Nomination time. The editors do their best to jack up tension, as Jen wonders what Kail means about doing "fair" nominations and how it affects her; Joe worries that the tension between himself and Dustin will make him a target; and Dick claims to be "totally concerned" that Daniele will be nominated as "part of the six." Kail feels bad about being the one to crush someone's dreams, because nobody has done anything wrong. "Especially to me," she says. She finishes up her task with the keys in the HoH room, and tucks two of them away in the vault for the eventual dream-crushing process.
Everyone else is sitting around the table as she hauls that giant circular box into the room. It looks pretty heavy and awkward, with all those keys and baggage in it and all. Kail explains how it works: she's going to pull the first person's key, and tell that person they are safe. When all the keys have been pulled, the two people without keys are nominated. Dustin, "Evil," and Jessica get their keys first. Yes, she calls Dick "Evil." Don't encourage him. Kail. She declares, "In the spirit of fairness, let this nomination begin." First to be drawn is Eric. Eric draws Joe. Joe draws Zach. Zach draws Daniele. Daniele draws Jen. Jen draws Mike. Mike draws Jameka. And Jameka draws Nick. That leaves Amber and Carol. As Jessica smirks, Kail stands up and says she nominated those two because they were the first out of the HoH competition.
As the meeting adjourns, Carol says she understands that someone has to be the first to go, and she's just going to have to fight harder. Jessica and her "I [Heart] Marines" t-shirt DR that she's happy to see Carol nominated, "Because somebody could get it taken care of before I have to." Joe says Kail did the right thing, but Dustin is disappointed that Joe wasn't nominated. "This could be a very, very, long, long, drawn-out summer." No shit. A red-eyed Amber feels betrayed by the mom-bond she thinks she has with Kail. And Kail DRs that the reasons she gave the house were truthful, but there was more behind it that nobody else needs to know. And then everyone hugs.
