Willie calls a Team Janelle/Britney meeting up in the HoH room, and they pack all 50 members of their alliance into this small room. Honestly, this is the biggest alliance ever. It’s destined to fail immediately. Wil says he wants to keep Frank, because he’s a “better ally.” Britney agrees they should keep Frank, because then they only have to get rid of Danielle and then Dan will leave the game as well (when was this made clear to us? How do we know that Dan won’t join the game as a player once he loses all his teammates?). She says Dan is the most dangerous guy in the house because “when he talks to you, you hear an angel chorus,” and she says Kara is just playing like a robot, doing whatever Dan wants her to do.
Later in the yard, Janelle talks with Dan and tells him the group is voting to get rid of Kara. She’s trying to make sure that he’s okay with her still, which is a pretty dumb thing to do in front of everybody else. Of course, since she’s doing this in the open, Britney sees and knows what she’s up to.
The giant hat functions like bat ears, allowing her to hear all conversations in the house.
Continuing on the Britney-figuring-things-out train, she notices the pictures of the coaches on the memory wall also have keys next to them, which leads her to believe that the coaches will eventually start playing the game for themselves. Pretty big oversight by Big Brother to not realize they were giving up their big twist by doing that, right? Again: this show is clearly run by a team of interns.
She talks to Willie alone upstairs and tells him her theory. She points out that there are only 11 people left in the game, but there are 13 weeks. She also tells him that Janelle is cozying up to Dan, because she thinks Janelle has figured out the same thing and is already playing an individual game. In the Diary Room, Willie says this “changes everything” and declares, “I am nobody’s pawn,” effectively cutting himself loose from any coaching.
Okay, let’s talk about what the hell Britney is thinking here. On the surface, this looks like a pretty insane thing to do, because now she’s lost control of the biggest player on her team, and she’s about to unleash chaos on the house. But if you think about it, maybe she’s already playing the individual game, too? I mean, out of the four coaches, Britney is by FAR the smallest threat. So even if Willie isn’t paying attention to her coaching anymore, he’s still ostensibly going to be knocking out the other three coaches’ largest allies (which is what she’d be coaching him to do, anyway), on the chance that the coaches will enter the game. So even if there is mass chaos, she and her team should still be relatively safe from Willie’s madness. She just increased the targets significantly on Janelle, Dan, and Boogie, as well as the people those three are closest two in the house. It could be quite brilliant.
