Helen focuses Elissa back to getting Kaitlin up with Helen and Elissa; the MVP picks Jeremy as replacement if Kaitlin wins POV, and then keep Jeremy from winning HOH next week. If Helen and Elissa win POV, they take themselves off, and Jeremy goes up next to Kaitlin. If it looks like Kaitlin will win, throw it to her to come down, Jeremy goes up.

Amanda asks again who they want put up, says Elissa comes around her all the time she can get who they want but not to believe Elissa. Jeremy pushes for Nick. Jeremy says again how Elissa came up to him with his name. Amanda trying to deflect again, McCrae 'backdoored' Elissa so "why" would they be friends? Kaitlin wants Elissa to put up Nick. Aaryn wants to get rid of the people who "don't deserve to be here". Kaitlin says McCray should be up here right now. Aaryn loves McCrae. Aaryn says Elissa asked her three times to have an alliance with her. "Three times!" Aaryn has stomach pains from stress. Kaitlin observes the MVP has more control than the HOH she feels Jeremy will get backdoored.

Howard says it doesn't matter who is. Candice wants the mastermind on the block too. Candice says someone winning MVP each week is more threatening to her than a showmance. Jeremy is campaigning hard, says he is convinced the only reason Elissa wins MVP is because of 'her sister's fans" and claims she's pitting everyone against each other, and her son has an iPad. Candice says nobody has bullied her but she still wants to ferret out the mastermind, she claims no alliances with anyone. Jeremy thinks Candice and Spencerr deserve to be there, and Kaitlin/Howard/Judd. Candice doesn't like people who stir things up and is wary of overly quiet people. Talk about it being like high school in the House. Jeremy has nothing; Candice is a poor speech therapist.

Candice feels MVP will end mid-season. Candice shoots down Jeremy's claim Elissa is in alliance with everyone, she thinks alliances are no more than 4 people, she thinks larger alliances are stupid.

Aaryn asks if McC/Amanda are playing them. Jeremy suggests putting Amanda/ Elissa up. Aaryn wants to tell McC about Elissa telling Jeremy he was going up - it will cause chaos. Jeremy doesn't want that. Aaryn says that Elissa is telling everyone that the reason J/A won was because Jeremy was tall and Aaryn was on Adderall. Jeremy feels Amanda may be a bigger threat than Elissa. Jeremy wants to go up so nobody can win but him. Aaryn says Candice and Elissa up would cause the least drama in the house; Jeremy pushes for Amanda. Jessie to HOH, tells she just walked in on Howard and Candice; she thinks for sure that Candice/Elissa/Howard are aligned. Jeremy now wants Helen and Elissa as noms.

Aaryn tells Jessie not to repeat anything. McC to HOH. Jeremy gives his 'target other HGs' speech again to McC. Starts his campaign against Elissa, she has a Lotus, she's got a mansion, etc. Andy enters HOH. Talk continues on who deserves to be there.

Andy joins convo - he's never been out of Illinois in his life. Andy back inside. Judd/Elissa talk of Savannah and Atlanta, and Paula Dean restaurants. Elissa imitates Paula, "just add three cups of Crisco, just throw the bucket in there'. Elissa liked Judd's answer to Chenbot's question of how bad was the Have Not room. Judd is scared of airports. Elissa wants to do a July 4th parade and wishes they had fun houseguests. Judd: "instead of the hateful ones?" Elissa says Amanda's fun, but 'they' won't listen to anything Elissa suggests. Judd's hash tag is J u Double D. Elissa's hash tag is BB15winner. Judd asks if Elissa has thought about MVP yet. Elissa asks, do you think I'll get it?

Kaitlin comes in and tells everyone she peed blood. Medics told her not to take any Advil for 48 hours - the medic said Kaitlin took too many Advil yesterday. Jeremy wants to paint his face like McC's. Andy, Aaryn, Kaitlin all claim they are too kind-hearted and trusting and show their emotions easily. Talk turns to Elissa being given special powers, Aaryn calls her robotic. Aaryn doesn't think Elissa has production help or Elissa would be nicer to Aaryn. Aaryn says she's not putting up a pawn up; she's putting up who she doesn't like. Kaitlin says Elissa talks bad about everyone; McC says she needs to get off her 'high horse'. Jeremy tells GM Elissa might put GM up. Aaryn hoping POV isn't physical since GM can't use her hand. Jeremy thinks Elissa knows all the games coming up. Aaryn doesn't understand why America would vote for Elissa for MVP. Aaryn mentions 'death threats' again, calls BB Alumni, Matt and Shelley, sketchy. Aaryn back to complaining how hot it is in her room, says production hates her. Kaitlin doesn't care if Aaryn snuggles with Jeremy. Aaryn would be bothered if Kaitlin snuggled David.

