Doomsday Wednesday revealed that Danielle Murphree is the final four Head of Household… we wait for the live feeds to return…
Finally! Someone in the Big Brother control booth flips a switch, the live feeds come on, and my world is right again.
Now, once the hamsters start talking, we'll find out who Danielle has nominated and who has won the Power of Veto. Warning.. SPOILERS ahead.
CLICK CONTINUE READING TO SEE THE SPOILERS!
We learn that Danielle has nominated Ian Terry and Dan Gheesling for eviction.
The game of "Where's the veto necklace?" begins. Danielle, Shane Meaney, and Dan are hanging out in the living room. When Danielle gets up to go to the Diary Room, Shane reminds Danielle to bring her veto necklace.
So, Danielle won the PoV.
Going into this week, I was convinced that Ian would need to win the PoV to survive. Now, I'm not so sure…
Assuming Danielle is loyal to Shane:
Danielle tells Shane she wants Ian to go, but it will be better if Dan takes the fall for it. In order for that to happen, Danielle must use the PoV on Dan and nominate Shane.
The plan: Danielle and Shane force the vote on Dan. Dan evicts Ian. (they assume) Ian goes to jury mad at Dan.
Shane agrees. Shane – the biggest physical threat left in the house – agrees to be nominated at final four, giving the power to Danielle's season-long partner. Shane deserves to walk out that door tonight. Shane even plans his "last plea" speech.
Danielle tells Shane she might blindside Dan at the PoV ceremony.
Shane promises Danielle he'll give her more kisses if he's still in the house tonight. Where's my barf bag?
If Danielle is true to Shane, she's taking an awful risk. There's no guarantee Dan will evict Ian. Danielle knows that Dan has wanted Shane out of the house for weeks. Does she honestly believe Dan will not be the least bit tempted to vote out Shane? The million dollar question is… does she care?
Assuming Danielle is loyal to Dan:
Meanwhile, Dan says to the camera, "Do I take out Shane or do I take out Ian? My only hesitation to take out Shane is, do I still have Danielle taking me to the final two. I think so."
Dan already knows he will be casting the vote? Yup. But.. but.. Danielle just told Shane she might blindside Dan at the PoV ceremony. Exactly.
Is Danielle playing Shane? Danielle convinces Shane that Dan should take the fall for Ian's eviction, Shane agrees to be nominated, Dan votes to evict Shane, Danielle acts shocked… and there's no blood on Danielle's hands for Shane's eviction.
If this is Dan's handiwork, BRAVO! If Danielle leaves the nominations alone, Shane evicts Ian. Danielle is guaranteed final two. By taking Dan off the block, Danielle risks Dan voting out her other "final two," and then Dan's other "final two" stays.
Also, Dan convinces Ian not to talk to Danielle. Dan asks Ian if he trusts Danielle, and he says yes. Dan says to Ian, "Let me see what I can do, but I don't want us both doing it." Ian agrees. So, Ian will not be making any side deals with Danielle or Shane.
UPDATE: The more I watch and read, the more I'm convinced Danielle is NOT lying to Shane. She truly believes Dan is going to vote out Ian. This is going to be awesome! If Dan blindsides Danielle by evicting Shane, she's going to go crazy… just in time for the edurance competition.

BOTH IAN AND SHANE ARE A THREAT TO DAN'S GAME. IF DANIELLE USES THE POWER OF VETO, WHO WILL DAN EVICT? I HOPE SHANE WALKS AND IAN STAYS!
