Recap/preview. Ian kicks himself in the face. I can barely imagine a more useful game skill than that.
Willie believes he can manipulate anyone and everyone. I believe Willie can't spell 'manipulate'. But right now, Kara is the greatest threat the cage has ever known and he must get rid of her. So from his power bed, he tries to get the alliance turned against this awesome force.
Willie then decides to take the coaches out of his game. Because no one tells him what to do. Mostly because he can't spell 'do' either. House meeting! No coaches allowed! Coaches might become players and then they'd know all your secrets!
Up in HoH (and the bed), Willie explains himself. There are key slots next to the mentor pictures on the memory wall. These can be filled with keys at any time, and if the mentors enter the game, he feels they'll win. Ian points out that the cast is in fact unusually small this year: fourteen has been the standard for a while now. Wil desperately wants to take a day off from gametalk. (The feedsters agree: all this group ever does is debate play.) Joe thinks Willie is reading too far ahead in the book. Little does Joe know Willie can barely read.
Next up: boom.
