Hi, guys! Let’s all be in a good mood, because Big Brother is VERY ENTERTAINING tonight, for the first time in what feels like years. Ever since the backstabbing of Janelle, the house has been more or less chaos, with no strong alliance sticking together, and I just love, love, love it. The veterans are dropping like flies, no one can trust anyone for more than a week, and it’s just vintage, fantastic Big Brother. Plus: every single person cries tonight! Hooray!
Let’s not skip to the second half of the episode, even though I REALLY WANT TO TALK ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS. (And let me say here: I’m very glad I don’t follow the live feeds, because this was an absolute delight to watch unfold on TV, with no prior knowledge.)
Anyway, I’m getting too excited. Let’s start at the beginning. Previously: Ian was good for a while, and then he started to really fuck up. Also: Boogie was voted out before the jury, which means we won’t have to see him until the finale night, and that is simply the best. We watch the patented Big Brother Black and White Flashback of the nomination ceremony, as Frank nominates Dan and Danielle.
Danielle sobs in the Diary Room, thus breaking the seal on her tear ducts, which will be flowing uncontrollably for the next 43 minutes. Dan, however, is already planning to talk Ian into using his special second Power of Veto this week to save him. But Frank is working with Ian and Britney now, so things look pretty grim for Dan.
Britney, however, has a master plan! And it’s actually pretty great! She explains to Dan that if she or Shane win the Veto, then Ian can use the Veto on Dan, she and Shane can use the Veto on Danielle, and then the whole Quack Pack (ugh) will be safe for the week and Frank will have to waste a week getting rid of Joe or Jenn. For me, this is just the best news ever, because it’s time to cut out the dead chef/punk weight in the house. Who would have thought the little girl who got duped by an idiot like Lane could come up with a good plan?
Solidifying my conviction that Britney is running the game, she sits Ian down, explains her plan, and then tells him that if she or Shane don’t win the Veto, it’s time for them to cut Dan loose. Everyone start a slow clap for Britney (she’s going to need our support later, spoiler alert).
Veto competition time! Like, five minutes into the episode? First sign that actual SHIT is going to go down. Finally. Frank picks Shane, and Danielle picks Britney, which is just perfect. Dan gets Houseguests Choice, so he picks Jenn because he assumes she sucks. Dan Diary Rooms that for Britney’s plan to work, he needs to throw the competition, but UH OH looks like Dan ISN’T throwing the competition, because he doesn’t trust anyone and winning is the only way to keep himself safe. Lots of back-stabbing happening already in this episode, and I am very pleased.
