But nooooo. In an interview, Beth Psych 101s David by saying that he was looking to put the blame on anyone else, and thought "hey, Beth! She's the easiest one!" I'll let you make your own Beth Is Easy joke.
Back in the beach house, much screaming commences. David tells Beth that by her definition of rape, she is also a rapist and they both ought to leave the house. She has no snappy comeback to that, so she just turns and stamps up the stairs. Everyone calls her back downstairs, David hollering that she's walking away because she knows she's wrong, but nobody can stop Beth from the swift completion of her appointed rounds. These being: trip to freezer for Ben & Jerry's, trip to bathroom for zit-popping fest, trip to bed to wallow self-righteously and get Cherry Garcia on the pillow case.
Beth voice-overs that she was "not allowing David to harass [her]," as Aaron charges up the stairs after her, taking them two at a time, Irene hot on his trail, and David bringing up the rear. Aaron tells Beth -- interrupting her zit popping -- that David has a right to be heard, and that she can't just walk away from their discussion. Beth doesn't want to talk to David. Period. David pops his head into the bathroom and says he's not going to "get violent," but that he's going to follow her around until she talks to him. Beth insists that she will not talk to him. He insists she will. Aaron rolls his eyes and wonders if he can crash with his bros for, like, the rest of the season.
In an interview, Dom slurs that Beth had no right to refuse to speak to David. Y'all, I think Dom might be drinking.
Back in the house, Dom asks Irene to speak to Beth. Irene does. Then Jon does. Irene informs Jon that none of the girls is going to change her mind about David leaving the house. Jon sighs.
So, Irene and Beth are dramatically sequestered in the bathroom, as David tells the boys downstairs that they all better watch their steps around the girls. Because they are vindictive bitches, doncha know? Jon voice-overs that Aaron thought they were being overly harsh to David, Dom was worried about David's career, and he, Jon, thought that while something had to be done, he didn't know if tossing David onto the street was the best solution to the problem.
Dramatically, David opines that if this incident had happened "in the old days," he would have been lynched. Dom, Aaron and Jon just stare at the floor some more.
Jon tells Irene that he and Aaron and Dom are in a difficult position with David and they don't know what to do. Irene snips that they don't have to do anything. Dom softly ventures that he doesn't think David would do anything else. Irene snips that that's what he thinks and that's fine, but "[Dom]'s not in [David]'s head."
