Dan B. and Summer exchange Player-Flirt banter in the minivan. "Nicole was kinda warning me," says Summer. Nicole says in an interview: "I told her, 'Dan's going to try to kiss you! Especially if he's been drinking! He's going to try to kiss you.'" She is still a little wild-eyed over it all -- yeah, he's, like, a kissing bandit, that's it! "I'll wait to see how it plays out," Summer tells Dan. Dan is interviewed saying that he really likes Natasha, but he also really likes "this plot twist." Summer and Dan stroll around some resort town and talk over drinks. Dan tells her he wasn't always so outgoing and that his mom died when he was fifteen. Summer thinks that he has more depth now. Oh, but what we really care about is that Natasha is pissed. Back at the house, she lies petulantly on a chaise lounge. She slouches on a couch. "I'm just gonna try not to think about it, and when they come back, I'm just going to act like I don't care!" she says. Nicole says, "If he tries to kiss Summer tonight? He's not really into Natasha. That's my test." Nicole gets very excited at the thought of being The Dan Barbato Kissing Authority. It's like when you totally flop at the Olympics but get to come back for the next Olympics and do the color commentary.
Here's Maya and Ben together! Yeah, we've seen them. Here's a sunset! Yeah, that, too.
Back to Summer and Dan B.'s date. I have to say that, on this date, Dan B. is neither the sleazebag he was on his date with Nicole or as the smug ass he's been with Natasha. He seems likeable, even. Dan and Summer both admit to being attracted to each other, but that's as far as it seems to go. Mike Fleiss shakes his fist. Curses! They aren't needy enough!
Back at the house, the classmates drink. What else is there to do? Well, play stupid games and drink. Patricia suggests Truth or Dare. God, they're all about these rumor/truth/confessional games. They're all going to get drunk enough to speak their minds anyway, so I don't get why all this multi-tasking is necessary. I guess it's better to be organized about drunkenly blathering secrets and taking off your clothes. They sit around by the pool playing Truth or Dare, and Jeff asks lots of bullshit questions, like is it true that Natasha had a crush on him in high school (well, no) and if it's true that Dave made out with Holly and bragged about it. Dave gets this look of chagrin on his face like, "What? What makes you think I'm the same high holy dicksmack I was three days ago?" Then Natasha dares Dave to kiss Holly on the lips, and he does. In an interview, Dave says that ever since their date Holly has been "letting her guard down" around him. You can tell that he very badly wants to say "top" instead of "guard." In Holly's interview, she says that Dave's "got this really great, sweet side of him that nobody sees." KK: "Yeah, because having a sweet side helps so much when NOBODY SEES IT."
