Episode Summary

EDIT
Before returning to Part One of the ultimate HoH Competition, Jason explains that he evicted Amy because she was a better player than Lisa when it came to the Competitions. His strong ally Danielle agrees with Jason's actions, saying that she has loyalty to both Lisa and Jason, so she's fine with them both still being in the game. For her part, Lisa says she's "Not surprised, but relieved" that Jason kept her in the game. Outside, the HouseGuests are still being deluged by rain from BIG BROTHER's "deal" with Mother Nature. All three hands shiver as they desperately clutch their keys. Danielle says that when the rain first started, it was like being in the path of a storm. Jason notices that Lisa keeps her "game face" on the entire time, smiling broadly as if she wasn't bothered at all. Lisa says she got inspiration from her swimwear, the top of which belonged to her mother and the bottom that came from Eric. As another downpour starts up, Jason loses his focus and lets go of his key to put his rain hat on. As he gets out of the pool, he says he was "kicking himself," and that he felt he "could've gone the distance." With Jason out, the pressure of the alliance falls squarely on Danielle. She says she has to beat Lisa, and that if she takes her hand off the key, she's taking her hand off $500,000. As more rain comes down, Danielle starts to howl into the wind, trash-talking the storm to keep her spirits up. Lisa says that she was having a constant internal monologue, asking herself when she should approach Danielle regarding a deal. When the next monsoon starts up, Lisa asks Danielle if she has a secret deal with Jason. Danielle doesn't answer yes or no, but tells Lisa to keep holding onto her key because she doesn't know what Jason will do. Lisa reads between the lines and realizes Danielle is telling her that she does have a deal with Jason. Finally, during the next storm, a shivering Danielle gives her word to Lisa that they'll both go to the final two together if Danielle wins HoH, and Lisa reciprocates. After nearly four and a half hours, Danielle lets go of her key, giving Lisa round one and a bye to the HoH finals. Inside, while Lisa is showering to warm up, Danielle tells Jason about the deal she made in the pool, but adds that she was lying to Lisa, and still intends to keep him. Danielle says in the Diary Room that the money is the most important thing to her in the game, and that it "means more than either of them." Danielle races to the first station, the Memory Wall, where she puts the HouseGuests in order of their eviction. At the second station, she has to wash and dry a towel, filling the wash bucket to a certain level with water. She uses the outdoor shower, fills the bucket, dunks the towel, puts it through the ringer and throws it into the dryer before moving on to station three. At this station, Danielle faces her nemesis: the peanut butter and jelly sandwich. She makes a sandwich for herself and wolfs it down, then moves over to station four to arrange the HouseGuests in the order that they held the Power of Veto. The whistle sounds at the seven-minute mark, before she finishes the station, giving Danielle three points. After the Competition, Danielle says that she didn't throw the event, but that she'd "feel better if Jason won." Jason knows that Danielle has another deal with Lisa to go to the final two, and feels like he'll be evicted if he loses this competition. He struggles a little at the first station, going slower than he'd like, but makes up lost time at station two. At station three, he swallows his PB and J sandwich "pretty much without chewing it," which has given him a bit of a sore throat afterwards. Jason gets through station three and moves on station four, where he correctly arranges the pov order, then goes to the backyard for station five. He dives into the pool without removing his shirt or hat, and admits he gets distracted when he sees his hat floating next to him. Before he can start to arrange the HouseGuest photos he finds on the pool bottom in any sort of order, the whistle blows and his turn is over. From the studio, Julie Chen talks to Jason, Lisa and Danielle. Before telling them their scores, Julie asks Jason about his Round One mishap. Jason says he was distracted by something he saw in the sky and lost his focus. When the rain started to fall again, he explains, he simply let go of the key to grab his hat. Julie turns to Danielle and Lisa, who made it more than four times as long as Jason, and asks them how difficult it was to endure the cold and rain of the storm. Both are speechless when Julie asks them, but Danielle manages to tell Julie her shivering was real and that she was actually that cold. Lisa says it's actually worse now, because her muscles have gotten sore from being still so long. With Lisa guaranteed a spot in Round Three, Julie reveals the results of Round Two to Danielle and Jason. Jason successfully completed four of the stations to Danielle's three, putting him into Round Three and a chance to win the ultimate HoH title. With the final battle lines drawn, Julie asks Jason and Lisa if they've made up their minds regarding whom they'll evict if they win. Lisa and Jason both tell Julie that they have their minds made up.moreless
