Nicole reflects on the run she and Hardy had controlling the House. For three consecutive weeks, they were HoH and dictated who stayed and who left. "The only thing bad for us is if Monica wins HoH," she told Hardy on the patio. Monica did become HoH and Hardy and Nicole's nightmare came to life: their power was gone and Will would decide which one of them got evicted. Monica says, "It felt good to let them know they were human." Hardy tells Nicole that he's not going to do anything to persuade Will to keep him, and says, "I'm fine with leaving. But if I stay, I'm kicking his ass." Monica believes that Will, who has made no secret of his deceitful approach to the game, deserves the power that she has given him, and Will is running with it. He believes that Nicole is subtly stabbing Hardy in the back, insinuating to Will that she wants him to keep her in the House. He asks Nicole for a haircut, but Nicole says she won't give him one until Friday, or after the eviction has happened. "I want to see her stab Hardy in the back one more time," Will says. He balances the reasons he has for evicting either of them, remembering his promise to Shannon, but saying that, "If I had to decide right now, I'd evict Nicole. She's bossing me around, but with Hardy, I'm having fun." Monica looks at all the machinations in the House and simply says, "I prayed for folk in here. Forgive them, for they know not what they do."
