Jack says he spent so much time on it because Kennedy was like his hero and he made him interested in public service. As they drift off to sleep that night, Erika tells Jack that she found JFK, the movie (the one that takes the side of the conspiracy-mongers) “completely enthralling.” But it doesn't seem to be because she's a conspiracy-monger, rather that she was talking about the style of the film rather than the content. Jack says they got exactly two things right in that movie: The identity of the victim and the date it happened. Heh.
Jack tells us he originally wondered about the Warren Commission report – like so many others, he couldn’t believe just one man had done it. But when he became an agent and got to look at all the information on the investigation, he realized that they got it right, Oswald acted alone – as did Jack Ruby. That’s it.
That was actually a pretty informative segment. Thanks, CBS!
And now, it’s time for… The Twist!
Whoops. No it’s not. It’s time to lock up the desert room and say goodbye to Cuff and Link, the tortoises. Jack says he and Erika have taken care of them the entire time. They’ll miss them. We get to see some “memory” type footage. Aww. Alison calls them “filthy little beasts.” Yeah, they think the same thing about you.
Jack says he’s sad to lose the room because he and Erika have used the room as a sanctuary and they won’t have that room to discuss strategy. Jun says the room provided shelter and security for Jack and Erika (remember that Erika frequently went to that room instead of the HOH room last week!). It’ll be interesting to see how Jack and Erika handle the lack of privacy now, she says.
Now, some talk about the cameras! We see Erika notice that a camera is following her in the kitchen. In the Diary Room, she says she doesn’t mind ‘em – she doesn’t have anything to hide… except maybe her boobs. Heh.
Jee says it’s so weird – there is no privacy. Even when they’re sleeping, if they accidentally let out a fart, “they’ll know.” Robert says knowing that the cameras are always there adds to his nerves. Alison notes that having cameras in the bathroom makes her nauseous. We see an older shot when Justin pulled her out of the shower without a towel – lots of blurring, which, of course, is not there on the live web feeds. She says she knows that her naked body could be all over the Internet. Not “could,” Alison. Is.
Cut to a more recent shot of Jun boxing Jee while she is wearing just a towel, which, of course, falls down. Privately, she says she doesn’t mind people seeing her the way she is. She’s here to play a game that takes place under a microscope with big fancy cameras. It’s a way of life there and you get used to it.
OK, getting back to the game. Erika enters the HOH room to talk to Jee. She tells him that she respects whatever move he makes – she won’t tell him who to put up. He says that with the twist hanging over them, he doesn’t know exactly what will happen, but she and Jack are the opposition – and they are the biggest threat because they are the strongest alliance (something she should certainly understand). But that’s not set in stone yet.
Jack is next into the HOH room. Jack tells him that Jee was never a target – but that Justin and Rob were likely going to try to get themselves into the finals, but he wanted it to be Jee, Jun, Erika, and himself in the final four. This means Alison and Robert have to go next. Jee sees the big flaw in this just as I’m sure all viewers do – that would require Jee to turn on Robert immediately! Jee says he can’t believe Jack would even bring that up and, frankly, neither can I. It’s one thing to get the guy in a bad situation, locked in a cage, and convince him to leave in order to save himself. It’s quite another to try to convince him to completely turn on his one remaining partner! Not smart, Jack. Not smart.
Jack thinks Jee was receptive to putting up Alison. Maybe. But not Rob.
Jun goes in next and tells Jee how funny it is to see Erika and Jack pleading for their lives. She asks who he wants out next. He says he doesn’t care which of them ends up going, but he wants to break up their alliance. She tells him that to make the whole house happy, he should consider taking out Alison. Huh?! Well, apparently it’s reverse psychology – she wanted to throw him off so nobody suspects she is aligned with Alison. Well, yeah, trying to get her booted would definitely throw everybody off! But anyway, Jee says Robert wouldn’t go for that. Jun says he doesn’t have to tell Rob anything anymore – he has to look out for himself. And he says he has her back so she should have his too. And watch what you say!
Jee says privately that he can tell about people when he has the power. Can he trust them? (Shot of Robert.) Can he not trust them? (Shot of Jun.) Should they be the ones to be nominated (Shots of Jack and Erika.) or not (shot of Alison). Talk about foreshadowing.
Hey, Julie is here! What’s she doing here on a Saturday? (Well, okay, she’s not really there Saturday as it’s not live. But you know what I mean.) She says the Big Twist is that they will compete for Veto before they even know who has been nominated. Ooooooh. And the person who gets Veto will have to inflict a great deal of pain and suffering on their fellow housemates. Oh please. What is it, time on the rack? An iron maiden? Drawing and quartering? No. Wait a few minutes and you’ll see.
She says a special competition is beginning. They cannot talk to each other, make hand signals, or communicate in any way ‘til it’s over. They are sent to separate areas of the house and Julie tells them that it’s the Veto competition – but the winner’s identity will not be revealed until after the nominations.
Jee says he was shocked and worried. Jack says it turned their world upside down.
One at a time, Julie asks each person to go to the Diary Room. Alison is first. She has each one pick it up and hold it, feel the power. Oh please. That power could be yours… if the price is right! Whoops, wrong CBS show. Anyway, they all say the Veto is really important (like we didn’t know that).<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
