More Will and Janelle flirting. She says that it "gives [her] something to do." She also says "flirting makes you feel good." Hmm, if she says so. She tells us that it's fun "toying with Will." That at least makes me feel a little bit better about watching Will toying with her, I'll say that much. Then, they are both in the DR together. "She has a crush on me," Will grins. Janelle says, "No I don't, Will." He turns to her. "Little bit." "No, I don't," she weakly protests. He is surprised: "A lot?" "No, not a lot," she says, again weakly. "You have a crush on me," she argues. "That's not true," he says, looking back to the camera. "On a scale of one to two," he says, looking seriously at the camera. She cuts in with, "I swear to God, I'll hate you so much." And he says, "I give her a solid one." And then she jumps him. Because she's "mad." I hope she's having fun "toying with Will." This goes on outside in the hot tub, and there's more flirting, and ultimately, he asks her what would happen if they were the last two people on earth, and civilization depended on their continuing the species. "I wouldn't like you, but I'd still have sex with you," she says. He pauses. "Yeah, you would," he says with mock satisfaction. You know, this isn't even really fun, because she's so stupid and uninteresting, and at this kind of game, she's not even a challenge for him. I would have loved to see him flirt with someone who would have been like, "You're funny, but you're full of shit, and you're a child, so go sit over there and be quiet." I would have loved to see him flirt with somebody who was an actual match for him, like...oh, wait. They never put women on this show who would be a match for him. My mistake.
Mike visits Erika in the HoH room, and she has to go over and get her smooches, which is so icky. She wants to know what's going on with Janelle, and then she says, "Will's going up." Mike visibly blanches. "You won't put Danielle up?" he asks. "Don't we want to send Will to the jury?" she asks. And she asks it like they've talked about this a lot, so I return to my theory that Mike's greatest dream in this game is to be the one who takes out Will, because he has spent five years living in the shadow of Dr. Awesome, and his aspiration is to be Will's executioner and then be all, "Just a game, buddy!" Mike says, "Not now!" And then he says, "If you're doing that, you're committing in one direction." "Well, we have to talk. Let's talk," she answers. She keeps being so close to being smarter, and then she gets stupid again. Mike tells her that she has to treat Will as an individual, and says that he'll be upset with her. "You and I have talked about sending Will to the jury," she says. He agrees, but he tells her that it's too soon. She asks the big question by inquiring as to whether Mike's main allegiance is to her or to Will, because hers is to Mike. He refuses to tell her the answer, really, but says that he'd be happy to send Will to the jury -- another time. Mike tries to tell Erika that Danielle is "aggravating" in that she runs to wherever the power is. He DRs that his "allegiance is to Will," but that he needs Erika to think he might take her to the finals. And then the two of them are snuggled in the HoH bed, and she says, "If I find out you're playing me after this, I'll fucking kick your ass." Over her shoulder, he grins, self-satisfied.
