But now isn’t the time to grow complacent so the Hitmen alliance is already plotting next week’s target before they even send this round’s goal off to the Jury House.
Flashback on your Feeds to 8:59PM BBT 8/26 Cams 3/4 to find Derrick and Cody upstairs in the HoH room. They’re working through who they want to go next and things don’t quite overlap. Derrick says he’s satisfied with Cody’s move to go after Donny and leave Frankie in the game this week. I can only assume that’s because Derrick wants the Frankie eviction as a feather in his cap, not Cody’s.
Derrick suggests that he could nominate Victoria and Christine then use Nicole as a renom if Christine escapes eviction with the Veto. Cody pushes back and says Christine is too much of a floater and won’t be a threat to him in any mental competition this season.
Cody instead says they need to go after Frankie. Derrick says he’d be willing to do that if they had the votes. They even think if Caleb wins HoH next week then it’d be possible for him to BD Frankie, but Caleb might unlikely to use Frankie as an original nom.
Cody’s biggest fear is for either Frankie or Christine to get HoH. Why not Nicole? Both Derrick and Cody say Nicole would go after Frankie, not them. I’m not convinced of that at all and we could get a big surprise next week if she pulls off the win on Thursday night.
It’s beyond silly to listen to Cody pine for Frankie’s eviction when he had the easy and obvious opportunity to make it happen. Derrick shut that down though and he may continue to do that even if he has the chance next week.
I think the trust between Derrick and Frankie is good enough to keep them from going after each other for a bit longer while Derrick may be more concerned about Christine turning on him. Derrick did return several times to needing to get Christine out quickly while Cody suggested she was no threat at all. I think Derrick will target Christine if he’s given the chance.
Their talk ends at 9:09PM BBT when Christine comes upstairs. Derrick races to the bathroom while Cody pretends to be asleep and acts surprised when she rubs his leg to “wake” him. They don’t want her to know they’ve been busy plotting.
Who do you think Derrick would go after next if he wins HoH? Is he protecting Frankie for now to make sure he gets the credit or could Derrick be hoping to continue working with Frankie down to the end? Share your thoughts!
