Episode Summary

EDIT
HE SAID, SHE SAID: JOSH & CHIARA SQUARE OFF After his nomination at Chiara's hands and her harsh words for him, Josh begins to pack, ready to make a voluntary exit from the game. He regards Chiara as "treacherous" and "manipulative," and feels that she's stabbed him in the back twice now. Lisa is glad that her name was thrown into things, because it gives her an excuse to confront Josh about what he said to Chiara. Josh tells Lisa that Chiara had already made up her mind to go after Lisa before she spoke to Josh, and that Roddy was the one who convinced her. Later, Josh confronts Roddy for knowing in advance they would both be nominated and then securing the necessary votes to stay in the House. Roddy reiterates his loyalty to Josh, assuring him that he is nominated because he told Chiara he wouldn't vote to evict him. Lisa overhears their argument and joins it, shooting down Josh's theories. As she leaves, Chiara follows her. Lisa, also upset with Chiara, says later that she wanted to shut the door to her bedroom in Chiara's face rather than talk to her. Lisa realizes she needs Chiara on her side, though, and they talk, with Lisa pointedly telling Chiara that she "can't deal with liars." Josh returns to packing his bags and is approached by Danielle. He tells her that he knows the votes against him are secured and that he's leaving the House. In the Diary Room, Danielle says that she's considering breaking her word to Chiara and voting Roddy out. Chiara attempts to smooth things over by bringing Josh into the HoH room. Josh tells her that she's betrayed him twice: first by voting to evict him in Week Two and second by nominating him after promising she wouldn't. Chiara explains that she nominated him because Roddy had her convinced Josh was going to nominate him if he ever became HoH. Josh gets upset at this news and starts to cry, saying, "If the two of you feel I'm untrustworthy, then I'm glad I'm gone." A COUNTER PROPOSAL Roddy approaches Josh, who is still packing his bags to leave. Josh tells him that he doesn't want to stay in the House as a "lame duck" waiting to be kicked out. Roddy tells him that if he's certain he'll be going, then just relax and enjoy his time with everybody. More to the point, Roddy tells Josh he'll regret it for the rest of his life if he walks out and is remembered as "a guy who got so angry that [he] walked out." Josh tells Roddy that he's "dying" to get out of the House, but concedes and starts to unpack. With Marcellas, Danielle broaches the idea of targeting Roddy instead of Josh. Marcellas is tentative, but says the idea is "tempting." Soon, they are exploring scenarios and trying to figure out their third vote. Danielle says Jason has already been approached and said he couldn't. As they're talking, Gerry approaches. Gerry admits he's nervous about the possibility of Eric returning and seeking revenge for Gerry evicting him. Danielle and Marcellas float their idea to Gerry, who promises to consider it. THE POWER OF VETO Roddy comes to Josh, who has been alone in his bedroom. Josh swears to use the Veto Power to take Roddy off the block if he wins it. The next Veto Competition is called "Clockwork." The HouseGuests are shown snapshots on the plasma screen and have to place them in chronological order, from earliest to latest. For each correct answer, one point is awarded. The HouseGuest with the most points wins the Veto power. In the First Round, the pictures are of the facials the girls gave Jason, Eric and Roddy, Danielle winning the Veto Power, Gerry leaving the slime tank, Marcellas eating a chicken liver and Josh breaking an egg over Amy's head. (In chronological order, the correct order is: slime tank, eggs, Veto, facials and chicken livers.) Chiara, Danielle and Gerry are eliminated, leaving Jason, Josh, Marcellas, Roddy and Lisa still alive. For Round Two, the photos are the luau, human bowling, a congratulatory toast, peanut butter bikinis and Lori's eviction. (In chronological order, they are: Toast, luau, bikinis, Lori's eviction and human bowling.) Lisa gets all five correct and wins the Power of Veto.moreless
