conversation in which Nakomis says that unless people break it up, they're all going to get stomped by the Season 6 people. For his part, Mike tells Nakomis in another discussion that it's okay with him if Season 6 thinks they're running the show, which they clearly do. Later, Will chats up Danielle about his concerns regarding the four-person S6 group. Danielle DRs that they "need to be dealt with immediately." So now it seems like she did want Janelle out, in which case why did she tell Alison that they should tell Janelle? Again, Danielle makes no sense. She insists in the DR that "it makes perfect sense that Jase should have disagreed." Which is fine, unless you're Jase. If that had been Danielle, she would not have put herself on the block, and rightly so. "How do you break that team up?" Diane asks Will and Danielle. Nice nerd glasses, Diane.
Marcellas, whom I had almost forgotten (it felt great!), walks in to talk to Erika and Janelle. Janelle asks him how he feels about Alison leaving, and he and Erika agree that they want to get rid of their adversaries from their prior seasons, because of course, there's no better reason for a vote now than your grievances from three or four years ago. If you ever question whether people are or are not good at keeping in mind that they are playing a game akin to chess, rather than engaging in an actual personal situation akin to building your own society from scratch, this should help. Marcellas insists that he can't vote to keep Danielle in the house, and Erika has the same thing to say about Alison. They do agree that Danielle is terrible at competitions, while Alison is good at them. He tells us that he's been "vacillating" about what to do. Marcellas says that Danielle's jugular is exposed and "it is too juicy" for him to let go. Pretty violent metaphor for a guy who specializes in making sure other guys get needed facials.
