|Howie trying out his reasoning on what he's gonna tell Maggie. He seems to realize the let's all be friends game isn't going to work and plans to say that. Rachel interjects.
Rach - if we backdoor James and Eric comes back...they're gonna convince Eric to say go for Sarah
Howie - i'm not worried about that. they'll take her out before they come after us
Rach - they say that. everybody says a lot of things in this house. iknow how much you want him out. but if we evict maggie and eric comes back, eric and james will clash and that will be great. if we evict maggie and kaysar comes back, we're all going after james anyway. james doesn't stand a chance to get HOH next week
Howie - vote maggie out? cripes every week you're different (in game strategy)
Rachel - no i'm not.
Rachel running different scenarios. Tells HOwie not to stress. Howie says no decisions without you me and janie. He wishes Kay was here. Rach says no we're very intelligent. Rach wishes Howie hadn't shaken Maggies' hand but says not to worry about that now.
Howie says it will be mike or eric not kaysar coming back, because they stirred the house up. Nope now he thinks anyone of them could come back.
Rachel - if eric comes back...that's a nightmare
Howie - we do have to look at life after... he f'd us majorly. she showed she's pretty smart today.
Rachel - start thinking about life after them. somebody is coming back. it works in our favour either way. if eric comes back he's going after james. same with mike or kaysar. he's public enemy #1. if eric comes back and maggie is still here....christ
Howie - we'll be back where we started from
Rachel - exactly. exactly. if you put james and sarah on block, he gets veto and takes himself off, james and eric will team up no matter what happened in the past. eric knowing he can't win without james will take him back. eric's getting a second chance. you have to think of that too.
Howie - can't you be HOH this week? I wanted it. I was fine with it. Until I made decisions... i'm learning. It's going to get me evicted next week (laughs)
Rachel - no. i still say maggie's got to go.
Howie - you've loved her for all these weeks and now you say
Rachel - no i never said i loved her. she's controlling that camp. altho james is awfully friendly towards ivette no matter what he says.
Howie - ivette gives her word she's cutting all ties to him but whatever, what is that worth
Rachel - put maggie up against april or ivette. let james think we'll vote her off and don't. vote off ivette instead and keep maggie here.
Howie - he voted for kaysar. he's the one vote. i knew it was him right away.
Rach - he's shady
Howie - i knew it to create dissention
Rach - he's such an *****. he's such an ass. but in this game i can't blame him. he's doing whatever he can to stay alive. now we gotta work around that.
Howie - America loves him
Rach - ok but we cannot put him off. he'll get off with veto. we can't risk that. maggie's gotta see that. it's already happened twice. you can't put him up it's as simple as that. if we can't backdoor him out, worst case, maggie goes out. eric comes back, he's gunning for james, james never knew we were putting him up. better case, kaysar or mike comes back, we're gunning for james, so is rest of house, it's win win.
