Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 22
AIRED:
Keith calls Dave to see how he is doing. "Dude, it's bad," Dave bemoans, describing the mob mentality that's taken over the hotel. "I can't handle it." Keith says that he's done. He doesn't even care anymore. Everyone comes down for dinner. To Holly's dismay, Melanie wants to sit near Scott. Scott knew that having Melanie back might be awkward. From the next table, Holly overhears Scott tell Melanie that it was difficult when she left. Andon jokes that Charla has not come out of her room once. As she sits in bed, Dave asks her what she's thinking. Charla says that she will soon make her decision on whether to leave. He is sad that she feels defeated. He admits that he is just as terrified as she is, but he knows that those people are only jealous that they were beaten at the game. Dave thinks that Amy has lost perspective on things, and he now knows where she stands. Charla acknowledges that they never rubbed it in Amy's face that all of her friends were kicked out. Yet Amy is the first to lash out at Charla without a care for her feelings. Charla will now only worry about herself. Back at dinner, Amy is ecstatic that the Barbies haven't come out to face everyone. Beau doesn't understand this because people take heat there all the time. Zack quips that he hasn't even gotten started yet. Amanda sympathizes with Dave and Charla. Zack tells Amy that, after the first night, he has grown to care for her. (If you don't remember, that first night was when he told her he was disappointed that she picked him for a roommate. Zack thought he could do better, and even told Amy so.) Zack apologizes to Amy because he regrets what he once said. The next morning, Scott asks Holly if she would pose nude in Playboy for a "Women of Paradise Hotel" spread. She quickly answers yes, and says that she would do it for the money. In one of the guest rooms, Kristin and Andon agree that they don't want any of the four Barbies to win. They'd rather have Smokey beat them. At the pool, Scott tells Dave and Keith that this was not a good reunion at all. Dave is still confused as to what he did to make Andon hate him so much. Dave thinks that Andon is only bitter because he was kicked out. He calls the returning guests pathetic, not only at the hotel but in real life. Dave concedes that Charla is mentally beaten up, but that she is strong. They don't deserve the abuse they've been handed. "These people are idiots," Dave says. Although Dave is usually focused on strategy, he now has a whole new outlook. "Sanity outweighs strategy," he sighs. The guests are invited to a ceremony in the Grand Salon. Attendance is mandatory, which means that Charla is forced to get out of bed. She tells Dave that she feels like she's caught in the tornado of "The Wizard of Oz." Dave assures her that this is not the real world. He knows she has true strength. Host Amanda comes out to the Grand Salon pool and notices that a few people are missing. Suddenly, Toni gallops in, and is followed by Kavita, Matt and Alex. Yet Charla is still in her room. Dave arranges a place for her to sit when she arrives. Toni yells at Tara for supposedly being Charla's best friend and not having her back. Keith defends Tara. Dave gets Keith and Tara in line for Charla's entrance. They escort her to the table. She smiles weakly. Host Amanda comes back to tell the visitors that they will all be going home tomorrow, except that two of them will be checking back in. One couple will win the ultimate prize. She warns the former guests that they should watch what they say because the current guests will decide who gets to come back. Everyone cheers. Charla gets up to leave. Matt asks if he can hug her because he missed her. She tells him to meet her in the room. Kavita hugs Charla too, and she gets the same invitation. Before Charla can leave, Andon approaches Dave. He wants to explain himself. Yet Dave asks for some space. Charla decides that she will not leave today, telling Dave and Amanda that she needs to be there as one more vote in her friends' favor. The others sit down for lunch. Amy gives Keith the evil eye, and he wants to know what she is looking at. Zack jumps into the conversation by taunting Keith. He asks Keith when he will finally come out of the closet. (Like when you hid in Charla's bathroom, Zack?) Keith won't take the bait. "You're nothing to me," he grumbles. Amy and Toni applaud when Zack wittily calls Keith a shoe model that can't get work above his feet. "I'll see you in Arizona," Zack threatens. "With about fifty guys." Keith feigns fear. Tara notes that they were told that if anyone makes threats against anyone else, they will be kicked out. Zack doesn't care if he goes home, because he is sure that Keith threatened Amy as well. Keith heads back to his room, muttering to himself about Zack's ridiculous rant. Keith starts to pack his stuff. He doesn't understand why Zack has to demean people. He was raised to respect people, whether he likes them or not. Keith thinks that Zack is acting like a child who can only deal with things physically. Tara and Kavita come into Keith's room and ask why he is packing. "Because either Zack goes or I go," he says firmly. Toni comments that Tara hopped from the bed of Beau to Alex to Keith. "I think she's just on a jock in general," Alex muses. The other Originals laugh when Toni makes fun of Tara being a bitch who doesn't stick up for her friends. Scott shakes his head. Alex and Kristin make fun of Dave's ears and how they get red when he's fired up. Dave is able to laugh at himself until Alex starts to go too far. Dave gets annoyed when Alex touches him. Alex apologizes in a condescending way. Still hiding out in her room, Charla tells Kavita that she doesn't feel like being there. Kavita wants her and Dave to be the winners. It's all a mental game. She urges Charla to reconsider because she will regret it if she left. She