Aaryn brings up the Adderall comment. Helen will talk to Elissa about it. Aaryn felt doubt about Helen because Helen stood by Elissa after the 'bathroom incident'. Aaryn calls Elissa a 'beast' that's turning everyone against each other. Helen says she tries to distance herself from Elissa, but Elissa comes to her. Helen says Candice says the same thing. Helen wants to trust Elissa but hasn't figured her out. Says WineGate brought them together. Aaryn admits to stirring the pot and her part in that but that she thought she heard under the breath comments and got stares from people. Helen saying she's hardly ever talked to Aaryn. Aaryn saying Candice/Andy/ Helen are the only ones who've come up to her and admitted to voting against David. Helen says if we play revenge we'll kill each other. Helen tells Aaryn to talk to her if Helen wins HOH next. Aaryn says Jer/Ka are a package, they won't take her, and she has to start over now that David's gone. Helen offers to work with Aaryn as a strategy. Aaryn claims to Helen she never mentioned Elissa's name to McC last week. Helen offers to help Aaryn rebuild her trust in Elissa and if they keep her, Elissa could help Aaryn but Helen doesn't want anyone thinking Helen and Elissa are friends. Helen says she hasn't bonded with Jeremy the way she has with Spencerr. Helen and Aaryn can help each other in the future, putting up people on each other's side. Helen agrees to say to others that she didn't want to discuss anything with Aaryn. Aaryn wants Elissa to know she never would have gone after her, except for Elissa's comments.

Jeremy comes back up to HOH, tells GM/Aaryn that Jessie repeated everything they schemed. GM gets in a huff. Aaryn is going to put Jessie up now. Jeremy then says Helen is a bigger threat.

Kaitlin says Elissa 'mean mugged her' and she went to the bathroom to confront Elissa. Elissa says "I don't care who you guys are f...king, I don't even know that girls name. I don't have anything against you, Kaitlin; I think you're really sweet." Elissa tells Kaitlin she knows she's going up on the block. Kaitlin tells Aaryn she confronts Elissa, "I heard you called me a whore". Kaitlin says that Elissa denied saying that, she 'didn't mean it like that' and she already apologized to Jeremy.

Candice says it just kills her that there have been no 'boy fights' and just 'girl fights'. Candice could throw up, everybody is beautiful in their own way, why do they make up stories like you sat on my hat or rubbed lotion on my man, and the men don't even care about them.

