Here we go. Ryan DRs that he wants to win, to hold onto the power. Sheila DRs that she or Adam has to win, and she hopes he has her back like she has his. Adam thinks he'll stay, as long as Sharon doesn't win this one. But Sharon thinks her worst-case scenario is for Adam or Sheila to win, since she believes they'll stick together. Anyway, the game goes on roughly interminably. The walls not only serve to keep the players from cheating off of each other, it also allows the editors to cut it together any way they want to make it seem close. Not that they do that, because Ryan wins the PoV by what looks like a fairly wide margin.
Sheila DRs that she doesn't know what's happening next. Sharon DRs that her only hope is for Ryan to come through for his secret ally. Adam realizes that he's either on the block or the deciding vote. And Ryan congratulates himself on his position of power, which he thinks makes his butt totally kissworthy. I sort of miss the days when there were too many players to get everyone's DR reaction to every event, but being this close to the end more than makes up for it.
After the ads, Julie tells us some stuff we already know before putting us back in the house. Ryan is cajoling and coaxing and threatening Adam to vote Sheila out, but is doubting whether he can trust him.
Later, Adam asks Sharon for advice, as though she's a disinterested party here. He even offers to promise to keep her if she promises to keep him in return. Sharon declines, which arouses Adam's suspicions that something's up between Sharon and Ryan. Otherwise, why wouldn't she take the deal? Sharon looks worried for the first time I can remember.
Sharon goes to Ryan to report this, and now they're both less trusting of Adam than ever before. Meanwhile, Sheila goes to Adam to once again lean on him to keep Sheila, because Sheila will keep Adam but Sharon wouldn't. She gets tearful as she reminds him that she's had his back all along. Having said her piece, she leaves him to return to his Bible study, which he resumes as though nothing just happened.
