Jason ponders his nominations. He's thinking about not nominating Roddy, but he wants to talk to Roddy first, and he tells this to a rather horrified Danielle. Danielle tells Jason that Roddy told her that Jason can't keep his word, as evidenced by Jason's vote against Eric when Jason had said he'd vote against Lisa. (If you followed that, you are spending too much time watching this show -- too much!) This makes Jason sad, because it's very bad to have Roddy not like you. It means he is a bad person. It means he won't go to heaven. It means girls won't fall in love with him and he won't smell nice and the sky will close up and no more flowers will bloom, ever. Or so he seems to think. Lisa confirms for Jason that Kiki and Roddy badmouthed him as untrustworthy after the Eric issue, and Jason talks about how unfortunate he thinks it is that Roddy is still bringing that up with people. (But not as unfortunate as Up With People. I'm sorry.) (Incidentally, did you know that Up With People still exists? I think that's fascinating. I am much too easily distracted.) Marcellas confirms that he, too, heard the Jason-can't-be-trusted line from Roddy. When Gerry visits Jason in the HoH, Gerry says he wants to see Jason naked in the shower. No, not really. Actually, he and Jason discuss the veto, and Gerry says that he'd be unlikely to use the veto on Roddy if Jason put Roddy up against Amy.
At this point, though, Jason makes a mammoth strategic mistake, and he calls Roddy in for a chat about why, exactly, Roddy has been saying these bad things about Jason. Because he's trying to beat you, dummy! What do you mean, "why"? Sigh. Roddy, given the opportunity to dance, foxtrots divinely as usual, telling Jason that he shouldn't believe everything he hears -- without ever actually denying having said what everyone told Jason he said. There's a lot of talk about trust and believing in each other, and things get a little fuzzy around this time, but somehow Jason ends up feeling guilty. Yeah, I don't know why, either. But he does. And then there is love and crying. So now, as is so often the case when there is love and crying, Jason doesn't know what to do. He suffers endlessly over the keys he has to choose from with the nominations, actually whispers "He's gonna win the game," and then puts the keys in the box. He weeps in the DR, talking about how hard it is and how he doesn't want to let anyone down. Jason? It's a TV show, honey. Put the keys in the damn box and get on with it already -- I'm visibly aging here. I'd like the ceremony to happen before Social Security kicks in.
