Sorry, folks, but I'm not going to do a recap tonight. This will be pretty straightforward episode, and everything that happened has already been covered her (plus on last night's BBGossip show).
If you still want to know what happened, here's my prediction on tonight's show structure:
8:00 - 8:03 pm EST. Announcer tells the entire story of the season, just in case you forgot.
8:03 - 8:10 pm EST. We see everybody on the endurance contraption, but it quickly shifts to the moment Julie announced that "America" (cough cough) had voted to allow them to enter the game. There will be flashbacks of them hitting (or not, in Boogie's case) the red button, accompanied by diary room cheers and jeers.
8:10 - 8:30 pm EST. The actual endurance comp. Again, pretty straightforward, with the exception of typical diary room comments (Joe and Dan screaming, Frank and Shane angry at themselves for dropping). Boogie discovering the plot to evict Frank will also be included, using footage involving conversations with Dan, Joe, and finally Boogie spilling it all to Frank. The culmination will be the negoitations between Ian, Britney, and Danielle, and finally, the "From Here To Eternity" kiss between Danielle and Shane (with Dan's suggestion that Shane do this edited out).
8:30 - 8:50 pm EST. Danielle's HOH room reveal (gag me) and her desire to nominate Janelle start the segment, before moving on to show the coaches working on Danielle. Interspersed in this footage will also be Boogie's growing anger over the Frank situation. The final commercial break will occur after we see Dan "coaching" Danielle on who should be nominated.
8:50 - 9:00 pm EST. Danielle reads the HOH nom script (not very well), with the proper dialogue from anybody who the editors have deemed the viewers may believe will be nominated. The show will then end with the nominations of Wil and Frank, with proper angry reactions from the nominees and Boogie, along with smug smiles from Danielle.
While tonight's episode is destined to be a snoozer, the real actions could be on Wednesday's show. As stated by Ash's report last night, there really is a movement to put up Janelle. Danielle is seemingly working with Shane AND Frank right now. Obviously, this plot is one conversation away from not happening, but it could enliven Wednesdya's episode! Turn those feeds on and view for yourself!
Although I didn't write a recap, I did watch tonight's episode and I'm saddened that I really had this episode predicted TO THE VERY MINUTE!!! That's is ridiculous! The only thing missing from my script was the Ian/Ashley fake-showmance segment, and guess what? That was footage from two weeks ago!
One could also argue that I understated the amount of Boogie anguish they'd show, and the round robin denials from those involved in the Frank situation. This was silly on CBS' part, as they didn't resolve how Danielle's focus went from Janelle to Frank/Boogie.
I was tweeting during the show, though, so here's what I had to say as I was watching. Be warned - I'm even more more full of anger and sarcasm when watching live!
8:01 Why show all of this stuff from the week that never happened???
8:01 "Shocking announcement" by Julie? Bwahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahaha
8:02 Oh, Ian, you're silly - "the biggest twist in Big Brother history". No, it's not
8:05 Dan, quit yelling in the diary room. You're almost as bad as Joe!
8:09 Wait, when did Janelle adopt the Ashley method of speaking?
8:13 One good thing about this comp - at least Frank's body saw some water
8:21 Ugh, Shane. "She's definitely impressing me." Sure, she is.
8:22 Ugh, the phony Dan victory speech just for the cameras. Fuck him.
8:23 Dear Dan, you're no Knute Rockne. Or Vince Lombardi. You're not even Rex Ryan. Shut the fuck up.
8:25 Notice how they don't show Britney making demands from ian?
8:30 Funny how after that supposed kiss Shane has barely been in PsychoGurlll's HOH room
8:37 Dear Danielle, congrats on finally accomplishing something in your life. Don't ever contact us again. Signed, Mom.
8:43 Ok, finally something not on my predicted recap - Ian attempting to flirt with Ashley.
8:46 It's official - I'm more bothered by Dan's diary room yelling than Joe's
8:52 It is really sad that with the exception of a misplaced, old Ian segment I had this episode pre-written to the very minute!
