Tonight’s episode is rough, you guys. After the legitimately shocking blindside of Shane by Dan during Thursday’s live show, you’d think Big Brother would jam-pack Sunday’s episode with all sorts of insanity related to the fallout of Dan’s THIRD betrayal of Danielle.
Instead, we get a clip show.
But first! A quick five-minute recap of the period immediately post-eviction. Honestly, I have no idea why they didn’t just air the following Dan/Danielle discussion unedited, for however long it went on, because that would be so much better than, like, re-watching Willie Hantz get kicked out of the house. Willie who? Who the hell were these Jojo and Kara people? Who cares?
Anyway, Danielle is – what else? – weeping in the Diary Room. “Shane, I’m so sorry,” she sobs. “I’m so, so sorry.” Ian is in shock that he’s still here. We see a flashback of Dan grabbing Shane as he leaves the house to whisper to him, “Dude, she’s been playing you the whole time. Ask Jenn.” An interesting ploy to try to win back Shane’s vote, which is definitely never going to happen. Nice try, though, Dan.
Dan then immediately pulls Danielle aside to talk, which we saw a bit of during the live show. Dan explains in the Diary Room that he has Danielle and Ian both wanting to take him to the end, and that Shane wouldn’t have taken him, so now he thinks he’s guaranteed to win. Which is very smart, unless Danielle wins the final HoH and is so mad at Dan (and smart enough to realize he’ll win) to stab HIM in the back and ultimately take Ian. Which, as much as I love Dan, would be pretty awesome and deserved. Sadly, it’ll never happen.
“Why do you continuously lie to me?!” Danielle yells at Dan. Dan immediately launches into a big pep talk, saying he’s coaching her to win and he couldn’t tell her because she’d have to lie to Shane and blah blah blah blah, it’s the same shit we’ve heard the two past times he’s betrayed her. And we all know it’ll somehow work again, which is ridiculous.
Dan blatantly lies to Danielle over and over again, saying he just wants the $50,000 and that he wants to get her the $500,000, and now he says Ian will take Danielle to the end after what Dan just pulled because Ian won’t be able to beat him. (Which, if you think about it, is so, so, so dumb. First of all, SHANE would have taken Danielle to the end, so saying you got rid of Shane to ensure everyone is taking Danielle to the end is just idiotic. Especially because Danielle should know she would have had a much better chance against Shane facing the jury than Ian. Also, telling Danielle that Ian won’t take Dan because Ian knows Dan will beat him should clue Danielle in that she shouldn’t take Dan either. Anyway, that’s why I think this was a terrible move that could fuck him in the end, but that’s assuming that he’s playing against smart people, which he isn’t, so he’ll win.)
