Episode Summary

EDIT
JASON SPARES THE ROD-DY Chiara's departure has hit the HouseGuests hard. Amy says she feels like a "horrid home wrecker," but wishes everyone would realize they were playing a game and "not Love Connection." Lisa is upset because Chiara asked her while leaving why Lisa didn't vote for her to stay. Roddy asks Jason to open his bag and see what Chiara left for him: a security blanket she's had since she was a young child. Roddy cries, but says he's "proud to be close enough" to Chiara for her to give him something so important to her. With the rest of the House in a stupor over the eviction, Marcellas tells Danielle and Lisa, commiserating in the Map Room, that Chiara "did dirt" to Lisa, to him, and would have done it to Danielle if she had the chance. Danielle feels confident in Jason as the new HoH, and says she had to try and act calm after he won, even though she was overjoyed. Taking in the perks of power, Jason says he's looking forward to sleeping in a real bed, since he's been using a sleeping bag on a cot since he arrived. Turning his thoughts to strategy, Jason feels safe with Danielle, but says nobody else is a hundred percent safe. Danielle informs Jason that prior to her eviction, Chiara told Lisa and Danielle that she thought Jason, for all his virtues, was a weak player. Danielle cautions Jason that if Chiara thought that, Roddy might think it too. DWINDLING NUMBERS Nothing so far brings the reality of departed HouseGuests home like their new, smaller dining room table. Jason calls everyone inside when he notices it, and they all stare at it. Lisa calls the table a "reality check," and Gerry says it's "eerie…it reminds me of lost comrades." With this unsettling new addition to the House, Danielle's ability to make everyone laugh is appreciated even more. Her dancing and particularly the different "characters" she does are a constant source of amusement. Amy, however, is finding that some of her antics aren't as well received. Gerry says her "selfishness hasn't changed" since she returned to the House, particularly regarding alcohol. Amy asks Gerry if he's going to finish his beer, and then offers to pay Marcellas for one of his. Marcellas sits her down in the HoH room and explains to her that this is the same type of behavior that led to her first eviction. He cautions her that since it already happened once, it could easily happen again. In addition to worrying about his friend Amy, Marcellas also worries that Gerry's feelings towards him might be a little bit stronger than just friends. "Gerry is in love with me. There, I've said it. It's out in the cosmos," Marcellas says in the Diary Room. Marcellas is unsettled by Gerry's asking him if he wants an "old, white sugar daddy" and by Gerry's habit of staring at him. The final straw for Marcellas comes when Gerry stands outside the shower, looking in at Marcellas as he washes up. In the Diary Room, Gerry says that he's very comfortable with his sexuality, and wonders whether Marcellas is simply uncomfortable having a straight friend paying attention to him.moreless