In the hammock, Amanda and Aaryn are talking. Amanda saying Elissa "turns into Rachel". Amanda saying she distanced herself from Aaryn because Aaryn seemed b...tchy last week. Aaryn asks if it was anything besides what she did to Elissa. Everyone was being nice to Elissa and it made Aaryn mad. But now she knows why. (Ed. note: that they were being fake nice to Elissa because she was MVP) They both notice Elissa and Jessie are talking at the hot tub. Aaryn tells Amanda that she/Kat/Jessie were in an alliance at the beginning. Says Elissa asked her to be in an alliance 'three times'. Amanda says me too. Aaryn says she's really not a b...ch but she was being b..chy last week. Amanda convinced that they can manipulate whoever has MVP after Elissa goes. Amanda wondering about Nick, why does he go to the DR "14 times a day"? Aaryn is worried Nick's 'an actor'. Aaryn wonders why Elissa would want to put up Aaryn. Amanda says she wanted Aaryn up multiple times. Amanda saying what made her not trust Elissa was she wanted to put up, Aaryn interrupts: "Guys?" Amanda says, yes, but Elissa told McC out of the blue she wanted Aaryn up. Aaryn says that at the point she knew her and Elissa would never mend and that 'she was crazy' and 'did the most horrible things' to her, but it wasn't until last night, after so many comments, Aaryn finally couldn't deal with it anymore - Aaryn was sick of being pushed. Aaryn claims Elissa was trying to make her look stupid on purpose. She tells a story about when David was outside and down on his knee, Elissa asked if David was proposing; Aaryn didn't like that. Amanda asks if Jessie told her that, Aaryn says no, she said it to my face. Amanda claims Elissa is a wild card and is 'so f...kn lucky' she's here this week. Aaryn: "she walks like a robot." Aaryn: "maybe Nick's her husband". Amanda: 'that would be ridiculous, that would be insane'. Amanda says Elissa doesn't talk about her marriage. Aaryn: 'maybe her little boy is from a different dad'. Spencer/Jeremy in SR - Spencer is MC 100%, tells Jeremy that Elissa wants Jeremy up and that scares him. Spencer tells Jeremy that Elissa has been saying she wants an all-girl house. Spencer saying Amanda is trying to buddy up with Elissa and he wants Elissa gone. Jeremy calls Elissa a c....t. Jeremy tells Spencer to suggest GM to Elissa as a MVP nom instead since GM is injured. Jeremy tells Spencerr Aaryn trusts him. Spencer/Howard/Candice/McC/Jessie on BY couch discussing racial issues and politics. Andy/Elissa in bathroom. Andy being reassuring, telling Elissa they have the numbers to keep her but Elissa can't tell anyone about their convo.
12-1am Aaryn/Kaitlin/Jeremy/Judd/GM in HOH, Jessie comes up. "I just want to clear the air". She doesn't understand why they're mad at her. They accuse her of taking info outside the HOH room. Jessie says she hasn't said anything. Aaryn says she doesn't like things thrown back in her face. Jessie feels the game isn't fun anymore. Jessie calls Jeremy out for talking over people, calls him rude. Aaryn says she doesn't like Jesse's attitude and she is offended. GM asks if someone said Jessie was in a showmance with Judd. Jessie says she saw Elissa looking at her when she was talking to Judd and she thought Elissa was going to tell people she was in a showmance, and she snapped. Jessie says she already apologized to Elissa and she thinks Elissa is a nice. Jeremy accuses Jessie of telling their plan. Jessie denies. Jeremy questions, why would everyone know the exact plan? Jessie denies again. Andy enters/exits. Howard enters/exits. Jessie can't understand why they don't trust her. Aaryn attacks Jessie for saying Elissa's a nice person. Jessie says personal and game are two different things. Jeremy suggests Elissa is offering money to people (Ed. note: not true). Aaryn says, you were in the hot tub kissing her a..s. "It's disgusting." Jesse says she has her own opinion. Aaryn says it's not ok to say Elissa is a nice person. GM offers it's not that Elissa is a bad person, it's because her getting MVP is unfair. Jessie says she's tried to be a mean girl but it's not her nature, and she's willing to give Elissa a second chance. That isn't acceptable to Aaryn, who becomes agitated, saying she can't trust Jessie if Jessie says that. Jessie admits her delivery may suck but she just wanted to clear the air. Aaryn attacks her delivery. Aaryn asks, why do you think Judd is up here after he voted out David? They tell Jessie to watch what she says, it can be twisted. Jessie leaves, HOH clears out. Candice to HOH. Aaryn tells Candice that Jessie came up and attacked them. Aaryn says she had a hard time not saying anything. Candice complains that the girls are fighting and the boys always make it to the end and that upsets her. Candice says 'the girls just terrorize each other'. Jeremy returns. Aaryn teases Kaitlin, 'babe! Is that the first 'babe?’ as Jeremy hands Kaitlin a glass of water. Jeremy says no no, Kaitlin says nothing. Discussion turns to David, Aaryn would so leave the house to go surfing with David. Talk of him coming back in Pandora's Box. Andy/Jessie/Judd on BY couch. Andy asks Jessie if she's ok, Jessie says she's had a rough day. Helen joins the BY couch crew. Her glasses Rx is negative 12 and 13 in her glasses; Andy is negative 5. Andy jokes BB will take away Helen's glasses and she won't recognize anyone. Helen/ Elissa in HN room; Elissa wondering if it's worth it to stay, she wanted to play strategically. BB loves the Rachel connection and she wasn't even going to bring it up. The girls have been so personally mean to her. Elissa doesn't understand. Helen says the fans love the Rachel thing but the House doesn't. Helen says David's 'friends' aren't even sad. Elissa says GM took personal offense to Elissa asking her where she went to school when they were just casually talking, she didn't mean it as an insult. There are a lot of personal attacks. Helen isn't used to people who haven't been college-educated. Helen said not going to college wasn't an option in her family. Elissa's family is the same. Jessie/Andy talk; she's asking him for advice on how to communicate with people. Amanda/McC playing pool and flirting. Kaitlin/Jeremy/Aaryn in HOH. Kaitlin/Jeremy flirting. Aaryn: "America, help me" "I hate everyone" Jeremy, about going to down to shoot pool says, "Let’s go own this house like we already know we do" Aaryn takes Tinkerbelle wings off Jeremy, puts them on herself then takes them off. Asks J/K what they think of what Jess said. Jeremy won't trust her. Kaitlin brings up Candice. Jeremy says he lied to her. Candice told him that Elissa came up to Candice and was thinking of putting up (Jeremy) or GM. Kaitlin asks Jeremy if he believes that, why would she tell on her own alliance? Kaitlin said Andy told her Elissa was complaining how loud GM was. Aaryn agrees GM is loud. Aaryn: "I think our downfall is we talk too much.” Kaitlin is worried MVP would put Kaitlin up. Aaryn recounts (again) their threat to the HG if they don't vote Elissa out. Aaryn thinks they can get Spencer/Andy/ Amanda/ McC/ Judd.
