Oh, remember Chopper? During the credits, the last thing we see before the Mark Burnett production card is Tommy getting right down in the dog's face and waggling his tongue. Chopper nervously licks Tommy' tongue right back. Damn, that's unsanitary. Who knows what kind of gnarly pathogens just got passed to that dog?
Still changing up the intro segment, I see, because Brooke's got the seven Supernovices lined up next to her on the stage instead of sitting in the Nut Gallery. Brooke goes for ominous as she tells them, "Enjoy the applause, because for one of you, it's going to be your last night on this stage." Patrice is already getting her bottom-three smile warmed up as Brooke dispatches them back to the Nut Gallery. Brooke introduces Supernova and her "wingman," Dave. That word, I do not think it means what she thinks it means. They remind us that there's going to be another Supernova performance, fronted by one of the remaining Supernovices. But before we get to that, Brooke sets the wayback machine to last night. If you need to be reminded what happened, that's what the numbers at the bottom of your computer screen are for.
Back at the Mansion, the Supernovices are sitting down to dinner, and Dilana opens up the post-mortem discussion with this charming tidbit: "I just want to say, Ryan, you would have been nothing without that House Band." Okay, I know I just complimented the House Band, too, but I wasn't quite so rude about it. The room goes quiet, and Ryan's like, "Thanks?" There's an unnecessary interview clip where Ryan tells us what just happened. And then we're back in the dining room, where Dilana refuses to shut up. "You rocked," she clarifies, and Ryan thanks her again. "But without that House Band...." Ryan tries to stop her right there, but Dilana insists, "That's the way I want to say it." Ryan tells the interview camera, "Come on, just let me have a moment. Let me have one thing." Sitting at home, Dana's like, "Hey!"
Dilana still won't let it go, though, and even pursues Ryan outside, where he and Magni are having a smoke. "You know why I'm getting more votes than you, Ryan?" Dilana smugs. "'Cause you're prettier?" Ryan tries. Dilana self-righteously explains, "Because from week one, I gave everything I had." Magni tries to jump in indignantly at the implication that everyone else is just coasting. There's some tense crosstalk, and then Magni gets in a dig about Dilana doing the same thing every week, bumping fists kind of obnoxiously with Ryan as he does so. "I need eyelashes!" Magni mocks. Ryan gives the interview camera a little lecture on good sportsmanship, which Dilana isn't so much displaying this week. You can hear the studio audience reacting to this, and they sound like they're down with Ryan.
