Post-competition, Shane and Britney and JoJo quietly celebrate (JoJo most quietly, of course, what with her being the consolation evictee at the moment), and then Shane goes to Frank and Mike to offer an insincere apology for messing up their plans. Mike makes like maybe this was the plan, because that's what he does after the fact, and Shane tells them he wants to work with them and not necessarily play for Britney. Mike DRs about how Shane is like a wounded animal you rescue from a bear trap and nurse back to health. "And then you know what you have?" Rabies? No, "a very loyal pet." Mike goes on to say that Shane's already proven his loyalty to Willie, so "imagine what he could do for me!" Mike tells Shane to not tell anyone else in the house about their talk. Which is odd, because I don't think anyone actually agreed to anything.
Shane returns to Britney and JoJo, and Britney is completely suspicious about what Shane was talking about with Frank and Mike. She wonders if they offered him a deal, and he says they didn't. Which, technically, is true.
Dan goes into the Have-Not room with Danielle and tells her that if he tries to help her, she's doomed. She points out that Dan helped Kara. "And look what happened," Dan reminds her. Yeah, duh, Danielle. It seems like Dan's giving up on her, but Dan DRs that this is one of his coaching techniques to motivate his players to help themselves. Okay, then, maybe he should have picked players instead of cute chicks. Shane enters the room, and Dan takes his leave. Danielle seems to realize this is her cue, so she asks Shane if he'll vote for JoJo to stay. Shane's not committing to anything, so after that totally draining exchange, Danielle heaves a resigned sigh and leaves the room to go cry by herself. Well, clearly Dan's coaching technique didn't work.