1-2am Jeremy in Lounge continuing his campaign against Elissa. He thinks he has ringworm instead of a bee sting. GM and Nick alone in Lounge. GM tells Nick she thinks she's going up by MVP. GM wants a HOH before she goes home. Nick wants to be cold. GM says Jessie is in their room but it is cold outside. Amanda/McC/Spencer/Andy on BY couch. Howard joins them. Amanda makes an off-color remark about Howard’s bedroom abilities. Howard cares if women gets something out of it. Spencer doesn't care. All laugh. Kaitlin /Jeremy/McC/Amanda playing pool. Losing team Aaryn and Judd join Candice/ Nick/Aaryn on BY couch. Talk turns to meaning of 'malt' liquor. Jeremy thinks it's a mixed beer. Amanda says it's a beer. Aaryn says a malt beverage. Andy relays a story about how he got an unfair grade changed by being persistent with his instructor. Aaryn thinks she makes better decisions when she's drunk. Spencer wants to know if Aaryn is a family name. Aaryn says her name was decided with a coin toss. Aaryn says her hash tag is 'Death Threats'. Aaryn accuses Elissa of telling Aaryn that she will get death threats (says in haggy voice). Alumni Shelley's name is mentioned. Aaryn brags it's 'sick and sad' how good she is at shooting. She has an 'all black' gun. Spencer jumps at the chance to talk guns. Aaryn tells Spencer to put bullets in his ears if he doesn't have ear protection. Spencer asks if Aaryn’s gun is hammer or hammerless and then explains He sounds like he knows his guns. Aaryn's dad has a ranch and they have 7 cabins and rent them out to deer hunters (for $2,000 a year, or $2,000 a gun?). They use deer feeders. They lost their livestock to anthrax. She blames seismographers and contaminated equipment. They have 18,000 acres with oil and natural gas but nobody will buy their oil/gas? Spencer explains about fracking. Aaryn says they won't sell the mineral rights they'll be inherited until someone wants their gas/oil. Andy/Kaitlin/GM on hammock. Kaitlin is still paranoid. Andy telling Kaitlin to chill, let other people freak out. They decide to join the couch crew.
2-3am HN gals asleep; Jessie asleep. Rest of crew outside. Andy to DR. Aaryn is meowing. Kaitlin/Aaryn to SR. Kaitlin thinks H/E will work together with MVP and the person put up will go home. Kaitlin doesn't think it's a smart idea to put them up together. Asks Aaryn if that makes sense, is she acting crazy? Aaryn says if Kaitlin has another option tell her. Aaryn asks what Jeremy thinks, Kaitlin says Jeremy won't talk to her about it. Aaryn wonders why Elissa put David up. Kaitlin thinks Nick made a deal with Elissa. Aaryn wants to know what Kaitlin is most comfortable with -she can't control the MVP - what is Kaitlin most comfortable with. Kaitlin won't name names. Kaitlin feels that everyone even Andy is lying to their face. Aaryn says he's changed "there's something behind his eyes now'. (She trusts him). Aaryn doesn't think Elissa will nom someone that can potentially beat her. Aaryn accuses Elissa of 'terrorizing the house' and 'she promised to keep (people) safe'. Kaitlin says if Jeremy goes up on the block he's going home. Aaryn doesn't think so. Aaryn calls Elissa 'batsh..t crazy.' Kaitlin worries what deals Elissa will make; Aaryn says Aaryn will make crazier ones. Kaitlin thinks Elissa is listening at the door (Ed. note: she's asleep). Kaitlin thinks Elissa has heard all her conversations tonight. Aaryn tells Kaitlin they can't focus on Kaitlin going. In BY Amanda has won her pool game and does a happy dance. Andy comes out of the DR "they actually wanted to talk to me!" Andy/Kaitlin exit to BY, followed by Aaryn. BY convo is about dating. Andy offers that a straight guy in a gay bar gets any girl he wants. Aaryn says she's never met a guy in a bar. Spencer met his wife after she moved onto their street and she needed him to help start her lawnmower. Amanda and McCrae are discussing strategy. Amanda asks McC how they will play both sides when it comes to voting. McC says to 'vote with (HOH)'. Amanda asking if they go after floaters then. McC saying 'they said' David threw the veto comp. They laugh and agree that was stupid. McC thinks it was a 'really good day' if (HOH) wasn't lying to them. Nick/Aaryn/Kaitlin/Jeremy/Spencer/Andy/Judd/Howard on BY couch. Aaryn has red extensions "like Rachel". Aaryn mentions Matt from Rachel/Brendon BB wedding. "Isn’t that disgusting? Andy thought it was pretty funny. GM didn't like how Matt lied. Spencer tries to tell a history story to GM about karma. Aaryn asks if Spencerr is 'trying to act like Nick right now." When Spencer tries to continue, Aaryn interrupts the convo again. Kaitlin tells Aaryn the things you say make me uncomfortable. Aaryn starts chanting a cheer. Aaryn yells "tequila" in her Rachel voice. Andy thinks America hates Helen. They make fun of her name. Aaryn imitates an Asian voice. GM asks if she can get her nails done first. Aaryn meows. Candice joins back yard crew. Aaryn makes fun of Rachel. GM asked Elissa if her lips were real. Aaryn says she heard Elissa talking about Botox. Andy wants to know who figured out Elissa was Rachel's sister. Candice says she told Jeremy, she had seen her before. GM was going to tell Elissa she looked like a prettier version of Rachel.
3-4AM. BY couch crew still going strong. Jeremy/Howard and Spencer talk about spiders. GM talking about doing people's makeup. Aaryn asks Andy to go get her red extensions (he doesn't). GM brings up the 4th of July dinner and fireworks. Everyone agrees they had a good time. Nick outside. Kaitlin went to Catholic School thru 12th grade. Andy starts his laundry. Judd saw a black widow spider under the bed. Jeremy wants to turn into Spiderman since he was bit by a spider. Judd tells a story about a bird pooping on him. Aaryn must be inside. Talk about their school mascots. GM hated high school. Amanda/McC still whispering, talk of moving, families, etc. Kaitlin headed to bed. Aaryn already in bed, lights off, watching HOH monitor, says she's being 'sneaky'. Kaitlin climbs in bed, says she has no pants on. Aaryn says the living room looks like a thrift shop. Kaitlin says everything is just off; the wallpaper is hideous. Kaitlin notices you can't see David's picture (on screenshot of downstairs). Aaryn complains the candy is gone; all they do is eat and sit around. BY boys talking boy stuff. Nick doesn't feel good after eating the turkey burger.

