Later, Will and Janelle chat about the reputed "new power" in the HoH room. He tells us in the DR that he isn't sure what was up with the sheep, so he needs another clue. He also tells us that it's very important for him and Mike to control this power, because they're "in a precarious position this week." And just like that, we are taken into the backyard, where the houseguests are being presented with their second clue, which is an oversized spool of thread and a needle. James tells us in the DR that a needle pulls thread, so his wool-pulling guess could still be right. Also, he's pretty sure he can move that rubber-tree plant. Mike asks Will about "a wolf in sheep's clothing" as a possibility. Will can't see how that would relate to the needle and thread. Details, details. George stares at the clue, trying to figure out what sewing has to do with "you are expected to expect the unexpected." He says, "Could be the Green Giant's toothpick." Still wouldn't make his guess any better. Maybe that's what's unexpected!
Mike and Will talk some more. They iron out the business about the apparently female sheep (pink bow) being called a "ewe." Marcellas ponders the clue in the red bedroom. Will is running through possibilities with Mike: "You reap what you sow," "a stitch in time saves nine," and "spinning the yarn" come up. In the red bedroom, Marcellas says, "Blanket of immunity." Yeah, good one. Aw, in honor of that answer, I feel we should all pause for a moment of silence in honor of Baby Fishmouth.
Anyway, outside, Will brings up "oh what a tangled web we weave," which has nothing to do with sheep or sewing. Focus, Dr. Evil!
Janelle whispers in Howie's ear: "Wolf in sheep's clothing." Howie then busts out one of my favorite lines of the season: "Yeah! If there's a wolf or clothing in the next one it's a done deal!" Oh...Howie. You know how Brian Wilson once sang, "I just wasn't made for these times?" Howie is the Brian Wilson of logic. Janelle, knowing it doesn't really seem like a very good guess, tells Howie that he should guess this one, and she'll guess after the next clue. In the DR, Janelle says that she thought maybe after the sewing, the next clue would be a sweater, and then there might be wolf. Ooookay. So she was thinking maybe the clue that had nothing to do with what she guessed would be followed by two clues that had something to do with what she guessed. It's one way to go, I suppose.
