It was a wild and jam-packed episode of Big Brother as Zach and Frankie made their nominations and the Battle of the Block was played! Read on for a full recap of the episode.

Screen Shot 2014-07-28 at 5.40.39 AM

Tonight’s episode picked up right after Thursday night’s knock-out HOH competition that left Frankie and Zach crowned the two HOH’s this week. Derrick and Nicole, amongst others expressed their happiness that Frankie won the competition but seemed very worried about Zach, who they deem an unpredictable wild card in the game. In the storage room, Cody and Zach celebrated his victory and Cody pointed out that it was all Detonator’s in the finals of the HOH competition.

In the DR, Zach told us that his main target is Amber this week as he heard through the grapevine that she wants to come after him and the other guys in the house. We then flashback to a clip of Amber and Christine talking in the bathroom, where Amber mentions to Christine that they need to start working to get the guys out — she does mention Zach’s name by saying “Why can’t Zach step up?” (this took place right after Amber was nominated last week). Then we see a scene (that was actually from last week as well) where Christine lets the rest of The Detonators alliance know that Amber wants to work her and Nicole and is coming after them, with Zach being the first target.

In the fire bedroom, Donny and Jocasta assume they will be nominated against each other this week as Christine obviously targeted the both of them during the HOH competition (she picked them to face-off against each other). Meanwhile, Frankie and Zach celebrated their HOH victories in the beehive and talked about Amber being the target for the week. Zach told Frankie that he doesn’t mind getting blood on his hands and surely doesn’t care if Caleb is mad at him.

Zach talks to Caleb and lets him know that he’s heard Amber was talking about targeting him last week and therefore he’s thinking about putting her up this week. Caleb suggests he should maybe talk to Amber and flat out ask her who she would nominate if she were to get HOH next week just to see what her response is. In the DR, Caleb says that Amber is forgetting who is keeping her safe in the house. Caleb then pulls Amber into the beehive and questions her on if she said Zach was her target. Amber figures out that it’s someone in the alliance who told Zach this and she says if Zach does put her up that she’s going to give out the names of everyone in the Bomb Squad (Amber and Caleb still think the Bomb Squad exists).

Zach and Frankie get their HOH rooms and everyone goes upstairs to see them. Frankie gets a cute picture of he and his grandfather sunbathing and Zach gets a nice letter from his little brother. Frankie talks with Christine in the beehive and they start talking about plans for the nominations. Zach comes in and tells Christine he wants to put her on the block with Amber and have her throw the Battle of the Block competition, with Amber being the target. Christine smartly refuses, but this makes Zach very mad and he tells her he wants her to take one for the team. She still refuses.

We then get a segment dedicated to Amber and Caleb’s “Big Brother date” which was supremely awkward. One day in the house, Amber asks Caleb (who hates pickles) if he would eat a pickle if she would go on a date with them — she was obviously joking. Caleb, however, decides to actually eat a pick which eventually leads to him setting up two chairs in the backyard for their date. Amber says in the DR that “this was my first and last date with Caleb.”

Later in the HOH room, Frankie, Zach, and Cody discuss further who they will each nominate this week. They decide that it might be better to backdoor Amber this week instead of putting her on the block immediately. Zach talks about putting up Christine because he’s still mad that “she doesn’t pull her weight in the alliance.” Cody tries to be the voice of reason by saying that they just formed the five person alliance a week ago and they can’t even keep each other off the block. Zach isn’t having it.

Zach has a conversation with Nicole in the HOH, with the intention to mess with Christine’s game. He questions Nicole on how much she really trusts Christine. Nicole says she trusts her a lot but doesn’t admit to being in an alliance with her. Zach insinuates that there is more going on with Christine’s game than Nicole knows about (Christine is in The Detonators). This makes Nicole rightfully paranoid and she goes immediately to Christine to ask her about. Christine obviously denies everything about being in another alliance but lets us know in the DR that she isn’t going to let Zach ruin her relationship with Nicole.

We see the formation of a final two deal with Derrick and Cody as a sub-alliance of The Detonators. They name their alliance The Hitmen. This alliance was actually made weeks ago but it’s just now making the edit. Of course there are already a million final two deals in the house (Frankie/Zach, Frankie/Christine, Derrick/Nicole, etc.). Team America gets their next mission and Donny lets Derrick and Frankie know their task for the week. They agree that they can use Zach and his HOH position to help them start an argument between him and other houseguest. When Zach is practicing his speech for nominations he decides he wants to call out Christine and call her a floater. Derrick encourages to give her a chance to respond to his claims, obviously hoping for it to start an argument between the two.

Amber decides to go talk to Zach in the HOH room at 5:00am the night before nominations because she has thrown out his name as her target as Amber let us know in the DR. She asks him if he wanted to talk to her and his response was “not really.” Their conversation is awkward and it doesn’t really get her anywhere with Zach. Zach says in the DR that he’s not putting Amber up directly but he will be backdooring her. Frankie and Zach then make their nominations. Frankie puts up Jocasta and Victoria in hopes that he will stay the sole HOH this week. Zach nominates Christine and Nicole saying that he’s “ready to bathe in blood.” At the nomination ceremony, Frankie tells Victoria and Jocasta he’s putting them up because he’s already nominated them both before and isn’t getting any new blood on his hands. Zach is much more blunt in his speech, comparing Christine to Jenn-city (Big Brother 14) and calling her a floater and calling Nicole a super-fan fruit loop dingus.

Everyone is shocked after the nomination ceremony. Zach lets us know in the DR that his target is still Amber but he wanted to mess with Christine’s game. Team America failed at the nomination ceremony to complete their mission — their only shot left is at the Veto ceremony. Amber, Jocasta, and Hayden comfort a crying Nicole after the nomination ceremony while Christine tells Zach that she’s really mad at him for telling Nicole that she can’t trust her the other night, which Zach denies, but Christine doesn’t buy! Jocasta tries to comfort an upset Victoria after they are both nominated. In the storage room, Frankie denies to Christine and Nicole that he knew anything about Zach’s speech as he can feel the house taking Nicole and Christine’s side.

At the Battle of the Block competition, the houseguests are forced to build a layered weeding cake (while on wires and layering discs) and then they both have to climb atop the wedding cake and both stand on it for at least three seconds without it tumbling over. Christine and Nicole communicate very well and easily beat the disastrously paired Victoria and Jocasta. This dethrones Zach and leaves Frankie as the sole HOH for the week.