McC/Amanda still talking life stories. Howard/Nick brushing teeth. Candice waiting on Spencerr to finish in the bathroom. Spencer says not to rush him, kidding around. Spencerr: I was cleaning up after Judd, who brushes his teeth for 20 minutes. Nick: 22 ! Nick says his turkey burger isn't sitting well. Howard and Judd take a seat. Spencer exits. Howard asks Judd, after tonight are you sleeping with Jessie? They laugh. Andy/Judd brushing teeth now. Nick flossing. Judd and Candice aren't sleepy. Judd says 'Quaaludes'. Andy and Candice wander around while brushing. Howard washing his hands. Nick says he's washed his hands more in the BB house then he ever has. Candice doesn't like people in the kitchen when she's cooking. Andy wants Judd to keep the water running in the sink so he can pee - Andy gets 'pee shy'. Judd turns off the water, remembers, and turns it back on. Amanda/McC to bathroom, McC asks if they are going to smoke. Amanda is going to smoke one of Jessie's cigarettes. Andy goes out with McC/Amanda. Asks them what they think Aaryn is going to do tomorrow. Amanda says she honestly doesn't know. Andy says every time is something different. They were even talking not putting up Elissa. McC says that scares him. Andy says he's talked to everyone today and everyone thinks it would be so stupid not to do what they've all planned out. Amanda says Jessie is getting on their nerves and they're worried about Nick. Andy thinks Nick is freaked out. Amanda says he's acting guilty even though he's not guilty, same as Jessie. McCrae and Andy don't understand why the HOH haven't figured out they don't have the numbers. Amanda says Aaryn's going to put up Elissa. Amanda says she told Aaryn she would be afraid to backdoor her. Aaryn told Amanda that if Elissa came off Elissa would come after Aaryn and Aaryn was all alone. Andy feels Candice and Elissa up is the best case scenario. Andy says nobody should be scared of going up because we have the numbers. Amanda says easier said than done, though. Amanda thinks they may put Helen up. Andy says we're fine. Judd comes outside, singing shady folks shady folks here's three shady folks. Joins group. Judd says that all Elissa did was make a joke. Amanda says because Jessie was dancing like a sl...t? Judd says Jessie likes Elissa. Andy says Elissa said today she's here for her fans and her sister and she doesn't plan on going that far. Andy telling Judd not to believe anything unless it comes from 'us'. Judd thinks he can pull Jessie's vote. Andy wants Jeremy up by MVP; Amanda wants Nick. Amanda says it has to be a backdoor; Jeremy will win the veto. Andy considers having Elissa say that Kaitlin goes up if Jeremy goes down. Judd thinks it's a bad idea, it puts a lot on Elissa and she might crack. Andy thinks reassuring her will work. Andy wants to pin the MVP on Elissa even if she doesn't get it. Judd is worried Helen as MVP would put Jessie up. Judd likes his feather in his hat. He says putting everything on Elissa will cause too much fireworks. They agree the goal is Nick or backdooring Jeremy. Amanda/McC go to bed. Andy and Judd talk; Judd thinks Jeremy will get the next HOH. Andy knows Jeremy will come after them. Andy says, 'who knew this MVP would work out so well for us'. Judd says it's a lifesaver. Andy says we outplayed them. Judd hopes Elissa gets it again. Andy mentions the audience booing when Aaryn voted out Elissa. Andy says worst case scenario is three of their side up at the same time. Andy goes in. Judd covering pool table. Goes in.