is not weak and has accomplished so much by outsmarting the popular group. In the real world, it's the Originals who look stupid. The television audience likes Charla because she's real. Tara comes in to check on Charla. Kavita recounts for them how Zack pointed his finger at her and freaked out on her unnecessarily. She jokes about Zack calling himself a lawyer, a debater and a country boy. Tara and Charla laugh at how ridiculous he sounds. Matt comes to Charla's room. He liked that Charla wore his t-shirt to the disco night, and she was shown on television dancing in it. He says he replayed it in slow motion over and over. Charla smiles. She notices that Matt is in a good mood. He explains that it's because he's not trying to win the game anymore. When he first arrived in Paradise, everyone else ignored him. Yet Charla talked to him about real life things, and not about the game. She was nice to him and he missed her. Matt knows that they survived a lot to get there. "They're evil," Charla says. Toni tells Dave that she only came back to get him. She calls him a dirty (bleep) and says that he can go to hell. Dave notes that she is showing her true colors. "Am I being a bitch?" she asks. "That's my middle name. Kind of like ‘pinky swear.'" (A reference to Dave and Charla pinky swearing to protect each other.) Toni warns him not to be condescending to her. Dave is not swayed, and refuses to stoop to her level. She says she is disgusted by him. Dave calmly keeps a smile on his face until Toni walks away. Dave comes to Charla's room with an update of what's going on outside. Toni told him that America hates him. Charla says that Toni is a 30 year old. All the 30 year olds that Charla knows are responsible people who don't waste time telling off some 20 year old. Dave doesn't want to live in a country who admires Toni! Charla thinks the Originals don't deserve a second of her time. Dave knows she's feeling better because she partakes in some ice cream. Dave informs her that their group has a nickname: the Barbies. "They should call us the smart group," Charla laughs. Dave goes to debrief Holly, who has camped out in her room alone all day. Holly doesn't care what's going on in the hotel because she feels that no one cares about her. "I'm sick of it here. My opinion doesn't really matter," she laments. Dave assures Holly that she does matter. Meanwhile, Scott takes Melanie to see his room. They snuggle on the bed. He hopes she gets to come back, and she says that she would if she was voted back on. Yet she is aware that he is with Holly now. "Who knows what may happen in the future?" Melanie says. Alex thinks Tara is an idiot and a hypocrite. He cares nothing about her as a person. Amy says that Tara told her about how he voted in the King and Queen contest. Alex had chosen Tara instead of Amy. She's annoyed that she wasn't aware of this at the time. "I'm gonna vote for who I want to," he says glumly. Amy was behind him 100%. Alex says that he fell for Tara and believed her. Amy is pissed that Alex lied to her. Yet he argues that he never guaranteed her anything. "I'll just keep that in mind," she says sternly. Desiree is given an invitation for Pandora's Box. The hotel guests will get to ask questions of the visitors. Everyone gathers in the Harem Room for the biggest game they've ever had. Toni is first. She came back talking smack and pointing a lot of fingers. What makes her think she is better and not worse? "I am better, and that's all I need to say about that," Toni says bluntly. (Nice avoidance technique!) Amanda is asked why she should be trusted considering her lies in the past. She answers that she only lied to Beau about her feelings. Amanda hopes that he will give her a fair chance. Andon is next. Someone wants to know who he would vote off after he was the first guy to leave. Andon says he would vote off Keith, because Keith knows how to work things. He is more powerful than he knows. Kristin is asked what she thinks of the visitors' behavior. Not surprisingly, Kristin doesn't feel embarrassed because she feels that no one's done a thing wrong. They have not been outspoken. (And we all know that's not true.) Beau chimes in to state that he has respect for Dave for taking a lot of crap and standing his ground. Dave comments that everyone there feels like they need to scream their hostility out loud. He is sick of people not using common courtesy. "Common courtesy in this setting is only gonna get you stepped on and kicked off," Andon says. Dave thinks that the people who are still there have been the most courteous. Beau takes offense at that statement. Dave makes an exception for Beau. (Which seems to satisfy him.) Zack says that Dave and Keith are taking the heat for Tara and Charla. Zack tells Tara that she has no dignity, pride or class. "What I saw was trash," he says. Charla says she is not pretending to be innocent. She is just playing the game. "I'm here for a reason," she adds. Desiree speaks up for the first time to say that she lost respect for Charla the first week she arrived. Charla was constantly in her ear, passing judgment. Charla disagrees, but Dave cautions Charla not to respond. The questions start up again, and Matt is asked who he would trust if he was invited back to the hotel. "I don't trust anyone," Matt answers solemnly. Host Amanda comes in to end the Pandora's Box. She announces that the current guests will choose two former guests to check back in. The men will select one female, while the women will pick a guy. However, there will be one exception. Since Zack made some comments to Keith earlier in the day, he will not be eligible. The rules of the Hotel state that threats of physical violence are unacceptable. Amy is mad. Everyone else is stunned. This is the last night in Paradise for Zack and most of the other visitors. Keith has one final word in his confessional about Zack: "I kicked him off again." -paradiseonfox.commoreless