Amanda thinks Andy is scared, why does he keep talking about numbers? Amanda thinks Aaryn is with McC/Amanda. Final five is Amanda/McC/Aaryn/Kaitlin/GM. Amanda and McC kiss. Amanda thinks the best thing to do is just to hang out together and be cool. McC doesn't like the cameras. They move to the hammock outside. Amanda thanks McC for being there for her today. They cuddle under the blanket. Amanda wants to know what was said to McC upstairs. McC says Andy came up, they said McC totally got f..ked over, and he agreed. Amanda says Andy is everywhere. McC thinks they should play it by ear, compares it to Bruce Lee's fighting, made up as he went along. Amanda says it's so amazing here. McC thinks it's cool to be in California with a pretty girl. McC says in Minnesota they can see every m..f..star. Amanda says he curses a LOT. McC thinks everyone on the internet is pissed they're whispering outside. " F...k you, Internet!". McC knows BB isn't done by Super Pass any more. McC tells Amanda he's going to need some space soon, he's got to wheel and deal and she can't be around. Amanda feels alone they wouldn't be as strong. Amanda doesn't think Judd has Jessie. McC says if J/J hung together they would be stronger in the game. Amanda says McC looks stinky. McC doesn't care what he's wearing. Amanda and McC agree it would be cool to sleep outside. McC thinks Amanda shouldn't flirt with Howard. He's not jealous. Amanda wants him to be jealous to show he cares. McC says in the game he can't show any emotions. They are napping/making out in the hammock. They finally wander to bed after 5am.
